Rated 3 out of 5Â by MeggsNYC Runs Small, very delicate material
This was smaller than expected, like stopped going up mid-thigh small. Perhaps due to the fact that silk has no stretch. I'm usually a medium in panties, sometimes small, especially in thongs that don't take into account my butt cheeks. I am an 8 or 28 in jeans, like Anthro's AG jeans, or even a 6 in their Cartonnier. So for a size 6/ 8 to be a large, 2/4 medium, 0 would be small and 00 would be xs? But then again I have a large hips, not stomach, so maybe a 6/8 that had a large stomach but small hips would be a medium...
The material is a very delicate mesh that is spun extremely light and thin it is certainly not for wearing very often, not very practical at all. It's fragile enough that I would wear this in the morning to lounge in but wouldn't even wear it under clothes. Note that this type of silk doesn't have luster (it's not shiny).
I exclusively wear natural materials and for a more casual girl like me this would be my version of something decadent and sexy to wear on a special vacation so I'm ok that it's not for regular use and even on sale the price is still decadent in my opinion. I have my fingers crossed that the large will not still be too small and fit correctly!
