opaque, stay put and slimming
I generally have a problem with tights slipping down because I am tall - 5'9 / 5'10 ish. These tights are great because they stay put once I have put them on. I like that they are opaque enough to wear almost as leggings but still look good with fancy dresses. The material is thick which helps protect against the cold more than normal tights do. I also found the waist slimming, but not to the point where I was uncomfortable after a large meal or after wearing them all evening. Overall, a great pair of tights!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

best. jeggings. ever.
I have had a lot of bad luck with jeggings. My J Brand jeggings ripped despite being too big for me. Another pair of J Brands have stretched beyond wear-ability. A pair of J. Crew denim leggings is also too stretched out to wear. So it is no surprise I was a bit wary when trying on these jeggings - I wanted to love them but wasn't sure if they would fit, and if they did fit, if they would keep fitting after one wear. I am happy to report they do both! The waist fits absolutely perfectly. I have now worn them three times in a row and the waist has stretch to fit mine, but not to the point I need to wear a belt. I have big thighs and these jeggings are slimming and they stretched perfectly to fit. I also love the wash - they look like real jeans but are way more comfortable! Basically these jeans are probably my favourite purchase from shopbop so far, and I will probably ask for another pair for Christmas!

Perfect for cold winter days!
I bought this sweater in ivory, and my sister has the same one. I was a bit wary because she has a long body and looks good in cropped sweaters, whereas cropped tops in general are not my style. This sweater does not follow these rules. While it was a bit roomier than I was expecting, the extra "room" was actually welcome because it gives the sweater more of a cozy, sit-by-the-fire-with-hot-cocoa feel. I am 5'9 / 5'10 ish and the sweater hits me at the top of my jeans, just like it does on the model. I like wearing a tank underneath to prevent tummy from showing; I also find that depending on how the sweater is sitting on your shoulders it can dip a bit low in the chest area. Overall, I absolutely love this sweater and plan to wear it all winter - it is unique in my closet but complements my style well. Plus, the cableknit is super soft!
Sizing: Larger than Expected

comfy, warm but sheds!
The sweater is true to size in terms of length / how it appears on the model - I am about 5'9-5'10 and the sweater is long enough to be worn as a dress over leggings or thick tights. The sleeves long enough for me to clutch in my palms, which is unusual (in a good way!) because I am so tall. I bought the cream and it is sheer - white tank underneath is a must. The sweater is surprisingly warm despite being sheer; definitely a cozy option for cold days. My one qualm about this sweater is how much it sheds. I wore it walking all day with fleece tights and a wool peacoat, and by the end of the day my peacoat was COVERED in white fluff. Nothing a good lint roller couldn't handle, but annoying. I'll have to see if this changes after it has been dry-cleaned once. The problem might also be solved if I wear a material that doesn't attract lint as much as wool does.
