Office Pants You Can Move, Stretch, and Breathe In
A friend of mine told me the other day that she fled from the corporate world largely due to the discomfort she felt dressing up in too-tight cute clothing, then just sitting under fluorescent lights and typing stuff into her computer.
Wow, can I ever relate to that! Sarcastically, she said, “Good thing I looked super cute for people I only talked to over the phone.” If only distant clients knew the pain and struggle we go through to wear women’s office attire all day. I would argue that nylons should be considered a morning workout all on their own.
Luckily for us working women, there is a comfort-revolution going on in the United States. Up until now, many brands have tried, and a many have failed. We don’t want to look like we’re wearing pajamas in the office… but we also don’t want to vacuum-seal our organs as we sit for 8-plus hour days.
Well, ladies, it’s a new dawn for women’s officewear. Betabrand is the first to succeed in creation of a comfortable-chic office yoga pant. Believe me, other hybrid office pants don’t hold a candle to these babies. Farethewell, jeggings! Thank you for playing.
Read on for the enlightening details of this giant leap for womankind:
“Betabrand is amending corporate fashion bylaws with a new line of ultra-comfortable stretch pants with sophisticated styling. Since unveiling Dress Pant Yoga Pants as a crowdfunding experiment in January, the online clothier has sold over 9,000 pairs, and can barely keep up with demand.”
Ah, to consider the possibilities… I can wear these pantaloons for my semi-judged office yoga breaks. In a real pinch, I could even wear them to yoga after work. My legs will rejoice in the newfound presence of – what’s this?! – circulation.
Betabrand’s Dress Pant Yoga Pants are available in 3 styles and colors, which have potential to cover every workday if circulated strategically. Did I mention they do magical things for the derrière?
Okay, I know you want a pair, too… buy them here ($88).
