Constant compliments on this dress all night long!
It was initially a bit of a squeeze to get fully zipped into the dress, but as the night went on it loosened a bit. The material is so comfortable and forgiving that it didn't look too tight though. The fit and colors make this a very WOW dress. I loved this dress!!!

Got this for a night out in Vegas - it looked awesome and fit like a glove! Loved this dress!
Fit perfect, true to size and was super comfortable for the night. No room for a bra and little room for underwear (need to wear something that doesn't show lines). Great dress!

I wore this for a friend's wedding--all the women at my table were wearing red!
I was unsure about the color combo on this dress, but in person it is much more subtle and flattering. The fit is flattering and I felt sexy and polished in it. I am a breastfeeding mama and although my breast spilled out slightly on the shoulder-less side, it was comfortable and I felt covered.

Showed every curve!
I really like this dress, but the top seemed a little stretched out. The overall fit was good, though. The material is heavy, which was very expensive feeling.

Wore for date night in Vegas
Fitted but not too tight. Comfortable to wear. A little loose under the armpit/boob area and did some weird bunching on one side around the hip area but was manageable (these 2 factors are the only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars). My date loved the dress! Very sexy but still classy.

Stand Out in the Crowd
I liked the dress but you can tell it had been worn a great deal. The material was stretched out a little bit and didn't fit as well as other HL dresses.

Perfect for Barristers Ball!
The colors are bright and as pictured. I wore the XS as it was the only size available but the XXS probably would have been a better choice. The dress was slightly longer than I would want but this is something I'm used to with my height. The top bust area was a bit stretched out, but I am a B cup and wore it with a thick padded bra and it was fine once all zipped up! I did have to keep an eye on it to make sure the top didn't slide down to reveal the top of my bra but that wasn't too much of an issue. I paired it with a high ponytail/updo to show off the one-shoulder and it looked great!

Bordy confirming but hides wobbly bits. Piper side buckles a little but only when standing a certain way. Definitely recommend this dress!!

The color was very bright and fun but it just wasn't the right dress for me.
The colors were as shown, but the top of the dress was a bit stretched out and it gapped around my arms for that reason. A small may have worked better, but the fit around my hips was good in a medium.

Great for polo event
Great HL dress, fits true to size, extremely comfy. Paired it with my own Kendra Scott jewelry, Kate Spade clutch & Valentino Rockstud wedges. It does bunch a little at the zipper as others have mentioned, but I didn't let that slow me down at all.

This was for work holiday party and it was perfect!
I ordered a medium. Largest size offered. I was a bit worried but the quality of material made it ok. The chest area was a tad stretched out, but it was ok....I am not busty at all!! Loved color and fit of dress!!

Holiday party red dress that STANDS OUT!
Can I just say, I got endless compliments all night. I wore the xs as it was the only size available. I wish I had the xxs. It was a little big and the zipper bunched up on me. The xxs would have been perfect. It was a great and conservative length. Which was nice speaking that it was bold and fitted. I felt so incredibly confident. In a sea of red dresses, this dress stood out and had such vibrant reds! I wish I could have kept it.

Perfect dress to turn 30!
This dress is beautiful, sexy, and fun! Complements all your curves and it's perfect for a night out! I wore in Miami for my 30th birthday and felt great! Is a tight dress, but once you have it on it is super comfortable! You can dance, move around, sit, eat... color is bright and beautiful! Loved this dress for the occasion!

Perfect dress for a "spicy" party
This dress was perfect for a "spice" themed party, and really stood out from all the little black dresses. It seemed small when putting it on; but fit perfectly once zipped on. Great length - good for a party but not too short. Would definitely rent again!

Amazing, stand out dress!
I got this dress for a girls weekend in Vegas. At first I didn't like the dress and was considering returning it. I even when to the Vegas RTR store and tried on other options. I didn't find anything I liked, so went with the dress and I'm soooo glad I did. It was flattering, amazing and comfortable. In a sea of black dresses, I stood out and got a lot of compliments. Now I want to own it, that's how much I liked it!

It wore this dress to celebrate my birthday in style! I felt and looks like a red hot tamale.
It runs small! The material is thick, so even though the dress is very tight it is still very flattering.

Comfy and Sexy
Loved this dress because of how amazing the color was. The Medium was a little big for me but the small was unavailable on my rental weekend and the xsmall wouldn't really allow me to be comfortable. The banded nature of this dress helps it fit to anyone's curves which is great!

Perfect for a warm Fall Texas wedding that was held outdoors. Snug and comfortable!
Easy fit right out of the bag. Received timely and no wrinkling b/c of the fabric. I love this designer and the way the dresses fit every time. Lots of compliments on this dress at the event and will definitely rent Herve again!

Customer service and ease of ordering and returning keep me coming back.
The dress is short, but not too short. Herve Leger dresses for so snugly that you don't need spanx or a supportive bra. Perfect fit and style for my husband's motorcycle ball.

Made me feel amazing!
This dress is incredible! You didn't need to wear spandex or any sort of shape wear because the dress material does that for you. The cons of the dress are that the size without support is stretched out and sags a bit. I tried using double sided tape but it didn't work well. It also had a small tear in the ribbing on the left side. A great dress overall though!!

The fit really sucks you in! It's a wonderful dress, and makes you feel like a goddess. The color is bold and the shape is very fitted. I wore this in Vegas to a concert and a night out and highly recommend it!

I wore this dress for a fundraiser and I felt super sexy. My husband LOVED it.
This dress is, without a doubt, SUPER flattering and I received tons of compliments. A few things to bear in mind, while it's form fitting, the fabric is stretchy, but heavy. That makes it sort of "forgiving" but I do recommend a pair of spanx or something similar. You will go from feeling "hot" to "not" if you don't smooth out any bulges. I ended up going braless because, a) it made it easier to zip up the dress and b) wearing a strapless bra made it look like I was spilling out of the side that is strapless. I took the removable pads out of my bra and that was all I needed, but I am a B cup, this might not work for bigger cup sizes.

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

I got so many compliments on this dress and my husband absolutely loved it!
My slender and non-curvy frame somehow looked curvy and beautiful in this dress -- it accentuated my butt -- since my breasts are very small I just used the silicone cutles and a strapless push up to give more fullness. It was absolutely gorgeous, a showstopper and everyone complimented me on this dress. I would definitely rent it again!

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!
