my physio suggested I try a compression shirt to help support my hypomobile back/shoulders/arms. Actual compression shirts are some sixty quid each and come in polyester, polyester or polyester. My skin doesn't like me wearing plastic, so I picked up this cotton/lycra wicking base layer instead. It's still providing compression support, but it was only 25 notes and doesn't make my skin crawl.

Also features natty arm stripes for extra street cred.

If it does the same job why not, especially if you get extra street cred!

Good idea - all mine shrank a little on first wash which can only help...
If you can bear the idea, some dance kit might work for you as well. There's a lot less shiny in gentleman's ballet outfitting these days but a fair deal of lycra.

Neat. I've been using Helly for a few years now - pretty good stuff IMHO, lasts. AND has arm stripes, which has got to be worth something.

Funny, I just bought a Helly Lifa Crew base layer :-). It's getting cold on the bike in the mornings.

But if it was polyester you could give everyone static shocks! Electricboy! or Mr Van de Graff!

I once spent some time at (what was then) the biggest truck stop in the US. They had polyester carpet, and I had rubber-soled shoes. I found that if I dragged my feet a bit, I could dispense electricity via my finger to anyone/thing I wanted.

So much fun.
