Perfect birthday dress!!
Dress was just perfect!! I ordered xs and small. I wore the xs and it fit like a glove. I have a big bust and I was afraid it wouldn't stay up on one side because of the one shoulder but it did AND it made me look like I have an hourglass shape! Perfect for my 26th birthday date with my husband :) and I loved the ombré look! Also, a big plus, it was soooo comfy!! I was sad to return it :( I would definitely rent this again!

I received many compliments on this dress.
I wore this dress in Las Vegas. The XS was too snug, so I wore the Small. My butt tends to be biggest part of my body. It was great to dress to dance in.

The spectacular sexiness of Hervé, in a classier. more unique cut than others in this price range.
I always love Hervé's thick material. As a very skinny girl, I appreciate that it keeps my hipbones from protruding too much, which can easily cheapen a bodycon look. For any body type, the material allows you (encourages you, really!) to go braless, which I'm a huge fan of doing. This particular dress uses shades of a gorgeous, glowing grapefruit color, which photograph beautifully and flatter any skin tone. I suggest matching your lip color as closely as possible with the deepest shade. I happened to have a patterned shoe that worked well with the dress, but a solid shoe in a neutral color (nude, cream, black if you have dark hair) is usually going to be your best bet for completing the look. One con: There was only one imperfection with the fit on me. You can see in the picture that there is a wrinkle, indicating looseness, around my bust and under my arm. The XS that I wore might simply have been worn by someone with a larger bust than me. Be aware of this if you are small chested.

A fun, flirty dress to ring in the new year!
Being short waisted, the top was a little loose. I ordered the XS as a back up size, but it didn't ship. I'm curious if the smaller size would have been a better fit for me. Otherwise, the dress was actually quite comfortable, even on the dance floor!

Fabulous color & thick fabric
I rented this for my bachelorette party weekend & it arrived in perfect condition but the top was too big for my boobs to fit even with a push up bra & the bottom part gave me muffin top/rolls because it was so small (I'm curvy) I got the small & med hoping one would fit since I'm a size 6.

Classic Herve. Absolutely amazing!
This dress is a classic Herve Leger. Absolutely stunning, fits like a glove. Tight and not too short, so I didn't feel over exposed. Colors were amazing in person and in photos. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Nice, but didn't hold shape
I liked the color, and the dress received many compliments, however I found that the dress tended to stretch as the evening progressed. I have narrow shoulders, so the style was a little overpowering for my body. Still, it looked great and I will be using the service again.

Went to Las vegas for a girls trip and had to look fabulous!
LOVE the color. The material is amazing and honestly this dress fit like a glove for the most part. The XS was not available for my weekend so I only had a small. I assumed the small would fit and it did, it wasnt super tight either. It was a little loose around the shoulder and the back, but nothing a little tape and safety pin couldnt fix. Paired this dress with some Nude shoes and gold earrings and a nude bag. I definitely was turning some heads that night, I may even rent this dress again!!

Beautiful dress. Loved the colors and the design. Received many complements.
Great dress for a wedding. Fun and conservative at the same time. Was able to move and dance in it very easily. The fit was rather large though probably due to being stretched out. Most Hervee Leger dresses are very tight and this one is formfitting but not tight.

Beautiful color
Dress was stretched out and didn't provide the structure Herve dresses usually do. My tummy is a problem spot for me. I had to wear a corset to hold it in, which made sitting awkward. That being said standing looked great and I got lots of compliments!

Beautiful dress - Size S was a little bit big
I rented this dress for a wedding in Mexico and I absolutely loved it. I think I would have worn the XS because the S was a little bit big (stretched out I think). Still loved it and would rent it again. I received many compliments!

Stunning construction, knockout dreas
Architectural construction, ombré color pattern, stunning design. Only drawback was that it was much looser than other Herve dresses that I have worn and it did not have the same degree of sucking-in effect; it was more comfortable, but I couldn't eat anything. Probably would have been better with spanx, or if possible, go a size down?

Stunning!
I had been dying to wear a Herve and was beyond excited to have the opportunity to finally wear one. This dress lived up to the hype - it was sexy but still classy. As I walked through Indy, strangers stopped to compliment me and ask where I got my dress! Perfect for dancing. I was only disappointed that I had to ship it back!

Tight, sexy. hot dress!
This dress is super fitting. I loved the bright colors of it and the fit. It is a very form fitting dress and every curve shows. The issue I had with the dress is wearing bra. It was so form fitting that you could see the outline of your bra which made it look bad. I ended up going braless and found out later on in pics that you could basically see my nipples through the white top. Maybe where pasties?

