Party at a friend's house
It IS short on even me and I'm only 5'3 and it does run small. I wore a small and I'm normally an xs but I got a million compliments on it and a lot of attention. Great quality. The only thing I didn't like is that it made me look like my hips are wider than they are but still a showstopper!

Perfect dress to jazz up with 80's flare
I wore this dress to an 80's themed party. It was perfect with big hair and Capri leggings! Runs pretty true to size... And Herve usually runs small for me. This dress is a perfect mini dress for petite girls. Such a fun party dress. Comfortable for dancing and super cute!

Flirty Fun Safari Print
I love Herve dresses - this one was my husband's pick. I wasn't a fan of the lower area, but he loved the dress!

Fit beautifully and was perfect for a night salsa dancing
Fit perfectly on my petite frame. May be a tad short on someone taller. Very comfortable.

The way my boyfriend looked at me in the dress...
This dress was fun and different. The off-the-shoulder detailing makes the silhouette eye catching without being slutty. The tight fit was perfect- no Spanx necessary!

It was really fun to have some new and sexy for New Year's Eve!
It fits like a glove. I don't have much in the way of curves so it was perfect for me, but it isn't very forgiving. It bubbles out a little on the tummy. I tried it with spanks and it looked the same, but I've had two kids so I guess that's just what happens. It was very comfortable too.

Sassy and sexy in Vegas!
Perfect dress for Vegas! This was a replacement when my original choice was unavailable to ship -- not what I would have chosen as my first option, but so very glad I got this one. The print and styling was perfect for dinner & a show in Vegas. I loved how the skirt flounced around when I walked, and the stretchy fabric worked like Spanx without needing to wear extra layers. Note that unlike other Herve Leger dresses, this is not a "bandage dress" -- the pattern "strips" are part of the print on the fabric, and the printed sections are all one big piece. That being said it's still a similar fabric to Leger's classic bandage dresses, just not constructed in strips. Only real downside were the patterned horizontal straps that go across your biceps -- if I moved my arms much those rode up closer to the black vertical straps, which didn't look as good. It was easy enough to adjust throughout the night but I wouldn't recommend this for an event where you'll be waving your arms around a ton.

Flirty and unique. Form flattering but not for real curvy women!
This dress runs small! I usually wear an XS but I fit in a S and it was pretty snug. It accents your lower abdomen so if you're concerned about having to suck that in all night this won't be the dress for you! Otherwise it's very flirty but could be quite short on a taller girl. I am 5" and was concerned about how I would keep my booty covered!

This dress was right in every thread.
You can wear this dress with or without a bra. With this nice material you won't be able to see panty or bra lines which is a winner in my book.

Got a small and medium.
The small is really, really short. I'm 5'8" and my butt cheeks were almost visible. So, even though the small fit me better, I couldn't do it.

Super curve hugging, in a good way! Fun and easy to wear.
This dress was a little heavy and warm for the humidity and heat of Miami Beach, but was still great! Stretchy and form fitting, could wear with or without a bra. I didn't wear shapeware and had a tiny pouch of a tummy, but I guess you could wear Spanx. I usually show a little tummy because I have a tummy! Lol It wasn't to hard for boyfriend to zip up and I didn't feel too constricted, but I recall reading that if Herve zips easily it's too big. I could have worn the small but I was planning on sitting for dinner, so medium was comfy. It may be funner to have it shorter, but I'm 47 and totally was appropriate. Can't wait to rent more of this designer! Rent the Runway has been great and shipped dresses for vacation to the hotel, saving me from traveling with them and having a few days extra on the back end. Thanks RTR for helping me make this vacation super special!

Fun sexy dress for a girls night out in Lauderdale
This Herve dress is top quality, the fabric is thick and the bandage style makes the body look great! I did feel that it rode up a lot which made it a bit short, I felt I was pulling it down all night. Cute style for a girls night out, very fun. I wouldn't rent this style again but I'll rent another Herve dress for sure!

Great dress!
I rented this dress for an awards show. Although the dress is short, I felt totally comfortable in it at my height of 5'6 and even wore heels...

Easy to Wear
Fits nicely, it has a substantial feeling to it but is very comfortable on. I am busty and curvy, it covered my strapless bra perfectly. I did need to shimmy down the bottom part some but it wasn't a big deal. A very fun, easy dress. Recommend.

The coolest piece of clothing I have ever put on my body!
I wore this dress to my bachelorette party. The dress fit perfectly for my body type. I have very curvy hourglass shape. The color blocking hit all the right places! The fabric is thick and stretchy. Very well made. I might even rent it again!

Run small
The style seams nice. I wasn't able to try it because it runs smaller then I expected and I didn't like the fabric.

Fun and Flirty
This dress fit well in all the right places. Length is on the shorter side (I am 5'7") but not too short to be uncomfortable.

HL is always sexy this was to sexy for my body type!
I usually wear a Medium in HL. Sometimes L depending on stretch because I am very, naturally busty. This fit just fine for my 36 H 27 40 self, but I have a bubble butt and it was oh so short (I am about 5'6). if you have a struggle booty or your petite give it a try. Fun pattern

Love this dress!
I rented the small and the medium and thought I would wear the medium based on previous reviews, but ended up going with the small. The material on the medium bunched up in the stomach area when I was seated and there wasn't a huge difference in length. The dress is tight but it is such a nice thick material that I didn't need to wear spanx. I loved the print and it was perfect for a Florida wedding with an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception.

I have a pouch and an ass, so that was an issue. I wore Spanx, but I still felt like a pregnant cow. Good luck

Beautiful but runs large
I wore this out in Vegas. The dress in beautiful and fun. I like that it has a little different shape than other body con dress. I originally ordered another Herve Leger dress in a small and x small but the small came back too damaged so I picked this dress in a small instead. This dress ran large compared to other Herve Leger dresses I have rented. I have always worn a small but this small wasn't as tight and it kept bunching around my waist all night when I was sitting or moving around. The x small in other Herve Leger dress was too tight so I was stuck wearing this one. My advice: be prepared to size down.

Loved this dress!
I wore this to a friend's 30th Birthday Party. The dress was stretchy "bandage" material, which was super comfortable to wear. I would definitely wear this dress again!

Stylist review!
I rented this for my bachelorette party in Vegas. It was so cute and perfect for a night out! I could have worn a size S but I wanted to be comfortable while sitting at dinner. Loved it!
