Bachelorette LBD!
I've rented this dress numerous times for bachelorette parties! It's always a winner in comfort and style! The only downfall is that the armpit opening is so big and it makes it tough on fuller chests. So, I've solved this issue by purchasing a Spanx "Shape My Day" Open Bust Shaping Slip (in black). It covers up that awkward and sometimes unflattering underarm opening. You can make it work! Good luck and enjoy!

Perfect for a weeknight date in the city!
This dress was perfect for diner in New York. The neck is a little odd. I think I wore it wrong. I love the fit abs overall look!

This dress fits like a glove showing every sexy curve of your body. It is very classy and eye popping.Rent this dress today to get back at the guy that walked away because he will look at you and want to come back. Guess what you don't want him back, you found better.

I wore this dress on a birthday date with my husband. I love the cut around the shoulders and neck with just the right amount of skin showing. The dress has a side zipper for a body hugging fit.

The perfect LBD.
I LOVED wearing this dress!!! Since I'm just 5ft, the dress fell a little bit longer on me...about mid-thigh, but eventually, I was grateful for the extra length because I have really curvy hips and the fitting fabric would ride up. So if you are curvy, beware of that. I wear a 6 or 8, and the medium was fine. I would have maybe gone for the small, just so it could fit my waist better, but overall the dress fit me like a glove. Also, I have a large bust and can't do the bra-less thing, so I was definitely grateful that I could wear a regular bra with it. Just make it's a black bra because if the armholes are a little large on you, the side of the bra might show. Overall, absolutely loved it

Veru classic and truly sexy. Beware the exagerated arm holes! Could show more unsigthly skin than preferred, i.e. must have completely toned arms, pecs and lats! Nothing a pashmina couldn't remedy. My husbands jaw dropped, it was worth it!!!!

I got this in an XS and it was a perfect fit. It's definitely curve-hugging, but I think Herve Leger, in general, tends to act more like you're wearing spanx than, say, a satin dress that would reveal every little bulge. It was perfect for the dinner I wore it to.

This dress is amazing! It does wonders for the curves. I wore it to a wedding reception and received numerous amounts of compliments. I rented an XS and a M (small wasn't avail) I think the small would've been perfect, although the XS was fine. A little snug, but still comfortable. I am already looking into renting another Herve dress for my bday in July!!!!! Thank you RTR for the opportunity to wear designer digs at amazingly affordable prices.

I ordered this dress in XS and at 5'-3" and 100 lbs., it was still way too small. Arm holes were really strange looking. Sadly, had to send it back as RTR claimed they had no "small" only "medium". Weird.

Great Dress
I LOVED this dress, but unfortunately I could not wear it. I order a medium and large. The medium was a little snug in the body (still trying to lose that baby fat!!) but perfect in the bust. The large was perfect in the body but way too big in the bust.

Basic LBD, big in arms.
Nice dress that looks as advertised - a simple, nice LBD. However, the arm holes were huge on me! I am very petite, but these were much larger than I am used to and therefore I couldn't wear the dress. If you are a little taller it should fit great.

Too snug but a great dress
I didn't end up wearing this dress because it was too small and I didn't order a back up size (my fault, big mistake!) but it was a fabulous dress and I would order it again (in the correct size :-)) for a party or night out. The material was thick and would probably be forgiving in the right size. Order up and enjoy ladies!

They were very helpful
This dress was gorgeous. Herve Leger is always amazing, but this one is a bit different than the rest. Very elegant. Great for day or night. The only thing to watch for, if you are large chested and have to wear a bra like me: the arm holes are very large and long. But I wore a super simple black bra and it blended perfectly

Classic LBD
Like the other reviews the arm holes in this dress were strangely large. As long at you didnt have your arms over your head much, it was fine. Not an amazing dress but not bad

Would've been cute but neither size fit.
Unfortunately, they didn't have a small. I am fairly busty so the XS was too small. I got the medium as a back up and it was too big. It was hard to tell in the picture, but there is a black belt/seam in the middle that was not flattering.

Would try another Herve Leger but not this one.
I was already renting a dress for Sat night so I added this one. I could not have worn it as intended because under the arm was cut so low you could see a lot of my bra. It was a snowy night so I wound up wearing it with high heel boots and a bolero sweater...all black. It fit nicely otherwise.

Great customer service!
My package arrived on time and in perfect condition to my vacation location. Unfortunately, I was in such a rush that I did not try on the dress until I was actually going to wear it on Saturday night. The dress fit beautifully except around the chest area. I am a 36D, so it fit, but there was way too much side boob hanging out. So I took it off and put spanx on underneath it to see if I could minimize the amount of side boob showing but then all you saw was my bra! I ended up not wearing the dress because I felt like after a night in Vegas I was headed for a wardrobe malfunction!! If I was just going to dinner I might have chanced it, but dancing and raising my arms was way too much of a risk!

