A few months ago I posted about Sweaty Betty, a London-based activewear brand that's taking over the fitness fashion scene. If you recall, after a quick buzz through the store, I wasn't impressed with the leggings. Scratch that. I really liked the design - they really ticked all my boxes: wide waistband, triangle gusset, and funky design options. But the fit was meh, and given the price tag, I just wasn't into it.
Fast forward to last week and I came home to a little package from Sweaty Betty (woop! Blogging perk!) that included these leggings. I was skeptical, but as I took them out of the box and felt the fabric (quite similar to Lululemon's Luon) I thought, Ok, these might actually work for me.
Not only did they work, but I really, really like them.
Sweaty Betty Leggings Details
Contrast stitching makes the muted black more interesting, and the mesh paneling at the ankle is an unexpected twist.
There's a hip paneling on either side, as well, which I find really flattering.
The wide waistband lies flat and doesn't dig in, and if you're not into wide waistbands you can fold it in half like I did above.
Also? Two pants in one! Woop! These leggings are reversible. Sweaty Betty also advertises that they are 100% opaque, which I can attest to. I've worn them to a few workouts (running and lifting weights) and practiced yoga in them as well and am happy to report that they stay in place for all activities, and are sweat wicking.
I looked up the price, and, woah, they're on the pricey side at $155. I used to pay around $100 for my Lululemon pairs, back in the day when they were exceptional quality, so I might keep my eyes peeled for a sale because I do think they're excellent pants that will last.
Let's talk Have you heard of Sweaty Betty? Would you try them? What's your favorite pair of yoga pants that you own?
