This top is cute, but in my opinion, prAna makes tops that are much more functional (and flattering). I am a 36C, and this top squashed me down into a major pancake boob look. Normally, I'd be okay with that if the top were functional, but unfortunately, it is not supportive enough for even a yin meditative class, much less a more vigorous practice. It's also super snug in the waist/body; I usually wear size 4-6 or small in prAna, and this shows every lump and bump even in size M.

If you're a B cup or under and maybe a little less muscular up top, this may be a a better choice for you. But if you've got Cs or more muscle mass, I'd recommend the Quinn or the Kaley tunic instead.

Gotta be honest--I had read a lot of great things about the CR-X, but I was way skeptical. But the sale price was only a bit more than what a pair of Under Armour winter tights might cost, so I thought, what the heck. I ran in them once, and all my skepticism vanished after the first mile. This is a really impressive piece of technical running equipment. I do a lot of hill running, and I could feel the difference the added support in the calves made uphill and in the quads downhill. Even on a flat road, my legs felt light, lean, and well-supported. After one run, they were my favorite tights. One small caveat: the crotch is a tiny bit long, and I usually have to stop every 5 miles or so to readjust and make sure everything is in the right place. But overall, this is a really exceptional piece of running gear and I would highly recommend it, especially for long-distance runners.
