PRANA REVERE LONG SLEEVE TEE £50; yogamatters.com
This is a lightweight, moisture-wicking top in a relaxed cut. It features long sleeves with thumbholes, a wide crew neck, slightly shaped waist, flatlock stitching and curved, shirttail hems. It’s a good cover-up or top layer if you like a looser, tummy-covering top, however, because it’s not tight over the hips it can fall up a little if you bend forwards or come into an inverted pose. (This is easily remedied by wearing a tighter-fitting vest underneath, or knotting the bottom of the top on one hip, which looks cute.) The recycled polyester fabric is thin but comfortable, has silver-ion, anti-odour properties and is Fair Trade Factory certified. It’s also available in a pale blue and black.

HYGGE CARDI £85; ilufitwear.com
At first glance, this two-tone hooded wraparound looks like a dressing gown. But once worn, it’ll become the grab-and- go essential you wonder how you lived without. It’s made from luxurious, heavy jersey with tighter, ribbed sleeves and a button to keep it fastened at the neck should you wish. It only comes in one size but is generous and snuggly, and would work on most shapes. While you might not wear this for a whole class, it’s useful to have on at the beginning (especially if your class, like mine, is in a chilly church hall) and for savasana. Best of all, it’s perfect to throw over your workout gear for the shops or school run.
BE GRACE BATWING £59; asquithlondon.com
Say hello to your new favourite top. As soon as I tried this on, I vowed to order one in every colour (it also comes in four plain shades as well as this cool Breton stripe). It’s a super-flattering design, perfect for practice, layering or your everyday wardrobe. Cut long in the body and fitting snugly around the hips, it stays in place as you move from one asana to the next. The design also allows the upper body to drape beautifully over the waist and hips, disguising wobbly bits while giving shape. The batwing style is forgiving for the upper arms and allows freedom of movement in any position. If you’re not a fan of shiny technical fabrics you’ll love the material, too – a soft and silky bamboo/elastane mix, sustainable and chemical free, that washes well and keeps its shape. It’s cool and breathable, with more form-flattering function than your average fitness tee.
REST LESS PULLOVER £75; lululemon.co.uk
This top may be designed for running but the four-way stretch and seamless construction make it comfortable and functional for yoga, too. The outside has a ribbed, cable-knit pattern but the inside is a brushed fabric that feels soft against skin, while the long-length arms and thumb holes keep your hands nice and cosy. This is a close-fitting, sporty top with a high crew neck that finishes on the hips. It’s not as clingy as it looks, and it does feel flattering on your tummy, but it’s worth sizing up if you prefer a looser fit or you want to layer it over a vest. It does ride up a little under the arms and over the hips as you move, though.
