I own several camisoles by Calida, so I just took the labels off and put on one of the two I just purchased and I discovered that it was not the right fit for me. It is too bulky around the chest and does not look nice.

This is my least-favorite Calida items. When I ordered this I did not realize that it had a shelf bra. I don't think this is reflected in the product description, and I would not have ordered it if I had known because they usually don't work for me. After I received the item, I noticed some of the reviewers had mentioned this--I usually read reviews but I guess I felt comfortable enough with the size and quality of the brand, that I just skimmed a couple of them. Darn! The shelf bra just doesn't seem to be sized proportionally to the garment...if it was deeper, it would probably be fine, but as it is, it just doesn't work for me, either the band is uncomfortably high and rides up or if the band is positioned right, the neckline is pulled down very low, revealing everything I was trying to conceal! Maybe the fit would be okay for A or B cup sizes, but C or larger will likely have the same issue I did....For this reason I gave it 3 stars. Otherwise it is a lovely, soft and well made garment. I have worn it for sleeping--light and cool for summer, but I would much rather be able to use it as a layering piece, so I think I will try to remove the shelf bra and finish the cut edge--hope I don't ruin it!! I did order one size down, probably could have gone down two sizes....

Calida is a great brand. Highly recommended. For the base layer, the items run large, so order based on how tight you want the fit. For example, a M would be an L or XL elsewhere, which is fine, but it fine if you prefer a looser fit.
Best Uses: base layer
Describe Yourself: Comfort-oriented
Pros: Figure Flattering, Quality Materials, Soft, Stylish, Versatile, Washes Well

this is nice camy type under layer. i am average build 5"5" 36B and I ordered the small as suggested by other reviews and the fit is perfect. It is very soft and well constructed. the length is long enough to tuck in but not too long to leave out.
