Perfect for an evening Gala
I ordered both the Small and X-Small. I wore the extra small because it fit better around the bust line. The Small was too loose under the arms. This dress is comfortable even though it is snug all the way around. The lining is super soft. I did not wear a bra - no need. The dark navy blue is very flattering. It's a bit difficult to walk at the same pace as your date since you have to take little steps - that was the only hiccup.

One of my favorites
This is possibly one of my favorite rentals ever, sadly the zipper was broken on the dress and I wasn't able to wear it :( I tried to wear it out for fight night in Vegas at Bellagio. Would've been perfect! I will rent again for sure. It's extremely sexy, thick quality material, fitted, bodycon. Can't go wrong with this dress especially if you're curvy or hourglass shape. Even if you aren't, I think this dress helps give you that shape. No spanx or bra even needed. Length worked on me even though I'm short. Versatile styling options. Very comfortable. A winner.

The straps were too long for my short torso.
This is a lovely dress, that overall ran true to size, but the straps are REALLY long. Consequently, I wasn't able to wear it. If you have a long torso, I'm sure it would be stunning. If you have a short torso, I would avoid.

Perfection
Herve did it again! He never fails! Bday dinner in Miami, this dress was a hit. And my curves were made for this dress. I wore the small instead of the medium because I wanted a tighter fit. Herve is made to be worn tight, NEVER size up. I waited a long time for this dress and it was so worth it.

Great rental
I am 3 months post partum and was nervous about the fit, a small was perfect, I am 5'7, currently 157 lbs ( pre baby 145) my normal size is a small/ medium with upper end designers and this dress allows for a lot of stretch with a high quality material. Great rental!

Just okay
I loved this dress however I felt that it stretched out dramatically through out the night. I continuously was pulling my straps back on my shoulders which really got annoying through out the night. Not my most favorite rental but I did get a lot of compliments.

Herve never disappoints!
Dress was true to size - keep in mind that the sleeves are really loose though. This causes the front of the dress to show even more cleavage. I have super long hair so I ended up pinning the sleeves up at the back of my neck to keep everything in place. I know a few people say to "size up". However; I don't agree. It's a bandage dress and is supposed to fit super tight. It's very curve hugging and will have the curvy girls looking great. Really thick material - No spanx needed. The back of the dress is also low cut. I ended up going with a strapless bra and just pushing it down below the opening. I've rented a ton from RTR and Herve always ends up being my fav!

Perfect dress for cocktail event!
Such a great Herve - this dress will create an instant shape for you. It is a little tricky the first couple of steps to figure out how to walk naturally because it is pretty constricting to mid calf but nothing that should prevent you from wearing. I gave it four stars because the low scoop made my already really flat chest look flatter so I was a by self conscious and pulling the dress up several times during the night. Other than that, was perfect!

comfortable and slimming
Love this dress! It's tight and the neckline plunges pretty far. The interesting part of this dress is definitely the back. Zips the entire way with 2 zippers that meet in the middle for an interesting V back line. Not the easiest dress to dance in especially with my fear of the zippers slipping.

An awesome Brooklyn wedding!
Like other Herve dresses the fit is meant to be snug, snug, snug. But it is not constricting or uncomfortable. The details on this dress, from the scalloped edges and texture to the ultra cool zipper on the back make this dress, for me, a bit more unique than some other Herve dresses. I had a blast wearing it and got lots of compliments :) - BUT as other reviews mentioned the straps are long. I am a 36D and I managed it, but in some photos I look a little too booby.

The dress looked great! I received so many compliments!
At first I was worried about the length. I'm 5'4, so it hit below the knee. Once I put on heels, I felt the length worked. I had to wear the XS because the S was way too big on the chest area (& I'm 32DDD!). The XS was almost a little big on the chest too, I kept pulling my bra in. Maybe it was stretched out by multiple wears. Luckily the dress didn't show signs of wear. I work at 20 week pregnant and felt it was very flattering and didn't make me feel like a stuffed sausage.

Great dress that'll get you a lot of attention
It was a very form fitting dress that is very flattering . The dress is cut very low and I couldn't wear a bra . The straps were too big and I kept pulling them up all night because the dress would drop lower in front . My breasts were exposed more than I prefer . I'm a 34D.

Very low cut
The straps were too long on me, making it so low cut that my nipples were almost peaking out. My husband said it wasn't too bad but I couldn't go out in public like that. Still a pretty dress

This dress is amazing! I received so many compliments. It was sexy and classy.
I usually wear a size 2 so ordered the small. It was a bit big in the chest (32C) so my bra kept popping out at the top. I will definitely order this dress again but will order an XS. Its Herve Ledge, its supposed to be fitted. It will hold you in.

Beautiful dress, great quality.
I ordered both the medium and the small (as a backup) and ended up wearing the small. It was a little more snug than I would have liked, but the straps were WAY too long on the medium. I did notice the straps on the small stretched a bit throughout the night, but never to the point where I was uncomfortable and pulling up my dress all night. Overall, this dress was great - I would definitely rent again! My advice - rent your normal dress size and one size smaller as a backup.

