Best birthday dress ever!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I didn't plan to order this, it was a replacement for a Clover Canyon dress that they weren't able to send. I wasn't excited about it because a) I don't like 1 shoulder dresses and b) I thought the red would look too "Christmas-y". WRONG! This was my favorite RTR to date - I didn't have to wear a bra, it didn't ride up or down or have the usual too long of straps problems that Herve's tend to, and most importantly I felt like a million bucks at my birthday bash! It is a GREAT alternative to a black or white dress and will definitely be an attention getter! SO thrilled my original dress fell through.

My favorite rental to date!!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is absolutely gorgeous!! I was able to squeeze myself into the XS, but I definitely would've been more comfortable in the S. What this dress did for my waist was unbelievable! It was the perfect length for me too since I'm so short. I loved the one shoulder and the design is even prettier in person. No bra needed! I felt like a million bucks! I can't wait to rent another Herve Leger dress! They feel like butter!

Overall fit: True to Size

Unfortunately, there were issues with my order and I only received my dresses the day I needed to send them back (UPS’s fault not RTR’s). So I didn’t get to wear any of my dresses. However, to be honest I am kind of happy with how that worked out. HL dresses are thick and heavy. Not entirely ideal for summer. Regardless, this one is clearly not a winter dress. Very beautiful and unique. I am not sure I would rent it for another occasion just because this was never my 1st choice but I think it’s still a nice dress that’s much more fun than a some LBD.

Sexy Dress

It was an amazing fit, the only reason it did not get 5 stars was that at the zipper it bulged. So in pictures i always had to have my hand on my hip to keep it down or my hips looked uneven. Other than that the dress fit wonderfully and was beautiful.

Holy crap amazing.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to a really good friend's wedding and I was showered with so many compliments. And not just you look good, but WHOA! YOU LOOK HOT! It was pretty amazing. I felt great and the dress fit so perfectly. I've always wanted to rent one of these dresses and never had the nerve... but I'm so glad that I did it. I'm not a fancy, girly girl so it was a shocker for a lot of people. I wore easy wedge heels so I didn't fall down and it still worked. I have a big chest & shoulders because of weightlifting, so I never wear dresses without any give... so this was a good fit as it just stretched around everything. I wore a strapless bra and pinned it to the side of the dress without the strap so that it wouldn't show. There were a few photos of me where it looked a little low on the strapless side and I felt I was showing too much side skin, but everyone told me it looked fine. Really, this was such a fun thing to wear, I can't wait to do it again!

Snug to put on, but once you get it there - pow! Thick banded fabric gets everything in the right places and keeps it there. This was the first RTR dress my husband asked if I could buy. I will definitely be renting this one again!

This was sent as a second choice. I was told the one I ordered was damaged beyond repair, so I picked this one out last minute and it was shipped immediately. Customer service was great! The dress was spectacular. Even for a bandage dress this was a difficult one to get into, but it looked amazing. I got tons of compliments!

It was my fiftieth and through rent the runway I was reminded there is life I the old girl yet!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
It fit like a glove. Sucked me in at all the right spots. I wanted a wear a bra because it flattened my tiny bosom right out. I couldn't make it work with one although I guess if you are good with tape you could do something about that. Previous reviewers mentioned that the zipper buckled and it does. You can see it in the photo on the right hand side of the dress near my waist/hip area. But as the night wore on I ceased to care as everyone said I looked fantastic and u felt truly wonderful! Def try this dress on on the store as I did. I never would have picked it online (even though my daughter picked it out for me, and she turned out to be right) but my friend and the stylist talked me into it and I am so glad they did.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this for a christmas party. I wore the size medium and am typically a 6 or an 8. I think it ran very true to size but i noticed as soon as i took it out of the bag to wear it, it kind of puckered up at the chest. B/c i have a chest it was fine b/c i filled it out- but it's definitely a little stretched out (particularly in the chest area). I felt great all night and got lots of compliments on the dress. If i had somewhere fun and festive to go again and wanted a 'hot little dress' i would definitely rent this one again! The color is really great in person and so flattering with the lines/design.

