There’s a reason moms joke about always wearing their yoga pants... it’s because they really do live in them. But that doesn’t mean they have to be worn out and saggy. Here are the best yoga pants we’ve found.

We all vow that we'll change out of our yoga pants before noon, but so many get wrapped up in all that we're trying to accomplish that we are rarely able to follow through on that goal.

So if we're going to wear them, we should at least make them sassy and stylish.

Five great yoga pants you can feel good about wearing out of the house

Lululemon calls their Groove Pant the "Holy Grail of yoga pant" and they are spot on with that description.

These amazing pants have four-way stretch and a waistband that stays flat, so you'll love the way they move with you. Available in 28 fun color combinations, these pants are worth every single penny.

How to extend the life of your yoga pants

Lululemon offers some helpful tips to keep your investment looking good for a long time to come:

  • To best protect your pants in the laundry, machine wash them on cold and hang them to dry.
  • Wash your yoga pants with other synthetic fabrics only.
  • Avoid washing them with items such as cotton towels and hoodies, since the fluffy fabric will stick to your pants.
  • Skip the fabric softener since it binds with your yoga pant's ability to wick away sweat.
