Current Obsession: ALO Yoga Goddess Legging
Meet the yoga pants that take performance apparel to the next level.
It's no secret to anyone who knows me that I wear workout clothing every second I can. Whether I'm going for a run, hitting up yoga or beginning a Netflix binge, my uniform of choice will always be leggings and a slouchy tee. And trust me, if I could find a way to wear leggings to work, I would.
Because my love of leggings runs deep, I've been on the hunt for a pair that meets my lofty requirements, which are threefold. They must be: practical, comfortable and, most importantly, flattering. When a pair of Alo's Goddess Ribbed Leggings ($94) found their way onto my desk, I was eager to see if I had found my match.
It appears as if I have. After first wearing the Goddess leggings, it's clear to see they are made for yogis in mind. And although I must admit my yoga game is off, these performance leggings are still a welcome addition to this runner's wardrobe. With moisture-wicking properties, sweat is pulled away from the body, thus fulfilling my practical requirement. And for those of us germaphobes, the anti-bacterial technology within the fabric prevents the growth of odor-causing microbes.
In addition to being a very practical legging, the Goddess pants are comfy. Really comfy. StretchFlex technology within the fabric allows for comfort and freedom of movement, ideal for running races or going from the couch to the kitchen during a Netflix session—depending on your hobby. The ribbing on the leg allows for seamless movement, while the extra-long legs cover the heels for extra grip during yoga.
But beyond being a true practical athletic garment that is beyond cozy to wear, the Goddess legging actually flatters my body, making me feel, well, like a goddess. The slim inner and outer thigh seams lift where a woman needs a little extra lift. The wider waistband contours and holds things in when they really need to be held in, which as anyone who's ever worn leggings knows, is really important.
With all three of my requirements met and a series of colorful colors to go with every workout outfit I could possibly have, I think it's safe to say I truly have met my match with the Alo Goddess Ribbed Legging.