Perfect for a date night -- I wore this to celebrate our 6 month wedding anniversary with dinner in NYC. I paired this with a classic black louboutin pump but think it would work well with a colorful pump!

Simply stunning.
Fits like a glove, but surprisingly forgiving. Has a little band that you can't see in the stock photo that helps pull in your waist *even if you don't have one like me.* I'm built pretty athletic but am pretty bottom heavy. My boyfriend loved it and even the other adults (young and old) had compliments. The zipper is a bit fussy & the bottom of the zipper looked like it had some wear & tear. Would & most likely will rent this dress again. I have a long torso & short legs- perfect length. Was worried that the medium would either be too small or too big. FIT PERFECT. The top was a bit big but no one could tell. I see what other people mean by the low arm pits. Its an extra design flare that I enjoyed. Did not find it awkward at all. I think if you were less busty it may be a problem.

Wore it for our holiday cocktail party.
Like many reviews, it was way to big in arms. I'm a 34DDD and couldn't figure out how to wear it, so the shoulders stay up or down, because it was too big. However, after a few drinks, I stopped fussing with it and enjoyed the dress... simple, tight and comfortable. Would have gone down to medium, but wasn't available.

True to size for a Herve
I am typically a medium or a large... always a large with Herve. Beautiful dress. The arms were big as described in other reviews... I am larger up top, so it was not an issue. Beautiful dress with some sex appeal.

Great LBD
Another beautiful Herve dress, but not my favorite. I was a little nervous that RTR did not have a S available, but the XS fit just right. It isn't your typical body con dress but is still a gorgeous LBD. The arm holes are a little big and your bra might be peeking through if you aren't careful. The dress is very versatile and perfect for day or night. I liked the dress but wasn't head over heels for it.

LBD is always great
The fit is snug. The armholes weren't an issue. It was a fine backup dress that I received in less than 24 hours, but I wasn't in love with it. I was hoping for a little something more flattering. The best part was it worked in a pinch and Rent The Runway provided amazing customer service to replace my original dress which didn't work out. Thankful I got a back-up in time for my sorority formal.

Backup dress
I rented this as my backup dress and this one was also very tight. Again the refund process with RTR is hassle free and I even got an email apologizing for the delay in the refund.....it was valentines day weekend, I can only imagine how busy it was. All in all I am still a very happy customer and can't wait for my next event to rent!

Adorable, slimming dress, but arm-holes are unforgivable!
I really wanted to love this dress - it's slimming and sharp. Pairs really well with a bold-colored statement necklace. But as other reviewers mentioned, the arm holes are obscenely large. I am a 34F and the openings went out as far as the middle of my breasts - definitely not the classy look I'm after. It could be hidden effectively with a black bra, but for the money, I'd invest in another rental that is cut less strangely.

Classy dress
This was a fun dress. I rented it at the Vegas RTR store. It does have a weird arm holes. They are very large and I did not like that part of the dress. Other than that the rest of the dress is very flattering. They only had an XS so I wore that but I definitely would normally go with a Small.

Wore this to a work party; it was appropriate and flattering!
This was my back-up dress but it fit me MUCH better than the dress I originally ordered. I am normally and XS-S, but they only had M available, the material is such that you can wear a size bigger and it still fits pretty well! It's just a very simple, easy, flattering black dress. I give it 4 stars, only because I thought it was a little pricey for the style. But, it's a very reliable dress/style.

Classic LBD
Although I didn't end up wearing this for the event (it was my backup), this dress is classy and flattering. The one thing I didn't like about it was that the arm holes were too big and showed a weird amount of skin around my armpit, even when my arms were down. It fits like any other Herve and was a great given my height.

Great LBD
Really liked this dress for a night out in Vegas. Rented the M with L as backup. Both fit but I went with the L for a little extra room. Fairly basic, not a lot of bells and whistles on this one, but sometimes less is more. It's a great blank canvas that you can really dress up with fun heels and accessories.

Potentially chic
Rent the Runway mailed this dress to me in lieu of a dress I chose that was returned damaged beyond repair. The bottom fit well, but the top was huge! The armpits were cut so low I couldn't wear a bra with the dress. Even with a bra, there may have been a glimpse of side boob. The low cut under the armpits kept inching across my chest and was... weird. For reference, my measurements are: 30E bust, 34,25,34.

This dress looks simple but is actually super sexy! I wasn't able to wear cause the event I was attending was a bit more conservative but I would def rent this hot little number again!
