Is Yoga Fashion Only for Teeny Yoginis?

When it comes to the fashion industry as a whole, it's no secret that designers tailor their clothing to thinner, smaller bodies. Considering the inclusive nature of yoga, however, you might expect things are different in the yoga fashion industry....

When it comes to the fashion industry as a whole, it's no secret that designers tailor their clothing to thinner, smaller bodies. Considering the inclusive nature of yoga, however, you might expect things are different in the yoga fashion industry. But a recent article in the Vancouver Sun suggests that yoga-inspired clothing company Lululemon isn't doing all that it can to keep its stores stocked with larger-sized clothing (12 and 14? Isn't that average for American women?). Lululemon does carry sizes 12 and 14 in their core items, a spokesperson told The Sun.

Regardless of Lululemon's practices, the article brings up some important questions: Have plus-size yogia students been excluded from the trendy world of yoga fashion? If you're an average- or plus-size yogini with curves, do you have a hard time finding comfortable, stylish yoga clothes?

Which companies do you think do the best job of creating clothes for all different shapes and sizes?
