This Rap Video Perfectly Explains Why Yoga Pants Are the Best Mom Fashion
Yup, this rap sums up why we moms love yoga pants so, so much.
Moms, if you are wearing yoga pants right now or own yoga pants—or even if you're a yoga pants hater—stop what you're doing and watch this YouTube video called "Yoga Pants Rap" brought to you by mom vlogger Deva Dalporto.
"This is for all you mamas out there rocking your yoga pants!" the rap begins as we are "introduced" to four women wearing the super-comfy black, stretchy pants that make up 90 percent of my wardrobe.
Deva informs us that, much like me and every other mom on planet Earth, she only wants to wear her yoga pants.
I love the moment when a presumed SAHD joins the yoga pants-clad mom squad at the playground. Hey, dad can rock 'em too!
"They're stretchy, and comfy, and so forgiving," the rap continues. "Perfect for this crazy life that I'm living." Uh huh. "My fashion sense died when I had kids," Deva raps. And what mom can't relate to just caring a lot less about your outfit when you know it's going to get spit up on, or spilled on, or be used as a tissue and hand towel all day long?
Besides, yoga pants have a way of flattering a mom's body after baby, as Deva raps, "My muffin top doesn't flop over the rim." And there's this bonus: "They make me look like I just hit the gym."
Deva leaves us with these final words of encouragement: "Keep rocking your yoga pants, mommies!" No matter what the haters say! And I know I will.
Do you rock yoga pants?
