I love this!

I finally stepped out of my comfort zone by wearing this crop. It is so hot in Texas, I had to get something with less fabric. I did size up just to help with my comfort level.

Summer Essential!

The basic bird crop is amazing. I've never had the guts to run in a crop or sports bra before but the basic bird crop is the perfect length (I am 5'2") that I didn't feel insanely self conscious in it. Also it's super comfy and goes over my flyout bra which is a must because that's where my phone goes! Doesn't chafe on longer runs. 10/10 highly recommend! Note that it is NOT a bra. You will probably need something underneath. The size 6 (my size in O shirts) fit perfectly over my size 8 flyout bra (36C for reference).

Perfect race crop

I love the simplicity of this crop for racing. It’s on the shorter side for crop length but still has enough room to comfortably fit a race bib. The racerback silhouette is super comfortable and makes for zero rubbing and maximum mobility. I’ll be grabbing this top for races and workouts all summer long.

Unicorn top

This is some kind of unicorn top for running, I swear. All other cropped tops I've tried have built-in "bras" that are pretty much a joke when it comes to the needs of running - the bras have terrible support, the fit is awful, fabric sucks. But this top checks everything for me!! They are light weight and you don't even notice them over your normal favorite (high impact support!) sports bra. It's not supposed to be skin-tight (which I really appreciate, as that's just too constricting over an already tight fit sports bra) so it actually moves with you. The fit is perfect and hits at just the right spot without digging in and never rides up. I bought in three colors and I'm so glad I did, this will be my go-to running top for outdoor hot/humid summer runs and treadmill training. For reference I'm 5'9 ~130lbs and A/B cup and size 2 fit perfect
