Product name: The Cotton Concealer Compression Muscle Shirt

Manufacturer’s website: http://ftm.underworks.com/

Cup size at time of use: 34 A

Comfort: 4/5

  • It’s very comfortable and warm, although I have to pull it over my head because pulling it up shifts the inner material too much and causes the cotton outside and inner panels to become misaligned and then it becomes a mess. It’s very stretchy material and not too bad to work out in at home.

Effectiveness: 1.5/5

  • I got an extra-small size because it’s the recommended size for me, and when I put it on I still had a bump. When I went out to play soccer with some friends with this on, I had to wear another compression shirt underneath to get the flatness I wanted. Without the extra compression shirt, I had two very visible breasts still, so it didn’t really do much of anything for me except prevent them from bouncing around (which makes it essentially a longer, more expensive sports bra).

Discreetness: 3/5

  • I got the black colour, so it looks like a muscle shirt, and it looks very natural by itself, but doesn’t compress very well, and it’s quite long to wear untucked. The collar is also quite high, so when I wore it underneath another shirt, it poked through which brought up a lot of questions as to why I was wearing a black undershirt.

Overall : 2.5/5

  • It’s comfortable for home use, but aside from exercising in it, or wearing it amongst understanding friends, it wasn’t very helpful to me. I got the smallest size and it barely did any compressing.
