I recently went to Neiman Marcus to try on some Herve Leger dresses. During this trip, I got to try on some long knee length Herve Leger dresses and the Barbie inspired dresses. Check out my reviews on some of the newest Herve Leger dresses!
If you're new to Herve Leger, make sure that whatever you do, select dresses that are in your size. If you get the size wrong, you won't be able to appreciate what Herve Leger can do for your body!
I wanted to try on some dresses that I normally wouldn't reach for. The Zola dress was exactly that. It had a crazy animal pattern and was quite long for what I'm used to. It turned out to be quite a nice dress. Its hold wasn't as strong as many other Herve Leger dresses, as there was no banding. But, the signature Herve Leger fabric was nice and thick and extremely forgiving. The print on this dress was what made the dress so flattering, and the short sleeves add a dramatic touch. I also tried this dress on backwards! I think it works! :)
Again, this dress didn't have the short hemline that I usually love. I did like the drop waist, and think the Tamar dress would look spectacular on tall ladies. My favorite part of this dress was the neckline. :)
The Dree dress fit very similarly to the Zola. Wonderful print and thick forgiving fabric to exaggerate a woman's shape, but no banding for super cinching hold.
The Neiman Marcus that I went to didn't seem to have the Herve Leger Barbie, but they did have the dresses that inspired Barbie's dresses. Since BCBG is sending us a Herve Leger Barbie, I had to try on these dresses as well in case I want to match the doll! lol...
I have to say Miss Barbie looks much better in the dress than I do. :P
I'm not exactly sure why the Judith is considered the equivalent of Barbie's red dress. It just doesn't look like the same dress to me. There is a dress from 2010 that is a much closer match to Barbie's red dress. Anyway, enough of my rambling...
Out of all of the dresses that I tried on, I liked the Judith the least. The trim on it just wasn't flattering on my body. And, the length combined with the design was awkward for me. But, that's not to say that it wouldn't look wonderful on someone else!
For instance, one of our sweet wonderful Lollipuff members took the time to email us a picture of herself in Herve Leger at a recent Las Vegas trip! This is a dress that I've NEVER been able to pull off, but it looks fantastic on her!
