I go to yoga once or twice a week, it’s something I really enjoy and most of the time I don’t pay much attention to the people around me. Just mind my own business on my own little mat and try to do the poses as gracefully as a I can (which isn’t very).
Yet every now and then someone comes in that you can’t help but notice, either they are handsome (wink, wink), really good (envy) or have on yoga pants that they should BURN. A lady showed up one day and sauntered in like she was all that and a bag of chips. Which was already a little weird as the studio I go to is pretty low key and is big reason I like it there, it’s not a fashion show.
So this woman, she stood out in her shiny new yoga outfit. To start with the top was too tight, I understand that you want a yoga top to be snug to keep everything in place when you’re twisting, bending and such….but this was WAY too tight. Those girls were gonna pop out with one wrong turn. She looked like she had tried to squeeze into her 13 year old daughters top (I don’t know if she had a daughter, this is just what it looked like) but the worst part is that it looked like she had also borrowed the 13 year olds pants. Or maybe the worst part was the make-up….. make-up? At yoga? Really?
Anyway she wasn’t heavy but the pants were so tight they were giving her muffin top and camel toe. The problem with camel toe is once you notice it you’re like a deer in the headlights, you can’t look away. You keep trying to glance back trying to figure out what you are seeing, how it is doing that, it just looks so wrong and really uncomfortable.
She didn’t seem to notice but once in the studio she ended up in front of me, she adjusted her pants (which I thought “Yeah that must be UNCOMFORTABLE”).
Then the class started, after the first downward dog I stepped up to the front of my mat and camel toe was still stretching it out in downward dog. OMG full moon rising, the fabric of the pants were stretched to the max, you could see her butt through the fabric and also her hot pink thong. Uggg… I tried to avoid it and find a different place to look but like the camel toe, you can’t stop looking. From behind you can stare for longer because she won’t notice. I almost started giggling, the more she moved, the more I followed the thong, wondering if the pants would give. I swear you could almost hear the fabric creak under the strain.
Then during another downward dog, the instructor who was wandering the room stopped mid-sentence…. lost his train of thought and said “Umm, ummm…..” and I glanced up. He too was mesmerized by the full moon and now couldn’t find his train of thought. He NEVER loses his train of thought. His look seemed to say “Jesus those pants are gonna blow”….. This is when I started to giggle, tried to suppress it and instead half hiccupped and started coughing. All eyes now on me, “Hey everyone!”
The good thing is it snapped the instructor out of his trance and got him back on track but he didn’t wander around behind full moon again. He kept sneaking glances and I thought “Yep now he’s noticed camel toe”.
She has come again, same pants, same top but now I don’t sit near her. I just hope that one day she can save up enough money to buy her own yoga pants and give those back to her daughter and now I also want to know what the rest of her wardrobe looks like.
