Sexy and glam!

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!

The quality of the dress was superb! And I always love the ease in using RTR!!

The fit is tight, as is customary with the brand. But it feels very comfortable. The quality was superb. The colors were very vibrant! This is the perfect Vegas dress!

Amazing dress and fit!!

Although it's very tight to get into, once it's on it's extremely comfortable and fits like a glove! Extremely flattering! Was able to dance all night and received a TON of compliments! I would say it's true to size.

Simply Best Looking

Rented this for the wedding brunch. The fit was great, hugged my body in all the right places. I felt very confident in it and received a lot compliments. This was my first order from RTR , I did not know exactly how it all was going to work and I must say I am very impressed with everything, price, shipping speed, packaging, return process- everything. There is no question that I will be back. Now it is so clear to me that I don't even have that problem anymore- what to wear. I know RTR got my back. Wow.

I still continue to 3 weeks later get compliments on this dress!!!

So it was kind of a bitch to get on, (I apologize to the next person who wears it bc a chunk of my skin might be in the zipper still) but once it was on I've never worn such a comfortable dress. I didn't have to think about it all night

Felt like a rockstar

This fit like a glove. I felt sexy and beautiful. This was the perfect dress for my friends bachelorette party in Miami. The only con is that it bunched a little on the side where the zipper was but that's it! Would love to rent again.

It was too small

Rented the cd and the backup size small was taken. The fit was too tight for me to wear for my event.

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!!

Fun, flattering red dress

This dress was very form fitting, but it was stretchy so it was easy to fit on. It was very flattering and was tight in all the right places. I'm tall and it was a bit short. I might try a size small next time, but they were out this time and the xs worked out ok.

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!

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.

Loved the dress!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Loved how I felt in the dress! It's a get noticed kind of dress!

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 :-)

Great dress. Wore it to dinner and club in South Beach Miami. Got a ton of compliments. Only downfall of the dress is the size zipper sticks out a little. Would rent again. Thank you RTR!

Great color. Definitely stood out from the crowd.

Great color and lines. Agree with the comments about the zipper bulge on the right side but I got over it. Shorter than I prefer and not as flattering for smaller chest, IMHO. Wearing a Herve Leger dress was on my bucket list but I didn't realize how popular it would be/how early I could've reserved it. So I ended up with an XS. Probably needed a small but then not sure if it would've been too loose at the bust.

Great dress!!! Did not want to take it off!!

The other reviews are correct, the zipper bulges at the hip so you have to pull it down a lot.

Pop of color spot on.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Unique, Fun, Flattering Dress

This dress is vibrant & fun just like the picture! When it arrived I was worried it'd be too short (I am 5' 8") but was pleasantly surprised it hit only a couple inches above my knees. It's super comfortable & fits like a glove! The thick material & overlapping orange/red patten makes you feel held-in. I didn't need to wear a bra (36C cup). The only cons; the left arm-opening is tight & comes up high. The right strapless-side with the zipper is loose & worn out, so it sags. Even with fashion tape I kept having to pull it up & move the extra fabric

Color is vivid and catch people's eyes

I would rent size Small if it's still available. I would expect it to be super tight but I still have some room in this dress.
