The note "this garment fits close to the body and runs small" sounded awesome, so I got an XS for the purpose of climbing. Unfortunately, the XS did not fit to my liking. I am 5'6'', 120lbs, and typically wear XS in most brands. The arms on this shirt were a little long, though manageable. The drop tail hem in back is great, but the front hem is too short. I don't like for my lower belly to be exposed every time I reach up for a climbing hold. The torso is baggy on me. A minor detail that bugs me (maybe I'm OCD) is that the collar front is asymmetric. You can kind of tell in the pictures, but I didn't really notice it until I wore it in front of a mirror. Zipping the pocket closed is a little annoying because you have to hold down the fabric around the zipper to prevent it from getting pulled. Otherwise, the PolarDry material would be great for exercising in cool temperatures. The pit ventilating material extends along the inner side of the arms and down the sides of the torso.

Initially, I was disappointed because the material felt cheap and flimsy. I thought maybe it was just from the recycled polyester so I decided to still give it a chance. I wore the pants to hot yoga once, washed them once (followed the instructions), and gym climbed in them once. The material is already starting to pill, after 2 wears and 1 wash. It is particularly noticeable on the seat and inner thighs. Other than the poor material, the fit and look were fine. I am 5'6'' and wear XS. Turns out this is not an eco-friendly purchase, because I will have to buy new pants pretty soon. Next time I will look for something that would last at least a year.

I love the straps on this top! For prAna tops, I fall between sizes XS and S. I went with XS because I wanted tighter support for my small bust. The rest of the top is very tight, but that is ok because I think boob support is more important. The front covers well, showing almost no cleavage. The straps are comfortable and cute. I use this top for yoga (great for hot or regular temp), climbing, and working out at the gym.

This Prana top is cute and functional. I use it for yoga (hot and regular temps), climbing, pilates, and weight lifting. I don't know if it was my fault or the way it was manufactured, but the seams on the front of the left strap started coming undone. It should be easy to stitch back up. I like that the top is made with recycled polyester. It shows some cleavage, maybe too much for women with large busts. I am a 34B and the XS fits snugly.

I ordered a dark gray XS from SAC. The material was great, sleek and comfortable, but sadly the top did not fit to my liking. My body type is similar to previous poster Janan-- tall, slim, 32B with a narrow waist. While the chest/straps seemed to fit fine with appropriate coverage/support, the mid section was unflatteringly wide to the point of looking baggy, particularly in the back. Functionally the top would have been great, but I returned it because it didn't look cute on me.
