I wear yoga clothes 4 to 5 times a week when I head out to yoga class. I pop them on just before I leave, and take them off as soon as I can when I get home. Reason is that I cannot handle wearing these clothes for a moment longer than I have to. Why is that?
I have good body image so it's not that. My yoga clothes are nice, fit well and are great quality. They are in my happy colours too. My citron yoga mat matches my citron yoga jacket (you get the picture.....). So it's none of those reasons either.
I did some soul searching about this, and have come to the conclusion that I intensely dislike the feeling of the fabrics and the look of the silhouettes - unless I am in yoga practice. I would SO MUCH RATHER wear something casual that's not sports gear. That's true to who I am, so when I wear yoga clothes longer for when is absolutely necessary - I feel very off.
I am surrounded by people who wear gear type yoga clothes outside yoga class by choice BECAUSE it's comfortable to them on all sorts of levels. (People of ALL ages). I couldn't feel more differently to these people, and was wondering if any of this resonated with you?
