I wore it for a garden wedding in Malibu. Very chic.
A bit on the short side but shows off your curves.

LOVED IT for summer wedding
Fit is amazing - so comfortable especially when dancing all night! The fabric warms up to your body and allows you to feel great and look great. I received a ton of compliments on this. It was a tiny bit too short for my liking though, especially when walking (rides up a couple inches), but the neckline is a compromise as it provides a bit more coverage than a typical cocktail dress. Stunning color too!

Perfect fit for a perfect night.

Not very flattering on my hips
The color was exactly as it looks on the website, very pretty. I didn't like the lines going down my hips or the way the sleeves cut into my armpits, it wasn't very flattering. It was a good length for my height, not too short not too long. I ended up wearing the other Herve Leger dress that I rented.

A little short for a 5' 10" ga
I liked this dress, since all HL dresses are amazing, but it was a little shorter than what I had hoped for. I ended up not wearing it since it wasn't appropriate for the party I was going to- but would have been a great clubbing dress!

Sizing was way off!
I am very tiny and I ordered XXS and XS and neither one fit me! Material is heavy and uncomfortable for summer.

great color!
I wore this at our Rent the Runway Employee Party - it was the first Herve I've ever tried on and wow - i get what all the hype's about! I wore the XS but could have easily gone a size up, it was super tight and flattering but really good at hiding any "flaws". Definitely a thumbs up for a bachelorette, night out on the town, date (lucky guy!), etc

I felt great in this fun color and flattering dress!
I tried this dress on at a Rent the Runway employee party and felt like wearing it out that night! The tight fabric was very flattering and I felt as if the dress would stay put and looking great through out an entire party. It can be worn with an normal bra or without if you are comfortable which is very convenient. It was a bit longer then I was expecting and I would have sized down for back up.

Feminine and sexy!
I'm pretty curvy but I have a small waist. This dress fits like a glove and is stunning. I felt super confident!

I would love to see where the dress hit you on the leg!
SandyMay 31, 2012
On this leggy model the dress looks very short. I wonder what the length would be for someone 5'3"?
RTRJune 4, 2012
Hi Sandy, this dress is 36'' from shoulder to hem. Take a quick measurement to see exactly where the dress will fall on you!
