These are very true to size. I usually fluctuate in weight/sizes between 170-180, and I brought these in size 8 and fit perfectly, and when I can drop those couple pounds, the tie up will be perfect to fit still. They are not too short cover up everything very nicely which is awesome for my thick thighs.
Clothes line is very cute there is only two things wrong with it.
1) Seems a little bit pricey
2) Why no plus sizes (big girls like to be beautiful too AND we have money to spend)