First Herve Leger rental...
This dress is more beautiful in person (hard to see details in pics) and was very flattering and smoothing but had a few flaws. The main flaw was that the straps were too long and loose. I am 5'7" and have a long waist/torso and semi-broad shoulders, so if it's long and loose on me, I can't imagine how it would fit on someone shorter or with a different figure. Because of this, it did not support my boobs at all, and I felt like it did nothing to make them look good (I am a 32D - DD @ VS). I actually think it might be better on someone with a smaller chest, or maybe if you are lucky to get one that doesn't have stretched out straps. For that reason, I would not rent this dress again, which is disappointing because I had been super excited to rent it!! However, I still give it 4 stars because WOW the quality is amazing and fits like a glove everywhere else!

Fantastic Fit to the dress
I rented both the S and XS. I ended up wearing the small because the bust portion actually seemed SMALLER than the XS and the straps shorter. Perhaps the XS had been work by more people with larger busts. The S felt a little looser than i would have liked but it was still gorgeous and would rent again. If you are either very large or very small chested, I would say to steer clear of this one, though.

Felt sexy and classic. A win in my book! The scoop neck felt like it was a bit loose compare to the rest of the dress-- I have boobs to hold it up-- but I felt the straps were sliding a little. Great dress overall!

I wore this for a formal fundraiser for work. I am pictured with my father. Love this dress!
Fits snug. I didn't need to wear a bra. I'm 5'2 so it was below my knee. I weigh 125lbs so it was hard to zip but fit perfectly once everything was in place:) I loved the classic look but because of the material I felt sexy yet sophisticated and received many compliments. I would purchase this dress if I had the opportunity.

Gorgeous dress
I loved everything about it. It's very well made, the material is pretty thick, and it fits super snug which helps accentuate every curve. I didn't find the straps to be too long. I opted to wear it without a bra but could've worn one if necessary. Would definitely rent again!

I really wanted to love this dress. It did not fit my bust well at all, I'm a 32DDD.
The bust was small and the dress was really hard to walk in. I rented it in hopes tonwear out for my birthday diner. Ended up not wearing it.

Beautiful cut but not for smaller chest...
I love the way Herve Leger dresses fit me. Super tight and sexy but really elegant. However this specific dress the neckline is super low. The fit was great everywhere else but my boobs were literally almost falling out of this dress. Had to return it. Great cut and color though.

Beautiful dress
I was hoping this would fit tighter than it did. Beautiful dress but the last Herve Leger dress i rented in an xs fit amazing and held me in well, i didnt even have to wear a bra. This dress ran a little larger, not sure if it's because it has been worn and stretched out or if this particular style runs bigger? The straps were a little long too and if it was a little tighter and i didn't wear a bra it would have been ok but i constantly had to adjust myself. Gorgeou dress though and very comfortable! Received a lot of compliments!

Beautiful dress, but risky neckline
I ordered this dress for a cocktail party. I ended up wearing a different dress, but this dress is beautiful none the less. The material is thick and does wonders for curves. The cut, dark blue color and fabric make this dress flattering on all shapes, skin tones and sizes. The reason I didn't wear this dress was because the straps were a little long. As other reviewers have stated, the dress falls precariously low. The heavy material, long straps, and my lack of assets to hold the dress up put me at risk for a wardrobe malfunction

Perfect dress for a birthday or night out!
Loved this dress! Wore this for my birthday celebration. The color and cut was amazing! I've worn Herve before and this certainly didn't disappoint. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is bc the dress itself is so heavy. It's a heavy material and not very forgiving as far as stretch. It's hard to walk in bc of the length around your calves and it being so fitted. Would definitely wear this again though!

Incredibly flattering for a curvy girl with a small bust
I rented this for registration for a fitness competition, and it didn't disappoint. It's navy blue, and the zipper (heavy duty, but looks more like gold hardware... LOVE) creates an incredible line down the back. Made my butt look awesome. I have an A cup (normally a B, but competition prep shrunk the girls), broad shoulders, and weighed about 125 when I rented it. Was totally unsure if this would work, but it did--even without a bra. Highly recommend if you're looking for a hot dress that really shows off exactly who you are.

Herve does it again
Every Herve dress I rent is perfection. This scoop neck was a bit low, and low beach meant no bra, so my girls were a little squished and I looked a little more flat chested than I would have preferred. That said, the fabric holds you in place so you don't have to worry about the fact that you're bra less. Hem was longer even on me (5'8") but still a sexy dress. The bandages on this dress are thinner and have detailing that the traditional bandage dresses don't have which was nice. Navy blue color is very dark but more flattering than black. Full zip in the back was genius as I could create a slit for myself because the fabric is tight and I wanted to walk, haha. Another great Herve.

"Am I a Kardashian?"
Great dress. I'd definitely rent again. Slightly different style and fit than other HL dresses I've rented in the same size before. Pros: Great length. I'm 6' and it hit me at the knee. Wedding appropriate IMHO. Scalloped edges and material texture have a nice feminine detail. Super figure flattering. Sucks you in everywhere. I wore this dress with spanx underneath and it made it look like I was wearing a waist trainer. Made my booty look like a million bucks, like I do squats every day or something, like I was a Kardashian. Overall I loved the dress and the pros super outweighed the cons, but I figured these things were worth mentioning for people to be aware of. Cons: Slightly stretched out bust & armpits -- I have small boobs and had to use cutlets to fill it out. Hanger straps kept popping out of the armpit, so I had to fashion tape them down from the inside. Zips all the way up and down in back so you have to be aware of that. Since its long and tight, it kind of limits your range of mobility -- so it was kind of hard to walk up and down stairs in at first, but after a few cocktails I was able to get low during the "a little bit softer now" of "Shout"
