Loved!!!! Petite and Curvy!!
This dress was amazing. I got it for a dance party. It was so comfortable and flattering. I took the suggestion and ordered a size up (S/M) and ended up wearing the small. Only negative was having to pin the dress to my strapless bra. Only because the top of the bra kept showing. Couldn't tell. Wore this to a dance festival and it was lovely all night. Definitely best bang for your buck with this dress. My friend also tried on the small and medium and would've been able to wear either (standing next to me), but chose to wear something she thought was more comfortable for the way she moved.

Was great for Vegas!!!!
I am 5'9 and 34DD it fit like a glove! I did have to play with it a little on the side with no strap to hold the girls up! LOL I was not a fan of the zipper as it is on the side on on the one dress i rented it really stuck out but I got over it. It is heavier then it looks in the pictures and is a great quality!!!!

Perfect Vegas club dress
I've rented a few Herve' dresses and really liked this one. It runs small but has a side zipper instead of back zipper so it's easier to get off and on. I wore the xs but probably would have been a little more comfortable in the small. This dress is so slimming and really ticks it all in for you. Was a definite crowd pleaser, had a blast rocking it in Vegas.

Definitely snug, but so flattering. Be ready to have someone help you zip!
This dress is VERY form fitting, so you want it to be tight. The tight fit is incredibly flattering, and in order to look best you don't want bunching or gathering in any area. I went with the XS and I needed someone to help me with zipping it all up, but it ended up looking amazing and being super comfortable.

Very flattering and fun dress
This dress is very form-fitting yet comfortable. I am 5'11 and it hit about mid-thigh, and ran pretty true to size. I would definitely recommend this dress if you are looking for a fun and different dress for a formal, night out, or party!

Flattering HL
I went for a pop of color with this one. HL always fits me very well and I love the thick bandage materials. The top boob area was a little ill fitting.. Stretch out?...I had to keep my eye on it so I didn't slip out.

hugged all the right places
This was my first rent the runway purchase and I love, love, loved it! I liked all of the details of the dress and the stripes made it really stand out in a sea of black dresses. It was snug, and bunched up on the side where my hand is, but I felt comfortable in it the whole night and I felt like I could move! I was so happy with my RTR purchase that I will definitely be doing it for more events! 5'0", 105lbs, muscular build

Form fitting sassy number
I LOVED this dress. I rarely EVER wear an extra-small but it was the only size available for the dates of the event so I said what the heck and ordered it. I am over the moon happy that I did. This is by far my favorite dress I have rented from RTR. I needed someone to help me zip it up but once I got it zipped, it was like a glove, but comfortable. I was able to move around, breath, eat a ton, dance, and it stayed put while still allowing room for comfort. The design of the dress allows for a bit of stretch since the fabric is very flexible. I was receiving compliments all night long and I did not want to return the dress the next day. The dress is well designed, great for a party, especially when you want to stand out in a sea of dark colors. HIGHLY recommend! Also, a few more notes on the size, I have a small chest so it was easy to get the top zipped up but if you are bigger than a 34B you may feel a little uncomfortable. I didn't pop out of the top but with my hands above my head, there was definitely some side-boob action. That may not have happened with a small but it did with the extra small.

Beautiful dress but large in the bust
This dress looks great on. The medium felt great everywhere with the exception of the bust area. I'm a D-cup and there was room in the top. Anyone smaller than a B-cup may have an issue with the top part of the dress.

Perfect for a night out!!
I rented this dress for my 32nd birthday in Las Vegas and absolutely loved it! I wore the Medium, it was a little stretched out under the arms and in the shoulder but it still worked. A Small may have fit better but it wasn't available. I truly felt amazing in this dress, my boyfriend agreed. I highly recommend it!!

Show stopper!
I loved loved this dress! It was nice to be the pop of color in a sea of black dresses. And I received tons of compliments. It moved easily and allowed me to dance. Fit exactly as I expected. I did find the top a little stretched out so has to use double sided tape along the underarm to keep my strapless bra from showing. Otherwise it was perfect.

Va-va-voom Formal Dress!
I LOVED this dress. It was a really cool form-fitting, yet thick fabric, and the pattern looked really smooth. I wore it to my law school barrister's ball on Valentine's day. The color is super bright, which I really liked. It was TIGHT though. I managed to fit into the size I ordered, but I honestly had some trouble breathing. I could've done well to wear the small, but they didn't have it in stock when I ordered. I couldn't wear any undergarments to make it fit. However, I do have curvy hips in proportion to the rest of my size, and I was able to squeeze into a tight dress (which doesn't always happen). Definitely recommend!

