Sweaty Betty

Sweaty Betty stays at the forefront of fabric technology, bringing you the most innovative pieces with proven performance-enhancing capabilities and fashion-forward aesthetics.




Seamless garments are engineered by weaving the fibres into one circular piece of fabric, which is then constructed into a slim-fitting, lightweight garment.

This form of garment engineering means there are no uncomfortable seams to cause chafing or irritation to sensitive skin.

Seamlessly-engineered garments feel softer and smoother to the touch.




Naturally thermal, the Merino fabric regulates body temperature to ensure the wearer stays warm without overheating.

Merino fabric's capability in wicking sweat from the body makes it perfect for base layers.


Biodegradable and sustainable, this natural fabric used by Sweaty Betty is sourced from farms with high animal welfare standards, certified by New Merino.

Natural and antimicrobial, this fabric is a superfine wool sourced from Merino sheep. Odour resistance means fewer washes and a longer-lasting garment.


Bonded technology involves gluing the seams together (rather than stitching) to prevent chafing and improve comfort.



Bonded in hot temperatures, the adhesive melts into a strong, durable seam that will stay secure during even the toughest of training.

Bonding the seams using this technology means the fabric becomes fully reversible.

Grown without pesticides, this all-natural, biodegradable and sustainable fabric is the ideal choice for yogis.



Perfect for flowing through asanas and inversions, the fine fibres make it soft and smooth to the touch.

Crafted with micro gaps in the fibres to make it highly breathable, bamboo absorbs moisture quickly to keep the wearer dry and comfortable.






The open structure of the fabric means it is quick-drying; ideal during high intensity training or warmer weather, and particularly post-swim.


Sweaty Betty uses premium Sensitive fabrics patented by the world-renowned Eurojersey factory in Italy.

The manmade fibres are smooth and matte, providing a delicate fit against the skin.

Allowing air to circulate between the fibres, the wrap-knit construction wicks moisture from the body for extra comfort.

Highly technical Sensitive® SCULPT fabric is specially designed to streamline and accentuate the silhouette for an ultra-feminine shape.

The original Sensitive® Fabrics features a high Lycra content for unique elasticity allowing a greater freedom of movement during all workouts.




The integrated silver ions that make up the innovative Q-Skin fibres prevent antibacterial build-up, allowing skin to breathe and remain odour-free.

To ensure the product stays fresher for longer, the silver ions are designed to release gradually, preserving the unique features of the fibres over a longer period of time.

The silver ions are embedded into the microfibre during the knitting process, making the fabric hypoallergenic.

reduces lactic acid build up

reduces muscle fatigue

The Compression-made fabric pulls muscles tighter together during exercise to keep the lactic acid at bay, enabling the runner to stride faster and further.

Each time a runner's foot hits the floor, the muscles vibrate from the impact – an effect known as oscillation. As a major contributor to muscle fatigue, garments crafted using Compression technology reduce the oscillation effect to improve overall performance.

improves circulation

As the name suggests, garments crafted using Compression technology compress the muscles during workouts to increase blood flow and circulation. By feeding more oxygen to the muscles, performance is enhanced.

improves recovery time

The Compression-made fabric stops the muscles from swelling and aids circulation to help the muscles repair more quickly.


The natural fibres of the cotton make it an ideal choice for yogis.


All Sweaty Betty cottons benefit from high-stretch capabilities and a brushed back design that feels soft against the skin.


The Sweaty Betty design and buying teams created an exclusive Polyamide/Elastane cotton composition used across the Dynamic, Vinyasa and Uttanasa trousers. In addition to a soft touch and opaque design, it is extra sweat-wicking and ideal for the faster flows of Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga.

Sweaty Betty designers have found a perfect balance in comfort and performance with an interlock jersey technique, where two threads are layered one on top of the other. This makes the garment 100% opaque for full coverage during yoga inversions. The interlock process is done using lightweight fabrics so there is no sacrifice to your freedom of movement.

While providing generous insulation for cool days, the heat-regulating and moisture-wicking properties of Polartech® also promote breathability and keep you feeling dry and comfortable. Multiple layers of fabric are designed to transfer moisture from your skin, ensuring rapid evaporation so you don't overheat.

Polartec® Stretch Pro has a low-friction finish so it feels soft against your skin. It also layers well with other garments, minimising wear and tear during frequent training.

A new fabric this year, Polartec® Stretch Pro is used in the Polartec® Hoody and Polartec® Sweat Pant and was an incredible discovery for Sweaty Betty. Perfect for the Outdoor Training range, Polartech® offers four-way stretch to enhance freedom of movement during exercise and boost resilience against the elements.
