Dusty Blossom Review Part 2: Shorts

Here is Part 2 of my POPFLEX Dusty Blossom Review–and it’s all about the shorts!

I bought all three colors: Blush, Indigo, and Black. IMG_8579

Pros:

  • I’m glad they included an inner short (similar to POP short, though a little wider) on the inside of the mesh!
  • There’s a pocket on the inside to hold your phone, keys, etc.
  • Good coverage–I went for a run and they stayed put! Even though they’re a little larger than the POP shorts, I didn’t have to worry about them riding up. I also like that the mesh provides extra coverage.

Cons:

  • Because of the double layer, it’s a little warm to wear as the POP short inner is a thicker material than the mesh material.
  • The inner shorts are a little wider than the POP shorts. In regards to sizing, I’m not sure if I would have gone down a size just because the waistband fits perfectly on me.

So during the preview live stream, it was explained that this short was made for those who like both coverage and showing off their legs in the front–which is why they tried to combine their short lengths and made it a 1.0 in the front and a 2.0 in the back. I was really hoping to see 2.0, just because I like more coverage for my booty. They also changed the pockets of these shorts, and instead of the usual open pocket, they made them smaller and included a zipper.

Dusty Blossom 1.5 shorts:

Indigo 1.5 shorts:

Pros:

  • The colors and prints are beautiful
  • I tested them out with a PIIT28 workout, and thankfully the coverage is okay for me–However, it may be different for those with different body types!

Cons:

  • While working out, I did notice that the front rode up a bit.
  • differences in sizing with Dusty Blossom Print vs Indigo: Wish this difference was mentioned in the product page so I could have sized down appropriately.
  • The pockets are smaller 😦 Not sure why they changed it.
  • also, I’m wondering if the zipper would dig into me while I’m on my side during POP Pilates moves…I certainly hope not!
  • I miss my 2.0 length! While the shorts covered my butt well, I still don’t feel comfortable going outside for a run in them :/ I’m just not that comfortable with that much of my legs showing lol.

I’ve yet to get myself a pair of the classic black leggings that POPFLEX released, but I’m planning to wait until they hopefully release some of their “superstar” items. As always, if you have any questions about these items, let me know! Feel free to check out the items HERE! 🙂

#DustyBlossom POPFLEX Review: Bras & Tops

IMG_8542

Soooo POPFLEX released a new collection on March 22nd and I went a lil’ crazy with my cart… Fortunately for those reading, that means I have more items to give honest reviews! XD They released tops, sports bras, and one pair of leggings (which I did not get because I’m waiting for more prints/styles/colors to come out). One thing that I liked was that they told us they went back to the Peony/Mermaid collection sizing, as the Dark Bloom sizing was smaller than usual. HERE is the size chart they’re using for Dusty Blossom.

For reference: I’m 5’4″, size 4 in bras, and size 6 in bottoms. For tops, I usually get a size 6, but I’m wondering if (for this collection) I’m a size 4….

Here are layouts of the main colors I purchased:

IMG_8567

Dusty Blossom print items (From Left: Keyhole bra, Hold me zip bra, 1.5 Hi-Lo shorts)

 

IMG_8588

Indigo items! (Probably one of my favorite colors that POPFLEX has released). (From Left: Hello There top size 6, keyhole bra size 4, 1.5 Hi-Lo shorts size 6)

 

Let’s separate these by categories, shall we?

SPORTS BRAS:

Hold Me Zip Bra

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’m glad the POPFLEX team listened to us from the last Dark Bloom collection–the zenith zip bras were pretty, but for those who are more well endowed than I am in the chest area, there was no way to secure the zipper! There’s also a handy strip of fabric to give extra comfort so the zipper doesn’t poke us in the sternum during workouts. The fabric is comfy and soft, and the backing on the zip bra is cute. The cups are also removable!

IMG_8573

**One thing to note is that ALL items with the Dusty Blossom print are made with a different material (it’s a little thinner) and are a little bit larger than the other colored items of the same style. Examples here:

IMG_8561

Keyhole bras: both size 4 (the indigo fits me perfectly, but the dusty blossom is a tad large)

IMG_8577

Hi-Lo shorts: both size 6 (As you can see, the Dusty Blossom is a bit larger than the indigo)

So, if you are planning on getting any Dusty Blossom items, I would probably size down, especially with the keyhole bra! The Dusy blossom Zip bra is also a little large, but I had no other item to compare it to 😛

(I will pose pics of the keyhole bras when I get the chance!)

img_8578.jpg

Probably my favorite color/style of bra that POPFLEX has released!

