When I began doing yoga three years ago I didn’t give much thought to what I wore (or to what mat I used). It took a while for me to consider why what I wore was important but I think it happened right around the time I left yoga class with a big sweat patch on my butt (sexxxxxy) and my old sports bra cutting into my flesh.
It was time. Time to get rid of the Target leggings that lost elasticity halfway through class and began to sag in the butt. Time to buy new sports bras that fit my boobs and my shoulders. Time to get sports underwear that didn’t get scrunched up.
So here it is you guys - the underwear, the pants, the brands you need to successfully getting through a power, sweaty, vinyasa or even hatha class without sweaty butts or boobs (or at least no sweaty boob or butt patches?).
Made in California and created by a Bikram yogini, Onzie’s pieces are cute and affordable. Oh, it’ll also keep you dry and chafe-free! Also this:
