The "Align" collection uses Nulu fabric, one of the fabrics from the Naked Sensation. It is lightweight and buttery soft. The fabric has cottony feel, similar to Luon yet different. Nulu gives next-to-nothing sensation, while Luon doesn't. Nulu dries super fast, which is a great bonus for heated yoga. Another great feature is that it is four-way stretch. It is so stretchy that you will never run into any limitation in asana practice. The only limitation will be your mobility.
The no-dig high waist is almost a must for my yoga pants today. I am spoiled. I don't even want to wear my old leggings that are standard or low waisted style, which used to be my favorite. I want to point out that most of high waisted leggings do not have hidden pockets, but the Align Crop and Pant are two exceptions. There is a stash pocket on the inner waistband, which can be useful for some of you.
