Yoga pants and exercise [emoji52]
« on: September 10, 2019, 12:14:23 am »
Someday when I'm fully out, I want to start wearing yoga pants to the gym. How do you make that work? Do you tuck throughout your whole workout? I'm sorry if that's too personal. The whole thing feels scary to me. But I hear yoga pants are very comfortable and I want to wear them.

You do if you want to hide your equipment. I'm post orchiectomy, I don't hide Johnny when I wear yoga pants.

At one time I wore compression pants under my skin-tight gym/yoga gear to keep everything tucked away and hidden. I now wear compression pants under my skin-tight gym/yoga gear to stop my innards bursting out in a cataclysmic technicolour spray of over-exertion.
They also hide my love handles  :laugh:

As you continue on HRT, tucking will become less and less of an issue as significant shrinkage will occur, and be much easier to manage.

They're very comfy, I have enough though.

I've been wearing yoga pants to the gym for years, no hrt, no tucking, no problems. I've seen this sort of question posted here and elsewhere and I have been responding to not worry about it.

But I am beginning to wonder. The gym I go to is a nicely run place (YMCA) free of the extreme lifters, although there are men and women with well sculpted bodies. I have seen women with overly revealing tops asked to put on a more modest top and men who take off their t shirts to put them back on. Nobody on the staff or other members have ever said anything to me about my yoga pants and racer back top. But with as often as I see this concern, I am am beginning to wonder if, while my yoga pants are not a real issue, they are being tolerated like the member using the equipment wrong, but not Wrong.

I'm not going to change, and when the gym reopens, I'll go back wearing my yoga pants since I really do like them (and I can't stand the feel of the "leather" used on the benches on my skin).

So, if you want to wear yoga pants, go ahead. I find them to be comfortably warming in the cool mornings and breathably cool when I get hot. And I don't have to touch the leather parts!
