Nice rash guard
I plan to spend a lot of time with my kids at the pool this summer so I wanted a rash guard for a little more sun protection since it is such a pain to put sunscreen on my back. Based on the other review I decided to try a medium instead of my usual small and am glad I did. I have a 37" chest but am small elsewhere; this would have been too tight in a small and the medium is still fitted through the body. I like that this rash guard is a little longer and touches the top of my swimsuit bottoms as I feel it is more flattering this way. I ordered the black since it will go with any swimsuit I own.

Cute and classy shorts
I need a pair of black shorts for summer and have been looking at these for a year so decided to give them a try. I ordered size 2. They are a bit loose in the waist even accounting for the fact they are meant to sit low, but I think a 0 would have been too snug for my 36" hips. The 2 was maybe even slightly snug in this area but since they have spandex I very gently stretched them and they loosened up a bit. They are very flattering and make me look tiny. They are not as loose around the legs for me as they are on the model but my legs are on the muscular side. Also they are sewn together at the leg opening so they stay together when I sit--I was not expecting this but am pleased anyway.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Heavily distressed
I ordered a 25 and 26 to try, and I think either would have worked for me. Both sizes were loose in the waist area but I plan to wear these with a belt. The 25 or even a 24 might have been better if I wanted the waist to fit more closely, but the looseness suits this style. I ultimately decided to keep the 26 mainly because the 25s were too heavily shredded, as in they had giant holes torn all the way through, with flaps of string hanging off. I own a pair of the Mila shorts in size 25 and usually wear a 25 or 26, but in boyfriend styles I usually prefer the 26. For reference I have 36" hips.

Splendid makes the best tees
I own several of the very light jersey tees but wanted a grey one and that style does not come in grey. I'm usually a medium in Splendid (small in most other tees) and ordered a medium and it fits like my other Splendids. It is fairly loose in the body but still flattering, and I find size small in this brand to be a little tight in the shoulder area and chest. This one did not disappoint and is very soft.

Nice sandals but a little high
I ordered these in both 38 and 38.5. I am usually an 8.5 in shoes and an 8 in sandals, and I own a pair of the Harrow booties in size 39, but those run small. These are more true to size and I put on the 38s and did not bother trying the other pair since they fit great. This shoe has a higher heel than my Harrows though and I was hoping it would be about the same--but the heel is more like 4 inches. They are still pretty comfortable though but I haven't been able to wear them out yet so I'm not sure how they will be with an extended wear, but they are very cool looking and edgy so I plan to keep them anyway. The panel in front kind of stands away from the ankle but I think that helps with the look as it makes them more boot-like. They appear to be excellent quality too which I expected after owning my Harrows.

Nice belt but a little expensive
I ordered both an xs and an s in this belt, and decided to keep the xs. There are so many holes both sizes fit, I just preferred the look of the shorter tail. It is a distressed looking belt as stated by another reviewer but this is what I needed for my boyfriend jeans. My only complaint is it's a little expensive for the quality but I haven't found anything I like better and it helps to get it on sale.

Beautiful color
I ordered the Pinot color in size 25 and 26, and decided to keep the 25. The color is gorgeous. It registers darker in person and is more of a purple eggplant color. I thought it looked less brown than the picture. Both sizes fit well, but the 25 was tighter feeling and looked smoother. I thought as they stretched I would be better off with the 25. I am 5'3" and most jeans are very long on me, these were only slightly long and the bunching looks nice, so I don't have to tuck them under. They should be great for a night out!

Great reasonably priced bag
I have this bag in green and it is over three years old and it still looks almost new. It has held up beautifully. I get tons of compliments on this bag, but that's probably due to the lovely green color. I agree it is great for smaller women because it holds a lot but is not an overwhelming size on the body. It is a fantastic deal for the price. I leave the cross body strap on all the time because I like the look of the hanging strap and extra bling from the hardware. This is a workhorse of an everyday bag.

Nice but not sure about the pop top
These gloves fit me perfectly but I wear a medium in women's gloves. I bought them to go with the matching beanie. I'm just not 100% sure I like the look of the pop top flap. They are perfectly nice though. I agree they will not be great for the coldest days but I expected that. I'm still on the fence on these but am leaning towards keeping them.

Not so good for me
I am at the bottom end of the size range for small on the Spanx website, and for some reason they don't provide a size range for xs, so I ordered both. I am in fairly good shape so I just wanted a little smoothing. Both sizes were very difficult to get on and had no open gusset so going to the bathroom would be tough. Also, for some reason this product actually thickened my waistline judging from how my belt fit, I think because it pushed flesh from other parts to the waist. The small was probably better for me since the xs rolled at the top-- but my rib cage flares slightly at the bottom. I really did not think this flattered me since I'm not willing to sacrifice my waistline for a slightly flatter stomach. I may try a non-high-waisted shaper instead.
