What To Look Out For in Plus Size Yoga Pants
When looking for yoga pants it's a really good idea to look for leggings made from moisture wicking materials.
Instead of absorbing sweat, a moisture-wicking fabric collects it and draws it to the surface of the garment where it can dissipate.
When it comes to sports and outdoor activities, polyester and spandex are two materials that work particularly well in wicking away moisture. In a study of T-shirt materials from 2014, it was discovered that synthetic polyester was more breathable and more effective at wicking moisture than 100% cotton.
The purpose of moisture-wicking fabric is to keep the wearer dry and comfortable by preventing sweat build-up. By maintaining a constant body temperature while exercising, moisture-wicking technologies can assist prevent overheating, while ventilation textiles improve airflow.

Is it better to size up or down yoga pants?
The size is too small if the fabric becomes sheer when squatting. You should size up one or two sizes if your leggings keep falling down. If your leggings are too big at the knees, you should size down. Leggings should never be loose at the knees.
