For Christmas I got an Omega #6126, love the handle but the brush when wet is pretty floppy, seems to be because the loft is so tall. It doesn't seem to lather very good with creams but ok with soaps. My only brush experience before this one was a VDH cheapo boar and a wee scott. Am I doing something wrong in the lathering? Is it possible to trim a brushes length a bit to make it a bit more stiff? Other than the lack of lather ability I like the brush.
