Great vibrant blue in person!

I probably could've worn the XS but I put the small on first and didn't want to ruin my hair by changing. It fit great regardless and looked nice with black tights for a winter party. The color is much more blue than it looks on the model and the pattern is very flattering. It was comfortable and did not get stretched out over the course of the night.

Fun pattern!

Wore it to AC with work and it was the perfect dress for a work/club function. I loved the material and the cut. It was a great length for my height! The blue stood out so much more than I expected.

Very sexy dress for a date night

This dress is true to size, but very thick fabric and sooo tight. If you are self conscious about a small belly pooch, this is not the dress for you.

Not quite what I had expected

The material is quite thick. If you have thicker arms, this dress makes them look wider. I would not recommend.

Vegas replacement

Got sent another Herve dress that was way too small and had a broken zipper. Was very happy with the exchange process and enjoyed this dress. Comfortable but just a tad short for standard length Spanx. Would definitely size up though!

Great dress for a petite frame

This dress was so perfect for my petite frame. It was just the right amount of short and sexy for a work formal. It fits like a glove. The material is heavy so it was nice for a December formal. Definitely recommend.

Perfect little black dress with a twist! Show stopping for sure!

I ordered the small and xsmall. The xsmall fit perfectly for a body con dress. Material is thick so it hugs every curve but is still very flattering. Rides up when you walk or sit down. Overall very happy with this rental!

Didn't wear it but I would!

This dress was shipped to me because my dress was damaged before shipping. I did have my original dress in another size so I didn't wear this one but I really like it. The dress had the right balance of sexy and classy. It was skin tight but because of the thick material it was very flattering. I might rent it some day!

I loved this dress so much! It was form fitting but sucked me and and smoothed out my curves. I probably could have gone with the small, but felt more comfortable in the medium.

Love it!

It was very form fitting and fit perfect. Since im petite the length was just right, not too short not too long. The blue color is brighter and beautiful! I pared it with metallic silver pumps and simple statement necklace. Got numerous complements all night!!

A Perfect Vegas Dress

A comfortable and sexy dress. The fabric was thick and had great stretch that moved with my body. The dress did rise a little while walking, but I never felt like I had to tug it down. I rented at the Vegas Storefront in the Cosmopolitan Hotel. It was a blast. I got to try on several dresses, and while I waited for a dressing room, I enjoyed looking at the accessories also available to rent. I can't wait to Rent the Runway again!

NYC Fun dress

The material is a knit that keeps you warm. It's very tight and form fitting, and is true to size if not a little small in fit. I got tons of compliments, and it was fun to wear around the city.

Wish I owned this!!

I felt so good in this dress! It was a replacement for the one that I had originally rented that was returned damaged. Customer service was amazing and got this dress out to me overnight. I probably could have worn the medium, but the large felt great. I'd rent this over and over again!

I did not wear this dress. Pretty colors, thick material but way too short. I am 5,5 and it was barely covering my bum, I would not wear it.

Dress came in on time.

The dress is very fitted, but comfortable. The design and color are just as good as advertised. The only negative thing I can same is that it does ride up when you walk.

Love!

Great dress! I wore the XS I'm 5'2 115lbs. Fit like a glove. The dress is thick and forgiving even though it is very firm fitting. The only negative is it would ride up a bit while I walked. Totally recommend!

Great dress for date night

Really did love the look and fit of this dress. I pnly had the small as an option as it was my backup, but I think i would have liked a medium. The fabric is thick like others mentioned in their reviews, so it does hug nicely, but if you have extra curves or cushion like me, spanx are required to really smooth everything out. My only complaint is that the dress rode up every couple of steps. I was constantly pulling it down as i walked, and no one likes doing that.

Comfortable and Classy

Wore this to a hip hop party. The pattern and color were a bit outside my comfort zone but it ended up being the perfect dress! The color is vibrant and beautiful and the pattern was amazing and needed little in the way of accessories! And it was super comfortable to boot!

Great for petites

It's tight and short... so if you're tall beware. It was good for my petite 5'2'' body. The color popped and the material was nice. Felt great in this dress.

Overall I thought it was great.

I wore this dress to perform a concert in. I will say, I think this dress photographs well! It was a little too big on me though, but I am petite. The armpit holes were too large, it was longer than I'd hoped and overall not as snug as other dresses I've worn by this designer. Overall, I thought the dress made me look boss and more importantly, I felt comfortable and confident in the dress!

Another RVN hit!

This is the third RVN dress I've rented. It seemed to run slightly larger than the others I've had but still fit great. (I usually like to rent the Small and Medium just in case, and only the small was available this time. Glad I took a chance because it was plenty big!) It definitely did ride up during the night, but nothing too annoying. Definitely blue-er in person than in the RTR photos but in a beautiful way. Photographs well. Would definitely recommend!

Just a dress, until you look closer

From far away it looks like a little black dress, but up close it's really unique! The geometric Hieroglyphics make the dress very modern. It's extremely snug, but sliming. I'm 6 months postpartum and the dress just pulls everything in. I paired with neon shoes and bag.

I was confident AND comfortable in this little number!

I would have probably ordered a Small for myself, but one wasn't available. The Medium fit great, which was a little bit of a surprise given I usually wear a 4. There's just so much stretch in the fabric it essentially molds to your body no matter what! I second the other reviewer that suggests doing your hair and makeup after you put it on - it's a pullover with no zipper. Consider a blingy bracelet to accessorize.

Perfect party dress for my birthday!

This was a fun and comfortable dress! I received a lot of compliments. I ordered the XS and S which both fit nicely but I ended up wearing the S to give myself more room after the big dinner I knew I was going to have. This dress is curve hugging but the thicker material really holds everything together and looks great!

Felt great for my 30th birthday!

Definitely tight like the other reviews said. It did help wrangle my problem areas a bit, and I felt great even though I don't usually wear dresses like this. Received several compliments and was comfortable. Paired with black heeled booties, dangly gold earrings, a gold bracelet and black clutch. Dress was in good condition, there weer a couple minor pulls on the side near the seam but nothing noticeable at all. The large was a little more relaxed in fit but had big gaps by my armpits so I went with the medium. The fit differences otherwise were barely noticeable. Enjoyed wearing it!

Warm, cute dress for a night at the theatre

This is the tightest sheath dress I've ever worn—I am NEVER a size medium, but the small in this dress was so tight I could barely breathe; it was more bodycon than sheath. Wearing the medium made it much more sheath-like, though, and though it was still very conforming to every curve (or bulge), sizing up worked. It puckered a bit in the armholes because of the bigger size, but overall was a good dress for sitting at the theatre comfortably for several hours. I wouldn't suggest eating in this dress, or dancing, as it shows every bulge and rode up on my legs even when just walking to the cab. The material is very thick, and perfect to wear with tights on a cold night as I did!

This dress is fun fun!

The dress is made of the neoprene material..so its stretchy...but also thick. Thick is nice to keep you all sucked in...but when a dress is this short....this material also tends to ride up a bit. I spent a lot of night pulling it down, (as its pretty darn short), but I wore it in Vegas for a night out and it was a great party dress. I would say it runs a tad small so order up for your second size option!
