"Thought this was WAY cute on the model, so I had to try it. Reading other reviews I decided to try it in two size...Medium and Large. Normally I wear a Large in most Free People clothing, I'm 5'4" 160lbs, curvy. When I received this it was just as cute as pictured and the medium was definitely the better fit, so I would definitely suggest sizing down. I think it looks exactly like the pictures, except I wasn't able to tie it on the side like the skinny model. Hah!"
