The 'Almost Naked' Truth!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

All I can say is 'WOW'...Not at all what I expected!!! Unless you are in perfect, prime, tip-top shape, forget it! Not only that, while the top pictured on-line is absolutely sharp, what it doesn't really show is that it is also absolutely SHEAR on the sides, and even the front side of your bosoms show (mine did anyway!),...I mean a WIDE strip of shear material (all the white material you see is totally transparent, not opaque, and so as it stretches when put on of course that's more 'you' and your bra that shows, especially if you have a curvy figure), or rather, lack of material. Just too extreme for me. I'm quite sure it's like wearing nothing, cause there's nothing too it. You see everything, you'll be a big hit with the guys! So very disappointed. Also runs very small, smaller than most others (and F.Y.I.: found out by trial & error, go by the size chart on; just not enough room for the 'girls', and just not for me. Going back to Giordana!

Any cycling clothing on the higher end of the spectrum (ie. expensive, performance-oriented) will run smaller, or what's called a "race fit". If you've got "girls", or anything else that you don't want to draw attention to in a, let's say, "flamboyant" way, you'll want to order a size or two up. Or, you might want to consider clothing that is a "club fit" or "casual/fitness fit". Most manufacturers, like Louis Garneau, offer both kinds. LG's quality is almost next to none, so I wouldn't give up on them completely!

The sheerness of this garment is just not for me; and yes, just too small (up top) for me to fit in. I've no problems with the Giordana line, though. To each his/her own...
