Warning: The shirt turned my new white shirts pink. I do not know if washing first will make a difference. I wish that I never bought it.

A comfortable basic tank (definitely not t-shirt sleeves). It fits as expected per the model-photo. However, the actual color of "blush pink" is really a soft orange (almost sherbet) color, which on my computer screen wasn't apparent. For my fair skin this color is still flattering, so I'll keep it.

VERY thin material. Runs at LEAST a size smaller than true to fit (maybe even 2). I wear a medium in almost everything. This medium seemed more like an extra small to me. I got the grey - perfectly see through.

I see this as more of a nightie. Very see-through and casual. Would definitely need to be wise about your undergarments! I got the blue color expecting a bright periwinkle, unfortunately it's more of a slate/purple. More on the grey side. Size up if you want a slouchy tee shirt dress! Length was decently long for my 5'7" frame.

This top has enough of a relaxed fit to cover my tummy bulge yet it has a flattering cut and shape. The heather blue color is a prettier blue than pictured. I fit in the size small and I am 34B, 129 lbs, and 5'5'.

I adore this top. I purchased two colors, I am a 40DD, the XL fit me perfectly, if that is a help to anyone. It`s a great top for warm temperatures, it`s a nice looking and comfortable top. I am very happy with the purchase.

Bought these for my husband & he absolutely loves them. The camouflage print gives ordinary sweat pant shorts a more cool and edgy look. Great roomy fit and nice length.

I love Alternative Apparel's leggings! This is the second pair I've bought (the first pair were Alternative's purple plaid leggings). They're soft and comfy (the plaid ones are even more soft and comfy). They don't pill like nylon/spandex leggings, though those do have a more comfortable waist. I was worried that an elastic waist would be uncomfortable, but it's not at all. I'm pretty petite (size 1-3, depending on the brand) and thought I would need an XS but ordered an XS and a S and found that the S fit much more comfortably without being loose. I know they look pricey for leggings, but they're totally worth it. It's so nice to finally have a comfortable but nice pair of leggings (without pilling!) in my closet.

This dress could be the perfect maxi….the style is chic and casual with a little twist. However, the dress runs SO small. I am a size 6 and ordered the medium and could barely get it on. The fabric is thin and therefore you could see everything. I suggest ordering a size or two up and expect to be seen!

Racerback Maxi Dress

Reviewer: Elizabeth B. from Tulsa, OK

I was looking for a simple but comfortable maxi dress for a trip to Jamaica, and bought this dress in black. My expectations weren't too high because I usually don't feel that maxi skirts or dresses are flattering on me at all. However, this one is PERFECT. I am 5'4" and NOT thin, weighing about 162 lbs, and have an hour glass figure (busty with big hips), but am small around the rib cage. So for anything to be flattering on me it needs to be fitted at the waist without being too clingy, or too thin of material. This fit the bill! I ordered a medium (anxiety told me to go with the large, but I knew if I wanted it to not be too big around the arms and neckline, or too long, I needed to go with the medium). It ended up fitting perfectly. It fits very well up top, so I could wear a racer back bra but not have to worry about a tank top or camisole, which is not the norm for me and was very refreshing. I couldn't wear normal underwear or there would have been some lines/lumps showing, so one night I went commando (not my number one choice!) and the next time I wore it I wore seamless boyshorts that didn't show underneath.I love the dress so much that I went home and ordered it in two more colors, navy and gray. You can dress it up with jewelry or a scarf, wear it with sandals or wedges, or whatever. I highly recommend!!

This hoodie is awesome! They vary slightly with each color. The grey is a little more boxy and the red is super soft and slimmer (as depicted in the photos). Very thin, perfect for spring time and layering.

I am very happy with my navy Alternative top. I ordered a size medium, it has good coverage around the arms and has a flattering neckline. The fabric floats away from the body in the tummy area and has a nice shirttail shaped hem.

I really like this dress. But there is a gap in the armhole in front. You can see it in the photo that zooms in on that area. That's really my only complaint, and because it's pretty inexpensive, I think I'll keep it. I got the eco black in medium. I'm 5'5" and about 150lbs with a flat-ish stomach. 34B. I carry most of my weight in my hips and thighs, and this dress skirts that area nicely. It hugs on the top and through the waist, which gives it a very sexy silhouette. Because of the fit, I would likely wear it with a sweater if I wore it to work. But out on a summer evening? Go for it. Also, because of the racerback, you can actually wear this with a bra (a racerback bra), which is essential for me.

It's super soft, well sized and very warm. Even seems to do pretty well in light rain. I've had some hoodies that were a little more durable, but I have been wearing this a lot.

I had been looking for a simple black shirt to wear on the week ends that I could use for around the house or going out shopping. And just couldn't find one. That is until I brought this alternative cap sleeve crew shirt I love this one turns out its one of my favorites it fits true to size and will be getting this in other colors. I can wear this even to have lunch with my girls friends or on into the evening for a night of fun.

This is a nice lightweight sweater that feels like Tee Shirt fabric. You can roll up the sleeves if you'd prefer not to stick your thumbs through the cuffs. It washes nicely.

Ordered the dress for a Caribbean vacation and it was perfect. It was more casual than I expected but could be dressed up with accessories. The material is quite thin, but not a problem for what I wanted it for. Used another reviewers advice and just cut the bottom for right length. It is very flattering on.

My new favorite shirt! Just a bit oversized to be comfortable but not sloppy. It's more oversized in the body but the arms are form fitting so it still has a feminine look. Not boxy--just the perfect shape and fit.

These cropped pants are very comfortable and flattering. I learned about Alternative because I bought one of their racerback maxi dresses at a local boutique and love how comfortable it is. These pants are no exception. I'm glad I ordered the small because the waist does start to stretch out a bit and a medium would have fallen right off my hips. Some people stated the material is flimsy but I've found it to be just right - thin but not flimsy. I love wearing these around the house/yard. Will probably buy the long version at some point too.

Bought this for my hubby. Super nice cut and the fabric is nice and soft, but it's ridiculously see-through. You can totally see his nipples through the white fabric. He tried it with a tank top underneath and the neckline of the tank top was too visible through the thin fabric. He really wanted to love it, but we had to send it back. Expected better quality for the price. Bummer.
