Very stylish skirt, but really expensive for the material used. Just want to say it runs very short. I am 5 ft. tall and the shortest part was above mid-thigh. If I were a movie-star and maybe... :).

These are soft and cozy and super cute and fit great. Usually these type of pants run big but these run true to size. I am a true size 0 and the CS fits great. Love them.

Bought this for my husband in a medium, he's 6' and weighs around 175 and it fit perfectly. I love this shirt because of the style, it's a little different than your normal tee.

I just received the black dress size small (5'7", 130 pounds, long torso, short legs) and it is so perfect with one tiny flaw. Pros: Super soft, not see-through, form-flattering, perfect scoop neck and slit up the side to look feminine but not show too much skin, perfect length for flats, can dress up or down, doesn't look like a nightgown, love the minimal waist ruche for shapeliness without the clutter of an elastic waist or belt which always annoys me. Minor con: The black is not super dark jet black; I actually thought I must have ordered a charcoal-black version and I fear that with a few washings it'll fade even more, but for the price it's worth the risk.

Let me tell you, these are fabulous. I'm 5'6", 150lbs and the size L drapes and flutters in the most flattering fluid way over my, eh, curves. I could have done an M but I like them gentle on the waist. They are great for hot weather. They are a tidy way to join the current rayon-pants trend without the crazy unflattering prints. I tried on a heap in this style, including Splendid and another pair by Alternative, and these were the most flattering. They do wrinkle so hang 'em with clips. I've trotted these all over France with the satisfaction of fitting right in (after a post-suitcase ironing, pff). Score!

I had been looking at this shirt for a long time. I finally decided to buy it. So glad I did. Very comfortable. Casual and loose without being too boxy. Hip to wear with jeans and yet casually comfortable. One of my favorite pieces in a closet full of too many clothes. I have to be careful not to put it on every day.

I love this skirt! Seems like nobody makes this basic style these days: comfy, stretchy, effortless, and just below the knees (because I prefer to hide mine). The only drawback it's very see-through. You will need a slip. Thankfully, I found one by Calvin Klein that works perfect. Another note: order one size up. Runs small for sure.

This is as wweet little lightweight t-shirt! It runs a tight true-to-size and looks and fits great right out of the package. I wanted to see how they would launder so I did a test run on one t-shirt following the instructions on the tag. I did air dry it (no heat in the dryer) along with a dry, small lightweight hand towel to avoid wrinkling and it came out quite nicely. In comparing it with one of the unwashed t-shirts, it did shrink down a size. Since I laundered the one I will be keeping it, but am returning/exchanging the other two.

I normally wouldn't spend this much on a "tee" but I'm glad I did. Love this little shirt. It's very comfortable and well made. Fits like a charm.

Great lightweight summer top! I like the rounded hem. Easy to wear under a shirt or sweater. It's a little snug across the bust, for me.

Mediocre skirt; I returned all the ones I ordered. I ordered a couple colors and sizes to compare. I am 5'8" and 130-135 lbs. This skirt was generally too short for me. The navy medium was the longest of the ones I ordered (almost to my feet), but it was too sheer, so it's going back. The other mediums and all the smalls were too short (ankle length), and again too sheer. Fit-wise, the mediums were preferable to the smalls for me. If you are shorter or prefer ankle-length skirts, and don't mind the sheerness, this may be a good option for you.

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.

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!

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.
