Get into the DETAILS!
The details of this set are CRAZY! At first glance you think the ornaments/beads/appliques are delicate and would not hold up to "wear and tear" or much movement, but it's another Merabi purchase that is a win! I was shocked at how well crafted this set was. I thought I would for sure crush the details when I sat down, or they would loosen, or unravel, but the set held up through hours of adventure. Most importantly the intricacy is beautiful and it's a definite showstopper. For reference I am 5'4, 130 lbs +/-, 32C, and very slender. For the top I got an XS because at the time the size S was out of stock. To my surprise the XS fit my bust exactly to the mark. There is no side bulging or tightness. I got lucky! The bottom skirt I opted for a S (because S is my usual Merbabi size) and I am happy because the fit is excellent!
