Fab sports bra
I love merino wool products, and this is the first wool bra I've tried. The middleweight fabric is great for a sports bra--no show through and lots of support. I usually wear a small in sports bras (5'3", 125 pounds with ample shoulders, 34C, and a narrow waist), but I ordered the medium and it's perfect. The shoulders are cut out nicely so there's no chafing. The band underneath is firm, but keeps the bra in place comfortably. I didn't have any problems getting into/out of this bra, unlike other reviewers. I've been wearing this bra for all sorts of mountain and road biking, and just in general too. I will be ordering another one. My only minor issue was all the big labels sewn inside (they picked), but I just carefully removed all remnants of them.

impeccable Icebreaker quality - only a fit issue
I'm a small in all the Icebreaker t-shorts and long-sleeve shirts so i bought the bra in S as well. The quality of the bra is great - awesome stitching - but i was squished - so this had to go back. Medium works much better - I'm a 32C in regular bra. Hope this helps whoever is trying to figure out sizes.

Good serviceable bra
Love to run in wool, all year round. Great in cool weather, wore it today in 75 degree weather: nice. Snug getting on, snug getting off. Recommend this for a smaller frame. I am 5'4", 120 lbs., and had trouble with it. Very good looking, fit to be worn by itself. Looking forward to having it for a long time. Excited to have it. Love the black.

Fits very small
I have yet to test it but it fits very small. I normally wear an XS in the icebreaker line and the S was still too tight for comfort around the band. Reordered a M and although other reviewers say it was then a little too large, it fit me perfectly. The construction and fabric is similar to the other icebreaker clothing quality so I'm looking forward to a non sticking bra!

Part of the workout is getting into it
As a previous reviewer pointed out, this bra has an odd fit. I wear a 34B and find the band on the small is a bit tight, but it gives good support for running. It can be hard to get in and out of, but is worth the effort. I was concerned that it would chafe because the armholes seem to be cut for a narrower chest, but after a 4-mile race in 80+ temps, I can say that chafing is not a problem. No itch, no stink, dries quickly, and quickly wicks moisture to the outside so it can evaporate. Machine washes in cold water without shrinkage (I don't put it in the dryer). I'm happy with it and will order another.
