For someone who is a size 0 or 00 in brands with vanity sizing, I was wearing a size 38 and sometimes 40 (form-fitting) in Dolce & Gabbana dresses.
D&G dresses are gorgeous in that they are so well made and accentuate (sometimes non-existent) curves.
These are some of my favorites:

I wear a 40 in this style
I am “boy-shaped” (gosh I hate that term) in that my waist to hip ratio is close to 0, especially from the front. I believe a 0.7 WHR is considered desirable as classic beauties like Marilyn Monroe had those proportions. In any case, I digress. My point is: This dress makes me look curvy, with a defined waist and hip. It’s incredible. Not to mention the color looks great on my Asian olive skin tone.

My only problem with this dress is that I would have fit in a size 38 (however snugly) if the bust were bigger. I think this would be perfect for someone with a smaller bust (bandwidth, not necessarily cup size).
Next up is also a bustier-styled dress.

This dress is also very versatile for day-time activities. It has slightly more stretch than the previous dress. It has been reviewed positively by other bloggers in the past.
Has anyone had similar experiences with D&G? I would love some input as I am not sure if I hit my personal jackpot with D&G or if D&G is flattering on everyone.
