Hervé for my #Dirty30 bday bash!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I chose to wear the large over the medium because there was more room in the large for my boobs. The dress is really fitted no need for spanx! Not super short. I felt really comfy all night. I never worried about adjusting my dress it fit perfectly =•]

The body was very right but the top actually could have fit me better. I kept having to pull up the top part of the dress. I think an Herve Leger with straps would be a better option for me!

Sexy standout bday dress

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ordered my shipment about 5 days before I needed it so they only had an XS and no backup size of S available. I fit into the XS but it was very tight, which still looked good because of the thicker material. I had to have a friend zip me up and got lots of compliments on it throughout the night! It was in great condition and didn't have a problem with having to pull up the top of the dress throughout the night like other reviewers stated. I loved the dress and can't wait till the next time I can rent the runway again!

My boyfriend loved it!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is flattering & slimming! It was fun to wear & definitely an attention-getter. It's very tight, but the material stretches. It looked better with a strapless bra vs braless. I had to privately readjust the dress to pull it up about 10 times in a 6 hour time period. I was doing a lot of dancing though. The silicone band at the top of the bust on the inside to help with grip was partially worn off the XS and mostly worn off on the S. My dress arrived on time as promised.

My favorite rental so far!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I rented this for my anniversary. I was apprehensive about the bright blue fabric on the bottom half because that's my problem area. However, the dress was very fun and sexy, and my husband loved it even if it didn't conceal my big butt. It came to the knee on me. The only issue with the dress is that I had to keep pulling up the top. I'm a B cup, and the dress was a tad big in the chest.

Fits thigh and for me it was long. I'm 5'2 so I'm right at the borderline of petite. I thought the dress was beautiful and got so many complements on Facebook. Used it to go to Las Vegas for a concert.

Laser tag and twerking for senior homecoming <3

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I've finally fulfilled my dream of wearing a Hervé dress for a school dance and it was so worth it! If you wear this dress (which you should), you will be receiving nonstop compliments all night long because you're sexy, girl! The fabric of the bandage dress is thick and perfect for dancing all night and laser tag (my date wanted to be Barney Stinson for a night and it was a blast)! The dress does ride up a little bit during these activities, especially if you have a 'Kardashian booty' like me, so just be aware of how much leg you want to show! I will definitely rent this perfect dress again in the future :)

I loved this dress. It hugged my body very nicely, and it wasn't too short so wearing this to a wedding was perfect. Received several compliments! Only downsides: the zipper would sometimes bunch in the back, and I did have to pull up the dress often. I have a small bust though, so that happens to me often.

The only reason I gave this dress four instead of five stars is it kept slipping down all night and I kept having to pull it up. Other than that, I loved the dress. It fit like a glove everywhere else and I felt like a hot 25 year old!

I wore this to a party for a company function. Everyone loved it, however it felt a little big on the top, and I had to keep pulling it up. It is to be expected with a strapless dress though. Otherwise it fit like a glove. It could have just been that it was stretched out from previous people.

This dress was a hit!! I had a lot of people asking me where I got it:) Perfect dress for my birthday night out to Lisa Vanderpump's Sur Restaurant in West Hollywood. I wore a small..I would not have been able to zip the Xs. Holds everything in for the most part. I did have to keep pulling it up on the chest but that's also the nature of a strapless dress! Definitely recommend!

This dress is amazing!

Size worn: XXS
Rented for: Party
I have rented this dress twice now. The first time was for a charity cocktail party. I rented the XXS and the XS. The night before the event I tried on the XS and it fit well but I noticed it was missing some side boning. The night of the event I decided to try on the XXS just to see if I could wear it. It took a solid 10 minutes to get on by myself but it fit amazingly. I ended up wearing the XXS and it did not move all night. I didn't have to adjust it at all. The second time I rented it was for a nice dinner date and I rented the XS as it was the smallest size available. I liked it still, but the dress showed some wear in missing boning and the rubber strip inside the dress to hold it up. I still enjoyed the dress but not as much as the first time because it was a larger size. I'd still recommend this dress because it's beautiful and form flattering yet still comfortable.

Chic and Gorgeous

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Really loved the dress and would recommend it for most body types. One con is that the top is a little loose and I did some pulling-up throughout the night - not typical for me as I usually tend to stretch the limits of most dresses in the bust. The M was a little tight but the L was loose so I went M. Lots of visual interest, nice colors for a winter wedding. I paired it with big gold and amethyst chandelier earrings and black peep-toe pumps.

Beautiful dress!

