The BEST
These are perfection: Tights that have an velvet-y opaque finish with no sheen. A waist band that smoothes and conceals and never, ever causes muffin top. So happy theses exist. Look great under form fitting skirts and dresses without a seam or bulge in sight. Please, never stop selling these!

Great dress, great price
This dress is exactly what I wanted -- an easy dress that looks approbate enough for work. The basic is better than I imagined -- substantial with a nice drape. The vneck provides a little sex-appeal to an otherwise conservative dress. I bought this on sale and it's an amazing buy. I will wear it a lot.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Doesn't meet DVF standards
I hoped this dress would be my new go-to LBD. But the fabric is this rough, crinkly fabric that is slightly sheer. Also, the deep V-neck is not low and sexy, it's too low and not wearable for me. Overall, I found the martial cheap-looking, especially the gold belt which has some threads coming apart when I received it.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Didn't fit right
So many people love this style, but it just didn't look right on me. I'm only 5'2", so that may be why -- I found the jeans too long and baggy at the ankles for a skinny ankle jean. Even with alterations, they wouldn't have the correct proportions to be flattering. DId not fit me like on the model. The hot pink color was really nice, though.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Very disappointed
I love a coated jean, a high waist... but these were too high wasted (like mom-jeans) and very stiff and small fitting. I'd say they run at least one side too small. The sheen was nice. But they were not flattering at all.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Body glove, but classic
I agree that this dress is rather "body con." It definitely runs one size smaller than what I typically take in DVF. It hugs every curve from the neck to knee, so if that makes you uncomfortable, I wouldn't recommend this dress to you. I ordered both colors, and I kept just the charcoal grey. The high neckline and conservative color balance the hugging fit, which makes it a nice piece, in my view. The purple color was pretty, but not as classic as the grey.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Too much
Like a lot of Rachel Pally, this skirt is too much fabric, too heavy, too long, too wide, etc. There's too much fabric to be flattering, and it weighs a ton. Not the easy, breezy skirt I was looking for. Even the color looked muddier and less "beachy" in person.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Not a god fabric
I usually love Theory, but the material of this dress was oddly thick and itchy. No lining, so it was rather unwearable for me.

Very pleased
I ordered two: the Gala (fuchsia) and Camel colors. The Gala is a bright, cheerful color without a hint of muddiness. Will add a pop to my winter wardrobe, and I can see myself using this a lot in spring and fall with warmer weather dresses. The Camel was darker than I had hoped -- the undertone was too brown, so I returned it. The fabric is lovely and soft, smooth. Large enough to wrap around and feel bundled, which i very important to me in a scarf. A very nice piece. Not indispensable, but on sale it is a no-brainer.

Not a useful slip
Too sheer, too baggy, too long. Didn't do anything for me. Would have kept them to sleep in , as they are soft, but they aren't particularly flattering either. Retuned both the ones I ordered.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
