Yoga is meant to be relaxing. A connected flow of movements that works the body at the same time as relieving tension and stress. But to achieve full body Zen, we should dress for the occasion. Clothes that restrict your movement or distract you from your breathing will get in the way of your practice.
Luckily, Sweaty Betty have been creating supportive, sculpting and beautiful yoga pieces that will help you hit the mat with confidence for over 20 years.
So, take a deep breath (2,3,4). Exhale. And let’s start from the bottom.
Start With the Basics
Balance is a big part of yoga. And to nail scorpion pose, you’ll need gear that’ll help keep you steady. The high-compression Super Soft Leggings boost circulation, sculpt your bum and have a beautiful high waist that helps you stay in place. Or for a standout studio look, give the Motion Jacquard Leggings (and matching soft-touch Crop Vest) a whirl.

The Balance Seamless Bra is fashionable yet functional, with its chic square neckline and compressive technology. And if you haven’t seen Sweaty Betty’s new Solstice Strappy Back Bra yet, it’s time you became acquainted. Cross-back detailing and sweat-wicking fabric makes this our hot yoga go-to. Prefer no pads? They’re easy to take out of this soft, seamless bra.
Cover Your Core
Trying a vinyasa class? Make sure you’re wearing the breathable Easy Peazy Pima Vest. This soft touch, relaxed top leaves your arms free so you can move with ease. And if there’s a chill in the room, try the lightweight Free Flow Open Back Top. Just tie the adjustable hem tight on the open back before forward fold to keep it from riding up as you stretch. Or feel free to loosen it up when in butterfly pose.
Now that we’ve got the basics covered, take your practice to the next level with these essential accessories. Crafted from modal Lenzing™ yarn, Sweaty Betty’s soft Mindful Headband keeps flyways out of your face during inversion poses. And the breathable Pilates socks keep sweaty feet from slipping when transitioning between moves. Need a strap for your mat? We’ve got that covered too.
After you say namaste, throw on an After Class Relaxed Hoody. The deep V-neck is perfect for pre and post practice comfort – and you can even keep a snack bar and mobile in the kangaroo pocket. Then swap your bottoms for a smart, yet relaxed Gary Yoga Pants to keep you extra comfy.
