Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 125 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I'm a 29" band size with a 33" chest (32D). I got this bra initially in small and had to return since my breasts were falling out the sides. The Medium fits perfectly.

You can read other reviews for details as I have the same complaints:
straps are uncomfortable
not anything special about the style or cut
not especially supportive but will do the job for smaller breasts

Pros:
decent find for a rare wool bra
sea glass color is pretty

I got this for my husband who is very difficult to shop for. He's tall and skinny (chest: 39" inseam from armpit to end of shirt: 19") and has only just realized that he can find slim cut clothes instead of resorting to something shapeless that would usually only fit someone his height.
Now he demands the trimmest of trim fits.
I got him this shirt in Medium. It looked like a second skin. Even the shoulders were not matching up.
We ended up returning it for a Large. At that size, it still sits close to his body, but not skin tight. He loves it.
We're hoping he can wear this casually and for some moderate activity.

I wear a size 32D bra (band size: 29" cup: 33"). I have to have the straps fully extended to avoid ride up when the straps are in the crossback form. While the material is thinner than most bras (no padding) it can effectively hide nipples, and support smaller breasts, enough as it would in a wired unlined bra.
I wanted a bra to wear casually that could withstand getting soaked with sweat or absorbing body odor and that was versatile enough for many different styles; this seems it will do the job with it's straps and v neck.
The only real faults I can find are that I would've liked a little more padding (maybe a little more support with this), and slightly thicker straps. The straps are just elastic and can dig into the shoulders after a few hours.
The options for wool bras are few, and while not perfect, this seems to be one of the best available so I will be keeping it. Hopefully future versions will improve upon the straps.

NOTE: don't go by the size chart for chest measurements. According to that I would wear a XS. I got a small previously for the non vneck style and my breasts were popping out the sides. Especially for this style, you don't want a boob bump under tight shirts so I would either be prepared to try/return multiple sizes as I did, or read reviews for fit examples!
