Good timing. Convenient.

I got so many compliments on my dress!!

Went to a charity event and I ordered a small and xsmall. I am 5"6 and 125lbs and the small was perfect. It's a tight dress but it's supposed to be! Can not wear a bra so I got the stick on cups

Not a dress for the shy.

This dress attracts attention. It is of course completely form fitting, typical Leger. The hot pink is something else! There is no hiding. But b/c it's clearly well made, it's not tacky or attention-getting in an embarrassing way. My only fit quibble is that the neck opening is quite wide. I have broad shoulders and found myself pulling the strap back up on one side or the other periodically throughout the night. But it was fine, and I had fun with the dress. I was surprised how far below my knees this dress came, but it was quite flattering, which I would not have expected.

Was not able to wear

This dress isn't made for short girls. I love herve leger but the compression didn't work on my body- the part of the dress that is supposed to suck in the love handles actually fell below my love handles- pushing them out even more. It was too bad because the dress was gorgeous.

Great dress with a pop of color!

I wore this dress to a friend's wedding and absolutely loved it! If you've never worn an Herve Leger dress before, be prepared because it is tight! Herve dresses are meant to be form fitting and to hug your curves and this dress was no exception. I loved the color of this dress since it is a bright fushia/pink that really stands out. It would be perfect for a summer wedding or cocktail party. The dress has an exposed gold zipper that runs the length of the back with a zipper on each end -- I was a bit worried given how tight the dress is that the zipper was going to go running on me and I would suddenly find myself exposed while busting a move on the dance floor at the wedding... but rest assured, all was good and the zipper didn't budge all night (whew!). I was also worried about wearing this dress to a wedding since I am tall (5'10") - the hem hit just above my knee so it was very tasteful and appropriate, even with heels. I received countless compliments all night long and would absolutely order it again.... now I wish I owned it!

Dress was amazing. Very form fitting, not very forgiving but just enough stretch to accentuate curves!

Amazing color and length...

Amazing fuchsia color with gold zipper. Great longer length for the more mature woman's preference. Typical Herve, being ultra tight and body hugging which I love. Neckline was flattering for large busted women. Front scoop instead of the normal V kept things classy and appropriate for the more self conscious. I ended up falling in love with a different dress while the the RTR store in Vegas, but I'm keeping this dress in mind for a future rental again.

So many compliments!

I LOVED this dress! I wore it to a work related party in South America and got non-stop compliments! It is obviously very figure flattering, but is not too much in that it does not have a low neckline and the length of the dress went down to the knees. It had that perfect balance of being a bit sexy while still being appropriate for a work-ish event. I plan to rent it again soon!

Fabulous fit, so flattering

I love this dress! It was super form fitting, but so comfortable. It was perfect for the wedding I attended, and I felt like a movie star in it. Two must-haves for wearing this dress is a strapless bra and spanx,, to really give it it's full potential. I followed the style notes in the description and kept the jewelry at a minimum, renting a stack of bangles and leaving it at that. I am 5'7" and it hit just below the knee, for shorter girls I think it may be too long.

Amazing color and hugs your curves!

Amazing and snug, sexy fit and amazing color. Got complimented all evening. Fabric was soft and tight in a good way. A little tight on the lower legs when walking, but walk slow and its not an issue.

Beautiful dress paired by an amazing necklace

As I was expecting the dress was snug! I wore a pair of spanks underneath. The bra situation was a little odd, wore a regular one, but could have used fashion take to keep the straps together with the dress seeing that the shoulders were wide and hard to keep the straps together. Aside from that I absolutely loved it and felt stunning!

Great dress great color

Loved the dress. Immediately got comments on the great color. It is a bit long - I'm 5'5". I should have used hem tape to hem it but didn't have time. I wore a strapless bra with it which worked well. As other reviewers stated, the shoulders are big and slide off a bit - and I have very broad shoulders. Wore with gold sandals which was a nice change from black.

Pretty in Pink!

This is an absolutely GORGEOUS Dress. I’m a twin mom & never feel glamorous. This was my 1st rental and – YES “Rent the Runway” – YOU are a brilliant concept. When the box arrived, I could hardly wait to zip into this stunning dress. I felt like Cinderella or Elizabeth Hurley from the Royals -- all night long! Complements were by the dozens. What a showstopper! Dress fits true to size (I'm a 4/6, 5'9, 135lbs). Dress is very tight -- plan your undergarments accordingly OR dare to bare. Looks perfect with OPI's Strawberry Margarita nail polish & nude pumps peep-toe pumps. Perfect for a wedding, black tie event etc. Color is vibrant -- really stands out! And I must confess it was hard to “Returning the Runway” this morning!!

Stunning dress, loved the color, so many compliments. If you are curvy, order a size up!

Very flattering on an hourglass figure. I wore spanx to ensure a smooth appearance. I have long legs (about 33" inseam) so the length was nice on me, but would caution it may run long on those with shorter legs. Gold zipper in back looked great with gold earrings and bracelet.

STYLIST REVIEW

I. Loved. This. Dress.!!!! It definitely runs small and tight but due to the material it supposed to be that way. If you size up you can wear spanx underneath but since I didn't there was no way spanx would have fit but I felt perfectly fine without it! It definitely holds you in and i felt like it accentuated my curves in the best way although it was a little restricting! I was able to wear a regular strapless bra I just made sure to pull it down in the back and I had no problem with it showing. The length made it very classy as well. Would definitely rent an Herve again

Gorgeous Summer Dress

I wouldn't recommend sizing up on this one. Once zipped it really molds to your body. Shoulder straps kept falling and your step will be slightly constricted but if you want to make a statement go for it! It's a gorgeous dress!

