There’s a practical reason why yogis, including YJ co-founder Jean Girardot (pictured on our very first cover above), have worn bodysuits for decades: Form-fitting one-pieces stay put during poses. Not to mention they’re comfy and flattering, too. We love this edgy new take on the classic black bodysuit, especially when paired with leg warmers and a mesh bra.
