How Do I Determine My Size?

We recommend a general body measurement guide to determine your size in Ibex clothing. This sizing chart is not garment specific, but in fact a body measurement chart. Here are some helpful hints when measuring:

Bust/Chest: relax arms at sides, keeping the tape parallel to the floor, measure the fullest part of your bust/chest
Waist: keeping the measuring tape comfortably loose, measure around your natural waistline
Hips: standing with heels together, keep the tape straight and parallel to the floor, measure around the fullest part of hips
Sleeve Length: a 3-point measurement, standing with arms relaxed and slightly bent at sides, measure from the base of the neck to the shoulder and then from the shoulder to the wrist bone, add together measurements
Form-fit: garment designed to fit snug to the body throughout
Semi-fit: garment will be contoured to the body
Regular-fit: garment will not be slim, but also not oversized
Relaxed-fit: garment drapes loosely on body

Great winter top
cynthia j on May 18, 2016
The light 17.5 is the perfect long sleeve to wear over my t-shirts when I hike. It's durable, washes easily in cold water, and an all time favorite for comfort.

I needed a wool shirt to wear under sweaters. I love this color and it is very soft and warm, even when I sweat.

was on sale and loved the orange color. it is one size larger than what I usually order but that makes it loose and comfortable in the summer.

persis h on May 15, 2015
This winter I did quite a bit of travel to cold climes and I needed a long sleeve T that would work as both an outer and under layer. I thought the seaming might be a bit annoying, but it was not even noticeable. Nice top, easy to wear and love. Washes and wears well, The coral color is very versatile for me.
Beth S on May 8, 2015
Nice light weight; I love it, its my favorite base (winter) or solo (spring) layer, I wish there were more colors.
Sarah M on Apr 26, 2015
This is great to dress up or down. The color is beautiful. Great for hiking and dining out.
Mary O on Apr 20, 2015
An especially flattering cut for both my mother and myself. We hope to see more of these in the future.

everyone needs one!
I bought this for my sister because she kept wearing mine! It's a perfect weight for going on a run or wearing on a hike. Actually, you can wear this shirt all the time if you wanted! I purchased the coral color--it turned out to be more of a pink coral than what is shown in the picture. I'm confident you'll love your purchase... and you really can't beat the sale price!

Love this Shirt
I wore this shirt every day for a week on a spring sailing trip in Maine. It is warm, quick drying, stays smelling sweet, I was comfortable and looked great. What more can one ask for?

Love this shirt!
I bought the Grey Heather in Medium and it fits perfect. I am 5'2" and larger busted so this size is fitted, yet loose enough to be completely comfortable and I love the slightly longer sleeve length of this shirt. I own many pieces of marino wool clothing by Ibex and Icebreaker and this is my new favorite! It is soft, lightweight and perfect to wear alone or layer. LOVE!

One of my favorite Ibex products
I have this shirt in black, and it gets more wear than just about any other shirt in my wardrobe. I travel a lot for my work as a university researcher (mainly to Europe), and I find this shirt to be indispensable. It dresses up under a blazer, down with jeans; it is cut trim enough to look professional but not cut so slim that it reveals my middle-aged tummy bulges; I can wear it every day and n

Simply the best!
I bought this top last year and took it to Mammoth with me on a family vacation in early September. The weather is similar in Bend with chilly nights and gorgeous days and I simply loved it! It is so cute with a pair of jeans. And a pair of shorts or skirt for that matter. Great to layer with a vest or over a tank top on brisk mornings. It's lightweight but warm and fits great. Hint to Ibex...char

Love it!
I wear this shirt as often as I can! It's comfy and the fit is great! I had originally bought the green shirt to run in a St. Patty's day race, but opted not to wear it because it didn't want the velcro on my pack to damage it. Now, I wear it to work and around the house. I've only had to wash it a couple times and so far it's held up well! Very happy with the shirt! I just wish I had more m

Love this shirt1
I just returned from a trip to Tucson and wore this shirt on the plane; it is such a cozy, comfortable lightweight shirt.It was great over a t-shirt hiking in the mountains in the early mornings. I wear this shirt more than any other shirt I own. I have it in three colors, and I hope Ibex adds more colors.

Petty and light!
This has been the perfect lightweight top for a not very warm northwest summer. It tucks into my bag for a quick change when activities extend into the cooler hours and has saved me from a few chilly evenings. Great for early morning bike rides to work before the sun warms the day. The horizontal front seam took some getting used to. Love the length in the arms!

versatile shirt
