So good I own 3
Usually I hate my sports and regular bras - usual complains are uncomfortable, need to tuck at them all the time, smelly, get sweaty and stay sweaty. Not these Ibex ones. I use them for both running (I'm 36A, so they provide enough support for running) and casual. They are comfortable and provides the support without choking me. Whereas my other synthetic sports bras smell salty after 1 run, I can keep running in these and never wash them. They are lightweight enough that I can wear them in the hottest days of summer. I've bought 1 each year, and plan to buy more as they come on sale.

Soft, wicking, good support
Bought because wool will keep the temperature right, and it does. Hesitated because I have sensitive skin and do not like scratchy stuff but it is very soft (and I am super particular about scratchy. I dislike most regular T-shirts for their seams, everythings has to be flat seam or no seam etc.). Was amazed at the support it offers - obviously not a sports bra (and the sports bra version does NOT have the usual sport bra support btb), but for a light bra the support is great, much better than expected. Very comfy fit with the option to cross the straps or not. Dries quickly, wicking, and I sweat less in it than in any other technical synthetic bra that was supposed to be wicking. Thumbs up, great product!

Love this bra
Didn't think I could love a bra...but this one I do! It is styled very similarly to some of my others, but the fabric here is key. You wouldn't think wool could feel so nice against the skin, but this does. No itchiness, just soft comfort. The best part, no funky smells! I never quite understood what the big deal was about synthetics and the funny smells they could generate -- until I started to notice my other bras, and one doesn't ever really want to notice one's sports bra. Just happens I guess if you wear and sweat in something enough times. But I don't have to worry about that with this Ibex wool. I'm definitely getting another one at some point.

I love this bra. I am a nursing mom who practices a lot of yoga and spends a good portion of time outdoors. I wanted a more natural material and recently fell in love with wool for its anti stink, warming/cooling properties and soft feel...although this bra is made with some stretchy materials too, it really gives the bra its support and I feel like it is a good compromise. They are expensive, but it seems well worth it. The hardware is made from durable metal, not plastic and the straps are capable of wearing either as either a racerback or a standard bra. All in all, I really love the color selection, comfort, feel, and seeming durability. I bought another one the next day. Only problem with the second one is that I noticed a fraying thread already- but it seems controlled and hopefully will not affect the longevity of the bra itself. did I mention it doesnt get stinky? i love it. great buy!

Great bra top!
This bra fits snugly, but not tight. I'm tall and the adjustable straps make it a perfect fit for any height. The merino is very soft and there is enough compression/support for moderate aerobic activities. Plus, it is adorable and could be worn alone in warmer months.
