So, you’ve (finally) booked yourself into a yoga class. Now, your challenge is to choose a pair of tights to wear to said class.

Of course, you need tights that won’t fall down, are not too sheer, and hug, lift, and flatter in all the right the places. But, it doesn’t hurt if they look cute, too. With so many brands to choose from, though, we know that it can be pretty tough to find a pair that meets this criteria.

That’s why we reached out to six of the best yogis to find out which yoga tights they rely on for their practice. Click through the gallery below for the scoop!

1. Bianca Cheah

Top pick: Alo Yoga High Waist Airbrush Legging

“When I practice, I need to know that the tights I wear not only feel comfortable during my workout but actually work with my every pose from start to end. These Alo tights hold me in place, support every movement and never slide down.”

2. Erica Tenggara

Top pick: Lululemon Align Pant II

“My favourite yoga tights are the Lululemon Align II pants. They offer the best “naked” feeling and are not see through. Plus, the high waisted style is great for bloated days and makes my butt look seriously good! They’re pricey but worth the money.”

Top pick: Koral Lustrous High Rise Legging

“As a teacher, I have the perfect excuse to wear my yoga pants 24/7. My go-to favorite brand is Los Angeles-based, Koral Activewear. They have designed a sophisticated, cool, sexy twist on fitness gear. Their apparel is both functional and fashionable. My essential is the Lustrous High Rise liquid-like legging. My yoga pants need to transition me from teaching, working out, meetings and slipping a pair of heels on for a night out. They are comfy, figure flattering and well priced.”

Top pick: Sweaty Betty Zero Gravity Run Leggings

“My favourite yoga tights are the Sweaty Betty Zero Gravity Run Leggings. The lightweight fabric is a game changer. It actually feels like you’re not even wearing pants—what can be better than that? And they always come out in new colours, and prints once in a while!”
