Size Up
I am usually an XS or S. Due to the low inventory on these shorts at the time I ordered, I went with both a S and M because I had no idea how they ran...and I am so glad I did. I was able to get the smalls on and zipped, but they were super tight and uncomfortable. The medium, however, is too big. I am keeping them and taking them to a tailor to get the sides taken in so they will fit me in the waist, and the added length is actually good for me because I didn't want them to be booty shorts. Love the lace and the nude lining, and that they have a zipper. So many lace shorts out there are elastic in the waist and just look cheap - these do not. I recommend them, just be careful when picking your size!
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

cute but very boxy
This really is a cute top. I love the thick fabric and the pom pom detail. I also bought the lace shorts by the same brand to wear with the top. My complaints are that the top is big and pretty boxy. I am 5'3" with a short torso, so it is not cropped on me, but might be kind of short on someone taller/longer. I am planning to take it to a tailor to get it altered in the shoulder area and sides. I ordered a small but an XS would have been better for me.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Not for everyone
This is the cutest suit...I love the style and love love the colors/print and the removable peplum. But, when I put this on, it was a whole other story. I am 5'3", 110 lbs, 34C. I initially tried this in a Medium since I typically size up in swimsuits, but that was way too big. Exchanged for a small, but it still won't work. The underwire in the top forces you to wear it at a certain point, which in turn made it feel like the top was falling down. I assumed it would come with a detachable strap to help keep it up, but there is not one. My chest was just too big for it. Also you have to have a long torso for this. I have a short torso, and there was way too much extra material in the middle. Basically you have to have a long torso and small chest to pull this off! Sadly it is going back, but sooo wish it would have worked.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
