I am 5'4" and usually wear a size 4 clothing. I ordered a size medium in this tank because I struggle with belly bulge after 3 babies and didn't want a skin tight tank. The medium is actually a little too loose for a triathlon fit for me, I should have ordered a small for more compression and fit. Being too large, the tank rides up on my belly and just accentuates my bulge! Just while trying on this tank, I was constantly pulling it down to reposition it. The length of the shirt is pretty average on length as it is not one of the longer tri tanks. It does not go down on the hips but hits at waistline. Colors are pretty (I got the flash blue) and the fabric is thin, as most tri tanks are. Seems like nice quality, but just doesn't fit right on my body type.
