I am a curvy 5'10", 185#, and usually wear a women's pant size 14. I have Arc'Teryx bibs in size L that fit quite nicely. However, I ordered these in an XL. They fit perfectly and size L would have been too tight. I ordered the purple with teal zippers; they are definitely on the steazy side with the contrasting color, but they're fun! The insulation is nice as I bought them specifically for resort skiing. Overall I think they look and fit great. And you know how hard it is to find fabulous and functional ski pants!

I ordered this dress in an XL. (I'm 5'10", around a size 14 on bottom and 10-12 on top). The fit around the hips is on me is tight. Tight like a dress you would wear going out to party in, not necessarily daytime appropriate. The dress does hit mid-thigh which is a pretty short on a tall girl. The top of the dress however is lovely. The cowl neck and cap sleeves is super cute and flattering. The real clincher I found though was that the dress is wicked see-through on the bottom. A slip is definitely necessary or boy-cut shorts or something to keep things left to the imagination. I'm not sure if yet if I'll return it or rock it late-night style.

I bought these thinking they would be great resort pants. Stylish and roomy, insulated and toasty warm for frigid chairlift rides. I am 5'10" and wear a 14 in womens and ordered the XL. The waist fit just fine, but the legs were HUGE and the length long. I did not find the cut very flattering at all. I'm not sure if the large would have worked given the fitted waist, so I sent them back and will try something else.

I bought this shirt for my fiance in hopes that he would ski a little more like a beater. Instead he uses it as an underlayer in the backcountry and loves it. The medium is a bit smaller than a "normal" medium, but it's still wicked cool and hilarious. Please make a girl version!

I just bought these as a sturdy hiking shoe and think they are awesome. I wear a women's size 11 so finding a shoe that fits comfortably and doesn't make my foot look gigantic is hard to find. This shoe took no time to break in and I really like the way it looks; the colors aren't too girly and the burly sole is great on steep trails and slick, wet roots. It's awesome to be able to buy a shoe online without trying it on and have it look great and fit fantastically.

I bought this skirt in a Medium even though I usually wear a Large (size 12-14). It's super cute and snug and sexy. Ordering the medium also meant it's a bit shorter (I'm 5'10") I do recommend ordering a size down nonetheless. The black is really versatile and flattering. The A-line works great with those who are curvy with pronounced hips like myself. My only concern is that the black will fade after washings making it that gross faded black color. On the whole, for such a casual skirt it gets a lot of attention.

I bought these in cappucino/brown and absolutely love them. Like the previous comment, they fog. (I've only noticed this when skinning uphill). I get a ton of compliments on them and they fit my face really well. (round med/lg face). The best thing about them is that they cover a large area and they are not so dark you can't wear them inside. They are perfect for Alaska as the sun isn't so intense. Skiing though in bright sun, I'd recommend a darker lens. Hungover and having breakfast--they're perfect! I have a girlfriend who bought the gray print/hot pink ones, and she doesn't like them nearly as much as the brown ones I have. Overall, I highly recommend them.
