Default Women's Singlets

Does anyone have any suggestions on the best, most comfortable and also flattering women's competition singlets? I have seen these (link wfs)
http://www.dynamic-eleiko.com/ (adidas atenus) but was wondering if anyone has a better suggestion! I am medium build I guess, 63kg weightclass, masters division!

I don't have any suggestions on where to buy one. When I bought mine I was lucky enough to find a distributor relatively close to me where I could go and try on several. The advice I can give you has to do with the - uh - delicate question of what to wear under it as singlets are quite form fitting . One of my fellow female lifters said that most ladies she knows wear "UnderArmour" underwear and I found that this was good advice .

Whatever you are most comfortable lifting in for the top (athletic or regular bra). The UnderArmour was the suggestion for avoiding those unsightly panty lines . You've got enough to worry about when you step out on the platform without having that concern!

Singlets are singlets, relatively all the same at the meets I've been to.

You want something from Victoria Secrets or something that works?
