Am I the only one with this compression shirt issue? (Read 906 times)


Needs more cowbell!

    I have 2 different compression tops--one Under Armor, one Champion. The bottoms of both ride up to my natural waist, thus baring my lower belly...not something I am keen to do at this stage in the game (had I abs like Pam's, then I'd probably be happy to have this happen). Does this happen to anyone else? At first I thought it was just the cut of the Under Armor, but then I bought the Champion one and was frustrated to have the same issue. k

      Educate me. What are compression shirts all about i.e. purpose? Signed, (Technical) T-shirt wearing dude on excellent pain medication

      On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

        I don't really know...mostly they are just snugger than regular technical shirts. More like running tights, but for the upper body. k

          I like loose shirts in the heat. Or singlets.
            That's exactly why I don't wear those types of shirts, Zoomie! I have a long sleeved Under Amour one and it always rides up .. I'm forever tugging on it, and it annoys me.

              Don't own one and don't plan on it.

                See. This is why I run in just a running bro.

                      Actually, with enough post its around my waist, that keeps my compression top down.

                        I wonder if this is more of an issues for us girls, since we have a more defined waist? I remember that the women's winner of the GR Marathon last Fall was wearing a short-sleeved Under Armor top and in all of the photos it wasn't riding-up, but she also wasn't particularly curvy and had more of a straight line from ribcage to waist. k

                            sure is! All over the board that is.

                              As soon as I clicked out of this thread and looked at the entire main board I knew exactly what you were talking about. I love when Trent gets bored! Big grin k
