Super sexy!
Loved this dress! I was able to wear a normal bra with it, just pulled down a bit in the back. I got loads of compliments on it. If you are not body confident, cleavage confident, or do not want a lot of attention, this is not the dress for you! It is very heavy but typical for Herve dresses. Sucks you in in all the right places! I had to wear 5 inch heels to be able to walk without tripping but it was worth it.

Curve-hugging fit, very dramatic
Great dress, I didn't end up wearing it only because I fell in love with another dress but it was a viable option! Very glam.

This dress fit like a glove, hugged curves in all the right place, and I got compliments all night.
I'm 5'6', 145ish lbs, athletic, and the small fit great. I didn't wear a bra but you could if needed. The color is bold and beautiful, definitley an attention-grabber, and you've gotta wear it with confidence! It shows off all curves and makes you feel instantly sexy. Hated to return this one!

Most amazing dress I've ever worn.
Fit amazingly! I've never felt so good. It stretched some as the night went on so Im glad I got the smaller size. Also, its really long so you gotta bite the bullet and wear the high heels...but again, totally worth it.

Really fun ball dress
This dress is definitely a head turner. It fit perfectly and even though it is tight, I felt comfortable and confident in it. The color makes it fun and less and formal than a traditional longer dress. Everyone gave me compliments.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Fun night out
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.

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!

Loved everything about the dress (minus the length)
I put the dress on and it fit like a glove. I was so bummed to find out how long it was. I'm 5'4, 120lbs and SWAM in the dress. Thank goodness I received the order on a Thursday for a Saturday wedding. I called RTR and their customer service was amazing. They got me another dress just in time for the wedding on Saturday. I recommend this dress for taller women who are okay with being even taller because they will definitely need HIGH heels!!

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!

Love this dress! The dress is stunning color is gorgeous and fabric is very comfortable.
I wore the dress to my sisters wedding. Dress is heavy but breathable, not too heavy for a summer wedding. As per normal for this brand a bit of fasting doesn't hurt as these dresses are pretty body hugging. Dress is very long so if you are under 5'7 I would buy the fashion tape to hem it up.

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.

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.

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 :)

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 :(

Wore this for a black-tie optional Gala event in San Francisco. Got lots of compliments!
VERY LONG! I'm 5'6 and wore 5" heels and still had to pick up the hem to walk. Aside from the length, it fit great everywhere else.

The dress was stunning. I received compliments all night.
It hugs you in all the right places. I wore a strapless bra and it worked perfectly. The dress fits like a glove. I usually wear a 4 and bought the small and it fit well. I am 5'7" and got a regular length and it just touched the floor. I highly recommend this dress and would rent it again in a heartbeat.

Highly recommend!
This dress is the best Hervé that I have rented so far! I received this dress as a replacement for the BCBG Elyse gown, and I was more than happy with how it turned out. I wore 5-inch heels, and the dress was the perfect length. The color is definitely more hot pink than depicted, but that is what makes it such a different dress. I got many compliments on the color, and it was thankfully not too low-cut. It also is not too tight but keeps everything in place, which is awesome. I would highly recommend renting this for a formal event!

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.

All I can say is WOW. This is some dress. I am a size 4 and the small was a perfect fit. Fitted, hugging every curve beautifully. Liked the heavier fabric, honestly. Felt so gorgeous in this dress. My husband talked about this dress for a few days after the event. Compliments all night long. Get this dress!!!

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.

Great dress!
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.

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.

Dress was beautiful although very form fitting so tough to wear anything underneath! I loved it!
Dress is gorgeous though it is heavy, I had to pull it up a few times in front. Also the MR was too long for me (I'm 5'4'') but I just used fashion tape to tape up bottom of dress which worked well. It's very form fitting so was tough to wear anything underneath.

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!
