The dress is stunning. I found the top to be a tad larger than size implies. If you are ample chested, this works.

This dress is TDF. You can really tell this dress is well made and expensive just by looking at the material. I ordered a M since I am 34D-27-39. Too bad it was too big on me so I was not able to wear it. It was loose even with a push-up bra and Hollywood Tape. Definitely recommend this dress to girls with big boobs.

I got this dress in an xs (which is what all my herve leger dresses are) and it was def too big. Perhaps an xxs would have helped but the hip area is just not fitted and believe me I am a curvy girl but I did not fill this area out it was baggy which is so strange for a herve leger dress. The length on me clearly wasn't a problem (since I am 5'2) Perhaps if you are hippy this would work well for you. The color is nice and is similar to what you see in the picture. I wouldn't rent this again simply bc it was not flattering on me.

NOT true to size...
I a m typically a XS/O, but this dress was made for a very small chest and large hips. The top was to tight and the waist down was baggy.

It runs big, so definitely order a size down or opt to get two different sizes, but very flattering

Beautiful, unique dress!
I rented this dress to wear in Vegas, and while it's a goregous, unique dress, it definitely wasn't the most comfortable dress to wear. Like other reviewers stated, it feels like it smashes your chest down, and there is not much stretch to the dress. The fabric is extremely thick and heavy, so I kind of felt like I had to pull it up every now and then. It is short, but it doesn't feel too revealing because it's not tight around your butt/hips/thighs. I was surprised the XS fit me because I am a pear/hourglass, so I carry most of my weight in my bottom half. I think this dress would actually have an ideal fit on a true pear shape (larger hips/thighs/butt with a small chest). Also, I think the dress is better for night time because in daylight, you don't see the shimmer from the fabric. The color looks slightly darker than on the model. All in all, it's a standout dress...just not the most comfortable!

This dress made me feel like a celebrity!
I absolutely loved this dress! I wore it for my bachelorette party and it was perfect. The material is very thick and spanx are not necessary. The the hip area was a little big but it was more comfortable. I would say the color is a little darker than the picture shows but it's a gorgeous standout dress. I received many compliments and would rent this again in a heartbeat.

Great Dress
I only say that this runs large compared to other Herve Leger dresses. It looks great in pictures and was totally appropriate for my formal wedding event. It hit me right above the knee and was not skin tight like I expected.

My husband told me I looked so incredibly sexy, and he was excited to show me off around town. Perfect dress for a birthday weekend in Vegas!
Like many girls, I've wanted to wear an Herve Leger and thought my upcoming birthday weekend in Vegas would be the perfect debut. I, however, did not feel entirely comfortable wearing the classic bandage dress without toning up my mid-section. Because of that, I loved how this dress didn't exactly hug your every curve and was surprised at how comfortable it was. I felt pretty fabulous in it. A few notes to the fellow busty ladies out there: I typically wear an XS but because of my bust size, was worried it wouldn't fit (and of course the S was unavailable). I laid my faith in RTR reviews, and the dress did zip over my lovely lady lumps. Now because it didn't quite fit right at the bust, the material constantly bunched at the ribcage. It wasn't terrible, but just slightly high-maintenance since I had to tug at the dress to pull it down after walking for awhile or sitting. Overall, this was sexy, little dress and a great entry into the world of Herve Leger. Now to work on those crunches so I can wear more HL...

Thank you for the tips for us busty ladies! Getting a dress to fit "the girls" is always my main concern. And you look fabulous by the way!

Wrong Size, Great Dress
I rented the dress for a back-to-school party. I usually wear a small but RTR didn't have my size for the weekend so I opted for a medium hoping that I could fill it out. Well, I was wrong. I feel like even if I rented a small, it would be large as well. The chest area was larger than usual. It just kind of drooped away from my chest. But if I had gotten the right size, the dress would have been amazing. The fabric is very thick and amazing material.

I felt really glamorous and got complimented throughout the night.
I loved this dress, and fantasized about wearing it for months before my event. The material is wonderful-it's very heavy! I assumed since it was a bandage dress it would run small, so I ordered the medium. When I got the dress, I knew before I even put it on that it was going to be huge on me. I was so upset, I had to go to my fairy godmother seamstress and have her do a temporary alteration so it wouldn't fall off me, and I ran to Nordstrom to buy a bra with a ton of padding to make it look less large on top. Be careful which size you buy! I am 5'7" wear size 27 jeans and usually wear a size 2 or 4 in dresses, and this dress was WAY too big on me.

