Loved It! Worn to Formal Work Holiday Party
This fit exactly as described by others, I didn't however at all feel like it was worn in, although naturally it loosened a little by the end of the night. I wanted a combination form fitting/ appropriate dress and didn't want to buy one so I found this. They only had an XS, and really I should be in a small. I absolutely needed my fiancé to zip it up, but once it was one it did fit wonderfully. As for the arms, they are tighter, but they didn't bother me. My chest I think helped to keep the shoulders in place, but towards the end of the night I was pulling them up so I wish I had utilized my fashion tape. I'm actually wearing a bralette from victorias secret, because the dress without it would be a little much for the event. It was pretty low cut, if it was just my fiancé and I on date night then I wouldn't have worn the bralette. Past finger tip length by at least 3". Best thing about it fitting as it did was not needing spanx necessarily. I would wear again, I had a hard time putting it back in the bag to give it back.

Sexy Dress!
Dress was snug and flattering, a true Herve Leger! Wore spanx with it to smooth out any imperfections. Neckline was sexy but not too much. The long sleeves make it a little more conservative, balancing out the lower neckline. Fit was comfortable. Can wear a regular bra with it. Felt amazing wearing this dress!

Perfect weather for a New England wedding.
Sadly I was unable to wear this fabulous dress. The sz S fit very well, but was just too clingy in the wrong places for my liking.

Great fitting dress but shoulders bothered me later in the night.
I wore this dress in Vegas and I will say that it made my chest look fantastic. Later in the night, I had issues in keeping the dress on my shoulders and that was a bit annoying. I wore a regular bra and just moved the straps of the bra to the end and so if you wore a strapless bra, that might be better. I didn't like how my hips looked in the dress but I know that if I wore Spanx or something, it would've looked much more smoother. Would rent another dress by same designer but different shoulders.

Great black dress
This was my option 2 dress and because my option 1 worked perfectly for my black tie event, I ended up wearing this one out with the girls the night before. Fit perfect except the shoulders kept falling off... I probably should have taped it or something but I have a really small frame and my shoulders are super narrow. Looked great though and got compliments.

Great evening dress. Amazing fit. Great cleavage and def gives a boost of enhancement in all the right places! Recommend wearing shape wear underneath for smoothness.

19th Wedding anniversary dinner.
Well the only thing I have to say is wow. Ordered this in small hoping and praying it would fit because it was the only size available for the date, and it was absolutely perfect. I'm 5'4" and the dress hit just at the top of my knees, which is a good length for me. Will rent this again.

Awesome Dress!
I really liked this dress. You cannot go wrong with Herve Leger. I have rented many of these dresses before but I really loved this one. The only thing I did not like was the sleeves do come down a bit. I think it could be from the dress being worn a lot. Also, you still have to wear a strapless bra with this dress because the V is very prominent and every bra I tried on with straps was visible.

Great for a date night or a girl's night.
Dress is amazing, was almost a perfect fit. I say almost because it was a little bit long because I am 5'2", but it still looked good. I was afraid it was going to be too big in the front because I am pretty petite, but it fit great. I loved it.

Gorgeous dress! Flattering and sexy...
The fit was very snug but held me in everywhere. I wore my regular bra and was completely comfortable all night. My only complaint was that the sleeves kept falling off my shoulders, and I kept having to readjust them. I felt sexy, and had cleavage for the first time in my life. Tons of compliments.

The dress hugged the curves in all the right places and stayed in place the entire night.

Love Herve
I really liked this dress. I would have given it a five but the fit was too big. It appeared to have been stretched out. The dress bunched up on the back because of the excess fabric. Normally and XS would not be too big on me, so I wouldn't size down on the herve dresses as they are normally very form fitting. Dress was just above the knee, so could be conservative enough for a formal affair if it fits right.

Beautiful, but order a size up.
Beautiful dress with ribbon/band detailing. Makes your "girls" look amazing, even if they're on the smaller side. I usually wear a 0 or XS. This dress is VERY form fitting and the XS was too tight on me. I think the small would have been perfect.

Loved this dress, although it was a little long for my petite frame. I ended up taping the hem of the dress, so the length hit just above my knee.

