Loved the dress!

Dress was very flattering. Only issue is the neckline was super loose, probably from many many wears. But other than that it was stunning, fit in the right places. This is my second rent of a Herve dress, and it was Exactly what I wanted!

The color of this red is eye-popping...and gives amazing shape. I got compliments all night!

The dress is obviously very comfortable and will fall to around your knee. Very classy and elegant it gives you a tremendous figure and the materials is thick, there are no cons to the stress. I'm a 32DDD and had no issues with bust. I wore it to a nightclub in Puerto Rico and received complement after complement. Can't go wrong with this dress.

Another Great Rent The Runway! Felt so pretty and received TONS of compliments!

First let me say I loved this dress. I usually wear a size 6 so I ordered the medium and the small. I am a 32DD and the top on the medium was huge. Even the small seamed stretched out quite a bit in the chest. My husband had to be on bra patrol all night because the top was stretched out and didn't stay in place. That being said I felt amazing, looked great in all the photos, and was very happy with this rental.

Dress fit perfectly and I received so many compliments.

LOVED this dress. I didn't want to send it back. Hides all your flaws and makes you feel like a million bucks. It is snug at first. It's also SUPER low so have fabric tape on hand to make sure your goodies stay hidden. You'll love this dress. Rent it!

I always am satisfied renting from RTR

Small was more comfortable than XS but it was too large on the sides of my chest. XS was snug but comfortable and i danced, walked and sat easily

I was so thrilled to wear a Hervé Leger. It hugged every curve!!

So this was my original choice for a wedding, but upon arrival I rushed out to the store to get an appropriate bra. It still showed because this dress is very low cut. It didn't look appropriate, so I wore it to the after-party. I was pulling up the top the entire time, and you can still see my bra in the photo. This would be a great dress in the fall, but it was too heavy a fabric for summer. The temperature dropped before the after party, so I mainly wore it for warmth. I did receive compliments, especially because it shows what God gave you, but I did feel exposed and uncomfortable with the exposure from the neckline. I would not rent again, but maybe another Hervé.

Va-Va-Va-Voom!!!! Super sexy dress!!

LOVE this dress!! It definitely made me feel like a bombshell!! It is very skin-tight but that works to smooth everything out. I ended up not wearing spanx because the dress did a good enough job. (Just a warning I did try the spanx on underneath and you could see the line where the spanx ended.) I did have to wear a bra because without it the girls just looked a little weird lol. My bra peeked through a little bit so I'd suggest a plunging bra. I also taped my chest area to prevent anything from slipping out. If you rent this dress be prepared to look sexy and show a lot of cleavage!! I wore it to vegas for a club night with my guy but that's probably the only place I'd feel comfortable wearing it, as it is very sexy!

Love this dress!

Definitely should have gotten the XS. This size small was very big on top and seemed to have been stretched out a bit. Couldn't wear a bra with it due to the deepness of the v in the front. Overall I still loved the dress and got many compliments on it all night long!

Bachelorette weekend!

Looks gorgeous, Very flattering except in the bust area; it was too tight and too low to wear any type of bar and I am not comfortable going braless. The length was perfect for an hour glass figure and the color was beautiful and glamorous.

Herve Leger dresses are just magic for every body type. It's like a dress made of Spanx that smooths everything out. Classy enough for a formal event but sexy enough for Vegas.

Great color, sensible length. Received many compliments!

I wish I had gone for the small. I am small chested and need to use some double sided tape to keep my bra from showing. the dress fit me well through the hips and butt, but there was definitely room to go down a size.

Wish it could have worked

I was so excited to try this dress, I wish I would have read how low the front is! Definitely NOT for the large busted woman unless ultra cleavage is something you're comfortable with. I ordered a small and medium, then switched the S to a large but regretted it in the end because I'm sure the small would have worked. The M was significantly stretched which is not easy to do in a Herve. So much so that the L actually fit more snug? It looked amazing on! Hugged all the right curves, simply just not the right fit. And next time I'll watch what time of the month I rent to avoid the belly pooch! Overall, great dress, ultra low, but simply the wrong size.

Quintessential sexy red dress!

This dress is super sexy and will definitely maximize your assets. I wore it for my wedding anniversary, and it definitely turned some heads. The material is very thick and heavy and was a bit warm for the 85 degree humid day, but would be perfect for fall. The material is very form fitting and clingy, but I didn't have any trouble getting into the dress or zipping it up. The dress looked brand new and perfect. I typically wear a size 8 dress, but I definitely needed a L. As I mentioned, the dress will show off your stuff, but because of how form fitting it is I didn't feel like the girls were going to pop out. Just be prepared for a lot of attention.

Sexy Red Bachelorette!

This dress was perfectly sexy for my Bachelorette night. The length was great because I didn't want to have to worry about it being too short. Plus, the cut of the top is VERY low, so no bra for sure. I found that I had to keep adjusting the top all night to make sure I wasn't coming out anywhere - not the best for D+ women. The sleeves were very comfortable and not awkward, I was able to move my arms up and down just fine. I loved this dress for one night only - I don't think I would rent it again, however, or any other Herve Leger that has a deep cut in the front simply because I would have to keep readjusting myself all night.

Deep V is very low, so if you're under 5'4" consider a specialty bra as a regular strapless may show.

Dress isn't for a shy girl, it is for someone outgoing and loves to show off their curvy figure!!!!

