While most activewear is designed with comfort in mind, yoga sweatpants probably win the award for the most comfortable piece of clothing. You won't want to wear these just for workouts -- you might catch yourself lounging in them more often than heading out for a run. These loose yoga pants have a slightly looser fit than leggings making them the perfect item of clothing to pull on for a slow jog around your neighborhood. With an adjustable waistband and a relaxed fit, you know that you'll be the epitome of comfortable wherever you are. Some fits may have loose waists or flared calves, even. Drawstrings will give you the maneuverability to adjust, and the fit you choose really comes down to your own preference. At the end of the day, just aim to wear something you feel confident and comfortable in.

Most joggers are made with soft enough material that you'll want to stay in them long after your workout is over. And thanks to their transitional style, you'll be able to -- they are perfect for running errands or meeting friends.
Sweatpants are closer to being strictly workout bottoms. (Unfortunately, you probably won't be able to get away with wearing them around unless you're still in college.) They are often made of a blend of soft cotton and are perfect for throwing over your leggings or shorts to stay warm. Worn on their own, they can help you work up...well, work up a sweat. They're also perfect for when you just need something that you can lounge around the house in.
On the question of stretch, try to look for yoga pants made from either two-way or four-way stretch fabrics. Two-way stretch will stretch in one direction only. Four-way stretches stretch horizontally and vertically, giving them more room to fill out. For a better range of movement, the four-way stretch has a lot to offer. Finally, opt for a comfortable fit, not too tight and not too loose.
Joggers and sweatpants are a staple of the entire workout industry, not just for yoga. They are primarily designed to keep you warm when in cool temperatures while wicking away moisture from sweat. This warmth isn't only for your skin. Trapping in heat helps to maintain muscle warmth, which is even more important than comfort. It can prevent cramps, muscle tearing, and other injuries.
