After packing on the steroid 15 (pounds that is!) most of the clothing in my closet no longer fit, and I refused to give in to the lure of "life in sweatpants."
I discovered Prana yoga pants prior to my abdominal surgery. They are easy to move in and they have strategically placed seams for figure shaping (gotta love that!) They come with or without a drawstring and they wash beautifully. While I prefer black, several colors are available at www.prana.com.
