Cute but crawl up between the legs
I ordered a 25 and a 26, and as usual with R&B the 25 fit best. I wouldn't say they are high rise and they still hung a little low in the crotch, and also crawled up a little between the legs. A 24 may have been more high rise and had less extra fabric in the crotch but then they would have been uncomfortably short for me. These weren't bad but I have two other pairs of denim shorts and these just didn't have the look I was going for.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Lovely fabric but a little skimpy
I am a 30F/G, 36" chest and found the large a little skimpy on coverage. I kind of expected this but thought I would try anyway because I loved the color and fabric, which has a mermaidy look. Sigh. If only an XL were available.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Beautiful versatile gladiators
I ordered 4 pairs of gladiators to try and these were the winner. The color works well for me and the style can go more feminine and dressy or more casual. They maybe come up a little high in the back so they rubbed a little but I don't think that will be too much of a problem. The gold studs are more of a brushed pale champagne color so they look nice with silver and gold. I am normally an 8 in sandals and a 38.5 fit great.

A little low cut
I ordered this bottom in a small and found it a little low cut in front. I've had c-sections so I don't need my scar popping out. Otherwise it fit well with enough coverage in the back so if you're not scarred like me it may work!

Comfortable, cute gladiators
I purchased 4 pairs of gladiators to try and these were one of the top 2 contenders. I decided on the Ash Mani sandals because I felt they had a more feminine look and would be more versatile. These however were the most comfortable of the bunch as they have a padded footbed and the nubuck is very soft, and the lacing makes them fully adjustable. They are a little tough looking and give clothes a more casual look. Like most flat gladiators they make the foot look a little long but not too horribly. I wasn't crazy about the color so that helped sway my decision. I probably would have kept them had I not preferred the other pair. They do maybe run slightly large so if you are between sizes go with the lower one.

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.

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.
