Absolutely gorgeous dress!
Got compliments all night on this dress! Beautiful vibrant color and very form fitting. The dress is a true bright pink but looks less coral than it does in the picture. I didn't wear spanx but did have to wear a low back bra. A nu bra would probably be a better choice because I had to keep pulling the back of the dress up throughout the night to cover the back of the bra. I'm 5'4" and the dress was still pretty long even with four inch heels but I liked the look of a slight train/mermaid bottom. Overall an amazing dress! Wish I could have kept it! I'll definitely be renting Herve Leger again.

Very flattering
This dress is a stunner. I received tons of compliments! Its true to Herve Leger fashion, very form fitting. Even though its a tight fit the dress is extremely comfortable and doesn't feel heavy. I highly recommend this dress is you're looking for something sexy yet still sophisticated.

Wowza Jessica Rabbit
The color online looks like watermelon. In person it is fuchsia/hot pink. Beautiful. Just beautiful. This was my back up dress so I decided not to wear it because it wasn't appropriate for the event. I could easily wear a bra with it and hide the straps with fashion tape. I had on 3.5" heels and it was just above the ground. If you are any taller and plan to wear heels, this will be too short on you. I'm a 32DD and typically wear a size 6. Some HL dresses I can wear a small but most a medium is more comfortable.

Looked beautiful! Im a 34d and cannot go braless so was wondering what kind of bra you were able to wear with this?

The perfect color. I wore this dress to a gala in NYC. It was perfect- I got comments all night. I would love to wear this gown again. It was the perfect neckline-not too revealing but definitely sexy enough. The dress runs long. I'm 5'4" but j wore 5 inch heels and still touched the ground. Wear/rent this dress if you want to stand out while showing some curves.

JAW DROPPING
Dress looked amazing and the responses from everyone confirmed that. Fit was great, a tiny bit long. I wore long earrings and a bracelet, which I feel was perfect. I suggest a round toe heel. My pointed heels kept hitting and getting caught on the bottom of the dress (but slightly long might have contributed to that). Overall, LOVED the dress. Definitely jaw dropping, so be prepared to have all eyes on you.

I attended my prom in the Herve dress and loved how it fit and felt.
It is a very snug fit, undergarments were tricky. You cannot wear a bra, and I wore a lace thong. The color was amazing for my skin tone. I wore 3 1/2 in. heels, still felt it was a tad long. The jewelry and earring were a perfect compliment to the dress. This is a stand out dress in a crowd.

Everyone loved this dress. Color is unique and hot.
Best not to wear undies, this dress shows EVERYTHING! And even if you have a flat tummy if you stand a certain way, well, all shows. I didnt wear a bra...unfort when it got cold it showed a bit. But, it is a hot color and you will probe be in the only one wearing it. I think this dress is great for someone over 5/6 who is in shape....a nice but, arms and flat tummy and you look you came from the runway. It was $200 to rent since it was right out of the bag new; I was desperate so I went for it. I dont know if I would spend $200 again for it though.

Hands down the best dress I've ever worn!
Ahhhhh this dress!!! Phenomenal! The color is STUNNING!! Fit like a glove...hides every flaw and does wonders for your figure! Was just a smidge longer than I would have liked but still fine. I'm 5'4 and wore platform stiletto Jimmy Choo's. I know a lot of other reviews have talked about needing a low back or backless bra...I ordered 6 different ones from amazon...everything from Nubra to U front and low back...after not liking any of these I put my regular Victoria's Secret on and it was great! I used fashion tape to secure the straps and chest area and never bothered with it once throughout the night! I am a 32DD for the most part...the bra I wore this evening was a 32DDD. Got a million compliments on this dress!

An elegant and fun event that was unforgettable. Truly a hommage to DA Bronx.
This dress is a jaw dropper and show stopper all in one!!! I cannot begin to express how awesome this dress looks (especially when on). This dress is to be worn by a true fashionista who does not mind being the center of attention. Pros: 1. Awesome Color (very bold hot pink) 2. Fit...it is true to size....And has great elasticity and support 3. Flattering for the curvaceous :-) Cons: 1. Not for anyone under 5'4"....even with 4" heels it dragged on the floor. 2. Not really a con...but hard to find the perfect undergarments....seamless is the best (this will show every nook and cranny that you have...so a girdle is a no go! Again...I absolutely loved loved this dress!!!

Showstopper gown, perfect fit!
I'm 5'6" tall, 140 pounds, 32D bra, and I wore the Small Regular to a Black Tie Wedding and it was A PERFECT FIT. I wore it with a 4" heel; it just perfectly grazed the floor in the back and I never stepped on the front. I wore it with a regular bra, but I loosened the straps so that I could pull the back band down to be hidden. It is a nice heavier material with a lot of stretch, so it smooths out everything and makes you look FLAWLESS. It was a smidge loose at the straps , but only because I was wearing a bra so I was readjusting it once or twice so that it aligned with my bra straps. I would wear this dress again and again if I could!

It fit so well and made me feel so good!
When I first got it I thought it would be short because I am almost 5'10 and I wore 4 inch heels. But in the end it looked good and it wasn't short at all. So many people told me I looked beautiful and that they loved my dress. You just need to be careful because this dress shows all your curves. I loved it and I felt so comfortable with him! The color is beautiful and I would wear it again!

