Since the bra went on sale for even less, I decided to give the Lexi set a shot. Had emailed Lulalu a while back to see what size would be appropriate, and they said an xs (my hip measurement is 34.25 for reference, generally wear a 24 or 25 in jeans depending on the brand). So I got the xs. The front is very cute, no cutting in on the elastic, but the elastic does cut into my rear a bit in a not so flattering way. I don't blame them though (their response was very kind and also prompt). This is not the first time that a size guide has told me that an xs would be appropriate only to have it not be. But then last time I got an S from another brand to be on the safe side it was too big! So it's always a roll of the dice for me. Besides, I'm not actually sure that an S would've worked for me considering that I wouldn't want the waist elastic to be any looser. It's probably just that the cut isn't great for my body shape. I have narrow-ish hips but with a proportionally fuller rear. Maybe they'd work if my hips were the same measurement but wider and flatter? I dunno. They are very cute though, and I bet that the elastic will stretch out a bit with time anyhow.