I turned 40 last week and wanted to wear a designer dress on my vacation to Jamaica. Great dress
I wear a 4-6 but decided on a medium because it looked like the small would be too tight. The medium was to big up top and and I had room in the middle. It was short but def a BEAUTY!!

I felt like my breast could pop out if I wasn't careful. Cannot wear any type of bra, wore an adhesive bra and it stay showed if I lifted my arms. Btw this dress is the same dress Mindy Kallig wore on her show the Mindy Project!!

Way too small!
I read through all the reviews and decided to rent the XS since I am usually a size 0 or 2. This dress is so much smaller than I expected! I couldn't even zip it over my hips and I don't have hips. I wish it had worked! But after this experience, I don't think I would rent this designer again.

Gorgeous dress...Couldn't wear it :(
The dress was absolutely gorgeous, unfortunately I was not able to wear it. While the body fit well, the bust was far too stretched out from previous renters- and this was noticeable (material is visibly stretched out).

I am 5'6 and 123 lbs and the xs was tight but in a good way ;) Was comfortable all night! Only con is the side with the zip bunches if you don't stand up straight. Would rent again!

Very Bright
It was a great dress. Did bunch a bit on the side where the zipper is but not as bad as others mentioned. It was pretty short but still looked great. The colors are very vibrant. It's a lovely HERVÉ and was thick and smoothed out my whole body!

SO flattering, comfortable and absolutely stunning!
I wore this dress to my sorority's semi formal. Traditionally everyone wears red dresses, and this dress definitely stood out! It was SO slimming, kept everything sucked in all night. I ordered the medium and XS as my backup, because the small was out of stock. If anything, I would recommend sizing down - I have a full chest and the one shoulder was a little loose, so a small would have been perfect. But the medium worked great! I wore a nude strapless bra. This was my first rental experience and I couldn't have been happier. Wish I could wear it to semi formal every year! Thanks RTR!

The dress is stunning. Couldn't have made a better choice.
The dress is absolutely gorgeous and I could not have received better compliments. Herve Leger has very form fitting, thicker material, tight dresses so be prepared for that! I'm a tall, thin, athletic build (usually a size 2 or 4) so the small fit well. However (although I'm clearly not massive or anything), but because I do lift weights the dress was pretty tight around my shoulders, back, and under my armpits. So if you have any muscle to your upper body at all, maybe move up a size.

Dress was awesome. They didn't have an xs so I only ordered the small and just hoped it would fit and it fit perfect! It was very fitting but not too tight and a perfect length! Was so great for my fall formal.

I absolutely love Herve Leger and this dress will forever be my favorite dress I've ever worn. It was insanely comfortable, photographed beautifully, and turned plenty of heads. I wanted a small but they only had an XS available and it fit amazingly. Great dress I would absolutely recommend it

Bright and very flattering dress!
I wore size M just because S wasn't available. I still think that S would've been just perfect. The fit as you would expect from this designer is amazing. The color stands out and I got tons of compliments. I wore it for my 30th birthday which I themed as s cocktail soirée. The dress was super comfortable and I loved it.

Loved the dress. It was stretched out in the top and the zipper didn't exactly lay flat. I made the medium work but should have gone with the small.

A striking dress sure to make it a great night.
I don't have much of a waist but felt the pattern helped provide one but of course it always helps to suck it in and work an angle if you're taking a picture. The dress itself bunched a bit at the waist - I don't know if it's because it's been in rotation for a while or I actually needed a small.

I could have sized down to a small if avail to avoid pulling up the top all night. Super easy to dance in in Miami.

I loved the overall style and elegance of the HL dress. Not the usual HL bandage lines.
I normally wear a 0/2 but could not get the zipper up on my chest on the size 2 without major help. I tried on the second size (4) and it was HUGE in the chest and unflattering. I had to literally suck it up and wear the size 2.

I wore this for my company's holiday party. I loved the bold colors and pattern. Only thing I didn't like was when I zipped it up on the left side, it was crunched up. The fabric was high quality and comfortable.

Stunning dress!
Wow! Every single person who saw a picture of me in this dress commented on how gorgeous it is! It was perfect for a date night out in Vegas. It had a snug fit, which was good because I think it made it more flattering. The dress is made of such quality material - You can tell it's a designer dress just by feeling it. LOVE this dress!

It is a beautiful, high quality dress. I was sad to send it back!
Gorgeous color and dress, I thought it was very comfy. The medium was a tad big on me, but small was not available for my rental. I would call this true to size. Super flattering. I wore an adhesive bra from Target with the dress and it stayed in place all night.

I loved this dress, it was sexy without showing too much. Loved the color and the fabric and I'm glad I read the reviews and went with the XS (I'm usually a S).
