Reversible, 100% opaque, high-stretch and high-waisted, the Urdhvas are the ultimate summer leggings. A regular fixture in Sweaty Betty Founder and Creative Director Tamara’s wardrobe, here she gives you 5 reasons to try them for yourself.

5 reasopns to wear the urdhva

I love a pair of reversible leggings, it’s like doubling your workout wardrobe. The Urdhvas offer two looks in one legging and I often wear the bright tropical print for a class before reversing to classic black for meetings.  
No VPL allowed

Whether worn black or printed side out, the Urhdvas stay fully opaque through every movement. You never want to be the person at the front of the class with your underwear showing, so the opaque fabric has been designed to be completely downward dog safe for a distraction-free workout.
They never fall down

There is nothing more annoying than when you have to constantly pull your leggings up during a workout. With this in mind, we designed the Urdhvas to sit high on the waist with an adjustable drawcord so they don’t fall down however much you jump around. The high waist is not only great during exercise, it flattens the tummy to create a super flattering silhouette.  
All-day comfort

I cannot even begin to emphasise how soft and comfortable these leggings are on your skin, to the extent that I never want to take mine off. The fabric is so stretchy and breathable that you stay comfortable all day.
Instant style guaranteed

With mesh panels, a vibrant print and contrasting cuffs, the Urdhvas are more than your regular yoga pants. Whether in the studio or at meetings I love to style mine up, either with a top tucked in to lengthen my legs (I love the Indaba Yoga Tee) or with a longline Utthita Yoga Cami to emphasise my waist. You also can't beat the Bakasana Vest with its matching tropical bra for a cool studio look. Post workout, I’ll throw on the Selva Luxe Coat or Baseline Tennis Sweat and my trusty Acne trainers for casual style.
