Worked well for event, fit weirdly though

Size worn: XS
Rented for: Party
The length was great, it was a little tight and hard to zip (would have gotten the small if available) but the arm holes were big and totally showed bra and side boob. If I hadn't had a black bra with me it would have been even more awkward then I felt! Needed help Wore to a rehearsal dinner and it was a good mix of classy but didn't make me feel old lady-ish! I *might* rent it again, but I would defiantly have other dress preferences to rent before wearing this one again.

As others mentioned, the sleeves are extremely awkward. I actually ended up deciding to wear the dress backwards (as pictured on the model) because it looked and felt a little less awkward that way. It did it's job though and worked perfectly for my Line Sister's Breakfast at Tiffany's bridal shower. Not sure I'd rent again if there was a less awkward sleeve Herve option but definitely a cute dress, if not completely functional.

Potentially chic

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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.

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.

Simply stunning.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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

The perfect LBD.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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

Great LBD

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
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.

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.

Wore this to a work party; it was appropriate and flattering!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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.

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.

Adorable, slimming dress, but arm-holes are unforgivable!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
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.

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!

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.

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.

Great customer service!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
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!

Would try another Herve Leger but not this one.

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
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.

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.

Can get a bit Cocktail-Waitress-y

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This dress was not my favorite ever. It's cute and classic, but if you notice, the model has a great figure. I'm curvier, and even with Spanx, it just seemed to bulge in weird places (like the arms?) because it's made to be worn so tight. Also, as you see from the title, I thought it would be very hard to pull off without looking like a cocktail waitress. I had been looking at this one on the site for a while, and I was disappointed.Wish I had picked something else!

A great LBD! Gave 4 stars vs. 5 because the arm holes were very big so my bra was visible. It didn't bother me too much as I wore it out with the girls in Las Vegas but if I had wanted it for a more formal occasion I wouldn't have worn it.

The dress is very sexy. I wear an 8/10 depending on the style. This dress fell right above my knee and skimmed my body perfectly. The only issue is there is a lot of side boob so you have to wear black undergarments. That is why I gave it only 3 stars.

Rented this for a rehearsal dinner and couldn't wear it! :(

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The M was too tight for me and totally flattened my chest. The L was just too big and didn't fit correctly. I didn't do enough research on this one before renting. I also didn't know that if I didn't wear it, I couldn't get my money back since I had another successful rental. I was bummed but loved my other dress which was a Nicole Miller.
