5- Top 4 Rising Stars Products in the Yoga Category
Let’s now have a look at Rising Stars - products that most recently cracked the top 100 in the Yoga category on Amazon U.S.
Who says Yoga, says Yoga pants and comfortable leggings. So obviously, our first rising star product is a high waisted women leggings from the brand Campsnail. First seen on Amazon on October 2nd, this product managed to generate over 800 global reviews and a 4.4 out of 5 star ratings, thanks to its fabric’s quality that is soft, comfortable, and available at all sizes. These leggings are priced at $27, a reasonably competitive selling price compared to the other pants on the list.
2- Colorfulkoala Women's High Waisted Leggings
Another high waisted leggings on the list! This time it’s from the brand ColorfulKoala, which is known for its convenient and high-quality gear options at affordable prices. These leggings or full-length yoga pants are also priced at $27, and with a total of 6 days in the best seller position, they managed to gather over 300 positive customer reviews and a 4.7 out of 5 star rating. You might be wondering by now what’s the difference between Yoga pants and Leggings, or whether if there’s any difference between these two items since most brands on Amazon include both in their product listings, especially the Product Title. So the main difference is the material. Yoga pants are made of opaque, thick with some stretch fabric, whereas leggings are made of thin, stretchy fabric. However, if they are both comfortable & high-waisted pants (which is the case most of the time), they can be used for yoga or any other activity requiring movements, like sports, or no movement at all!
Placing 3rd on the top 4 rising star products list is Lamibaby’s high waisted yoga pants with pockets. First seen on Amazon on September 28th, the product now has 4,7 out of 5 star rating and over 3020 reviews. The very competitive price can explain the product’s rising popularity on Amazon U.S. it’s set at $13 and has a pretty good quality according to the customers’ reviews.
The 4th best performing product that has recently appeared on the Amazon marketplace is Ohlyah’s women’s seamless wire-free bra with removable pads. It first appeared on September 27, spent three days in a row in the best sellers, and earned itself a well deserved 4.2 out of 5 star ratings.
In our study, we looked at the most expensive products, the cheapest ones, the products with the highest ratings, and the ones that have received fewer reviews but still made it to the top 30.
