This dress was perfect for date night.

This dress has a double zipper which makes it easy to move in. I would recommend spanx because it's so form fitting. I wear a strapless bra with an extender due to the low cut back. Great dress!

Phenomenal Dress!

The style of this bandage dress accentuates all of your curves from shoulders to calves. It is definitely a show stopper. I was unable to wear dress because the party attire was switched to casual. I will rent this dress again & I was sorry that I couldn't wear it.

Incredible dress for a formal night

I was skeptical to try this dress since I know they are supposed to run small and squeeze you in, but actually I was very comfortable (once I got it zipped up!) and I got compliments all night. Definitely worth the rental

Gorgeous! Can't say enough good things about this stunning dress!

This dress was sent to me when my original rental wasn't returned on time. This dress is amazing!! The colors are gorgeous and the fit is exquisite, true to Herve Leger for sure! I wore this to a Kentucky Derby party and it was perfect for the event. I typically go between a S and M in Herve but this S was perfect. Holds everything in place! I wore a regular strapless bra and it was fine. Would definitely rent again in a second!

Amazing dress with zipper from God

I was very nervous about the length of this dress so I ordered hem tape. I taped up the bottom two beige bandages and it hit perfectly just above my knee. GET HEM TAPE. This turned it from pretty to smoking classy hot. I had never used hem tape before but I put practically the whole box on it and it held up through dancing all night. The zipper on this dress is amazing. Turned my rear end from a flat pancake to a round bubble butt. It's very comfortable and you can adjust he zipper in the back to make it easier to walk. It photographs really well so when I took it out of the bag I was initially disappointed. It wasn't as vibrant in person as I thought it would be. But when evening fell it was gorgeous. All the guys loved it. It caused quite a stir. It looked even better in person. Made my figure look insane. I will definitely rent it again.

Size up!!

I usually wear 0/XS in all my rentals and this was extremely tight. I ended up wearing the other backup style in a small, same designer. I absolutely loved this dress but with it being a little longer I could hardly move my legs to walk. The low back made it difficult to wear a bra and the tight fabric flattens you out. The color and cut were amazing and would be perfect for an event where you don't have to move much.

Pretty dress but not my favorite

Really pretty dress - colors and ombré effect are gorgeous! However, it was so tight, a little too fitted in my opinion, and made me feel self conscious about it not looking flattering....Not my favorite herve dress.

Beautiful dress

I originally rented another Herve that was very similar but when my arrival date came the dress was either not returned or returned in poor condition so they sent me this. They also didn't have an XS so I wore the small. When I put it on it fit great. By the time we drove to the wedding it had stretched a little and I kept having to adjust the sleeves. All in all I loved the dress though. The color is beautiful and the fabric is amazing. I read reviews that some felt they couldn't walk because of how tight it was on the bottom. Conveniently there's a 2 way zipper. I unzipped it about an inch, if that, and it was perfect. I wouldn't definitely recommend this dress. I will order a similar dress in the future but in the smaller size.

Wedding show stopper.. Did I upstage the bride?.. Maybe

Absolutely loved this dress, it fit in all the right places and the compliments were non stop all night!! I paired this with a silver pump that matched perfectly and minimal accessories, since I didn't want to take away from the dress. I also wore my hair up to show off the plunging back. I was able to wear a normal bra and with a little double sided tape everything stayed in place.

Colorful and Elegant

HL dresses always have a flattering fit. This one didn't disappoint - the colors even add the perfect accent to your figure. I am short so the length hit well below the knee. A little stiff to dance in, but a great outfit all around! So many compliments!

It actually fitting!

I fell in love with this dress and HAD to have it. I would have ordered a Sm/M. The only size available... XS! I stubbornly ordered it anyway and yes it was snug. The fabric is giving and I would've been more comfortable in a M I'm sure but it worked. Thank goodness for the brilliant zipper. I received dozens of compliments. Loved my first RTR experience. Can't wait to order again!

The most amazing dress. So flattering...I received so many compliments!

Fit was perfect, I would definitely say true to size. Beware if you're curvy in your hips, it can get a little tight until you zip it over your bum.

Beautiful, many compliments!

