I like the fit of this tank. I can wear a regular bra underneath and the light gray color pairs well with colorful shorts and even in my "gravel" colored Tess shorts from Prana. My only issue, and this could just be the color I chose, is that it shows sweat extremely well. I get very sweaty in the summer. If you don't sweat than the light gray may work for you. Once returning to air conditioning the shirt dried fast. I may buy a different color since I like the shirt a lot. The material is very soft and it breathes well when I wore it sight seeing in Texas this summer. Medium fit me well, I am 145lbs, bra size 34D, 5'3".

I was looking for a lightweight tank for summer adventures that could also double as a workout top for runs, yoga, weights, etc. and this was the ticket! I like that it's loose around the tummy area so air can cool me down. The top fits well and the racer back for the most part covers my sports bra.

These shorts are a comfy, modest short to wear after work and on weekends for just hanging out, garden chores and for easy walks with the dog. My weight fluctuates from 140-150 lbs throughout the year. When 140lbs I wear a 4 and when 150lbs I wear a 6 from Prana. I bought the size 6, 5 inch inseam and they are perfect. I think on my lower weight they will still be fine, maybe a little loose but that's ok with me. I line-dry my clothes and have noticed these shorts dry much faster than my denim shorts so I think they will make good hiking shorts, although not a "quick-dry" clingy material. The back pocket is big enough for my iPhone 7 to slip in when roaming around the house and on dog walks. I purchased the putty gray color and it coordinates well with my summery bright colored tops.

The shoe felt comfortable and looked tough. I ordered up a half size to a 7 like suggested but my ankle constantly slipped. I tried to tighten the laces and wear thicker socks but my toes would go numb and my ankle still slipped. I need a well fitting shoe for an upcoming Moab, Utah trip but looks like I'll have to wear my worn out trail shoes this time. :/ I had a similar pair of Vasques that I bought in 2014 that were amazing - and I wore a 6.5 in them, maybe I should have stuck with my regular size.

This was my first merino baselayer purchase. The shirt is soft and looks great on its own or pulled over a tee (I have the teal color). The medium fit great (I am 5'3" 135-140lbs, 34D). I originally bought the shirt for a 3 night backpacking trip to the Maroon Bells in CO, where the weather was ranging from 75 down to 35. This shirt was great and I rarely took it off. Didn't hold any odors and a tomato sauce stain came right out when I washed it at home. I wear the shirt to work, while shopping or just at the house. I love this shirt and will purchase another color in the future!

I have a Lole "rio" bikini bottom I bought a few years ago that I love but I was looking for a bottom that covered me a little more. This was the ticket! My only complaint is that it squeezes my mini muffin top just a tad - but that also means it stays in place while swimming and rock sliding. I have a small/flat bottom and wear jean/short sizes 4-6 and the medium fits great.

I'm pretty easy to please with clothing as long as everything fits. I knew Prana pants run a little small from a past purchase so getting a 4 was spot on with fit for my body. The zippers don't bother me like the other reviewers; I can feel them but they don't scratch or irritate me. My iphone 6 fits great in the cargo pocket for quick pictures on the trail. The leg is wide enough that I didn't have to take off my boots to remove the bottom part of the pants when I got hot. I would have preferred the short length but the regular worked out fine and didn't get caught under my shoes. They are super comfy; I can wear them to work, while doing yard-work and hiking!
