Very flattering and well made suit
Love this bikini - it was just what I was looking for... Tried on some other brands with similar styles but they just looked awkward and/or cheap. I'm very flat with a boyish body so I was hoping that the longer line of this top would be more flattering and luckily I was right! Another reviewer mentioned that the bottoms were too much coverage for her but I disagree - I feel like half my bottom is hanging out. I would call these pretty cheeky. Size was as expected (5'3, 115 with an athletic build & XS fits well). The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the straps are very difficult to adjust due to the thickness of the double layered fabric. I really like that the material of the suit is very thick and of nice quality but I practically had to arm-wrestle the damn thing to tighten up the straps. Not a huge deal since you'll only have to do it once but kinduv a pain. Expensive but beautiful. Totally worth it for a staple.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cute but Itchy Jeans
Initially LOVED these when I tried them on but after walking around the house a little - I noticed that I was really itchy all over my legs. I took the jeans off and put my hand/arm inside the leg of the jeans and noticed the material was super rough & scratchy to the touch. Didn't want to gamble by washing and not being able to return them so back they went. I was very sad since the length, fit & cut were perfect on me. :( Poor fabric quality control. Why would you ruin such a cute pair of jeans with such poor denim? Even lower end major mall retail brands have better stuff than this.

super cute but excessively high
loved the look of these and jumped on them when they went on sale but when i got them, the angle of my foot/ankle ended up making it feel too precarious to walk comfortably in. get them if you are used to wearing really elevated shoes. would've kept if they had a higher platform or slightly lower heel.

meh
the fabric is a little scratchy - i suppose due to the glittery aspect. the fit was just off for me - i'm petite (5'2) but have a longer torso and for me the sweater was an awkward length.

comfort plus style
really love these as they are very cute and very comfortable. i also feel they will be a super versatile piece to add to my closet as they go with everything! got them in the fango color in 7.5 (i'm a 7 but they didn't have my size). they seem to fit true to size as they are a little big but i can easily wear thicker socks to counterbalance that. with said socks, i think i could walk miles in these. love the anti-slip tread and the padded ankle as others mentioned. one warning: the fango color is not really as pictured as the laces are much darker than the leather of the boot and there is this interesting ombre effect as the shoe color is paler in places and the toe of the boot has some darkish scuff-like accents.

doesn't hold hair
wanted to love this but i have pretty thick heavy hair and i haven't been able to get it to hold my hair up. kept them in the hopes that i'll find a use for them but overall disappointed.

super cute but...
this is a very nicely made skirt and is surprisingly pretty opaque given that it's just a couple layers of sheer nude fabric. i really like the way it's cut and the asymmetrical layers are done very well; however, the waist band is strangely loose - making me appear larger than i am. (i wear xs/s or a 2 in bottoms usually.) i could fix it by cinching with a belt but the waistband is actually pretty wide - meaning your options are somewhat limited and i'm a little tired of that same old wide belted look right now. i just thought for the price this would be a more versatile piece for me.

size 1/2 size up
did as suggested and got the 7.5 - i'm usually a 7 and have wide feet anyway. these are super super comfortable on and are flattering for wide feet since they hold everything in and the leather is very supple and soft. i kind of wish they came with laces so you had the choice to lace or not lace them up but that's a problem easily remedied. overall very cute, and different. perfect for a mommy of 3 who is sick of wearing reef flip flops every day during warmer weather.

just not my style i guess
very cute, well-made, true to size (7) booties. the color is nice too; however, it just didn't look good on for me. i think they're a little higher up the leg than i wanted them to be. they also look pretty busy with all the laces. i'm going to go for a closed toe boot instead i think.
