Herve Leger my GO-TO...
Unfortunately I actually didn't wear this dress but I rented it for a bachelorette party in Chicago....Since I rented two other amazing dresses this one sat the weekend out. I did try it on, ran true to Herve sizing (I always wear a small) Great dress! No tugging or pulling on the top to keep it up.

Everyone loved the colors of this dress! Super fun for a Bachelorette party!
This dress is awesome. It hugs your curves- but in a good way! The material is thick and forgiving so curvy girls look great in it! One issue- even though this material is thick- it is possible to sweat through it. Granted we were in Austin, TX and it was 90 degrees at night:)

Fun Dress for a Fun Night
Loved the color blocking! Despite the very tight fit, the dress is really comfortable! Plenty of spandex involved, so I had no problem being able to move around freely. Been looking for others like it for every occasion!

This dress helped make my 30th unforgettable!
I wore this dress for my 30th birthday party - the colors and material of the dress are incredible - I would highly recommend this dress and had a blast wearing it! Just an FYI, there were times I had to pull up the top as you would with mostly any strapless dress.

My husband could not keep his eyes off of me. He was so attentive and proud. He finally admitted, "Wow! You're beautiful." My son confirmed it on his facebook page.
This is an amazingly well fitting dress. I didn't think it would be, but I never once had to adjust it like I do with all other sleeveless dresses. Although I've lost nearly 20 pounds to wear this dress, I still had some problem areas, but they are well concealed with this dress.

I received great compliments. The dress was also very flattering. I'll definitly order from RTR again.
Very to to size I was able to fit both the XS and the S but choose to wear the S to a wedding. I received great compliments. Dress is very flattering.

It was a Birthday Party that I'll remember forever!
I ordered the XS and a S. My measurements are 29-27-42. Pear. The XS fit PERFECTLY!! I wore a VS Bombshell strapless bra and I didn't have to adjust the top at all. The color is more of a fuchsia than a purple. The teal strip on the side was my favorite part!

I wish I could keep this dress. I would wear it every weekend if I could!
I felt so good wearing this dress! Many compliments from friends and the boyfriend. It's tight but the material is thick so it gives your body a smooth figure. This is perfect for a hot date or cocktail party!

Yowza!
Where do I even begin.... I would've given a 10 star rating if possible. Stunning, gorgeous, makes you feel (and look) like a million bucks! If you're considering this rental, do it! I wore the Med. and would've liked the Large but the bust was very stretched out and back waistband too big to work out. Perfect length, fits and accentuates curves rather than flattening like many strapless do, and comfortable enough to dance all night. Love, love, love and can't wait for the next reason to rent it again :)

Great for a wedding
I wore this dress to a semi formal wedding this summer, loved the bright colors and fit. The internal strap helps keep the dress up, no adjusting necessary even when spending all night on a dance floor.

Awesome super hot dress, that made this mom feel sexy and my man's jaw drop.
I wore this to a Miami wedding held on a yacht. It fit true to size for me--no vanity sizing here. I wear a 2 to 4 in the Gap which everyone knows is really a 4 to a 6. The small fit my 5'3" frame great. I have a big butt and a 34C chest. It was tight in my chest area. I needed assistance zipping it up. I took advantage of the open bar so I cannot say whether it got loose but I can say I got tons of compliments from guys and gals and I loved this dress. You COULD wear spanx with this dress if you got the ones that don't have the seam in the front but I found it unnecessary. It did tent a little at the small of my back BUT I really do have a large derriere--that should not be a problem for most ladies. I don't regret my rental and I am already looking at another dress for my brother-in-law's July wedding. I am looking at something more conservative as his wedding is a traditional church ceremony. Keep in mind when looking at my weight that I have a large frame so 140 sounds bigger than it actually is--if you normally wear a 6 and we are the same weight I would get a medium with a small as backup.

I loved this dress! I love the bandage dresses and this one did not disappoint. The only issue I had was at the top, sometimes I had to remember to stand up straight to not cut myself off. I got a lot of compliments and was really happy with the dress.

Made me feel like a bombshell! Beautiful dress, vibrant colors!
My first Herve experience. LOVE. The Small and Medium both worked- but the Medium was more comfortable and flattering around my bust (didn't push em down so much) True to size- gorgeous dress. Size up for the 2nd size just in case. Wonderful length for my 5'7" height.

