Sweaty Betty Welcomes New Era of Empowerment with #WearTheDamnShorts Campaign

Sweaty Betty’s successful campaign, Wear The Damn Shorts, returns again to empower even more women to embrace their bodies and stand up to body hang-ups as a sisterhood – ‘side by side, thigh to thigh’.

The ever-popular female-first activewear brand has jump-started its mission through a multi-channel campaign spotlighting the narratives of real women, aiming to destigmatise and normalise discussions surrounding body confidence. Sweaty Betty's initiative included takeovers at three UK locations, welcoming the public to embrace their bodies' capabilities through uplifting workout sessions and captivating, Instagram-worthy changing room installations.

The campaign confronts the toxic idea of the ‘perfect body’ so commonly referred to within the sports industry, instead encouraging self-acceptance and wellbeing as the North Star instead. The Wear The Damn Shorts campaign is all about owning insecurities that make women reluctant to wear shorts, harnessing the idea of sisterhood to empower all individuals with confidence and self-love to wear whatever offers them delight and comfort.

Sweaty Betty makes it clear that the brand is more than just about the fashion – it is a representation of every woman, accepting and embracing marks, scars, age, and shape from all walks of life. It defiantly rejects overused, purplewashed narratives to shine a light on a diverse spectrum of women, giving a voice to women like Danielle Caudill, the mother whose unapologetically honest TikTok video of her Sweaty Betty changing room experience went viral.

Also back to support the summer movement are Sweaty Betty’s Power Shorts, with the popular ‘Wear the Damn Shorts’ T-Shirt also available to purchase for the first time after the waves it made in the original 2023 campaign.

Supercharged by the recent brand refresh, Sweaty Betty is reaching more and more women across the nation, and accelerating the body-confident movement one pair of shorts at a time. Just like the brand goal, “Let’s find strength in our stories. Let’s Wear The Damn Shorts.”
