Cuddl Duds. They're not thermal, kind of smooth and they fit well under your clothing.

I love Cuddl Duds too. I got some similar from Target for cheaper...or else I wait for a sale on them. I wear them every day once the temp drops into the 40's. I feel naked without them and don't seem to need anything heavier when the temp plunges. :)

Under Armor is by leaps and bounds the best I've worn. It's what law enforcement and other professionals wear. It's expensive, but I have one shirt I've had for 3 years that has gotten LOTS of wear and it's still in tip top condition. They are well made and you can find them in several thicknesses. www.galls.com or www.rei.com carries them as do many gun stores that also sell professional accessories and hunting gear.

The hated Walmart sells a silky kind like Cuddl Duds. Very warm and only about $7 a piece.

I just got a set of merino wool long underwear from Lands End. I love them! I keep my house cold all winter and if I don't have good long underwear I freeze. These are so soft, snuggly and warm.

I live in the cold northeast and really need warm clothing. My second choice would be Duofold wool and cotton two layer underwear.

Yes, these fit well under clothing and I like them to sleep in, too. You can easily turn over and not get stuck to the flannel sheets. :D But for the arctic weather I have to go with the merino wool from Lands End that freelove just mentioned. I will ALWAYS spend more for wool clothing. You get what you pay for.

I need a thermal type shirt to wear under my heavyweight polo workshirt for auctions. Where do I find these CuddleDuds?

Does the merino wool feel itchy? I have sensitive skin and have avoided wool but I too am needing some good ones for outside wear.

And here I have been wearing men's long johns for 20 years. Actually I don't like the womens thermals. Legs are too short and there is too much fabric on the belly part, and the waist is too high.

I'm a larger sized gal amd always wore my DH's extra long longjohns.

Last year I made a change that I think I will contiue this year.

I wore my flannel pajama bottoms under my jeans with Carrhart snowpants over all.
Those flannel p'j' bottoms kept me warmer than longjohn's ever have.

I have some from Cabela's that I like. I think they are the medium weight. They aren't too bulky and the legs are fairly long. My only complaint is the calves are somewhat tight. I have legs like tree trunks though so they would be fine for most!

might try www.wintersilks.com, especially the clearance section where the markdowns are. 'course, i live in TX, so it doesn't get super cold. but even the very light silk mock-neck under a shirt gives me a whole lot more warmth.
