Cute bright red hat!
I got the red hat and it is very cute. It fits well, is flattering, and will be very warm with the fleece lining. It's reasonably priced but not made of the most expensive materials. It should be great for days I don't want to do my hair.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

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.

Runs large but cute when sized down
I am normally a 26 and tried the Sheffield wash first, it was too big. This one then came available in a 25 and I actually prefer the moss wash so I gave it a try and it fits perfectly--still slightly loose. They are kind of pricey for what they are and a little shorter in the inner thigh area than I'm used to wearing but I think I can get used to it since they are still flattering. Mine were more distressed than shown in the photo but it's all in the pocket area so nothing shows that shouldn't. I wore them once on the one nice day we've had so far this year and they were very comfortable and still flattering as they wrinkled up.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Runs larger than the v-neck version
I have several of the v-neck very light jersey tees in medium and I love the way they fit. I thought this would fit the same but it doesn't, this one is about the same length in front but longer in back, and it maybe flares out a little at the bottom. I will keep it because I love the mint color and it was on sale, but the v-neck is a little more flattering on my 5'3" body. I usually wear a small but find Splendid tees to fit better across my bust and shoulders in medium (I'm 34d/dd).

Is it a top or a dress?
I am 5'3" and this was too long to be a tunic, too short to be a dress. It is also very low cut so it needs something underneath. It hangs like a sack which I expected since I wanted to wear it with a belt, but there were just too many things wrong with it to keep. The jersey was very soft but this is way too pricey for what it is.

Half size up is fine
I am updating my review after wearing these for a while. I am normally an 8.5 and ordered these in a 39 and 39.5. For reference my foot is a little wide with high arches. I was not sure but decided to keep the 39, which fit better in the length but were tight in the width. I am glad I did as now they have loosened up and are very comfortable. Quality is evident in these shoes. I did want to note that the little rods the straps attach to screw in. One of mine fell off and I just about freaked out until I realized it could be put back together. I was so glad this happened as I took them off so I did not lose the screw. So make sure your screws are tight before wear! These are the most expensive shoes I've ever bought but I am very happy with my purchase, I'm sure they will last a long time.

Almost kept these
These jeans are very lightweight and longer than I thought they would be--there was quite a bit of bunching at the hem for me. I liked the slightly dirty wash. I was a little concerned about the durability of this item since the denim is so thin and distressed. The dealbreaker for me was the fact that there was a flap of fabric hanging off in one of the distressed areas at the top of the pocket. I would try R&B again but maybe a less distressed pair--preferably one a little shorter or one I could hem less obviously.

Good top but color not for me
I ordered this top in a M in truffle, after reading prior reviews. I am currently 8 months pregnant, 34DD, and a M was a good size--it would also work non-pregnant since it is so stretchy. I did not have an issue with the sleeves or length since they scrunch up nicely--and I'm only 5'3". My issue with this top is the color. The truffle is darker in person and just kind of dull and not good for me. I would definitely order this top again in a better color--but right now none of the colors available in medium are appealing to me. It is a little sheer but not bad with a good skintone bra, I'm not sure how this top would be in lighter colors however.

Ordered wrong size...
I was looking to replace another pair of CE boyfriend in size 26 which had fallen apart, and decided to try a 25 since that pair had gotten a little loose on me over time. Unfortunately the 25 was more fitted in the legs than I wanted. For reference, I am normally a 27 in jeans so these do run big. I have a pair of AG boyfriend jeans, size 27, which are more fitted and flattering, but these CEs look better a little looser on me. More boyish body types will probably want to go 2 sizes down, otherwise if you're curvy one size is probably good. The holes on these are not too big which is nice, they are just like the picture. I will probably reorder in 26 next time there is a sale.

cute shorts
These are cute, and fit true to C/E sizing which is a little bigger than most. I ended up returning them because I felt they were a little too expensive for what they were, and I wasn't sure if I really wanted white cutoffs on my currently pregnant body. I ended up buying a pair of old Levis and cutting them off myself, which had the same fit and look at a much cheaper price. If you want white these are cute, and at their current price they are a much better deal. I think I ordered a 27 since I usually take 26 in C/E and I thought they'd fit me longer pregnant and I could always wear them with a belt later.
