Surprisingly Comfortable
FIRST the RTR staff was absolutely amazing. One of the size for the dress I had originally ordered was damaged by the previous renter. They allowed me to pick another dress free of charge and had it to me within hours! This dress held everything in! Although it was tight, it was super comfortable. I didn't feel like I had to "suck it in" all night! The length was definitely appropriate for a wedding (I'm 5'10 so this can be difficult to find). However, I do feel like it was a little too much boob for a wedding. This was a GREAT dress!

The process couldn't have been easier.
This dress was so comfortable! I worried about the process for weeks. All went very smoothly! I received many compliments on the dress. The Herve Leger dresses fit like spanx. It's amazing!!

Very sexy, classy dress
I'm usually in between a medium and a small. The medium had way too much extra material in the back like it had been stretched out. The length on the small was still great so ended up wearing the smaller size.

Sexy, but not too Sexy
From the second I put this dress on, I knew I didn't want to even try the back up dress on. Very comfortable, hugged all the right places.

Loved this dress! :)
Loved the dress! I didn't pick this dress initially, but the dress I originally ordered was damaged so I had to pick another one out. I ended up liking this dress even more then my original one!! Fits like a dream, good combo of classy and sexy, and actually comfortable! Totally loved it! Would love to own it!!

Tight in all the right places
As others have stated this dress is super thick but in a good way. Its like a built in corset and even helps give the ladies a lift. The length was great for me, long enough to not creep all night but short enough to not feel stuffy. I will say the dress did bunch a bit at my butt, otherwise I barely even noticed it was on as it felt like a second skin. I will definitely rent another Herve Leger!

I felt so glamorous all evening!
This dress fit like a glove. I am 5'7" and weigh 126lbs, and wore a size small. I wore the dress to a good friend's wedding and I received so many compliments! The dress could not have fit more perfectly, it felt like it was made for my body! It was body hugging in all the right places, but I was still able to move and dance all night long. I truly felt so glamorous in this dress, it could not have been more perfect for the evening!

Tons of compliments on this dress. Love that it's the perfect LBD with a little twist.
Dress fit great, but was quite stretched out. Herve dresses are typically almost impossible to put on (like the additional dress that I rented), but clearly this one may have seen a few too many renters. Gorgeous conservative dress with just a tiny bit of cleavage and tightness for a bit of covert sexiness. I'm 5'8" and the length went well below my knee, as well. Shorter renters may way to pin it up a bit for the night, or wear super high heels.

Wore this to a Fashion Show and received a lot of compliments. Again....under-stated sexy which I love about HL!!! The accent color is more of a rich plum and isn't as dark as it appears online. Didn't need spanx or a bra (36DD) and didn't worry about things being out of place the entire evening! Definitely recommend for a dinner party as well! Hopes this helps :o)

perfect dress for looking sophisticated and sexy but not enough to outshine the beautiful bride!!
I rented this dress because of the contrast and design on the back. It's very flattering and gives the illusion of a waist and hips for a gal like me: I'm top heavy (32C), have a short torso, and my waist and hips are about the same in width, so there's not much curve there, but the contrast and detail made it appear that way. It holds everything in enough that you don't have to wear a bra, but I do recommend pasties for cold nights... only issue was that the sleeves seemed a bit stretched and I noticed in photos from the side that you almost see the shape of my breast through the armhole. Other than that, it still very suitable and appropriate for a wedding with kids and sexy enough to impress the boyfriend :-)

The dress arrived the morning of the day I was supposed to receive it. I was perfect, they even sent me Hollywood tape, but i didn't need it.
I received compliments all night long! my husband loved it and was so proud that his woman was one of the hot chics of the night! I told my sister in law the dress was rented and she immediately joined RTR.

I felt amazing in this dress. Received several compliments on the dress.
I love this dress! I'm pear-shaped, so it was a little big in the waist, but fit nicely everywhere else. Fun & sexy...I will definitely rent more from this designer in the future.

I rented this dress and sinful cinnamon for a NYE party. Both dresses were beautiful & sexy, but this one seemed unique & effortless. This dress will enhance the bust, so your eyes are drawn upward. As a small B, this dress gave me so much cleavage! I was feeling a little shy about that at first, but got over it pretty quickly. The color blocking, subdued colors, and length of the dress, give it an even balance between sexy, modern, and classy. I accepted the offer to have one of the RTR stylists surprise me with a matching accessory rental for $15. They surprised me with the "Through the Looking Glass bracelet by Badgley Mischka. I did not wear it, because I didn't think it matched well with this dress. I ended up wearing darker, gunmetal jewelry, chandelier earrings & chunky bracelet.

perfect party dress
This dress fit absolutely perfectly! I went to several parties/venues the night I wore it and felt amazing. My date even mentioned that all eyes were on me everywhere we went! I wore it with black pumps and drop earrings - simple accessories. Also, I have never been able to wear anything without a bra for at least 10 years, but with this dress I didn't need one! This dress does wonders for the figure! I would rent it again in a heartbeat.

