Great, classy dress!

I wore this (second time renting it) to an after work cocktail hour. I put a blazer over it. The fit is very flattering. I ordered the M and the L just in case. I'm right in between. This is one of my favorite dresses. Rent it!

perfect fit

I love the fit and color of this dress. The blue and black made this dress a nice twist on the little black dress. Also this dresses neckline gives great cleavage, which sometimes is an issue I have with Herve Leger dresses that can have a tendency to flatten instead of enhance cleavage. It was perfect for my weekend in south beach. Was sexy without being over the top.

SUPER Sexy!

I felt fantastic in this dress. It sucks you in in all the right places. The shoulders don't stretch like many other Herve styles. Just the right amount of clevage! And the length is perfect. Not too short, but not so conservative that I felt strange wearing it. And the color/fabric pattern was great. Added a little pizazze to your typical LBD. LOVED IT!

I always love Heve Leger and RTR made it easy for me to get one! I would not ask for anything more!

This dress is absolutely amazing! Simple but sexy! I love HL but sometimes I feel bad buying it so the idea of wearing it once and returning it made it easy for me to afford more HL to wear in the future! RTR is a great business model! It does not break your bank! Love it!

Great little party dress

The dress was great. Very comfortable. All Herve dresses take a little work getting into however, once zipper, they flatter your body and fit like a glove. The non striped section of the dress is in the perfect place, making your waist look tiny! I love this dress because it isn't as formal as some of the others, its a understated party dress that got me lots of compliments.

Fits great!

I rented both the small and medium and decided to wear the small. The small fit really tight at the beginning of the evening but it loosened up a bit after about an hour. I recommend wearing spanx underneath just to smooth out any bumps even though the dress is basically pretty spanx! In pictures if you don't stand quite right and you have larger hips it does accentuate them because of the stripes. Overall I don't think I'd rent this again because of the accentuation of my hips. One plus is that if aren't blessed in the chest area it gives you pretty good cleavage! :)

I felt like a million dollars on my 26th birthday in this great Herve!

This dress was a smash! We had the best time at my birthday eating, drinking and dancing. Everyone complimented the dress and it smoothed me out in all the right places. I would rent this dress again or purchase it if I could.

Dress was beautiful...

I really enjoyed wearing this Herve Leger Dress to New Years Eve. It has a slightly different look than most Herve Leger dresses available which I really loved and the blue color was great. I got tons of compliments and the dress was an appropriate length- not too long for NYE but not too short that I had to worry about the length all night.

I wore this for a night out in Vegas with friends....my first experience with Herve Leger.

First time I tried it on I thought it was a little bit snug. Actually it turns out to be quite comfortable while still being form fitting and incredibly sexy. The dress certainly cinches at the waste accentuating an hour glass figure. Don't worry, you'll be able to eat, sit, and dance.

Wow... yeah just wow

So this dress is the most perfect bachelorette party dress ever - it is definitely snug but I felt amazing in it. It hugged in all the right places ... yeah their is nothing bad to say about it. I loved it! It has a nice stretch to it so it pulls things in all the right places. I didn't near to wear a bra when I wore the small. There isn't a huge difference between the small and medium except the tightness around one's chest - so thats personal preference.

Big WOW factor - heads will turn when you are wearing this!

The fit of this dress was outstanding! It fit like a glove and conformed to all of my curves to highlight my shape. Like other Herve Leger's, it felt a bit tight to actually get the dress on and zippered up, but once it's on it moves with your body. I received a ton of compliments and told all of my friends about Rent the Runway!

There's nothing better than a bandaged dress for a night out on a bachelorette weekend. I loved the navy coloring in this dress. Comfortable too!

gorgeous dress!

this dress fits very snugly, but in the best possible way. like all herve bandage dresses, you won't need spanx, and you'll feel supported and comfortable for hours. i thought the length was perfect, though it did need a tug down upon standing up, and after walking a while -- it works its way up some. i normally have a more narrow, athletic shape, but this dress pulled my waist in, and made me look much more hourglass than i'm used to -- a wonderful perk!

Sexy and classy for Vegas!

It was a perfect dress for a Vegas trip! The dress is absolutely beautiful and it fit me like a glove. Don't be discouraged when you're wiggling your way into it when you first put it on - the dress' material molds to your body and becomes very easy to move in. I was dancing all night with no issues. Highly recommend!

Love Herve Leger

Another fabulous Herve Leger dress. Love the blue stripes. I could have worn the XS, but the small was more comfortable for a long night at an event I was hosting.

This dress cinched my waist so beautifully. It created the sexiest hourglass shape to my figure.

It is rather tight, so be prepared to look great and eat close to nothing!

Perfect dress for my 30th birthday party! Great for very petite ladies.

This dress was absolutely perfect for my petite frame. It is very difficult for me to rent dresses as I am only 4'10" and 90 lbs, but this one was very tight and the perfect length (hit right above my knees). I highly recommend this dress to any petite woman!

New dress - so it's tight

I'm normally a Medium in Herve Leger, but was advised to size up since it was a brand new dress and hadn't been stretched out. I could have worn either the medium or large (they fit very similarly), but was going to be dancing so I wanted the larger one. It fit well in my bust and hips, but was a bit too big in waist and stomach. Overall, it's very flattering and a really great dress.

Night Out

It took a lot of effort to get into the XS (could not get zipped without help), I would have done better with the S but it wasn't available. I have larger hips so that's really where the XS became too tight. The neck isn't quite as low as I thought! The blue color is really cute, need high heels because it is a bit longer. (Can be a bit more casual than other Herve dresses)

Looking good at my sorority's semi-formal!

I love this dress!! The strip hits right at my waist and everyone kept commenting about how great it looked :) I should have rented a S, but only the XS was available so it was a little tight around the legs and made it kind of difficult to walk. Worth it though!
