Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functional, comfortable, durable Bought this for a summer base layer as loved the Rapha Merino singlet winter base layer so much. I actually use it to keep me a little better insulated on cooler mornings whilst I'm warming up and it works a treat. Then as the sun rises, along with the heat, it keeps wicking well and managing my temperature. Close fitting to the extent that I don't even feel I'm wearing it. Durable and extremely lightweight. No scratchy seams. Another great product from Rapha.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easily forgotten! This is so light it's easy to forget you're wearing it. But what it does do for us women, is preserve dignity - those days when you're so warm climbing you really want to undo your jersey zip but don't want to give the locals a nasty surprise? This takes all the worry away! It is a tiny bit on the short side if you're wearing waist shorts and can ride up to gather around your waist if you don't take care to pull it down to tuck it in!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Line of products but runs small I love the lightweight fabric of this whole line, so wonderful for those warm summer days. I did have to exchange mine as every item I've encountered from the Souplesse line runs a bit smaller than the majority of the rest of the Rapha gear I have. Normally wear a small jersey and needed a medium in this so it wouldn't too snug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's all about the base layers I recently purchased a 3 pack of women's base layers, and I love them. The fit is fantastic, and they are like wearing a second skin. Love the hot pink particularly! Highly recommend. I also just wanted to say how beautiful the packaging detail was too. It was like a gorgeous gift.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Favorite Base Layer This base layer does its job very well. It pulls moisture away from my body to help regulate my body temperature - in hot weather it pulls moisture away to help cool me and is light enough not to add extra bulk or make me heat up, and in cooler temps it wicks sweat off my skin to prevent me from getting too chilly. I haven't tried it in cold temps yet, but will likely stick with a winter base layer in the winter as it does get down to freezing here. I'm 5'3" and 130 lbs and the small fits perfectly. It's fitted but not too snug. The length is also great - long enough to stay tucked in my bibs, but not so long that it gets bunched up. I took one star off because the meshy material is a little delicate - just be careful when handling and washing that there isn't anything around that will cause a snag. I've had one of these for about 9 months and recently bought more because I never want to ride in anything else. After 9 months and regular use and washing, my first one is still in great condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snug and comfortable My first sleeveless baselayer, and is the most comfortable. The racer back design gives an unobstructed shoulder and arm movements. Fitting is body hugging therefore wicking is superb. I like the fabric, too. Light weight and very comfortable. I feel I am riding faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent base layer, fits well This base layer is just as good for short rides as it is for 100 milers. I had been put off by the reviews on the sizing, but it fits me perfectly and isn't short in the body as feared.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful fabric but very small fitting Initially ordered the small but too tight around armholes.. Same thing with the medium size. It is cut quite tight around the armholes, returned both, pity cause beautiful garment.

Hello, Does this have a built in bra or extra lining cross the chest? Let's be frank, are my nipples going to be visible through this Souplesse base layer? 

Asked by: KrisParis
Hi, the Souplesse Base Layer does not have a built in bra, or contain extra lining across the chest. The item is designed to be worn with a bra.

Would you recommend sizing up in this item?

Asked by: kkit
Hi, with the Souplesse base layer we recommend purchasing the same size as your jersey. We do have a free 90 returns period should you need to exchange.
