Rated 5 out of 5Â by COPatron Best Base Layer I Have
I live in Colorado and ski regularly in varying conditions. This year I needed some new clothes and decided to try out something other than my usual Patagonia mostly because I wanted to look "cute"...
Yes it's cute, but it's also significantly warmer than I expected.
Paired with an insulated Arcteryx jacket and shell, I was warm down to 10 degrees. Lower than that or with poor conditions (i.e. if it is actively snowing) I suggest adding a fleece and/or a neck gator (the turtleneck is great for keeping my neck warm while skiing on a nice day, but you really don't want to be breathing on the fabric that goes around your neck, it gets wet).
So yes, you will look cute for apres ski, but you'll also be warm while you're on the mountain, and that's really the selling point in my opinion.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Absolutely love this but does not wear well!
Got this for Christmas with matching head warmer and scarf. Absolutely love the design and feel but so disappointed with the wear of it. it has been washed once and worn a handful of times on the slopes. I have suffered the same issues as the other reviewers where it has gone all fluffy. I am gutted as love the design but would like someone to contact me re a refund :(

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Lapoeta Great design, poor construction :(
What a let down. Absolutely loved the pattern, colours and high neck design but the top has been worn TWICE and the sleeves are already very fluffy - like the threads are emerging from the inside to the outside. I also bought the matching leggings which have been worn ONCE but are already showing signs of the same effect. I have two other sets of Sweaty Betty ski tops and leggings which have been worn lots of times and they have not suffered the same fate, although all the sets have so many threads on the inside that it easy to catch them when putting them on. Maybe the garments could be lined? I would like to return these latest ones please.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MollyB Very cosy and flattering, however slightly fluffy at the seams
Fab design and very flattering on my body shape, as it brings you in at the waist and has a pattern going down the arms and legs, which I find very slimming.
I have received many complements on this outfit from both friends and strangers on the street. Although I haven't worn it on the slopes yet, it is a perfect outfit to wear whilst jogging outside in colder months, as well as wearing it around the house. I even walked the dog wearing just this and a knitted jumper over the top and I was nice and cozy in -4 degree weather.
I am a size 8/ 10 with 32F boobs, so I did think I would find it too tight around the chest area. However, I brought an XS and didn't have a problem. The leggings were a fair bit longer than my 28" legs, but I just folded them up and wore them with wooly socks, so it didn't make that much difference.
The only issue I've had with both the leggings and top is that it has gone fluffy along the seams between each colour. The quality of the products still seems pretty good as you can stretch the seams and still see no holes or gaps, it just has lots of little fibres sticking out. Which isn't much of a problem, it's just slightly disappointing considering the set costs a total of Â£120 (Â£98 with student discount) and I have only worn it 4/5 times and washed it once, so I would have expected a better quality product and it does make me question how long it will last considering the wear on the product already.

The top and bottom are so fashionable and soft! I can't wait to wear these on the slopes and with boots and a down skirt on top for drinks after! I bought a similar Sweaty Betty base layer top and bottoms last year and these run slightly larger with a bit more stretch. I would say they run true to size. For reference, I bought a large in both the top and bottom and am a muscular US size 12- I often run into tops being too tight in the shoulders or arms but this fit wonderfully.

This early Christmas present from a friend is so disappointing. Lovely cut and design but the sleeves on the top have gone all fluffy and bobbled. Will be ok if you want to wear it underneath another top to keep warm but not if you want to wear on its own :-(

Rated 2 out of 5Â by AK41 Mountain Top Seamless Ski Base Layer
When I received the products (ordered the top and the matching leggings), I was very impressed. The pattern looks fantastic. The material is very soft and form fitting, and as it is very stretchy, it fits to your form perfectly. The pattern is very good at hiding any lumps and bumps. The sizing is a little bit on the larger size (or maybe because the material stretches very easily), so you can probably get away with going a size down. I have just returned from a week of skiing, and it was the perfect base layer on 'milder' days (up to about -10 degrees, then I switched to merino wool). It felt very comfortable under my ski trousers/jacket, like a second skin, allowing for easy movement whilst keeping me warm. The high-neck kept my neck covered and allowed me not to wear a scarf on warmer days. However, regrettably I found that this product is not very durable, which is essential for a base layer for skiing. When I took off my ski jacket/trousers after first wear, I noticed that the base layer was 'furring up', mainly along the long pattern lines where the different colours meet in high movement areas, such as the arms, shoulders and the side of the legs. There are no zips/velcro fastenings on the inside of my ski jacket/trousers, so it appears that the friction between the nylon lining of my ski wear and the base layer is pulling out the fibres from the seamless top/leggings. I was really disappointed when I saw this, as these are very expensive items, and they were an early Christmas present from my other half. Regrettably, I cannot recommend this base layer, as after just one wear it already looked like a product I had for a really long time.

Can't get enough of this seamless outfit. The top is VERY flattering and comfortable. Will be perfect for skiing this winter. I typically do not like high-neck shirts but it works with on this top. My favorite SB employee recommended this outfit to me and didn't think I was going to love it but indeed I do! Thanks as always SB!

Fantastic design - really flattering & stunning - just wow & worth every penny. Super stretchy fabric so reackon you can size down in confidence (if busty) I ordered a medium to start with as 12-14 in tops and exchanged for a small as much better fit. Extra care needed when putting on/taking off as think could snag easily - so taking one star off for that otherwise just perfect.
