Lini Kazim is known in the running and cycling community for her wittiness and zealousness in sports. Youthful, stunning and young at heart, Lini is always caught smiling and jovial whenever we get to see her. We were privileged and humbled to get Lini to test one of our products. She not only tested our compression arm sleeves, but she also was the FIRST to purchase our full support compression bra. Here’s a review by Lini, in her own words.
The arm sleeves by Nashata that I recently tried have a very vibrant fresh pink colour, that is visible from afar. This is an additional benefit for me especially when cycling in order to draw the attention of the motorists of my presence on the road. They fit very comfortably on my mid bicep and the elastic used is fairly soft that I did not have any chafing or irritation even after a 3 hour bike ride.
I love arm sleeves for a lot of reasons but mainly:
a) they add fashion to my short sleeve shirts
b) in cold weather, I can start the run/ride with the arm sleeves on and roll down the sleeves when the body warms up
c) they help protect my skin from direct sunlight
d) for some of my Muslim running friends, they find that the choice of long sleeve running shirts are limited in Malaysia but with these sleeves, they can now opt for short sleeve shirts and complement the shirt with the arm sleeves to cover the aurat. This indirectly benefits me because they now run happy and that makes me happy!
The arm sleeves also feature a thumb hole which I did not use as I prefer to have direct contact with my handle bar for better grip. However, I am sure it is definitely a great feature to have when running either in the cold or to ensure that there is no tan-line at the wrist area!
The fit for the arm sleeves was very comfortable and I did not at any time felt that they were too tight that it was cutting off my blood circulation!
Well done Nashata for a great product.
Thank you Lini!
She suggested a few improvements:
a) UV protection
b) More color options
c) option without the thumb hole
We certainly will take heed about her feedback.
The thumb hole is for sisters who have longer hands and prefer full covering. With the thumb hole, you can rest assured, your aurah around your wrist is covered. But yes, we can provide an option.
What about arm sleeves with prints + UV protection? Do let us know and if you want to take a quick look at the compression arm sleeves Lini tested, all you need is 30 secs of your time 🙂
