This dress is a total show stopper!

Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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 fact that everyone stopped me to tell me how amazing this dress made my figure look

Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Size worn: MR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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

But - I wore my backup dress. This one fit perfectly but was just too fitted for the wedding I was attending. Would definitely rent it again for a wedding with a different crowd.

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

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

I wore this dress for prom. It was extremely flattering and I felt beautiful!

Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

Size worn: XSR
Rented for: Formal Affair
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!

very classy yet sexy

Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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".

Beautiful, comfortable, and I never wanted to take it off!

Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Beautiful dress. Heavy, so be careful when hanging it up on the hanger, as it will stretch out the straps, but that's normal for a Herve Leger. Cleverly placed lines to create curves. I didn't even have to wear a bra with this dress and it was very comfortable! There wasn't any extra room to add height with very high heels, due to the straight hem, but no complaints!

I got so many compliments at prom when I wore this dress, everyone loved how unique it was!

Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Stand out dress

Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress was gorgeous in every way. The fit was perfectly flattering and the lines were flawless. It was simple but still sexy. I can't count the number of compliments I received. Perfect for a black tie event, party, or anything dressy. It is a total statement dress! Beware it is TIGHT, but that didn't bother me.

I would say it's extremely true to size if not a little small. I felt flawless despite a dud of a date!

Size worn: SR

Very beautiful dress, was a little heavy but that's because it's knit. Overall, I was very happy with it and recommend for any formal affair!

I wore this dress for prom and got so many compliments. It's beautiful and unique. I loved it.

Size worn: MR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
It shows some bumps but I was ok with Spanx. It's really heavy, though, and thick. I'm about 5'4" and the length was just right with about 3 inch heels. I could walk comfortably thanks to the slit on the back. With the Spanx, the medium was just loose enough to be comfortable, but I couldn't fit in the small (I'm about 128lbs).
