I love 917 jeans! They are the only jeans from TL that fit me and they have the perfect amount of stretch. Like the previous reviewer, I am also 5'6", about 130, and have a more curvy, athletic build. I ALWAYS have trouble finding jeans that will fit over my legs and booty but will also fit my smaller waist. These jeans are IT! I have multiple pairs of 917s and most are size 2. I have one or two that are size 4s so I ordered both a 2 and 4 in these to see how they fit. I ended up keeping the 2. Beware though, they do run long! If you want them to be slouchy at the bottoms or if you want to cuff them, the regulars are fine. Get the short if you want more of an ankle length.
I can take anything from a XS to a M in TL tops, depending on the fit and cut. (I am a 34C with athletic arms.) I went with a S for this one and was very happy with it. I probably could have gone with an XS for it to be more fitted but the S was good for a more lose, flowy style. This is a great basic tee style top that can be worn with anything from jeans to a pencil skirt. I was worried about it being see-through but it's a great quality fabric and is fine with a nude bra. This is a great closet staple!

I love the classic black & white combo and would highly recommend to anyone as it would be flattering on most body types.
I have trouble finding nice pants for work that fit me just right. I've tried every style of pant from TL but they are usually way to tight in the booty and legs. (I'm 5'6" about 130 but have always been curvier on the bottom with more athletic legs.) The stretch in these pants is just perfect! The don't look too tight and are very flattering. I purchased these in the grey and lilac and love them both! I'd recommend these for any ladies that have trouble fitting their curvier lower half. :)
Let me start by saying I have about 4 other pairs of 917 jeans and they are my absolute favorite fit! They are the only cut of jeans from The Limited that I can wear. (I'm 5'6" and about 135 but have thicker legs and a curvy booty.# I have a really hard time finding skinny jeans but the Limited has saved me with their 917s. I have been waiting for them to sell white 917s and was so excited when I finally ordered them. HOWEVER... I was SO disappointed when they arrived. I'm in between sizes, depending on the stretch, so I ordered a 2 and a 4 so I could try both. Unfortunately neither size fit me the way my other 917s do. I can't pinpoint exactly what the problem was #the fabric was good, thick and not see-through# but they just didn't fit correctly so I had to return them. So disappointed!
As with most of the other reviewers of this dress, I was also disappointed. I agree that the top of the dress runs large... it hangs so low under the arms that your bra is visible... not cute. Also, I ordered the mint green and the top had a black border around the seam on the inside. Yes, it was on the inside, but why would you use a black material on this light colored dress?! The material wasn't very nice either... it just felt kind of cheap. It WAS lined, which was nice, but it's definitely not worth paying full price for. I got it on sale and I'm still planning on returning it. It's an ok dress... if you get it on clearance for MORE than 50% off, it may be worth it, but otherwise, don't spring for this one.
This skirt is great! Cute, sexy but work appropriate, and comfortable! It fits the same as most of the other pencil skirts from The Limited so order your normal size. The pattern is relatively sublte in person so it's great if you're afraid of going too crazy with animal print. I'd highly recommend it!
Like many of the other reviewers said, this blouse is even prettier in person than it is online. The colors are vibrant and really pop against the grey. It is sheer so you'll need to wear a cami under it but it's also a very versatile top. Can be dressed up or down and worn various times of the year. Overall, a great purchase if you're looking for a little color in your wardrobe.
The Limited had a sweater similar to this last year and I absolutley loved it! When this one came out this fall, I had to get some different colors! The wine color is a little more purple than maroon but I still like it. I'm 5'6", about 130 lbs, and the small fits me just fine. (The XS may even fit but I didn't want it to be too tight or worry about it shrinking.) I bought it to wear with leggings and it's just long enough to cover my behind. :) I also purchased a black one and I'm thinking of getting a few more colors! I'd highly recommend this sweater!
