I am about a US size 4 or 6 in most clothing sold in the United States. The first order I made with playful promises, I ordered items to match that sizing and ended up with pieces that were way too small for me. Size 8 panties were the way to go for my figure, so keep that in mind if you are wavering between sizes. As far as the individual items go, I have been blown away by the quality. I have panties, bras, and a garter, and they are VERY high quality -- lovely against the skin, beautiful to look at, and easy to wear with other lingerie you already own. I plan to buy much more from playful promises!
