Dancing the night away with some old and new friends, and this text message I received from an ex boyfriend the next day: "I saw those pics you posted on my news feed this morning and you looked really really hot. Made me regret not flying out there." Thanks RTR!
This dress was everything I hoped it would be for my 22nd birthday celebration. The small was the perfect fit for me - I'm 5'4", 32DD, and normally wear a size 2 or 4. I didn't need to wear a bra with this dress due to its snug fit, and felt totally secure the whole night. Can't wait to order from RTR again soon!

So Much Love
i was a bit cautious about renting a dress for the first time, but i absolutely adored it. I rented it for my school's homecoming and received endless compliments. Everyone was asking me where I got it. The "bandages" put everything exactly where it needs to be and I bet it would look stunning on anyone. It was so sad when it had to go back! But I'm never buying a dress for formal occasions ever again. A great experience.

AH-MAZING
LOVED. My University homecoming is a formal affair and trying to find a unique purple dress is a challenge every year. I've never gotten as many compliments as I did this year. The fit was PERFECT. I'm 5'8" 165lbs and the dress could not have fit better. I have very long legs too, and the length was appropriate too. I DEFINITELY suggest grey shoes, it was the only color that looked good with the navy and purple. I will be ordering Herve again, you should too!

Looking amazing in a fantastic Herve dress, with wonderful friends, made it a birthday to remember!
I rented this dress for my birthday in Vegas, and let me say, it was fabulous! I wear a size 2/4 in dresses with a size 34A bust and athletic build, I ordered the small and it fit like a glove. I honestly can't say anything bad about the dress. I danced my face off the whole night and was comfortable. Two thumbs up for sure!

Fabulous fit, sexy dress
Great renting experience. dress fits like a glove. and you CAN wear a bra! (need to be careful though) I always wear a xs in herve and it fit well. some seams by the straps are a bit loose. but looks ok for now. also I had a back size, S, but with bigger sizes, the bottom part is not tight and sort of gets "wrinkly" which is not fun.

Literally everyone told me that I looked amazing - what a confidence booster!
Loveloveloveee. I rented this dress for a Gala event that I was hosting for the GLBTQ student group on campus (I'm the president). I can't even tell you how many compliments I received! I loved the way the dress hugged all my curves, it was so flattering. It did ride up a little bit - perhaps that because I could have worn a medium but I didn't order a 2nd size because I had ordered 2 sizes for another Herve dress (which I didn't even end up wearing!)

Assisting backstage at SHEI Magazine's fashion show and receiving compliments along with the models!
I was worried this dress might look skanky because of my full bust and butt, but it accentuated my body in all the right ways. It was A TINY bit baggy around the waist since I'm usually a size 4 but the Small was way too short for me. The length was perfect and it gave me a really nice hourglass shape.

Amazing dress.
I'm a Runway Rep for RTR so I love to rent dresses for every occasion. I wore this dress to a date party and felt like a supermodel. I'm 5'10" and usually wear a size 0 or 2, but I never have confidence. Putting this dress on was like getting an instant boost. I was able to get into the XS with a little help from a friend (I couldn't zip up the middle of my back because it was hard to reach) just fine. I would recommend this dress for anyone. Not too short, but short enough to be fun for a night out.

RTR for my whole Vegas weekend! got compliments from strangers for these amazing dresses I barely paid for ;)
I've had my eye on this dress for so long and I finally had an excuse to wear it during a girls weekend in Vegas! It fit so well and I was absolutely in love with it! It was a little long for me but I'm always altering lengths because I'm so short so it wasn't a big deal. I just used fashion tape to fold it over and shorten the length a little. I'm so happy I finally got to wear an herve for at least one night... it was fun while it lasted :)

Great for my 21st Bday!!!
I loved this dress & the way it fits. It's really tight so I suggest you wear spanx or some type of shapewear underneath. The dress actually stays put so it's great for dancing, which I did all night long. All my friends loved this dress as well. I was overall pleased with the dress and everything about it.

I don't think there is much to say about this dress. I wore it for a party and got tons of compliments. Was really happy that it fit my 34D chest and looked really great (no squished or flattened). Hope this helps!

