notsofastmrbond Mon 19-Sep-11 11:42:57

That looks like it would roll up over my spare tyre, sadly.

ireallyagreewithyou Mon 19-Sep-11 11:43:03

yup but free postage at Jl if you buy masses!
i am a busty 12/14 and got a L

ireallyagreewithyou Mon 19-Sep-11 11:43:16

no rolling at all. stays DOWN
buy it

notsofastmrbond Mon 19-Sep-11 11:44:26

Hmmm. I'm too fat to wear that kind of thing to the gym right now, but will bookmark it for a couple of months time grin

ireallyagreewithyou Mon 19-Sep-11 11:46:20

i think showing off less chest is much more slimming. and sleevelss is BRILL for spinning

smartyparts Mon 19-Sep-11 19:38:20

I really agree with you!

I have got it in black and wore it to spinning this morning!

ireallyagreewithyou Tue 20-Sep-11 19:07:58

and it DOESNT Budge
and is so soft and comfy

just ordered the neon pink one from the cheap link

How long is it please?

I run and need something that covers my tummy and thenworst of my bumblush

I have some Nike running tops already which fit the bill as I sized up but I like the colours of those ones.

ireallyagreewithyou Tue 20-Sep-11 19:38:08

LONG if you pulled it down to crotch i think
nice to ruche over arse

ireallyagreewithyou Tue 20-Sep-11 19:38:26

i HAVE found nike a bit short in the past
this is way the best

HandMini Tue 20-Sep-11 19:42:54

Ughg, hideous, looks like a school gym top.

I love Sweaty Betty ones - super long, matching sports bras and nice flattering racer backs.

Like this one www.sweatybetty.com/athlete-vest-prodwc0162_aqua/

ireallyagreewithyou Tue 20-Sep-11 19:44:13

i dont like that for tit reasons

spinning = you bend over a lot

HeavyHeidi Tue 20-Sep-11 20:01:50

I agree, the sweaty betty is too low cut and their matching sports bras are for small sizes only. I teach some fitness classes and am an F-cup, always such a pain to find tops that will not make me look like a pornstar - not something I'm aiming for when in front of the class and dozens of people staring at me.

HandMini Tue 20-Sep-11 20:15:20

Fair dos on the Sweaty Betty bras.....I am a C cup and can only just squeeze into their crop bras...good support though! I like a low cut top with a more fulsome bra that then shows.

cornsillx Tue 20-Sep-11 20:35:49

I have a top just like that (that same colour) with short sleeves from sports world.

cornsillx Tue 20-Sep-11 20:36:38

I need new gym pants though.

smartyparts Tue 20-Sep-11 20:41:14

Re tit reasons - I was at spinning today, next to a large woman with a low cut top.

I couldn't stop looking at her tits when she was standing - they were having an exercise class all of their own, at double the speed of the rest of her.

I have now ordered 2 more of these tops from bargainous site.

ireallyagreewithyou Tue 20-Sep-11 22:30:10

Agree re tots not needing to make a guest appearance

ireallyagreewithyou Tue 20-Sep-11 22:30:42

Ha. And tits

TrillianAstra Tue 20-Sep-11 22:32:57

My gym top is a built-in sports bra.

(not midriff-showing but down-to-waist top where the top bit IS the sports bra)

So that top looks rubbish to me as you'd have to wear a sports bra as well.

ireallyagreewithyou Tue 20-Sep-11 22:39:05

Lol at the file who thinks built in sports bras work over a d cup

TrillianAstra Tue 20-Sep-11 22:40:29

It's a sports bra with some material coming down from the bottom to cover your tummy. How is that less effective than one that reveals your midriff?

and I'm only a B so what do I know

still not in love with your very unexciting top though
