When I walked out in my dress and my friends screamed with approval. So worth it!

This was my first time renting from RTR. I normally wear a size 12 in pants so I ordered a 12R and 10L just to be safe. I was concerned about the dress when I received it because RTR was only able to send the 10L. I also have wear a 36DDD so fitting my girls into the dress comfortably was a concern too. Luckily, it fit like a glove. The fabric is thick but stretchy enough that I was able to dance comfortably in it all night. I received so many compliments throughout the night.

Great for military ball!

This dress is extremely flattering! If you are flat chested like me make sure you also buy a backless strapless bra and some dress tape. I was comfortable all night and got tons of compliments!

Did you wear heels in this picture? I think the regular length would be perfect for me but worried it will be too short

Is this picture with heels? The length would be perfect for me if it is just don't want it to be too short !

I felt sexy and classy at the same time

I'm a 32 DD so the size that fit me all over was a bit snug in the bust but I don't mind the cleavage. The shade of Red was gorgeous; perfect color. Fit like a glove and has a little stretch

Gorgeous Gown!

The dress fit true to size and was a lovely shade of red. A real show-stopper! I got so many compliments throughout the evening :) For those of you on the shorter side, you'll need to wear very high heals (I'm 5'2 and wore 4 inch platform heals to accommodate the length of the dress). But otherwise, I would absolutely recommend this gown!

Belle of the Ball!

I loved this dress! It fit extremely well and I was able to wear a regular bra with the help of some fashion tape. Everyone loved the color and the mesh panel on the side! I'm 5'2 and the length was perfect with a pair of heels. I would definitely rent this again!

Showstopper red

I wish this didn't have cutouts so I could have worn a bra. It was a little big up top but the 4 wouldn't fit my bottom half. Still looked great and got tons of compliments.

It made me break out of my shell ;)

The fit was perfect. I stepped out of my comfort zone with the red. I ordered the backup in the same style but in black. When I tried the red on, I instantly fell in love with it. I didn't even try the black on. I have full bust but I didn't even need to wear a bra which was a plus. You don't find that often, especially in dresses. The dress was long but not to the point where I was tripping over it. I'm short so there's really no way to avoid the length. Overall, this was a great dress. This was my first time using RTR and I definitely will be renting again.

Gorgeous, flattering and well made but side sheer unnecessary and goes unnoticed.

I wore this at a black tie event, I am 5'4 was wearing 3.5 inch heels and think MAYBE I would have been ok with the Short instead of regular. Overall I was so impressed with the dress, it has a gorgeous satin lining. I was very happy with the fact that my 32D fit and did not need to wear a bra with it! Although it would have given me a better looking cleavage. I did try wearing a bra but you would have been able to see it in multiple areas. Anything beyond a D would not really fit though. A note on the side sheer- this does not actually add anything to the dress and I don't think anyone noticed. I would have rather this dress be all red material no sheer. In fact, if you do have a large bust, you run the risk of showing some under boob there. I felt amazing and received many compliments! This is one the cases where I wish RTR gave us the option to buy :)

holiday party dress - maternity version

I rented this for a black tie event and absolutely loved it. It's a beautiful holiday color and the fit was great. At 18 weeks pregnant it had just enough give in the mid-section for my bump while still feeling good and not too tight. I'm short and wore short heels so the length was too long but not terrible. Overall, I recommend this dress. The mermaid cut is fun and different.

Awesome!

Loved this dress! Fit great and was the perfect length for me (I'm 5'7" and wore 3 in wedges so the 4L was great). Material was thick enough and the cut was great, a little revealing in the chest for me, but I got so many compliments on it! Definitely would rent again or buy :)

Beautiful dress, great fit, super sexy color

I wore this to a military dinner and it was perfect. It is snug in the hips (though not in a bad way) and fit like a glove everywhere else. I didn't wear spanx because of the sheer panel on the side, but I didn't mind too much. Overall, a great dress that I would wear again in a heartbeat.

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!

I wore this bad boy for a benefit auction. It's so beautiful, and the color is outstanding in person. The fabric is thicker, so it's incredibly flattering and smooths over any lumps and bumps :) I was also able to wear a regular bra, which was a major plus! I received tons of compliments and I would absolutely rent this dress again. I wish it came in more colors! I ordered a few days prior to my event, so no back up sizes were available. Luckily, the 12 fit, but it was a little large in the chest area (I have a very average bust). Otherwise, absolute perfection! I am barely 5'6, but I wore with flats as even a low 3" heel made the dress slightly too short for my preference. All around stunner!

