After reading the reviews online of how the sizes run extremely small, I was hesitant to purchase, but since the clothes were fairly inexpensive I decided to go ahead and order anyway. I am 5"2, 110lbs and decided to get a size medium in the tops. Once they arrived I probably could've been safe with the small, but medium fit okay too. I am usually a 4 in pants and got the 7, which fit fine. They are skinny jeans though so maybe those just typically run small. The quality seems better than I was expecting given the price, and the order came EXTREMELY quickly! I placed it on a Wednesday and it arrived at my door that Saturday. Overall I am satisfied and would likely order again if I saw something I really liked.

**Quick View**

**Body Central (****www.bodyc.com****)** is a very limited website for very thin women. Their sizing is inaccurate and their choices are very, very limited. They have cute items but getting the right fit is almost impossible.

**Full View**

I love to buy trendy clothing via the internet. I loved the clothes on **Body Central (****www.bodyc.com****)** but I quickly learned that the sizing is off and that everything fits differently. Also their stock is VERY limited and, if you wear over a size 11 or 13 in junior's, forget it. There is nothing on this site that will fit you. And, the sizes run small as it is!

**The Site**

This site has a variety of trendy tops, jeans, shorts, dresses, and accessories for the young woman. The women modeling aren't kids but they seem to be in their late 20's. the styles are all in junior's sizes and run small so keep that in mind. I am a size 3 or 4 in jeans and the size 5's were snug. I am a size Medium in tops and the Larges strain and nearly burst when I wear them.

They have very few choices. Clothing comes only in one color choice usually. Sizing is off the wall. One size Medium will fit me fine and another will be way too small. Prices are decent, especially for the tops. But quality is not high. It's Wal*Mart or a bit above quality.

Shipping starts at $5.95 and goes up to well over $17.95 with no breaks and no free shipping ceilings.  Returns are accepted but, of course, shipping is not refunded.

**My Experience**

I have shopped on the site a few times and won't go back. The tops are trendy and cute. Prices are usually reasonable. But I am sick of getting clothing that doesn't fit as described or doesn't even LOOK as described. The sizes and colors are very limited and the quality isn't much better than I can get at mass-market stores for the same or lower prices.

There isn't really any advantage for me to shop on this site. While other sites may be more expensive, I find I get what I want in the fit I want with no hassles so I stay away from **Body Central** and shop at sites that are more reliable.

**My Viewpoint on** **Body Central **

Limited choices. Very small sizes. Everything fits differently. No shipping breaks for big orders. Size Large in tops is often out of stock (because very few real women wear tiny Barbie Doll clothes).

I am not impressed although I do like their styles. I look at the site and then look elsewhere for similar styles. Works for me.

***2 stars.*** This site is just too unreliable as far as sizing and quality to recommend to you.

Horrible

Comments about Body Central | BodyCentral.com:

I placed an order in December, seemed easy enough but after 3 weeks without receiving my package I tried checking the tracking # provided. It showed it was shipped via FedEx but it had just been sitting in Texas for 2 weeks. I contacted FedEx, they was unable to help because they had turned it over to USPS as requested by Body Central so I contacted USPS and they couldn't help either since the only tracking # I had was for FedEx. They advised me to contact Body Central to get the USPS tracking #. I called and emailed them numerous times. I never got a response and I always got a recording when I called which never would take me to a real person. That went on for about a week until I finally gave up. I filed a dispute because luckily I paid with PayPal. They didn't respond until February!!! Their customer service is the worst there is and the person I was finally able to talk to was very rude but ha, my package is now being delivered over a month later, they wouldn't give me my money back because I need to get the items first then mail them back to get my refund with less shipping. I think I deserve a full refund since they failed so horribly at sending my order. I am never shopping there again.

Customer Service
There is no customer service, they don't care about their customers and if your lucky enough to talk to somebody, they speak to you as if your a child and are RUDE!!!

Shipping and Returns
Took over a month to receive my order!!!!!

Nice styles, up with the trends - However, sizes run very small.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Body Central | BodyCentral.com:

If you like trendy styles, if you like to buy the latest clothing, and if you like wearing the latest fashion trends, this site is a good place to find them. The issue comes in the fact that there is limited selection (in terms of colors and sizing), and if you do not wear a size 0, 2, or 4, you are going to find the items extremely limited and hard to find. Upon only offering limited, smaller sizing,their sizes also seem to run smaller than most other brands I have worn.

I did find they had quite a bit of selection in the smallest sizes, however I couldn't wear any of these sizes. And, if you aren't extremely tiny, 5'4'' or shorter, you are going to find it is very difficult to find in to the clothing that they sell on this site as well. If not for extremely small sizing, and off sized articles of clothing, this would be a great site to find the latest styles and fashion trends when shopping for new women's fashion clothing online.

You get what you pay for

By 

from USA

Comments about Body Central | BodyCentral.com:

Overall Body Central dot com has a lot to choose from at seriously incredible prices. I was recently on a pretty tight budget and I really needed some new work pants. I did some research and came across this particular website. I have to say I was sincerely impressed with the prices. They reviews on the items were go so I was so excited. I got five pairs of dress pants for around fifty dollars. Typically it would cost me fifty dollars for one pair of pants so needless to say I was impressed. The shipping was incredibly slow. I didn't receive my items for almost two weeks. When I did finally get my items they were cheaply made. I wore a pair the next day and the button fell off after wearing the pants for only two hours. When I tried to return the pants they were final sale that I was not aware of. If your shopping on this site be prepared to get what you pay for. Also, read the small print to see if something is final sale.

