One of my favorite dresses!
I am a repeat offender when it comes to HL dresses. I own a few and rent them for almost every occasion; that being said, this is one of my all time favorite dresses. The neckline is so flattering and even for a someone like me with a larger chest, I didn't feel like I had to worry about anything :) It is also slightly longer than some of the other styles, but with the neckline and the color it is perfect mix of pretty and polished.

This is a total knockout dress. I got a million complements. The fabric is very thick and stretchy, which "holds you in." It does run a titch on the small side (I wore the medium and it fit like a dream: I'm 5'8", 124 lbs).

Gorgeous dress!! But one size smaller than the typical Herve Leger bandage dress. I had to return it:( Make sure you can rent the larger size as well so this does not happen to you.

The staff was very helpful in making the right choice when my dress size did not show up.
This dress was absolutely beautiful! It definitely runs small but it also depends on how tight you want it. If you have any bust or toosh at all I would recommend going a size up. Usually I am a small and wore a medium and it still felt like I was wearing a sports bra. Definitely great for any holiday party!

Stunning
This dress can be very classy if accessorized correctly. It does stretch but runs small. I am short and it was to my knee. So more of an elegant length.

The comments I received while wearing this dress. The amazing customer service before and after receiving my dress.
I am typically a size 4, but as others have said, this dress runs a tad small. I needed help zipping it up, but it was no problem. I felt very contained and this dress loved all of my curves! My only qualm was that the dress had a teeny-tiny stain right on the chest, but unless you were nit-picking it like I was, it's not noticable at all. Also, it looks like someone tried to wear this medium dress when she should've worn a large because the left armhole was patched up where it was previously ripped(?). Other than that, I love the dress! It is sexy but very classy. Vegas didn't know what hit it! ;)

The stylists were so helpful in guiding me. I wore a medium and it fit perfectly! I wore it with Badgley Mischka earrings and received so many compliments on everything. I felt like a million dollars.

Fits awesome but........
So bummed that this didn't work-had to return :( Color is nice-more of a muted cherry red with no sheen. I'm very hourglass-shaped (37-27-37) and from the waist down it fit PERFECTLY. Way small in the bust! I'm a 34D and it looked freaky- like I was wearing 2 sportsbras....lol. So a smaller C or B cup might be just fine but dang if my boobs didn't look funny! Butt and waist looked amazing and I zipped it up myself but yeah not the dress for bigger boobs. Problem is I didn't want to order a M because then it wouldn't be tight enough in other areas ;)

Beautiful dress but runs small
I usually wear a size Medium in all the Herver Leger dresses but for this particular style it was a little snug at the shoulders. The color is beautiful and the length is perfect, it is a very sexy dress!!!

Sooo many compliments!
The fit is just beautiful. I have a very small frame (5'3", 24" waist), but a large chest (34D). I would have worn a small only because it was super tight around my chest. Otherwise it's very comfortable and a very classy cut. I wore this to an East Coast rehearsal dinner and everyone seemed to love it. I got voted "best dressed" by numerous guests.

This picture really does not do the color of the dress any justice-it's much more red and beautiful!
It definitely runs small, I normally wear a small in herve dresses and the medium for this dress fit like a glove. The length was also nice, I am 5'9" and it hit right above my knees and was incredibly flattering. The hem in the back does flip up a little bit, but I am not sure if that is an issue with the cut or just that one dress. Overall, highly recommended!

Not too restrictive, was able to dance the night away!
Okay, okay so I wanted to wear a Herve Leger bandage dress, what can I say? The color is rosy red (true to model's pic). I didn't have to wear a bra underneath it because of its superior hold from the bandages, however I highly would recommend Spanx (I didn't wear one-regret that I didn't) for any issues that you want to smooth out (stomach & thighs). I wore this to my boyfriend at the time (now fiancee) cousin's July wedding and during the reception I was able to bust some moves on the dance floor with ease!

This dress is gorgeous - a light almost pinky red. Only the XS was available and it was super-tight on me and would not zip past the waist (114#, 32d bra size). I'll try a S or M next time but I will definitely want to try this dress again.

Dress is gorgeous on. The color is much brighter than the photo on the website and it runs small. I usually wear a size 6 and had to wear the large.