Beautiful dress!!!
I wore this dress out while on vacation in Miami and let me tell you my boyfriend couldn't keep his eyes off of me! I loved the way I looked in it, although XS was a little roomy for me. Usually I wear either Small or XS but the way this dress is made ( little wide on the bottom) I guess XXS would of been better for me. Regardless I felt beautiful and stunning and got a lot of complements not only from my boyfriend but from total strangers as well.

Hello, bombshell!
The second you put this dress on, you feel like a Bond girl! It skims your curves in all the right ways, and the gold shimmer color is beautiful. It did feel a little loose in the hips, but it wasn't anything noticeable. The dress is super comfortable and easy to wear.

Was so down about this dress. Stunning on the hanger but the cut is weird.
This dress is so pretty on the hanger, the shimmer is awesome but the cut is terrible. I am small on top but it was very tight through my rib cage and huge at my hips (almost like a full skirt), which is odd given that dresses usually fit me the opposite way (huge on top tight on bottom).

Great dress, little big
My worry about this designer is that when the dress has been worn a lot it can get a little stretched out, so I ordered both the S and the M (months in advance because I have been dying to wear this dress). I got call a few days before the event and they informed me that the S was no longer available because who ever wore it before me ruined it beyond repair (blast!). So I only got the M and was able to order another dress (they take good care of you at least!). I figured the M will just be fine. The fit was good everywhere except the top. I have some pretty big boobs (34DD/36D) and I had a hard time holding the top up. I think it may be time to retire this dress RTR! Also the color is not as gold as I expected it to be. It was almost a milk chocolate with gold threading....

I also forgot to add that the dress is super short so get a nice tan!

Wanted a fun bachelorette party dress and this was perfect!
I loved this dress. I wore an XS for dinner and pictures because it looked way better and didn't fall down on me like the small did. However, the zipper on the XS was so challenging it took several bridesmaids to zip it up and down for me. I changed in to the small to go out because i didnt want the girls with me to struggle getting my dress off at 3am. Besides those misfortunes, the dress helped make my night the best send off into married life:)

Unfortuantely... not what I expected
I was obssed with this dress from the picture , I had reserved it almost 2 months in advanced.... however, when I tried it on- I realized it was too short for the wedding I was going to. The color of the dress is actually more of a taupe (did not look gold ) but it did fit my hips very well (this is a great dress if you have an hourglass figure). You can defintiely wear it for a Girls Night out, bachelorette party...just not a formal wedding (atleast thats my opinion). The dress also runs large- I thought I would fit in the medium but the small was best

The dress was beautiful, if only the top part fit!
The dress really looked pretty but when I tried it on the top didn't fit well at all. The top part wouldn't stay up. I am a 34 C so I didn't think there would be a problem with the fit. It was pretty disappointing. The rest of the dress was a little large but would have been okay if the top fit. I ended up going with a back up dress.

Thanks RTR! Had so many compliments on this dress!
I absolutely love this dress!! They didn't have a small left so had to go with the xs. They said it ran big so thought it would be a little looser but it was actually a little small but it still fit great and looked amazing on! Material is thick and heavy and you can tell it is an expensive dress!! It worked out great!!!

Not what I expected....
This dress looked great on the hanger, but had a lot of trouble when it came to dancing - lots of pulling it up for fear of flashing everyone. The dress wasn't as long as I thought it would be - I think my Spanx kept peeking out. Overall, not something I'd get again.

Dull gold stunning dress.
This was a stunning dress, unfortunately could not wear it because it was a bit too tight on the bust. It flattens you out, and is not very comfortabel. The bottom part is a lot more comfortable, but the material iis a bit stiff. It buckles up in the back.

Lack of Customer Service when trying to get credit for dresses that did not fit.
This dress hit me funny in both the M and L sizes. I am 5 foot 5 inches tall and weigh about 155lbs. I have an hourglass shape, this dress was not flattering for my shape. Flattened my chest and bloused funny at the skirt. Too bad this did not fit at all, I was very much looking forward to wearing this dress.

I was complimented by a swimsuit model in this dress!
This dress runs VERY small! I managed to squeeze myself in the dress, but it took some effort! However, once it was on, it looked AMAZING and I felt like a model! My husband and I were going to the launch of the SI Swimsuit Issue party and one of the models complimented my look! If that doesn't say this dress was hot, I don't know what else does?!

Very sophisticated look. Got tons of compliments.
Not my first choice, but the dress ended up working out well. Last minute availabilities made accesssories previously purchased and ready inappropriate. Last minute scramble worked out. Very tight on top, fit great below the waist. Fabric is very rich looking and heavy. Would rent this dress again. Overall experence with RTR requires flexibility but the customer service was great through the whole process.

The perfect choice for curvier women! It is definitely a mini so careful if you are taller than 5'6"!
