they are not that expensive. you might find yourself not wearing it though. they get fairly uncomfortable, it is not that bad but it is like wearing a life jacket all day, constant pressure and no airflow. I have found that exercise shirts work great for under it- shirts like "underarmor" brand (kindof funny bc i dont think that was the intended use
) basically one of those shirts that is all synthetic fibers and advertises that it wicks the sweat off.
