Classy, sexy, comfy. Loved
I wore this in Vegas for drinks and out at Bellagio. Received many compliments from men and women including from cocktail waitresses who wanted to know where I got it. I would definitely rent it again (or buy it) and also other Hervé Léger dresses. Only complaints would be that the side zipper can ripple a bit and my sister needed to help me zip it up. Both of these things could have been because XXS was the only size available so I had to squeeze in. Also I would go for silicone no show petals or bra and not the fabric ones because they can still show through. I think you could wear a strapless bra depending on the cut of it but probably don't need one. Either way, this was a comfy, classy, unique and flattering dress that would look good on many different shapes and sizes. Better than a regular old LBD!

A fun, flirty dress to ring in the new year!
Being short waisted, the top was a little loose. I ordered the XS as a back up size, but it didn't ship. I'm curious if the smaller size would have been a better fit for me. Otherwise, the dress was actually quite comfortable, even on the dance floor!

Beautiful dress - Size S was a little bit big
I rented this dress for a wedding in Mexico and I absolutely loved it. I think I would have worn the XS because the S was a little bit big (stretched out I think). Still loved it and would rent it again. I received many compliments!

This dress was perfect for a late summer wedding! It fit great and arrived on time, clean.
It fit great on my frame, came pretty much to my knees which worked for me. It arrived on time and was clean, maybe a little faded in some spots. It definitely was tight at first, but stretched out as the day went on. As an awesome bonus I had no problem wearing a strapless underneath the dress!

Caught the bouquet!
Worn to my friend's wedding. Lots of compliments, very comfortable material, flattering, and classy. XS wasn't available so I had to squeeze into XXS. It fit like a glove but I had a little trouble zipping it at the top. I really did love this dress. It photographed well and I caught the bouquet at the wedding!

Beautiful color
Dress was stretched out and didn't provide the structure Herve dresses usually do. My tummy is a problem spot for me. I had to wear a corset to hold it in, which made sitting awkward. That being said standing looked great and I got lots of compliments!

The spectacular sexiness of Hervé, in a classier. more unique cut than others in this price range.
I always love Hervé's thick material. As a very skinny girl, I appreciate that it keeps my hipbones from protruding too much, which can easily cheapen a bodycon look. For any body type, the material allows you (encourages you, really!) to go braless, which I'm a huge fan of doing. This particular dress uses shades of a gorgeous, glowing grapefruit color, which photograph beautifully and flatter any skin tone. I suggest matching your lip color as closely as possible with the deepest shade. I happened to have a patterned shoe that worked well with the dress, but a solid shoe in a neutral color (nude, cream, black if you have dark hair) is usually going to be your best bet for completing the look. One con: There was only one imperfection with the fit on me. You can see in the picture that there is a wrinkle, indicating looseness, around my bust and under my arm. The XS that I wore might simply have been worn by someone with a larger bust than me. Be aware of this if you are small chested.

I rented this dress for my own wedding rehearsal/dinner. I felt like a million bucks in it!
Either get some Spanx or work out like a fiend. I chose the latter, and probably could have still benefitted from some Spanx, as the dress reveals more and holds in less than you'd think. This dress is super cool and sexy. I loved wearing it and got tons of compliments!

I wore this dress in Las Vegas. The XS was too snug, so I wore the Small. My butt tends to be biggest part of my body. It was great to dress to dance in.

Very cute and loved the colors!
I wore this dress for my friend's bachelorette party in Miami. It was perfect for the occasion, as I felt comfortable (not slutty) wearing it out to a nice dinner, then to the club right after. I had worried I might be hot considering the thick material, but this wasn't the case at all. My only complaint is that the top of the dress gaped a little, and I was wearing a strapless bra that I kept making sure wasn't hanging out. This could probably be easily fixed with a discreet safety pin, but I didn't have one on hand. I also was expecting the dress to kind of "suck you in" a little more, but wasn't so lucky. Of course, I'd also spent the weekend eating and drinking so that didn't help. I would definitely rent again and recommend to anyone! It's perfect for a fun, sexy outfit that isn't slutty!