Pros:

  • fairly easy to take off–no contortioning needed!
  • fits me perfectly. I followed the size chart (I’m a size 4 in this collection along with the peony/mermaid collection)
  • Comfortable–no squeezing on my underarm flabs during my workout! ❤ this is a pretty huge thing for me because the Set the bar POPFLEX bras have always squeezed on my flabs.
  • COLOR (I guess this is biased because I love blue)
  • sturdy, keeps everything in place (from the perspective of a small-chested girl, so I can’t say otherwise for those with different bust sizes!)
  • The backing is super cool

Cons:

  • if you decide to go out into the sun with this top, wear sunscreen! You don’t want a dotted looking tan lol.

paired with the hi-lo 1.5 short in Indigo

TOPS: 

IMG-2645

When I first saw this top, I was like “interesting–this looks more like a going out top!” Once I pulled it on and popped my head through, I was like ooooh I feel fancy! lol I think this would pair nicely with the high waisted highness leggings. The midsection is a bit wider than I expected, but I think if I sized it down any more it would be too tight on my armpit area. I found it interesting that they kept the torso/midsection so wide. It might be possible that they were trying to answer some customers’ concerns with previous collections’ tops being too narrow in the waist? *shrugs*

Pros:

  • removable cups
  • really pretty color
  • the neckline design is quite dramatic 😉
  • haven’t tested it in a workout, but maybe I’ll wear it to next week’s class and update you guys!

Cons:

  • a little wide around my torso
  • Taking this top off is a challenge! Felt a little like a contortionist while also trying not to ruin the front/back straps.

 

IMG_8548

paired with the secret run shorts in black!

IMG_8545

side view: as you can see my chest is verrrrrry small XD hahaha

IMG_8544

back view= same design as the front!

 

IMG_8543

Probably one of my favorite tops, just because it’s layer-able and the cut is kinda cute. To be honest, this whole collection got me overwhelmed with the mesh/fishnets, so I’m really wondering how to best pair these items so I don’t end up looking like a washed up mermaid! XD What works best, for me at least, is pairing one mesh item with a solid legging/short. I’m sure you guys can pull it off, but mesh top with mesh bottom might be too much for me (as shown below)!

 

IMG-2759

Paired with the zip bra and secret run shorts: have I reached mermaid status yet?????

IMG-2793

IMG-2800

As you can see, the top is a little bit wider around the torso area, so if you like your tops a bit more fitted, maybe size down? (This is a size 6 btw–and I like that it’s not too tight around the arm pit area–I have wide shoulders and always worry about this area fitting well)

IMG-2794IMG-2782

 

Probably one of my favorite tops, since it’s pretty flattering with whatever sports bra you decide to wear with it! I also really love the color ❤

 

Another favorite top! I got a size 6. I probably could have sized down, but I’m comfortable in it–and I like the fact that I can hide that midsection mesh bit–I don’t really want to show off too much skin during my POP Pilates classes, even if it is covered with the fishnet mesh. I like this top because I feel like I have enough coverage (I know, I know my boobs are small!) that I don’t have to worry about anything shifting around while I’m moving and doing POP Pilates moves! The length is just right, too. Last night I had my weekly POP Pilates class and wore this top with my fave draw the line leggings, and everything stayed put! My top didn’t ride up and I was comfortable doing hundreds of roll ups.

Pros:

  • comfortable
  • coverage (for small chested peeps, at least)
  • removable cups
  • can style it so the mesh shows/doesn’t show in the midsection

Cons:

  • removing this requires a little bit of contortion, at times I’m worried I’ll tear the fishnet mesh.

 

IMG_8555IMG_8551

img_8582.jpg

I really like the neckline of this top! However, I find the side mesh parts to be a little distracting and a bit awkward, on my body at least. During the launch they had a live video showcasing this top and how they wanted to make an illusion of slimming the body down using these side cuts, but I don’t quite see it–at least not on me. I think my body shape is too straight or my waist doesn’t have that flattering ratio like on the POPFLEX models lol. I kind of wish they kept the side cuts out of this top and it would’ve been perfect!  Now that I think about it, I think if the side cuts were a little bit higher up, like right underneath the bust (similar to the bodypop tank), then maybe it would look more flattering. Maybe. Overall, my least favorite top.

