I received this striped peplum tee in XSP and I’ve been reaching for it at least once if not twice a week. Refer to my review of size XS regular here.
I also ordered this plaid softened shirt in XXSP after trying on size XS regular in store last week here. It runs big since size XXSP fits like XSP.
LOFT Flutter Peplum Top, size XXS regular
Lastly, I received this flutter peplum top in XXS regular and it fits true to size. I saw it in store last week and the smaller sizes were sold out so I was surprised that XXS regular was still available online when I went to order it.
LOFT FITTING ROOM REVIEWS
LEFT to RIGHT:
I really wanted this striped ruffle cuff top but it wasn’t available in petites to try on last week. I was finally able to try it on in XSP today but the sleeves fit snug like spandex while the body has a nice drape to it. The sleeves weren’t too short in petites like I thought they would be. I wanted to size up to SP to see how the fit compared but the sales associate couldn’t find it. Later when I walked the floor again I found SP to compare against XSP and it fit a lot longer and looser so I didn’t bother to try it on for size. I also tried on SP in the black solid version and it fit similar to XS regular as reviewed here but the sleeves were too short. Size SP of the solid black version was noticeably shorter than SP of the striped version when I held them up for a side by side comparison. Even though they seem like similar style tops they differ a bit in the fit due to the different material they used.
Mosaic Tunic Shell, size XXSP
I found this mosaic tunic shell in size XXSP hidden randomly behind some other tops. In case someone hid it there to come back to it I put it back where I found it after trying it on. It looked like it ran big so I tried it on for size and size XXSP fit me pretty well but the arm holes were cut just a bit too high/narrow on me for comfort. I’d say this top runs one size bigger so I would suggest sizing down.
Long V-Neck Cardigan, size SP
I like this long v-neck cardigan and size SP fit me pretty well length wise. The sleeves do fit a bit snug so you may want to size up if you plan to layer something under it. It looks like it’s a very popular item online since almost all sizes and colors are gone in regular missy and petite sizes.
Valley Floral Lace Bib Shell, size SP
This valley floral lace bib shell is a lovely print for fall. I’m not usually into darker prints but the contrasting print and the embroidered detail make this top very pretty and unique. The arm holes of size SP were too generous on me as you can see from the right picture so I would probably need it in size XSP for a better fit.
Boyfriend Cardigan, size XS regular
I also grabbed this boyfriend cardigan to try on for size in XS regular and I found that it runs true to size. The sleeves fit looser which should make it easier to layer underneath.
Sateen Five Pocket Legging Jeans in Marisa Fit, size 26/2P
This jerseyknit cowl neck top is such a cute cropped top. If you don’t mind the shorter length it will look great over jeans or your workout clothes. It runs true to size and is meant to be a relaxed fit.
I also tried on the sateen five pocket legging jeans in size 26/2P in Marisa fit and they run a little bit snug in the waist while the petite inseam is spot on (I”m 5′ 2 1/2″). I will have to try on the next size up in another visit to compare for sizing. Note that the legs and ankle opening are very slim which I prefer. The black color looks like it’s prone to attracting lint but they look amazing and slimming. By the time I got out of the fitting room all the black colors of these pants were almost gone from the table. I can understand every girl’s obsession for the perfect pair of black pants.
In contrast I tried on these five pocket legging jeans in Marisa fit in size 4P and these look and feel like leggings pretending to be pants. The inseam was too long on me and I had to cuff them once since they were bunching otherwise.
BANANA REPUBLIC FITTING ROOM REVIEWS
Banana Republic Sleeveless Embellished Top, size XS regular
I also stopped by Banana Republic on my way home and tried on a few things including this sleeveless embellished top. Size XS regular fits more like XSP in my opinion and the opening for your head is a bit narrow so I took my earrings off so I wouldn’t lose them as I pulled it off and on. You can see it styled by the lovely Sunny here. It’s currently 40% off online but it was full-price in store.
Banana Republic Italian Cashmere Blend Two Pocket Pullover, size XS regular
I also loved the mint color of this Italian cashmere blend pullover. This is another petite friendly sweater since size XS regular fits like XS petite. The material didn’t feel itchy at all when I tried it on. It’s currently 30% off so I’ll wait for a better sale to snap it up.
Banana Republic Pleated Ruffle Top, size XS regular
Lastly, I tried on this pleated ruffle top in size XS regular since I had previously tried on the solid black color in XSP but it ran too short and narrow across my shoulders. I wasn’t in love with the fit on me but the paisley print is very lovely.
