Doesn't fit the way that it is pictured- with the straps crossed in the back. I undid the cross and the bra fit just fine. I did get it on with the straps crossed, but even with the adjustment loosened all the way, the bra was too tight, and wouldn't stay down and cover me. I don't think it is a size issue- I'm a 34a/b and I ordered the small. I love the material though, and it has a good amount of stretch in it as well. In my opinion, merino wool sports bras are the way to go- wicking and warm, even when wet.

I can wear this for days, and it doesn't smell! It does stretch a bit so I don't think it would support running, but it is great for backpacking! It has a back strap like a regular bra so it is easier to get into, even when wet, but supports like a sports bra.

like bra unsure of fit
the fabric is beautiful fine guage wool and the fit of the bra is supportive and comfortable, with a band that sits lower than normal on the torso and long straps that can be worn over the shoulder or cris crossed. Only complaint is that I'm not sure if a medium would fit better as the large is not tight at all. I tend to be either m or l depending on cut and think I will have to order a M to know for sure which I should be wearing.

Comfortable, but stretches
I own several Ibex bras and this one is the least useful. While it is supremely comfortable, it's more traditional hook and eye closure means that the bra's base tends to stretch out, so I'm using the last hooks by the third day of wear (less than practical for traveling.) Some reviewers have noted that the extra wide set of the straps is problematic; not so for me with my swimmer's shoulders, but I can see how that wouldn't work with most bodies. I'd say, opt for the Ibex bralette or more traditional sports bra top.

not a good fit
fabric is wonderful. I am a 34C/36B, ordered a medium. The support band is big but everything else seems the right size. I am disappointed because I love Ibex. I hope they will re-design this,
