Anyone who practices yoga knows not all yoga gear is created equal. Plenty of yoga pants end up ripped or lose their fit in a short period of time—and there’s nothing quite as annoying as a sagging pair of yoga pants, especially when you’re trying to keep your focus during class on the mat. Add in the demands of a practice like hot yoga and all that sweat and repeated laundry can shorten the lifespan of everything from workout tops to pants. Fortunately, some yoga gear is better made than others. The following yoga pants, top, sports bra, mat, and blanket are yoga ready and will stand up to the test of time and heavy usage. Even better, many of these items are sustainably and ethically produced—and, they’re all gorgeous, earning you extra style points.