Pros:

  • neckline
  • removable cups
  • backing is nice and comfy (last collection’s zipper backing was pretty but I couldn’t wear it to POP classes as we have lots of back work and I can’t stand a zipper stabbing me in the back while doing roll ups lol)

Cons:

  • the cut-outs were the major con for me, not flattering for my straight torso/wide shoulders combo. Kinda looks like a shark bit out my sides.

IMG-2811

IMG-2839

looks pretty good from the back

IMG-2825

I’m still so confused by the side mesh cut-outs! If it had a continual design along the back or front, I think it might’ve looked a little better on me.

 

IMG-2878

my tummy just looks bigger lol

IMG-2871

maybe 3/4 angle it looks okay? lol not the most natural looking pose, however!

I’m realizing this post is getting a bit long, so I’ll be covering shorts in my next post!

POPFLEX Peony mini haul review

I decided to take advantage of the awesome Spring sale that’s going on at POPFLEX and snagged myself the Goddess top in Navy and the Set the Bar bra in Navy/White.

Screen Shot 2017-03-20 at 11.48.00 AM

What I love is how quickly my items shipped to me! Plus, I live in Hawaii so regular packages (like from Amazon) take FOREVER to get here. I ordered my stuff on Monday and the POPFLEX team got it shipped to my by Wednesday. How awesome is that?! I honestly think they have the best shipping speed and customer service out of all the online shopping sites that I’ve experienced 😀 (oh god Old Navy’s was TERRIBLE but that’s a rant for another time).

I did a quick photoshoot and review for you guys, in case you’re interested in buying any POPFLEX during the sale!

First up is the Goddess Top in Navy:

I decided that even though I’m a size 4 in their bras, my boobs may be x-small but the rest of me is a little bit wider, so I sized up to a 6! And I’m glad I did. In the photos I paired it with my Draw the Line Peony leggings, which I highly recommend because they’re super comfy, have breathable black mesh on the sides, and have really cute Peony print POCKETS. I’m all about them pockets. 😉

IMG_2340

The front has a really nice silhouette

 

IMG_2333

The side is a teeny bit revealing

IMG_2331

I like how it flows down the back and how well it covers the booty XD

 

 

Pros:

  • It’s super flowy and I love the little cutouts on the sides that flow down at the back.
  • The backing is beautiful with the Peony print straps to show off your back.
  • The top is made out of their bra material while the bottom skirt part is made out of their Swan tank breathable material. (I reviewed their Swan Tank here)
  • I can’t speak for girls who have larger chests, but the bra part is compressed enough to hold everything in!
IMG_2344

band is a bit tight

IMG_2342

see the difference in material? I like that the material is more breathable in the tummy area, though.

IMG_2314

There may be some side boob going on for other people, but since mine are so small, I’m not that concerned. It does look a bit funny that the black inner is poking out XD

Cons:

  • The band in the middle is kind of tight (for a good reason, though, but still) and feels a little bit awkward when you first wear it.
  • Taking the top off is a challenge! I felt like a contortionist trying to pull it off! Another reason why I’m glad that I sized up.

Overall:

  • I recommend going one size up due to the band tightness and bra. Even though mine is a little bit big on me, I’m glad I sized up.
  • I’ve yet to test it out in a workout, but I’m sure everything stays in place.
  • This is a good top if you want to show off your back 😉

Next up is the Set the Bar bra in Navy/White:

This is a bra that I’ve wanted since it first came out, but always waited to get. I fell in love with the colors and the mesh design! So when I saw that it was on sale, I digitally threw it into my cart and was so happy to get it in the mail 🙂 I read that this bra runs tighter than the heart strings bra, so I sized up to a size 6 (I’m like a 32A–really small boobs lol).

 

IMG_2364

hehe you can still see the POPFLEX tag on the right side XD I forgot to snip it off! 

 

Pros:

  • The color! I love the navy/white combo
  • Stylish and breathable mesh cut-out
  • Holds everything in place (I mean, I don’t have much to hold, but they definitely feel in place!)
  • The backing is super cute and supported. I like how thick the bands are.

 

IMG_2374

Back and arms are all thanks to PIIT!

 

Cons:

  • Underneath the armpits area, similar to the Mermaid crop bra, is very tight! As you can see from the picture below, they don’t give that much room for my back/arm flab. lol. Another reason why it’s good to size up.
  • Because this bra is tight, just like with the Goddess top, you have to contort yourself when taking it off! A good thing is that the straps are so thick I don’t feel like I’m going to tear anything. But it’s still a workout in itself to take it off XD.

