I need to cover my core while I flip my dog - yoga clothes help requested

Did I get your attention :)

I have been going to yoga for about a year and a half.  I've worn the same pants and shirts - old navy stretch pants and a Columbia fitted t shirt.

 

Works fine, but I am wanting a change.  It seems last few times I've been shopping, the clothes are marketed for a size 0 who hasn't yet matured into having body parts to cover.

 

What do you wear to yoga?  I'm looking for something, as the title says, that can cover my top while I'm in downward dog and cover my belly and chest when I'm flipping said dog...

 

I got the Athleta catalog in the mail and love some of their more modest choices but WOW - it's pricey.

Try a tunic length tank from Target layered over a regular tank. They are super inexpensive, last forever, and cover everything. I lived in one when I was pregnant with#3 and wore it postpartum and while pregnant with#4and postpartum again. I had to toss it after about 4 years of heavy wear. I never flashed anything.

I know what it is; it's also called Wild Thing pose, and it's a lot of fun! :o

 

I buy prana Sabin tops because they are fairly long and stay put regardless of what you do, even during handstand. They are getting hard to find since they are out of production, but worth it if you can get them. I found a bunch at Sierra Trading post and got several colours.

 

Also, Beyond Yoga tops are good about staying put. I have the basic Y back top and it doesn't move. It also has a fairly high front so the girls aren't falling out in class. Beyond Yoga also has tops that say "long" in the style, so look for those too.

The beyond yoga tops are cring-worthy expensive, so I buy maybe one per year on sale

They are excellent quality and last a very long time.

 

I am modest too, but have found that fairly body hugging tights and tops actually stay put better and allow greater range of movement than t-shirts or drape-y tops.

What about this ruched tank from Old Navy? http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=91337&vid=1&pid=646340042

 

ETA - I always wore a compression type tank with built in sports bra that I tucked into my yoga pants with another shirt on top. You could even layer tanks, one tucked, one untucked. If at least one of them is a technical fiber that should help keep you cool, too.

This one looks great! It's close enough to the body to stay put but also not too tight! :)

I buy stuff from Athleta.   Yes, they are pricey, but the quality is excellent and the stuff lasts.  They do have a sale section, which is where I try to get my tops from.  They also have some stuff in Tall sizes, which is what I have to buy unless I want to expose my belly. :)  

 

Gap, their BodyFit brand, is also nice.
