Nice colors
The red is a beautiful color, an orangey-red. The blue is a navy blue, darker than I expected. These fit long, and quality is excellent. I returned them because they are too similar to some other tanks I have, but if you're in need of some basics they're an excellent option. The style is similar to Rick Owens tanks, though obviously colors and fabric differ (these are semi-sheer; not as sheer as Rick Owens). I suggest ordering your true size -- I tried small and xsmall, and the xsmall was perfect (5'4", 110 lb, 31" bust).
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Beautiful color, fits true to size
This is a gorgeous dark taupe/brown/gray color. Fit is true to size -- I have another Raquel Allegra layering tank dress that I sized up in to avoid the skin-tight look and make it more work appropriate, but after wearing a handful of times it has stretched, and handwashing/line drying can't get it back to its original size. I recommend ordering true to size and expecting the first few wears to be tighter. Due to the fabric and care, it will fit more loosely over time. Also, the fabric is not sheer. I do layer this under long shirts and sweaters to dress it up and make it office appropriate, but it could be worn alone on weekends or other casual settings.

Sizing?
This is one of the more frustrating dresses I've ever tried on. I bought the XS and S and tried one on immediately after the other. Then went back to the first. And the second. Over and over. I could NOT tell the difference in sizing between the XS and S despite trying both on multiple times, with the exception that the S was slightly longer. For reference, I'm 5'4" and 110-115 lb. The color (tan) was also a strange shade. I tried on several cream cardis and a brown cardi, and the shade clashed with all of them. I also didn't like how it looked with dark brown or grey tights... The good points, though, are that when worn without tights or cardigans, the dress was very pretty. The tan color looked good against my pale skin, and I'm sure it would look great with leather sandals in the summer. The dress has a nice cut, good neckline, and good overall shape. Neither side was super flattering for my backside

New favorites!
These are my new favorite tights. They're soft and mostly opaque. Love the pattern, and the grey is a good shade, not too dark or too blue like some cheaper versions I've found. The waistband is extremely comfortable. I have a few pairs of Wolford tights that aren't quite as comfortable as these, and based on my experience with other expensive tights, I expect these to last more than a few years, making them well worth the extra cost. I'm 5'4" and around 110-115 lb. I bought the Medium and like the fit; not sure how these compare with other Falke tights though.
