A major culprit for camel toes is the type of fabric. Very thin and extremely stretchable fabrics lead to camel toes. Thus, leggings and yoga pants are often made of spandex, keeping in mind the need for exercise and yoga, which requires a lot of stretching. They are also very comfortable. No wonder that a lot of women like to hang around in their yoga pants. If you too prefer to do so but worry about camel toes, then look for yoga pants that have a thick lining around the private area. This prevents the creasing and forming of camel toes.
