I could not wear it. I'm curvy, and it was very unflattering.
Very beautiful dress, definitely for the thinner girls out there. It was very nice quality, though.

For curvy body types, this dress is perfect. Pair with colorful pointed heels for the best effect.
I'm usually a 2 or a 4 in dresses, sometimes a 6, and the small fit me perfectly. I got plenty of compliments, it's a very bold dress to wear, but when worn right, can be very beneficial.

this dress was beautiful! made me feel gorgeous, it is very flattering
Fit great except for the length. it was a little tight, but comfortable once you get it on. it is a little heavy and was quite hot for a spring/summer event. I am 5'1 and with 4 inch heels, the dress was still about 2 inches too long

Absolutely stunning dress
I wore this dress for my sorority formal at the Superdome in New Orleans, and it was absolutely perfect! I have VERY full hips and a big ole booty (thanks soccer) and this dress accentuated my curves very nicely. I was initially very worried about sizing after reading reviews but luckily was able to go into the Herve Leger store here in Atlanta to figure out my size! 10/10 would recommend this dress

Stand out
This dress was great for "black tie optional" wedding. It was very long so big girl high heels are a must! The black fabric had horizontal ribbing every 3in or so which wasn't a problem but just something I didn't notice in pictures online. I loved that it was wrinkle free because I could literally shove it into my suitcase without a care. The one con is that the dress was SO heavy!! I received tons of compliments all night and was ultimately happy with this dress.

Felt like a movie star! Everyone loved this dress and had all eyes on me, it complimented my hourglass athletic shape so well I'm a 34Dd and the m fit great could of gone with a small if it wasn't for the rib cage are being a little snug but overall the construction and design of the dress was outstanding and photographed amazing and was very comfortable thank you RTR !!

Clearly not a bargain rack dress!
This dress is high quality fabric. Wrinkle free. Fits tight, so did show off my non-flat stomach but this aside the dress itself stands out. The lines make it stunning. Great fit for small chested women as well. Flattering.

Fast, Easy Delivery!
The fit was amazing! The dress for the most part runs true to size. it's also very comfortable. Ordered an XS and S, but went with the Small. The length was perfect...not too long and not too short. Compliments your figure very well. Highly recommend for a black tie affair!

Gorgeous, comfy, totally worth it!
I ordered the small and the medium. Although the small was the perfect height for me and fit over the hips well, it just wouldn't close comfortably around my ribcage (perhaps I could have pushed it...but not at all sure, and it wouldn't have been as comfy as the medium). The medium was perfect except for the length--it was a little long for me (but I wear really short heels, so most normal folks who aren't old ladies about their feet like I am will be fine). I could wear a normal bra but had to pin the straps (see back shot of dress). The material was nice and thick and forgiving (no Spanx needed). Super comfy, great to dance in, and incredibly flattering. Lots of compliments all night--and got lots of great pictures (and I *never* like myself in pictures). This was my first RtR experience--and am now a convert. Thanks!

Didn't wear it after all, but would have if could
The person who rented before me didn't return my size in time, so they sent me another larger size in this dress and also a second choice dress instead. Ended up wearing the second choice because it fit better but loved this dress - would have worn it if they were able to send me my original first size (small instead of medium). Overall, amazing dress though - beautiful,unique and simple but elegant.

Pretty dress, lots of compliments
This dress was stunning I recorded lots of compliments. It was a bit hard to zip at the top I needed help getting it zipped. It was a bit snug on the rib/chest area but besides that the fit was great. The length was perfect with a short wedge.

Beautiful dress
I absolutely loved this dress!! It fit perfectly, and the material was very thick and forgiving. I ordered a medium, and I'm 5'5 and a 34C. The dress was a little long even with 3 inch heels, which is really the only negative that I could see. Other than that, it was a perfect dress for a perfect night!

The dress fit beautifully. My only complaint would be that it was a little long. I'm 5'3" and wore 4 inch heels and it was still a bit too long.

