I put on the dress and it fit like a glove. I received so many compliments at the holiday part too!

Great fabric, kept its shape and it felt like it had built in spanx. The colors also made me look like I had an hourglass figure. #thatdress #pureglam #didnotwanttotakeitoff

Stood out on New Years Eve by ditching sparkle for class!

Gotta love a Herve! This dress hugged every curve perfectly AND comfortably. I could breathe, eat and dance all while looking sexy yet classy. The length was a touch long for a petite girl, but it really didn't bother me. Such a fun dress to wear and I loved being told I looked like a Bond girl all night long!

Perfect fit and style for the occasion.

It runs true to size or a big big? I usually almost always wear a 4 but sometimes can wear a 2 as I am not busty and kind of tall. The medium was big on me. The small fit perfect... Perhaps an XS would of fit too but maybe a bit too tight. It was a day time horse racing event and it was dressy and classy enough with a little sex appeal! Got complimented all day! Can't beat the price!

Great pop of color for winter!!

This was a great dress! Very comfortable and fit true to size, except the arms which were very tight, causing me to wear the medium instead of the small. The dress was also a little long (hit below the knee on my 5'2" frame) but was super easy to tape up!

Show stopper dress, it was slimming and colors were gorgeous

Wore spanx to smooth everything underneath. It was tight but did not ride up and was sexy and sophisticated

Perfect balance of fun sexy and wedding appropriate

This dress was perfect for a summer wedding. I was able to wear a strapless bra and didn't have to readjust all night due to the fit. Only this was it had a noticeable pull/stripe going right down the middle. It was obvious someone tried a little to hard to fit in this dress. I tried getting a replacement but it wasn't available and the other dresses I rented didn't work. Im glad I wore it because I got compliments all night.

The dress fit fantastically and my fiancé said it was his favorite dress yet. It was true to size and the fabric was shaping yet comfortable. Customer service during the rental process was amazing as always.

The colors of this dress is amazing, fits like a glove and compliments all the right places

Wore this to a bridal shower, the colors popped. I normally wear a medium but the medium came back to the RTR damaged so they let me choose two more back up dresses free of charge! I thankfully fit into the small Herve dress! I will def rent this dress again!

Great dress great deal!

The dress is tight and heavy, but still rather comfortable. I was worried because I couldn't order a medium, but I don't think I would have liked the longer length of a larger size, anyway. I found a small hole in the front of the dress, but it was very difficult to see it when the dress was on. Wore it with spanx and a strapless bra. It required occasional pulling down and twisting around to keep the bands and zipper straight. I received plenty of compliments and was sad to have to return this dress! I will not hesitate to rent a Herve again!

Not made for pear-shapes

I loved the length, colors and the shoulders. Only the XS was available when I ordered a month before my event. I knew that would be stretching it. Looked nice enough from the waist up but across the hips each fabric band acted like a rubber band creating rolls that were not pleasant. Maybe a small would've worked but I 'm not even sure. I wore the other HL dress I'd rented, Crimson Sunset, instead which fit better (likely because of not being the bandage style).

Gorgeous dress but didn't get to wear

This dress's color is fantastic but I wasn't a fan of how much it rippled on the top and bottom, it looked too tight :/ Not sure why the bandages on the model didn't look the same but I'd definitely consider renting the dress again in a size Medium

Such a comfortable and flattering dress!

This dress is very tight fitting, but it gives a great shape & the clots are place perfectly! I felt wonderful in it and loved wearing it. The one con is that I was hot in it most of the night, but that could have been because I was carrying my 1 year old around all evening plus it was humid....the fabric is pretty heavy though.

Stunning dress!

I wore this dress to my sister's graduation party. Since it is such a tight fitting dress I needed my boyfriend to help me zip the back up. I received compliments during the party about the dress and felt like a star in it the whole night. The off the shoulder part of the dress makes it sexy and the ombré effect is beautiful.

sucks in everything!

being that i wear a 6, i was a bit nervous renting the small but the medium was damaged by the last renter and RTR notified me they couldnt send it out. I picked out another herve leger M dress, but it ended up being actually tighter on me then this one! I ended up wearing this in the S.. i think maybe because it was stretched out by other wearers, and the M in the other herve leger had not been worn yet (or so it seemed-- brand new). this sucked everything in. got tons of compliments and loved the curve hugging it did!!!!!!!

Was so excited to wear!!

Gorgeous dress, amazing quality. Fabric is a bit thick/heavy but makes the dress sooo flattering on the body! This was a backup dress I was sent because the dress I ordered had to be canceled. I'd say this dress runs small because in the picture on here the fabric along the arms is hanging off the model, whereas when I tried on the dress, it was straight along my arms, hugging them just like the rest of the dress fit my body. Still very nice, just wanted to note it because I'm a size 6/8 but have wider arms, so it was a tighter fit than I would usually prefer. Would be a beautiful choice of attire for any occasion.

Loved, loved, loved this dress! My boyfriend kept telling me to buy it!

I felt like a million bucks in this dress. (I did have to go carbless for a few days, as this dress tells no lies) I am a size 2-4, and the small fit well. I felt sexy, yet classy with the sleeves and the hem at knee length. I highly recommend renting this!

I'm almost exactly your size (but plus 4 lbs). Did you find you had to wear spanx with this?

Vivid blue color and classy yet sexy cut

This dress was a stunner! The color was so vivid and flattering and the fit is class yet sexy. Highly recommend. I normally wear a 2 and XS in HL, but this dress felt a bit tight. It still worked, but was tighter than ideal. This coudl've simply been because it was brand new when I received it and needed to be worn to stretch out a bit. Would absolutely rent this dress again.

Incredible dress that makes any woman look good!

