Beautiful dress for charity event!
I absolutely loved this dress, however, my backup size was not available and the Small was a bit too large up top. The RTR team did everything possible to make sure I had a dress though, they are incredible! Sent me 2 extra dresses to choose from just in case! The dress also had a slight snag in the side and 2 small spots (you wouldn't see any of this unless you were really looking), but other than that my experience was great! I am 5' 6" and the dress was a little long so I think you would be fine with regular length if it's available!

Too long for petite girls, but gorgeous.
I ended up not being able to wear this dress because it was simply far too long. (Wish regular sizes were available for us smaller girls!) If I were taller, though, it would have been a stunner. Definitely know that you're renting a very sexy dress here; on me, the cutouts exposed a larger swath of midriff than they do on the model. And because of the fit in the chest (though this may be different for taller girls), I was concerned that a quick movement might lead to a wardrobe malfunction. If you're able to make it work, though, you'll undoubtedly be the center of attention all evening, so revel in it! As for fit and color: The fit is classic Herve, so go with your usual size, and note that the color is more of a true orange than red.

Rented dress for formal charity ball, did not end up wearing.
For reference I am 5'4" and 130 lbs. Bra is 34C. I have an hour glass figure. I rented this dress in a Small Long, because I knew I would be wearing high heels with this (at least 3.5 inches), the long was too long. The top section where it cuts in was also weirdly too big on me as well. I have a smaller rib cage, but the fit was almost like an under boob because of how high it went up in the back. It was a very pretty dress, but I would not recommend for hour glass figures, as the bottom is so fitted as well. If someone is more broad in the shoulders and has a thicker rib cage I think the dress may suit them better.

Loved it but it is heavy
I rented this for a cruise and loved the fit and the feel but I the end chose a dress that was a little lighter but I would Rent this again. I'm 5'10" and usually wear a size 6 the Long medium was perfect!

It was a great evening. I would have worn this dress but it was very long.
The dress fit perfectly, easy to get on. It was extremely long, even with my heels. It bunched a little at the bottom of the V in the front, but it wasn't bad. I would to have kept adjusting all night. If it was a little shorter, or I wore higher heels I would have worn this.

Awesome orange color, but need to be 5'9" or taller!
This dress has heavy burnt orange fabric that I absolutely loved, but it was so big and very, very long. I had 4 inches of fabric on the floor even with 4" heels on.

Now I get why the Kardashians love Herve...
Dress runs true to size and hugs your curves in the most flattering way. The part that fastens at the back of the neck was very loose on me -- since it acts as sort of a halter, this made the chest area also a bit loosey-goosey but nothing terribly noticeable. The fabric is heavy, so it smooths out any problem areas. 4L was the perfect length for me at 5'8" + 3" heels.

Arrived fast and super sexy dress.
The dress has rubber edging on the inside to help keep the dress from shifting or slouching so it keeps its shape near the open cutout on your abs. Very form fitting but in a great way. Very thick fabric which helps hide Spanx line if you are wearing under. Probably not a great dress for busty women--I am small on top and used sticky cups over my boobs since it is backless so can't wear a bra. Will definitely rent again! Received so many compliments.
