It can't be because I'm skinny, because I see dozens of skinny girls in Yoga Pants and still look good. I'm tall though (5'9), but yoga pants just DROWN on me! It doesn't show off my butt AT ALL, in fact it makes it look non existent. I can't get them in a size smaller because then they'll be high waters!!







I wanna wear yoga pants too!!

Wear cropped ones. No length requirement.

But personally, I think 90% of the women I see walking around in yoga pants look ridiculous. They are closer to pajamas or leggings than they are to actual pants. And while they make sense for exercising, they don't need to be worn while you're grocery shopping or going to the doctor's office or going to the bank.

Ever try tall sizes? Different lines have different lengths too. Where did you try to buy? What was the cut? (juniors, miss, womens?)

Oh thanks, they look good! They look like they'd attach to me nicely.

Yeh their inseam is only about 31 or so. I am not as tall as you are but I sometimes experience that leg length problem in certain things.

Shop Foldover Yoga Pants For Women From Alloy

"These are extremely comfortable and great length! I'm 5'10" 140 pounds and ordered 37" inseam. These have even gone through the dryer and still plenty long enough."

That one has a review that is positive from a taller person. I know when I used to get pants from alloy they generally ran a bit longer in general. It was forever ago though but its worth a try for the price. They come in a 32'', 35'' and a 37'' so you won't have to worry about guessing about being long enough.
They also cut the hips straighter so its perfect if you wear juniors usually.

Not everyone looks good in yoga pants. But, just about every avid yoga practitioner DOES.

For me it all depends on the cut. SOme pants are more like leggings with slight flares at the bottom and some are cut with a little wider leg. I have a few pairs I really like, however I do not wear them as everyday wear. I wear them for pilates, walking or any kind of exercising and that's it. If you catch me in public in them it is because I am on my way to or from class.

I have some yoga pants, but I don't wear them much because I'm not crazy about how I look in them either. For some reason, they don't look flattering on me. I feel your pain.