No Spanx needed
Loved this dress!! I rented the Medium and Large for my girlfriend's bachelorette party. I wore with the large since the medium was a bit too tight in the hips, but I had a few issues with the material gaping around the bust. I'm not sure if that's just the size or if it's been stretched out, but it wasn't that big of an issue for me since I actually received compliments from complete strangers off the street. (Talk about ego boost) I'll definitely rent this dress again.

I normally wear a small, but this dresses material was very tight and does not really stretch. The medium felt great and very comfortable, and was a little classier because the length was longer. I did not want to give this dress back!

I wore this dress the night of my wedding after party and it made me feel like a star!
Felt and looked like a movie star in this dress. Our wedding reception ended early so we had an after party at a local night club where I changed out of my wedding dress and into this dress. I got compliments left and right all night long!

This dress was HOT!
It was a toss up between the Small and X-Small but I went with the XS because it was a bit more narrow on top which was better suited for my small chest. I wore the Nu-Bra to give me some added shape. EVERYONE complimented this dress - from the bride to my grandfather to the bartender. It is beyond form fitting but in a respectful, classy way. I wore it with nude platform heels. What I love most about it is how original the design is. Not your typical LBD. If you want to make a statement, you cannot go wrong with this dress.

Fun Birthday Dress!
The fit is very tight with minimal stretch. Not to say that it was uncomfortable, it's almost the same tight feeling as wearing shapewear actually. There was no way I would've been able to fit into a small, let alone breathe if I managed to zip it up. It looked like a size 0 or 00 to me. Medium was a squeeze so I felt like it was more a size 2 but the stretch was enough to fit myself in. One of my major concerns about any dress is the length, since I'm on the petite side but this was a great length for me, about an inch above the knee. The only thing that was off putting was that the bandage part in the upper back was the same color as ACE bandages, even my sister made that comment. I felt a little weird about it but it's such a minor thing and the pinks were so pretty I couldn't pass up an opportunity to wear it out! I could wear a strapless bra just fine, no need for the strapless/backless ones. Paired it with some nude pumps and had a great time at my bday celebration!

Loved the color and fit!
Loved, loved this dress!! I rented this dress for an August wedding because it looked sexy yet classy. I ended up wearing the Small size because, as it is an Herve Leger, it ran very small! Ladies, I recommend renting up one size, at least, for this dress! Once it was on though, it fit like a glove and it was surprisingly pretty comfortable! It's wasn't too short so it would be suitable for a wedding. My favorite part was the back of the dress and the color -- it's so pretty and so different and very fun to dance in! This was definitely one sexy, fun dress and I would definitely rent it again!!

Cute, once you're finally done manipulating it
This dress should definitely be worn with Spanx. I had to fuss with it quite a bit in order to get it to look right on me, but once I did, it was cute....still--a little too much trouble for a dress. The material is thicker than I thought it would be, but I assume that was for the cinching effect the dress has.

Very small, had hole in the side
This was my back up dress - and a special thanks to the RTR customer service team! The free second size was not available in the Herve Leger Heartbreaker dress so they gave me choice as to any other Herve dress I wanted. Selected this as my XS and needless to say it looked like it was fit a toddler. However, didn't need it because the pink heartbreaker dress was amazing!!

The dress was bright and colorful, got lots of compliments for wearing something other than a LBD to the party. I rented the XXS and the XS and found the XS more comfortable. Great dress, I would rent again.

Hugs all the right curves!
Beautiful dress! Usually I wear an extra small / 0 but I went with the small on this one so that it wasn't too tight. Not super short if that's what you're looking for, but I am only 5'1 so not many things are super short on me. Super sexy!

Flaunts and hugs every curve. Thanks RTR!
I wore this for my sorority formal and I'm so glad I did. I'm a hourglass and I think this dress accentuated that very well. My boyfriend and others gave me tons of compliments. From most of the pictures I saw of others who wore this dress, most of them all chose to wear nude pumps. I opted to wear black shoes like the model and chose black earrings. I tried on nude pumps but it washed me out. So choose at your own liking. You will need breast petals for coverage because the material on top is very thin. Overall, fantastic dress. Thanks again RTR for outdoing yourself.

if you wore breast petals, did you go braless? Any specific reason for that if you did?

Super slimming and gorgeous colors!
Great fit while standing... however while sitting the "bandage style" kind of had a folding/bunching effect at the waist area (showed up in a few photos, not that it was uncomfortable). Super slimming but not so tight that it was hard to walk in for the night!

This dress was so flattering and curve hugging! I received compliments all night on how gorgeous the dress was. I might as well have been a walking advertisement for #RTR because I told most people it wasn't mine! Fun fact: my sister-in-law in the pic also rented for the event! :)

It fit nice and snug but I had to wear a slip under it because it runs a little bit small.
