Cute and sexy, but impractical
This is one hot coverup. I thought for sure I would keep it when I first put it on. Unfortunately the straps kept falling off my shoulders. This may be because I am fairly busty and the dress seemed to be pulling forward on top. I have two kids to chase around so I can't be bothered with falling straps. I ordered a small and found it true to size.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Not good with a string bikini
This does have a lot of fabric and is very light and voluminous, but I found it more flattering than most dresses of this type. The problem came when I put my string bikini on underneath. It is so light the strings made the fabric balloon out in an unflattering way. The length was good with flats on my 5'3" body which was a pleasant surprise, but half of my bikinis have strings so I had to pass on this coverup.

Skimpy!
I am a 30F/G which is equivalent to a 34DD cup size and the D/DD was too small for me. I expected more from this brand since I own another shoshanna bikini which fits great. If you like minimal coverage this may work for you.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).
