I was a very lucky lady a few weeks ago to be sent two Sweaty Betty tops to test out during yoga. One issue I have is finding a top that will support my chest, as last thing you want to feel unsupported, obviously a sports bra is best but some tops just don't do there part in helping.

The top I'm wearing in the photos above is my favourite, first the colour is extremely beautiful, it has hidden support. (you can get away without wearing a sports bra) and it's different and fashionable. You'll perhaps have seen in my Fitness & Fashion post how great it is to indulge in both - but of course still remaining practical.
This Chaturanga Yoga Cami comes in two colours sea urchin (pictured) and magenta and is priced at £55.00. It's seamless which makes it easy to slip on and according to Sweaty Betty it made with Q-skin life long antibacterial yarn, that is sweat wicking and high stretching. The back has a Lattice strap and as you can see from the image there is a ruched effect along the front - great for the days when you don't feel your smallest!
The next I wanted to try was the simple Chandi Yoga Vest in a lagoon colour, although it does come in a beautiful shade called purple paradise. This is a very effortless piece that is seamless, stretchy long fit, creates a gorgeous silhouette with the ribbed side panels and has thick straps in a racer style. This has no hidden support so some kind of sports bra is a must, however saying that because it is so stretchy it still felt extremely supportive.
Even though this was Chandni Yoga Vest, priced £39.00 is less detailed than the Chaturanga Yoga Cami, it still felt just as good and I did feel held in and that it was a flattering fit...plus the colour is gorgeous! I tried these tops out in my morning yoga sessions at home and in various external group yoga classes - loved them all the more as I felt fashionable too!
Investing in good sportswear is essential if you want to look and feel good. I am a great believer that if you feel comfortable in what you're exercising in, it makes your performance that bit better.
