love these!!
I vary between a 6.5 and 7 but usually find that I almost always buy 6.5 in any kind of sandal (you can get away with smaller fits in sandals in my opinion). I bought the 6 and find that it fits perfectly. It's on the border of being too small but I can just make it work. I definitely wouldn't want the 7 because I think smaller is always more flattering than even a little too big. I do have narrow feet though. This sandal is very narrow and I can't imagine anyone with wider feet wearing it, mine almost even go over the edges. In terms of appearance these are adorable. My housemate and coworkers loved them. They look expensive despite being rubber and they are incredibly comfortable. I'm definitely going to be ordering more of these! Color is exactly as appears and is the perfect neutral.

Stretches out, Just Meh
Usually FP seamless pieces run super tight and small. i was happy to see that this piece was not as tight as most, however, after a day of wear it stretches out and becomes loose especially on the straps (which is not good for bra cover). I always wear the XS/S and am a 32D in VS bras. This is just not that great of a tank. I was hoping to use it as a work staple and it's good to tuck under pants and skirts but it does roll up a little. Overall not that pleased, wouldn't buy more. I will note that it's not see-through though which is a win!

Different than expected but still good
I'm about 5'2, 105 pounds petite but athletic and I bought the P. I will admit this is bordering on too small like other reviewers but I still would not have sized up to the S. The waist and shoulders are tighter than I'd like but still doable.The biggest surprise for me was the fabric-it's not as opaque and rich as I'd hoped. It's more like a heavy cotton feel and it attracts a lot of lint. It already had lint on it when I took it out of the package! Regardless this is a super classy, well-fitted classic LBD. I think it's perfect for corporate or interview and is a great transitional piece as well. For my height it hit me at the perfect length and I really love the asymmetrical hem. Hopefully there is no riding up but didn't seem like there would be. I got it at a good sale price but I would not have paid full for it. Overall I'm satisfied but not in love.

can't go without these!
I absolutely love these. I have four pairs and I have worn the tans ones down to death-lol. The color is really flattering on medium tone skin and looks great in the summer. It's an awesome neutral so it goes with everything too. I have spread the word about these to all of my friends/family-I love them that much! They are true to size but fit narrower feet best. I am most always a 7 and got these in a 7. They look like they were made for me!

good basic
I have this in black and primarily wear it as a dress and not a slip. I haven't had the riding up problem a lot of people talk about and I think that it really comes down to body shape with this dress regarding that. Free People clothing in general tends to work either completely for or against certain body types. I'm petite with curves, 5'1 100 pounds (wearing XS/S) and I find it works really well for me. This is a good staple, fabric is thick, smooth and comfortable. With the darker colors you can easily get away with it as a dress, especially if you are short. The price is great too!

not as good as the Eddie
Nope. I had big expectations for this one because I thought it would be like the Eddie, only with the obnoxious logo emblem (which I admittedly wanted!). I have 3 pairs of the Eddie which I absolutely adore (in size 7, my usual size). These run bigger than the Eddie and I can tell that the half size down would be too small. Further, the leather is much harder on these and not nearly as soft as the Eddie. I also don't think the elastic band around it is attractive either. The Eddie is nice because it doesn't look bulky on the foot and I feel these do (for a petite girl at least). The 225 price tag is also just absurd. Some of my Eddies are falling apart already but I admittedly wear them everywhere. Tory, stick a logo on the Eddie, it would make a lot of people happy! I'll stick with that model from now on.

Deep V means DEEP
The V neck of this shirt is so intense that it almost leaves my entire collar bone exposed. The problem with it for me is that not only is the V too deep where it's showing all the goods but that it's so wide it barely covers me (unlike the model). For the price of this shirt and how it's cut it wasn't worth it at all to me. This shirt is probably better on someone who isn't as petite.

It is what it is
I'm 5'1 96 pounds and I ordered the XS in Platinum. The color is a nice light gray and the material is extremely soft and comfortable. I can get away with wearing it as a dress because of my height but it's definitely something I would have worn more in college if you catch my drift...As a top it works well but less so as a skirt because it is not as tight to the body when worn that way. I wish it had a shelf bra to keep a strapless supported but it doesn't, it's literally a tube of fabric. It's semi-sheer and at some angles you can see underwear. I'd feel best wearing a long sweater over it if used as a dress. Overall it's a decent staple, but I'm not sure I would purchase another one.

Like my other Siwys better
I have another pair of Hannahs in Blaze (White, same fabric combo) and ordered the same size (24) in this wash. The waist line is definitely a little bigger on these and the legs are also a little looser too. I think I actually need 23s, that, or Siwy runs large in the legs. I wasn't wowed by these and I think this concludes my Siwy love affair. I will say that these do make the butt look good though!

James Perse- the ever Shrinking
I'm 5'2, 105 pounds and always wear a 0 in JP. I got this in a 0 but I must say as of late JP has been running much smaller. There is still a decent amount of stretch in these pieces so I don't mind they are a little tighter-just harder to get on but look amazing once they are! Love the color-it's a very unique blue/gray. As with all these styles I love that you can adjust-make them shorter or longer with the ruching and lower or higher on the neck line (good for work to play transition). I can tell just like every other JP this is going to ride up but whatever-only happens when you walk. As usual massively over-priced but I got it on sale and I always use these as staple pieces that are super versatile. Worth it if you are used to JP. Comfort, class, style, just the right amount of sex appeal!
