First of all, I absolutely love this purchase. It looks as how I imagined it to look, and the fabric used is top quality (in my opinion). However, the stitching where the bands meet other fabric pieces is weak---just a single line. I'm actually a medium for panties, but since I'm a small for bras, I ordered this in size small. So now there are portions in my bottom where the stitches went loose. I'll be bringing the bottom to my tailor to get it properly stitched. I would still recommend this piece though. Maybe just buy the right size for you based on your size in panties.
