stunning color and fit, but wore a long dress instead

tight like a typical herve should be. Im 5'9" 34D and it fit like a glove, tightest in my bust/back area. I ended up wearing a long dress instead to the wedding, but this will def be on my short list for future cocktail dress events

Just didn't really fit my bod type. It was too tight in the waist and the skirt part was too stiff to comfortably walk in

Gorgeous dress + color + fit: do it!

Gorgeous dress: loved the thickness of the material. As the other reviews attested to, it smoothed in all the right places. I have a smaller waist, relative to my lower half, so finding something that fits both areas can be hard, but this was perfect. Also: I'm not normally a "pink person" but this color was stunning! Would definitely recommend

Runs very small. Couldn't fit into the XS or S. (My normal sizes.) Didn't wear.

I rented the XS and S as backup dresses- Beautiful fabric & cut, but both were way too small and I didn't wear either. I'm 5'4" 115lbs and could not even begin to zip either of these up- I would go with a medium or even large next time!

Rehearsal dinner for Vegas wedding

I loved this dress on the site and thought it was perfect for the rehearsal dinner in Vegas. The length and color were great, but I struggled with the shoulders all night. They just kept falling down and wouldn't lay flat. I also had to wear a strapless bra, which I hate and didn't see coming. Also watch out for the lower zipper coming up! When I was trying it on at home I zipped it up a bit to give myself a bit more leg room to walk and after a few minutes it actually went all the way up my back! Thank god it was at home and not at the event. It's also a really heavy dress so wouldn't recommend in warm weather. And you'll definitely need spanks.

Ended up wearing backup dress, but would order again for another occasion

I ordered the XS and the M because the S was not available. I loved the XS, but the look was not professional enough for the event. Would order again if they had a S. Fit like spanx!

Sexy and classy

I typically hate wearing body con dresses, but challenged myself to get out of my comfort zone with this herve dress. I was in NYC on vacation and was able to try this dress on at the flagship store. I left the store still feeling a little unsure about it, but as soon as I put it on and got out I felt awesome. I'm pretty slender, but I love the way this dress accentuated the curves I *do* have. I typically wear a size 4 and rented a medium in this dress. It was slightly loose around the shoulders (easy to fix with tape) but very fitted from the belly down. Extremely tight, but not restrictive due to its stretch. Kind hard to walk in, but easily solved by unzipping a few inches at the bottom. Highly recommend this dress if you want to feel sexy and bold--just be ready for lots of attention!

Fantastic dress. My partner said he loved the fit s much he might buy me an herve

Happy with the dress. Thought I would need large but the medium fit well. May need special undergarments for low back and wide/off shoulder design

Did not wear the dress.

I think this dress may run true to size, but both dresses (M and L for a backup) were so stretched out at the bottom hem and neck area, it was hard to tell. I definitely did not wear either dress. It was a very big disappointment - first time that rent the runway's quality was way below par. Perhaps these dresses are not meant to be worn and reworn so many times.

I received so many compliments on this dress. It made me feel beautiful!

This dress is a body-hugging bandage dress and so is very form-fitting. I had to wear Spanx underneath to prevent panty lines. It is a very "notice me" dress, made even more so by the bright pink color. I am only 5'1" and thought it was a little ling for me-I wish it had been an inch or two shorter. Overall, it was an amazing dress for a special occasion.

I wore this dress to my son's graduate school graduation at Miami! It was absolutely stunning!

The dress was a medium - I am a 6/8 hour glass shape and it fit like a glove. The fabric was spectacular, I had no trouble walking in it and the back of this dress is just as great as the front. I loved everything about this dress and wore it for 2 hours around the house when it was delivered just because it was so fab :)

Someone I didn't know came to tell me I looked stunning!

Great dress. I am a 6 and I ordered a medium. It was a little loose on top but the bottom fit so perfectly I didn't mind. Wore a Spanx thing with a little bit of tummy control. Low in the back so I needed a strapless bra. Felt like a million dollars.

Great dress... vibrant color!

It's hard to go wrong with Herve. This dress was exactly as I expected from other photos and reviews. It's snug but flattering. I do want to mention that the dress is on the longer side. I'm not super tall, but I do have long legs so I liked the length...but I would image someone on the shorter end might feel that the dress hits them at a funny length. Overall good experience. I would rent it again if I needed to.

