Love Icebreaker, but buy 1 size larger

I have many of these awesome tops. I use them for backpacking, as everyday base layers in the winter, and even alone in the transitional months. As base layers, these are meant to be form-fitting. However, due the nature of natural wool, these do shrink a bit over time, even when washed in cold and line-dried. Once on the body, they loosen up a bit and don't feel so tight, but I personally don't care for very tight clothes, especially around my armpits. (BTW, no seam under the armpit! Really nice!). I have always bought size Medium (I am 5' 7" 150 pounds, 36-C), but decided to buy size Large this time. I am VERY happy with the large, as it fits well without being too tight anywhere. It's been washed twice ans still fits great.
