The dress was gorgeous
I rented this dress for New Years Eve. The picture doesn't do it justice. It fits like a glove and I would definitely recommend it. It's short and sexy. Great for a night out!

I wasn't crazy about this dress. I rented it as my back up anyway, but i didn't think the top was very flattering. Also, I'm only 5'2" and I thought it was really short for someone my height!

This gorgeous dress made my formal night that much more memorable not to mention the nonstop compliments!
This dress was hot! It sucked me in in all the right places and I got so many compliments! I wore the M (I am a size 2/4). It was a little small in the chest because I am a 32 DD, but it still looked sexy. I was worried that the design on the shoulders would look a little S&M but it complimented my neckline like I was wearing a necklace! The design also accentuated my curves in a very positive way- I am definitely renting Herve Leger again!

Such a great dress! The colors are a navy blue and purple, so grey shoes are a must. I wore the XS, and the length was definately a mini. I'm a 32 D and the straps on top fit perfect. Overall great dress for the night!

This dress is sexy as hell. I got compliments all night long. I have a curvy body type and thought I would need a medium. I have big hips and large breasts (hourglass figure). I went with the Small, and I'm glad that I did, the Small was the best size based on the silhouette of the dress and the material that its made of. I would def. rent again! I loved it. I felt sexy and beautiful.

LOVE THIS DRESS!!! I accidentally wore the size small even though the xs fit better, so be careful-- if you wear one that is too big it may ride up. Either way my night was full of compliments :) Here's a real life photo: http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/250823_1868979638597_1064250012_31831371_2008649_n.jpg

Loved this dress and hugged each curve perfectly. I was expecting the dress to be a bit tighter was it was nice and stretchy. I have a long torso so it was a bit short but that was perfect for my Vegas trip.

The dress is beautiful but runs extremely small. I own one Herve' in a medium and have rented two mediums....all three fit perfectly. I ordered a M in this dress without a back-up. Honestly don't know if an L would have fit...it runs that small. (I'm usually a 6-8, closer to 8). But again, it is a beautiful dress.

I was skeptical at first thinking that my belly issue would show up in this dress, oh! boy! Iam glad i took a risk for this! It's well worth the money. I feel so confident and I am 135 lbs and M was a perfect fit. the dress came in in a very good packaging. dress doesn't look worn out.perfect! I love RTR! I actually ordered another herve for next month event! Love it!

AWESOME DRESS! Rented it for my sorority semi formal and couldn't have been more please. I'm 5'5, 120 and I wore an extra small. Don't be intimidated by the straps, they don't make your chest look weird.

Whoa, mama! The attention you get from men will astound you! I'm usually a size 2 and the xs was great. The dress is it's own girdle so you have to go with the smallest size you can zip. Holds a tummy trouble spot in nicely. But dang I had the hardest time finding shoes to wear with the navy/magenta. I ended up wearing grey shoes as well, not that it mattered because no one was looking at my shoes.

I rented this for my birthday and absolutely loved this dress. It fit perfectly and hugged my curves in all the right places. I am 5'4" 165 and usually wear a size 8/10 and the medium was perfect in this dress. I have a 34DD and couldn't wear a bra but the dress was tight enough to get away with it!

Dress is ok
I bought this dress for a bday bash and was a little disappointed. I loved the mix of colors, but the dress was overall bland and too tight. The midsection made me appear bigger than I actually was and had to return it.

This dress was perfect... small fit true to size and is a perfect dress for any party! The only thing I would say is it's pretty short so don't rent for an event you'll be sitting down at a lot

Everyone knew exactly who the designer of my dress was!
This fits like a dream. I'm 5'6 120 with an A cup size. I do think you need to have a smaller frame to wear this dress, but the material is so thick- it will hide an imperfections. Overall, I love this dress and it looks even better in person.

Amazing!
I wore this dress to a red carpet event and I felt amazing in it. The thick fabric has the effect of a spanx. It was very flattering and I felt comfortable all night. It didn't wrinkle, it wasn't hot, and it didn't ride up or down and the straps stayed in place. I can't wait to wear this dress again. I am a size 8 and the Medium fit perfectly. I ordered a size L because I am a DD but, because of the stretch of the fabric, it didn't pull or pucker at the top so I was able to wear a dress that fit me in the waist and top ( I usually have to choose). I got so many compliments.

