Giordana Donna (a486) review
One of the range of fashionable Donna jerseys from the Italian brand Giordana, this top comes in a great cut and choice of colours.
It’s closely fitted all over thanks to a shaped, pieced construction at the front and sides and curved raglan style sleeves. The cuffs and hem are lightly elasticised in a contrasting colour that adds to the aesthetics. In 100 per cent polyester it stayed cool but didn’t dry as quickly as some other weaves such as Nike’s Dri-Fit. However, the hidden front zip lets air circulate and it even has a soft fabric cover over the end so that it doesn’t rub against the tummy. Features-wise, there’s a reflective logo at the rear and two small, narrow pockets, which might have been better to combine into one large pocket for the space they’re allowed.