O....M.....G!
This dress is simply amazing! The way it made my body look for a night out in Vegas was simply miraculous! My husband was impressed, and said even he could tell it was a special design. I loved the contrast color for waist definition on my fairly straight bod. My friend said it was the first time she had even seen me look so curvy! Would rent again in a heartbeat.

Not my size
This dress is so pretty! I got the small since they did not have an XS and I am sure it is true to size but it was big on me since I wear the latter. not too low cut. Very classy. You can wear a regular bra with it.

Walking into the room and knowing that I looked amazing
This dress is beautiful and perfect for a wedding. I rented both the XS and S. Both fit and looked almost identical on. But the S was a little looser and more comfortable, so that's what I wore. The bust and straps were a little loose, but it wasn't noticeable. This was my first rental. Can't wait to rent more!

Sultry but formal
Great dress, fit fairly true to size. I wear a 4/6. Slightly tighter across the chest than the waist/hips on me. Would work well for a more hourglass/slightly curvy shaped woman. Beautiful colors, great fit. Sexy but not overly so. Works well for a wedding!

Looking sharp at my best friend's wedding!
This dress seemed to run a bit smaller than the other herve I rented. The small was more flattering to my front but gave me back "cleavage" so the medium it was. Not too low cut and not too short. Perfect when you want to look hot but not slutty.

This dress fits like a glove and is extremely comfortable. In my book that makes it perfect!
Make sure you get a size down from what you think you usually wear. Will this dress, the smaller size is more flattering because it holds everything in the right places. This is the third Herve Leger I have rented and after the first time I knew that it would be a guaranteed success. I am 38 and have two kids and work out regularly and this dress made me feel like the best of myself. The lines around the ribcage and under the breasts add an extra magical slimming effect! Oh, did i tell you that it is sexy?

Felt great in this dress!
This was a great dress and overall nice fit. I wish I went with the XS, but I got 2 dresses and could only get 2 sizes in one. The dress came on time and in great condition. I would say that my biggest complaint is that I didn't get any other the added "goodies" that everyone talks about. These didn't come with either of my dresses this time or my past order either. I wonder if RTR has stopped doing this. I really hope not, that added feature really contributed to the experience...

I had ordered another dress, but when it became unavailable, I got a chance to rent this amazing one
Great to wear with a regular bra, but I did have to keep making sure the back wasn't sticking out too much. This is absolutely gorgeous dress, and I got tons of compliments on it. Thanks RTR!!

Thank you thank you for saving my Vegas Weekend!
I had rented two other dresses for a weekend in Vegas -- and neither of them fit. But on Friday -- only a few hours before I flew out -- RTR staff helped get me this dress which was a KNOCKOUT. It is like wearing fashionable spanx. Totally comfortable and somehow manages to suck in and push up everything right. I highly highly recommend this dress if you are like me -- tall with curves. I have a size 27-28 waist, but I wear a 34 DD bra. Dresses are sometimes hard to find. As others have said, I took it out of the box and said, "uh-oh." But it slipped right on and was amazing. I got tons and tons of compliments! Herve Leger will definitely be a go-to in the future.

I felt so hot I forgot that I was turning 49!
I rented this for my birthday as a test run with RTR. My original dress pick didn't arrive and this was my backup dress. It turned out to be *the one* anyway, thank goodness. As other reviewers have mentioned, the dress is snug and the fabric does relax a bit after about 30 minutes of wearing. Very comfortable to wear. I had no trouble zipping into the Small by myself. On me, the dress was a little baggy at the waist in the back and once the fabric relaxed it was loose enough to ride up around the hips. I couldn't possibly go smaller, though, due to my cup size (I'm an F). My experience with RTR was overall a good one, even though the original dress pick arrived on Monday and not Friday as planned. I received a credit for the dress that didn't arrive and have just rented 2 different Herve's for a soiree next week! I'm hooked on RTR now AND Herve Leger. I just ordered one of my very own from Nordstrom tonight.

My boyfriend's reaction when he saw me walk out in it!
I was nervous about this dress because it's entirely skin tight and I'm not exactly model skinny. I was worried that my stomach would stick out and the dress would look too tight. But these herve leger dresses are magical! It sucked me in in all the right places and gave me great curves. I got compliments all night long and the most facebook "likes" I've ever gotten on one picture! I intend to rent another herve leger for my next holiday party!
