Yoga leggings. They’re a phenomenon. Either you hate ’em or you love ’em. You’re a lover? Then you might find this review helpful in upgrading your wardrobe. You’re a hater? Please read on, and I might just convince you to give these leg huggers a try.I am definitely a lover of yoga pants. More of some than of others (depending on how they make my butt look, which is – of course – very important in my yoga practice). But yeah, I do love a nice quality, comfortable yogi pants.
Souplesse ObligeA couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon the webshop Souplesse Oblige. It’s owned by a sweet lady from Belgium named Heidi Wittevrongel. Heidi is a passionate dancer and yogi. After suffering an injury from dancing, she discovered yoga and all its benefits. She’s dived right into it and is doing a teacher training at Yogalife to learn more about the yoga philosophy. Heidi firmly believes in wearing (and offering) dance/yoga outfits that are comfortable and elegant. Outfits that you like to wear outside the class as well. Preferably eco-friendly brands. So about a month ago, she sent me these ‘Star Fruit Ombre’ surf and yoga leggings by My Mantra Active to try out.
What do I think of these Star fruit Ombre Leggings?
Pros: The pants fit perfectly. They don’t crawl up or drop down.They hug my legs beautifully without stretching out. They’re so soft, I keep caressing my own legs. Which is a nice side-effect.The print is beautiful, and the fabric is fast-drying without losing colour after washing. Designed to be high-waisted and heel huggers, they stay in place. And the best part; they’re made of recycled plastic bottles. Eco-friendly. Yay!
Cons: The only cons I can think of is that I don’t own another pair (yet). Okay, if I have to say something, it would be the price. Although, they’re definitely worth it.
What is My Mantra Active Wear?My Mantra Active Wear is a brand from the UK with a second home in Thailand. It’s a small unique brand set up by two people crazy about yoga, surf, health, fitness and travel. They try to use as much eco-friendly FairTrade fabric as they can. You can wear the pants to the gym, the beach, to yoga and in the surf. Or, just like I do, to the supermarket.

- Size ordered: M. They’re a small fit (so it says on Souplesse Oblige as well), so you better order a bigger size if you’re unsure. I usually wear small, but this medium fits perfectly.
