Demand and popularity
Demand for comfortable active, athletic, sports and casual wear has increased since the turn of the 21st century. reported their women's business comprised 7 billion in 2010 and the larger market grew to.6 billion by 2015. Nike claims the driving factor has been by the demand for fashionable workout gear that is also flattering. New colors, patterns, and structural design of yoga pants created more versatility and increased their wear in public settings. Author Mae Anderson described the new craze of yoga pants outside the gym by calling them the "new jeans."
Many high-end fashion houses and mass-market trend-chasers have capitalized on the growth of the modern sportswear market, leading an emphasis on technical fabrics and garments that facilitate wearing them as everyday dress. Market research analysts have sought to explain the trend by referencing the extension of work hours in major cities across North America, leading to a "day-to-night" than a "gym-to-work"—while other explanations cite the North American passion for fitness and healthy living.
Wearing in public
In the United States, reaction to the wider adoption of yoga pants proved somewhat controversial for schools. Some schools adopted banning yoga pants for all students, or banning them only for female students. magazine argued such bans are largely gendered, focusing on the damage caused by "distraction" by girls; similar complaints caused a ban in, that was quickly reversed.
There are others who agree with banning yoga pants in public. Most often the reasoning for disagreeing with wearing yoga pants publicly is that they promote a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Amanda Hallay, professor of fashion and cultural history at New York City's, was interviewed for her opinion on yoga pants being a replacement for jeans. She said, "Yoga pants are a step above pajamas and we don't wear pajamas out to lunch, and we certainly don't wear them to work. Pajamas are for sleeping in, and ergo, not appropriate to wear in any other setting. The same can be said for yoga pants. Yoga pants are to be worn while doing yoga." Yoga pants being worn in public can be perceived as inappropriate and unattractive. According to Hallay, to promote a more business-like or mature persona, a person should dress as such.
In the U.S. state of, some members unsuccessfully attempted to ban the wearing of in public of "any device, costume, or covering that gives the appearance of or simulates the genitals, pubic hair, anus region, or pubic hair region." The author of the legislation, Republican David Moore, acknowledged that the measure could extend to "tight beige garments" and stated: "Yoga pants should be illegal in public anyway." Moore later said that the latter comment was an "off-the-cuff" joke, although the stood by its reporting.
