GORGEOUS
Gorgeous top. It runs a little small but still fits true to size (I ordered an xs). I wore a plain white banded bra with no boning or true support and it worked well with the sheer material. Expensive for what it is although it is gorgeous.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

CUTE SUMMER DRESS
Great dress. I am an xs in most all clothing and purchased this dress in an xs. It fits although was comfortably snug (not tight though). There is some pull to the dress so I stretched a little bit and it fits perfectly. I am 5 feet 105 lbs and the length worked well for me (no alterations needed).
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

BEAUTIFUL & SIMPLE
I must say I was thrilled with this purchase. I unfortunately just reviewed a Young Fab. & Broke long, simple, white dress that I had to give a poor review to which also cost more than 2x this beautiful dress. I LOVE IT!! I purchased the xs and it fit me as it appears on the model even though I am only 5 feet tall/105 lbs. I was worried I would have to hem this dress although I do not with a high heel. There is room to move and work with the waist if one is short to avoid a length issue. The top has an inner bra if one chooses to not wear a bra and it has a nice fit on top. The lower portion is slimming and very pretty front and back. Much can be accessorized with this dress which makes it a keeper!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

HORRIBLE
I have to say that YF&B dresses are of the cutest design and yet of the poorest quality. This dress has a top that is twisted at the seam on the waist and doesn't lay properly. The more you try to align it to the skirt, the more it twists incorrectly. The dress is sheer as depicted in the profile which is correct for the lower portion and it nicely offsets the inner skirt. Although, the inner dress has seams as does the outer portion both of which are NOT matched up or tacked together. The seams are rope-like and bubble thru the material for a visual of 4 seams noticed. This makes for a dress that looks horribly cheap - at a high price for what it is. It is an adorable dress although not worthy of going out to dinner on a summer vacation for which I had hoped it would be perfect. The price of YF&B is not worthy of the quality nor have my past purchases from this brand proved to be of good quality. This is my 4th purchase from the designer and it will be my last.

Simpe and Sexy
As many Helmut pieces are, this dress is simple and sexy too. It doesn't appear overly special, but it looks lovely when wearing. The top of the dress is well made and one does not necessarily need a bra if that is the preference. I belted the top w/a very thin black belt as the front part does pleat as shown in the picture although when watching the video, it does not bellow out too badly and that is why I kept the dress. It is pricy as some Helmut pieces are although I purchased on a promo and I am happy with the purchase. I am 5 feet tall and did not need to alter length, which was another plus.

VERY CUTE
This dress I purchased in a size 0 and although it fits and I like it very much, it is still too big in the mid portion. The video gives a good indication of how wide the side looks while wearing the dress. I am typically a size 2 and sized down based on the video and it was the correct decision. I kept the dress b/c it is great on a very hot day and the color combo is very pretty w/the black lace. The material is well made and the dress will hold up. I am short and also purchased b/c I am only 5 feet tall and I would not have the alter. All in all, this is a very nice, well made dress.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
