Size down; stunning print
I'm usually ban 8-10 US top in most brands, but a 12-14 in DVF due to wide shoulders, so I ordered the L. It was much too big. I exchanged for the M, which is a loose fit but fits like the model here shows. The print is stunning. The fabric is heavier than I expected. I can see layering this with tights and a turtleneck in winter.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Quality didn't match price
The idea of this top is cute, but the quality isn't there for the price. The white material is cheap looking and shows every bump and the nude bra underneath. I returned the item.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Heavy material, watch the pleats
The material here is very heavy, which results in the pleats on the front creating a shape which some women might not find flattering. It can be hard to see in the photos, but if you know to look for it, you'll see what I mean. The shorts are large to size. I am typically an 8 on the bottom or a 30 in jeans. The 6 is a perfect fit. I think they're elegant for shorts and found they looked best styled with a silk button-down shirt.

5 starts even though I returned it
I bought this and the perforated shorts thinking if I had a matching jacket it would dress up the shorts enough to wear to the office. The jacket is very casual looking, though well made, and though the items matched, I couldn't see wearing them together so I returned the jacket (couldn't justify paying designer price for how little I was likely to wear it). But it was a great jacket, if something more sporty is what you're looking for. Very large to size. I am typically a 10 on top. The 6 was a perfect fit.

Not the loose fit shown
I have lots of Helmut Lang. I am a US size 8 and all my Helmut Lang sweaters and tees are M and fit as shown on the models. I ordered the M in this, expecting the loose fit shown and described. The M fits, but its a snug fit. Other than that, a nice tank but overpriced for a basic.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Cute but no support
I ordered this to wear under a sheer knit tank where I knew my bra would show through and wanted something that looked less like a typical bra. I am a 34D and ordered the L. The L fits, but there is no support. I kept it because it still works for what I needed and actually looks cute and sporty under the sweater instead of like just my bra showing through. Overpriced for what it is, but I couldn't find anything similar that had the same look.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

love this so much I bought a backup
I'm usually a medium in Helmut Lang. Bought the large in this because I'm broad through the shoulders and larger busted and it was the right fit. I find this so indispensable that I bought one a few months ago and just bought another to have as a backup, despite the high price for a tank top.

Love this sweater but beware of bottom
I own a number of Helmut Lang sweaters and purchased this in my usual size. I love the sweater. My usual size fits me like the fit shows on the model. The one thing I would warn of, though, is the band around the bottom has no stretch, which you can't tell from the picture. I'm tall, broader through the shoulders and narrower through the hips, so this wasn't a problem for me, but if you are shorter and the sweater is going to hang longer, or you are wider through the hips, this might not fit or hang as you would like.

Really unflattering
I own a number of Helmut Lang tops. I ordered this in my usual size. It ft, but the cut was so unflattering. The dropped front created an optical illusion that made me look like I was well into a pregnancy (which I am not, nor am I big around the middle). I returned the item.

Size, colour and shear
I have a number of Helmut Lang sweaters, all good fits in medium. I ordered the medium in this and it was very large to size (there's also a lot of stretch in it). The colour of the front panel as pictured on every screen I looked at (computers, smart phone) appeared a muted burgundy. The actual colour is vivid red mixed with black. The sweater is very shear. Between the shearness and the red colour in the middle panel , the overall effect of the sweater was like I had a rash over my front. I returned and did not reorder. Very disappointed because typically love Helmut Lang sweaters.
