From day to night
I bought this whilst looking for a dress that would take me from day time in the office (smart blazer or cardi over the top) to after work activities. This dress fits the bill. A couple of things: - The heavy jersey material collects fluff fairly easily - The fit is smaller than usual. I'm normally a 2/xs and went with the size S. The tightness of the dress is similar to how it appears on the model.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Skinny jeans - not leggings
I ordered these in both the black (onyx) and the dark blue (Skye) and found that both are more like skinny jeans rather than leggings. The stretch and fabric is quite similar to the Angel Ankle jeans which I have also, so I think the title is deceiving. I returned both since I wanted leggings rather than skinny jeans. If you're after a true jegging, I would go with the Citizen Avedon Slicks or the AG legging jeans.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Skinny long legs only
I have these in the white and I must say they have completely different effects on the legs. I get a lot of compliments on my white jeans because they look crisp, fresh and classy. Easy to dress up and down. These light blue jeans are more casual. They material is slightly different to the white, making it a little less comfortable (thickness? Amount of stretch? Unsure). Also, the colour is quite flat, meaning it doesn't do much for your legs in terms of flattery. If you've got skinny, long legs, I'm sure they'd work fine. Not for me - returned.

Best Herve purchase ever
This dress is amazing. I stuck with my usual size and bought the black/white combo in an XS (normally size 2, XS) and it fit perfectly. It has just the right amount of tightness (i.e. can still breathe and eat!) to give you that va-voom effect whilst being comfortable at the same time! The two-tone effect is very slimming, whittling down your sides and also providing interest around the decolletage.

Beautiful but itchy
The dress is a showstopper but there are a couple of things to note: - True to size - Gold weave may irritate some. I'm fairly tolerant but even this felt a bit scratchy - Polished gold plated belt looks a little cheap and will definitely tarnish over time Overall though, it is definitely a one of a kind dress.

Cute and short
I love the dress and got a lot of compliments at work on it. I got my usual DVF size 2 and it fit perfectly everywhere but I found it a little tight in the arm hole. Thus, I gave it only a 4/5 It looks pretty demure on the model but I think it is more striking in real life - the contrast of the leaves against the black. Good dress to take you from the office to after work drinks.

Slinky comfortable tee
Such a comfy tee with an edgy zipper detail. Definitely true to size and is semi-sheer as the description indicates. It does stretch a little on first wear. The neckline on mine looks lower on me than the model.

Thick material, not as much stretch
Because of the special metallic coating of the dress, the material is quite a fair bit thicker than the normal Herve Leger dresses and as such, it doesn't give as much as normal. Thus, I've rated it "smaller than expected". I would take your usual size or one size up if you're in between sizes. I'm a 2/4 and I think a S would have been about right. The metallic sheen is not very forgiving and will highlight any bumps or lumps more so than a non-metallic colour, so make sure you have good underwear and no bits you want to hide. It could be a stunning dress on the right body type; sadly, mine isn't it.

Simple and cute
I'm generally a size 2/4 and wear a 32B/34 bra. I ordered this bikini in a P, both top and bottoms. I agree with the previous reviewer that the cups are small. However, they fit me perfectly but for someone larger than a B, I'd recommend going a size up. Contrary to what the previous reviewer said about the padding in the cups, the padding is most definitely REMOVABLE. There is a small slit in a corner of the lining from which you can pull the padding out as you desire. The ties are quite long, which is good, but the gold beads at the end of the ties can be uncomfortable when you're leaning on them, much like how it'd feel to sit on a marble.