Good for women's clothes

By 

from Utah

Comments about Body Central | BodyCentral.com:

While surfing sites that reviewed and recommended shopping sites, I came across bodycentral.com and found that it was a clothing site. I went looking for clothes for myself, but found that they only sell women's clothes. However, we have found some good things for my wife on here (both Christmas presents from me as well as things she has ordered for herself).

Product Pricing
Prices are pretty high to start with, but they do offer good sales that make the deals pretty reasonable. We especially like to use offers like 50% off of clearance, shopping at the end of one season for the next year. I would give them a five for normal pricing, but a nine for sales prices, so I averaged it to seven overall.

Shipping and Returns
We typically buy when they offer a good shipping deal (such as $4 flat for any order), so it can have good prices. But their regular shipping prices for shipping do seem a bit higher than a lot of other stores have.

cute products

Comments about Body Central | BodyCentral.com:

I have not personally ordered anything from bodycentral.com in a few year. Before I had my daughter i liked to go out with my friends and this website definitely had the perfect clothes for that. Not only were the clothes super trendy they were super affordable. I was able to buy two or three shirts for the price I would have spent on one shirt in other stores. The clothes I received were usually pretty thin, which a lot of people do not like because they say they will wear out faster, but I loved the this about them. Since they were thin I would not get too hot. The clothing holds up just fine to me. I have not been able to find another store that offers such cute clothing for such affordable prices. I would recommend this website to girls who like to go out to clubs or parties because the clothes are definitely club style. Most of them are not for everyday wear.

Shipping and Returns
Shipping prices are reasonable and fast.

Bodycentral.com

Comments about Body Central | BodyCentral.com:

My favorite things to shop for on bodycentral.com are the Maxi dresses and jewelry. Never the less, this website has a lot to offer. Each time I place an order, I always find a bargain. They have tons of markdowns and sales. I remember when I first signed up for an account on bodycentral.com. I immediately receive a coupon code for a discount. This website truly has it all at great prices. I will order again in the future.

Ease of Use
Very easy to browse through the image and make purchases. Check out is a breeze and it's secure.

Product Selection
They have a database of clothing, jewelry, shoes and more.

Product Pricing
The prices are very cheap. I was shocked, because the quality is so great for such a low price.

Customer Service
Customer service have always been wonderful to me. I received a damaged necklace one time, but customer service took care of it right away. I truly have nothing bad to say.

Shipping and Returns
Shipping is fast and it is very easy to return items purchased.

Stylish threads

By 

from Syracuse, New York

Comments about Body Central | BodyCentral.com:

Body Central is a very special site to me. I love their prices and I love their products as well. The pricing is very fair. The products are up to date with the current trends. The site is quite innovative and has a whole bunch of really nice, stylish trendy items. I absolutely love their high waist jeans. They also have some really cute work appropriate outfits. Their clothing is true to size and doesn't run too large or too small. Their shipping costs are about normal - although I always hate having to pay shipping costs. Their actual shipping process is a little longer than I initially expected but, their communication about your order and status changes are very timely. The actual quality of the clothing is very good for the price paid for them. There honestly isn't much that I don't like about this site. As a matter of fact, the only thing I don't like is paying for shipping charges. Every thing else is great.

Don't shop ever here

Comments about Body Central | BodyCentral.com:

This online/magazine retailer is a joke. They offer inexpensive 'nice looking' clothing but when you receive it, it has holes in them and the sizes are all over the place. Trying to return them is next to impossible. You are better off spending your hard earned money elsewhere. I can get better quality clothing at upscale second hand stores than this place. I've never been so disappointed from an online store as this one. And their customer service is terrible. Please don't shop here, it's not worth the aggravation and you will not be satisfied.

I LOVE BODY CENTRAL!

Comments about Body Central | BodyCentral.com:

I've been a member of BodyCentral.com since September 2013. I love it! I have purchased many items more than once in the past few months and they all have fit well and I have been very satisfied. Their sales are awesome! I once ordered on a flat 2-day shipping, and they delivered it on time. After washing the clothes I've gotten, they have came out the same without any rips or shrinking. I have read many bad reviews over bodycentral but I personally think that they are just awesome! I'm usually a size M, and the crop tops and dresses I have ordered have all fit correctly. Love it, and I highly recommend them!

I Love Body Central!

Comments about Body Central | BodyCentral.com:

I love this place! I found out about it through a catalogue I got in the mail (don't know how they got my address or name but am so glad!) and I have made 3 purchases so far. I only had one problem and that was the fact that I ordered something and wasn't told it was sold out which was disappointing. But they have amazing sales and great quality clothes. My best deal so far was a 5 dollar skull dress free shipping and no tax!! Keep in mind the clothes don't run very small. I am very small but usually have to wear at least a size medium at most stores because their clothes run small. But here, all my small sizes have fit. In fact, I ordered a size 5 jeans because I was worried their sizing was tiny and the jeans were actually too big on me. (I am generally a 5) They also have really nice shoes. Highly recommend!
