Sheer fun
I love this little chemise. I'm petite so this works as a slip for me, not too short, not too long. It is a great length. Sheer, but the beautiful print helps to mask the private areas. I wouldn't walk around in front of other people in the light with this on, but when the lights are dim, then I can get away with it somewhat (the print helps, otherwise, no print, no coverage.) Important that the flowers on the breast area are enough for quick coverage. A very light, delicate piece--I haven't snagged (hoisery is very snaggable) it yet, so that's a good sign. I'd buy more from this gorgeous brand--completely true to size (I purchased an xs and it fits like one.) If you're small enough, you can even put this on by putting your legs through the top--the elastic is enough, but also tight enough to have a good close fit. I like that even though it is fitted under the bust, it doesn't give that pregnant or empire waist type look. Great for home. This is so pretty, I might even layer it out.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Multiples
I own this in white and black. They fit perfectly. I'm usually very self conscious of my thighs, but they help camouflage my thickness. The pockets don't go down that low like in the picture. I'm glad mine don't, it's not my favorite look of the exposed pocket lining style.

Beautiful and tough
I love lace and I love the military pairing. It's a loose fit, that's why I put "larger than expected" since I am always for a body-con look. Even though it's loose, it was still good proportion. I am very petite and this still worked and didn't look wrong on me. I love the material--it's rather delicate being that it's almost 100% lace (minus hardware and lining). I love that it comes with a separate lining, pretty rare these days. It's such a great look too--can't wait to wear it out.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Beautiful, but almost
I almost gave this 5 stars. The fabric and pattern were top notch for the price--really a gorgeous little piece that can fit under a dress or over one. The lace was very intricate--my type of lace and the feel of it rather luxe. I got it in black. My only complaint are the sleeves--the lacey part. I thought it would go on easily and still tight, but this was TOO tight. I was afraid of ripping it. I could have used a little bit more room, even just .25 inch. I'm petite and slim, but I'm not unhealthy. This was way too tight. I had to go extremely slow and had to pick parts to put pressure on the pulling being that it was lace. I'm wondering if it would have helped to get a size small, but I never buy smalls, always xs or xxs, so this should give you an idea of how tight it was. The rest of the piece fit fine for my torso. It's a loose cut with the wool portion. Normally I'd prefer a body con cut, but this was fine since it's a lightweight material and this fit fine under jackets + more
