Wasn't able to wear. Once I tried on the dress, it stretched out a hidden wine stain on front.
It's short and tight, like all of his dresses, it rocks confidence.

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.

Does the dress fit true to size? I am a size 4 also and only the XS is available.
KristineNovember 23, 2013
Rachelle- I think it runs a little small, but I guess it depends on your body type. The XS was too tight for me.

I wanted to love this dress so much and I did until I had it zipped up all the way.
This dress is beautiful and it hugs everything exactly right except the back below the nape of the neck. When it's fully zipped the zipper caused it to stick out from my back. It's kind of difficult to see in the picture. I had to return it. Maybe I'm not large enough up front to stretch out the excess fabric. I hope you are. It's such a sexy dress.

felt amazing!
When I received the dress it was brand new so I was super excited to try it on. The dress was amazing and the color was eye catching. Unfortunately I couldn't wear it to the even that I was planning, but planning to rent it again in the future. You can't help it but to feel like a million bucks with this dress!

Best Birthday Dress Ever.
My first Herve experience and I had the best time in this dress! I never fussed with it once and It fit me like a glove. I wore it on a 85 degree night and I wasn't sweating which was great. I wear a 32B and I had to go braless and use some double sided tape but everything stayed in all night. I can't tell you how happy I was in this dress. It was quite the head turner out on the Manhattan streets.

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.

I wore this spectacular dress to a party on a yacht in Monaco and got a million compliments!
The dress fit perfectly. It is not for shy women though as it is very formfitting and tight and draws a lot of looks. I loved it!

This outfit is EVERYTHING!!
I wore this dress for my birthday and it was the absolute best! Herve never disappoints but I would have to say that this is one of my favorites. I usually don't wear red but this red certainly stands out. In addition, it maximizes ALL of your assets. For me, it is my boobs so this dress gave me an ULTRA SEXY look. All evening my friends said, "You are working that dress"! If you are shy, this is NOT the dress to wear but if you are trying to make a statement when you walk in the room...well...this is IT. I wore a nice pearl and gold chunky necklace, stud earrings and bone color shoes. My makeup consisted of a smokey eye with gold accents and of course RED LIPS. The only thing negative I would say is that the dress had a slight stain on it which wasn't terribly noticeable so I still wore the dress. However, RTR should have caught that before sending. However, that has nothing to do with the dress itself (that's a RTR thing) so I will still give this 5 stars. Wear if you dare and enjoy!

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.

I felt stunning!
The bust of the size S was a little too wide so I squeezed into the XS. It holds you in perfectly without feeling constricting. I got TONS of compliments on this dress. Its the definition of sexy without being scandalous. I wore it with a wrap for the ceremony as it does amp up your cleavage. I felt like a million bucks.

Perfect date-night dress! The BF kept sneaking photos of me the whole night!
I loved this dress. I would definitely recommend wearing shape wear underneath it though. My boyfriend loved it. My only con would be that the neckline is lower than I anticipated. Had to wear a different bra than I'd planned, but it worked out. Overall, I loved this dress!

I have never seen more jaws drop or more heads do 180's! STUNNER!
LOVE LOVE LOVE. I wore this to a fancy dinner and it was a complete JAW DROPPER - guys and girls alike. The neckline is extremely low cut and it attracts major attention so if you're busty and not comfortable with that sort of action, this isn't the dress for you. Ran TTS (true to size) as most Herve Leger dresses do (on me at least). The sleeves provided more coverage and I thought that really balanced out the aesthetics of the dress. Love how the bottom of the dress scoops up a tiny bit in the middle. This is a beautiful, sexy dress.

Showstopper!!!
Love, love, love!!! Fit perfect! You should know what size you wear in HL before ordering. My boyfriend loved it and I felt super confident all night long. This dress is perfect for a night out on the town. Didn't need to pull it down when getting up or walking. Comfortable in the arms as well. Not for the faint of heart due to cleavage factor. Overall, it was my favorite dress from RTR.

SO. STUNNING.
This dress is incredible. Such a standout, especially for the holidays. The one thing I will say is that the fit is tricky if you have a larger bust. I'm a 34 C and mine were popping out. It ended up looking fine, but any larger and it would be really risque. My chest looked very out there as it was. But I still loved it--super hot dress.

