Make sure you're in your best possible shape for this one!
I really really wanted to LOVE this dress being that it was my first Herve Leger I've ever worn, but it just didn't work out that way. I am a small person and am by no means over weight, however wearing this dress (esp to a wedding where you eat a lot) I did not feel very secure. I suppose I should have known that it would be as fitted as it was, but something tells me that other Herve dresses are probably more flattering... I felt like this one shows EVERY detail, almost as if it were painted on. In all fairness, if I had ordered a Medium as my back up, it may have fit a little different. I tried to wear thong spanx with it and ended up not wearing them out because they didn't seem to hold in anything. The neckline does come up a little higher than it should like it does on the model in the picture but thankfully I was able to get away with not wearing a bra and it looked fine.
I do like the color, perfect for a fall event and the little triangle cut on the hem definitely adds to the dress. Also both sizes I ordered arrived in immaculate condition, if I didn't know any better I would have thought they were brand new!
I also have to say that the customer service I have recieved throughout all my rentals (I've done 3 so far) has been outstanding. The stylist I communicate with (Serena) is absolutely amazing and extremely accomodating!
