    Promising review: "I've been keeping an eye on this hoodie and I finally ordered it and 😍😍😍😍😍. It’s perfect! I could've ordered a medium instead of a large (I'm 5'2" and about 165-170 lbs), but the fact that it’s a little too big doesn’t bother me at β€” it’s a hoodie. It’s baggy enough to cover my bum with leggings on, and the band around the bottom makes it so I can pull it up a little and it looks just as cute. I’ll most likely order more but size down for a better fit. The material is soft and light and the overall quality is great! I’m probably going to live in this hoodie." β€”Brandy

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this jumpsuit.

    Promising review: "Where do I start?! This jumpsuit is AMAZING. Just look at it! I'm 5'7", a 34DD, and I usually wear a size 8-10 in tops and 8-12 in bottoms. I bought a large. This jumpsuit fits like a DREAM. The fabric is stretchy, but seems like it will hold its shape. The waist is cinched, but not tight. The fabric is fitted against my body but doesn't squeeze, the butt and thighs and chest all fit gloriously, and the length is perfect. If you're on the fence, give it a go. This is a head-turner!" β€”Pinkisnice

    Promising review: "Yeeessss, this is exactly the fit and material I wanted in joggers. I ordered a small and I'm 5'1", 130 lbs, and usually a 4/6 in pants. The waist is a tiny bit snug, but everything else is super comfortable. The material is so soft and feels great on. My favorite part is the tapered leg that makes the pants edgier." β€”Liz
