I’ve always been interested in working out & staying healthy, however during lockdown it’s been even more important to me, as not only am I determined to come out a little fitter but exercise is also really helping with my mental health too.
So when Sweaty Betty contacted me and asked me if I’d like to choose a few pieces to workout in and to chillout at home in too, I was delighted & jumped at the chance!
I’ve posted most of these looks over on my Instagram main grid & stories however I though it could be helpful to document the looks all here in one place with useful information on sizing & links to shop each look.
So let’s start with some of the amazing workout pieces I’ve been loving….
So I don’t have massive bosoms being a modest C Cup, however we all want a little support whilst working out so the Stamina Sports Bra is perfect for me as it has just the right amount of support and a little longer than some sports bras, so I still feel confident in wearing it alone as a crop top and it works well with a top layered over it. I chose the Tulip Red as it’s bright & I knew would work well with the other Sweaty Betty pieces I chose (plus whats in my wardrobe) and it also matches the pop of red details on my trainers 😉
I’m a 34 C and a size 10 on my top and I’m wearing the Medium.
If you follow me on my Instagram, you will know that I am a little partial to a bit of leopard print! So these Zero Gravity High Waisted Running Leggings in Olive Leopard Print were the first to add into my basket! These high waisted, bum-sculpting superhero leggings create the perfect fit and fabric to ensure they flatter where it matters and the sweat-wicking with compression technology material are perfect for runners. I have loved wearing them out on my runs that I’ve been doing since lockdown…they are definitely helping me get to my 30 minute 5K goal! These have also made it into my lockdown chill out wardrobe and I can see me wearing these with a white vest & denim shirt & biker boots once we are finally set free again!
I’m a size 10-12 on my bottom half and I was advised by the lovely Sweaty Betty team to go for the Small in the leggings, which I was a little uneasy about at first …however they were right, these fit perfectly and really flatter and hold you in, all in the right places. I also personally prefer the full length as I think these are more flattering & lengthening on my legs however all of the leggings also come in 7/8s lengths too.
I wanted to update & replace my old black running leggings and I was recommended to try these Power Workout Leggings and I’m so super glad I did…they are absolutely fantastic!
Similar to the Gravity Leggings above, the Power Workout Leggings have a side pocket AND back zip pocket to store all of your essentials which in my case is my iPhone & my cash card! Both leggings also pass the bending over test with flying colours ……as there is nothing worse than being in a class and realising your leggings are see through and everyone can see your knickers! 😉
Again I am wearing the small in the Power Workout Leggings & a full length leg….. I am between a size 10 & 12 on my bottom half.
If working out in your bra isn’t for you and TBH it’s not something I’m 100% comfortable with usually, so this Compound Workout Vest is a perfect layering relaxed fit piece, with a drop back to not only cover your tummy but also your bottom whilst out running in public or when we’re finally able to get back to classes.
I am wearing the Medium in the Compound Work out Vest and I am a standard 10 on top.
So just because we’re in lockdown doesn’t mean that we can’t be comfy & stylish, so I chose these gorgeous beetle blue Garudasana Yoga Pants which are so soft & cosy….and TBH I’ve not actually used for yoga once….but I know I will. These will also be great for when we are finally allowed to travel again, offering the perfect airport chic look.
I am wearing the medium in the Garudasana Yoga Pants
My trainers are from Shoe The Bear & currently in the sale here
These pants look great with the Moto Mesh Zip Through Hoody also in Beetle Blue. This colour is a great alternative to black which when worn next to my face, I can find a little draining which nobody needs right now!
I chose a Medium in the Moto Mesh Zip Through Hoody as I prefer the more oversized look. (Again I’m a size 10 on my top)
https://bit.ly/2W8NMbt Namaste Seamless Bamboo Yoga Vest
I paired this look with the Namaste Seamless Bamboo Yoga Vest, which is possibly one of my favorite pieces from the whole collection. This can be worn for yoga, worn with a simple pair of levis or even dressed up as I’ve shown below. This top has a built in bra with removable pads, and the most beautiful delicate T back detail….
I’m in a Medium again here & I am a size 10 (34C bust)
For a more dressy casual look I choose the Cargo 7/8 Trousers & paired with the Namaste Yoga Vest. As you can see, just by changing the shoes from chunky trainers, to leopard print flat sandals or gold wedges you can really transform a look very quickly.
I’m in a size M in the Cargo 7/8 Trousers (usually a 10-12)
I love a fresh white vest in the summer with a tan & this Athlete Seamless Workout Vest works equally well with a pair of workout leggings as it does with my cut off Levis …
Again I’m in the Medium and am standard size 10 on top
My tan & zebra sandals are from Shoe The Bear and are currently in the sale.
….And then because it still gets chilly in the evenings I teamed this look with the Sanctuary Luxe Zip Through Hoody in this gorgeous Storm Blue colour, which I feel gives a little surf chic vibe and goes perfectly with all the other pieces I chose too.
Again I chose the Medium for a more over sized relaxed vibe (I’m at 10)
Finally I left the best till last with this Beautify Jumpsuit in this incredible mosaic blue colour….now this is one hell of a jumpsuit & I love it!
I’m in the size Medium and I’m wearing a bikini top underneath however any of the Stamina Sports bra would equally look fab under or just a strapless bra is another option.
