You're in love with your new yoga pants, and the tight fabric feels great on your curves. After a couple of asanas or walking to class, you suddenly notice that something has gone wrong. Suddenly, your stomach drops and you feel like you've been completely exposed. While it's admirable for society to stop shaming women's bodies, adjusting a camel toe in public is still awkward. Here are some yoga pants tips that will help keep them fitting over your curves.

What is a camel toe?

When a woman's labia majora is covered in tight-fitting clothes, the term 'camel toe' refers to the discomfort and appearance of the toe. Most of the time, this is caused by clothes such as yoga pants, fitness wear, and leggings. However, it can also be caused by other factors like accidental labia-outlining.

Why does a camel toe happen?

No Panties

One of the main reasons why women get camel toe is because they don't wear panties under their yoga pants. This is because the lower layer of fabric between the body and the outside world can get wedged in. The easiest way to fix this issue is to wear panties underneath your activewear.

Improper Fit

There are various types of legging that are ideal for different body shapes. For instance, some women find that their camel pants toe is caused by the fit of certain yoga pants. Over-stretched fabric can also dig into various parts of the body, such as the hips, rear thighs, and knees. To avoid this, try wearing yoga leggings that are too loose or are prone to riding up and down.

How to save you from a camel toe moment

If you're worried that your favorite yoga outfit or athleisure will be ruined due to the fit of your camel pants toe, here are some simple steps to prevent it. You don't need to replace all of your yoga pants.

Avoid Specific Fabrics

Certain fabrics are known to ride up more than others. For instance, polyester, cotton, and linen are typically the most common causes of camel toe. Also, over-stretching and super thin materials are prone to going up the crease eventually. To avoid this, opt for fabric blends such as nylon, bamboo, and viscose.

Darker Color of Leggings

These light colored camel pants are not always good for squat or downward dog. They can reveal all the curves and creases, though they are not always in a good way. If you are unsure about their fit, try wearing darker opaque leggings.

Size Up in Leggings

I've tried to squeeze myself into pants that are too small for me. They're so cute, but it's just not worth it. I would try to stretch the fabric to its maximum width, but it's just not enough. Sometimes, it's best to exchange or return your old pair of leggings in order to ensure that they don't dig into your body parts. Athletic wear often runs small, so it's best to buy a size up.Cotton or polyester leggings are typically more prone to shrinking in hot laundry cycles. If you're planning on wearing an active pair of pants, make sure that they're a size up to ensure that they're both 'squat proof' and 'cameltoe-resistant'.

Wear a Long Tank Top

A long tank top or tunic is a modest alternative to regular-length yoga tops. Longer tops provide more coverage and are less likely to cause issues with camel toes. The seamless CRZ YOGA Long-length workout tank is our favorite because it's long enough to cover the booty and the bottom of most body types.

Wear Leggings with Liner

Many high-end brands have started adding underwear into their leggings, which is great for people who like to go commando but don't want to wear panty lines or camel toes. These are typically more expensive due to the complexity of the pattern and the thicker fabric. Ultracor leggings are the cream of the crop when it comes to having a shapewear and liner built into the design.

Wear Leggings with a Gusset

A gusset is a type of fabric that adds a layer of protection to a garment's components. It's becoming more common in the activewear industry due to the odd looking and uncomfortable looking of some of the legging's components, such as the toe. A legging with a gusset can also help with free movement and reduced chafing.

Wear Leggings with Flat Front Panels

There are many different ways to sew and pattern yoga pants, and mass-produced leggings are typically made in sweatshops that employ poorly-paid workers and cheap fabrics. These types of pants are typically less comfortable and are more likely to cause a misshape after washing. Make sure that the designs of the products you buy are not made with stitching that can lead to a front wedgie or camel toe.

Wear Patterned Leggings

To add a bit of interest to your outfit, try wearing patterned leggings. These will help camouflage your camel toe. Coobie naked feeling yoga pants feature a wide range of patterns and textures, and they have a built-in gusset to prevent the toe from getting too exposed.

Wearing a Panty Liner

If you're a fan of wearing leggings and underwear , then a panty liner is a great way to hide a toe. There are various types of panty liner that are made for different types of underwear , such as regular panties and organic cotton ones. They can last for a long time and are eco-friendly, but disposables can get expensive if you're constantly wearing them.

Wear Thick Fabrics

Although it's common knowledge that thicker materials will keep you from revealing, did you know that they can also help with sweat-wicking? We avoid thin yoga pants due to how they lack coverage and durability. Also, cheap thin leggings are not ideal for toe.

Final Thoughts

If you're planning on wearing a pair of tight leggings or a camel toe, then Coobie is all for it. However, if you're a woman who wants to get rid of the toe, or you want to cover it with a jacket, then I recommend that you be genuine in your choice. Although there are many tricks and tips about how to wear a camel toe, I still think it's appropriate to have one. It's just a combination of your natural shape and clothing, and it doesn't need to be fixed. In fact, I'm here to tell you that it's not a reason for concern.