LOVE this dress! I had so many compliments all night long, the best were of the non verbal variety ;) This is the most stunning dress I have ever worn. It does run small, but it is supposed to. I was surprised how comfortable it was! It was easy to move in and I never felt constricted. Great dress to show off the curves!

Amazing dress. Received compliment after compliment. No need for undergarments.
Loved this dress. I felt tucked in in all the right places and was still very comfortable. The only trick was making sure the zipper lined up where it needed to in the back.

I'm sad to say that this dress was a disappoint. Much like the other reviews, the sizing is very small and the color is not the "cherry" red as seen and described. Also, on normal girls (not tall models), the hem falls well below the knee. There are so many better options than this dress.

I was a bit skeptical about this dress.It was not my first choice, Most of the Herve dresses I liked were already rented. However, I was pleasantly surprised! it is very nice in person and was in excellent condition. The small did not fit. I only weigh 130 lbs, my friend almost broke a sweat trying to zip it all the way. I recommend this dress, just order a size up.

XS runs super small!
I rented this dress in a XS as the back-up option for a semi-formal party. Gorgeous color in person... BUT it was so small! Given that I am a petite 00, it's usually a godsend for me if other reviewers say that the dress fits small (i.e. higher probability that I could fill the dress). Not this one. I could hardly zip the dress up, and when I did (with the help of a friend), I could hardly breathe. Will try the S next time.

I loved this dress, and have worn Herve before, but I felt like this ran very small. Even in the medium, I had a hard time zipping it up. Definitely needs Spanx with it!

Hot, hot, hot
I wore this dress to a charity event. I am somewhere between a size 4 and 6 depending on the designer, and the medium fit perfectly. I actually found it more binding through the torso and chest than the hips, and I am small chested. The dress was extremely flattering and I got a ton of compliments. The dress is a pinkish red, pretty true to the color on my computer screen--definitely more elegant than a fire engine red would have been.

Truly Amazing Dress
All I can say is you need to rent a Herve Leger, if not this exact dress. When you put it on, you may think it is tight, but that is the correct fit. I walked into the holiday party and i knew all eyes were on me. I have to say, I really enjoyed it. Here is another example of how amazing this dress is. Four women came up to me and asked me who I was wearing and where I got it - for it was so beautiful. We all know the rarity of open compliments from women...and this dress will do it. Of course I sent them immediately to renttherunway.com. :^D

one word! AMAZING!
When I received the dress not only was I impressed with the presentation on the inside of the box, but how caring Rent the Runway was of my needs for renting this dress! Not only did this dress fit like a glove but it was definitely a head turned when I stepped in the room. People even said I looked better than the birthday girl (which was true!). I loved this dress and I am a client for LIFE! Thanks Rent the Runway!

Hi Rain, Do you have any front-view pictures of you in the dress? We seem to have similar body types and I'm interested to see how it would look on me. :) Thanks!

Never felt more secure!!
I loved this dress! At my size and shape, I am always wearing spanx under my dresses and I still did with this dress, but never have I felt more sexy! It fit perfectly, all the right tightness without an weird pulling or creasing. The dress made an impact on a Valentine's Day date; perfect for the occasion! The length of the dress hit just at the knee which I loved! The one thing that did bother me about the dress was the off-shoulder area; I was constantly putting it back in the "right" place. Seemed any type of shoulder movement made it slip up atop of my shoulder instead of staying off it. I always wanted to wear a Herve Leger dress and this experience did not disappoint -- I will rent again!

Loved this dress. Herve dresses are tight and sexy...and this one is true to form. I liked that it was a big longer though, because I am 5'10". I think the extra length made it a bit more elegant.

Received several compliments- best one, my bottom looked "phenomenal!!" looked thin but still curvy
The medium fit very well. It definitely exmpasizes curves without any "flaws" thanks to the bandage like material. I wore 5 inch heels and the length was right above my knees.

PERFECTION!
There is no other designer that will make you feel this amazing!! This Herve was perfect. I rented it for an event at Petco Park. It was drizzling out so I added a blazer and I still felt beautiful! I love the longer length and the the pink was refreshing! If you wear Herve, be ready for attention. These dresses make everyone stop and stare, and this was no exception. Runs true to size for Herve. Very tight as usual, but hugs EVERY curve!
