Girls BA's

Postby ruby » Fri Sep 14, 2012 11:02 am

Theres already a post about BA's on here but I was just wondering specifically about the girls ones as I know there are a few of us looking to get one at some point this year.

Are the womens fit ones like the luna and halo a better fit or does it not really matter? Obviously the best way to work this out is probably to try some on but I was just wondering if anyone had any opinions?

I found the Luna uncomfortable. The non-gender specific green jacket (I think) was really comfy and I just bought an extreme which I found better than the Luna. The old Palm women's fit one I had was fantastic (could sell you it if you wanted?) but they're new stuff seems rubbish...

I've tried the luna and the halo on and found them both pretty comfy, so its probably best just to try a range on like you say. Also tried on various palm non-women's fit ones on and found them really comfy as well, but still preferred women's specific.