Fine line with this one
I have rented multiple Herve's from RTR in the past and have always worn a size small. This small seemed TOO small this time. Unfortunately, the medium was so big with the way the dress was cut that I was stuck in the small for the evening. I almost considered not wearing it but decided to suck it up (and in)!

Perfect Fit/ Classy yet Young and Sexy!!
I am in love with this dress it was so perfect for my Valentines Day Birthday at Rainbow Room NYC. I love the pink tones and the length of this which is so classy and not up super high like a bachelorette dress. I felt so sexy yet classy truly felt gorgeous the whole night, great for skinny girls! VERY VERY tight dress but if you have a smaller body then it will be great for you!

The dress is definitely snug, but since it is meant to be that way I didn't think anything of it. It cinches in all the right places and makes you feel amazing. Big confidence booster wearing a dress like this

I got engaged while wearing this dress on a vacation to Mexico!
I normally wear a 4 or 6, and ordered the S and M in this dress. The small was way too short (I'm 5 ft. 8) but the medium was perfect. It definitely "sucks" you in and makes you feel so feminine! You need a adhesive backless bra for sure as no way you could wear a regular strapless bra due to the low straps in the back. Got so many compliments all night and from our pictures! I would recommend metallic or neutral shoes and earrings.

Felt sexy in this dress!
The dress was amazing, fits true to size but is very tight but does not feel uncomfortable because it is stretchy. Received a lot of compliments on this dress, and would definitely rent this again. This was my first RTR experience and I loved it.

NYE fun!
I have worn Herve Leger before, small fit great. This time the zipper barely came up- but when it did it was plenty comfortable. And with dancing, the dress stretched some as well. Looked great, felt great!

not worth it
This dress arrived too late for me to wear (my ordering error) but I would not have worn it. Usually love Leger but this looked dingy, zipper was peeling etc. Glad I had rented on discount since it ended up being a waste (both the small and medium looked basically the same but I would have needed the medium if I had worn it)

Makes me want to only wear Hervé bandage dresses from now on!
I wore this to a "senior soirée" for my graduating college class. Last time I rented an Hervé dress the Medium fit me better, but this time around the Small actually fit better in the bust. I ended up wearing the Medium just to be more comfortable, but bear in mind it's slightly stretchy so if you're in between sizes the smaller once might be better given the cut of this dress. I received many compliments!

cool but not super flattering
The colors were a bit off and not quite complimentary on pale skin like mine. Beautifully made, but not a great dress for me. The cut on top wasn't very flattering either, maybe better on busty girls. Skirt was longer then I wanted in a going- out dress.

Perfect birthday dress!!
Dress was just perfect!! I ordered xs and small. I wore the xs and it fit like a glove. I have a big bust and I was afraid it wouldn't stay up on one side because of the one shoulder but it did AND it made me look like I have an hourglass shape! Perfect for my 26th birthday date with my husband :) and I loved the ombré look! Also, a big plus, it was soooo comfy!! I was sad to return it :( I would definitely rent this again!

Fabulous color & thick fabric
I rented this for my bachelorette party weekend & it arrived in perfect condition but the top was too big for my boobs to fit even with a push up bra & the bottom part gave me muffin top/rolls because it was so small (I'm curvy) I got the small & med hoping one would fit since I'm a size 6.

Runs ridiculously small
I'm a tall, slim size 4. Not curvy at all. Ordered this in a S and it was so tight there was a 4" zipper gap. Had to order an emergency backup to replace it. Not cool.

Wow!
This dress is a stunner. The fabric is amazing and thick enough to hold everything and not leave any lumps or bumps. It was longer on me than I had expected which was a good thing. I love this dress and would love to find another reason to rent it in the future. A little too 'hot' for most of the events I rent dresses for. But what a great party dress.

Well I was so excited to wear this dress to my wedding rehearsal dinner. But even before I could get it on, I noticed a big hole on the side of the dress. It honestly looked like the seem had split open. I hope to try and rent this dress again in the near future.

Great for a summer wedding
I wore this to a friends wedding and loved it. It fit very well throughout the body, the only thing that was weird about it was the sleeve one the shoulder kept bunching up and puckering out. Other than that It was perfect for what I wanted. Easy to dance in as well
