I love this sweater
Great sweater with asymmetrical hem. Looks great with straight skirts and dresses and with cropped pants and boots. I love that it's so lightweight too--very much a year round piece.

Elegant & Easy!
I am between sizes, and only the smaller was available...so ordered it with some worry. The smaller size fit perfectly, and does not cling nor hang without any shape--it is just so well cut. It seems as if there is not much to it, but I love simple elegance that is a bit edgy or different, which I think this one is. I love the lightweight fabric (not sheer at all except for hem) and the diagonal sheer hemline. So easy to wear casual or dress it up slightly for more than casual!

needs a belt
When I first tried this on, I thought it hung like a bag, I am only 5'3, but once I put a belt on it, it looked really lovely, especially with a heel. So if you are petite, may need a belt. Also, I ordered a 2, but could have probably gone with the 0. The belt gives it a nice fit and drape. The fabric is light and not see through, except at the hem, which is a bit sexy.

looks better on model than in person
I usually love Helmut Lang, but this is not on of my favorite styles: I agree with the other review that the dress runs quite large. I always wear US 4, but this time it's too loose and shapeless. Also the dress on me (5'7) looks much longer than depicted in picture. The wrinkled linen like fabric is nice for summer, but I disliked the silver-tone side zip as too bold. The dress on model looks really cool, so I had a higher expectation. This will be one of my rare Shopbop returns ....

really nice summer dress
I am glad I read the other reviews. I am 5'7"ish and normally take a 6 in pants and an 8 on top--so most often an 8 in dresses. But the reviews made me feel that the 6 would probably work fine--and so it did. It fits perfectly (I don't think it's at all too long on me, though of course it's a little longer than on the model, who is 5'11"). And though it looks fine with a belt on me, personally I prefer it without. But I am rather broad shouldered, and look taller than I am. Petites might have trouble with this. I love it, though!

Goddess
This dress is so sensual and classic, and there is something so relaxed about its elegance... I can't wait to wear it on summer nights. The material is such that it can be dressed up or down. I'm a huge fan of Helmut Lang's entire "vortex" line, and the material is the same as other pieces in that range.

elegant and unique
bought it for a formal occasion and paired up with a pair of nude color high heels from Louboutin. It worked quite well. elegant and unique, the cutting and the material of the dress separates it from all the other black dresses. I'm 5"7 and 120lbs and bought a Petite. Fits well except that the string on the back cuts into my shoulder a little bit.

Great fit and fabric
I love the fabric of this tank, it is so smooth and silky. The fit is really nice: it follows the body curves, but it isn't too tight. Beautiful finishing. The curved hem is very flattering.

Statement dress, just okay
As with most of Helmut Lang pieces the fabric is very sheer - you'll need a slip or tights on the lower half. The dress is interesting, I don't see it being something you pull out for a dressy occasion or a casual occasion, it falls somewhere between. One big drawback is the pattern placement - there is a blotch right above the bust in the centre of the dress that looks like a stain. Every time I've put the dress on I look closely to see if indeed that's what it is but it's the pattern. Overall, an expensive sometime dress that is comfortable and will turn heads.

Nice Dress
I was unsure as to whether I should stick to my usual xs or get a small. With no other reviews I guessed on xs. I think it's perfect. It's loose enough in the bum that you don't need to worry about it being clingy.

Great staple with an edge
I am going to get a stack of wear out of this one. It combines a clean looking white shirt that will be great for work with a bit of an edge. I love the back! While it's long and will hide any imperfections in that area it is incredibly flatterring ie. doesn't add kg's, and is unique. Exactly what I was expecting.

Chic go-to
Looks just as great with hot pants and sneakers for weekend afternoons in the city as it does with slacks for work. Lovely tailoring and quality like all Helmut Lang pieces.

A bit of a strange fit. The back has darts that coupled with the way the bottom is cut a kind of balloon effect in the back waist area. It seems to be cut smaller on bottom than in the middle and with the dart on the top of the back yolk it bags out in the middle over that area you do not want larger. I think if you have a very slight figure it would be better. Quality is really great, as usual with this brand. Beautiful wrinkled cotton fabric. I would keep it if I didn't look so awful in it.