Had he best pink dress at a 'pink and gold' themed wedding! Loved this dress; wish I could keep!

I am quite tall and bosomy with hourglass figure and this fit like a dream. Used special commando undies so no VPL and a strapless bra as I wore more off the shoulder. Super comply and very flattering!

Great color and fit

Wore this to a summer wedding in NY. The fabric is think but stretches. The color is really nice and stands out. I could not wear a bra underneath due to the back being so low cut but didn't need one since the dress holds everything in place. Would definitely rent again.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear the dress to my niece's Sweet Sixteen party

I found the fit to be a bit small in the hips. I also ordered an additional size up in a large which fit great. However the top portion was a bit to large for my bust line. I normally wear between a size 4-6.

Rented this for my friend's outdoor wedding and got so many compliments (especially from my date!) This was my first time in Herve and it won't be the last! The small fit perfectly and was so flattering! Thanks again to the RTR on Union Square for the styling!

Classy yet subtly sexy

I had 4 dresses to choose from, 3 were Herve Leger from RTR and one was a dress I purchased myself. My mom insisted that I wear this for my master's graduation and a few friends agreed as well, so I trusted their opinion and went with it. I'm so glad I did! It photographed amazing in pictures and I received compliments from the moment I got out of the car. It's a very tight fit, you might need another person to help you zip it up. I was worried about the fit at the shoulders since it was a little loose, but if you wear your hair down, it shouldn't be a problem. Wear thongs that are not very tight on you as they will dig into the skin and the dress will emphasize the gap. I rented it for an extra week for my vacation but unfortunately didn't get a chance to wear it there again. This dress is absolutely stunning. I love the length, it brushed below my knees and didn't slide up at all. I wish I could have kept it. I took so many pictures of the dress alone, I was obsessed!

Loved the dress!

I received a med & large.The large fit well so I never bothered to try on the med.Straps were little loose. I'm 5'7" and 155lbs, two small boys and it sucked everything in. It's a little difficult to walk. But otherwise very comfortable dress! I loved it, received many compliments. I will Definetly rent the runway again! I'll probably never buy another dress again, only rent! Such an easy process!!

RTR saves the day!

I had not even selected this dress but rather another Herve in the same color. RTR had contacted me the day before I was supposed to receive the other dress to let me know that the small in the first dress was unavailable due to damage. Slightly stressed, I was SO relieved to know that a stylist had chosen this dress for me. When it arrived, I was thrilled. This dress is a showstopper! Although it IS tight ( it's a bandage dress so it's supposed to be) it's the perfect mix of classy and sexy. My boyfriend said I looked like a million bucks. Thank you RTR for saving the day!

Va-va-Voom!!!

This dress, along with several others, was sent to me when the dress I ordered for a wedding became unavailable. I tend to size up with Herve dresses and got this in a large. This is a very sexy dress and hugged all of my curves in all the right places. If you are on the shorter side, this will fall below the knee and was tea length on me. The neck was loose, like other reviews stated, but I was able to adjust the dress enough to give it a boat neck look. I ultimately didn't choose this as it would have been too formal for the wedding venue. I do have a wedding coming up in a few months and I am renting this dress to wear. So pleased with RTR's customer service- I love that I was sent multiple alternative options when my original selections were not available.

Sexy yet classy!

Originally tried on the large and ordered the medium just in case! Boy was I happy! Medium fit like a glove! Tucked in all the right places! I used temporary hem tape to shorten the dress to just above my knee! Did just the trick! I wore it with the Showstopper earrings, also available on RTR!

Gorgeous fit! Holds you in, in all the right places

Beautiful dress, it's super heavy, but the thickness of the material really sucks you in. (I have 3 young children) I wore strapless bra and no lines showed. The only near impossible thing was going to the bathroom! Need to completely take dress off, there's no give to pull it up, so be prepare to spend good amount of time in bathroom. Overall beautiful classy dress perfect for summer wedding

Color photographed like a dream.

I would select one size smaller as the bandage material really sucks you in. It did stretch a bit over the course of the evening. Also, for us shorter ladies, the length is a bit long and unable to be temporarily hemmed due to the zipper. I had to use fashion tape to hold down the shoulders which were a tad wide.

Pretty

This was a backup dress because my original dress was no longer available. It was pretty and the smaller ribbing around the waist was very flattering. I noticed that the Hervé Léger dress seemed longer than others that I had rented which made it a little difficult to walk. All and all it was a good backup and I would rent again.

Runs Small for Herve, Smashed my Large Natural Breasts

Its Herve, so I can't say too many bad things but this cut is not particularly good for large breasted women - it actually hurt my chest when I put it on. I always wear a M in Herve so I ordered M, but the chest area was just not accommodating for me so I couldn't wear it. Beautiful color, the fabric is amazing and its flattering on the rest of the body...I just couldn't handle the smashing pancake boob long enough to wear the dress anywhere.

Beautiful color! Perfect for a social event!

Dress fits like a glove! I ordered a small and the top part around the collar was slightly loose. I think an XS would have fit a little better. However, I received tons of compliments and the color is amazing. The zipper in the back allows you to adjust the bottom fit. I hated sending it back!

Perfection for a lady

Wore for my boyfriend's birthday dinner/party. This dress fit perfectly. Held everything in, nice and tight... Compliments all night... He couldn't keep his hands off of me. I would definitely rent this again and again and again. I also rented the medium but it was loose on top and it just didn't hold everything in as the small.

I love this dress! Flattering and great color! The top did come down a little. If I rented again I would use fabric tape along the bust.
