My favorite rental to date!!
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!

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.

LOVED wearing this dress
I had so much fun wearing this dress at my bachelorette party - it fit really well and looked amazing. Very comfortable and well made - was the perfect length. It goes with so many shoes as well!

I was nominated for the best dress at the wedding! It was perfect!
The dress fit great and was very flattering. I typically wear a dress size 2-4 and wore the medium which came as a back up replacement. Loved the dress and got many compliments.

A week after the wedding, still getting compliments!
This was my first rental and I'm completely obsessed! This dress fit amazingly and was a perfect pop of color at my brothers fall wedding. I got SO many compliments and even saw it posted on a celebrity fashion blog a few days later! Don't pass it up!

Holy crap amazing.
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!

Gorgeous! Very flattering!
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!
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.

Loved this dress- was a great fit and felt comfortable & confident all night
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.

Bombshell dress
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!
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!
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!
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!

This dress was awesome! It fit great and the color was bold! You definitely get noticed in this dress! It's very form fitting, yet still comfortable. I definitely recommend wearing spanx!

Best birthday dress ever!
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.

So many compliments in South Beach!
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.

Will rent again! The colors are so vibrant, and the material is think enough to hold everything in.
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 :(

Didn't fit, and was not flattering :(
RTR only has XS available, which is my size, but i was unable to get a backup dress in S. Turns out, it runs *really* small, and i couldn't get the dress to zip up all the way. If a backupsize of small had been available it would have been fine. I ended up wearing one of my own dresses to the weekend party i was attending. I also thought this dress was most unflattering for a tall skinny/athletic build, especially when viewed from the side. As much as i love the look of the dress, i can't recommend it.

Gorgeous, form fitting dress that is a show stopper!
Only the XS was available and all the wishing and squeezing in the world did not make it workout for me, unfortunately! I could have pulled off a S, but not an XS. I will certainly rent again, but lots farther in advance!

Beautiful dress, you will not go unnoticed.
The dress was well made. The medium size is too low cut for me. Luckily, I was able to squeeze into the small size, but the zipper was hard to pull up, it also curved at the wrong places. it would look so much better if I am 10lbs lighter. Over all it's still a beautiful dress!

I got so many compliments on this dress!!! Definitely stands out!
It fits like a glove! You think it is going to be uncomfortable and you will be "sucking it in" the whole night but it is so well made that it holds your shape beautifully and moves so well with your body. It was extremely comfortable and could be worn for hours!

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.

I had a cocktail party and rented this dress hoping that I wouldn't feel too self conscious if I actually wanted to eat in it! I felt great all night and had so many compliments! Fabric is forgiving and though it's tight, once you're in, you feel comfortable, not suffocated!

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.

Very tight & runs small!
I rented this dress for Vegas for my birthday and found that it was extremely tight. I am giving it three stars because the pattern is quite pretty and the material is thick and you can tell it's well-made. I got the Medium and was going to size up to Large for my second size, but the Large was unavailable. The medium was extremely tight even in the waist which was surprising because that's usually the area where dresses are looser on me. I ended up exchanging it for another dress at the RTR in Vegas. The exchange process was easy and everyone was very helpful.

couldn't wear it, wayyyyyy too small
I read all the details and looked at other women my size and shape. I ordered a small and an x-small and couldn't even get the zipper up on the small without removing a rib. It was so tight around my legs that there is no way I could've walked or done more than stand in the dress.

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.

Absolutely loved this dress. Flattering and so much fun to wear.
I'm quite tall, so I was worried about the length. Not too worry -- it was on the shorter side but also totally reasonable. I wore this to a big birthday party and got so many compliments. People were blown away by how fun the colors were. I think the dress is a great combination of sexy and fun. I would 100% recommend it. The colors are bright, though, so make sure you're aware of that going in!

Herve Leger does is again
Love the colors and bold pattern! Wore this in Vegas for my birthday party. I normally wear an XS but this was a tight squeeze. I'd rent again because I love the design, but probably go with a small.

Perfect red dress!
Herve knows how to make a dress fit like a glove! I describe his fabric like 'butter' - it smooths the body and hugs tight, but is so comfortable. I had read others say they thought this ran small, and my size is typically an XS or S, so I had hoped to order a S and a M. Both S and M were out, so I took my chances on the XS and it fit perfect. I was a little concerned the strapless side would pull too low with movement but it stayed in place all night without any issues. The side zipper puckered just a little bit. This didn't bother me, just sharing everything I can think of to help you! The length was just above my knee - so it was appropriate (not too short). I wore this to an Art Ball and it was perfect! The color is vibrant! I wore diamond/sparkly accents, but this dress is the main event so you don't need too much else! I also wore 'Betsey Johnson Blue' - "Ella" silver sparkly heels. They went great with it!
