Great fitting dress in beautiful jewel tones
A bit challenging to zip on your own--helpful to have someone else to zip you! Feels great once it is on and really smooths out over undergarments.

The dress overall was good but the elastic band on the top was loose and I had to fix it every minut
I was frustrated that the elastic band was coming out forcing me to fix it every few minutes

Great dress for a night out!
I really liked the colors and design of the dress and it was great for a night out of dancing. The only thing that I didn't like was that the top was little worn out so I had to pull up the dress multiple times.

Slim and sexy but not for D cup
It is a body con dress. Of course it is tight. But because it is strapless, it makes the fit challenging if you have a larger bust. The Ds barely tucked in.

Fun for a night out!
I have worn this brand before, and know that it's runs pretty true to size. The one unfortunate thing about wearing a dress previously worn by others is the elastic is not as firm as it would be if it was new. So no need to size up as its not very tight. I would also recommend wearing Spanx with it.

OUTSTANDING Customer Service!
I was notified the day before I got my dresses that my size was no longer available due to a late/damaged return. The stylists chose 3 other dresses for me to try and sent them at no cost. Even though none of the dresses ended up working out for me, I really appreciate them trying to make up for it. I did have to go out and shop for a dress the day of my event but I won't let this stop me from ordering again!

I loved this dress!!! Wore it for a date night in Vegas with my bf, it was absolutely perfect.
I didn't notice too much of a difference between the XS and S, but went with the S just so I would be more comfortable. The fabric is super flattering - I didn't wear any sort of shapewear and felt great! The colors were vibrant and fun, and my boyfriend loved it too! Would definitely rent another Herve :)

Sexy bodycon dress!
I rented this for my birthday celebration in Vegas. I wore it out for a nice dinner and to a night club. It fits true to size. It is very flattering, even on my straight and narrow body type. No spanx were necessary since the dress is tight enough to hold everything in. It's a heavy material, but it wasn't hot to wear even dancing in an indoor nightclub full of people. My only complaint is similar to what others have said. The top of the dress seemed stretched out a bit from people tugging on the dress to get it on. But that was easily fixed with dress tape.

Loved this dress!
The dress has a lot of stretch/give so it fit nice and snug but I was still able to move freely all night! While some strapless dresses fall down and you find yourself pulling it all night - this one stayed put! There is no padding/support so you should def plan on wearing a strapless bra with it!

Hugs every curve on your body, so be very comfortable with your body if you are going to wear it. I am a size 0 and wore the XS and it was very form fitting.

Worn at the top
Gorgeous dress- made me feel super sexy but I ended up not wearing it. The dress had obviously been worn by others more busty then I and was a little worn around the top.

Structured and flattering!
I got this dress for New Years. I rented the s and xs thinking I would wear the small but the xs actually fit better!! I'm small on top so it held things in better- it was tight at the waist but stretched a bit through the night. I loved the colors and got so many compliments!

Bachelorette Party Style!
I wore this dress for my bachelorette party and I loved it. I had so much fun and I felt sexy and comfortable. It fit me perfectly but still I wore a spanx ( to made me look more skinny). I got a lot of compliments from my bridesmaids-- I am obsessed now with Herve's dresses!

Perfect for a bachelorette party!
I wore this out to dinner and dancing for a friends bachelorette party. No Spanx needed as the individual banding of the Herve Leger dresses acts as built in Spanx (to be honest, you could actually wear Spanx under this for an even sleeker look, which I've done before). I wear a US size 8-10, so a Medium in Herve Leger fits me perfectly. Because the dress is stretchy, it is forgiving but shows EVERY curve. The only thing I didn't care for was the strapless style (it's me, not the dress) because it accentuated my armpit pudge. I believe this dress has a built in bra, which was nice, snug, and comfortable...no tugging to pull the top of this dress down!

Hugs your curves in the best possible way. The cut allows you to wear a strapless bra, which is always a plus!

