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

Still need help determining your size? Call 800.773.9647 or email us at info@ibex.com for specific garment measurements.

This is my favorite bra. It's the only one I wear. Besides the no longer available cami's that used to have a shelf bra included. Perfectly comfortable, breathable, and they perform.

Trying a new bra....love wool.
Mary H on Apr 5, 2016
great bralette-this is my third- light, supportive for everyday and strolling activities. takes a fair amount of abuse too, re-washing and wearing! i wear a size smaller for extra support..
Johanna G on Mar 29, 2016
I like that it's light weight and non-binding...and it offers a bit of a separation.
Holly D on Mar 22, 2016
I have the light bra and the sports bra from Ibex, and this looks like a great midsize version. Both of the other bras are my most comfortable bras, though the light bra is the most comfortable (but offers less support.) I'm hoping this one will be in between them on support.
Gretchen S on Mar 20, 2016
For comfort. Have two others like this in different colors.
Sybilla K on Mar 20, 2016
I chose this bra because I was looking for a light wool option to wear hiking all of the time.
Anna H on Mar 14, 2016
Straps can be adjusted to over the shoulders.
Rene N on Mar 5, 2016
For long distance cycling I like to wear a sweat wicking bra.
Rosemary P on Mar 2, 2016
This is replacing the exact same bra that I purchased four years ago and wore nearly every day until the straps gave out. I'll be replacing the straps when I have time (as the fabric is still great), but in the meantime I need this.

Great product
Eva S on Jan 26, 2016
Super comfortable. I'm a 36B. 5"7, 144# and ordered a medium- which fits perfectly. These are great for sweaty workouts and for every day. I now have 4 in different colors and prefer them to regular bras when I can get away with it (underwire are nice for shaping, but that is about it!!).
Amy L on Jan 26, 2016
because you can change the steps from racer back to traditional bra-strapping.

Tatiana E on Jan 14, 2016
Most comfortable bra ever! Keeps everything in place and breathes. I wore this on a trip to Europe with no access to laundry and it stayed odor-free and retained its shape.
Janet G on Jan 13, 2016
This is the most comfortable bra ever!
Annmarie M on Jan 10, 2016
I bought this for hot yoga. Works beautifully and is easy to get out of when it's all wet.
Linda R on Jan 9, 2016
I have the black one and love it. It is a little tight with the straps crossed in the back, so for every day wear, I like to have the straps not crossed. Very comfortable and doesn't smell!

Merlyn O on Dec 26, 2015
Great bra for work. Very comfortable.
gia k on Dec 16, 2015
I have it in several colors. It is light and comfortable and has convertible straps. The tan color was always unavailable so when I saw it today, I bought it to wear under white shirts.

Wanted a lightweight wool bra; I wouldn't recommend this one. The Balance Sport Bra is much better
Paula D on Dec 3, 2015
My wife has wanted this for years.
Clinton E on Dec 2, 2015
I love this bra! This will be my fourth one. So comfy and great. I am smaller in the chest, A - Bish, and this works great for yoga and everyday wear. Highly recommend!
Lillian H on Dec 1, 2015
It looks like it may be good and I need a new bra.

Love wool bras. they don't smell. Many of the non-wool bras smell after a couple years even after a lot of washing....
Susie H on Nov 25, 2015
Currently own two of these and they are awesome for winter outdoor activities like skiing and hiking.
Guest S on Nov 23, 2015
These are my favorite bras. They just feel good. I wear a medium and I'm about a 35 b.

are they padded?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Our Balance Bralette does not have padded or removable cups.
I am a 32D if have a very small rib cage and it is hard to find bras that fit me bc my breasts are larger, will this fit me?
lorena b on Jul 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, this may not be the best for a D cup, it's pretty form fitting and recommended for A and B cups in low/medium impact activities. Thanks.
what type of closure does the bra have?
A shopper on Apr 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is no closure. You slip the bra over your head. This is actually not a struggle as it might have been with other products. Also, THERE ARE NO SEAMS. This is a luxuriously comfortable bra. Feels like it is part of you. You also can change the straps to go straight over your shoulders instead of crossing if you like.
Can this bra be worn with a tshirt?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, yes, this can be worn with a tshirt - the straps are convertible.
This bra provides light support.
Thanks!
Will a medium fit a 36 A/B? Or should I order a Large?
A shopper on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello yes a medium will fit a your size. Thanks.
Is the main body of the bra wool or is the spandex and nylon all throughout the whole of the fabric? or is it just in the trim details?
lorena b on Jul 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello yes the main body of the bra is wool. It is 72 % wool 22% nylon & 6% spandex this is all combined together. Thanks

Super comfy
This is my first merino bra after many other Ibex products. I love this bra, comfortable and supportive enough for every day. I am a 36C in normal bra sizes and the medium fits well.

The best bra ever
I bought this while I was working a forestry job. I was sweating all day, every day and needed unrestricted movement in my upper body. This bra was so comfortable, i barely noticed i was wearing one except that everything was staying in place... I have small breasts, so I can't speak for other body types. however, I have very large shoulders and rib cage. Usually it's difficult to find something that fits well and looks good. I went back the next week and bought brief shorts!

Worth the money
Was looking for something to wear at night while on call for EMS (wanted to be semi-dressed when jumping out of bed, we are volunteers). This Bralette is double layer, pull over your head style (no hooks to dig in), straps can be worn straight or cross over in back. I usually wear a 36A so cannot speak for anybody larger but it is very comfortable and does not make me sweaty like the sportsbras do. Also intend to wear this hiking.

Comfortable bra
Best bra, great for every day wear, love that the straps can be changed to either straight or crossed. Really comfortable.

My favorite casual bra
This is my third Ibex bralette. The first two lasted about three years worn daily in rotation before the elastic gave out. The wool fabric is still beautiful and I'll replace the elastic eventually. I wear them every day. It's not itchy, doesn't get damp (like cotton), doesn't get stinky (like synthetics) is supportive and comfortable. It's just perfect. I wish it came in more dark colors. I have oxblood and black. Would love to see it in navy, hunter, eggplant, chocolate, etc.

So comfortable!
This bralette is uber comfortable. However, it is not for high impact activities, or if you want to define/lift. Also, there is no padding, so I wear this with a t-shirt and sweater. If you just wear a t-shirt, it would require padding.

Great for exercising.
I am a 34B and the bralette works great for workouts. I actually wear the straps straight instead of crossed. I find it more comfortable that way. I am 5"4", 124 pounds and I use a medium.

I really like this bralette. Comfortable wool is breathable and stretchy enough to provide support. The only thing I'd change are the metal strap adjusters on the back.

Go up a size
I normally wear a small in ibex bras but have to exchange this for a medium. If you're a 34 a-b, save yourself some time and order a medium.

Nice alternative bra, good quality
This bra is a bit too small and snug for me so I have to wash it by hand to keep from shrinking. The material is nice and this is a comfortable alternative to a structured bra. Very comfortable. Light much support and not good for any exercise but yoga.
