Style. This is a new try for me.
Molly G on May 28, 2015
Chose this because the black one I ordered in January doesn't work under light colored work clothes--love it. Had ordered medium and decided to go with the large. I like the tips from other customers about sizing up and using 20 minutes in the dryer if you want a snugger fit. That's the good thing about wool--it's very forgiving.

Like wool for warm, hot, and, cold weather. Have felt IBEX products before and generally try to order when everyone is out of my size! Do note that tends to run smaller and order Medium instead.

Most comfortable bra ever, it does not dig into my shoulders like the Patagonia bra, dries quickly and fits well. Don't expect too much support if you are big chested. This works better for small chested women.

best bra ever. period. (for my small bust)

I was looking for a bra without padding or cups
Holly H on May 9, 2015
I like the smaller profile (vs the bralette). I can wear these a few times w/o having to wash. It is very difficult to find nice wool bras that aren't huge. The color is great for light summer clothing..

Comfortable and nice color

Very comfy around the house and sleeping bra, girly too!

looks nice

It does what I want it to do without any extra padding or wires.
Caroline R on Apr 19, 2015
It's a great bra! Very light padding to prevent nipples showing would be a great addition.

I would like to see this in a very pale palette (birch). Also could you please please please make these bras with internal cup pockets to allow for pads/inserts? I would switch over to these completely; the lack of padding limits their use as I can't wear them as an everyday item under a light top.
A shopper on Apr 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: the sand dollar color is a light tan almost beige color. As for the padding, I have some removable pads that I use when I need to. Not as good as a pocket but still works ok. I love this bra. My 2 daughters and I wear them all the time. I also like the criss cross option.
When will the sand dollar color in medium be in stock?
Pam B on May 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello the Balance Light Bra in sand dollar will be back in stock this Fall/Winter.
Can you machine wash this bra?
ErinMarie on May 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I machine wash my woollen bras but I have a Miele washer with a woolen/hand wash cycle which can wash a rose without damaging it. If I didn't have a good quality machine that could be trusted to treat clothes with care, I would take the extra few minute to soak my bras in eucalan wool wash or similar (sonnet?). It takes no time at all. Also, I only ever hang my bras to dry - if one was accidentally popped in a dryer it wouldn't wreck it, but would likely shorten its life!
you say they run small, how small are you talking?
caitlin q on Apr 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Usually I'd order medium, but I have to have large. (I can get the medium on, but it's too tight to wear.) Large is still on the tighter side at first, but is perfectly comfortable over time. If you're size small I might still suggest trying large. If you're 'large' you can't wear these.
if I am a size 34B what size do I need?
A shopper on Apr 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I also wear a size 34B. I tried bralette small and it was really too small for me. Then I tried medium in the Bralette and also in the Balance Light Bra. I kept the Bralette and bought some more. They are so comfortable and they fit well for me. The Balance Light Bra does not have the same cut. However I would say that size medium would be better if you wear a size 34B.

The best!
I highly recommend this bra! It is comfortable, well-made and provides light support without compression. It has become a staple in my wardrobe. At first I wondered about the sand dollar color but now appreciate it for its flesh-toned shade. The sea glass is looking pretty good to me as well...definitely a future purchase! Order up, for sure; I usually wear a small but love the medium. Thanks, Ibex, well done!

Perfect everyday, functional bra
COMFORTABLE:
This bra is so comfortable with the light fabric and without the underwire. It gives you enough support to feel confident that you won't get saggy triangle-boob, but not so much so that you feel smushed like in a sports bra. You could definitely wear this bra for low-impact exercise.

VERSATILE:
The v-neck cut in front is perfect and you can actually wear pretty low-cut tops. You can even unhook the straps in back to make it a cross-back bra for more support or have regular straps.

GREAT FIT:
The fit is snug for support. I am a 32-C and got a Small. It is a great fit. I would recommend a size up from normal.

I recommend this bra to every woman who wants a comfortable and versatile everyday bra.
