Bellalete was founded by Savana Lloyd, who got the idea after finishing her collegiate playing career at Texas A&M and then becoming a coach full-time in Southern California. She worked with youth softball players 7 days a week and immediately noticed something disappointing...
None of her students would wear softball pants to lessons - they ALWAYS wore yoga or stretch pants.
She asked them why, they all answered the same way: “We hate our softball pants! They’re uncomfortable, don’t fit right, and look terrible on us.”
Here were motivated and beautiful young women forced to compete in pants that prevented them from playing their best, and that also looked and felt terrible and undermined their performance and confidence.
As Savana noted, "In private lessons with me, they’d work their tails off to take their game to the next level wearing comfortable stretch pants that gave them a full range of motion with their legs and hips, and then on game day they’d be stuck in uncomfortable boys baseball pants that constricted their movements, had cheap fabric scratching their legs, and were totally unflattering on top of all that."
As a female athlete herself, Savana was struck that these beautiful and athletic young women were being ignored by the sports apparel industry.
In 2014, Savana went to work personally designing a new softball pant, taking everything the girls loved about practicing in their athletic workout pants, and made it high performance and functional for softball.
Bellalete pants feature:
• High performance fabric
• A cut and fit designed specifically for girls’ bodies
• A fashionable elastic waistband for increased comfort and confidence
• Sewn-in sliders
• A truly unique design that combines function and fashion
Since selling the first pair in February of 2015 out of the trunk of her car, thousands of softball girls in 36 states and 3 different countries are able to play the game they love with more confidence and comfort knowing they’re wearing a pant designed specifically for them!
Bellalete’s mission is to positively impact the game you and we both love, one softball pant and one player at a time.
