Fit me like a glove! I have a 32 DDD chest and it still fit! The length was perfect, I really can't complain at all! Over all extremely happy with this dress!

A chic stunner!
I don't normally like below the knee dresses because of my height but this beautiful blue was so stunning. The sheer detailing around the waist and calves are subtle enough for a wedding (more formal event) but still give the dress a playful look. Highly recommend!

This dress is everything!
I don't even know where to start... The fabric is so stretchy but with an expensive feel. The lining is silky soft. I danced all night in this dress! I normally wear a 2 and the 2 fit like a glove! There is no forgiveness as far as what it shows - stand straight and keep that stomach sucked in! Pros: color is incredible - no one had that color on! Shows off your curves like a champ. So comfortable! The sheer panels were perfect to give the dress a modern feel but it was still conservative (not overly sexy to be inappropriate). The halter top and lower back showed off my arms just right - loved all the lines! Cons: it's a tight pencil skirt all the way to your calves. Be prepared to take small steps. You have to have great posture to pull off this dress. Stand straight and suck that tummy in all night. I have pretty much an A cup so the top was a tiny bit big on me. I absolutely loved this dress - I looked amazing! My favorite rental so far!

Quick response time to needing another size
I am normally a size 4. Ordered 4 and 6. Had an 8 overnighted and it fit perfectly. Definitely runs small. Beautiful color and perfect fit

Great fit, looks sexy but classy, & comfortable, gives a little for any figure
Got this dress for a date and loved it. It fit well on an hourglass figure, hugged me a little in the stomach and behind but it still looked good. The bottom hem of the dress isn't very flexible so I had to take small steps. Was very satisfied with this choice!

Fit perfectly and very comfortable!
I wore this dress to a spring wedding. The color is very bright and stands out. It was also very comfortable, but because it's tight around the knees, it makes it a bit difficult to walk quickly. Aside from that, I would definitely rent again!

Very pretty dress
It was a beautiful dress, and I was complimented on it numerous times. I did find that it was a little tough to wear all night because I had to adjust it and keep pulling it down if I walked anywhere. Really pretty in person, for some reason I couldn't get it to photograph well - Also it is a dress that is not necessarily the most flattering if you're a little self conscious of your mid section

Awesome dress, inexpensive yet makes you look and feel like a million bucks.
Dress was beautiful and fit great. Only minor issue was that the straps were too long for me, so I had to pin them. Easy fix, and looked great. I rented this for a black tie wedding and was a little concerned it wouldn't be fancy enough, but it certainly was. I would definitely rent this again.

Beautiful color!
Loved this dress, the color and fit was beautiful. Not the most comfortable or forgiving though, so keep that in mind depending on the event. It is very fitted through the lower half which restricts walking and dancing somewhat.

Beautiful blue
Great color and fit. Runs true to size and the material was not too thin. It was a little hard to walk in since the bottom was narrow. Overall it was a perfect dress for a wedding.

Va va voom!!
This dress was an absolutely stunning blue color and made from a great fabric that doesn't wrinkle easily. It is a little tight in the legs, so not an ideal dress for venues with stairs or getting low in the dance floor. But overall I loved it and got a lot of compliments throughout the night.

SO MUCH YAS
Let it be known that short girls can rock the hell out of this dress! I'm 5'2 and wore this to my brother-in-law's wedding and it fit like a glove! I see what people are saying in reviews about it being tight at the bottom, but it's also elastic. I did a lot of moving around in this dress and walking up and down stairs and it stayed looking flawless! It hugs you in all of the right spots, but definitely requires some good posture. Got a ton of compliments and I'm pretty sure my husband wants me to rent it again. Loved it!!!

Nice dress
It runs small. I was a little surprised by the lack of dress on the sides of the bust. I ended up wearing a fancy jacket over it because it was a work function.

Comfortable and sexy
Loved the color, fit was snug (I was between the 2 and 4 but wanted room for cake so I opted for the 4), cut was gorgeous and the material was very comfortable. The only issue I had with this dress was that it was a tiny bit big on the top but I got away with it. Probably a better fit for B/C size boobs.

