It was the 1950's when the icy waters of San Francisco Bay drove inveterate surfer Jack O'Neill to develop the neoprene armor that is the stuff of today's wetsuits. Several permutations preceded the arrival of neoprene, including WWII frogmen suits lined with long underwear and later, glued-together pieces of closed-cell foam. Having solved the problem of keeping surfers warm with varying thicknesses of neoprene, O'Neill went on to enhance his wetsuit designs with advancements like the Z.E.N. zip closure system, Smoothskin, Super Seal Glideskin, Plasma Knee Pa ...

I knew I should have purchased size S, but it was unavailable, and I got an M. It's big for me, but not extremely. I'd say if you are between sizes, go up. Generally, nice shorts to wear on the top of bikini, very soft fabric and bright color.

When they state lightweight material they mean really lightweight, the fit is quirky as well. Might work for a very young person who doesn't mind the revealing fabric. The sizing is definitely for juniors, short torso and not very curvy.

The cotton cloth is thick and the stitching is nice. I like the length of the skirt. But the dress was just too poofy on the sides for my body type. It looked like a potato sack on me. This dress is for a skinny girl. I returned it.

I love this dress! The color scheme works very well with the pattern, making it subtle but still interesting. I ordered an XL because that was the only size left though I am usually in the medium range for dresses, but it works well as a flowy, oversized summer dress- looks great belted at the waist. Very soft and comfortable material ideal for a balmy summer evening. The slit up the side is tasteful and very flattering, and the slip underneath reaches a suitable length (I find that sometimes the slips underneath dresses like this can be absurdly short relative to the length of the dress). The criss-cross pattern on the back is flattering and interesting, but could be a deal breaker if you are worried about exposed bra straps. I am not exceedingly conscious of that so it doesn't bother me that my bra is slightly visible in the back, but the issue could also be easily solved by wearing a non-standard bra, like a bralette. Highly recommended!

The leaf/tree print on this tank is great! The fabric is soft and it has a good fit - not fitted, but not so loose that it looks billowy. I got it in winter and have worn it under a sweater or jacket. Really love the print, with they had it with sleeves, but the tank is fine and will transition nicely into summer.
