Rated 2 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Beautiful colour - but feels cheap
I bought an Anusara vest because the Athlete vest, I was told, was being discontinued. I've bought Athlete for years and I always come back to it - it is great for yoga (I'm an instructor), running, gym and general wear.
The Anusara vest I chose, in a deep teal green, is a lovely colour and I like the design with the cross straps at the back.
However I do not like the fabric at all. Presumably because of its seam-free construction, it is very light, so it rides up, instead of staying on my hips. Because it is very delicate it is prone to snagging - not ideal in an item that sees a lot of action. The fabric feels cheap to the touch and it's very hot. Also, it clings to lumps and bumps, so not the most flattering. Love the shape, Sweaty Betty team, but please change the fabric to something some substantial, long-lasting and slightly heavier weight.

great for yoga and doesn't ride up. Bought it specifically for yoga so haven't run in it and don't intend to.
The fit isn't super tight due to the fabric used so I went a size smaller than I normally would and it's perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Isabellag My thoughts on the anusara
This vest is fantastic, the cross over back is beautiful and very flattering. The fabric is so soft and lightweight, which is great for bikram yoga.

This vest is great, so flattering and practical. I wear it all the time, both for yoga and socialising. The grey is very elegant and matches everything.

This vest was OK. It didn't quite match the leggings in the same colour that I bought it to match. What I would really like is a long sleeveless vest with broad straps to cover my bra straps. Sweaty betty used to do a great style like that but now they all have the crossover or thin straps that give too much exposure for my liking and look a bit messy. I desperately need some vests for practice but one that gives a neat look and is long enough to prevent gaps when in postures, preferably with a bit of stretch as well. The same material as the Glisten top would be nice.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jencatz Not quite as nice as previous anusara top
I bought the lave red and although a nice colour the pattern does not show up in the same way as it does on an anusara top I bought a few months ago in a different colour. I preferred the previous version but will keep this one as there' s nothing really not to like. I am a size 8 and got a small which is perfect across the chest and a bit loose everywhere else. Comes up bigger than some other sweaty betty tops and I would have got XS if I wanted a tighter fit.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by CamnesYogi Useful yoga vest
Simple, nicely shaped yoga vest, very slightly looser than I expected but great over the top of a SB bra top. Fabric seemed lighter than I expected but did not disappoint and is comfortable for a yoga session.
