Finally, after the internet went into melt down over the launch of the Ivy Park collection I was able to get my hands on a couple of the pieces from the collection so I could find out if all the hype was necessary. 

Okay, so i've featured the grey ivy park tee and shorts however, I did also order the grey sports bra and the ivy park leggings however, even though all the sizes were the same I literally couldn't even get the leggings on past my knees (thick girl problems) and the sports bra decided it would cut the circulation off my boobs and squish them right down, NOT COOL! 

So my first thoughts on the above two items were that the sizing was a little bit off, and although I am a size 10 I just couldn't pull them off, intact I couldn't get them on!! which was disappointing. 

However, I then tried the tee and shorts on and they fit perfectly. So comfortable and easy to move in, the tee has a round neck and short sleeves and is a great fit. And the shorts weren't too short and I think were actually quite flattering. Perfect alternative to a pair of leggings, especially if you're training and in the gym. 

I styled them a couple of ways, firstly with a pair of socks and sliders, I know what you're thinking, but I think it looks cool and relaxed as well as pair of Nike trainers. 

The size I purchased in the shorts and tee was a size small. 

Overall I found the collection to be very reasonably priced and with such a selection to choose from you're definitely going to find something suited to you. I would advise checking the sizing and if possible visit a local Topshop store so you can try them on. I found my local store had so much of the collection available that I kind of wish I had waited and not placed an order online so soon! 

Get The Look 

The socks i'm wearing are by Arthur George and they're the original Dash Doll socks I picked up from the New York store. Unfortunately they're unique to that store and you can't get them online but i've linked some alternatives below. 

The below items are those in which I ordered but unfortunately didn't fit. 

 What do you think of this collection? Did you manage to get your hands on any of the pieces? If so what did you think of the sizing?