I purchased some hem tape and hemmed up the bottom two layers, I felt with my height that the dress was originally too long. You could see where I had used the hem tape through the dress which may have been my own fault as I was in a rush! I also had to use sticky tape to keep the sleeves placed on my shoulders, otherwise they would fall down. Was gorgeous on and comfortable!

Because of the quality and thickness of the dress, it complements your figure (breasts,hips and butt) The dress color is very unique and attractive.

This dress was amazing!! I got so many compliments on in and felt fabulous!

The dress is a little long and super tight so you need to unzip the bottom of the back zipper past your knees to be able to walk and dance. The only bad thing is that there's tags that hang out when you do that. Just make sure to pin the tags back and you'll be good to go!

I love your dress!!!

I wore this for a bridal shower (I was the host). And everyone loved the dress! I am a curvy 6, so the Herve Leger fabric is amazing- it's just right enough to help you feel secure in all the right places. Great dress, body con, but past the knees in length and high enough neckline that it doesn't come across as too sexy (don't get me wrong, it's definitely sexy... Just not too sexy ha!)

Fit really well - hugged in all the right places - but was slightly large through the shoulders. I got 4 or 5 compliments within five minutes of arriving. Huge fan of this dress!

Received compliments all night long. Belle of the Ball.

Like every bandage dress, it fit like a glove. The sleeves tend to slide down so I was struggling to keep them in place all night. I felt like a million bucks! Sad to send the dress back! After dealing with issues with another dress, My stylist Christian ( hands down the best), overnighted this dress to my hotel in another city. RTR has excellent customer service! Other companies should adopt RTR's customer service policies!

I was slaying it in this sexy dress!

Perfect dress for any body type. I don't have a full chest so I wish I opted for the X-small since the top fell down at my arms which meant I was fixing it every now and then. Amazing dress to say the least. Sexy and slim fit.

Amazing dress compliments for days.

Complete strangers noted my dress and complimented me later in the week when I met them. So clearly the dress was notable! It was tighter than I would normally do but really is an amazingly flattering dress. Can't wait to rent it again. I'm going to try all them! Worth the splurge.

Amazing if you're tall and super curvy

I was nervous about the small, since my hips are about 44" at the largest part, while my waist is 24"... I'm also 5'11 so nothing EVER seems to fit correctly. This dress fit perfectly though, and was so fun, flattering and comfortable the entire evening. I HIGHLY recommend this dress. Side note: RTR customer service is amazing.

This dress looks and feels amazing. I got compliments all night long, specially from my husband

Size S was a bit small around the chest area. Size M was a tiny bit lose but was not obvious. I ended up wearing size M and it worked just fine. It's a very comfortable dress.

Lots of compliments, fit like a glove

I am about 135lbs right now. Just had a baby 5 months ago and this dress sucked everything in and made me feel great! I wore a small. My big butt fit in it and I was grateful! :) Lots of compliments. Just unzipped the zipper on the bottom a little to have more walking comfort. I loved this dress! Wish I could own it!

This dress is EVERYTHING!

This dress is amazing. It is sexy yet still classy. The length is one of the reasons. It hit just below the knee and I'm 5'8" it hugs perfectly creating a spanx type effect. The top was not as form fitting as the rest of the dress so it may gape if you have a really small chest. It was also really comfortable. The ombré really makes this dress stand out. The compliments for this dress were non-stop. I couldn't have loved it more!

RTR got me the dress a day early, it was clean and ready to wear!

The dress is a little longer than I expected, but it fit like a glove! I received complements left and right. The only other con I found with the dress was, it began to loosen up the longer I wore it. At the end of the wedding, the straps were falling off my shoulder. Other than that it was absolutely gorgeous! Thanks RTR!

Great fit! Loved the color!

Dress fits great. I loved that it unzipped all the way down, so it was much easier to get in and out of compared to other Herve Leger dresses. It was sexy but the length made it appropriate for a wedding. Loved the back. Wore a regular bra with a band extender to hide the back strap and had no issues all night.

Perfect for any coloring.

Very thick material and high quality. The colors are gorgeous. May work best on taller girls since it does seem long. Strapless bra works but may need to be pinned in back bc scoop is low. Really enjoyed dress!