I got many compliments on the dress
Loved loved loved this dress. The lines are very flattering. Because I'm petite I usually only wear super short dresses, but even the longer length on this dress made my legs look awesome. I would rent this again I liked it so much! Because it is so tight and thick it was a little uncomfortable to wear, but well worth it, trust me :)

The dress was fantastic, very true to size. I am 5'7 I weigh 130 and an XS fit me perfectly! My bust is a 32, if you are bigger at the top you may need a small. Overall I love the dress and will be renting again!

I thought this dress was great, got many compliments on it all night. It fits pretty true to size, though if you are tall it could run short (I'm 5'9" but I thought it was fine for my height).

Really Unique
I wore this for a party. It is true to size but pretty tight on the chest. I liked it because it's unique and has an eye catching design. I have a small chest and the cut of this dress REALLY smushed my chest down so I looked pretty flat. Still, it was really cute and the direction of the stripes made it flattering.

Gorgeous Dress
As usual, Herve never disappoints. This dress was super gorgeous and make my figure look great. The straps on top were very cute. Not as much cleavage as I am used to for an Herve, but still pretty good. Very flattering and different and more interesting than your typical dress. I definitely stood out.

Perfect Birthday Dress
I wore this dress for my 24th birthday in Atlanta and it was perfect! It fit perfectly which is surprising because I am a 34D. I have herve dresses ranging from XS-M depending on the style and bandages but the S was an exact fit. I would recommend this dress to anyone! Comfortable and perfect for a night out.

I got so many compliments while wearing this dress. Strangers stopped me to comment on how beautiful the dress looked. I felt fantastic wearing it. I was always fearful of trying Herve Leger pieces because I was skeptical that they would work with my body type, but I am addicted now! Hugs you in all the right places!

I wore this dress for a birthday dinner/cocktail party my friend was hosting at a banquet hall. The dress had a very comfortable fit- definitely fitted in the bandage-style, but not tight or restricting. It was very comfortable and easy to dance in.

I adore this dress
I have rented this dress I believe at least three times. It is by far, the best fitting Herve on the sight for my body type. I love the way it holds you in, the dark colors are very flattering. It can go with my types of shoes. It's understatedly sexy. The tops shape and cut really hold your breasts in place and you never feel uncomfortable in this dress. It is truly a knockout. Highly recommend it!

I got so many compliments for owning such a nice dress and it really did make a big difference! Thx!
The fit was AMAZING, normally this brand runs SO small when you first buy it because it is brand new but because it was previously worn it actually fit like a glove. The dress was perfectly clean, it came beautifully wrapped and was very elegant. Conservative on the top, yet short and sexy at the bottom without being too short. I wore this for my boyfriend's sister's wedding and it was a huge hit. I will definitely be renting more from this designer.

Best Dress I have EVER worn!
IT WAS AMAZING! I wore this for a fraternity formal, and got so many compliments! I get nervous about snug dresses like this in case they hug the wrong places, but you really can't go wrong with Herve Leger. I normally wear a size 6, but I balance between a small and a medium, so I ordered both. I ended up wearing the small, even though both would have worked. Definitely recommend!!!

Don't Be Afraid of this Dress!
The straps on this dress make it look a little intimidating; however, they are actually very flattering. The dress is a different type of material than most Herve dresses. It isn't ask slick and shinny as most, more of a matte fabric, but I still loved it. I wore it for new years last year and received a ton of compliments.

This dress made me look incredible...
The fit was tight but that was expected with the XS. It gave me the amount of shaping that I wanted and needed, because I have pretty wide hips. I'm also a 32E and this dress held me in all night - probably the best part about selecting this dress for a party. It was extremely comfortable and my date could not stop staring at me all night. Hands down, best rental!

truly a WOW dress!
I originally rented a different dress for NYE but it suddenly became unavailable and RTR let me pick any available dress on the site! Since it was NYE, it was slim pickin's BUT! i did manage to score this beauty. I'm super short and like my dresses short and this one totally fit the bill. Mid thigh-ish range. I was worried the straps might be big but they're not! Every part of this dress conforms to you. It's like Herve fits to every woman...not just the tall and skinny ones! yay! Would definitely rent again and highly recommend! I wore it with black tights and black booties (really cold) but if I had my purple suede pumps that are in my apt, I would have totally worn them! Boyfriend couldn't stop staring...