 

IMG_2378

Not much armpit space

Overall, I’m happy with my purchases and am excited to wear them for all of my PIIT and POP workouts!

POPFLEX Fly Away Run Shorts Review

When I first tried these on, I realized that they run pretty large, so I had to wait and exchange my Dark Bloom run shorts size 8 for a size 6. I was so excited to get my exchange in the mail! I wore it to the gym and it was super comfy. They look very flowy, like flower petals, and have black mesh underneath for some extra coverage.

Below is the front and back of the shorts. The lighting is a bit more yellow-y due to my taking these shots at home at night, but the colors are pretty vibrant in person!

IMG_2181

The front has a really long string tie to tighten the waistband, and as the POPFLEX Stylist tip recommends, you can cut the string to a desirable length.

IMG_2186

I think cutting it, folding the edge a tiny bit over, and sewing a backstitch with black thread will work! I’m a newbie at sewing, too just FYI. 

On the picture in the left, it’s a little hard to tell, but there’s a fold of fabric that goes diagonally over the fabric covering the back, and that fold does go all the way up! So if a breeze were to ruffle the shorts, it may reveal a bit too much lol. So if you need more coverage, wearing some black bike shorts, or black POP shorts underneath totally works. Because the shorts are so light, it doesn’t feel bulky at all!

IMG_2183

Paired the Flyaway shorts with black POP shorts 2.0 for extra coverage.

The material is really like surf shorts, and it actually did wick away all the sweat I had when I worked out at the gym. What’s nice is that there’s also a velcro pocket in the back ( I love pockets!). I’m hoping the velcro is sturdy and doesn’t accidentally rip off if I’m opening the pocket too fast.

IMG_2176

Overall, this is a pretty pair of running shorts to wear! (ooh I totally just rhymed)

Dark Bloom Haul!

It’s extremely gloomy and gray today, so getting my POPFLEX in the mail early really brightened my day! I rushed to open each package and tried everything on. I noticed that the sizing changed pretty drastically from the Mermaid to Dark Bloom, as everything ran smaller than before (like with the Wishing Star Capris that I reviewed HERE).

*DB: Dark Bloom

 

img_1893

POPFLEX haul (starting from left top): Curious Crop top, Heartstring bras, Zenith Zip bra, Flyaway run short, DB Wishing star capri, Adventure Zip leggings, DB POP shorts.

 

 

I’ll post better pictures later, but here’s a brief review of my haul:

img_1888

Enchanted shrug in Plum + DB Zenith Zip bra + DB POP shorts

I tried the bottoms on first! Everything fit as expected, as I went a size up (size 8) and it was pretty comfy. The color of the Dark Bloom print, along with the cabernet Adventure Zip leggings were so pretty!

The black tank (Victorious Tank in night) fit pretty well, and I like the soft material that it’s made out of. The Adventure Zip leggings surprisingly fit kinda snug vs the Your Royal Highness leggings (that I reviewed here ) in the same size, which I thought was weird. The Zenith Zip bra is probably my favorite bra out of the bunch, as I don’t have to do my usual contortion act to get my broad shoulders over the straps. Just zip up and I’m good to go.

img_1896

Here is an overall kinda quick review 😉

*something to note* Whatever has the Dark Bloom print has a similar material to the BodyPOP watercolor shorts, so it feels slippery and smooth.

BRAS

  • Heart Strings bra (night, cabernet, DB) size 4
    • A little bit tight. If you have wide shoulders and a small bust, I would size up. Overall it fits my small chest (size 34A), but I had a difficult time getting it over my shoulders. What’s frustrating is that I was a size 4 in their previous collection (Peony, that bra was my favorite!) but according to this picture, there is a bit of a width difference:
    • img_1892
  • Zenith Zip bra (size 4)
    • again, fits my boobs but a bit tight around my shoulders.
    • Also feels a bit tight around the arm pit area.
    • Love the zipper, which reduces my struggle to put on/remove the bra by A LOT.
    • Print is amazing, as usual.
    • I recommend sizing up, especially due to the tight arm pit area.