Pros: Great for tiny girls with no clevage...size 0 size 2 this is YOUR dress! Great color! Great length! One shoulder cute look, necklace is not needed with this at all! Cons: VERY tight dress, need help with zipper, really hugs you! I wouldn't suggest sitting for a 3 course meal in this dress! Must be worn with heels for full effect, great for a smaller girl, shows off your legs!

Bombshell dress

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
I rented this dress but ended up sharing it with my BFF (who had rented another HL dress from RTR, we swapped the second night!) and we both looked awesome in it. See my body type/measurements above, I'm not exactly "bombshell" material, but this dress did help me look more sexy and less straight up and down. My BFF really looked amazing in this dress; she's 5'2", size 0, 34C, and has a booty. This dress made her itty bitty waist look like nothing, and she truly looked bombshell in it! Men and women would not stop complimenting her! It wasn't too long on her either, but it wasn't too short on me. Would absolutely recommend this dress

Stood out in a crowd of black dresses. Endless compliments!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Had the S been available, I would have ordered/worn it, but I was only able to rent an XS and M. I would usually go down a size- not up- but the XS was tiny! Without trying on my true size, I'd say that it runs small because I'd usually not be able to wear a M, but it was fine (just slightly roomy in the top if I'm being picky). In the future, I'd order Herve Leger dresses in an S and an M. Not only did I stand out in photos and receive complements all night, but my photos on social media received rave reviews about the dress!

I got so many compliments on this dress, I loved it!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress is very heavy and form fitting and sucks everything in. I ordered a M but I'm only 5'2 so it was a little low on the non-strap side and I had to keep pulling it up to cover my strapless bra. There was also a little bit of bunching on the zipper side of the dress, I think also because I don't have a long torso. But I received SO many compliments on this dress and I would totally wear it again. If I can lose a few lbs and get into a S it would probably be a better fit for my height :)

Sexy and glam!

Size worn: M
Rented for: Party
This was my first time wearing a dress by this designer so I was not sure what to expect, but this dress killed it. I may have needed a buddy to help me get into the dress, but once I was all zipped up the dress held everything in! I was shocked at how slimming the dress ended up being, and the color is really fabulous. As far as the fit goes, the dress is supposed to be tight, so take the "runs small" review with a grain of salt. I did not try the large on but I suspect that it would have fit me as well since the dress is such a tight style. The only thing that was annoying was that the top of the dress on the strapless side was a little low, so sometimes the top of my strapless bra would show. Other than that, loved everything about this dress!

Loved this dress! The color was fantastic! I rented it for our rehearsal dinner for our wedding, and it was a smash hit! The only not so great comment I would have is about the fit…the right side of the dress was somewhat loose and it bunched up a little bit, but it wasn't that bad.

So many compliments in South Beach!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this to a convention event in South Beach. The style was "South Beach chic" and this dress is the epitome of South Beach. The zipper does bulge out a bit but otherwise it was a very comfortable fit. I went with a pinkish nude lipstick and smoky eyes which seemed to really accentuate the sexiness of the dress. I was surprised at how comfortable I felt wearing this dress as I usually do not wear short, tight dresses.

This dress is SMOKIN' HOT!!!!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Prepare for the compliments from men and women both! This dress makes you stand out in a sea of black. The fit is tight, so tight that I didn't wear a bra (did have nip covers though) and minimal undies. No Spanx needed and the dress is fairly short (upper thigh). Like others, the zipper bunched a bit on the hip, but wan't really an issue. I wore a black short sweater because I was at a business black-tie optional event and burgundy colored pumps that matched the main color. Great dress! Will definitely rent it again. Absolutely gorgeous!

This dress would be flattering on most body types, because of the thickness, stretch and quality of the material. I am very petite but busty, and the cut was absolutely perfect. This is my favorite dress that I've ever worn and am now considering buying it! I obviously highly recommend it. I'm so bummed I didn't take a picture :(

Size worn: S

It's a tight fit as always with the Herve leger dresses. A regular strapless bra worked well and I put a little tape on the non strap side so the bra would show when I moved. Definitely look to rent this again. Only 'con' is random strangers may shout out 'I love that dress', so this isn't the dress for you if you want to be a wallflower :-)
