Glisten Long Sleeve Ski Top
All sports thermal
This is my third buy of this top (one lost, one still going strong), I use them in winter as ski thermals and in summer as a warm layer for running at altitude. They wash well, hold their colour and fit perfectly. I love the soft fabric and bright colours.
The only thing I would change is that the fabric tends to get a bit stinky if you get a sweat on...obviously if you're only wearing once this is not a problem however for multi day adventures not as smell free as merino...!

Lovely top - a favourite!
I bought this top based on the experience of an identical top, in coral, I bought 3 years ago. It appears to be the same fabric, shape, style and quality as the first top I bought. I love it. The fabric is lovely, soft and seamless and the colour is ideal for me.
As I am now 8 months pregnant I cannot wear it yet but I look forward to wearing it very soon. I wore the original coral top often while skiing or casually on weekends before getting pregnant. When I got pregnant I wore it up to being 6+ months pregnant, while Nordic walking, as it was so comfortable and I did not over heat in it.
The original top has kept its original shape, softness and colour well. I do look after the top and wash it in a gentle 30 degree wash with similar colours.

Rolls up all the time
I bought this running top a couple of weeks ago. Its a nice colour and it looks lovely on, but it keeps rolling up. Another friend has a similar top from Sweaty Betty. She has exactly the same problem. For an expensive top it needs this design fault sorted out as I won't be buying another one for this reason.

Best thermal top of the last ski trip. Flattering texture and warm.

Toasty top that is well worth the money!
I ordered this top the other day based on previous excellent reviews and also that I have had bamboo items before (from other brands) and have always liked them. I have not been disappointed! I have just had my first run in this top and have never felt so toasty. I REALLY feel the cold (more then average I think) but I felt cosy and warm throughout my run and the fabric was so soft and lovely on my skin. I ordered a medium (based on previous reviews that said it was a snug fit) and am normally a size 10 and I am really glad I did. It is very fitted but that is not a criticism at all. Excellent top and well worth the money.

Soft and comfortable
I also have this in purple, but a size up from normal. I find it very comfortable and easy to wear. Keeps me warm for yoga and tennis.

Glisten LS Top
I aim to use this for running in Autumn weather. I bought it because of its basic bamboo fabric. I have other running tops made of this and they don't feel like nylon as so many running tops do - nylon brings me out in itches - so this top is perfect for sweat-wicking while keeping me warm enough and feeling as close to cotton as it's possible for a breathable running top to do.

Lovely colour - v different to the picture
Love this, it is joining my other 3 Glistens in my drawer. The colour is so much nicer than the picture suggests - much more of a coral than the red it looks on the website.

Warm and snuggly
Really pleased with this - very warm, great colour. Love the fabric - v fitted so I use it for layering. Will buy another in the next winter range if it's released again
