I was looking for a very thin, silk top to wear while I'm riding my bike in summer. It gets pretty warm here, but I am really hesitant to ride without long sleeves and pants because if I fall, I'd rather the shirt take the road rash than my skin! It also helps a bit with reducing sunburn, but not a whole lot. Silk is a very strong, natural fiber that breathes and wicks sweat well. I don't like to wear synthetic fibers and they tend to get very hot. I ordered the bright pink color to aid in visibility on the road. This shirt was perfect. I wear a sports bra underneath, so it really doesn't matter if it's a bit sheer. I will probably buy more to wear in winter for layering. Yes, it was a little pricey, but it's silk!
