warm & light; cozy silk feel

Verified Buyer Reviewed by the "mixmaster" shopper from Rutland, VT on Wednesday, November 3, 2010
This is the 3rd (4th?)Terramar top I've bought (as well as 2-3 bottoms)so something must be great! I buy a size larger, as it will shrink in the laundry - even following cool/warm, delicate wash,and line dry. Best niche use is for warmth under delicate/light wt. blouses & other tops. Hook & loop fasteners snag, so watch out... Silk doesn't seem to wick as well as some new synthetics, so I've found the Terramar silk items better for non (or lite)-aerobic pursuits.
This top is NOT to be confused w/ other heavier silk underwear found in some main-line outdoor clothing stores that on-line may appear the same. (I found this out by ordering the "larger" size for shrinkage, and they didn't shrink; plus were heavier wt.) Both products have their uses, but the Terramar silk underwear is the BEST for under dressy or light-wt. items. That's why I keep coming back.
