Hello Spring!
Perfect dress for a date night with my husband on a perfect spring night. I paired with nude matte peep toe heels and rose gold accessories. In the size small, I didn't need a strapless bra or a nu bra.

This dress is GORGEOUS! I felt like a celeb :)
I wore this dress to a friend's wedding and it was GORGEOUS! I got soooo many compliments on it. While it was a bit tight, I assumed it was going to be snug, since it's Herve Leger and I knew the style. I was just praying it wasn't "too" tight and too "revealing", but with the help of some Spanx, it was perfect! It is much tighter than what I am normally used to wearing, but I wasn't uncomfortable at all - this dress is a show stopper! I felt great all night because everyone just kept telling me how great I looked and how gorgeous my dress was. Some friends even asked to borrow it! I had to break it to them that it was a RTR rental ;) Thanks so much!

Such a fun dress!
I wore this dress for Kentucky Derby weekend at the track. The Kentucky Oaks is a "pink out" event so this dress was perfect. The dress is definitely revealing. I have tried on other Herve dresses before and this one does not fit quite as snug. Probably because it has been worn several times. The other Herve dresses I have worn in the past really hold everything in. This one didn't do that quite as well. was still a great dress and a lot of fun to wear.

Perfect fit!
The dress fit great, like a typical Herve dress. It definitely held everything together. Loved the design of the back. Only bad thing, and not really that bad, was that the shoulder strap slid more towards my neck and I would have preferred it to sit a little further over. But that really didn't bother me too much, it was perfect.

Bachelorette party in Vegas - Perfect!!
This dress fit me like a glove! It was so comfortable, I danced and partied all night without worrying about anything falling out of place. The colors were amazing on my skin tone...I got stopped multiple times by strangers telling me the dress was gorgeous! Loved everything about it - wish I could buy it!

This dress was perfect for the premiere of my comedy series! Fun and sexy at the same time!
This dress fit perfectly and photographed well, although I was told later that the white on top was see-thru in person and could see the petals I used. But other than that, it was beautiful!

Elegant and Feminine
It's a nice dress. You can fit many occasions. If you pair it with a jacket, it fits well in the office. If you wear this alone with some big earrings and metallic bagel, it can rock the party!

Gorgeous coloring and beautiful back.
I had never worn an Herve Ledger dress before and was not sure whether a S or a M was a better fit. I ended up wearing the M, and by the end of the night it was a little big in the one shoulder. It was very comfortable though, and the ombre coloring was really beautiful. Spring time wedding outside, and I am blond and pretty fair. Our pictures were great.

Drses was so pretty I had to wear it...even though it wasn't my size.
So I ordered this in a Medium and a Large for my friend Alexis to wear in Vegas for my bachelorette weekend. Unfortunately, the previous renter of this dress did not return the Medium, so we only got the large (HUGE shoutout to RTR's customer service for contacting me swiftly and sending me another option in the correct size!). The dress is just SO GORGEOUS that we decided not to let it go to waste, and I wore it out to lunch and to ride the gondolas at the Venetian. It fit loose, ESPECIALLY in the chest, but I threw on my best strapless padded bra and went for it. I think this dress would really be accommodating to girls with fuller busts. Anyway, the dress is beautiful and very well made (as all Herves are) and I would love to rent this in my correct size in the future!!

Stunning!
I had been dying to wear a Herve and was beyond excited to have the opportunity to finally wear one. This dress lived up to the hype - it was sexy but still classy. As I walked through Indy, strangers stopped to compliment me and ask where I got my dress! Perfect for dancing. I was only disappointed that I had to ship it back!

Everyone kept commenting on how the dress was amazing!
I had tried on a Small in a different style at the store and it was a little more forgiving than this small. Was a tight squeeze to zip up, but once on felt great.

Gorgeous dress. Colors are exactly like in the model picture. Very slimming.
Unfortunately the dress had some spots on the front and I wasn't able to wear it to the event I went to. The stains were not visible when just looking at the dress, but when you put it on and the fabric stretched out, you could see them. Rent the Runway has been great to deal with and I will be using them again for all the weddings coming up

Hot little number
This was not the originally dress I wanted to rent, but was available for the date I needed. The dress was a little dirty at the neck, which I cleaned easily with shot wipes. The inside though looked like it had been stained with sunless tanner. The dress was very snug in the hips, but made my stomach look flat and my butt look perfectly plump (which is rare for me). Even though I'm a 34d-dd the top was a little loose. The dress is hard to get into alone, but once your in you still feel like you can breathe, eat, and dance. Overall it was very pretty and flattering, but I do wish it had been cleaned better.

Pretty Dress for club or bachelorette, NOT Wedding!
This dress was extremely fitted as expected. What I didn't expect was how see through and unforgiving it was. I had read and assumed that Herve dress were tight and held everything in, and that the fabric was thick. The fabric was thick and uncomfortable and didn't hide anything! This dress would have worked for a very very specific body type. Large chest and extremely thin everywhere else. Also it ended up not being wedding appropriate at all, but that was my mistake. Next time I will save Herve dresses for going out ! Since this dress didn't work out for me, Rent the Runway was amazing about trying to help me out and refunding me so that I could find a dress that worked. I appreciated their fast response time and willingness to work with me to find something else.

Tight, sexy. hot dress!
This dress is super fitting. I loved the bright colors of it and the fit. It is a very form fitting dress and every curve shows. The issue I had with the dress is wearing bra. It was so form fitting that you could see the outline of your bra which made it look bad. I ended up going braless and found out later on in pics that you could basically see my nipples through the white top. Maybe where pasties?

