Hellllooo cute new workout wear! Good news for us Americans is two fold. Sweaty Betty is great quality clothing that is cute and offers more fashion diversity than a certain Vancouver based company that makes our hard earned derrières look more fabulous. Sweaty Betty offers that same flattering look and is now available for mail order in the US. You know what comes on the heels of mail order right? A possibility of a brick and mortar store. Their selection is super cute and really functional. Their styles can even take you into snow country. Currently they offer a beautiful fleece cape that is weatherproof and running tights that have micro fleece on the inside while maintaining wicking technology! I look forward to wearing my new 'fit at the gym. If you're a fitness nut I'd suggest you drop in for a look around, if you're an out of towner like me be sure to set aside some money to spend on the cute, new, functional clothes you're about to buy.
But expect to pay for what you get. Which is a lot. But worth it.
I was at the SB last summer the day that it opened in NYC. It was super cool and I bought all kinds of stuff. I was excited to get into a SB on this trip. Like my Boots review below...maybe there is a bigger, better SB? This one was ho-hum. Nothing really cute. Super basic.
This is a great new (to me) brand. I ran across it on a recent trip to the UK and am looking forward to it coming to the states. It is very much like lululemon, which is my current favorite store for this type of clothing.
A friend of mine is a serious gym junkie, if she misses one day she feels guilty and makes up for it the next time she hits the treadmill. My gym activity has never got past the induction session with the fitness instructor. It seemed a good idea at the time but I soon realised that I could find a million more intersting things to do than hit teh gym like shopping, drinking, eating- anything really.
When my friend suggested a shopping trip I was definately up for it but when she mentioned poppping into Sweaty Betty I though 'Oh No'. Once I'd got over the name and suppressed my school girl giggles I was actually pleasantly surprised. A few of the adidas by Stella McCartney bits caught my eye especially the parka but I couldn't justify the £180 price tag!
Sweaty Betty is a cool shop for girls that like to work up a sweat but I'll stick to my kind of exercise- running after my son- and I don't need specialist clothing.
Most stylish (reasonable) gym clothes i have seen - i always need motivating to follow my super athletic husband to the gym and maybe this is it. the staff are friendly and they sell unique items that the half dozen nearby sports stores don't. i believe they also host in-store yoga sessions but unfortunately they start too early in the evening for me to make it in time. hopefully the new clothes will get me running in the park....
Working out has never been so glamourous! When you shop at Sweaty Betty, it's OK to break a sweat! This fitness oriented apparel store will make sure look great during your workout! The thing I like most about this store is that each piece of clothing has some sort of personality. The bright colours in the store caught my attention along with the feminine touch on the apparel. After all, you can look fit and get fit too!
Sweaty Betty sell a large range of women's sportswear-strictly for the gym.No mountaineering boots here but plenty of areobic trainers.
The look focuses on glamour at the gym, with lycra , black and shocking pink dominant.The range is designed so that you can dress yourself in it from top to toe-they even sell sweat wristbands.
Good middle to upper middle-market fashion,it is really only wearable by the thin and body conscious, with crop tops and leotards galore.
Good quality with a high cotton content.
I find any other sport label other than the same old big multinational brands, that I am not going to name here, very refreshing. My first impression of Sweaty Betty was that it is very girlie, as the shop is completely pink! But also that the clothes are allright and not too expensive. Well it depends what you are after but a hoodie around £30 was not too much to ask? I like the fact that these short of perky and fun shops makes the gym life so much more fun. You don't need no designer wear for sweating but still using some imagination is not forbidden!