Strange fit

I really wanted to love this dress, but it had a strange fit. The 2R fit through the bust and waist, but was super tight around the hips and legs. The 4R, on the other hand, fit much better through the hips and legs but was huge in the bust area and had a strange pouch-like fit around the waist. For reference, I am 5'3 and about 130 lbs with an athletic build. I didn't take any pictures and ended up going with my backup dress.

Stunning red dress!

I rented this dress for a military black tie function and loved it. The material is thick and sturdy. Even though there is an illusion cutout on the side, I went ahead and wore a nude bra and there were no issues. It was a bit loose in the stomach, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Otherwise the fit was true to size. I'm glad I ordered the long as it skimmed the floor perfectly with 4 inch heels. Stunning dress!

Compliments all night long!!

This was such a comfortable, sexy and fabulous dress. Being 23 weeks pregnant I chose my normal size 2 and sized up to a 4. The size 4 was perfect! The fabric was stretchy and gave way for my bump without looking weird or pulling fabric. It hugged my curves in all the right ways. I felt amazing and received so many compliments!

Stunning red

Overall a beautiful classic gown. It did run large in the bust and belly/hips. I received lots of compliments in this dress and I felt really good in it. I was very pleased that it was a good length, usually dresses are much too long for me and this one worked perfectly with 4in heels.

Fabulous but a bit too revealing

I fell in love with this dress, 500%. And my boyfriend loved it ;) But alas, it was a bit too revealing for the event I was attending! Excellent fit, but not a lot of stretch. Will definitely need fashion tape for this one! Could have used a 12L with the 3in heels I wanted to wear. Perhaps some other time this dress will make it out on a grand adventure!

Great red dress

I rented this dress for a charity gala and received a lot of compliments. It is a lovely, vibrant shade of red. I had fun wearing it. This dress runs on the large side. My "regular" size is a 2 however I recently had a baby am still working on losing the baby weight. I also have a larger bra size due to nursing. (My weight and bra size notes above reflect my current, post-baby state.) I ordered the 2 and the 4. I wasn't sure if I would fit into my regular size yet, but the 2 actually fit well everywhere except for being a little large on the top. The straps were loose but it worked out fine for the evening. If I were back to my pre-baby state, my regular size 2 would have been too big, especially on top. I wore 4 inch heels and the dress was just barely off the floor. The fabric is good quality. It has some hold and support to it. I was comfortable all night. Overall, it was great for the event!

Gorgeous dress hugged my curves perfectly!

I absolutely loved this dress. The bottom half fit absolutely perfectly! I had to make some adjustments to the top because it was a little loose on my chest and waist. The waist is meant to be loose I believe, it made it easier when adjusting the dress to sit/stand. But with a nice push up bra, and a few specially placed safety pins it stayed in place all night! I wore this to a military ball and it was comfortable to wear through 9 hours of sitting, standing, eating, drinking, dancing and all sorts of in between. I felt beautiful and got many compliments! I would say this would be perfect for someone with a bigger/fuller chest and definitely good for those with an hourglass figure! Also I got the regular length and wore 2 inch heels and the length was perfect! If I were any taller it would have been too short!

Classic and flattering

This dress fit like a glove! I'm self conscious about my stomach and never thought I could wear a mermaid cut. This gown was made of thick fabric and had just a little extra room in the midsection so it was forgiving. Form fitting and very flattering. I am 5' and had to wear 6'' heels and had to do a temp hem of an inch. I wanted to buy this dress!!

Stunning dress, but beware the underwear challenge!

This dress fit true to size. However, it was difficult to wear ANYTHING underneath it! The sheer panel takes up almost your entire torso from hips to bra line. My spanx and panties both showed so that was a constant challenge. I found it very comfortable to wear but the trumpet/mermaid did restrict my dance moves. All in all if you want a dress to stand and look pretty in and not dance or sit then this will look gorgeous. I would give it 5 stars if it didn't have the sheer panel because it really is a show stopper!