TOPS

  • Victorious Tank in night (size 6)
    • Comfy and soft, felt pretty true to size
    • I like the swooping, curved hemline at the bottom.
    • The deep V cut lets you show off your sports bra without being too hoochie mama (lol).
  • Curious Crop Top (size 6) in DB
    • Glad I went up a size, as I figured my wide shoulders would cause issues.
    • The neckline is pretty tight, so I recommend sizing up
    • No zippers or clasps, so pulling this on was no minor feat!
    • makes my arms/shoulders look pretty good
    • Once it’s on, it’s super pretty and the straps are wide and sturdy–I can probably do PIIT28 in this and have everything stay in place (though I’m small-chested so I can’t speak for different chested girls)

BOTTOMS 

  • Adventure Zip legging (size 8) in Cabernet
    • a little snug than the Highness in size 8, but fit well
    • love the POCKETS and the fact that I can unzip the leggings whenever I need to take them off!
  • Fly Away Run short (size 8) in DB
    • Definitely go a size down! The band is stretchy but pretty wide. I need to exchange mine for a smaller size.
    • I love the design of the shorts and how they look like flower petals 🙂
    • The material is similar to surf shorts (quick to dry, light, and stretchy)
    • The shorts don’t have a liner (the part that looks like underwear) so if you need more cover, you can wear black POP shorts or compression shorts underneath
    • Read the Stylist tips on the product page–the drawstrings are long so you can cut and customize it to the length that you want.
  • Wishing Star capris (size 8) in Dark Bloom
    • true to size, comfy
    • They’re beautiful!
    • I love that the wishing star parts of the capris are made out of the DB print, too!
    • The only downside: NO POCKETS 😦 they’d be perfect if they had pockets. Oh well.

POPFLEX Your Highness leggings review

screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-5-37-50-pmThese leggings. are. GORGEOUS. At first I was skeptical, thinking “oh the design kinda looks like other designs that are out there.” but once I put them on and went for a run in them, I fell in love with them. ;P What I love most about the leggings is the fit and design. The material is comfy but keeps everything in place while I went running, and the mesh parts kept my legs cool and ventilated (lol). The design of the mesh cutouts is super cute, and kinda sexy, if I may say so myself. Here are some shots of the mesh design:

img_1652img_1653img_1646

img_1649

I love details. The almost chevron design on the side with the stripe gives the leggings so much movement!

img_1651

I love these, have I said that enough? lol

I think the only con is that these beauties have no pockets 😦 Other than that, they’re my favorite pair so far! Thanks, POPFLEX, for making an awesome pair of leggings. I wish I could wear these every day.

btw they’re called Your Highness leggings because they’re high waisted leggings! So they’re pretty flattering. If you don’t like stuff coming up (or covering) your bellybutton, you can always fold them over if you want.

In regards to sizing: I’m about 128lbs and 5’4″. The size 8 fit me perfectly. Make sure to follow the new size guide! They now run their sizes from XXS to 2X! Isn’t that awesome? 😀 You can check out these leggings HERE, or just click on my new Links menu above!

#DarkBloom Wishing Star Capris

I was so excited to get these in the mail! ^_^ I just had to go do a little mini photoshoot on my own, and then later on with a friend. So these are the POPFLEX Wishing Star Capris, which are something us POPsters have been wishing for so long ❤ A good number of us out there are more petite or short, so capris are awesome—and also great for hot weather places, like Hawaii!

So here they are: in Night and Plum. The make my legs look sooo long because of the side mesh! One unfortunate thing was that I noticed a little tear on my plum capris 😦  This happened after my second time wearing them, so I’m guessing that my calves were too big or something lol.

 

I am 5’4″ and got a size 6, though these felt pretty snug on me. When I did a size comparison with the previous POPFLEX pointe legging and this one, I noticed that there’s a HUGE difference! Maybe next time I’ll get a size 8 (which is my normal medium sized bottoms lol).

Here are some pros and cons before I post all my pics from both shoots 😀

PROS:

  • beautiful color
  • unique criss-cross star pattern on sides
  • wicks moisture pretty well

CONS:

  • a bit tight on calf area (if you have big soccer/running calves like me)
  • no pockets 😦
  • snug, but probably would’ve fit better if I sized up: ALWAYS check the size guide if you’re not sure! That was my con lol.

