It is no secret that the world's softest apparel fiber comes from the docile and adorable angora rabbit. Quiet and serene by nature, these animals have been harvested for fiber production for hundreds of years, and their fur is regarded by the wool industry as "crème de la crème" for its soft silky texture and fine insulating properties. Medima has long understood the appeal of angora in the production of thermal underwear. Not only does Medima underwear bear the same celestial softness as the rabbit from whence it came, but hollow angora fibers gently trap th ... Learn more about Medimae body's natural heat.

This product wasn't so bad, except the thick stitching that went down the armpit and cause a huge irritation on my husband's skin. I have contacted Sierra Trading Post for weeks now but I've finally given up all I want to do is return this because while it doesn't fit our needs, it could certainly fit someone elses.

The fabric is like nothing I have ever seen, and I am obsessed with textiles. If you look at the fabric very closely, it is sort of like a rib, or double knit with amazing elasticity. The hand of the fabric is very airy and light. The finishing on the shirt and sleeve hems is part of the knit construction and stunningly neat without any sewing. Just incredible. It also comes beautifully packaged in a lovely box. This would be a great gift and the person would know from the packaging it is very special.
However, I just don't see how I would ever wear it. It is too sheer to wear on it's own, or under things I would unzip and take off. There is no way the pictures of Medima products aren't doctored to hide that they are very transparent. I loved the fabric so much I even tried it with a variety of different cotton camisoles underneath to turn it into a little luxe T-shirt I could wear to work, but the mix of necklines and sheerness looked accidental and strange. If it had a lower neckline I would have kept it as a cami to wear under blouses. The cut coupled with the see through fabric make this garment for very limited use. It can be used for see-through PJs or long underwear only... and never to be seen in public. I can think of so many things I would like made of this fabric, but sadly Medima makes a lot of granny-ish stuff with strange necklines and lace. I am so sad to return this. What a waste of some of the finest knit fabric I have ever touched!! I hope Medima tries out some new designs soon.

First off, I like wearing the undershirt as it is very soft, breathable, and keeps me warm. I primarily wear this under my long sleeve button-up business work shirts as my office is rather cool in the winter and summer. However, the fit on this shirt is less than perfect. I originally ordered a M which I actually tend to wear a S bc I like a tight fit. I LOATHE baggy clothes, even the slightest excess in material near the waste. I am 5'11" , 150 lbs, and have a very lean, athletic build. Once the M shirt arrived, it was obvious that this shirt wasn't going to work. While the torso fit right, the arm length was 4-5" too short, the shoulders were too small, and the armpit seem was too tight and shaped weird. I liked the material so much, and at such a good price, I decided to give them another chance and ordered an XL. This one fit much better in the shoulders to where I can fully extend my arms and back in all directions with out any tightness. The arm length could still be another inch longer though. But whatever. And the shirt is long enough to tuck into your pants, which I was skeptical at first, but now I like it. So there. Would I recommend this shirt?...Only with caution.

I purchased the neck gaiter for myself not my husband because I wanted to try one that has wool. I really now do believe that wool is definitely warmer then the fleece. At first I thought it would be itchy, however it is not. It is the first one I grab when heading outdoors. Try one!!
