Beautiful dress-runs large.

Pros: Color Structure Material Cons: Runs large (I am true size 0, small bust and the bust area would not stay up. The dress swallowed me completely. Unfortunately bc this dress has such great structure if it is not form fitting to your body it looks extremely sloppy.)

Work Christmas party

A little too long on me, I'm 5'3. Overall good fit. Thick material. Limited arm movement on the side of the draping, but comfortable enough for dancing all night.

Christmas glam

Lovely figure hugging detailed dress - came with the tags on. A zillion compliments. Can't really wear spanks and you can see panty line. So if you're insecure about your jiggly bits pass... I had my jiggly bits unrestrained and still felt sexy. Belly button outline and all. If you're nervous don't be. It's a stunning dress.

Sexy

Tight across shoulders because of athletic figure and I am busty. The dress limited my arm movements so this is NOT good for dancing but perfect for socializing at a Christmas party. I received a lot of compliments No stretch in the dress but it wasn't tight and it fit without being too loose in the hips and waist I was comfortable

Stands out

I normally go for 10s and 12s, but ended up renting a 14R. The dress does run small, so size up. There is no give/stretch in the material. It is a beautiful, vibrant red and it definitely stands out in a crowd!

Not a forgiving dress.

The color was great. But. It was tight on my chest and the slit was really high. Since the slit was so high you can't wear long shape-wear but I needed it since the color and fabric showed every imperfection and dimple.

Great dress, lots of compliments.

It took me a hot second to figure out exactly where to wear the straps and the position of the slit. It's off in the pic. It should be on the left leg, not down the middle but I figured it out, haha.

Super unique! Compliments from people all night long

So I read that this dress runs quite small so I rented a size 14, I normally wear a 10/12. The 12 might have fit though the fabric has some stretch. The dress is beautiful, great fabric and fit, color is stunning. Felt sexy but classy. Yes the slit comes up high on the leg, but it was still very classy. Would rent again!

Perfect dress for an outside wedding!

The dress is true to size. The only con was the arm area had no give.

I wasn't able to wear the dress😞

Absolutely beautiful dress, however, I wasn't able to wear it because the top was too small. Could zip it all except the top couple of inches. Definitely order a size up!!!

Beautiful dress

I’m usually a size 4 or 6. I’m 5’2” 140lbs Small waist large bust This dress was so beautiful! The 6 fit but was a little tight, I think 8 would have been perfect but they were out of the size. I asked for them to overnight a 10. The 10 was a bit loose in bust area but overall I was happy with the fit. Although I know the 8 would have been perfect. I’d def rent again. So many compliments on this dress!

The color is fantastic. I loved the top.

It is definitely a dress you need to stand up straight in! I am 5 9 and the slit came up high on my leg (also have to sit with legs crossed). I am glad I got the backup size in the larger size since my normal size felt a little snug and I wanted to ensure I had the extra room in case I didn't stand up straight.

Beautiful dress. I’m 5’5” and weigh 110 lbs and typically wear a zero, couldn’t wear

It was too tight in the midsection and showed the indentation of my belly button which is so unflattering. Couldn’t wear it.

Stylist Review

This dress by Jay Godfrey runs true to size so we recommend getting your usual size as your primary and going one size up for the backup size. There is comfortable room throughout the midsection as well as comfortable room for the hips. This style is great for any cup size and can be worn with a strapless bra. In regards to length, it hits me just below the knee. This dress can be paired with dainty, delicate jewelry pieces and a pair of black or nude heels.

Show Stopper in Red!

I got a million compliments on this dress! I felt like I was pulled from an old Hollywood movie set. I wore it to a cocktail party. dress code specifically said “rebel against the little black dress” and it was perfect for it! My girlfriend wore a dress in sunflower yellow and we matched perfectly.

1 out of 3 red dresses in a sea of black at a 460 person gala

Wore this to a benefit gala. I am 5'3" and currently 118 and usually wear a size 2, ordered a size 2 and 4, wore a 4. B/c of my height I would have liked the dress to be a bit shorter, but that's always the issue with the rent the runway dresses, the designer lengths are for someone more like 5'7." Very comfortable. Recommend wearing hair up to show the off the shoulder detail.

Beautiful dress, fits great!

This dress is very flattering! I wore it to a work cocktail party and it was a standout success. It fits very well, I ordered the 8 and the 10 and the 8 was too tight but the 10 was perfect.

amazing quality

This dress is amazing quality, material is thick but not overly heavy. The slit is the perfect height so you don't show too much when sitting down. The straps on the arms were too constricting for me so I didn't wear it but if it was an event where i'd be sitting a lot then it would have been perfect.
