Classic
The dress was very beautiful on, form fitting and comfortable. The sleeves were tight on my large arms, so if you have the same issue, size up. The netting on the front was damaged on both dresses I received, which I found very noticeable.

Great dress, I felt amazing in it!
I loved this dress and felt great in it. It's long like everyone else said but that is perfect for tall girls that want a dress that will touch the ground. The only issue I ran into is that the netting over the chest had started to get snagged from wear. It seems like it rips pretty easily and is very noticeable if you receive one with rips. One of my two sizes didn't have rips though so I just wore that one.

So flattering!
This dress is very flattering, hides everything. My only complaint is that it is heavy, and so it pulls the top mesh portion down. You could see my strapless bra. Wishing I had worn a bandeau style black bra with it so the lines would be the same. Beautiful dress!

Beautiful, didn't "wow" though.
I rented this dress as a potential look for my engagement shoot. It's a beautiful dress, but not something that I would deem spectacular. I would wear this to a black tie for some edge, but didn't fit the bill this time.

comfortable yet sexy, I ordered a S just because the M was unavailable but ended up working!
probably needed a M for the bust area but a S worked (and I'm a 36DD)

Show stopper!!!!
This dress is perfection. I had so many people stop me and compliment me. It's heavy and well made and extremely form fitting and awesome and flattering. I LOVE this dress and recommend it. It's LONG. I'm 5'7" and wore 4 inch heels and in the XSL it was touching the ground, which I loved. But for shorter gals, beware, it's super long. Tall gals, this is your rental! So glad RTR had it available to rent!

Stunning!
This dress fit like a glove. I ordered the long and was perfect with about 2 inch heels. I received so many compliments on this dress and loved every minute!

If I could wear this everyday I would!!
Probably my favorite gown I have ever worn. The material is so comfortable and thick. Wore it in a blizzard and no complaints. No need for a bra. I was a little nervous the mesh might make the dress look tacky. Boy was I wrong!!! Stand out in your next traditional gown. So Elegant. Compliments all night long. I will definitely be renting this again for another event.

Stylist Review!
A fabulously chic option for your next black tie event. This Hervé Léger runs true to size with some stretch in the fabric. For backup, we recommend sizing up as thel waist is pretty fitted. My typical size 8 fit perfectly and was comfortable. Pair with beautiful earrings to complete the look

Stunning!
This dress was stunning! Great for a gala/formal affair! Form fitting and sexy- it is a beautiful dress! ONLY DOWNSIDE is that it is really long for petite girls like myself. I wore 5 inch heels and still had to hem up the bottom. I used hem tape and black safety pins and it kept up the whole night (even through dancing).

Great dress
This is a gorgeous dress, very classy and sexy and well made. I felt amazing wearing it. I wore size small and it fit very well. Would look good on a woman that has curves. Now two cons: 1)the dress DOES run long, I am 5'5 and wore 4 inch heels and it was still 3 inches too long, I had to use pins to create a temporary shorter hemline ( which worked well). 2) the top my strapless bra waS showing a bit, but it worked well.

Did not get to wear this beautiful gown...
So, they only had a large long left, being used as a replacement for a dress that did not work out for me. The large fit me perfectly and I wear a size 6, but the long was for a 5'10" or up gal, I am 5'8". I will order this again but in the Large Regular next time.

Perfect dress to showcase your curves
LOVED this dress. It's the prefect dress to showcase your curves. It is a heavy dress but not uncomfortable. Its also very long. I am 5'10" and had on 3 inch heels and it was just touching the floor. The only issue I had was the seam across the breast area flips up and makes an odd shadow that looks a little like a nip slip behind the mesh. I think if the seam is pressed down when its dry cleaned it wouldn't be an issue. Other then that I loved everything about this dress. I will be renting it again!!

Stunner!
This is such a glamorous gown!! I'm 5'1" and I got the Small/Long because it was the only length available. I made due with the long in very high ( I'd say almost 6") heels. It was still too long, but the dress was so gorgeous I made it work hahaha. It hugs every curve perfectly and fits very true to size. Make sure to eat anti-bloating foods before wearing this because even though it's black it still hugs everything! Everyone complimented me, I felt amazing in this dress.

Total hit, perfect amount of sexy for formal event
Great fit, beautiful dress with unique cut. Only complaint is that it is so heavy that it pulls down on the top so my bra showed through the mesh top.

Amazing customer service and stunner of a dress
This dress did amazing things for my body! Emphasized curves and flattened out lumps. RTR does not carry size medium in a regular length so this is the long--it was REALLY long. I'm 5'5 and wore 4 in heels and still had to do a fashion tape hem and take off like 2 more inches. Loved this dress so much anyway. The only downside I can see is the mesh getting worn/snagged easily. I was the first person to wear this (still had the tags) and there were already a few little imperfections.