Pictures don't do it justice!
I would love to own this dress, it's timeless, classic, and sexy. Fit was like a glove, once zipped it's very comfortable and holds everything in. I was able to wear a regular low cut plunge bra with it which I was worried about beforehand since I didn't know if the dress would be too low for a bra. Simple accessories are best, I tried it with a large statement necklace and it was just too much, went with a classic diamond necklace and single bangle and it was perfect. Let the dress speak for itself. Absolutely amazing dress and probably the favorite Herve dress I've worn out of 10 or so!

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.

Sexy, low-cut, form fitting dress!
I was approached by a woman at the party who repeatedly said I looked fantastic, and that my cleavage was impressive. She then gently poked each of my breasts! I wear a 36C or a 34D, and while I do have breasts, they are widely spaced, so I don't really have cleavage. But I had cleavage in this dress! Even my friend said she couldn't stop staring at my cleavage. But because the neckline is so low, I couldn't wear a bra with the dress. So keep in mind a bra may not be possible before you rent this one. It may not be obvious in the picture, but the top part of the dress was a little loose. I don't know if it's cut that way or if it had been stretched out. There were also two small holes on the seam on the left leg. They were very tiny, and I am the only one who noticed them. RTR should be able to fix them easily because they are right on the seam. This is why I am only giving it 4 as opposd to 5 stars. But all in all, I loved the dress, and I am thinking of renting the same one in another color.

Not for full-busted
Beautiful dress, but not for women who are a C+ cup. This dress will flatter those who have an hourglass figure, but it is VERY VERY low-cut. While this dress fit, I could not wear this dress to my party because the incredibly low neckline made the dress look obscene when worn. This dress would be fine for someone with more of a pear-shaped body.

LOVE the dress
I felt so confident in the dress and did get compliments all night. The front cut was a little lower than I would prefer. Sometimes I got a little too much attention if you know what I mean. Over all I felt great, I didn't wear a bra, but I did throw in some "chicken cutlets" for a little more volume since I'm lacking in that department :o)

I loved wearing the Herve Leger for my fashion show. It was a HOT dress
I loved this dress, I only got one size because the Small that I actually wanted was ruined so they couldnt send it. I am pretty small and the XS was VERY tight. It worked but it kept coming down in the front because of the deep V and the size issue. My bra was showing half the time. Other then that I loved the dress I would just get a bigger size then usual since Herve runs small anyway.
JillOctober 15, 2014
You look super cute, I am about the same size as you a size zero and I am a 32C as well, being petite and full busted I think you will be able to relate , did you feel like you were going to spill out of the dress all night, was your bra constantly showing, and lastly did you have any VPL issues, are you able to wear a thong, I have heard many say with a herve if you wear any panties at all it will leave a noticeable panty line, did you have any VPL issues?

Sexy dress!
This dress will definitely get some attention! Wore this for my 10th anniversary with my husband and felt amazing! Fit was perfect and snug and definitely needed some help getting zipped up, but it was comfortable and easy to move around in. Be warned that it is a deep v neck and if you aren't comfortable showing some cleavage, this dress isn't for you.

I was complimented all night!
I loved the fit of this dress! I just had a baby and it made me feel sassy and glamorous. It is very low cut, but when accessorized with the right necklace it's perfect. double sided tape also helped make me feel more secure in the dress.

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!

Hugs every curve!
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.

Unwearable. Waaaaay too low-cut.
Perfect for a stripper convention in Vegas or an audition for The Bachelor. Otherwise, completely unwearable because of the low neckline. It would work for those who want people staring at their chest all night, but otherwise....be warned. In fairness, I was forewarned, but I kept thinking "it can't be that bad". It was.

The best dress for small chested ladies!
I am obsessed with the dress! I am a 34A and this dress gave me the best cleavage I have ever had. I usually wear a size small or extra small. Only the XS was available for my event so I went with it- definitely a little bit of a struggle to get on but it worked. The cut is really low so I wouldn't recommend wearing a regular bra with it.

Loved it!
This dress was fantastic. I loved its simplicity, slick look, and sophisticated sexiness. The fit was great, snug but not too tight, it zipped up with ease. The top (shoulder and ribcage) had some room to spare but nothing to affect the look. The neckline is super low - I had to pin it. Would rent it again, my favorite rental so far.