This dress turned heads, especially my husbands! It was a great fit & perfect to wear to a concert.
Fit was snug, but breathable and very comfortable. I wore a size L but could have gotten away with a size M.

Dress is super hot & sexy!
The dress was very tight fitting, so I probably could have gotten the large. However, it is very stretchy. So even though it was a tight fit, I wasn't uncomfortable. The colors are really vivid!

Loved this dress! Perfect for my bachelorette party!!!
Great dress! I loved that I was able to wear a regular strapless bra with this dress. The dress felt pretty tight at first but seemed to stretch out some and mold to my body the longer I wore it. The dress was very comfortable.

I wore my back up dress instead, but my sister did
I rented this dress for a girl's bachelorette weekend. I knew it'd be a tight dress, I ordered both M & L but didn't like the fit of either enough to wear for a night out in DC. It was perfect for my sister however. Here is a picture of both of us wearing a medium.

Gorg dress!
was deciding between 3 similar herve bandage dresses - the small gives a little more length, and is still flattering but def not as tight, and gives you a little more room to breath!

Celebrating the big 3-0 in style!
First time renting from RTR, not to mention a Herve Leger! This was the perfect dress to celebrate my birthday dinner in Napa. Fit like a glove- if you size too big, it will leave extra material around your waist. I bought spanx beforehand, but when I tried on the dress, turned out I didn't need it! The dress is like it's own Spanx! Later in the night I noticed that the top pulled down every so often, so I had to tug it back up a bit. Paired this with 3" heels and the Kendra Scott bib necklace to finish off the look. Thank you RTR! You made my birthday!!!

Sadly this dress was not flattering at all on my body so I chose not to wear it and wore my back up dress instead. The material is thick and the colors are beautiful, it just didn't look good on me. :(

Hot!
My first Herve Leger rental, and I loved it! I rented the Medium with the Large as a backup, and I had to go with the Large. I agree with the other reviews that the material of the dress does sort of act like spanx on it's own, but I also watched what I ate and drank lots of water before wearing it to make sure I was slim enough in the middle and still needed one size up from my normal size. Wore it out for a night in Vegas with the girls, and I felt really sexy in it. Deduced one star b/c I did have to pull up the very top of it all night as my bra kept peeking out.

Great dress, made me feel like I looked smaller than I am.
This was a backup dress to the "Lets Get Loud" dress that I also rented and did end up wearing (AWESOME DRESS). However, I tried on this dress to see if I could rent it again in the future and yes I would consider it... however it flattened out my chest slightly and the purple was more of a mauve and faded a little this is why I docked one star. I am sure they have several of these dresses so?

The dress was beautiful and I got compliments all night.
I ordered the XS and the S. After reading the reviews, I thought for sure I would be able to wear the XS. However, when the dress came I fought to get it on and then spent 20 minutes trying to get it back off from where it had bunched up around the smallest part of my waist. I ended up wearing the small; It was still a little bit of a tight fit around the rib cage. I had to have my brother zip me into the dress. Overall, the dress was beautiful and I'm really happy with the compliments I got all night. You can definitely tell the fabric is high quality. The next time I order from this designer though, I'll get a S and M.

So tight!
I got this dress in 2 colors and 2 different sizes. The pink color is wayyyy prettier (Line them up dress). Unfortunately, I ended up having to wear this color in S because the XS pink was too tight (couldn't breathe!) It's a beautiful dress, don't get me wrong but it has this weird green stripe on the side that I don't think compliments the other colors. I only mention this because I did not notice the green stripe from the picture but in person it stands out more. Other than that I would def recommend this dress to anyone trying to show off those curves!

Cute dress, but showing wear
The dress was very fun and colorful, but sadly the large was a little worse for wear. There's a strap, of sorts, to hook behind you inside the dress to help hold it up, but the hook was broken off so I had to just tuck it in and it got in the way. The medium was too snug for me. It also kinda drooped in the front and I would have had to pull it up constantly if I wore it.

I wore this to a bachelorette party and felt super sassy!
The fit was amazing! Herve really does hug your shape in the best possible way. I did wear Spanx just to help smooth out some of my lines and problem areas. I only gave this four stars because we went out dancing and I spent a good portion of the evening tugging the dress up and pulling it down. Either way, I loved it! I paired it with nude heels and the House of Harlow geometric necklace that other people recommended.
