I saw a girl at my local store wearing the Insculpt Vest and it looked so cute on her!! She told me that she sized down and that helped the fit. I tried- and she was right! It's the perfect light layer to throw on between layers. Plus I can fill the pockets with Kleenex- cause I've had 3 colds in 6 weeks! Yuck. Anyway, I think this piece is gonna be very functional in my life. I bought it in a size 8- and I could have tried the 6, but no one likes a too tight vest. The 8 is great!
