The process couldn't have been easier.
This dress was so comfortable! I worried about the process for weeks. All went very smoothly! I received many compliments on the dress. The Herve Leger dresses fit like spanx. It's amazing!!

It was a flattering dress...the lines accentuate your waist and the material smooths out imperfections. I have a full bust and this dress shows a good amount of cleavage so may not be a good choice for a conservative event. Length hit right at the knees. Well constructed dress and in good condition.

I felt like a goddess!
Amazing dress! Herve bandage dresses are perfect for all body types. Enough stretch but a substantial fabric that doesn't feel flimsy at all. I could have gone smaller in the hips but then the bust wouldn't have worked, the girls were already squished. Deep V means no bra and fashion tape needed if you plan on bending over or dancing a lot. I wore this to dinner, so just sitting. I found the shoulder just ever so slightly too wide and long for my frame, but only noticeable by me. Also the dress seemed a bit stretch in the tummy area compared to a new Herve. But that's a rental hazard. I love his dress and wish I could own it. Photographs and wears amazingly. Plum color is perfect for fall and winter evenings.

Shorter ladies - rent with the Hollywood temporary tape!
Low-cut and fun! I'm short so I temporarily hemmed it above my knee with the Hollywood tape, and it looked better with my frame.

It was my first rental and the drop off was easy
This dress hugs you like a dream. I'm busty for my waist so I wore a scarf to cover up the deep cleavage.

This dress fits like a glove and is extremely comfortable. In my book that makes it perfect!
Make sure you get a size down from what you think you usually wear. Will this dress, the smaller size is more flattering because it holds everything in the right places. This is the third Herve Leger I have rented and after the first time I knew that it would be a guaranteed success. I am 38 and have two kids and work out regularly and this dress made me feel like the best of myself. The lines around the ribcage and under the breasts add an extra magical slimming effect! Oh, did i tell you that it is sexy?

Felt great in this dress!
This was a great dress and overall nice fit. I wish I went with the XS, but I got 2 dresses and could only get 2 sizes in one. The dress came on time and in great condition. I would say that my biggest complaint is that I didn't get any other the added "goodies" that everyone talks about. These didn't come with either of my dresses this time or my past order either. I wonder if RTR has stopped doing this. I really hope not, that added feature really contributed to the experience...

Bachelorette!
I wore this for my bachelorette party. Compared to previous Herve's I've rented, this one seemed to run large and didn't hug me as tightly, probably because it has been rented many many times before. It is a VERY low neckline, so you either need to have a small bust or be comfortable rocking a lot of cleavage. The style was flattering for my high waist.

Looking sharp at my best friend's wedding!
This dress seemed to run a bit smaller than the other herve I rented. The small was more flattering to my front but gave me back "cleavage" so the medium it was. Not too low cut and not too short. Perfect when you want to look hot but not slutty.

Chic, flattering and sexy, yet understated
The overall fit was very snug; I usually wear a small, but I could barely breathe in the small even though it fit. I didn't order the Medium originally because it was unavailable; however, RTR saved the day when I called to say it was too small--they rush delivered the Medium the next day at no extra charge. The Medium was much more comfortable but gapped a little in the waist. The material is thick and holds everything in. Received many compliments and look forward to renting again

Great Dress for Going Out and Party In!
I rented this dress for clubbing in Vegas. I was very surprised how tight the medium was. I would def size up to a large for my next herve leger purchase. Other than the tightness the dress was fantastic. Throughout the night the dress lossen up a bit because of all my dancing. You need to be confident to wear this dress. It showed every curve! It looks exactly how it is suppose to look in the picture. The back does dip down slightly lower than my bra but I wore a black bra and it blended in perfectly. We went on a club crawl this night and I got several compliments from strangers. This should be every girl's little black dress with a purple twist. Thank you RTR!

Wow!
Had this dress on my wish list and found it to be the perfect dress for a wedding. Loved the fit, loved the color. My husband has officially dubbed this the wetsuit dress. Getting it zipped is a challenge, but it really does hug you in all the right places and it's extremely comfortable. Herve is now at the top of my list for every occasion!

Definitely a head turner
Oh my gawd. This dress. It almost made me feel like I was turning all the attention away from the bride. I'm a petite pear and the S fit me like a glove. Not very stretchy sideways which tucks you in, but very stretchy vertically, making it a breeze to sit comfortably and to dance in (and feel sexy while dancing). I folded and hem-taped the bottommost "section" in since I didn't want it so close to my knees and it stayed all night. I wore nubra with it since I have small boobs. The dress just barely covered it and I taped it down, but you could still see the bra from the side. I didn't care too much since I would rather flash my bra than to have no boobs visually, but I still felt a little insecure. Pretty much all the guys were checking me out left and right (and front and probably back lol)! My boyfriend had a hard time pretending not to notice those stares. Photographs like an ordinary dress but in person it's definitely a show stopper. I would rent it again.

