Yoga Pants Squat Test: Which Brands To Trust

So, what is the squat test anyway? Simply put, it’s when you literally squat in your brand new yoga leggings in bright lighting to see if they become see-through when you bend. And, why is this even a thing? Because nothing is worse than when you’re in downward dog in the middle of class and your yoga pants are see-through!

Utilizing the squat test can save you from some embarrassment in the gym or in the studio. Plus, it also helps knowing which yoga brands work better than others for your fitness activities. Since there are now so many different brands available, it’s only to be expected that not all brands are made of the same quality. Basically, if one brand tends to continuously be see-through when you perform the yoga pants squat test, then chances are those leggings aren’t right for you.

Generally, yoga leggings that pass the squat test will come from high end yoga brands that put the time in to create high quality yoga apparel. The golden rule is you get what you pay for, right? Spending $80 on a pair of leggings from one of the best yoga clothes brands versus spending $20 at Walmart will, of course, give you different squat test outcomes. Investing your money in the best yoga leggings brands will give you more durable, functionable and longer-lasting yoga pants.

Well, then there’s affordable yoga clothing subscription boxes like YogaClub that delivers high end yoga brands for a fraction of the cost! You can sign up for a monthly or quarterly subscription that comes with a three piece outfit (leggings, top and bra) for a starting price of $79! That’s three pieces of apparel for cheaper than a pair of leggings!

A few years ago, I joined YogaClub and ordered their yoga clothes subscription box so I could find more brands than just the ones I was buying for years. I was excited about this decision as the price of the box was definitely affordable considering each box had three pieces of clothing for the same amount of money I would usually spend on a bra! Can I get a heck yeah?! So long story short, I fell in love!

Signing up for YogaClub is just a great way to discover new trends and new brands, while guaranteeing you’ll always get high quality yoga gear. If you’re not a fan of yoga clothes subscription boxes, then no worries! They just launched their yoga Marketplace where you can shop piece-by-piece at still a super affordable price! Regardless of how you decide to sign up for YogaClub, you’ll receive yoga pants that are definitely squat test approved. 

Now, back to the leggings squat test. Over the years, I have received many different pairs of leggings from a broad spectrum of brands and, though I love them all, I have narrowed it down to a few brands I think you will love. When practicing the squat test, there are a few things to look for: material, fit, comfort, durability, and, of course, are they see-through?

I have received all of these amazing yoga pants from my YogaClub box and have tested them out just for you!
