Salamba Yoga Capris
Wonderful, versatile capri!
I adore capri pants. These are among the nicest I have for the following reasons:
1. Soft, quality fabric. These feel delicious on, drape beautifully and hold up well.
2. Super comfortable. I love the relaxed fit in the seat and hips. The deep waistband is also great -- comfy and holds its shape.
3. Great styling. These have that bit of extra design which takes them to the next level. The slightly harem-y features also mean these can be worn as serious pants (not just for workout).
4. Versatile. My favorite part is that these capris are long enough to wear full length (bringing them to mid calf on 5'-8" me) -- but are also constructed so you can push up to just below the knee for a different look -- and they stay there!
I just hope Sweaty Betty keeps making these! Next year I would love a pair in a dark brown and in a white -- and I will have to replace my black and grey pairs eventually, too!

Recently purchased these in black as the grey has completely sold out. I'm a dress size 6, so opted for the xs size, the waist band is sufficiently wide to either tuck a vest top (as I do, with the capris riding low on my hips) or can be worn higher up waist. The length, although a Capri is a little long for me as I am under 5ft 2ins, this however can be remedied by making a slight adjustment to the bottom of the capris (sewing an inch into the inside leg) and tugging the bottom higher up my calf. In all very comfortable for yoga or pilates...would highly recommend.

These capris are so comfortable that I forgot I was wearing them - no adjustments throughout class and I didn't have interference with the dropped crotch in any poses. The narrowing of the leg at the bottom allows you to adjust how where you wear them, it was much more comfortable than an elastic band and they stayed in place. They are a unique look and very flattering - I am surprised how much I love wearing them. They drape nicely and you can wear whatever underwear you want. I'm 5'5" and 112lb and I ordered a small.

I bought these hoping for a flattering, looser fit capri that I could use for Pilates. They're really unflattering - I'm not big - 5'9" and a size 10, but they made me look really fat. I changed them for the dance capri, which are more expensive but a much better fit.

Lovely pair of capris with decent leg length
Really like this style of pant - like the loose fit around hips and thighs but the fitted cuff means they stay in place. Also the legs are long - I have a capri pant that actually reaches my calf rather than hovering around the knee. Very comfortable, hope you keep this style.

I love the feel of the material. Lots of room to move into different positions. I won't be going back to leggings for Yoga.

very comfortable capri
Actually bought these for 2 reasons; teaching energetic dance moves and also because they are so super comfy I didn't want to take them off. I love the versatility of the leg length. Even when pulled up to the knee they don't get bulky or cumbersome. Very lightweight without being flimsy or losing warmth but also sweat wicking

Fit perfectly and super comfortable but perhaps a bit pricey.

Great for hot yoga.
The fabric is light and soft easy to wear with the loose fiiting making these perfect to stretch.
They look ok to keep on with t-shirt or hoodie to spend your day in.

great for yoga
pants are great and for Hot Yoga they keep you reletively dry. I shoul dhave brought a smaller size as they are very generous in the size. Will be getting a second pair though :) although everytime i wear them my husbands sings "Hammer Time"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
