I really miss having a Herve Leger store near me. The Herve Leger selection in department stores, particularly for smaller sizes is really disappointing. The deficiency also emphasizes how great online shopping is; the selection is so much better, and the prices can be deeply discounted... like on Lollipuff! ;)
If the selection at department stores was better, and all sizes were on display including xxs, the demand for Herve Leger would be even greater! All too often, women size themselves larger, and they really miss out in that magical shaping this designer brand provides.
Anyway, enough of my rant. On to a review of six 2015 Herve Leger dresses. :)
This dress (here) really surprised me. On the hanger, it seemed like one of those over-complicated dresses that would be overwhelming on a petite or average frame. But, my tune changed the moment I put this dress on. The folds, the neckline, the slimming black color, It is sexy and really really sophisticated!
The hold on this dress was also above average. The dress runs half size big compared to most Herve Leger styles.
I guess the advantage of limited selection is that you end up trying on dresses that you normally wouldn't. The Viviana (here) was another very pleasant surprise.
My stature and frame usually doesn't carry a knee-length fit and flare well, but I guess in Herve Leger dresses, it works! :) I loved the shape of this dress, very sweet but also very sexy.
This dress runs one size big. It has average Herve Leger hold.
The Akio (here) is a very easy-to-wear dress. The lines on the dress further enhance an hourglass shape. And, the dress can easily be paired with a blazer for an extremely chic office look.
This dress runs true-to-size and has average Herve Leger bodycon shaping.
This gold metallic Eva dress (here) didn't work on my body. It runs one size big and is particularly big around the torso, so the hold was below average for Herve Leger.
The Elisha (here) is very pretty. Everyone should have an a-line Herve Leger dress, and this would be a great essential.
The green color is also very refreshing. Before this year, I had only seen counterfeit Herve Leger in a green shade like this. This shade will make certain complexions glow!
This dress ran one size big as well.
The Mahala (here) that was tried on was in a size that was 2 sizes too big. But, because it was such a unique dress, I decided to give it a whirl anyway. :)
It had above average hold on the top half and average hold on the bottom half. This dress also ran big in my opinion.
Hope you enjoyed these reviews. Have you recently tried on Herve Leger dresses in stores? If so, which one(s) did you really love?
