Took the plunge and bought my first skins compression top - thought I had crushed a rib.

I had that exact same problem with mine. Which was weird, because that was a pair of shorts.

I bought a Decathlon football "Kipsta" long sleeved shirt after my club mate said it was better than expensive compression wear. After 2 washes it would struggle to compress a Transit Van

I once bought some Skins socks, or those sock-things that had stirrups instead of feet. They wouldn't stay up when I ran.

The skins reminds me of wetsuit so i doubt they will go out of shape too much but they should make trying to get the top off an olympic sport.
