Great color! The small was a little looser than the xs - I rented both. I wish I would have worn the xs (I wore the small) now though. As the night went on the small "grew" and the cap sleeves kept slipping down. Loved the dress though!

Head turner! Loved the color and fit

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Wow, I loved this dress! I was originally going to rent another Herve (that cost a lot less) but RTR let me know it was damaged and they let me pick any other dress with no upcharge, which was great. I'm 5'3" 32DDD bust, size 6 top/size 8 bottom. It is very form fitting - I am not sure I could have worn any sort of Spanx or shapewear underneath, I would recommend a g-string underneath so that nothing shows. I didn't wear a bra either because the dress was tight enough to hold me in. I did use fashion tape to keep the shoulders from slipping and would definitely recommend doing that to keep it all in place. Definitely an attention-getter!

First off, the color of this dress is gorgeous.... It's a beautiful jewel tone blue... Surely you'll be the only one wearing this gorg color!! Once the dress is on, it fits like a glove. If you are at all body conscious, I recommend shape wear. On another note, I must say the customer service with rent the runway is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Every email was responded to within hours and every phone interaction was pleasant and any question or issue I had was resolved. Not only was this dress amazing, I'd rent again just because the customer service is THAT GOOD!! Thank you RTR!!!

I definitely felt sexy but at times self conscious. I'm not one to wear such a tight dress.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Fit was just as the other reviews stated. Snug as a bug. I wore a bra and kept looking down all night to pull up the dress or tuck in my bra. The dress is hot, not temperature, but smoking hot. My husband wasn't complaining. It was my first rental and will definitely rent again. The customer service is top notch.

This dress fit absolutely perfect. Would highly recommend! Cap sleeves slide a little bit, so fashion tape is the perfect fix. I would not recommend if you are self-conscious at all as it hugs tightly to every part of your body. A stunning dress and a beautiful color. I got compliments all night!

Beautiful ocean blue color

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The ocean blue color of the dress is gorgeous. Although the dress is a very form-fitting, bandage style, it was still appropriate for a wedding because of its length (almost to the knee), moderate coverage bust line, and cap sleeves. The dress is not particularly comfortable to wear at first, but does conform to your body after a couple of hours of wear.

As far as Herve goes...4 out of 5

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
I have been hesitant to rent this dress because despite loving Herve & knowing this is the ideal length for my height, I had serious questions about whether I'd like the style on me...I'm not a big fan of the shoulders. I will say that I liked it much MORE in person than in the pictures. It looked nice & while the shoulders bothered me a lot less in person, they were a nuisance as many other reviews note. The shoulders do NOT want to stay put. They slide down to the point that I had to walk like I was surprised because if I didn't the whole top would drop down to my bra line. I was only in this dress for 2 hours because I wore it out in Vegas & we called it an early night & went to bed right after dinner. Had I been in it any longer, I may have had to duct tape the shoulders onto my shoulders to keep them from falling. BUT as the pictures show, it is a flattering & sexy dress, classy & not trashy.

Summer Wedding

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was quite a pretty dress but a bit too sexy for the wedding I was attending, though I do appreciate the way it accentuated my derrière. The color was absolutely fabulous in person, especially if you have blue eyes. I will get the small next time as I had gapping in areas it shouldn't. I did not have on shape wear in this try on picture and feel it is a must unless you are extremely thin and toned, though there are a few of his styles that provide enough support.

This dress is incredibly tight. I normally wear a dress size 4 and I couldn't even zip up the S. The M was tight but not in an uncomfortable way. I got tons of compliments. It's easy to dress up or dress down for any occasion.

I rented this dress for my 20 year class reunion. It fit perfectly. I ordered the small and medium as a back up. I took a look at the small and didn't even bother to try it on. It looked tiny, so I ended up wearing the medium, which was perfect. The sleeves do tend to fall so I used fashion tape to keep them in place.

I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner and it was a hit. Looked beautiful. I wore a medium, however, the shoulders were too big... I had to use some clear sticky tape so that they stayed up on my shoulders, otherwise they would have kept falling down.

Gorgeous Dress!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
i loved this dress! tight in all the right places without being over the top. As mentioned in other reviews the sleeves did occasionally slide down but i fixed that with fashion tape and it wasn't a problem. I did wear a bra with the dress - again fashion tape helped hide the straps. The material is thick and slightly stretchy - make sure you have the right underwear...panty lines show very easily!!! All in all this was a great dress for a more formal wedding. Sexy without being too short or too revealing. Thank you RTR!

Beautiful Dress!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was perfect for the wedding I attended! I loved the vibrant blue color and the fabric was so nice! I received two sizes, a small and medium, and typically I wear a small in dresses so the medium was precautionary. Well, I'm so thankful I got the medium because the small was so tight on my hips/butt area that it was extremely difficult to zip up. Instead I wore the medium and that fit more comfortably. However, the shoulder sleeves were a little bigger and during the event they kept slipping off. Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the dress and my first RTR experience, especially because they provide the second size free!! I LOVED the dress, and aside from the minor shoulder thing I can't complain. It was beautiful!

