love it
I'm so glad I bought this-- it's such a versatile piece and at a great price point. One thing to note: it says the model is wearing a size 2, which looked like the size that I also should take, but there were no size 2s left and so I bought a 4. The 4 fits like a 2-- I think shopbop must have made a mistake. There's no way that a model of that height and frame could squeeze into a size smaller than the one I have. So, if you're usually a 2, buy the 4. If you're usually a 4, buy the 6, and so on.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

i LOVE koral cigarette jeans
No idea where the previous reviewer is coming from, but I guess I should thank her because these jeans were marked down to 60% because of, I'm guessing, her poor 3-star review. I snagged them at bargain price and am so happy with them! This is my third Koral purchase and second pair in the cigarette style. I think they are so flattering. They elongate the leg, slim the hips and keep their shape really well. I can't recommend them highly enough. And at this price you would be nuts to pass up on them! For reference: I typically wear a 26, and the 26 fit perfectly. My other favorite brands of jeans include Acne and R13, but the fit and quality of Koral (esp. this model) are quickly causing a shake-up in my wardrobe.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

overpriced, poorly cut
I tend to believe that "you get what you pay for," but not so in this case. On the positive side (and the only reason it gets two stars and not one) the print and design of this suit are beautiful and very retro-womanly. On the negative side: Material: The material is, well, fine- about the same as a cheap to moderately priced suit. But compared to other brands like Kushcush (amazing quality, great price point), Rosa Cha (fabulous, very expensive) and Vix (highly reliable), this really falls short. Compared to those brands, this material feels thin, insubstantial and not soft at all. Also, it's only lined on the front side. Fit: As a halter-neck, the more you tighten it up there, the more it will ride up down there. I found this suit to run short in the body. Sure, you could remedy that by lengthening the straps up top, but then you would get an unattractive droopy boob effect (note its gathered bust shelf-- this does not look good when it's four inched below the natural bust line)