Dress isn't for a shy girl, hugs all of your curves. I received the dress and it had a very strong dry cleaning smell to it. My boyfriend noticed as soon as I opened it. I tried it on and it fit really well, it was a beautiful red color and it emphasized all of my curves and gave me a smaller look in the waste. Customer service was very nice and helped fixed the issue after I notifed them.

SUPER Sexy!

This dress is VERY low cut so beware! I wore it out to dinner and out with friends, I received a lot of compliments and A LOT of stares haha. I am a 34C and they were definitely on display. The dress was a bit tight around my knees so if I were to rent again I would probably wear the medium-- this was my second dress option with no backup size and I typically were smalls in herve dresses so I rented the small. I recommend this dress, especially if you are going for a show-stopping look.I styled it with nude pumps and gold jewelery.

Wore this for a date night in Chicago with my husband

I really liked this dress - the color is very pretty and my husband said I looked absolutely fantastic in it. Because of the tight nature of the dress it seemed to smooth out any problem area I had without the need for a slip or any spanx. only complaints: the fit was a little odd. I felt like the Small fit a little better than the XS - but it weirdly gapped in the back at the top of the zipper. I decided to squish myself into the XS and it looked a million times better. A word of warning though - this dress is very 'sexy' and I was unable to wear a bar with it due to how wide/low the chest opening was.

Looks KILLER if you have curves!! Get ready to get noticed!!

Wore M and the top was a bit big but my boobs are small and the hips felt tight but it doesn't look tight... If that makes sense. Very thick, heavy fabric and stretchy but not too got. Get a sticky plunge push-up bra if you're flat and no bra if you have good ones ;)

Made me feel great!

Loved this dress!! I wore the Small, mostly because I didn't have the energy to try on the medium and find out it was too big and then put the small back on. (I had a stomach bug that day…hence not having a great picture of me with being able to see all of the dress! I didn't have many photos that night.) However, the small seemed to fit great although tight, and I did feel like it stretched a little by the end of the night. Herve Ledger dress often have a strange way of fitting…there is a strip of fabric that goes right over the boob, I think which pushes it down. I didn't wear a bra, and this is just something to be cautious of because while I didn't have a problem, I could see the need to readjust or your boob might pop out. I love being able to rent Herve Leger because it does not seem worth the cost, but his dresses are beautiful. This dress was fantastic! I would definitely consider renting this again!

I didn't wear it because it was too small and didn't get a backup size. :(

I ended up not being able to wear this and had to scramble to find another dress because I rented an XS and I couldn't even pull the dress up over my hips. I love this dress in theory, but wow, it is crazy tight. Definitely lean towards a bigger size.

Fun & Flirty...but so tight!

The dress was absolutely gorgeous...but has no give whatsoever! I was a college athlete and have a very muscular frame...and had a hard time zipping the dress over my butt, and pulling the sleeves up over my arms! The waist fit perfectly, but I was too scared to wear the dress out. I didn't want the seams to split and give a room full of strangers an eye-full! Definitely recommend going up a size for gals with curves.

Stunner!

From the color to the fit to the confidence it gives you, this dress is just absolutely stunning! If I could afford a brand spanking new Herve, I would invest it in this exact dress. I am typically a XS/S but in Herve, I'm most comfortable in an M.

Perfect Dress when you want to be the center of attention

Rented this for my birthday party at a hotel rooftop bar. I ordered the small and I'm not really a small so I didnt eat much the entire day. It was too tight for underwear and you can't really do a bra either. I used the double sided tape. The dess is worth all of the inconvenience though. My boyfriend loved it and so did everyone else. Nothing but stares and compliments all night.

Be prepared for lots of compliments!

This dress was absolutely amazing! It is very low cut and I wore it to a wedding so at the church I had a wrap around my chest, but I received tons of compliments. It is very attention grabbing so be prepared for looks. I had figured the small would fit best and had just ordered the xs with it on a whim, but the xs actually complimented my figure a lot better. Both were very difficult to get into (my roommate had to help me!) but its definitely worth it to go for the smaller size, it holds everything in. I also rented the necklace, its Oscar de la Renta and its called the Luxembourg statement necklace. Many of my friends said this made the dress!

Gorgeous dress tightens it all up for a pretty package. Lots of compliments on Valentine's day.

As an XS but a size D the fit was a bit off for me; the dress was tight and the girls were hanging out. If a Small was available I think the fit would have been better

Amazing new year in amazing dress!

I'm a HUGE fan of Herve dresses! When getting into it it feels like it will be too tight... But once you get it zipped up it's absolute magic! I previously rented a small by the same designer because xs was not available and it was way too big. Not sure if it was the fit of the small or that the dress was stretched out but I couldn't wear it. But this is an amazing dress that will suck you in and make you feel wonderful!

Red hot Herve Leger

No surprises here - this was a super tight dress (it IS an Herve Leger after all). I wouldn't recommend this is you're having a fat night/week. But if you want to look uber sexy, this is a great one. It's lower cut than I expected and again, really tight, but I loved the absolute sexiness about it.

Red hot dress....but didn't fit!

I rented this dress as a backup as my first choice was, due to unforeseen circumstances, unavailable. Time was running out, so despite the fact that the next size up in this dress was not available, I went with the XS. When I tried it on, it was a tad too small. I knew I would not be comfortable wearing it all evening, so I had to pass on this dress. I'm 5'1", 11lbs. I'm petite but with a very athletic body. I'm certain the S would have been perfect. It is certainly a gorgeous dress...I would love to rent this in the future in a larger size!
