Flattering sweatshirt
I ordered an xs, my usual size in Wildfox, and really liked the look and feel of this sweatshirt. I am 5'3" and the arms are long but they just bunch up at the wrists which adds to the look of the shirt. Wildfox sweats are kind of expensive but I haven't found a more flattering line for sweats and loungewear. For reference I am 32DDD with s 26" waist and many sweatshirts make me look bulky but not this one.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Flattering sweatpants!
It does seem a little silly to spend this much on a pair of sweat pants even on sale but I have found Wildfox sweats to be ridiculously flattering and soft, and these are no exception. They are a little long and loose on the bottom, especially for someone short like me, but they roll or bunch up nicely. They are more feminine than they appear in the photo and are drapey and soft. I ordered an xs, my usual size.

Inconsistent sizing on Add Down
I have an Add Down coat from last year that fits me perfectly in a 40, and I wanted a shorter military style coat that would keep me as warm this winter. I ordered the green in a 40 and it is noticeably tighter in the chest and shoulders compared to my other coat. I am normally a size 4 in coats so maybe the other one just ran large, but I expected them to fit the same. In looking at the photos of the model it appears the coat is a little tight in the chest and shoulders on her as well, so maybe this is how it is supposed to be. I am still trying to decide whether to order a size up. The bottom puffs out in the back too and my waist looks larger than it does in my other coat, so this one may just not be as flattering for me.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Great black distressed skinnies
I had been coveting the Alana crop in offbeat but was waiting for a sale, and unfortunately my size sold out before that. I had initially overlooked these because they are not so obviously distressed in the photo and I wanted some distressing. These are perfect--no gaping holes but enough damage to add interest. I wanted undone hems too so these fit the bill. I wanted a high rise also but a mid rise is very versatile and a good compromise, since the Alana had gaping holes. These are super soft and stretchy, not a normal denim material but they seem strong enough. I ordered a 25 and 26 and kept the 25 which is my usual size.

Super Flare is super!
I ordered these on a whim during the sale, just to see how they looked. I was excited to find a flare in petite sizing and hoped I would not have to shorten them. I ordered a 25, my usual size, and when I opened the package I swore I would never get them on--they looked like little girls' jeans. They are quite soft and stretchy however and fit comfortably but like a glove. So flattering! And they are the perfect floor skimming length for me with about a 3 inch heel (I'm 5'3"). The waist is super high and the front pockets give these a very retro look--there is no way they would be mistaken for the flares of 10-15 years ago. Good job, Shopbop.

Beautiful but not for me
I ordered a 4, my usual dress size. I wear a 25 or 2 in bottoms but need a little more room for my 32 DDD chest and shoulders. The 4 fit but I felt like it flattened my chest out a bit. There is no darting which is completely understandable as it would ruin the look of the lace. It was slightly loose in the waist and I generally need a more defined waist for flattery otherwise I look like a barrel all the way down. So I guess it just wasn't right for my body type. I will say that the dress was pleasantly short, a nice mini length, even on me at 5'3". It might be too short for someone a lot taller. As others have said the dress is very well made and comfortable, it is double lined in the body and very soft.

Comfortable and soft
I don't have any jeans in this bleached color and I wasn't sure if the color would look right in a skinny style or overly distressed version. These are perfect. They are more fitted than a boyfriend but looser than a skinny. They have no holes but the distressed ankles make them look a little timeworn. They are more fitted in the legs on me than on the model but I have athletic thighs--they are not tight however. I have a feeling I will be putting them on a lot since they are so comfortable feeling right out of the gate. Not too long on my 5'3" body either. I took my usual size 25.

Nice jeans
I ordered this pair in size 25 which is my usual size and they fit great. Like other R&B jeans I've tried in a skinny style they are a little tight in the legs compared to other brands, but they are still comfortable. I like the length too at 5'3", and since I was trying to find a frayed hem pair of jeans that aren't too long they are almost perfect. Distressing is just right and in a place where I won't blow through a knee after a few wearings. The only thing I don't really like is that the stitching on the top of the back pockets and yoke seam is a little bright...it looks a little blingy and I'm not a blingy pocket kind of girl. I'm probably just being overly picky and nobody can see that stitching if I wear anything but a cropped shirt. I do plan to keep them since I found them on sale and the price was right too.

Worth a try, but...
I ordered a medium in this romper after seeing a black version on somebody. I am normally either a small or xs but neither of those was available. I was hoping the fit might be forgiving enough to wear big but it was not flattering for me. That said, it was really cute on the person I saw and I am now trying an xs from the Free People site, in another color. Unfortunately I will pay full price for that one but I like the color more and that will hopefully fit well so I guess I am willing to pay.

Nice sandals
I have been looking for a minimal flat sandal for some time but found they often make my feet look big. These do not. I think it is because the ankle strap goes down rather than wrapping the ankle completely. The top strap is a little shorter too. They are comfortable and made in Italy, and very versatile. I took my regular sandal size 8. There are three different leather textures on the sandal, which isn't entirely evident from the picture.