This dress is amazing. It fit perfectly. I will add that if you have a large chest you may have problems zipping any size of the dress once you get above your waist. I didn't have anyone to assist me, so it was impossible! lol I ended up wearing the large because I had to zip it and pull it on over my head! The only thing is the large was a little too big in the shoulders. Despite all that, it look so fantastic on. I received compliments on the dress all night long. I'm convinced this dress would make any body size or type look amazing. Love, love, love this dress.

My favorite rental yet!

Great dress. I rented the large and it came with the tags still on! I literally needed to recruit backup to help me zip it up, but once it was on it felt great. I got so many compliments and the dark ombre around the waist is extremely flattering. In other HL dresses that have had more wear, I have been able to get away with a medium due to the dress being a little stretched out. I would recommend sizing up in this one considering it is still fairly new to RTR.

The compliments would NOT stop

I wore this to a work party in NYC, and I almost skipped it because it is was so tight but I went for it and could not be more happy. I couldn't walk more than 10 steps without getting a question about the dress, or receiving a compliment. I actually got photographed for TWO event/fashion blogs. Seriously, people will look at you when you wear this, men and women alike. I would be careful if you are a size 10, I am a size 8 (at my hips), and I just managed to shimmy into it. The medium was crazy tight. Also, I am short, and I LOVED that it went below the knees, because when a dress is this eye-catching, you don't need to be showing lots of leg. I coupled with gold shoes and a gold purse, and it was perfect.

Sexy!

wore this for a bachelorette party! Beautiful dress and great colors. I love how the colors are darker in the middle so it makes your wait look slimmer. This is a typical Herve dress and runs small and sucks you in. I thought it would be too long from the look on the model, but it fit my 5'2" frame fine. I also have a large bust but got away without wearing a bra. Would totally rent again!!

I wore this for my 50th b-day party, I have never received more compliments on a dress! I usually wear a size small, this dress is very tight, but comfortable. I was happy to have the medium on hand and wore it. The fabric is thick and high quality, the shades of blue are beautiful. It wont disappoint.

AMAZING dress!! Hubby didn't want me to send it back & I received a ton of compliments!

I ordered the S & M sizes. From some of the other reviews I thought I might fit the S, but no. The M was tight. But worked! I thought for sure I'd have to have Spanx under it but it really acted like spanx all on its own. I didn't have room for anything more than a thong underneath. No bra, but I'm small. Wish I had slightly broader shoulders. It did slide down my shoulders a bit. You could tell by the way it's cut that it's really supposed to be a wide boatneck that just sits on the edge of your shoulders. Someone not as narrow up top will fit it better. That being said - I looked and felt amazing! My husband loved it, I loved it, and so did everyone else. I posted my photo on Facebook and it blew up with compliments, Will definitely rent this one again, or another Herve Leger dress. The colors were right, the styling. I liked that it hit at the knee too.

Classy dress for Classless Vegas

I'll be honest - this dress is great - once it's on. Getting it on is a bit of struggle if you have a derriere. When my man zipped me up, he initially said...."I don't think this is gonna work" haha thanks babe! But it did, and it looked amazing. I forgot my spanx which would have made it easier to suck in my stomach the entire time ;) Another RTR win!

Body hugging, quality, comfort.

Normally a small, I was thankful to have the medium, which was longer in length than I would of liked, but ultimately more comfortable in size overall. The sleeves do run a little snug, but my arms adjusted to it and never noticed it during the night. I could of used some tape to keep the sleeves in place and the neckline flat, but I did without. I was so impressed with the fabric quality. You could already tell just taking it out of the box at how heavy it was. The stretch in this dress was just enough to flatter any body type. Color was as expected. This was my first rental, and I will definitely do it again. Received many compliments!

did not fit :(

Usually, I'm a 6, and if things don't fit, it's in the booty. But this one is a bit stretchy, and fit perfectly in both the hips and booty, and also in the waist. The problem was that it did not fit around my bust and arms well enough to zip up! Sadness, because my event is only an hour away, and RTR had no backup size available. At least Molly H was very helpful in the live chat feature to get me set up with a Return For Fit Request. It's a gorgeous dress which I will most definitely rent again in the future, but will have to wait til the Medium is available.

This dress will make you unleash your inner VIXEN!

Ladies, this dress will SUCK. YOU. IN and accentuate your assets. I am obsessed with Herve Leger and his dresses...he's a true miracle worker. I wore Spanx underneath to smooth out my love rolls (bleh) but needless to say, EVERYONE loved my dress and I received compliments all night! I got a LARGE as my backup size and thank goodness because that's the size I wore. I recommend wearing spanx and perhaps a waist cincher underneath to really amplify your natural curves. If you get this dress, be prepared...because you'll feel uber FAB & FIERCE in it. Now if only it came in other colors...

SIZE UP!

I'm usually a solid 4 in dresses, sometimes a 6 if they are tight on the bottom compared to the top. I ordered this dress in Small and felt like I was wearing an incredibly tight rubberband. The material is very thick so once I zipped up (with lots of help) the dress actually looked pretty awesome. But I couldn't separate my legs enough to walk :( Unfortunately there were no mediums available to overnight so I had to go with my standard LBD. It's a great dress but definitely one to size up.

Words cannot describe how amazing this dress is! Perfect for competing in the Miss Vermont Pageant!

I rented for the first time from Rent the Runway for all of my pageant attire for the Miss Vermont Scholarship Organization Pageant that was this past Saturday. This dress received TONS of compliments and is extremely figure-flattering (it will make your waist look extremely slender!). The dress was a little snug and the material is thick, but I would highly recommend this dress to anyone for an event.

the medium was not available so I was hopeful that the small would work. Not the case!
