Nice, but P-U!
Date:August 20, 2013
This shirt really does look much better in person. It's not stiff like some button down shirts can be, but it still looks really professional in the office. Button down shirts have a habit of gapping at my bust, so I sized up and I actually prefer the more relaxed fit. The only MAJOR problem I have with it is it's smell...it's really hard to believe this is cotton. It gives of an odor that's part BO, part chemical. I really wish the Limited would choose better quality materials to make their tops.

Okay but not great.
Date:August 2, 2013
I have many pairs of exact stretch skinny pants because I love the classic fit and the material that doesn't fade as quickly as others. I'm so glad I purchased these in store because these particular ES skinny pants run a size larger. The burgundy color is as beautiful in person as it is online, and I'm really glad to have them.

Good buy!
Date:June 22, 2013
For anyone who owns any Exact Stretch item, these pants are made of that same material, but in the style of a skinny jean. I'm actually so glad I purchased them because in my experience, this material doesn't fade like regular cotton/denim, so I know these "jeans" will keep their color for wash after wash.
I took one star off because these pants do have quite a few gaps down the leg (I don't know if they're slightly too long for me or if my legs are slightly too thin). I ordered my actual size and I think they're a pretty good fit.

Hard to wear
Date:June 20, 2013
I purchased this top in a size larger because the one in my size kept gaping in the center (revealing my bra). I liked the idea of it and thought it would look more interesting than a plain button up. I made the mistake of wearing this top to an important meeting and the longer I had it on the more the wrap portion kept opening...why isn't the center wrap sewn shut on this?! I also kind of hate that there's an elastic waistband. It causes too much of a blouson effect, making the wearer look larger.
I definitely plan on sewing the wrap part shut and maybe removing the elastic from the waist.

Quite nice, but...
Date:June 20, 2013
I really did like the stye and fit of this jacket. I ordered my regular size and it was fine. I knocked one star off because it is advised to never wash or dry clean this item, which would be fine if there wasn't a substantial amount of knit material on the sides and all the way down the inner sleeve. I'd imagine this would be virtually impossible to keep looking pristine.

Flimsy
Date:June 10, 2013
I so wanted to love these shorts. I love the print but was gutted to discover how thin the fabric is (and the shorts are unlined). Also, the leg opening was a bit too wide...and I don't exactly have slim thighs. I felt like I had a tap pant on. I normally gravitate toward a wider-leg short, but these were too short for that slouchy short look.
What a shame.

I'm torn
Date:June 10, 2013
First, I don't know why these are listed as an online exclusive, as they had the full stock in store today. Anyway, to echo everyone else's comments: they do run slightly shorter and tighter than pictured (though, I can tell the material is the type that will stretch over time).
I purchased the Lemon Lime color, which is more neon light green than anything else. The length looks crazy awkward (and matronly), so I went a size up and plan on only wearing them rolled, for a more casual, slightly slouchy look.

I'm in love!
Date:June 7, 2013
Being a naturally busty woman, I always thought I wouldn't be caught dead in a anything strapless. However, when I saw this dress in store, I couldn't resist trying it on (in my regular size). Surprisingly, it looked pretty good! It was almost as if I had it custom made, because I raised my arms and danced around a little and everything stayed where it was supposed to.
The material is quite lovely, not just because it has a pretty shimmery design, but because it moves with your body. I also love that it can be dressed up or down...perfect for a garden party or a day at the beach. Everything about this dress is so flattering! I can see this dress staying in my wardrobe for years and years.

Not perfect but good enough...
Date:March 31, 2013
I see what the other reviewers were complaining about. This skirt is quite lovely, but it fits loosely in the waist; I wish I had chosen a size smaller. Luckily, because I have an apple figure it's not that huge of problem. I do love the way the lower half of the skirt flares out; my legs look great in it. In terms of quality, it's made of a really realistic-looking material and it's lined.
For reference, I'm 5'5" and if I wear the skirt at my natural waistline, it hits me just below mid-thigh.

Love it!
Date:March 16, 2013
This is a great dress. I have an apple-shaped figure with a few pounds to spare, so I typically avoid dresses that emphasize or cling to the waistline. Kudos to the designers of this dress because the placement of the stripes, the material and the overall structure of it help to flatter the figure. It looks great with or without a belt as well.
Like the others have suggested, go down one size for a better fit. Oh, I'm 5'5" and the dress hits at the bottom of my knee.

AminaO's Questions
 

How thin are these?

How thin is the material on these pants? Are they lined? Also, do you think they'd fit someone with a fuller bum?

Is the inseam 29", or do these pants come in the different Short, Regular, or Tall lengths?

The descritpion for these pants states the inseam is 29", but then you are asked to pick a length (S/30, R/33, T/35). So do these come in different inseam lengths or are they 29" inseam?
I don't know why that length option is there. I have them and as far as I know, these pants are only available in the 29" inseam. No other options (for length) were available in store either.
