Sexy but classy
I wore this to a cocktail party at my kids school. I felt very pretty- got multiple compliments. It's very fitted (not forgiving if you have a bigger midsection- spanks are helpful). There is a small sheer part , but it's tasteful. Beautiful vibrant color. I stood out in a sea of black dresses.

Loved it!!!
Dress was very comfortable. Bra required--I used a stick-on bra. Only problem was that there was no slit at bottom of dress, so it restricted my taking big steps and climbing stairs quickly--this wasn't too much of a bother, though. The color is a true peacock blue. Fabric is great quality. Material is pretty stretchy. All around great pick!!!

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!

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.

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.

Flattering cut
I liked this dress enough. The color is slightly more teal than the picture lets on. I thought it was flattering but would be more suited to someone with a little more booty than myself. It was also a little long for my frame which made it difficult to walk and the sheer panel showed my knee caps which was not the best place to hit.

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!

Very comfortable
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.

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.

Its a great dress. I got a lot of compliments. Great color.
It hugs your waist and hips so spanx. The bottom is tight so walking upstairs is difficult.

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.

Such a fabulous and flattering dress!
I wore this in February for my 35th birthday night out: fancy dinner & cocktails downtown with girlfriends and dancing afterwards! I felt fantastic and it's incredibly flattering. Gorgeous color.

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!

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!

it was really pretty - but really large so i could not wear it. I usually wear a 2 in dresses, but this fit more like a 6 I would say.

Beautiful hue but tight!
The size I wanted wasn't available and I was sent an alternative dress, but they sent me the back up size of this anyway. The color and fabric is beautiful, but the 10 was too tight on my. This wasn't zipped up all the way in the back and there's no way I could have sat down.

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.

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!

I loved this dress!
Gorgeous dress and color. I thought it was really comfortable and allowed me to go bra-less which is a plus for me. Its tight and a bit restrictive around the knees but honestly didnt bother me. I would go a size up with this dress for sure though.

It was very comfortable to in in all day and just the right amount of upscale to be a bit fancier. This was a good dress since the even was outside so not having sleeves was necessary.

Felt sophisticated and sleek, a grown up woman.
I felt great in this dress. It's true that it is a little hard walk (quickly) in, but it has more stretch than I was expecting from the other reviews. Danced all night just fine! Great quality and it was in great shape. Did not need ironing. Wish the length was a tad shorter. Hit my legs at not the most ideal spot.

Great dress for professional school formal
Great dress in a beautiful color (darker than expected but I loved it). Very form-fitting (undergarments were a no-go) but fabric is substantial and supportive. Conservative but the sheer parts added a bit of interest. Got lots of compliments and would definitely recommend! Size 2 fit perfectly (5'5", 127lbs, 34C, hourglass/athletic figure). Wish I had gotten a better picture than this one that doesn't really do it justice.

Fit like a glove and a great choice for an outdoor spring wedding! The sheerness wasn't over the top but gave it a unique twist. Easy to move and dance in and didn't wrinkle!

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

I received many compliments on this dress. The color and style were a great match. The dress fit well, the bottom band was a little bit tight so not ideal for a ton of movement but I was still able to dance the night away.

The color of this dress was so perfect. Vibrant and fun but still classy for nighttime affair.
I marked that the dress runs true to size because it was close, but it might have run just a bit small. The color of the dress is beautiful and looked perfect at an evening affair where I didn't want to wear my usual all black. Since I'm a little on the short side, the dress cut a little lower on my legs than I would have liked, but it still looked great! This was a big change from my usual style and overall I was pleased!

This dress made me feel sexy and confident, my husband loved it!
It fit great, but is probably better for women with a B or C cup. I was able to wear a low back bra with it to give "the girls" a boost, but the material is thick enough that you could go without. The color was a little deeper than pictured, but it was very flattering on my skin tone. It is very fitted, but stretchy enough to move with you. Not the best dress for lots of dancing or stairs, but worth it as I felt incredible in it. I would definitely rent again!

Perfect!
This was my first rental - and to be honest, I was super nervous - but when both dresses arrived, I was so excited. Having both sizes as an option is huge. The Dress -- gorgeous. The Color -- more of a peacock blue than the picture. The Fit -- true to size - I am normally a 4 - got the 6 as an extra - and I wore the 4. It fit perfect. Price -- did not break the bank. It was totally worth every penny. I received so many compliments about it, and people were shocked to hear it was from Rent The Runway. I cannot wait for the next event I have - so I can rent again.
