Allow me to introduce myself! My name is Laura and if you’ve ever called or emailed Evolve Customer Support you most likely have spoken with me. I’ve answered your questions from, “will this show my underwear?” to “what do you recommend for yoga leggings for men?” One might say, I’m a seasoned pro in helping all of our amazing customers find exactly what they are looking for in yoga gear and activewear.
One of the questions I get most frequently is regarding one of our most popular brands Teeki. Teeki, as you probably already know, makes amazing hot pants, capris, shorts, and bell bottoms with cool prints made in the USA from recycled water bottles. However, it can often be a tricky thing to find your size sight unseen.
I thought I’d help you by putting together this guide based on feedback from customers and personal use (I own probably 7 pairs of these amazing yoga leggings).
Oh the Stretchy Possibilities:
Although Teeki has 4 different sizes, I’d say that the leeway between sizes is one of the coolest things about Teeki Hot Pants. This summer I was hanging with my sister on the river. I usually buy Teeki pants in an extra small or small, but my sister who is quite taller than me usually would wear a size Medium. She wanted to borrow some of my Teeki pants to go Stand Up Paddle Boarding. Feeling a bit apprehensive and over protective of my precious Teeki hot pants, I reluctantly handed over my extra small teeki pants. I was pretty amazed when she put them on with no trouble, and even more amazed when she handed them back at the end of the day and they had snapped right back to an extra small. Behold the Teeki magic! I would not have suggested she purchase an extra small, but the quality and stretch of this super cool fabric blew my mind.
The Teeki Sheer Madness Sheerness Test:
I have a lot of customers worry about sheerness, and that is understandable. In recent news, we know of one famous yoga wear company who came under fire for super expensive unintentionally peek-a-booty leggings. (..yeah we all know who I’m talking about..) I wanted to test the sheerness of these pants. I grabbed a La Vie Boheme yoga mat that was close to flesh color, but had black stripes on it, and a pair of Teeki Deer Medicine Hot pants in a size small.
You can see that even when stretched as far as I could pull them across the mat, the lines are just barely visible. Of course we always recommend coordinating your underwear to your yoga pants just to be safe regardless of pants or brand.
Of course any stretchy fabric will start to show sheerness, which is why we have the 4 different sizes! (P.S. If you love this cool yoga mat check out our Yoga Mats Page!)
Another questions that we get a lot is what do the sizing charts mean? Usually we get our sizing info from the manufacturers. Sometimes those manufactures are so busy making super rad yoga pants that the sizing charts we get make for more questions than answers! So, I love you all so much I made my own Teeki sizing chart just for you!
Usually we’d suggest that customers follow this for standard dress size measurements:
XS: 0-2 // SM: 2-4 // MED: 6-8 // LG: 8-10
The waist measurements are taken with pants lying flat from hip-to-hip. Inseam is from gusset to bottom, and top to bottom is the measurement from the top of the waist band to the ankle of the pant.
You might ask what STRETCHHHH WAIST might mean? I stretched those babies as far as I could in the waist to see the range of sizes they could fit! .. See?! Stretchy possibilities!!
I really hope that this guide has helped you, and remember if you have any questions just send them my way at email@example.com or hop on chat and one of our awesome customer service people will help you to pick the perfect pair of Teeki pants!
