Poor fit
As other reviewers have said, this dress runs about one size small and is pretty narrow. I am usually a 0-2 in DVF dresses, and the 2 in this dress clung way too tightly to my hips. However, the sleeves/shoulders are cut kind of funny and are almost too big. If I sized up I think that would be even worse. The sleeves were not 3/4 on me like on the model; they went all the way down to my wrists. Also the sheer top for some reason makes my shoulders look really broad. I didn't find the dress very flattering. Disappointed because I love DVF! But this one is going back. For reference I am 5'4", 120 lbs with a petite/athletic build.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Pretty but very low cut
Just got this dress in the mail and I am unsure whether I will keep it. It seems well-made and the silk is very nice. The pattern is maybe a little grandma-ish in person. The fit is true to size and it is very comfortable. EXCEPT that the neckline is so low cut and it gapes so that I just don't know quite what to do with it. It totally exposes my bra, and if I go braless then it totally exposes my breasts. A blank tank underneath would ruin the look of the dress. Maybe double-sided tape? But even with double-sided tape, the plunging V doesn't fit very well with the modest/traditional look of the rest of the dress. I mean, this practically cuts all the way to my waist.... Unfortunate because I love the rest of the dress. For reference I am 5'4", 120 lbs, size 2-4, I ordered a small.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected
