Color looks like photos! One out of two shipments - my other product hasn't arrived yet - I'm pretty satisfied. I'm 5'7" and 120lbs, I have a small bust so I ordered a S. Was worried before putting it on, looked a little too large but fits pretty well. The tie is just a separate piece of fabric, the tube top is one closed piece, and I can't tell what side of the bottom is the front but I like it and would recommend! Yes bottoms are v cheeky and highwaisted!