The dress was stunning and I got tons of compliments about it!
The dress runs small. I am 4'11 and 94 lbs. The XXS was tight and the top of the dress does tend to slide if you are not large busted, which I am not. The XS would have fit also but it was slightly looser then I preferred. Overall, great dress and easy to wear!

Runs small!
I know that Herve is tight, tight, tight so I wanted to size up to a small. Unfortunately, only the xs was available and it was too tight. Otherwise, beautiful dress.

My husband could not keep his eyes off of me. He was so attentive and proud. He finally admitted, "Wow! You're beautiful." My son confirmed it on his facebook page.
This is an amazingly well fitting dress. I didn't think it would be, but I never once had to adjust it like I do with all other sleeveless dresses. Although I've lost nearly 20 pounds to wear this dress, I still had some problem areas, but they are well concealed with this dress.

It was a Birthday Party that I'll remember forever!
I ordered the XS and a S. My measurements are 29-27-42. Pear. The XS fit PERFECTLY!! I wore a VS Bombshell strapless bra and I didn't have to adjust the top at all. The color is more of a fuchsia than a purple. The teal strip on the side was my favorite part!

I wish I could keep this dress. I would wear it every weekend if I could!
I felt so good wearing this dress! Many compliments from friends and the boyfriend. It's tight but the material is thick so it gives your body a smooth figure. This is perfect for a hot date or cocktail party!

Yowza!
Where do I even begin.... I would've given a 10 star rating if possible. Stunning, gorgeous, makes you feel (and look) like a million bucks! If you're considering this rental, do it! I wore the Med. and would've liked the Large but the bust was very stretched out and back waistband too big to work out. Perfect length, fits and accentuates curves rather than flattening like many strapless do, and comfortable enough to dance all night. Love, love, love and can't wait for the next reason to rent it again :)

I wore this dress to a semi formal wedding this summer, loved the bright colors and fit. The internal strap helps keep the dress up, no adjusting necessary even when spending all night on a dance floor.

Herve Leger my GO-TO...
Unfortunately I actually didn't wear this dress but I rented it for a bachelorette party in Chicago....Since I rented two other amazing dresses this one sat the weekend out. I did try it on, ran true to Herve sizing (I always wear a small) Great dress! No tugging or pulling on the top to keep it up.

Everyone loved the colors of this dress! Super fun for a Bachelorette party!
This dress is awesome. It hugs your curves- but in a good way! The material is thick and forgiving so curvy girls look great in it! One issue- even though this material is thick- it is possible to sweat through it. Granted we were in Austin, TX and it was 90 degrees at night:)

Loved the color blocking! Despite the very tight fit, the dress is really comfortable! Plenty of spandex involved, so I had no problem being able to move around freely. Been looking for others like it for every occasion!

This dress helped make my 30th unforgettable!
I wore this dress for my 30th birthday party - the colors and material of the dress are incredible - I would highly recommend this dress and had a blast wearing it! Just an FYI, there were times I had to pull up the top as you would with mostly any strapless dress.

Awesome super hot dress, that made this mom feel sexy and my man's jaw drop.
I wore this to a Miami wedding held on a yacht. It fit true to size for me--no vanity sizing here. I wear a 2 to 4 in the Gap which everyone knows is really a 4 to a 6. The small fit my 5'3" frame great. I have a big butt and a 34C chest. It was tight in my chest area. I needed assistance zipping it up. I took advantage of the open bar so I cannot say whether it got loose but I can say I got tons of compliments from guys and gals and I loved this dress. You COULD wear spanx with this dress if you got the ones that don't have the seam in the front but I found it unnecessary. It did tent a little at the small of my back BUT I really do have a large derriere--that should not be a problem for most ladies. I don't regret my rental and I am already looking at another dress for my brother-in-law's July wedding. I am looking at something more conservative as his wedding is a traditional church ceremony. Keep in mind when looking at my weight that I have a large frame so 140 sounds bigger than it actually is--if you normally wear a 6 and we are the same weight I would get a medium with a small as backup.
