    Reviews for this bra were so mixed that I had to order one just to see for myself. I too am a fan of the Ex Officio underpants, so was curious to see how a bra made of the same material would be. I like it! I am a 34B and purchased size Small. I've worn the bra several times on hot summer days with loose-fitting woven shirts (e.g. linen) and while working outside for an environmental organization, and I'm very happy with it. Everything stays put just fine - nothing falls out, straps stay up, and when I'm back inside it dries out faster than more substantial bras. I can also rinse it out in the sink and let it dry overnight to wear the next day. It is rather obviously NOT a good bra for high-impact workouts, and I wouldn't wear it with tight knits due to the "headlight" effect. But it's great to have in summer rotation and it's comfortable. The only thing I would suggest as a change is that the bottom band could be a little wider as it has a tendency to roll slightly.

    While I would not typically post a photo of myself in a bra on the internet, I want folks to see how it fits on a non-model!

    When being very active the cups had a tendency to let the girls out so to speak. So I added a line of stitches to the cups and that solved the problem. I'd definitely buy again, and would still add the stitches. See photo.

    I bought this (and another one in black) for my trip to Egypt and Jordan in June. I needed a bra without a ton of padding and that was quick drying for the heat (boob sweat sucks, ladies, and it was 117 with my being outside 6-7 hours a day!). This bra was amazing at wicking away moisture, but it did not keep me completely dry. However, after 5 hours in the Valley of the Kings in 117 heat with me being down in the stuffy tombs, I think only a miracle would have kept me actually dry. I think that being sweaty in this bra was by far better than a traditional bra. It did dry quickly and the lack of padding let my boobs "breath" even when I was wet and sweaty. The bra also dried well overnight so it was dry the next day. The biggest surprise was that it never smelled! After 14 days of straight sweat, it still didn't smell at all!

    I am a D-DD and I did not experience what others wrote about with one of my boobs popping out if I bent over. I was always secure in it despite being very active (climbing up and down out of tombs, walking, hiking, sailing, etc.)

    However, the lack of padding came with a price. At the airport, I was an a fitted t-shirt and this bra (I brought no others) and the AC was on full blast (the first time I felt real AC in 12 days) and it was REALLY clear that I was freezing. Awkward... Thankfully I had a headscarf in my bag that was big enough to cover me up for the 2 hours I had to wait for the plane.

    Another perk, without padding they fold really tiny into suitcases!

    I'm a 38C and I'm between sizes in this bra. I bought the Large and the Medium. The large loose but comfortable for me, almost like wearing nothing but not quite. The medium is tighter around the rib cage but offers more support. After about 8 hours I want to take it off because of a seam on the side digging in. It doesn't squeeze or give me lines, just rubs a bit. When ordering down, just be aware, that elastic might cause some discomfort. I typically don't wear sculpted bras or anything with underwire, I like shelf bras and minimal support. Overall I've found both sizes of this bra to be extremely comfortable. Even when I've gotten sweaty, they've breathed well.

    I love that these dry fairly quickly. You do have to wring them out pretty well and the crossover area in the front needs to be spread out a bit. Line drying from the washing machine of course takes no time at all.

    I'm docking one star because the sizing is strange and I really wish they would provide a proper size chart.

    I've recently started just using 2 of these bras plus a dress with a shelf bra, and it's great. Not just for travelling but if you're trying to reduce your environmental footprint, this significantly reduces the amount of laundry you need to do each week. I typically wear one for 2-3 days (unless I'm really sweaty) and just wash it when I take a shower. I do the same with the Exofficio underwear (I have 3 pairs). It's not only significantly reduced the amount of laundry I have to do each week, but it's also reduced the amount of stuff I need to take with me when travelling.

    UPDATE:

    After experimenting with several quick drying soft cup bras, I've put these at the bottom of the list. They are great for sleeping in on hot nights and that's about it. I do not recommend actually wearing them as they are ugly and offer zero support. I ended up purchasing a nylon lace racerback bra that dries faster than this bra does from a sink watch and offers better lift.

    The racerback bra I recommend for women above a B-cup is the Cosabella Never Say Never Racie Racerback Bra - http://www.amazon.com/Cosabella-Womens-Never-Racie-Racer/dp/B00NCUUJV0

    They run really big. I got a medium because I'm six feet tall and I'm always afraid a small will be a short rather than just more narrow. In regular sized bras I wear a 34b. Medium fits; a small would also probably fit. It's not too big though. Dries in an hour, super comfy, don't wear it on the trampoline especially if you have actual breasts because it is not a restraint device. I wear this bra all the time but I have small breasts, I'm not a runner and I don't own a trampoline.

    Best barely bra ever! This does exactly what I want: start comfortable, provide minimal support, absorb boob sweat, and stay comfortable. Fabric feels great, dries fast, and breathes. I like that it's lowcut enough to wear under shirts with a low neck line. These have become an everyday wear.

    This is not an athletic bra or a push up bra, so don't expect firm support, underwires, or padding. The lines & cleavage are still attractive while the fit is comfortable!

    I ordered this a size down, as per the reviews, but it is still too big. The straps are really wide--and I have pretty broad shoulders. There's no way they'd stay on. I looked into returning it, but "doesn't fit" was not one of the options for return. Also, I didn't not want to be out approximately 25% of the purchase price, which is what shipping would cost to return this. I ended up giving it to someone. I wish I had bought this from a physical store, where I could try it on.

    This bra is cool and comfortable. I have several, and I am so glad to have them for wearing in the heat (which is most of the time where I live), when I travel, and whenever I want absolute comfort (always). I can put this bra on and forget it throughout a busy day. I have a 107 cm (42 inch) bust and the extra large fits easily. They are very light, and take up very little room when packing. When travelling, I wash them in the shower and they dry very quickly. They seem to be wearing well. These bras and the Exofficio full briefs are the best underwear ever, travelling or not. Until these, I didn't know underwear could make such a difference to your comfort, especially when it's hot.

    Extremely disappointing. This brand has not let me down in the undies department until this bra. It supports like the other reviews stated. Not much. Very comfy. This item did stretch out really fast and if you take a nap, ya boobs are falling right out. To be honest. Comfy is it is, I would not spend that kind of money when a 3 pack of looms costs less, points you in the right direction and supports more even for relaxed wear. If you are having a chill day in ya pj's, this could be a nice "lazy bra".

    I loved the product but it was too big. I wore this for the Camino and it is very comfortable but as it was bigger than expected there was no support. I would buy again but in a size smaller.

    didn't wear it. fits poorly. I think it was light years too big but I couldn't be bothered to return it. I gave it away.

    Cansada de buscar un buen bra sin barillas por fin encontré una excelente opción. Llegó a tiempo y excelente empaquetado. Es cómodo, muy bonita tela. Buena compra¡

    Love the brand!

    Really dries fast. Great for Hi king.

    Excellent. Wash and wear - dries overnight. This has become my new travel basic.
