Based on the reviews here, I ordered and XS and a S (I'm 5'3'', 112 lbs, and 34C bra size). The XS was ridiculously tight on me but the S, despite being just the teensiest bit big on me, looked beautiful. The color, length, and fit was just perfect. I got lots of compliments (even from people I didn't know)!

Loved, loved, loved this dress! It was the perfect length, not too too short! I rented a L (I'm a size 10) It fit a little large in the boob area (I'm a 36C) but it wasn't too noticeable. Very comfortable the whole night! Wore it to a Vegas nightclub and everyone loved it! The color is beautiful!

when my cake came out at the club & i was wearing this amazing dress i felt like a celebrity for the night.

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
this was my first choice for my 21st birthday weekend. my measurements are 34-28-40 so i ordered the S and M. i wish i would have ordered the XS because it was a tad big in the breast area. i ended up wearing a strapless bra that sticks on the sides of your breast for extra support. this dress is perfect for tan skin! i felt like a celebrity and all eyes were on me! this dress is actually very slimming! loved it.

It was great! All your reps are amazing!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
My measurements are 33-26-39.5 I ordered an XS and a S. The XS was GREAT on top since I have no boobs, but super tight on the bottom, so I had to wear the S in order to make my giant butt fit. I wore a gel backless bra to try to fill in the top. The main problem was that it was clearly too big on top, and after wearing it an hour it became loose. It got progressively looser throughout the night. When I got home the dress looked TERRIBLE, it was super loose on top and kept moving around. I got a TON OF COMPLIMENTS though. I'm usually pale for being Latina so I got a tan and that really really helped the dress pop. I thought it would be too short but it was the perfect length to cover up any cellulite on my thighs lol. Overall: It looks super hot in the beginning. It definitely sucks you in and gives you curves and an amazing body. But, you definitely need boobs for this dress.

This dress is absolutely stunning! It fit fabulously and the color really complemented my skin tone. I was IN LOVE :) I highly recommend this dress. I wore it without a bra but I'm a 32DD so no bra needed :) If you have a smaller chest you might find it a bit big in this area.

This dress fits beautifully! After reading many reviews on this dress, I ordered an x-small and a small. The x-small was WAY too short! I ended up wearing the small and it worked out wonderfully. I am typically a size 4 in dresses and size 28 in jeans. I did not have to wear a bra with this dress - the material thick enough at the top to cover up. I plan to rent Herve again in the future!

I rented this for a hot outdoor summer wedding. The top fit a little loosely and the bottom was good, but that's more so probably because of my shape. I will say that I wish I was more tan for this dress .... I wouldn't recommend it for those with fair skin! Overall very happy I chose this one.

I wore this dress back in November 2011 for my 21st birthday party and it was the best! Fit true to size, really comfortable and made me look and feel super tiny. Wasn't stretched out then at all. Had to wear sticky boobs from victorias secret since a bra isn't an option but they worked great. Loved the dress and would 100% rent again.

I wanted to have a weekend to remember for my best friend's bachelorette party in Vegas, and Herve Leger seemed to do the trick. This dress is gorgeous on, the color was great on my skin tone and it was comfortable for all-night dancing. The only issue I had was that the dress I received had a small pink stain toward the top right front (lip pencil, perhaps?). Since it was difficult to spot, I wore the dress anyway... Everyone loved it!

The dress was simply stunning. I ordered it in an XS and M. It arrived the day before my function. The medium was far too large and I was going to wear the extra-small but the coloring was all faded and had three stains on it! I called RTR and they overnighted the dress in a S, which suddenly became available. It was a gorgeous dress but I would have loved for them to have the nerve to send me one with stains and a fading color. I received compliments all night, though!

I was nervous at first when renting this number. I can't get away with something that has an open back because I have to wear a bra, but I was so pleased that this dress enabled me to do something I have never been able to do! This dress felt amazing when I put it on. The contours of the fabric work really well for someone who is hourglass and/or larger breasts - it doesn't flatten you out, but it provides lift and separation like a bra would.

I wore this dress for my birthday; my boyfriend said he had a surprise for me and to get dressed up. I always wanted a harve leger dress and I finally got to wear one. The surprise was dinner on a yacht, it was windy but the dress stayed in place. I love sexy backs and this one had one. The color was great on my olive skin. If your looking for a sexy dress this is the one.

You really don't need a bra with Hervé Léger. This dress "hugs" everything literally, not that I have extra meat but it definitely made me like I was wearing spans (a little exaggeration). If you conscious about your body or not, this designer dress FITS EVERYBODY! It's DOES DEFINE YOUR SHAPE...

I normally wear a 4-6 and the small was tight on my hips but the medium was loose on the top. I choose the medium and it worked out fine. Got lots of compliments on the color and fit felt amazing in it. The only thing was it got looser over the evening so if its only a little snug, maybe wear the smaller size because it will stretch out in the evening.

For some reason I thought I would need a S and not a XS so the dress did fit a little big, but it still looked great. However in some pictures the pattern of the dress looked off, but it was great in person. If i had worn the right size, it would have been perfect.

The small was actually a little big, I should've worn the extra small that I also ordered. However, I was a little smaller than usual when I wore it, so that might explain it.