I got a million compliments in this herve dress. Once you go herve, you can't go back!
I rented this dress for a holiday party and loved it. It runs on the shorter side and fell a few inched above my knee. Its skin tight, so if you want to wear a hot little number for the night, this is your dress. The bandage material is amazing and acts like spanx.

This is gorgeous - my favorite Herve so far!
Very Tight in the bust - I normally wear a XS in Herve but this was not going to work too well with my larger bust. Keep that in mind.

My boyfriend asked me to officially be his girlfriend as the clock struck 12 (probably because of this dress!). Definitely a memorable New Years Eve moment. Can't wait to rent another Herve!
I truly have an addiction to all things Herve. I've rented several and this is another winner! The colors are incredible, the fit is to die for, and the color blocking and lines on this dress are so flattering! I wore this for NYE in New York City and received compliments all night! My only suggestion: wear a sticky bra! It'll help fill in the chest which can be a little loose if you're not busty. Overall, the feeling you get from rocking this dress is incredible. RENT IT NOW!!

Dancing the night away with some old and new friends, and this text message I received from an ex boyfriend the next day: "I saw those pics you posted on my news feed this morning and you looked really really hot. Made me regret not flying out there." Thanks RTR!
This dress was everything I hoped it would be for my 22nd birthday celebration. The small was the perfect fit for me - I'm 5'4", 32DD, and normally wear a size 2 or 4. I didn't need to wear a bra with this dress due to its snug fit, and felt totally secure the whole night. Can't wait to order from RTR again soon!

So Much Love
i was a bit cautious about renting a dress for the first time, but i absolutely adored it. I rented it for my school's homecoming and received endless compliments. Everyone was asking me where I got it. The "bandages" put everything exactly where it needs to be and I bet it would look stunning on anyone. It was so sad when it had to go back! But I'm never buying a dress for formal occasions ever again. A great experience.

AH-MAZING
LOVED. My University homecoming is a formal affair and trying to find a unique purple dress is a challenge every year. I've never gotten as many compliments as I did this year. The fit was PERFECT. I'm 5'8" 165lbs and the dress could not have fit better. I have very long legs too, and the length was appropriate too. I DEFINITELY suggest grey shoes, it was the only color that looked good with the navy and purple. I will be ordering Herve again, you should too!

Perfect!
This dress was to die for!! I usually wear a small but there weren't any left but I really wanted to wear this so i rented it any way. It sucks you in in all the right places and makes you look great. I am bustier so the dress was kind of tight there, but it was still fine and not too vulgar at all. This dress is the one to rent if you're looking to a knockout and impress that special someone.

Looking amazing in a fantastic Herve dress, with wonderful friends, made it a birthday to remember!
I rented this dress for my birthday in Vegas, and let me say, it was fabulous! I wear a size 2/4 in dresses with a size 34A bust and athletic build, I ordered the small and it fit like a glove. I honestly can't say anything bad about the dress. I danced my face off the whole night and was comfortable. Two thumbs up for sure!

Fabulous fit, sexy dress
Great renting experience. dress fits like a glove. and you CAN wear a bra! (need to be careful though) I always wear a xs in herve and it fit well. some seams by the straps are a bit loose. but looks ok for now. also I had a back size, S, but with bigger sizes, the bottom part is not tight and sort of gets "wrinkly" which is not fun.

Literally everyone told me that I looked amazing - what a confidence booster!
Loveloveloveee. I rented this dress for a Gala event that I was hosting for the GLBTQ student group on campus (I'm the president). I can't even tell you how many compliments I received! I loved the way the dress hugged all my curves, it was so flattering. It did ride up a little bit - perhaps that because I could have worn a medium but I didn't order a 2nd size because I had ordered 2 sizes for another Herve dress (which I didn't even end up wearing!)

Assisting backstage at SHEI Magazine's fashion show and receiving compliments along with the models!
I was worried this dress might look skanky because of my full bust and butt, but it accentuated my body in all the right ways. It was A TINY bit baggy around the waist since I'm usually a size 4 but the Small was way too short for me. The length was perfect and it gave me a really nice hourglass shape.

Amazing dress.
I'm a Runway Rep for RTR so I love to rent dresses for every occasion. I wore this dress to a date party and felt like a supermodel. I'm 5'10" and usually wear a size 0 or 2, but I never have confidence. Putting this dress on was like getting an instant boost. I was able to get into the XS with a little help from a friend (I couldn't zip up the middle of my back because it was hard to reach) just fine. I would recommend this dress for anyone. Not too short, but short enough to be fun for a night out.