All eyes on me...
This dress is AH-MAZING!!! I got both the small & medium (just in case). The reviews are right. The small is best, with a little extra work getting it closed. No extra support garments needed. I never adjusted or tugged at this dress, despite its snugness. And all night everyone (young and old, male and female) showered me with compliments. This was easily the prettiest dress at the wedding next to the bride's.

This was my first experience with RTR and I can't wait to use the site in the future!
This dress was extremely comfortable and fit like a glove. I got many compliments and felt great wearing it. I loved being able to see how the dress looked on "real girls" instead of just the model before renting. I was able to wear a strapless bra and Spanx under the dress. The small almost worked but was too short and wouldn't zip in the bust area (at least comfortably). I would definitely rent this dress again and I can't wait to try another Herve Leger dress! Thanks, RTR :) Customer service was also wonderful.

The ease of ordering and quick delivery! I was in a bind and was able to get everything in time!
The dress fit like a dream and held everything together. I Loved the design of the back. I went with the large instead of the medium because the medium shoulder strap slid more towards my neck and the large gave me a little more comfort. I would definitely rent this dress again and I can't wait to rent another Herve Leger for a wedding I am attending later this year.

Dinner date with my hubby at The Wynn Las Vegas
Definitely not my favorite Hervé Léger (this was my 3rd one rented at RTR). The dress color and fabric looked a little bit worn out. But still a very fancy dress for a dinner date.

It was definitely TIGHT so be prepared to feel very snug. If you are wearing any kind of underwear underneath the outline is very visible.

Loved the Color!
This dress was perfect for a night out in Las Vegas. It is a wonderful, thick fabric that sucks everything in and is surprisingly comfortable! I had no problem wearing a strapless bra underneath. It was shorter than I'm used to, but I fit right in.

Herve goes Barbie Doll!
I wore this dress to my pink themed bachelorette. It was perfect! I got compliments all night and felt hot in this dress. I normally wear a 2 and was between sizes in this dress. I ended up wearing the S because the XS looked a little more worn out but by the end of the night the S was huge on me. So I would definitely size down if you can.

No Spanx needed
Loved this dress!! I rented the Medium and Large for my girlfriend's bachelorette party. I wore with the large since the medium was a bit too tight in the hips, but I had a few issues with the material gaping around the bust. I'm not sure if that's just the size or if it's been stretched out, but it wasn't that big of an issue for me since I actually received compliments from complete strangers off the street. (Talk about ego boost) I'll definitely rent this dress again.

Wore this to a nice dinner in Napa in the summer - felt very appropriate. It's typical Herve sizing -- I could have worn the XS but since I was going for an 18 course meal I opted for a little more room. ;)

Great dress, once I got into it
I was a little worried about how this dress would look on me as I have a bit of a tummy, and you know, stripes + wide mid-section usually is a no-no (but it was so pretty I decided f-it). But actually, the fabric is thick enough (and tight enough) that it kind of reins everything in. It was HARD to zip up. I had to tug a bit to close it. But other commenters are right in that it loosens up through the evening. What felt almost uncomfortably tight in the beginning felt like a comfortable glove by the end. I love the back. And the dress is a gorgeous color. I wore it with sticky cups instead of a strapless, and you could still see a little bit of an outline (and in pictures for some reason the boob part looks weird even tho it looked fine in the mirror). Overall though I thought the dress was really flattering and I felt hot in it. I wanted to keep it! Also, it's worth noting that I tried the medium on too. And even though it was looser and easier to put on/zip up, it actually made me look FATTER. Why? Because the fabric wasnt as tight, and didn't bind everything in as well! Also the whole thing just looked bigger on me and much less flattering. So I would def go for your true size for this dress, and not size up.

Special dress for a special day!
I wore this gorgeous Herve Leger dress for my Bridal Shower. I rented the small and medium, but wore the medium since the small wouldn't zipper over my chest. If you have a bigger bust I would suggest going a size up in Herve Leger dresses. I also rented the Kenneth Jay Lane Polished Crystal Drop Earrings, which were a great touch. I got a ton of compliments on this dress and it was a fabulous choice for my special day!

I felt stunning for our five month anniversary <3
I normally wear a small, but this dresses material was very tight and does not really stretch. The medium felt great and very comfortable, and was a little classier because the length was longer. I did not want to give this dress back!

I loved this dress!
I always love Herves and this dress was no exception. Fit perfect and was long enough that it didn't look too short- which is usually a problem for me when I use Rent the Runway. I was comfortable all night and everyone else seemed to love the dress too!

I wore this dress the night of my wedding after party and it made me feel like a star!
Felt and looked like a movie star in this dress. Our wedding reception ended early so we had an after party at a local night club where I changed out of my wedding dress and into this dress. I got compliments left and right all night long!

Most flattering dress i've ever worn!
I wore this dress for my bachelorette party in vegas and loved it! I'm pretty curvy and the fit was fabulous! I ordered both the M and L and opted for the large since the M hugged my stomach/butt just a little too much. I'm normally an 8/10 for bottoms, M for tops. On top of everything the dress was so comfortable, I didnt want to take it off. I wish i could have kept it!

This dress was HOT!
It was a toss up between the Small and X-Small but I went with the XS because it was a bit more narrow on top which was better suited for my small chest. I wore the Nu-Bra to give me some added shape. EVERYONE complimented this dress - from the bride to my grandfather to the bartender. It is beyond form fitting but in a respectful, classy way. I wore it with nude platform heels. What I love most about it is how original the design is. Not your typical LBD. If you want to make a statement, you cannot go wrong with this dress.
