Great dress.
Runs big, I'm usually a S in Herve but had to wear an XS and still felt it didn't mold to my body as well as other Herve dresses have.

Perfect Birthday!
I wore this dress to a high-end restaurant for my birthday. I ordered the size small with no back up size, although I wish I had ordered the XS just to see how it fit. The small was a little snug in the bust but a little loose in the hips etc... I'm not sure if the dress size runs this way or maybe it was a little stretched out in some areas. The side detail on the dress wasn't hardly noticeable because the bottom was a little big on me and not really tight. I wish the sheer side design was a little more noticeable. All in all, it was a great dress, it photographed well, and I ended up with some beautiful pictures to remember my special occasion. My husband also liked the dress.

Totally Recommend this dress! It was a home run!
I have looked at this dress for a while, but never rented it because I was always opting for colors rather than plain black, but there is NOTHING plain about this dress. It hugged every curve, flattered by figure & made me look fantastic. I loved it & I would rent again. The sides are super sexy the way they lace up & are sheer. Be careful when going to the bathroom & pulling up and down, the laces in the dress loosen & it is difficult to get them tightened back up again...not a reason not to rent this, but just something to be careful of.

Definitely a head turner.
Runs true to size if anything go up. The laced up sides came all messed up and didn't sit we'll on the body.

Perfect Vegas dress!
This is a sexy dress! From the front, it may look plain, but the side view shows off corset-like details at the bottom on both sides. The black mesh fabric underneath these details is see through.

very sexy!
Unfortunately, due to UPS error my dress never arrived. It was delivered to the wrong address. Once it was tracked down (a day late) I opened it up and tried it on before sending it back. GORGEOUS, SEXY dress! It ran a bit big but I would rent this dress again in the future. In fact I went back to rent this dress again but the rental price doubled. Oh well.

This dress is so sexy and fits very well! You will love it!
The only con I would note is the straps were very stretched out from larger chested women. I wore a strapless bra, so it wasn't awful, but I was having to push them higher on my shoulders all evening. I found that it for perfectly for standing events. Sitting down for too long may cause internal bleeding (jk, but it does get uncomfortable). Upon its arrival I noticed that the hook and eye closure was damaged. The hook was stretched out and literally hanging on by a thread. I contacted RTR immediately (I didn't want to be blamed for the damage) and they said they would refund the cost of the dress, which I thought was excessive and have yet to receive, but I would rent this dress again regardless. Your date will love this dress! It looks amazing!! I would not recommend for a family function-more for a date night.

Didn't actually get to wear it :( But i definitely would!
I didn't get to actually wear it due to miscommunication errors, but I did try it on and I loved it. So sleek, sexy, loved it. I just wish I had actually gotten to go to the event which I had rented it for.

1000 dress for 25 bucks with my bday coupon. Amazing !!
I purchased a medium to accommodate my hips so the dress was a little big on my bust but I made sure to wear a super padded bra. The dress was super sexy and tight. Really made me feel confident.

This dress fits like a glove! Can't help but feel amazing in it....
I was hesitant to rent this dress, because it looked so fitting to the body. But I decided to give it a chance. When I received the dress and put it on, I was so glad I rented it! Having had three kids, I was nervous about wearing something so tight- but the material and cut of this dress hid everything and made me feel really comfortable. I've always wanted to try a Herve Leger dress and this one didn't disappoint! I will definitely be renting this dress again!

Great night and a great dress!
Dress fit very well. The straps were a bit stretched out and fell off my shoulders. The thick material created a flattering fit. The side corset design was a nice touch, but wasn't really visible on me...maybe if I were taller or if the dress was tighter around my hips and thighs that would have helped. Definitely flattened out my breasts to the point of non existence. Overall a nice dress, but it ended up just looking like a black dress on me due to the details being obscured. I did get many compliments however.

Amazing and flattering dress!
I'm normally a size small and both the small and x-small fit. But the size small's straps were about an inch too long and it seemed a bit baggy below the hips, so I wore the x-small, even though it was a bit snug in the waist. I don't have enough good things to say about this dress! I felt so sexy in it and my husband wanted to buy it for me!

Very sexy dress, but be sure you have the body to pull it off! It does show flaws in the midsection. Still, if you've got a rockin bod, this dress will definitely show it off!

