Sweaty Betty sale: Where to buy

Sweaty Betty Power Leggings
Sweaty Betty Power Leggings

1. Power 7/8 Gym Leggings

As workout leggings go, they don't come much better

Fabric: Polyamide, Elastane | Machine washable: Yes | Pockets: Yes (side & back)

Squat-proof

Flattering design

Flexible, comfortable fabric

Excellent support

Inclusive size range

Sweat visible before first wash

Sweaty Betty's Power Leggings are among the best workout leggings you can buy. woman&home Health Editor Grace Walsh tested them recentlyand confirmed they are not only comfortable, but pass the squat test with ease. "While the light material was perfect for a yoga session, I also put Sweaty Betty’s 90% squat-proof promise to the test and can confirm these leggings passed with flying colours. The sweatier they get, the more skin feel they offer, delivering extra stretch and comfort as your workout progresses," Grace says.

But there was one downside - sweat visible on the material before the first wash. "I haven't seen this again post-first wash so I'd recommend giving these a spin in the machine to break them in first if you care about sweat patches during your session," Grace advises.

A great all-rounder, the Power Leggings are not only perfect for any kind of workout, but great for normal everyday too. The initial outlay might seem high for a pair of gym leggings, but the quality and longevity you'll get from these bottoms makes them excellent value for money.

2. Athlete Seamless Gym Vest

A gymwear staple

Fabric: Q-SKIN by Fulgar | Machine washable: Yes

Flattering fit

Sweat-wicking fabric keeps you cool

Very comfortable

Good length for extra coverage

There aren't any!

Sweaty Betty's Athlete Seamless Gym vest top is a staple in many a gym-goers wardrobe. I own a couple of these tops, and love how comfortable and supported it makes me feel in the gym. Fitted and flattering, it creates a lovely silhouette, and the sweat-wicking fabric makes it the gym top I favour for more intense workouts.

I'm a big fan of the length, which is longer than many other gym vests I've come across recently. The length reaches my hips nicely, providing extra coverage for my stomach and bum, and it doesn't ride up, so I'm not constantly pulling it back down mid-workout. The quality is evident when wearing, but also in care too. One of the two I own I've had for years, and yet it remains one of my all-time favourite gym wear pieces.

Given the quality and how long they last, the RRP of £40 is well worth it, so when this pops up in the sale with money off, you're getting even more of a bargain.

3. Power Medium Sports Bra

Support for every type of workout

Material : Polyamide, Elastane | Machine washable: Yes

Better options for large busts

It's not surprising Sweaty Betty's Power Medium sports bra is a bestseller – it's one of the best sports bras we've tried. And we've tried a lot. At a very basic level, it does what it is supposed to, supports your chest while exercising, and, with the correct fit, leaves very little room for your boobs to move about. But it somehow does this really comfortably, and looks great while doing so.

The sweat-wicking material keeps you cool, and is quick-drying to help keep any delightful boob sweat at bay. The scoop neck is really flattering and the T-bar back really stands out to elevate the whole piece. For best fit, the Sweaty Betty website recommends sizing down, which, owning one personally, I would agree with. The bra includes padding, but it can be removed depending on your preference. This particular design offers medium-level support, and does so well, but if you need something more, there's plenty of amazing options in our round up of the best sports bras for large busts.

When is the Sweaty Betty sale on?

Sweaty Betty runs a number of sales throughout the year. In 2023, the brand had a new year sale in January, mid-season sales in March and July, Black Friday sales in November and then after Christmas sales at the end of the year.

The best thing about the Sweaty Betty sales is there are really impressive discounts in each, however it, like many other brands, definitely pulls out some special deals in the Black Friday sales, so it's definitely worth checking in November if you've got your eyes on a particular item.

So far, 2024 Sweaty Betty sales are following the same pattern, and we will keep you up-to-date with any that are running, so be sure to bookmark this page for future reference.

When is the Sweaty Betty Black Friday sale?

The Sweaty Betty Black Friday sale is one of the best times to get a big discount on the quality activewear. Last year it had up to 60 percent off across a range of items, including some of its bestsellers. We often find the bestsellers in the sale are on colours and prints that aren't staple to the design (black, for example), however we are seeing more and more the classic items with money off, particularly during Black Friday. So if you're a fan of classic colours and combinations in your activewear wardrobe, November and early December is a good time to check what deals the brand has running.

Why is Sweaty Betty so expensive?

Sweaty Betty is a luxury brand, which means its products are high quality and long-lasting. Not only that, they are specifically designed for purpose, which includes them being made from special fabrics.

Sweaty Betty spokeswoman Katie Stratton once told Business Insider the reason for the brand's higher prices was down to its "up-to-date technology," such as sweat-wicking fabric.

"Sweaty Betty’s ethos is to empower women through fitness by ensuring that they have both stylish and incredibly technical fitness wear," Stratton said. "Our design and buying teams ensure that our product offering includes the most up-to-date technology, which is what sets us apart from our competitors."

Are Sweaty Betty leggings worth it?

The answer to this, in ours (and many others') opinions is a resounding yes. The large majority of the woman&home team own Sweaty Betty leggings, and all agree that while they don't come cheap, they are excellent value for money. The quality and support is evident immediately, as is the confidence they provide knowing they are not in the least bit see through, and the specially made fabric keeps you as cool and as comfortable as possible during a workout.

Another thing the woman&home team agreed on was these leggings are not just great for the gym, but brilliant for everyday wear too. We recently took a deep dive on a number of features of the brand in a Sweaty Betty vs Lululemon comparison, which might be helpful in deciding which luxury activewear brand is right for you.

Should you size up or down for Sweaty Betty?

Sweaty Betty is very good at suggesting what size you should opt for when buying individual products in the features section on its website. For example, the sports bra we mentioned in the sale above says you should size down for the perfect fit.

The woman&home team has every item you could think of collectively, all of whom say the suggestion on the website is one they all follow and 99% of the time the fit is correct. But if not, Sweaty Betty will happily exchange any incorrect sizes fuss-free.