Absolutely perfect for a Ball

The color is a unique red -- bright but not orangey at all. The color complimented my red/brown hair, and in fact several people stopped me to say so at the event. I wore this to my law school's Barristers Ball. The cut of the v neck was low enough to show off cleavage but not so low that I felt over exposed. I wore a push up bra that was not even red colored but the dress stayed secured in place enough to consistently hide the bra when I used a strip of fashion tape on each side of the v neck. The mesh cut out on the side didn't show enough of my bra that wearing one was a problem there either. The mermaid shape of the dress is really a wow. I have a little left over baby fat from having two children, and this dress didn't show any of it. It has a lining and is thick enough that it is slimming. I recommend it!

I loved this Jay Godfrey mermaid dress

I'm 5'3 - 130 I ordered both 4R and 6R both fit but the 6 had better comfort . The length of the dress was perfect with my 4 inch heels . Got a lot of compliments and didn't have to do any adjusting through the evening . Bust size is 36C and the bust was slightly tight with a bra , wearing petals or a thin bra worked

"RED IS YOUR COLOR!"

This dress was absolutely gorgeous. It fits very true to size, but it is form fitting and will show your curves. You can't wear spanx or slim wear with it due to the sheer portion on the right side. I'm usually a size 4, but I decided to wear the 6 so I would have some more room and not be so uncomfortable sitting for long periods of time, eating, and dancing. I'm definitely pear shaped, so my bottom and hips are larger than my chest, which it usually makes things a little more difficult for things to fit. I had to wear a nice thick bra, but it worked out fine. Overall, I got a LOT of compliments on this dress. If you want to stand out a bit, it will do it!

STUNNING dress

Fits the to size- hugs curves in all the right places. Dust from the floor and other things like that seemed to not even touch the dress- it was essentially stain proof. I felt like a celebrity with the weight of the dress and how good I felt. I received compliments all night. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I'm a RTR believer now!!!

I felt so confident I felt like I was Marylin Monroe haha

Fit very well, accentuated my hips and since I went with the size up It didn't hug my belly tight. The color was so elegant and mature. The neckline cut was sort of low, so definitely meant for girls with larger bra sizes. Otherwise this dress was amazing and I received so many compliments. Wish I owned it!!!

Beautiful red

This dress has the potential of being fabulous given the right body type. I recommend this dress for those that have an ample chest. My bra size is 32C, and the top was too big. I couldn't wear a bra bc of the sheer side nor could I wear spanx. The dress fit around my straight hips beautifully and the flare was wonderful! I should have gone down yet one more size to have more of a fitted look up top. I believe my hips would have still fit one size down.

This dress was stunning! Very classy and captures curves just right.

The only problem I had was my bra showing through the mesh part of the dress. Other than that it's true to size, the material is good quality so it's comfortable, and the top works without a bra and I'm pretty small up top-so a push up bra does help. The dress itself is classy yet very alluring.

Lady in red!

This dress fits beautifully. As stated in previous reviews, your bra will show a bit and any type of "control" undergarment you may want to wear really can't be worn because of the mesh side. I would suggest a backless bra. I'm 5'4 and the length was great. The straps were a drop big as well but it doesn't ruin the look of the dress.

Compliments

This was my first RTR purchase. I rented this dress instead of the one I really wanted because I am 5"3 and this dress came in petite. The dress is made very well and has nice thick no cheap material. I almost did not wear it because the stomach area was a bit baggy. You can not tell in this picture. Once I tried the dress on with shoes it looked much better. I fluctuate between 112-115lbs and am 5'3" barefoot this dress looks frumpy on me, with heels it is much better. I did receive numerous compliments, but the dress did not fit me as I thought it would. Hope this helps.

Lady in tailored-fit Red!

This is the second time I rented a Jay Godfrey design and I'll do it again! The material is strong and very flattering as is the cut and style. Their sizes are always consistent and the length perfect! I went to a formal black tie fundraiser and I received many looks and compliments! the topper was how comfortable it was! Love love love!

Not so good

Unfortunately I was unable to wear this dress. The photos looked beautiful, but when I put the dress on it was tight everywhere except for the tummy (where it was extremely baggy). I even went up a size to see if that would change the overall fit, but it did not. It may just be my body type, as I have a very small waist and larger hips, but I was very disappointed.
