The 23 Best Yoga Shorts, According to Reviews

As many of our yoga practices have moved from the living room and back out into the world of in-person classes, it should come as no surprise that we’ve become more invested in what we wear while we get our sweat on. While I, admittedly, always aim to put together a chic ensemble for class, functionality is also a crucial factor to keep in mind—especially when it comes to yoga shorts. Not all yoga shorts are created equal, and finding the right pair can prove to be a frustrating feat. Some just simply aren’t viable options—they may not provide enough stretch, or they ride up or down as you move through your flow. Others may be suitable for a relaxed morning session but aren’t breathable or sweat-wicking enough to get you through an intense vinyasa class. With this in mind, I went on a mission to find the very best of the best: I scrolled through my favorite activewear sites and read through countless reviews to find the ones worth our hard-earned cash. From short-shorts to those hitting just above the knee, comfy ribbed materials to high-tech performance fabrics, there’s something for everyone’s preferences and needs. (And, yes, all of them are cute.) Without further ado, keep scrolling for the 23 best yoga shorts that money can buy.
