Default yoga pants?

I am starting an exercise class in January and have been debating what to wear. I like the idea of yoga pants but have no idea what size. Can anyone recommend a store where I can try on large size yoga pants? Size 18 regular pants seem to fit me now. Do the sizes of yoga pants work the same way?

Thanks!

Thanks Tanee, Walmart is familiar territory but I never thought of it for yoga pants. The idea of me even considering yoga pants is kind of surreal!

Old Navy--if you're an 18, you should be able to fit into an XL, but may need an XXL--I've had to get both, it depends on the pants.

I love this Land's End sports pants. they're not super cheap, but they last, are comfortable, and look good

if you're confused about size, you can use the body measurement charts.

The Penneys here usually has a good selection of yoga pants (most of the time they're on sale, too)

Sports Authority has a good selection to try on, and then you can often find them cheaper online somewhere else once you establish a size. WalMart & Target are good as well.

I love love yoga-type pants! I am currently in a size 16, sometimes an 18. I have some from The Gap, size XL, Lululemon in a size 14 - which are my fav, but definitely an investment piece! I got some from Lucy in an XL, Aritzia in a size XL as well. I think as a size 18 you'd be pretty close to any XL, so get out and try some on!

My best guess would be that you would wear a 1X in a plus size or an XL/XXL in a misses size. I got wonderful yoga pants from Modell's Sporting Goods store, love them.

Seconding the Gap love. I'm currently wearing a pair of regular XL yoga pants from there, and they are comfy and look great. I practically live in them around the house. I just bought a pair of size 14 jeans from the Gap (that's in US sizes; they claim to be UK 18/US 14) but I've had these particular pants since at least 20 pounds ago, when I was much closer to a US 18 in size, and they're very forgiving.

OMG - I LOVE LOVE LOVE (standing on one foot with the other in the air) LOVE lululemon yoga pants! I just had a total NSV this last weekend with lululemon pants. I have been drooling over them for well over a year but they didn't make a size big enough for my backside. Well.....taaa daaa.....I tried a pair on this weekend and they FIT! Oh, color me happy. Yeah.....a total investment purchase but I absolutely love them. I know, I know....how can a person LOVE a pair of pants? I'm not real sure but I really do love 'em!

I've also found Nike is a good brand. K-Mart seems to have a pretty good selection of Bond brand but they may not be available in the USA - I'm not sure.