Onto the pics! If you have any questions, let me know. You can check out all of the POPFLEX stuff here!

img_6318fullsizerender-13

By the way… There’s MORE POPFLEX coming out!!! 😀 Some sneak peek designs:

img_1445

Those running shorts, leggings, sports bras, and tops??? Definitely going to break my bank *cries*

POPFLEX review: Siren tank

Hey, everyone! So as you know, I snagged myself the POPFLEX Siren tank that I’ve been wanting to get for like….a while, just because I’ve been wanting a more fitted top. Don’t you hate it when you’re doing plank jacks or burpees and your shirt just rides up?? It’s a little pet peeve of mine. 😛

So here it is! (with my matching POP shorts) Size 6 Siren top + Size 6 POP shorts.

img_1223

I’ve heard from fellow POPsisters and POPsters that this tank is REALLY tight and not that stretchy, so I went a size up, and BOY, am I glad I did! The material is strangely not stretchy in comparison to the material that the leggings are made out of… As you can see:

 

img_1218

Here’s the back!

 

img_1221

It’s pretty tight on me. And the neck part feels a little bit constricting. Over time I got kind of used to it, though.

Was this meant to be a compression top? If so, it’s working! I did some POP Pilates practice today, and everything stayed in place, so kudos to that. I also like that there’s a built-in bra with removable padding! (I love things that are two-in-one lol)

However, the fit is still interesting to me. I have broad shoulders so putting this on and taking it off were mighty difficult. It might just be my proportions being weird. Is anyone else having this issue?

 

Also, because I went a size up, there was still space in the backing part of it, which includes a cool mesh and cut-out:

img_1224

the backing is pretty + airflow for breathability

However, due to this extra space, it caused some awkward puckering:

One plus side is that the halter neckline makes my shoulders and arm muscles really stand out!

Overall, here is a pros and cons list for this Siren tank! While it is pretty tight, it does its job in keeping everything together, and I love the backing and how the neckline lets you show off your arms and shoulders.

  • PROS:
    • compression keeps everything in: no sagging or riding up
    • really cute back design with breathability
    • built-in bra w/ removable padding
    • wanna show off your arms/shoulders? this is the top for you!
  • CONS: 
    • My main issue was that it has so MUCH compression–the fabric is very tight and doesn’t stretch much, so go a size up!
    • puckering in the back.

If you’re interested in getting some POPFLEX, you can get some HERE! I’m eagerly awaiting Wednesday… If you have any questions, just lmk in the comments below 🙂

Btw: I’m hoping the new #DarkBloom collection that’s coming out this Wednesday is much better fitting and is more inclusive for all shapes and sizes!

img_1319

I’m really excited to see the colors and styles of activewear and accessories that are going to be released! The only junk thing is that I have no money because I spent all of it on Black Friday deals lol. We shall see…

POPFLEX!

I should really put a new picture of my current POPFLEX pile…It’s slowly growing and I don’t think it’s ever going to stop! What I love is that their team takes input from their customers and makes changes (aka POP shorts 1.0–> 2.0 with more coverage!). Even now they’re making changes to their upcoming collection, taking their audience’s needs and wants into consideration.

screen-shot-2016-11-03-at-8-57-21-pm

While they’re still a new brand, I can’t wait to see what else they’ll come out with. I’m dreaming of stuff like this:

 

img_0769

CAPRIS, Jackets, headbands, oh my!!! basically my wishlist

 

 

untitled-design

These clothes bring us POPsters together even more as a community while making us feel beautiful, strong, and confident while we workout or even lounge around–I’d definitely call my mermaid pointe leggings athleisure, they’re so comfy!

POPFLEX Pop Short Peony review

FullSizeRender 6

I’ve been waiting for them to restock since March and when I checked back in the beginning of May I was so surprised to see everything back in stock! So I rushed and bought myself a pair in Mermaid and Peony. You guys. The color of these shorts is so VIBRANT and beautiful! I love them and I can’t wait to work out in them.

I paired them with the BodyPop Peek-a-boo Peplum Top in Night, which is a super cute and girly top that definitely gives me some shape! This top is still on sale HERE! It has a built in bra, too, which is nice.

To go into more detail about the shorts:

  • POCKETS–pretty deep enough to hold my phone (iphone 6s)
  • as I said before, really vibrant and pretty colors
  • the length is also a bit longer than before, which I like, because I always worry about my butt poking out lol—really wouldn’t want anyone to see that–yikes!
  • I followed the size guide and even though I’m usually a size Medium in shorts, went down to a size 6, as my Pointe leggings (size 8) were kind of baggy in the crotch area (see my other post for more details). I was so worried they’d be too tight, but when I pulled these on, they were perfect! And so comfy.
  • they pair really well with any solid tops, or the Swan or Goddess tops!
