Perfect Spring look

This dress for great! The color was amazing and the fabric was thick. It has an open back but I felt comfortable and secure dancing and sitting in it. I am 110 xs and the 0 fit great.

Small boobs be warned

This fit almost everywhere decently but had SO much extra fabric in the boob area. I'm a 34A so am small chested but you def need C+ boobs to fill out this dress even a little. :( wanted to love

Super short and simple but super cute!

Less fitted in the natural waist than I hoped for, but otherwise so cute. I'm a little bit longer waisted and I think this is designed for people with shorter torsos and longer legs, but it worked ok. I could have worn the 8 or the 10, but opted for the 10 because it was slightly more relaxed. I also felt like the skirt fit better with spanx or a slip, just so it didn't ride up. The silky spanx fabric helped it stay down. For reference, I'm 5'7" and 170lbs. I usually wear a medium at athleta or a 8-10. I wore sticky boobs with this, but the princess seams meant I could have gotten away without a bra if I didn't mind a more 'relaxed' look.

So many compliments on the back!

This dress is super hot! Rent it!! Beware though if you are large in the bust (I'm not)... I think you may have side boob challenges.

Vibrant color but not the best fit

The color and fabric of the dress are great but it was too big on me. As other reviewers have mentioned, the top/ bust area was too big, giving too much side boob. The waist area was pretty lose too so it didn't look very flattering. As a reference, I'm 5'6", 123 lbs, 34C, hourglass figure.

Didn't wear

Unfortunately I didn't end up wearing this dress. It fit so weird... very tight in the legs and butt (and I have absolutely nothing down there) and very large in the chest. Ended up wearing something else.

Amazing!

I wore this to a friend's 21st. It was my first time renting from RTR and I have to say I was so happy!The color is great for summer and I got so many compliments! So comfortable and very true to size. Didn't need a bra because the lining is pretty thick, but you may need bandaids or petals!

Soooo cute but not for A cups!

This dress is hot AF but I am a 32A cup and this dress has seams/darts in the boobs that are at leaaast a C cup. I wore a backless bra stuffed with socks (hey! I had to get creative when my push-up bra wasn't even enough to fill the dress!)

Great color, perfect for summer.

I rented this dress for a Bachelorette weekend. I loved the color of the dress. The top of the dress was loose, would need bigger boobs to fill it out. I ended up just tying the neck straps tighter instead of using the clasps, that helped. Next time I would size down for this dress.

Loved the dress but as someone with small boobs it fit awful. So much fabric in the top area and nothing I could do to stuff it because it's backless

Pro Perks for my Birthday!

It was my birthday and rented this fabulous dress. The color was awesome and dress was comfortable. A regular bra does not work for this dress with the low cut back, but going braless was fine.

Fits perfectly, fabric is thick enough that you don't need a bra!

Super cute fit, very comfortable. The fabric is thick enough and cut perfectly in the bust area where you don't need to wear a bra and it keeps everything in place. However I think it would be loose on people with a small bust.

Not for me

This dress just didn't fit me right and did not end up wearing it. Loved the color and style but didn't work with my broad athletic body type. Was bummed it didn't work out.

I loved the look of the dress. Very classy and age appropriate. You really need big boobs or a fantastic bra to wear it.

Super sexy.

I rented this stress for a girls dinner and it did not disappoint. You do you have to be prepared for some side reveal, I noticed it in a few photos. I am 5'4, 110 pounds, 32C. I was nervous about the length but it ended up being perfect even with the pumps. I do not think that it was too short.

Very short

I loved this dress but was surprised by how short it was. It was flattering if I stood still but when walking/dancing I was constantly tugging it down.

Wanted to like it!

Man I wanted to like this but the dress was just WAY to short. Also, the fabric was not forgiving in hiding any stomach issues you may have AND there's no way you can wear spanxs because the back is SO low. I'm 5'7 and the front came to my high thighs and the back was even shorter. (I have an ample butt) No way sitting or bending would happen. From the waist up was gorgeous and sexy but below was a hot mess. The fabric showed all of my loose skin from birth and weight loss and there was no way I could wear a bra or spanxs to smooth anything out.

Didn’t end up wearing it for my birthday

Loved the color and material but the top part of the dress runs bigger than what I expected for a size zero (I’m a 32B and the top was very loose). Also the clapse for the back of your neck is not adjustable so it’s set at one length only so that didn’t help.

This dress was so comfortable! A perfect spring color!

I am usually a 4 or 6 in dresses and this was huge on me. I ended up pinning the neck tighter and then it was perfect. It was a perfect length and the open back was a nice touch.

Date night

Cute dress! Runs slightly big. As others have said, you can't wear this with a bra at all so I recommend a backless or a sticky bra. I'm petite so I had to safety pin the halter neck to make it fit me length-wise and for it not to sag below my sticky bra.

PERFECT dress for spring!! NEVER wanted to take it off and got soooo many compliments!!!!

I absolutely looooved this dress! the zero fit me pretty well, it had a little bit of extra room but overall it fit pretty true to size. Great length, not too short but definitely not too long. i loved the open back! i wish it was a little tighter around the boob area as once i started swing dancing i felt like my boobs were falling out the side a little. otherwise, no complaints. it was a perfect change of pace for a girl who usually sticks to darker colors!

I love this dress! I got so many compliments. The back is low and super sexy. No complaints

True to size. I am a true size 4. There is extra room for a little bit of hips or booty. I had extra fabric in the bust area but it was okay because it hangs perfectly around the neck.

Love the color!

I love this edgy dress by Jay Godfrey! Running true to size with some stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for a backup. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and fitted at the hips. It works best for A - C cups sizes. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress, so you should wear a Nubra or no bra at all. At 5'3, the length hit mid-thigh on me.

Did not wear. Due to the fact you have to be braless I could not pull this look off.

Fit fine across hips and butt. Puckered at top as I'm small breasted and old..lol. im too saggy in breast area to wear braless dress . I could maybe have found some type of sticky bra or cutlets but would be too uncomfortable.

Great summer dress for night out!

Rented this for a bachelorette party. Fun dress and it stayed put all night. Wasn't too short on me. But you must have a large bust. I wear a 32dd and wore a size 2 out and still had some room to fill in the top.

Great Bachelorette Dress!

Definitely need boobs for this dress. I could have worn a size 6 but I felt like I needed it to be extra tight in the bust area to keep me in since you can't wear a bra with this dress. The dress is tight so not very forgiving in the tummy area. Plus it's hard to wear some types of spanx because everything shows through. Lots of compliments though. Great party dress overall!

Meh....

I really wanted this dress to work....unfortunately my 34B's could not fill it out enough & it still showed side-boob. It fit great everywhere else except the chest.
