When it says crop, it MEANS crop.
I'm not a fan of showing my stomach off, so when I buy crop shirts I tend to go for a larger size to keep the fit comfortable/roomy but stylish. I am usually a 10-12. I ordered this shirt in size L in the hope of achieving the fit I like, but the crop was way too short. The colour on the photos is also a little misleading - it's definitely more of a pale blue than a blue grey. Personally, I didn't mind that. It's a very cute shirt, I just didn't like how it looked on me so I returned it. I was going to try the shirt in a size XXL, but Skinnydip refunded me for the cost of the shirt as they said that size was sold out. If you're going to chance it and are not comfortable with your whole midriff being on show, definitely go a couple of sizes up.
