Great dress, fun night
It was a bit stretched out on the top, but I made it work. I note the tape (recommended by dress consultant) does not work well on the fabric. So ... unless you get some guidance from a professional on how to get it to stick do not buy the tape. Otherwise, great dress.

Beautiful dress, I think I just ordered the wrong size :/ XS was too tight and the M was too big.
Beautiful dress, felt very nice on my body. Stiff fabric which was cool. The medium was really big in the bust (completely different from the XS). Almost like someone had tried to stuff their really big boobs into it and stretched it out. Maybe that was just the specific dress I got, or that's how it was supposed to be. Either way, the dress was nice but it just kept falling down. The S was out of stock, but I think it would have been a perfect fit. Wore it to birthday dinner with my boyfriend and got lots of compliments!

Amazing service
I rented this dress for prom, and it was absolutely flawless. I received so many compliments, and I plan on renting it again soon! The Rent the Runway team was totally on top of the order--they notified me immediately when my backup dress was unavailable, and then replaced it easily with a dress similar to it. Overall great first experience with RTR!

I had so many compliments on this dress.
I'm typically a small or medium, so I ordered a medium thinking it would fit. It was a little tough to get into. But it looks fantastic. It's a very slimming dress.

Delivered right to my Hotel! But not my favorite rental.
Loved that the dress was delivered right to my hotel very easily when I was vacationing in NYC. The dress however was not my favorite. I have worn Herve before and knew I was a size Medium, but so thankful I got the large backup size because the medium was way smaller than anticipated. The Large was stretched out, but at least it fit. It worked for date night, but I did not want to stay in it very long because it was just uncomfortable. I think the boyfriend loved it though :)

I just got this dress and put it on. I am 5'6 and between 145-155 (that's a broad range but I always sit somewhere in there). Anyway I didn't even bother trying on the medium. The large fits like it was made for me. It's not too short. Though when I pulled it out of the bag I though for sure it would be. It comes about mid thigh on me. It is so amazing! The material is very giving and it feels too comfortable to look so great. Do not be fooled though. The bottom is almost black ( thought it was very dark blue but it really looks black). So you can do black heels. I would not reccomend light jewelery on top like the model has. It's way to light for as light as the top is. I went with some nice chunky dark blue jewelry which I think goes nicer with the dress. RENT THIS YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!

Great Dress
The dress is beautifully flattering on and very comfortable; I definitely recommend it! It is quite snug on the torso, though, so make sure to check the sizing chart before placing your order - I would normally wear a medium, but the extra room in the large was preferable for this style.

Was a bit too short
I ordered the Riptide and the Berry Ombre for a fashion show and party and I'm so glad I ordered the backup dress; this dress was obscenely short on me. Other Herve's run longer, this one was closer to a tube top.

beautiful dress
I rented this dress as my first choice but they didn't have it in the size i needed, so I wear my second choice. I have to say I really did love the colors of this dress and would love to rent it again.

Gorgeous dress
Rented this after seeing it on my friend at her birthday. Fit like a glove, gorgeous color. Great on both my very athletic body as it was on my friend's very curvy body.

Careful! Runs EXTREMELY Small
I was totally bummed when this dress arrived because the style runs extremely small and I rented it for New Year's Eve -- very short and very tight. Luckily my backup size wasn't available, so I got to rent another Herve for an extra $25 (also XS) it fit perfectly! Also, the colors look brighter in the picture, whereas the colors in person are little more aquamarine-ish. If RTR had a small available, I would have been golden. At least I have my backup!

The picture doesn't do it justice, the dress in natural light is way more vibrant... and the cut is really flattering!

Great fit!
The overall fit of the dress was what you woul dexpect from a HL dress, however, the dress itself was a bit worn.

Dress fit like a dream, accentuating all the right parts!
Dress is easy to wear and hugs curves in all the right places. Since the material is thicker and tighter, it also stays in place, which is nice. Great especially for those with large busts because the material is stretchy so you know for sure that it will fit and you can pick the dress according to body size.
