The material is fantastic. It doesn't show under my suit pants. It fits great and doesn't slide down or move around like other pull up braces I've tried. I have been wearing a heavier Tensor brace while my knee recovered. This also worked very well for me. My knee no longer requires the heavy brace, so this brace is just perfect for me. I don't understand why some people have issues with it sliding down. Maybe they purchased the wrong size of brace, because this baby doesn't move until I take it off at night. From my perspective, it works perfectly!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