Stunning color and shape

Fits a little snug as was expected since it's a bandage dress. Did loosen a bit as the night wore on. Longer, past the knee, but form fitting and slimming and a beautiful, fun color! Tons of compliments!

Fits like a GLOVE. If anything, size up.

I'm a true 0 and got the XS- I needed help zipping it, but once it was on- it fit perfectly. Super flattering. It's a pretty long dress- I'm 5' 10' and it hit just above my knee... Probably not ideal for short girls!

Color popped!

Fit perfectly and was super comfortable! Hugged in all of the right places. Wearing any under garments was near impossible as dress is very tight and leaves no room. Otherwise, super easy to move around in and dance. Head turner.

Stunner!

This dress was sent to me as a backup and I was thrilled because I've always wanted to wear it! The medium was a bit large in the straps - I would have preferred a small, but I made it work with a sticky bra. You definitely have to have confidence to wear this dress but I loved it!

I wore this dress for a wedding.

Based on the reviews, I planned on wearing the Medium and got the Small as my backup. The small zipped but was a little tighter than I wanted. The medium fit very well at first but stretched out throughout the night as I danced.

Spectacular color. Sexy and sophisticated.

I usually wear a-lines, fit-and-flares, and wrap dresses. I decided to go out of my comfort zone and try a fitted dress. This was an alternate dress when my first choice (another Herve dress) became unavailable at the last minute. I have very narrow shoulders and fuller hips. Like some other reviewers said, this gaped at the neckline. It fit like a boatneck instead of flat like on the model. It also went below my knees, unlike the model. I wish I had fashion tape on-hand to hem it. I wore a strapless bra but had to pull it way down in the back. I tried it without a bra but didn't like how it looked. I marked the dress as "runs large." It ran large in my shoulder area but smaller in my hip area. I think it's because of my body type though. Medium was my back-up and I ended up wearing it instead of the small. The small felt a bit tight in the hips, and it had the same gaping at the neck. I figured I might as well be comfortable so I went with the medium. Overall, it was a very beautiful look. I'm glad I went for it. I recommend a backless bra and fashion tape, and you'll be good-to-go!

I am 5'1 32AA 100 lbs. This dress fit me to a T! This hugged all the right curves, accentuated my waist, and you can wear a low back bra. I love this dress! I would keep it if I could, it is so bombshell!

This dress is a showstopper!

This dress was my back up to my back up dress due to the dresses being damaged. RTR Customer service was great to work with. I'm so glad I got this Herve Leger instead. I'm very petite and smaller frame and this dress runs true to size. However the dress was a bit big on the top. It wasn't too noticeable because my hair covered it. I wore a strapless bra and shapewear. This dress hugs all your curves and made me look tall in pictures. I'm only 4'10"! I received compliments all night! Rent this dress!

Beautiful, forgiving dress.

It's a beautiful dress that is very forgiving and figure flattering. Like all HL's, its very tight but that acts like a built-in spanx. It was difficult for me to hide my bra though, and I remember people helping me do so. I would get it again if my arms were that small now (have gained 10 lbs).

Brilliant color! You will certainly get noticed!

The dress fit like a glove and hits in all the right places. I am rather large at the bottom so while the M fit perfectly on top, I found the hip area to be too snug, so I opted for the L, which was a little loose on top but perfect fit at the hip area, and made me more comfortable. I wore to an art gallery opening of friends, and chose a color that I see used in his artwork quite frequently. This dress fit the bill to a T! Highly recommended!

The back is GORGEOUS!

I'm usually a 4 or small and I luckily had the medium backup. Holds you in tight. You can feel the quality of the material. Classy and glamorous. Many compliments. I love love loved it! I did not want to send this dress back. Super fun zipper detail in back allows you to actually be able to walk and dance. Comfortable to top it all off. Highly recommend.

SUPER SMALL!

Ordered the medium based upon recommendation from RTR agent. It was way too tight. The back scoops extremely low so no way you can wear a bra with it. Pretty dress but you should go up 2 sizes, and it's more appropriate for a night out or wedding.

First Herve leger dress - won't be the last.

Very form fitting but very flattering, even on these hips! Compliments all night, but be ready for attention in this dress. Very bright pink. Kind of off the shoulder - I have broad shoulders and towards the end of the night the cap sleeves tended to slip a bit. I'd rent it again in a heartbeat.