Size worn: S
Rented for: Date
I chose a size small and medium and went with the small. The medium worked too but was a little less fitted in my waist. The colors were beautiful! I felt amazing wearing this for my anniversary dinner. My only problem was that I had to keep pulling up the top, but for a dinner that wasn't too bad. I'm petite yet busty and couldn't wear a bra with this either. It sure did look amazing though! Very figure flattering and enhances your curves! I will definitely rent another Herve again.

Amazingly flattering dress that was a showstopper!

Size worn: S
Rented for: Party
Dress is made to fit tight since it is a bodycon, holds everything in place. I never felt like I had to suck it in. The only downside was with a larger chest (32DD) I had to keep pulling it up. But I didn't even detract a star due to that since it was so beautiful and made me feel amazing all night! I danced in it and never felt restricted or like I was showing too much. I wore it with black tights since it was a super cold night. And since it was not too short I would totally rent again in the summer and wear without tights and with strappy heels.

Overall fit: True to Size

I ordered the small, but I chose the medium backup because it fit tighter (?) than the small in the bust. The small must have been stretched out in the bust because the M and S fit pretty much the same everywhere else. The dress is beautiful and very comfy. Only complaint was that the top of the dress is not very supportive, so might not be a good choice for someone who needs extra support. I love this brand, they are very flattering dresses.

Based on the other reviews, I selected the XS, but I should have gotten the S. It was soooo tight I felt awkward and my boyfriend had to really help me. It was just too darn tight. I was uncomfortable. But I got the wrong size and that's my fault, not the dresses. I loved this dress's look personally, but my boyfriend did not like the black part.

Herve Leger knows how to make a dress. I rented many from RTR but this might be my favorite. The colors, the fit, the way I felt. It's all perfect. I wore the medium instead of the small because these dresses are tight and short and im 5'9 and didn't need to be giving free shows ;)

The stress fit perfectly. I did go to Neimans to try on this designer before renting. Only small complaint. This must be a popular dress as the top felt a bit stretched out and loose. I am fairly small chested so maybe that was the problem. It was a last minute decision to rent. Rented on Wednesday evening and the dress arrived on Friday. Service was great. Process was simple. I got compliments all night long in this dress. Will definitely be coming back.

I wore this dress in Vegas for my 31st bday. Runs large. I'm 200 lbs and was able to fit into a medium with no shaping garment. I needed help with the 1 hook and zipper. Dress was just a lil big in the bust, probably from being worn so much.

I am 43 years old, married, have 3 kids, work full time and work out a fair amount. I can honestly say this dress plays up the "assets" so to speak. I wish I got a picture of the side and back views! honestly, this dress will make you look like you have the perfect "baby got back" bootie! I was told to get a medium to accommodate my 34 D bra size. the top of this dress seemed a little stretched. I honestly wish I would have gotten a size small as a back up just to compare fit. This particular evening we celebrated our 12th anniversary. I definitely felt beautiful and sexy for the evening. I would highly suggest this type of dress for the ladies who have "all the right junk in all the right places" so to speak. The dress was comfortable to wear and I did not feel the need to wear any industrial strength foundational wear or a bra. I received tons of compliments!

Stand out in a crowded room

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I absolutely adored this dress. I wore it to my sisters' birthday party at a club in DC. I felt all eyes on me when I walked in the room. The fit was perfect - I was worried because with my super pear shape either the top or bottom is always an issue. I have no chest (don't be deceived by my bra size - it is not a full D cup) so I had no issues with it falling down or having to pull it up through out the night. The built in bra/support was perfect for me. I am really self conscious about my muscular thighs and the length was great because it didn't hit mid thigh and make me look thicker. My booty fit and my sisters teased me but they are just jealous. I loved that this dress made me feel confident and sexy with all my curves. Kudos to Herve Leger! I would buy this dress (in any color) in a heart beat. The colors are my favorite and it was fun to pair with a funky necklace and shoes.

I felt so dang HOT wearing this dress. I wore it to a show and then out to drinks and dinner. I felt like a million bucks. I was getting looks all night long. 1. It makes you look skinny. 2. It makes you look like you have big boobs. 3. It's not too short so it doesn't show cellulite. and 4. The blue color is gorgeous! I had previously worn the Herve Cyclone dress to another event, which is also amazing. I also wore this one in a size M, my regular Herve size. This one is just a tad shorter and a tad less binding than the Cyclone. Like I could take full size steps in this dress. The dress does seem to ride up when you walk, but it's not like you can't give it a little tug down when you get to where you're going. And like others mentioned, if you have big breasts, then you may have a hard time fitting them in. I wore a super padded bra since I'm on the smaller size, and I didn't have any issues with the top. I would definitely recommend ordering this dress.