Wish I got to wear this!
I rented two dresses for a friends black tie wedding and ended up choosing the floor length dress. I loved the other dress but did regret my decision because this dress is amazing (and would have been better for dancing). Fits true to size. Can't wait for another wedding weekend so I can re-rent this stunner!

Great color!!
Loved this color! The longer length makes it unique. I usually wear a 4, but the 6 was def snug on me, although very flattering. Fabric was thick and seemed to smooth out any lumps or bumps. (Was able to wear without a bra). I'm 5'6, 130lbs, 34D

Pretty turquoise color!
This dress was more of a teal/turquoise color in person. Right fit yet classy with little stretch to the dress. Got many compliments loved the see through parts of the dress. Length hit a little below the knee but I was still able to dance in it. Wore a strapless bra without issues. I got many compliments loved this dress would rent again!

Great Dress! Fun bright and comfortable
I rented the size 4 and 6 and ended up wearing the size 6. The four fit but was tight and I wanted a little more room for dancing, drinking and eating. The dress was very comfortable and the fabric was thick enough that it did not show under garments underneath. A strapless bra was fine and fully covered by the dress. At 5'9" the length hit right below my knees. I received a lot of compliments throughout the night and the color was a lot of fun! I wore the dress with Sarah Magid sunset earrings from RTR and they matched really well.

Great dress for spring/summer wedding!
Dress fit true to size and I was fine without a bra (36C). I did use spanx for the first time ever underneath to smooth everything out/prevent VPLs, and they worked well with the dress. Great color! Got tons of compliments! Would rent again!

Awesome fit
I normally wear a 10 but unfortunately the 12 was the only one available at the NYC store. However this dress was still amazing just had a slightly looser fit. I felt amazing and looked pretty fantastic. One word of caution to my fellow big chested sisters. I'm a 34DD/32 DDD and I had to tape the heck out of the girls to keep them in. Granted I was wearing a size bigger than normal so that may have been a cause of some of it. I did not wear a bra but used sticky tape to lift and keep everything in place. Overall I'd definitely rent the dress again!

Fit like a glove, color incredibly flattering
Color looked fantastic and really popped, and the cut of the dress was sexy, without being inappropriate (wore it to a formal work event). There was a little extra room in the bust, so I had to wear a strapless bra to ensure the dress fit properly.

Great color!
I wore this dress to a wedding and it was 100 degrees outside! All things considered, it was a breathable dress for being so formal. The sizing was a little small, so I would suggest getting the larger extra size. Additionally, I am 5'1" and it was a little tight at the bottom, but nothing I couldn't make work.

The dress overall was really nice. I ran a little small, I typically wear a six, but wore the 8 . It's super stretchy material so it was perfect for a wedding.

Show stopper
This jay godfree dress was such a hit! The sheer panels on the dress were not too much and the blue is more of a dark teal/aqua. I did need someone to Zion me all the way up. The high neckline was amazing and you don't need a bra with this dress at all! The stretch the dress has is very forgiving and I was able to dance the night away!

Bold summer color!
Loved the color and neckline! The 2 mesh at the rib cage would be great for a cocktail party. So to make the outfit more conservative and work friendly I added a neutral summer wrap sweater, which was needed anyway to combat the corporate air conditioning.

Gorgeous Color!
I loved the beautiful Turquoise color of the dress and the sheer openings, which made the dress sexy! This dress was definitely an attention seeker. Be aware that the dress runs small and is not the best coverage for a fuller bust. I had to keep adjusting the top of the dress to avoid a side boob show. I am 5'4 and the dress hit below my knee and was a tad snug to walk, but it didn't stop me from dancing ALL NIGHT LONG! The dress is lined and I did not need to wear a bra. Spanx cannot be worn because of the see through fabric and the dress is very form fitting. I wore petal tops and a thin thong and lines were not visible. Overall, the dress was gorgeous and I received many compliments.

Photos do not do this color justice!
This dress is a show stopper - lots of stretch, easy to move in. I have a small chest and it was ever so slightly big in that area (I went bra-less). Gorgeous color and hugs you in all the right places!