Sexy without being over the top.
I wore this dress for valentines day and really enjoyed it. My boyfriend said it was his favorite dress I've rented !!! The dress runs small (especially in the arms), and was less stretchy than I expected, but once I was zipped in it was actually quite comfortable! And no shape wear required! I ended up hemming it up about 4 inches (3 "bandages") with fashion tape to make it a little sexier, but had it not been valentines day I probably would have worn it down. I was concerned because I'm pretty busty (32DD), but it contained everything reasonably well even without a bra! The one con to this dress is that if you sit for and extended period of time it starts making your backside pretty painful because of the amount of texture in the fabric. Over all I loved the dress, and plan on renting many more from this designer. If an occasion arises I would certainly rent this dress again!

Absolutely LOVED my first experience with RTR! Compliments all night about the look of the dress.
Had to get zipped into the dress but once it was, the fit was gorgeous! The shoulders definitely tend to slip off your shoulders but doesn't really detract from the look of the dress. I did wear a bra, although I think I could have gotten away without one, and just slipped my bra straps down off my shoulders so you still couldn't see them when the dress slipped off my shoulders. The small fit perfectly once I was all zipped in and I typically wear either a size two or four. The style is very slimming and holds you in great! Amazing first experience with this company, of many more to come!

It was a bar mitzvah for my boyfriend's childhood friend's son, we danced the night away!!!
I underestimated the size of my boobs!!! The dress fit like a glove!! It was amazing, a little tight on the breast and arm areas, also small and tight on the bottom, when walking smaller steps were a must. I loved the dress and would totally rent it again, Although this time I would want both the small and x-small to compare side by side!

Hugged me in all the right places
I wish I had a full picture of me... This dress hugged me right without feeling tight anywhere. It was very flattering and accentuated my curves. It was a little longer than I wanted but that's probably because I'm so short...

Ouch!
Ran SO SMALL. Left marks on my arms at each "bandage", completely uncomfortable. Had I gone two sizes up, maybe it would have worked. Definitely sucks you in, but the seams alllll the way down the dress were not so pleasant.

Such a flattering dress
This dress fit like a glove and the seams and fabric pattern really worked to accentuate my figure. The slightly off the shoulder neckline was seductive yet classy making this a real show stopping lbd. However, I wasn't able to wear the dress because I was unable to go to the original event I rented the dress for, and it was too dressy to wear for the more casual get together I ended up going to that weekend. Regardless, I would rent this dress again, I honestly wish I didn't have to send it back!

Great experience! Loved the dress. The directions as to how to return the dress made it so easy!
The dress was a little tight but breathable. I wanted it tight to hold me in and it did just that! I have nothing but great things to say about my first Rent The Runway experience. The dress was beautiful and in brand new condition, I wish I could have kept it! Overall I would give RTR a 20 on a 10 scale. I do not know why anybody would not take advantage of this GREAT service! RTR made a very loyal customer out of me! I will definitely be using RTR in the near future.

Best. Dress. Ever.
I love love love this dress. It is incredibly flattering, sexy, yet sophisticated. It pained me to return it. I wore an XS because that is all they had in stock, and while it fit and did not look too tight, there was no way I could have zipped it up without assistance from my husband. A small would have been perfect, but the dress was still comfortable. I was able to wear a normal bra with the dress. I can't wait to rent it again!

Didn't get to wear it. Was too small.
I loove Hervé Léger! But this dress ran too small. I've always been an XS in HL dresses, but I couldn't get the sleeves over my shoulders or for it to zip up all the way. I'm 32" around my bust and I weigh 110 lbs, so I'm pretty small. RTR didn't have the small available as a back up. An extra star for crediting me back my money! Only time I've had an issue with a dress.

As usual, the Herve is sexy and show stopping... But the dress is getting worn out.
Both my friends and I have rented Herve dresses from RTR many times and have never been disappointed... But I have to say that this must be one POPULAR dress because the bandage material is definitely starting to wear. It's slight, but something I felt like you could notice when standing close to me. Either way - as usual I felt like a stunner, the boyfriend LOVED it, and it photographs great. Can't stress the importance of getting a Small even though I wear a Medium in everything else. It's supposed to be that tight and hug your body ladies!

Sexy and chic
I rented this for a bar mitzvah that was "club" attire. I was not sure if it was country club attire or Club "dance club" attire. I turned out to be dance club attire and this dress was perfect. I feel like it could of fit either way with the right accessories. the sleeves were a little big and during the night the dress got more loose but I felt so sexy and chic in this outfit and it was an overall great fit!

I rented this Herve Leger to see if I really wanted to purchase one or not. It's super form fitting, obviously, but not obscene or trashy. Very elegant and I got nothing but compliments on it all night long!
