Teeki Brand Tarot Magick Yoga Pants
I Wanted Some Light Colored Yoga Pants
Specifically, I wanted some lighter in pattern color yoga pants and maybe it’s because we’re moving into warmer weather and because I got into a conversation with a friend who loves shopping and picked up some yoga pants. Have you noticed that light colored yoga pants are hard to find off the rack of usual stores? I have.
She: “I picked up some yoga pants.”
Me: “I go to online Kohl’s. I hate shopping.”
She: “You do? I love shopping!”
Me: “Do they have any light colored yoga pants yet?”
She: “No! And why are most yoga pants always so dark?”
Me: “I don’t know. I’m going to find some though.”
It occurred to me in that moment that I wanted yoga pants and in lighter colors, desperately. I didn’t have a single pair of light colored yoga pants or even light patterned yoga pants. But I LOVE wearing light colors – and when I say ‘light colors’ I mean not vibrant, bolds, or shades of grey or blacks – and think that in years past, I’d just give up looking for cute ones in the usual shops. I decided this would be my newest mission.
I have dark patterned yoga pants with deep orange flowers and dark green stems, and abstract patterns of dark green and blues on black, dark pink, purple and white shapes on black, shades from heather to dark grey and, naturally, black and a deep red with black texture marks. But I have no muted, warm, cool, softer, pastel, or light colored yoga pants and I’d been feeling extraordinarily ‘lighter’ lately.
After coming online to Kohl’s and finding nothing, I took to the library of the Google.
Enter Tarot Magick
The soft colors of tribal patterned pastels; the light baby blue that looked textured with even lighter tints of blue among bands of crinkle textured soft pinks, peaches, and lavender. Reminding me of a sunset from a desert canyon, I loved them.
After noticing the price (first) but then reading the description of the eco friendly Teeki, I loved learning that they made their pants from recycled plastic bottles.
Truly loving this desert-sunset Navajo-reminiscent pattern and lighter colors combination, and that they’re made eco-consciously, I still contemplated for a couple days due to the price and also due to not knowing the Teeki brand’s sizing habits. I’m a cusper in Yoga pants, able to be an XS or a S depending upon fabric type, stretch, and brand.
I purchased from Amazon, which had the best price I could find at the time for $74 (USD) + Tax which ended up at a pricey-for-me $80.

With great anticipation after purchasing, I grew excited. I never spend that kind of money on wearables, so this must have been love, and only do it when in high want-need of a thing. I especially dislike having to buy active wear because it’s harder to justify to myself the (mere shopping time and especially higher monetary) cost associated with only a ‘rarely wear’ item. Even if these were one of two pairs of yoga pants I owned, I’d only be wearing them a couple of hours every two days.
So, yes, love. Looking forward to receiving these beautiful pants, wearing these beautiful pants, feeling these beautiful pants, and justifying the lunacy of the price of these beautiful pants, they arrived.
Experiencing Tarot Magick Yoga Pants
They arrived and I put them on immediately to check the fit. Right away, I noticed how soft they felt on my legs. The colors, much more muted than the original photo showed, were lovelier and more subtle in 3D.
Are there a pair of Tarot Magick yoga pants that really do have the colors as shown on the right? I don’t know but other reviewers on Amazon seemed to have noticed to the point of comment as well. But, for me, I can understand how someone would want the colors as pictured only to be disappointed.
One could say, “But monitors, depending upon settings, display colors differently,” and that’s very true and something to be aware of. However, in this case, notice the brown band around my leg and then compare that to the purple band around the advertisement photo. That’s a color difference, not a misinterpretation-due-to-monitor difference.
But, again, I loved the real-world colors better.
The End of the Magic
It pained my heart, my next discoveries.
It pained me so much for a future of what could have been, that I kept them in their bag (ready for ship-back) just to offer my brain a chance to change its mind. Have you ever tried to talk a part of your mind into a decision that you want, while completely of the understanding that you’re being ridiculous? That was me for two days.
- Density: They were see through; No feminine liner.
- Cut: The waist felt like pants were half up / half down.
- Size: Larger than any other too large Small I’d ever experienced.
- Support: Lacking. Lots of stretch. May’ve been solved w/ XS.
My Tarot Magick Amazon Review
My review on Amazon offers more explanation and, in the case of photographic evidence, maybe too much. I don’t want to get into the same detailed explanation, so feel free to have a look.
Conclusion & Ideas
Before purchasing, I should have looked at Teeki’s size chart rather than Amazon’s sizing chart. According to Teeki’s size chart –
“79% Recycled P.E.T. / 21% Spandex * These pants have generous stretch so when in doubt order a size down.”
This makes me happy to know they know of the generous stretch and do suggest a smaller size. But I am now less confident that even an XS would work for me. Based on how much excess I had already gathered on my legs and waist it’s hardly reasonable an XS could fit me snugly. For other would-be consumers of the Hot Pant, let this be a public service advisement to start with a smaller than you might normally be.
Besides the see-through transparency that I can’t move past, I read several reviews commenting on the waist coming down in vinyasa. The waist was excessively bunched on me and already felt half on and off without vinyasa so I’m assuming their pants were fitting them to start with. Please consider a more supportive weave or opaque density at least in the waist, hip and buttock area.
- I truly want to support your eco-conscious practices.
- I lovingly long to feel your light and soft yoga pants.
- I earnestly yearn to wear your beautiful designs.
At the same time, I most sincerely desire the privacy of my butt-crack, my genitalia, and my panty colors.
If you, reader, find or know of light colored yoga pants
Please let me know which brands or patterns you love or if you might think I’d like them. If you’ve purchased a Teeki Hot Pant, which Teeki Hot Pant is NOT see-through? If you’re an XS/S cusper, would you let me know if Teeki’s XS works great for you? This questing for the perfect lighter patterned yoga pant isn’t over.