Drop Dead Gorgeous Dress: Everyone Stopped To Tell Me
Obsessed!! I was amazed how comfortable it was. Fit like a glove, the way an amazing Herve Leger dress does. Didn't feel too tight, was able to eat and drink, yet it has a nice spandex effect to create a sexy silhouette. I wore a regular bra, because well, boobs - and didn't have a problem. I would rent this again in a heartbeat... just need a new crowd of friends who haven't seen me in it.

The fact that everyone stopped me to tell me how amazing this dress made my figure look
The fit was more than I asked for, perfectly dropped to the floor without drag. The slit in the back wasn't too high. The bust wasn't too much for others too see. The only con is how tight the dress was around my ribs under my breast. Overall I was extremely happy just wish I knew I was going to have to stay poise and proper all throughout the night.

I went to a formal wedding in Long Island for my husband's cousin.
I should have worn a size S, but I waited until the lats minute and had VERY limited choices left. This was not my first choice dress, and it was only left in Medium or Large. Due to the type of fabric, I don't think it was noticeable that the dress was so large, and I got a lot of compliments. I was very unsure of the dress when I got it, and ended up being very happy with it.

Beautiful! But not quite what I was going for.
This dress is amazing and wonderful, but we had a Black Tie that was a bit more "glitzy", and this was just a bit too plain - but still GORGEOUS! I will wear with another time when I want a sexy look but not a "gown" look

Comfortable and felt great!
I didn't love it at first but once the outfit came together I loved it. The only thing I didn't like is the bottom. The material is amazing throughout the body - keeps everything in and is very comfortable - but at the bottom is just ends, there's no flow. Make sure you like your shoes because you will see them. Overall, I recommend it!

Chic but nothing special
I was really looking forward to this dress, but was disappointed. The dress is heavy because of the fabric. The bottom comes to an abrupt halt (versus something that flows more naturally) and I wasn't exactly a fan of that. I think it has the potential to look great on other people, just not for me! Runs a bit on the larger size. I would size down for back up because of the stretchy material.

This dress is a total show stopper!
I rented this dress for a black tie wedding and everything about it was perfect. It runs true to size for Herve but Herve runs pretty small generally so I'd recommend sizing up for your second size. I received maybe a dozen compliments from other guests throughout the night and felt absolutely beautiful! This dress is classy and understated while still being sexy and very chic. I would absolutely rent again!

The horizontal white line beneath the bust and the straps were a bit snug. I wore flats with it because it would be too short with heels. I got so many compliments and overall this dress was amazing!

danced the night away in this dress!
i absolutley adored this dress. i only got an xs because that was the only size that was available when i needed it (i waited till the last minute) but i'm glad i did because the xs fit well. the material is super stretchy and forgiving, and the color and lines are flattering beyond belief. my only complaint was that the white line below the bust was kind of constricting so bustier girls beware. i love this dress so much and i wish i didn't have to send it back! makes you look like a knockout!

So form fitting & flattering!
I wore this dress to prom and got a lot of compliments! Everyone said the dress looked amazing on me so I'm pretty happy about that. With 3 inch heels, the length was perfect and because of the stretchy body con material, it was easy to dance with. There was no need to wear a bra since it was so tight and form fitting. The lines are so very flattering and overall the dress was very comfortable!

very classy yet sexy
Fit like a glove. Held me in just like spanx and was super comfy all night. The white seam stripes give some pizzazz to a otherwise black/.boring look. At first I thought it looked too casual but then in a sea of black formal dresses that were at the party, I really stood out. Many compliments all night, including "best dress here." I also think this dress looks better on you than on the model they show here.

I got so many compliments at prom when I wore this dress, everyone loved how unique it was!
The fit was true to size, although the fit right below the bust where the middle white line is was a little tight, but honestly wasn't an issue. It definitely does run a little short, but that may just be because of my tall height. I didn't mind though since I liked my shoes.
