I wore this for my high school homecoming and it was perfect! Nobody else had anything like it!
I usually wear a small, but I was glad my extra dress was an XS because that fit me perfectly! Very tight and form fitting but the fabric is thick so you can't see any lumps and bumps!

this dress is hot! i'm between a 2 & 4 and the xs is perfect. it's super mini even on me (5'2") and hugs you in the right places. you don't need to wear a bra (32c) since it hugs you so tightly and the material is thick enough to cover any nippleage. extremely comfortable and the peach color is very flattering on dark bronze skin tone

I rented this dress for a formal, and absolutely loved it. I couldn't zip up the XS, but thankfully the S fit me perfectly. I paired the dress with nude peep toe pumps, and wore my hair up in a messy bun. I felt confident and sexy, and received many compliments throughout the night. Although I'm a 34C, I still needed sticky boobs to fill out the chest part fully. Rent this!

<33333 This dress is greater than everything good in the world combined!!! I wore this to a school dance and I was like the hottest thing to have ever existed. It fit like a glove from the waist down, but I'm small chested and it was a bit big at the top. But I filled it out with those sticky backless boob bra thingies, so it was all good :). The color is slightly more orange in person and the bandage pattern is reallllllly cool!!! The fit was pretty snug and you kind of have to be pretty thin to look good in it (no offense to anyone) and I had to hardcore diet for a week so I wouldn't have to suck in. If you have a belly or you're bloated, it'll most likely show but it does give you a bit of leeway and it's not as unmerciful in the fat-showing department as I though it would be. And it made my butt look nice and big!!! (Then again, my butt is really big :)!!)

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!

definitely runs true to size, got a small and it fit me like a glove. i do have a healthy bust and this really strapped it down, and i couldn't really wear a strapless to boost up the boobage because of the backstraps, so don't wear this dress expecting to show some of that. beautiful dress though. however, the color is way more orange-y than it looks on the site, but still quite a show stopper. i paired it with black jeweled earrings and it looked great

HOLY SMOKES!! Is what this dress should be called. VERY sexy, perhaps the sexiest dress I have ever worn, no wonder why Kim Kardashian is always rocking this designer. I am on this petite/thinner side so I was able to pull it off. It is VERY tight but worth going on a diet for! I wore gold strappy shoes and gold accessories with it. Looks much better than the black.

My fiancé's face :)
This dress is AMAZING! I was 130lbs at the time, 34C and I rented a Small. I wore it to a class reunion and got so many compliments. I paired it with Badgley Mischka "Fierce" Gold Sandals, clutch & earrings and the whole outfit was perfect! The color is more of a soft peach color than a bright papaya color. The fabric is very form flattering, but thicker than I imagined. However, it is flexible and light. I LOVE renting Herve Leger dresses!

I normally wear an XS in Herve Leger dresses, however this dress is REALLY small. It was even too small on my girlfriend who is skin & bone, no bust. A real bummer, it would have been awesome if it was a size or two bigger.

This dress was incredibly amazing on! Beginning with the color it is truly papaya as papaya color could get! It looks great on you if you are tanned. I think this dress would make anyone look skinnier even for those who aren't very skinny. It really enhances your curves. It is an eye catcher dress and girls who don't even know me came walking across the room just to give me a compliment. If your going to wear this dress, be ready to turn some heads!!

I didn't end up wearing this because the Small was too big on top (I wear an A/B). It is a super cute dress but keep in mind it is short!

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

You look truly gorgeous. Your curvy figure makes the dress look better on you than on the model. Happy belated b'day!

I absolutely loved this dress... I wore it to LIV night club in Miami and Im convinced it help my bf and I get past the ropes on a sold out max capacity night. I wore it with no bra, just an invisible bra for victorias secret for some cleavage. The XS fit perfectly, I am 5'8'' 135 pounds and usually wear a size 2 or 4.

The Perfect birthday dress!!
I wore this dress for my 20th birthday at a special invite. I was in love with this dress the minute I took it out of the box! The color is gorgeous and I kept receiving complements all night! I'm a 32DD but the top was very controlled and tasteful. This was my first RTR rental and I'm addicted! You won't regret this dress at all!!

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)!

Nice Dress
the color of this dress is so nice on tan skin and i wore it with chunky turquoise and gold jewelry which really made it stand out. Although it does accentuate curves, you've got to be in good shape because it hugs everywhere on your body! the bigger size looks weird because the material is heavy. So i would only reccomend it if youre looking for something tight. other than that great dress!

"Girl where'd you get that BODY?"
Snug as a glove fit. I'm a pear shape and it fit just about perfectly. I would certainly recommend a pair of spanx, too - just to emphasize and accentuate your curves. Damn, I got a lot of compliments wearing this dress! The color is wonderful and will also make you look tanner in the cold, dreary months of winter. A wonderful party dress! Pity I don't have any

Obsessed!
I loved this dress! It runs short so it came a few inches above my knee. This dress is hard to wear a bra with and the bandage material sucks you in so no spanx needed!

Outstanding!
Wore this dress for New Year's & I was impressed. The only drawback is my chest did not fill out the cup portion of the dress the way I expected. However, the way the dress fit my curves & accentuated my behind, that was a very small flaw. I felt beautiful & I turned a lot of heads. I will be wearing more of Harve, for sure!

Loved it!
It fit perfectly but if you don't have a tiny waist you might have difficulty zipping up the back. It is very flattering on a flat stomach and really accentuates the butt. I was afraid it would be a little bit too orange for my skin tone (i'm olive but haven't tanned in a while) but the color is better in person then I expected.

Being dressed to kill with my best friends, some who were also wearing RTR. We got our dresses delivered to our hotel, so when we arrived in Vegas we were so excited to have them there!
This dress was amazing. Being able to stand out in Las Vegas where everyone is dressed to die for, I literally got complimented 10 times within the first 5 minutes of walking through the hotel in this dress. Paid for itself in compliments alone! I got an XS and a S and ended up wearing the S because I could actually breathe in the S, but with Herve you want it tight. Definitley a figure flattering dress, you can't help but feel sexy.

Amazinnnnnnnnnnggg
This dress is beautiful. The color is amazing. The picture on the site doesn't do it justice. When you wear the dress and take pictures, you realize how the color pops and shines. The dress is not meant for girls with large backs due to the fact that the dress is very form fitting and may cause "back fat" issues. I have a large chest (size 34DD), and the only glitch was that the dress made me look very flat chested. I have never received so many compliments on a dress in my life. I have a new obsession with Herve Leger. The dresses give you insane curves

I got soo many compliments on this dress!
I wore this dress to my sorority formal and I absolutely loved it! I ordered a small and an extra small and, although the small was not a whole lot larger, it actually zipped. This dress is awesome for girls with a little curve- the back zipper really accentuates your hips/butt and the open back is so sexy! Also, not having to wear a bra was great. It definitely looks better if you're a little tan, since the color is a bit more orange than it looks in the main RTR picture. Overall, absolutely loved this dress and will definitely be renting from RTR again.

Gorgeous dress for birthday
Although this is true to size, the fabric is very stretchy and becomes loose after a few hours of wear. Still, an absolutely gorgeous dress, and the color is amazing!
