About the Brand: Teeki is a vision come true for owner and designer Lindsay Hemric. A true lover of the earth and sustainability, Lindsay looked for a way to make her design ideas come to life through eco-friendly processes. In her search she came upon recycled water bottle clothing that lended itself perfectly to what was then just a small line of bikinis. Today Lindsay is now making hot yoga leggings, bell bottoms and cute little "sun" shorts that are perfect for anything from hot yoga to a dip in the ocean. What started as a small brand trying to make a difference one bikini at a time has since evolved into an internationally recognized brand changing the world through the re-purposing of landfill water bottles. The sexy yoga pants are made in the USA with commitment to sustainability, fair labor, safe practices and maintaining a small business mindset throughout their community.
Key Pieces to Look for: Keep an eye out for Teeki's signature printed leggings, and one of their first prints, the Cloud Hot Pant. The designer draw most of their design inspiration from the earth and this ethereal print perfectly emulates a sherbet colored sunset. Most of their prints are limited edition. So keep an eye out for new arrivals and if you see something you love, get it now. It most likely won't be around for too long.
Where to Wear: All of the hot pants are most often seen in the yoga studio, especially a heated one, and at the beach. The second skin fit lends itself perfectly to yoga and the silky smooth fabric moves with your body, stays in place and breathes like no other hot yoga pants you've worn before They are surprisingly great for swimming too. Wear their sun shorts and hot pants for a day by the pool or at the beach. You can get your leggings completely soaked through and they will still be dry in 20 minutes or less. They are also perfect for SUP, spin, pole fitness, outdoor adventure and transforming into a mermaid.
Why We Love: When we first heard of the brand a few years ago, we were a little skeptical. "Plastic water bottle clothing? That doesn't sound like you can move in it, and your legs will probably suffocate in a hot yoga class." But we took the samples for a test at our local yoga studio and have never looked back. We were completely wowed by the fit, the feel and the unbeatable performance. The brand won our hearts over with their unique fit, imaginative prints and dedication to the earth.
Sizing Feedback: All of the leggings runs true to size and their garments are made with a lot of stretch. Fabric stretches to fit your shape and recovers in the wash without ever losing it's shape or getting "baggy knee" syndrome. If you have slimmer hips and/or waistline we recommend sizing down since the waistband is elastic free and needs a tight fit to stay in place.

"Great fitting tights! these tights fit true to size and are super comfy. They're like a second-layer of skin. I'm a size 26/27 depending on different brands and the small fits great. The larger width on the waist band makes them so much more worthwhile. Thanks" - (via Evolvefitwear.com)

"Very happy with these! When I first pulled them out of the bag, I was a little dubious. As mentioned below the colours are slightly different from the picture, and I wasn't sure about the feel of the fabric. However, after wearing them for only ten minutes or so I feel in love and now want to buy more Teeki wear! I LOVE the feel of the fabric now, it is very thin and light but flattering and feels great to wear. I sized up one size (normally I am between an XS and a S) and the S fits very well, and is perfect length for my 5'5'' height." - (via Evolvefitwear.com)
