Patagonia Merino 2 Lightweight Crew Top - Women's
Patagonia's Merino 2 Lightweight Crew combines mostly merino with a touch of polyester. The idea is that the merino wool brings natural warmth, temperature regulation, and odor control, and the smidgen of polyester adds durability and strength. Slip the slim-fit Merino 2 on as your baselayer for chilly ski days, and wear this top on its own or under a hoody for fall and spring backpacking.

really like this shirt

I got this somewhere else, but I always read reviews here so I am putting in my 2 cents. The fit: the sleeves are tighter all the way down to the wrist than the IB bodyfit shirts. I am a pretty solid size 8 (5'4", a very hippy 140lbs, 34C) and the medium fits me very nicely. I wear it casually and its a tad tight in the chest compared to what I normally wear but looks cute, I have the burgundy color. The odd gathers at the shoulder/arm don't bug me. I wore it in New Zealand for 3 weeks on and off and it held up well. If it came in a V-neck, I'd get another.
There are better options

First the good - cute color, nice thickness (2) layer. I ordered the medium. I am 5'8" 130 lbs. I always wear medium in patagonia. It was really tight - even for a base layer, too tight. What made me send it back and not get the large was the odd way they gathered the fabric at the armpit area (style is like a baseball jersey). I think it was to look feminine. I thought it was just odd.
