Oh, I'm not planning to buy it - was just googling for hi-vis tops to see what was about before going shopping, and this popped up. I think a trip to JJB at the weekend is called for, anyway :)

Don't buy a JJB one. I did about 3 months ago and yesterday the zipper thing, that fastens the zip disintegrated. To be fair they did say that if i took it back they would look at it. However, bought it cash and didn't keep the reciept. This morning I had to fasten it up with safety pins; looking to get some velcro fasten it up with.

Hmmm, I don't have much alternative to JJB, except for a specialist running shop which, while no doubt staffed with lovely helpful people and selling good quality kit, will almost certainly have nothing to fit anyone bigger than a sparrow. And I'm more ostrich proportions :lol:

Zanshin, take it back anyway... you may well just get a replacement, that is unless the manager's in a bad mood! lol. That's how things seemed to happen when I was working there whilst @ Uni!

12 month for faulty. If it is a brand that is sold at JJB they should at least exchange it.

BPC. Why not go and see if you like something then ask them to order your size in :)

H - most sports clothes manufacturers just don't make stuff in my size :( Even the few websites that specialise in the bigger sizes have very little choice - the stuff just isn't out there.

I'm a size 18 on top, which most normal clothes shops stock these days, but apparently only slim girls run :evil:

JJB has such a wide range of stuff that I can try loads of things on and if I'm lucky, I might find a generous size 16 that fits. I hate shopping for sports stuff. :(

Never mind, if I keep it up, I'll be able to find much more that fits me before long

Know what you mean BPC. Mr Squeak says I ought to be banned from running in my jogging bottoms with a short t-shirt because the wobbling creates seismic tremors:confused: So this week-end I'll be hunting for a long top that covers all parts that have a life of their own.:d

Hmmm, curvy girls, yum :)

Mrs hrun is 16, but chesty so it means stuff gets tight. Might be worth looking at cycling gear. It is still wicking but has longer length due to the riding position.
