A bit too long in the straps
This is a nice peplum top in that it does what peplums are supposed to do, flatter the waist. I love that the peplum is slightly longer in back. I ordered the small which was the right choice. I found it minimized my bust slightly which for me is not a bad thing at 30G. Unfortunately I need to wear a bra and the straps were a little too long and my bra showed on the sides. I tried to see what shortening the straps would do but that raised the waistline and ruined the flattery of the peplum. If you are tall, have a lower bustline or can skip a bra this would be a lovely choice but for me it will go back.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Cute BF jeans
I am normally either a 25 or 26 in jeans, I ordered a 25. They fit well but did stretch out with wear so I may have even been able to get away with a 24. They are a little more fitted than my Current/Elliott jeans in size 26, but less fitted than my AG ex-boyfriends in 26, but those have no stretch. I like them and will keep them but I would like to find a pair with a more tapered leg that is still a slouchy fit.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Too big and long for me
I'm 5'3" with a 36" bust and ordered a 4. It was slightly too big everywhere but fit me closest in the bust so a size down might be too small. I should note it only fit in the bust when I pinched the shoulders a bit since it was too long in the straps on me and would need to be altered there either way. While a 2 might have worked better I didn't find it as flattering as I would have liked so will not reorder.

Nice fabric but fit is unwieldy...
I ordered this in xs though I'm usually an s since it appeared large on the models which was a good decision. The fabric has a slight sheen which is nice but I found the fit a little complicated and weird. I kept adjusting it to try to make it look better and when I would get it right in the back it was too low in the front, otherwise it would pull weirdly in the back. I decided it was too much trouble and sent it back. It might work better for a taller person with a longer torso and lower bust,

Super sexy on
I ordered this in a small, my usual size and am in love. This should be great for a night out. The white is slightly sheer but not bad with a nude bra. It is super flattering since it shows the small of the back but not the tummy and gives me the illusion of being smaller than I am. I'm tempted to order black if available in a small or maybe the long sleeved version...

Runs small in the bust
I am usually a 4 in dresses, so I ordered a small. It fit everywhere but was way too small in the bust, it squished and flattened me out. I have a 36" chest for reference. Another issue is with the seam in front, it tended to create a ridge and ripple as it moved. Also, it did not really act like a bias cut and the fabric is not what iI would consider charmeuse as it had no shine, I would consider it more of a plain weave that almost looked like a cheap polyester. This might look better on someone that it fit but it wasn't a win for me.

Beautiful, comfortable shoes
I ordered the cobalt and based on the prior review I was concerned it would lean navy. I shouldn't have worried--if anything it leans purple, which I actually prefer. It is plenty bright as well. I ordered a 38, since I am normally an 8 in sandals, and it fit well. These are very comfortable, just high enough. The suede appears to be a nice quality too. I snagged these during the extra 25% off sale and am very happy with my purchase.

Sexy flattering bikini
I am a small in clothing bottoms, size 25 or 26 in jeans, but I usually find a medium fits best in bikini bottoms. My hips are fairly narrow but I have a bubble in back and small bikinis usually indent my butt. A medium worked great in this as well, it looked just like the one on the model as far as coverage goes. I will have to be brave to wear it but I honestly think it looks better than a full coverage bottom, much in the way a cheeky panty looks better than a full panty. I also like that it has more coverage in front than a lot of bikinis so I don't feel too overexposed. I would definitely size up if you are on the fence.

Beautiful fabric and color
This swim bottom is beautiful. Th fabric combined with the green color gives it a mermaid tail feel. The ruching is cute also. I usually order medium in swim bottoms even though I am more of a small to get a little more coverage, and would have kept the medium if only the matching top fit me better. Unfortunately for that reason it had to go back.

Cute and sexy, but impractical
This is one hot coverup. I thought for sure I would keep it when I first put it on. Unfortunately the straps kept falling off my shoulders. This may be because I am fairly busty and the dress seemed to be pulling forward on top. I have two kids to chase around so I can't be bothered with falling straps. I ordered a small and found it true to size.
