I'm about to make my first PUG purchase and would really like to buy the Marilyn top in both black and white. My measurements are 34-24-34 and I'm torn in between buying a XS or S. According to the sizing chart, if I got a XS it'd fit like a dream at the waist and hips but be two inches too tight at the chest. A S would fit the chest fine but would be baggy in the waist and hip area. I plan to wear the top with high waisted pants or skirts, so the hips aren't much of a problem, but I like shirts to have a tight fitting waist.
What's everyone's experience with the Marilyn top? Would I be OK buying an XS or would it be far too tight across the chest? Or should I play it safe and get a S, and get it taken in at the waist if it bothers me?
Sydney, you are so helpful! I am facing a similar dilemma as Katrina and your answers helped so much! I know you already replied to my swim suit post, but I was wondering if you modeled any one-pieces for PUG when you did your shoot with them? If so, what size did you wear?
You look amazing in the above selfie, by the way. I wish I looked that good waking up lol
Almost always a small. In bikinis I wear a small on top and a medium on the bottom usually.
I actually wore the Dots Amore one piece during the shoot...but our sample was kind of messed up (the gathers weren't sewn properly on one side).
Also I looked flat as a board in it and constantly had to pull it up - I can't imagine getting it wet with it being as heavy and slinky as it was. I'm glad Masuimi reshot in the swimsuit because I did it no justice.
I know there was one more one piece I shot...because Masuimi's epic boobs were too much for it. For the life of me I can't remember what it looked like but it fit. If it pops up on the site remind me about it because off of the top of my head I don't remember.
That selfie is hiding my breakout at the moment aha thanks tho.
Awesome! Thanks again for the advice. It helps a lot!
Pshhh. I don't see any breakout! And you are welcome. :)
Thank you so much for posting this question Katrina and a big thank you Sydney for chiming in with your own experience & insiders info!
I'm a 36" in the bust (used to be so much bigger... sigh ;) ) so an XS is probably just a little too small but based on what you're saying I think a think a small should be perfect and I wouldn't have to go up to a medium. I think I'll be going with the Marilyn in Aqua for sure then.
Also yes Masuimi's boobs ARE epic aren't they :)
Hi everyone! Just wanted to post a little update. I ended up purchasing the Marilyn top in black and white in XS and the peasant top in white in XS. I ordered them on Saturday and they arrived in Canada by Monday (!!!) but I missed the delivery and only got ahold of them on Wednesday.
The fit: the white peasant top and black Marilyn top fit like a glove. The white Marilyn top is a teensy bit more snug but I think I just need to wear it in a bit. It's still comfortable to wear, it just feels slightly tighter than the black Marilyn top? Anyway, I will try to post photos soon. :)
Thanks for the update, I'd love to see the photos as they always help!
