To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Size xs fits size 8 woman perfectly. No real compression at all, but is "skin tight". Tightest point is the bottom of the top. Long fit and tight seam means any glutes that deadlift will not allow you to pull it down. If shapewear is what you are after, just buy some spandex. This is just a weirdly stitched t-shirt. Opaque.
I use these for running and they do the job. However, you will feel the cold in winter running because they are more suited to summer training. I would advise getting a size up otherwise it night be a bit too tight in the body (especially if you have a bit of a stomach showing).
Very good product. I am definitely a Medium kind of guy, but this might be a tad small. Then again what do I expect from a Compression top really. Does a great job of wicking the moisture away from my body.
