Seriously?!
I am no prude when it comes to price, but I seriously can't understand why *anyone* would spend $148 on a poorly shaped, poorly constructed hoodie with a malfunctioning/ cheap zipper!? I thought this would be cute, it isn't. It fit so poorly it was almost comical. The shoulders and arms are huge, so much so that even the small (I am a US size 8!) had room for two of my arms and then some. They were comically large even on 5'10" men's size M misterstone. The bottom of the hoodie was tight in an uncomfortable way, like it wasn't designed to go around hips. The zipper was so awful that after 5 minutes of trying to unzip to get it on/off, I gave up and pulled it off with littlestone's help. If you are *very* tall, broad shouldered, and plan to never zip up your hoodie, this might work. Otherwise, don't bother.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Obsessed.
I am new to michi, but I am currently obsessed. The quality seems great (fabric, construction, etc.), and each piece really feels and looks special. The waistband on these is nice and thick, and completely wrapped with hidden seams- no pinching, biting, scraping, scuffing, and no constant adjustment. Now the slight bummer... at this price point for activewear, I expected true-to-euro sizing, as in my 5'4" size US8 body would be a large. I bought the large, and while they weren't quite saggy-baggy territory, they definitely didn't hold me in the way I'd like. The mediums were a much better fit. I would say they are very true to American sizing- the L is really a US10-12, M is US6-8, etc. Order accordingly!

Another brazen basic!
First, I love Lanston. I sleep in Lanston, I lounge in Lanston, I sunbathe, yoga, brunch, read, drop littlestone off at school in Lanston. I am 5'4", size 8, with a large bust and broad hips, the large fits great (loose and draped). This top is definitely special; I feel like Jessica Rabbit, the draping is fab, and there is a natural almost-sheen to the fabric that lets you dress it up a bit. Word to the wise: don't ever wash these tops in anything other than cold water on gentle/ handwash cycle and lay flat to dry. I dry clean mine. NEVER place modal in the dryer.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

True Love!
I have to say, I was skeptical about this bra. It was cute, but at a full D cup with a small waist, "cute" isn't something I can typically expect from my bras. Nevertheless, I gave it a shot- and have been loving it ever since! The Goods: 1. I am a full 32D. The large fits me well for light physical activity- yoga, barre, leisure cycling. I doubt the large would fit anyone with less than a full B cup, or more than a full D. 2. The padding is more of a thick lining, and as such, seems to hold you in better. Also, because of the adjustable straps and wraparound design, this is the kind of crazysexycool bra that is so comfortable you almost forget you're wearing it. 3. Quality seems great, I love the fabric. Bottom Line: Peeking out of a top, or on it's own, it looks unique, sexy, and still sporty. If you can swing the price, pounce!
