Rated 4 out of 5 by from Go up a size I normally take a ladies 10-12 (Australian sizes) and ordered a medium. It was very short (only coming to my waist at the front) so I exchanged it for the large which was a much better length. Exchange process was very prompt and easy. Have only worn the baselayer a couple of times on hot rides. Pleased with it so far.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too short Lovely base layer, however it's way too short. I have a few of the merino base layer, all of them in medium size and they all fit perfectly. This one though, is way too short and stays just above my hips, which feels somehow uncomfortable. Will still wear it as material and made are great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good basic base layer but short Having read the review about this I was concerned about the length. I wanted it to wear under a skinsuit for time trials. I'm 5foot tall and size 6/8 so I went for the xs. It comes down to just below my bellybutton, which is much shorter than any other base layer but apart from that it's good. Take care not to stick safety pins into it by mistake because it does leave holes that don't seem to disappear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect base layer I love it ! I bought it in extra small and it looks and behave really nice. However, compared with the pictures in the store, it's really short. I would have wanted it to be 10 cm's longer (or as on the pics).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it but just wish it was longer. I like the fit, performance and look of the base layer. My only issue is that it's very short. It needs to be at least 1-2 inches longer as it barely tucks into my bibs at the front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit and works well. For these cooler morning rides, I add the base layer and it's just enough to manage the temperature. On the warmer rides I've done during the summer, it kept me comfortable as it wicks aways the moisture from my body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it was designed to do Bought the black one a few weeks ago ready for the London L'Etape. Tried it out on a few longish rides and loved it. Keeps your body dry, whilst all the moisture moves into your jersey. Cycled the L'Etape this weekend 185km and no chaffing or rubbing underarms or at seams. Bought XS (I'm a size 8) and nice snug fit. Overall very pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic ProductI I was looking for a cool base layer for the Australian summer and after a bit of research chose this. It does a great job of moving sweat off my skin and cooling me down. Highly recommended.

does this come w any bra support and do you recommend a sports bra underneath?

Asked by: BM21
Hi, it does not have any bra support. The use of a bra beneath is purely a personal preference so we cannot advise on this matter.
