When you think of high-quality, stylish fitness brands, Sweaty Betty instantly springs to mind. The OG female-first activewear brand was launched back in 1998 as a small London boutique, quickly growing into a global phenomenon and community known and loved by all. Now, the brand is turning 25, which means one thing only: it's time to celebrate.

The 25 Years Strong Campaign is kicking off with a sponsored Royal Parks Half marathon to help raise funds to empower teenage girls to get active, a virtual store-to-store Strava challenge (which you can take part in!) as well as an exclusive range of birthday products that are to die for. On top of that, we here at Closer are celebrating Sweaty Betty's 25th birthday, the best way we know how, which is by spotlighting our five holy grail Sweaty Betty pieces that are currently sitting in our closets (or laundry baskets) and that we simply can't live without.

From the brand's best-selling Power collection, branching across leggings and bras, to the extra-technical Zero Gravity collection designed for high-impact workouts, Sweaty Betty's activewear hits the mark every single time. Shop our top five can't live without pieces below, as well as the brand's special 25th birthday collection.

If you're not aware of Sweaty Betty's Power collection, all we can say is: get to know. These leggings are designed for every workout, made from a super-stretchy fabric with flattering seams to make the bum pop. The material is sweat-wicking and quick-drying for all sports, too. A dream.

What's a great pair of leggings without an even better sports bra? The Power Medium Support bra is the brand's best-selling model, now with a new and improved fit. It has a flattering scoop neck and looped back, and the sweat-wicking, stretchy material means you'll feel comfy and confident no matter how sweaty your workout.

Sweaty Betty's latest bra launch, you can expect personalised support with the new innovative Power Icon Bra collection.

The Zero Gravity running leggings are extra-technical, with high-performance contour detailing. They're made from ultra-lightweight fabric which are quick-drying, no matter how sweaty your sprint gets. The high waist-design, adjustable waist and added pockets make these leggings ideal for high-performance sports.

Another brilliant sports bra designed for high-impact workouts like running. This bra offers high levels of support thanks to the anti-bounce design which keep your boobs in place, without squashing them. It's lightweight, sweat-wicking and super sculpting, too.
