What Are the Best Clothes for Bikram Yoga?


The best clothing to wear to Bikram yoga is stretchy, form-fitting attire, such as cropped yoga pants, tights, shorts, sports bras, tank tops, swim trunks or swimsuits. Heavier clothing, such as sweat pants and t-shirts, can hamper the practice because it becomes weightier and more uncomfortable with each pose.

Because the temperature in Bikram yoga studios is set between 95 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit, practitioners sweat a lot. It is best that the clothing fits as comfortably and close to the skin as possible so that the practitioner can focus on executing the positions properly without excess material or sweat getting in the way.