I felt great, slim and sexy in the dress!
Love the corset ties on the sides, it gives it flair unlike any other black dress. It was tight enough I didn't wear a bra although I could have. The shoulder straps could have been a little tighter but not so loose they slip off my shoulder.

lots of compliments and the dress was comfortable.
Dress was so sexy! I loved it. Only con was that the straps were a little loose, and it showed my bra sometimes. But other than that it was great.

Sexy
Fit perfectly. Straps weren't too long for me, though I know others complained. I couldn't wear a strapless bra because of the way it was cut. The seams on the inside of the cups of the bust are itchy, though! Overall I would rent this one again.

Not for Petites
I'm usually a small in HL dresses. I tried both the XS and S, and the XS fit better. The straps were a little long, which was OK, because I'm a little fuller in the chest. I just don't know how a more petite person would wear this dress. I'm 5'4 and the dress was past my knees. It's a beautiful dress, just need someone with a different body than mine to reach its true potential.

I wore the dress for a bachelorette party and received compliments all night.
My experience with Rent The Runway was flawless, and the dress was amazing. I'm over 6 ft tall, so I loved the length. It fit wonderfully and I felt spectacular in it. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Sexy, Stunning, and Classy!
This dress was perfect in every way! I was so sad to send it back! I rarely find a dress that fits every part of my just right, and I felt like this dress was made for me. The quality of the fabric is amazing, and the attention to detail is unparalleled. I will definitely rent Herve Leger dress again! Formal and classy with just a touch of sexy.

I felt 100% comfortable and 110% sexy in this Herve Leger dress~
I could wear a M or S but the small actually looked more flattering because it holds everything in! I am 38 and have two kids and didn't even have to wear a bra with this one. Danced all night at a Madonna concert.

Beautiful dress classy with a touch of sexy !
I absolutely adore this dress!!! I was so sad when it came time to send it back but it made me appreciate the moment even more. This dress did run a little big because I am usually a large, but for that perfect fit, the medium was essential to hug the right curves and make my body look amazing! The mesh corset tie on the side added the perfect sexy to this dress, not too revealing. However, because of my bust, the cut did some down, some tape would have secured this just fine. I got so many compliments, and would definitely rent a different style from this designer again. I strongly reccommend it!!!

Sexy lil black dress!
I'm 5'5" and 125 pounds and should have ordered an XS. It was too long and too large in the waist. Still looked nice but I was straightening it all night. I'm a D bra and the chest area fits nicely. The dress stretches too. My shoes were very bright and sparkly and really brought life to this simple dress! Overall the outfit was great for a Christmas wedding and I loved the compliments about how tiny I looked in it! :)

Seeing my boyfriend's face let me know the dress was perfect!
It was a little hard to zip but with patience I did. The side corset was gorgeous and added oomph to an already gorgeous dress! It was the perfect length. I avoided some dance moves as I was nervous to have a wardrobe malfunction but that was no big deal, LOL! The dress came on time and I even received an e-mail telling me when it was on the way. I will definitely use RTR again!

Love, love, loved this dress!
I was truly uncontrollable in dress because you couldn't stop me! I went to a wedding in the NY Palace Hotel and felt stunning in it! Everyone was commenting! It fit like a glove! AMAZING! Was not impressed with the photo of it on the website, I thought "a bit cheesy on the sides" but man is it a classy fit/look and of course extremely sexy. I also rented the Kara Moss glitter clutch which went amazingly well with the dress!

This is such a sexy dress! The side corset is so amazing, it is stretchy so you don't have to worry about sizing it yourself. I would suggest the NuBra and the black tights with the back seem. To die for!! So many compliments!!!

I wasn't feeling confident enough to wear this dress, I knew it would be very tight but it just didn't flatter my body. I know now that the bandage dresses are not for me.

Great, sexy dress for a party
I wore this dress for my birthday party and felt like a million bucks. It's really sexy (don't wear this one around your parents!) with the corset detail going higher than expected (right to wear my underwear hit). It seems like Herve Leger dresses stretch out a bit, as I received a different HL dress in a medium as my backup, but the small in this felt more comfortable. It was definitely tight in the bust area, but not uncomfortable. It's a very flattering dress.
