Perfect fit, hugged my curves in all the right ways!
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
When I received the dress, it was a little stretched out, but when I put it on you couldn't tell at all. The color is very unique and stands out in a crowd and the fit hugged my curves and sucked in the belly. I'd never worn an Herve Leger before, and what I really liked was that the bottom of the dress never rode up. I wore this dress to my sorority's semi formal and it was absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this dress!

This dress is so flattering and the color is great. I wore it for a night out with girlfriends and I never wanted to take it off! It's form fitting and tight, but the material is stretchy so no need to really wear spanx with this dress.

Great dress...with a little fussing.
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The color of this dress is stunning, it is a bright mid-toned purple, I wouldn't really call it a lilac. However, the fit is weird. Despite other reviewers comments, I would urge you to size down. Herve dresses are not flattering if too big, and mine definitely had some spots where I would've liked it to hug closer and "suck me in". It's possible that the size I ordered was stretched out, but I wish I had purchased a size xs. The cut of the neckline is also very odd, it's higher than I think is flattering and smooshes you down. I pulled the top down and hoisted my chest up for a more flattering fit. I also didn't find it to be too short at all. I am 5'6" and wore heels

Vibrant color, very sexy in front
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
Great looking dress, I can usually wear a small in Herve but this was really small! I got away with it but it was tight, the front hemline makes the dress shorter so being 6 foot tall it was almost to short to be comfortable. Beautiful color!

NYE dress...fabulous, felt like a million dollars!
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size

Fit very tight around bust, fit perfect everywhere else, I did manage to put a bra on underneath for some lift as the dress squashed my bust a little. The dress has a heavy, quality feel and shows off all the curves in the right places, color is fabulous, would rent again!

I turned 30 in a purple Herve! Enough said!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ordered a S (wishful thinking) and a M. Both dresses were ok, but I didn't like the fact that you could see my inny belly-button in the small. :) I wore this at my 30th birthday party and it was perfect! Purple is my favorite color and while I thought I ordered a different dress, this one turned out to be perfect! The hem detailing on the bottom of the dress made it unique as well as the neck and shoulder lines. While I was mindful while talking pictures to make sure I "sucked" it in at the flash, I was not worried about my dress at all. I was comfortable and best of all I felt beautiful.

perfect amount of slutty
Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
sounds kind of harsh, but it was just revealing enough for a perfect 18th birthday party dress! The material is really thick, i picked up the box and it was really heavy, which is a good thing i guess! i was worried about it being too long since i have short legs, but when i put it on i kind of had a problem with keeping it long enough. i kept feeling like i would flash someone, just because the way the upside down V is cut out! but loved the dress and will definitely rent more Herve Leger!<3 oh and the most amazing part-- Im pushing a DD and i didnt have to wear a bra :O and my boobs looked so good!!! :D

I have a very athletic build...however this dress made me feel feminine and sexy! Great dress for my bachelorette party! Typically dresses do not fit me right. The hips end up on my waist and the chest part of the dress hit up to high on my neck. This dress pulled in all the right places.

Can't explain how much i love this Herve Leger dress. It's not too revealing, very sophisticated. Dress is a bit worn out (too much rentals i guess) but it still looked ahh-mazing! RTR's service is always excellent! They called me that my dress was not available 2 days before my rental but they were able to send me another replacement the next day! It worked out perfectly because i like this more than my original rental! Amazing customer service, keep it up RTR!

I rented this dress on a Wednesday and got it that Friday. It was not my first choice dress but it was perfect for the event and RTR got it to me so fast. The dress looked slightly worn and stretched out in certain places which made it fit funny.

LOVED IT for summer wedding
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Fit is amazing - so comfortable especially when dancing all night! The fabric warms up to your body and allows you to feel great and look great. I received a ton of compliments on this. It was a tiny bit too short for my liking though, especially when walking (rides up a couple inches), but the neckline is a compromise as it provides a bit more coverage than a typical cocktail dress. Stunning color too!

I wore this at our Rent the Runway Employee Party - it was the first Herve I've ever tried on and wow - i get what all the hype's about! I wore the XS but could have easily gone a size up, it was super tight and flattering but really good at hiding any "flaws". Definitely a thumbs up for a bachelorette, night out on the town, date (lucky guy!), etc

I tried this dress on at a Rent the Runway employee party and felt like wearing it out that night! The tight fabric was very flattering and I felt as if the dress would stay put and looking great through out an entire party. It can be worn with an normal bra or without if you are comfortable which is very convenient. It was a bit longer then I was expecting and I would have sized down for back up.

I loved the look of this dress, but I think maybe the bandage dress is just not good for my body type. It fit, but barely (usually a size 8 and I ordered the medium). Ended up going with another dress. The color was gorgeous though!

Herve leger dresses are famously skin tight, and this dress definitely lived up to the rumors. I am very skinny, boobless girl, and this dress was entirely too tight for my comfort level. It would have looked awesome on a curvier girl. Also, just a side note, the purple color is definitely darker in person that it seems online.

Not very flattering for my hips and tummy area
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This is a very tight fitting dress, and shows off any lump or bump you may have. So it wasnt for me. It made my hips look extra wide, and made my tummy look a lot bigger than it really is. I have a long torso, and usually I dont have that problem, but for some reason this dress, hugged me in all of the wrong places. Which was a bummer, I was really excited to wear this. But RTR staff was amazing and sent me another dress that I can not wait to wear for NYE! Can not thank them enough, I dont think I've ever experienced amazing customer service like this.

This is a beautiful dress, but the small was VERY tight on me - I usually wear a size 4 dress. I wore it to dinner, but couldn't last in it for long afterwards! It was also very short on me, so I felt like I had to keep tugging it down. Still, it's a beautiful, extremely sexy dress!

The dress did not make it on time because of weather delay. I called RTR immediately and their customer service is nothing short of excellent. They gave me a credit for my next rental which I gladly used to try an HL dress again. The dress fit great and I tried it on with and without the Spanx and actually ended up going without since the spanx made it look too thick. The dress itself tucks everything in nice and tight. Love the dress for sure!

It definitely sucks you in and accentuates the curves. The color is electric - so pretty and eye catching without being obnoxious. My boobs however, were a little obnoxious because this dress is tight and "binds" you up. They have no choice but to swim fast to the surface for air ! haha Overall loved it though. Wore it in Vegas and it was a head turner.