Gorgeous color and flattering fit. Definitely a dress that stands out!
Wore this dress to a military ball. It was super flattering and hugged my curves in all the right places. I received lots of compliments throughout the night! I'm 5'2" and the dress was about 4 inches too long for me. I hemmed it using the Hollywood fabric tape. It didn't look perfect, but it stayed in all night even though the fabric is heavy. I recommend wearing a backless bra with this dress. Overall, gorgeous color and flattering fit! Very satisfied.

This dress is great but a bit heavy for the June wedding I was attending so I ended up wearing my other option that was sent. Also it was a bit long. But very flattering. I may try to rent this in the future for something in early fall.

I rented this dress for a wedding and received many complements.
The dress was stunning and in true Herve Leger style it did not disappoint. The dress fit well, but i did notice that the breast are was quite stretched out and I needed to put double sided tape to make sure it was not showing and gaps. The dress was also a little long so make sure you wear 4 inch heels. I loved how this dress made me look.

Loved this dress
This dress is a little stretchy so it was very comfortable the whole night. Easy to dance in. I had a black tie wedding to go to and this was perfect not one complaint. I was a little nervous it was too long and I was going to trip over it but I wore 5 inch heels and it was fine.

I was by far the dressiest at my event with this gown on - beautiful dress! I would highly recommend
I have a very muscular build - I work out a lot so it was a little tighter on my back, but overall it fit me perfectly! I am tall so I always worry about the dress being long enough and for the first time I actually found myself lifting the gown up when walking so as to not trip! I wish I didn't have to send it back :(

I felt like Barbie in this gown!
This gown was absolutely perfect for my friends wedding!! The color was perfect, it was sexy without being too revealing & very comfortable! I did get a little hot by the end of the night but I was dancing a lot and the reception was outdoors. The size small fit well but the XS would've been a better fit, if available. I am 5'4" and wore a 4.5" heel and the dress was still a tad bit too long but not crazy long. All in all, this was a fabulous dress! Everyone loved it! Definitely a recommended rental, well worth it :)

Pretty back up dress
This dress I didn't end up wearing, but I did think it was pretty. The straps and chest area were very stretched out, if that area felt more secure I might have worn it. True to size but form fitting for sure. I have a total food baby in the picture, so spanx might be a good idea if you're thinking about this dress.

The Color!!!!
First of all, the beautiful color of this dress makes it a TOTAL show stopper! It hugs you in all the right areas and is surprisingly comfortable and easy to move around in. With that being said, it does run a little long. My function was for an awards so it was mostly red carpet, sit down dinner, etc. I am about 5'5 with my heels on and the dress was about and inch too long so if your are shorter that 5'3 keep that in mind if you plan on moving around or dancing in it. The length is the only reason it didn't get 5 stars from me.

Definitely a show-stopper!
I ordered this dress as my back-up and ended up liking it more than my original pick! It is made of very thick, stretchy, curve-hugging material - and of course my boyfriend loved how it made my booty pop! That being said, I did feel as if I had to suck-in my belly all night (and I basically have six-pack abs). The dress runs very long - I am already 5'10" and had to wear taller heels than planned to keep it from dragging. I wore the straps slightly off-the-shoulder since I have a small bust and liked it better this way. I received many compliments on the fit & bright color - perfect for a summer wedding! I would definitely order this dress again - but I'd only recommend it if you're ready to have all eyes on you!

The dress was a perfect fit. The color, weight and material wore very well on me. Love HERVÉ LÉGER
My favorite color is hot pink!! Needless to say, I loved the color. I'm 5'7 and was worried the dress may not be long enough. But, because the material stretches and has a good weight to it it fit perfectly, even with 4 inch heels. I would definitely rent this dress again!! It was a pink dream come true to wear a HERVÉ LÉGER gown!

As other reviewers have said, this dress is long. I am 5'7" and wore 4 inch heels and the dress was sweeping the floor. If you are shorter (or don't wear heels) it is going to be very long. Love the color. The pink really pops.

I have never felt as amazing as I did in this dress!
I wore this dress to an Infantry Ball. It was just stunning! I will agree with other reviewers on several points, however. It was very long. I'm 5'6", wore 4 inch heels and was still occasionally stepping on it. Also, even with the skimpiest of undergarments, I could still see lines. It is crazy tight, by my gosh, does it do wonderful things for the rear end! I would definitely wear this dress again, or any Herve Leger dress for that matter!

Great fit and amazing color!
The dress came in on time. The 4L i ordered was a little big so the 2L was perfect. Im 125 and 5 7'. The length was perfect for my height i wore 3 inch heels with it. This is low cut, so if you are a busty woman this might not be a good choice.

Loved this dress! So many compliments!
I work this dress to charity gala and it was perfect! The dress fit like a glove. I am a 34DD and did not have to wear a bra with this dress (nor do I think one would have fit under it). I carry most of my weight in my hips and bust and the dress hit in all of the right places. I wore a Long lengh and it was perfect with 4" heels on.

Stunning color!
The MR was my backup size. the SR I thought I'd wear became unavailable. No biggie because the MR fit perfectly. I wore this for a charity Mardi Gras ball and the bright pink was a perfect fit. It is quite tight, but still moveable. I'm 5'2 and with 6 inch heels the dress was still a bit too long. I had to lift it up a lot during the night but I managed without it interfering with the fun. (I tried fashion tape but the material was too heavy for it.) I received so many compliments while wearing this. My husband asked right away, can you buy it and keep it? This was my first Herve Leger dress and I will definitely be renting this designer again.