The dress was the perfect fit and was everything I expected it to be.

Size worn: S

The fit was excellent and I had no problem with the straps being loose in the size small. Being that I am tall, I was worried about the length of the dress but it was perfect, with the hem reaching just above my knees. It hugged me in all the right places and I received many compliments on it throughout the night.

Beautiful color, fit like a glove

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented another Herve dress but apparently it was returned in poor condition by the previous renter. I was given a choice to choose any dress, so I went for another blue Herve dress. I'm 5'1"-5'2"ish and this dress went down to my knees (a little longer than I wanted but I guess good for a wedding). The color was gorgeous and vibrant and the dress fit like a glove. My only compliant is that the sleeves on this dress are a bit awkward. They don't stay in place if you move your arms, I had to constantly adjust them or pull them back up. Even as a skinny girl, I'd suggest wearing spanx or something similar just to smooth out any small lumps and bumps. I saw a pretty significant different when I wore shapewear under it. Make sure you wear seamless undergarments if you don't want to go commando, as this dress is very form fitting.

This dress color is absolutely gorgeous in person. The cut is so flattering and I loved that the neckline shows "just enough" without going overboard. I had no issue with the sleeves falling down as others mentioned. The hemline is a good length and didn't feel like a mini as some Herve's can. Absolutely my favorite rental yet!

There was a small error with my order so I was able to pick a dress that RTR overnighted to me for my event. They ended up sending me this one and another so I wore one to the ceremony and one to the reception. RTR went above and beyond in my opinion. I loved this dress. It was sexy! I had no problems with the straps like others mentioned. Very happy with my first rental.

The dress was absolutely amazing in every way! The craftsmanship, the quality and dear lord the color! I ordered the small and medium based on other reviews. The small was much too tight for my liking. The medium fit my body perfectly however the top and shoulders seemed a bit stretched out, nothing a bra and some fashion tape couldn't fix. I wore this dress to a Gala event and felt classy and sexy. I paired it with gold filagree earrings, red lipstick and of course Louboutins! #classy #sexy #over40 #gala

Great, great dress. A lovely, regal shade of blue and sexy, snug fit. Wore with a strapless bra and the dress helped to give a nice extra lift. Length was appropriate for a wedding, and I had no issues with the straps moving at all - stayed put without fashion tape or any additional support. Danced all night long comfortably and felt fabulous.

This dress was SOOOOOOOOOO incredible!!! First let me say, thank you to RTR for their amazing customer service. I originally rented another Herve, but it became unavailable due to certain circumstances. The woman I spoke with worked with me fabulously and got me this dress SUPER fast with ease and I am SO HAPPY she did. The color online doesn't even do it justice. The cobalt blue shade is simply stunning in person and really stood out in the crowd. The fit is super sexy!!!!! It hugged my body in all the right places and made me feel like a million bucks. I was getting compliments on the dress all night long. I normally wear a size 6 dress and the M was perfection. Hands down, my FAVORITE rental thus far. I didn't want to send it back!!! Rent this dress. You will NOT be disappointed, ladies. :)

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress definitely shows off your curves so be prepared for that. I wore it with a strapless since my chest is on the larger side and it fit great. So many people complimented me however I don't think I would have been comfortable wearing this to a wedding had it not been in Las Vegas, maybe just a little too racy. My husband absolutely love it though.

The dress was super flattering. It was tight but thick so I think it holds in any "imperfections". I think my boobs were too small though, the front of the dress kept slipping down all night (not in danger of showing anything, but I was wearing a stick-on bra and that kept peeking out as the dress slipped). Other than that, it was great.

The dress is beautiful. I'm a larger shade of girl and it smoothed me out beautifully I would still however recommend some spanx to look perfect. The sleeves kept falling down, I didn't usually notice since they don't bother but other people did notice. Beautiful in person, beautiful in pictures. I felt like the most beautiful in the room in a room full of beautiful people. Overall, get the dress. Oh and customer service for RTR is MORE then amazing. Thanks for your help!

As all of the other reviews said the sleeves are a bit uncomfortable if you do not have wide shoulders they will slip down a little. I had to adjust the dress throughout the evening, however I did not mind because the rest of the rest made up for it. The color is stunning and the fit was like a glove. I wore bronze t-strap heels and had my nails painted a cherry red which all pulled together nicely. I am 5'9 (with long legs) and the dress sat just above my knee. It is a different shade of cobalt in the different light you go into.

Wish I could wear this dress every day.

Size worn: M
Rented for: Wedding
My favorite dress I've ever worn. And that's saying a lot because I've worn hundreds. Honestly I was worried about the size because you never know with something that runs S, M, or L but I read reviews of women who seemed to have similar body types to mine and the Medium was the perfect fit for me. I'm thin but I have an athletic body with a broad back, which helped me bc the straps were kindof hard to stay up. If you're smaller up top I would recommend using fashion tape to keep the shoulders in place. The color was absolutely stunning in person and pictures don't do it justice. I was getting asked all night where I got my dress and if people could borrow it from me. I'm very sad to have to return it! My experience with RTR keeps getting better. Going to be hard to top this one!
