Beautiful dress! Was extremely fitted (even without the spanx) - I'm full chested and butt-ed. It was a bit hard to breath lol - not sure how the curvy celebs do it! Maybe better for not so curvy girls.

I didn't wear it because it was my back up size XS.

I wore the same dress size S in the rose color. The red dress was just as beautiful, but a little more sexier due to the color. I'm glad I wore the rose colored dress or else the red one would have been too sexy for the wedding I attended.

Sexy, yet Classy!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
For starters it's a Herve Leger design, you really can't go wrong. However, I know that many of his designs can be a little too sexy. This dress was both sexy and classy. I loved the fit. It hugged all my curves and was very comfortable. I have a very small waist and bust, but I have hips and a behind, which makes it difficult to find the right fit when it comes to dresses. This dress was perfect. I got so many compliments and my bf loved it!!! My only issue with the dress was that the it had a small hole on the side due to the seam coming undone.I didn't think it was such a big deal at first, however I was a little embarassed when someone at the event pointed it out to me. But RTR has such amazing customer service... I contacted my stylist Neil, and he apologized and gave me a discount on my next rental. They really are the best!

Fell in LOVE with this dress!!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was sent last minute to replace my originally ordered "back-up" dress that was too large... I fell in LOVE with this dress! The color is beautiful, the fit is amazing.... everything I would expect from a Herve Leger!! The only thing that keeps me from giving this 5 stars is that when I received this replacement there was a 3-4" rip on the seam on the left side of this dress. I was COMPLETELY bummed because this was going to be my hot "date night" dress the night before the wedding the next day and now I couldn't wear it.... contacted customer service again and they went above and beyond to make-up for my order issues. Refunded my original purchase AND gave me a free rental for next time so I can experience RTR the way it is supposed to be! Will definitely rent again. Great customer service will ALWAYS gain loyalty from your customers! Thanks RTR!!

Felt like I should be in the new James Bond movie!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Wow. This dress was fantastic, felt comfortable, looked stunning in photos and was just overall perfect, Herve leger does not let you down! Being 5'10 and and 36 DD(not exactly the model size) I was worried about the fit and length due to my schools dress code but the dress fit just a couple of inches above the knee. The top part did fit a little low cut so I suggest not wearing a standard bra but trying to find one one of those stick on bras for an extra lift. Overall fit wise the dress was perfect, there was no riding up or anything uncomfortable except due to the fit body hugging I was constantly worried about pulling something but that's not really an issue because of how well made this dress is. Size wise I am size ten and I ordered a large which was perfect fit, so in my case it was pretty true to size. The color of the dress is slightly darker but it still has that bold red which makes it stand out in photos. Lastly in regards to wearing spans you don't need to considering the dress itself is like wearing spanx.

Wood have loved to wear this dress for the event I was chairing, it was just too small.

I was disappointed in the fit of this dress. I have worn a different style from the same designer and it fit like a glove. The color was s beautiful cranberry and if it would have fit, I would have worn it. My backup dress was from the same designer and it fit perfectly, in a smaller size, go figure.

The dress was pretty, but would not zip past my chest. So unfortunately was not able to wear. They also did not have my backup size available:( It definitely runs small, as I have worn many Herve dresses in the same size. I recommend going a size up if you are bigger busted.

It's true, it is like wearing full body spanx. This dress is ultra flattering, and so sexy. Probably too sexy for a wedding, but what the hell. Can still wear a regular bra underneath, but it's better to wear a demi.

I looked so Hollywood glam in this dress. I was definitely channeling my inner Kim Kardashian.

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
What I love about Herve dresses is that they TRULY fit you. As a petite woman, the XS really was extra small. I couldn't breathe initially, because it was so tight, but my body got used to it and my subtle curves were so apparent in this dress. I didn't want to do a lot of dancing, because I was afraid that I would rip the dress, but of course that didn't happen. The dress' material is heavy and thick so you could pretty much wear any underwear/panties. You also don't need to wear a slip or worry about lining.

Ok so I got my box which was extremely exciting and I open up my gorgeous red dress to try on which looked amazing and it had a large hole on the side!!!!! Luckily the event was still two days away so I phoned renttherunway and they immediately over nighted another dress to me. The customer service was exceptional!!!!! I was very happy and impressed by their immediate concern and action. The dress they shipped arrived promptly the next day and it fit great. The dress hugs your curves and is definitely a head turner. The red is a nice deep red. Great length. Has just the right amount of sexy but still sophisticated. Rent it!

Absolutely LOVED this dress & my experience with RTR!

This was my first time renting from RTR & my experience was absolutely amazing! My friend & I both rented Herve Leger dresses & both looked stunning on! We received so many compliments. I was a little nervous to order this dress because it was for a work party for my boyfriend & didn't know if it would be "too sexy" for his bosses, but it was perfect! I ordered an XXS and an XS, but ended up wearing the XS because it fit my chest better, it was a little tight, so no bra... Will definitely order from RTR again!! <3

This dress is even tighter than it looks in the picture

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The only way to describe this dress is skintight. Like, a second skin. I think I have a fairly good body, but this dress highlighted EVERY tiny little imperfection - some I didn't even realize i had. I've tried on a couple other Herve Leger dresses before and their bandage quality is a little more flattering and smoothing than this dress was. Gorgeous, well-made dress, but I couldn't wear it because it just didn't do much for my figure.

The look on my uncle's face and the non stop photos that were taken. I felt like a movie star!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is my second Herve Leger RTR rental. I had a few issues with the shipping address but with several emails, RTR was able to get it straightened out. RTR had the dress delivered to the hotel I was staying at. As always, I have not been let down. The first dress I rented was brand new - and this time around - (this red dress "If Looks Could Kill") was also in excellent condition. I went with a small size only because the medium was not available. I am small and very flat in the chest area so I did not have to wear a bra, instead I was able to use the silicon sticky tape things which was good enough to hold the girls in. This is a an extremely tight dress - and it it not forgiving when you have a bloated belly! Overall, I am considering renting this exact dress again for another event - I love everything about the dress and cannot think of anything negative to say about the product or the service. I was receiving compliments all night long and I felt like the star at my cousin's wedding!!

Perfect Birthday Dress!

Size worn: XXS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my 25th birthday, and it was the perfect mix of classy and sexy. This was my first rental and I wanted a Herve Leger because of how small they run, and sure enough it worked perfectly. I could have worn the XS, but I loved how the XXS completely sucks everything in. It's a heavy material which was great for winter, but even the short sleeve might feel to hot towards the end of spring. My favorite part about this dress was the cleavage it gave me! I wore 2 bras to really go all out, but I even had some with one bra, which was a first for me.

I was looking forward to my first Herve Rental. However I was a bit disappointed because I had ordered the XXS and XS as a backup size. I wsa looking forward to the Kim K body con fit. Unfortunately, the dress runs super small so I was all squashed up and for a wedding I felt a bit inappropriate. That didn't stop me from dancing all night and I got a number of compliments...hmmm. I will suggest going one size up for this especially because of the low neckline

Overall fit: True to Size

Rented this for a post Thanksgiving high school reunion. This is my second Herve rental so I knew an XXS would be best, even if it took some extra muscle to get the zipper up. Once in the dress though I felt amazing! Hope I have another reason to rent it. Wore with a blazer most the night which toned down the sexiness but still looked incredible. The length was exactly where I hoped it would be since I am short, and the fabric was wonderful and thick which was perfect for a winter event.

This dress highlights your curves. It hugs your body which gave me hips that I didn't know existed. Great dress and I recommend for petite girls since it gives you a figure.
