This base layer bottom is thinner than I expected but is warm as merino wool should be. I shall be wearing it every weekend for my long walks. My only reservation is that I am about the same size as the model shown in the picture; I am 34-25-34 while the model is 34-26-34, and I am 5'4" while the model is 5'6". I expected to look like the model when I put it on, but I don't. It is too large on my waist by about 5 inches in circumference. There is also an added piece in between legs, which to me makes it look like men's clothing. Thank God, I can sew so will alter it myself. But this would work better on a person with a 36-30-38 figure. I give four star for the soft buttery merino wool.
I've never had merino wool before because of the price but we needed something warm for some high-altitude hiking. The Minus33 merino wool base layer top fits amazingly well. It is incredibly warm, very comfortable, and really feels nice on the skin, whether sweaty or not. The quality is excellent, the material is comfortably and smoothly fitting - not loose, not tight, and doesn't bind or gap anywhere. The sleeves are plenty long and the fit through the shoulders is good (I'm broad shouldered and this is sometimes problematic). I even slept in it very comfortably. it washes very well and hasn't lost its shape or fit, at least after the initial wash. I'm 5'5 and 130 lbs and the medium fit me perfectly.
I went skiing for 3 days in Jackson Hole, Wyoming (one of the coldest places I know of) in these and I've never been warmer. The are thick but not bulky and so soft! I am 5ft 3in, 120lbs and the small fit me perfectly!
