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 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.

Great fit, great look. Received compliments all night long!
Could only find an xs and m rental for this dress, and ended up going with the medium. No possible way to fit into the extra small. However, the medium did fit perfectly and this dress was definitely my favorite that I have rented through RTR. Felt great on.

Herve Can Do No Wrong...
Though this dres ran small, it was snug in all the right ways! But do size up in your extra size just in case...Got many compliments on the dress. My boyfriend loved the dress and was a hit at the company Christmas party. One women even recognized it as a Herve!

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! :)

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.

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!

Being able to enjoy every moment of a friend's bachelorette party in this sexy dress!!
Love love love. Really sexy fit, does run small - I rented two Herve's for the weekend and this dress fit great in a large while the Coral me Bad dress fit perfectly in a medium. The dress is very flattering, I have a true hourglass shape and this dress made my waist look tiny without making my hips look huge in comparison. Wish I could find it for sale, I'd buy in a heart beat!!

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!

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 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.

Hot Hot and Hot
I wish I could buy this dress. If there was one dress worth splurging over $1000 for this would be it. I love it so much I am renting it again. It's super hot, yet the color and pattern is sophisticated enough that you don't run the risk of looking too flashy (or run the risk of looking like you're wearing a knock off). Wore this in Vegas for bachelorette, couldn't be happier. Definitely hot. Definitely turned heads. Love it. It is super dauntingly small looking when it arrives though, definitely don't go down a size, but don't be afraid of it either, you'll squeeze in somehow! Even though I've lost 10 lbs since I rented this dress I am still not going to order the XS when I rent it again b/c that just looked like it was for petite people who are skinny as sticks.

This was my fourth rental so far. I love how easy it is to rent, get the dress, and send it back. I always get asked where I got my dress from.
I usually wear a size small or 4, but I ordered this dress in a M since it was going to be made from a stretchy material. My boyfriend loved it on me and it was a great date. Thanks Rent the Runway!

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!

Amazing dress
I rented this for my birthday in vegas but unfortunately I had to leave before it arrived. As soon as I got home I tried it on and was so sad that I didnt get to show this off on the strip. This was my first Herve Leger dress and I loved it! the black around the middle made my waist look tiny, it fit very well on top even though I'm busty. The blue strips are a little bit brighter in person but that made me love it more. My mom even loved it, and thats saying something. I will definitely rent this dress again and I will wear it outside of the house.

I wore this dress to a RTR employee party in our new showroom! I love renting herve and this one seemed a little different and I also loved the color! I think that it is conservative enough to wear to many occasions, I am 5'8 and still felt that it was long enough to be appropriate for more than just a night out.
This new Herve is definitely snug because it is new, but I still felt comfortable in the xs which is what I normally wear in Herve. This style is definitely one of the longer styles, probably more appropriate for older women. Overall, loved the color in person and loved the dress!

The looks I got said it all!
I loved this dress.... as I love all Herves. It's a little more blue in person than what the picture shows but that's a good thing! It's pretty and fit great.

Loved This Dress!
This dress was really flattering! The thick black stripe really cinched my waist! I would probably size up in your back up size because it is a very form fitting dress; I would also recommend wearing SPANX! This dress hit me about 4-5 inches above my knee! Loved this dress, I will definitely be renting it again!

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.

Great dress
Very flattering dress! Two caveats: - Shows much more cleavage than the photo. Not for a conservative occasion. - Does run quite small-- I would recommend sizing up.