Tons of compliments on this dress. Love that it's the perfect LBD with a little twist.
Dress fit great, but was quite stretched out. Herve dresses are typically almost impossible to put on (like the additional dress that I rented), but clearly this one may have seen a few too many renters. Gorgeous conservative dress with just a tiny bit of cleavage and tightness for a bit of covert sexiness. I'm 5'8" and the length went well below my knee, as well. Shorter renters may way to pin it up a bit for the night, or wear super high heels.

Gorgeous dress - Sexy sophistication
I had to try on three other dresses before finding one that fit, but this one fit practically perfectly. It looks just like the photo and hugs curves well. I bought spanx to go with it, but in retrospect it wasn't necessary. Not sure what to say other than this dress is phenomenal and I can't wait to find an occasion for another Hervé Léger item! *Keep in mind that if you have a larger bust you will definitely be showing some cleavage.

Wore this to a Fashion Show and received a lot of compliments. Again....under-stated sexy which I love about HL!!! The accent color is more of a rich plum and isn't as dark as it appears online. Didn't need spanx or a bra (36DD) and didn't worry about things being out of place the entire evening! Definitely recommend for a dinner party as well! Hopes this helps :o)

perfect dress for looking sophisticated and sexy but not enough to outshine the beautiful bride!!
I rented this dress because of the contrast and design on the back. It's very flattering and gives the illusion of a waist and hips for a gal like me: I'm top heavy (32C), have a short torso, and my waist and hips are about the same in width, so there's not much curve there, but the contrast and detail made it appear that way. It holds everything in enough that you don't have to wear a bra, but I do recommend pasties for cold nights... only issue was that the sleeves seemed a bit stretched and I noticed in photos from the side that you almost see the shape of my breast through the armhole. Other than that, it still very suitable and appropriate for a wedding with kids and sexy enough to impress the boyfriend :-)

The dress arrived the morning of the day I was supposed to receive it. I was perfect, they even sent me Hollywood tape, but i didn't need it.
I received compliments all night long! my husband loved it and was so proud that his woman was one of the hot chics of the night! I told my sister in law the dress was rented and she immediately joined RTR.

I love this dress! I'm pear-shaped, so it was a little big in the waist, but fit nicely everywhere else. Fun & sexy...I will definitely rent more from this designer in the future.

I rented this dress and sinful cinnamon for a NYE party. Both dresses were beautiful & sexy, but this one seemed unique & effortless. This dress will enhance the bust, so your eyes are drawn upward. As a small B, this dress gave me so much cleavage! I was feeling a little shy about that at first, but got over it pretty quickly. The color blocking, subdued colors, and length of the dress, give it an even balance between sexy, modern, and classy. I accepted the offer to have one of the RTR stylists surprise me with a matching accessory rental for $15. They surprised me with the "Through the Looking Glass bracelet by Badgley Mischka. I did not wear it, because I didn't think it matched well with this dress. I ended up wearing darker, gunmetal jewelry, chandelier earrings & chunky bracelet.

perfect party dress
This dress fit absolutely perfectly! I went to several parties/venues the night I wore it and felt amazing. My date even mentioned that all eyes were on me everywhere we went! I wore it with black pumps and drop earrings - simple accessories. Also, I have never been able to wear anything without a bra for at least 10 years, but with this dress I didn't need one! This dress does wonders for the figure! I would rent it again in a heartbeat.

This dress is simply amazing! The way it made my body look for a night out in Vegas was simply miraculous! My husband was impressed, and said even he could tell it was a special design. I loved the contrast color for waist definition on my fairly straight bod. My friend said it was the first time she had even seen me look so curvy! Would rent again in a heartbeat.

This dress is so pretty! I got the small since they did not have an XS and I am sure it is true to size but it was big on me since I wear the latter. not too low cut. Very classy. You can wear a regular bra with it.

Walking into the room and knowing that I looked amazing
This dress is beautiful and perfect for a wedding. I rented both the XS and S. Both fit and looked almost identical on. But the S was a little looser and more comfortable, so that's what I wore. The bust and straps were a little loose, but it wasn't noticeable. This was my first rental. Can't wait to rent more!

Sultry but formal
Great dress, fit fairly true to size. I wear a 4/6. Slightly tighter across the chest than the waist/hips on me. Would work well for a more hourglass/slightly curvy shaped woman. Beautiful colors, great fit. Sexy but not overly so. Works well for a wedding!

I had ordered another dress, but when it became unavailable, I got a chance to rent this amazing one
Great to wear with a regular bra, but I did have to keep making sure the back wasn't sticking out too much. This is absolutely gorgeous dress, and I got tons of compliments on it. Thanks RTR!!

Hi there! I am 5'2'' as well and was wondering how you felt about the length? I'm nervous about it being too long. Thank you!
