It fit like a glove, but I had room to move--it was not too tight. It was a great dress!
The color is slightly more yellow than I expected, but it looked great with good accessories. I was so comfortable in the dress and received tons of compliments!

Gorgeous fitted dress!
It is very fitted, spanx or no underwear is the way to go. But it's a great look. Color is vibrant. I was honestly in love with the dress from when I picked it out to when I wore it. I was super sad to send it back!

The color looked great on my skin and the material was soft!
Con - the bottom fit a bit weird it was loose for me in the stomach area but fit my hips and top. I had to keep pulling it down... Other than that it was a great dress! Lots of compliments :)

How could you not stand out in yellow? Definitely got a lot of attention!
I am in between sizes 10 and 12 right now. The 10 fit just fine, but was just a little too snug in the torso area. The 12 fit pretty much perfectly, save for the bust being a bit too large, causing me to keep pulling the dress up throughout the night. Otherwise, the color is great for Spring and Summer and I love that thigh slit. This is a pretty perfect dress, in my opinion.

Show stopping color
The fit was like a glove. The material is unforgiving so shape wear is a must if you're concerned about bumps or bulges. But this dress was amazing on! Comfortable - flattering- sexy- and had a touch of high fashion Bc the color and longer cut were differentiators. I had a few people tell me I had the dress of the night - ha! I paired with a muted gold sequined jacket and oversized earrings. It was a hit! Would rent again.

Color was beautiful and perfect for a spring wedding!
Both the 4 & 6 fit, I just felt the 6 was a little more forgiving. The color yellow was beautiful and looked nice even against my fair skin. I would definitely recommend this dress! The slit was high but not outrageous and I was able to sit comfortably. I wore it with cobalt blue heels and earrings for a fun POC.

Worn for crowning ceremony
The color was more of a sunflower yellow in comparison to the picture. The fit was very flattering and the dress definitely made a statement! I would not suggest renting this dress if you need to dance, the slit was not very forgiving in the thigh area.

Amazing dress
This dress is a showstopper. The color and fit is gorgeous. I got endless compliments all night! It does fit a little loose around the hips/stomach, but overall fits true to size!

Bright marigold and beautiful fit!
The material has the perfect stretch and thickness to show off your figure. The color is more marigold than a pure yellow. The slit was high, but the longer length of the dress made me feel more comfortable. I have larger hips, but still opted for the 0 because of how the top fit.

I received many compliments regarding the pretty color of the dress
It ran a little tight and certainly shows everything. Undergarments had to be invisible and seamless otherwise they were front and center. Pretty dress

Nice, but shows a lot
The dress was nice, but the fabric was a little thinner than expected, making it less forgiving. But still comfortable and easy to move in!

Non-stop compliments!
I absolutely LOVE this dress! Not only for the amazing color, but the fit and stretch were perfect for a night of dancing. I wear an 8 in formal dresses and it fit perfectly. I love that this dress is simple, yet the tasteful split gives it a little edge. Definitely an eye catcher!

Beautiful dress!
It runs true to size. For me, it was a little big in the stomach area but other than that it fit perfectly. I recieved a lot of compliments! FYI it might run long if you are shorter. I am 5'9" and it went past my knee.

Great color for a spring wedding got sooooo many compliments
Previous renters must've worn it more fitted. The slit in the front was somewhat unraveled about an inch higher than intended. Not noticeable but made for a higher slit.

Perfect dress
I wish I could just keep this dress. The fit was perfect but I do have a smaller bust and big hips. The slit makes it sexy yet sophisticated. I wore this dress to Prom and definitely stood out. The yellow is much brighter and a darker shade but I think it is better than the picture because you don't have to worry about looking like a bridesmaid.

Stylist Review!
IN LOVE WITH THIS DRESS! It was form-fitting, but in all the right places! I think this dress looks great on hourglass figures because it hugs your curves and the color is so bright and gorgeous! I wore a size 12 in this dress and I normally fit in a size 10 - there is stretch to the fabric, however, I would suggest sizing up for fuller hips because it is very fitted at the waist and hips. Great for any cup size! I am a 36D and this fit comfortably. I also wore SPANX under this dress because of how tight it was but I still loved the fit! Definitely needs to be worn with a strapless bra, or Nu Bra. I am 5'2" and the length of this dress was right around my knee caps - the slit in the leg gives a sexy, elegant look!

Vibrate Yellow
Wore this dress for a wedding this weekend and I loved it! The slit makes the dress easy to move in and it's very comfortable. I got tons of compliments and I would definitely wear this dress again. The color is a lot brighter in real life - almost like a canary yellow but that's what I loved the most about it.

Summer wedding and compliments all night!
I rented and wore the 12 because the 10 was all booked. I originally wasn't sure about the split, since I have large hips and even larger thighs, I didn't want to be too leggy at a wedding, so I knew I wanted the 12 definitely. The 10 would have fit much better. Make sure you rent a backup size just in case. The bust was a little big that I had to pin it on both sides. I found the stomach area was loose as well. The dress did shift some because it was loose but I think it still looked great. The color was brighter than I expected but the other reviews were mixed on the color. This dress is simple but sexy.

Fun yellow dress!
I was looking for a yellow dress for a spring wedding/reception and this seemed simple enough. I was nervous about the material because you really never know - some of the other reviews made mention of it feeling cheap, but I disagree. It was thick and sucked you in at all the right places. It did run small. I am 5'4 125 lbs, and with RTR, it all depends on the brand. I usually fit between a 2-6 (XS - M). The 4 fit, but the 6 just felt better. My ONLY complaint is that the slit of the size 6 that I wore was already slightly ripped. It wasn't noticeable enough to where I couldn't wear the dress, but it was disappointing. Beautiful color and I would wear again.

Great dress that will turn heads!
If you're considering renting this dress- just do it! I wore it to an outdoor summer wedding and got compliments on it all night long! The color and fun little slit make it stand out for sure. I found the overall fit to be slightly big. I'm typically a 2 or a 4 and they only had a 4 so I had to go with that size. I had to keep pulling up the top throughout the evening. That being said, I still loved the dress, and I would rent it again.

The size 6 fit me perfectly with a strapless bra on underneath. The color is a little brighter in person than it appears online but was really stunning and I received compliments all night. It was very comfortable. The material was thick so it didn't reveal anything you don't want it to.

Amazing dress, got tons of compliments. The slit wasn't as high on me as it was on the model. Very fitted, but comfortable enough to sit, dance, and move around in. Loved it!

Tough for pear shaped gals
Gorgeous bright yellow color (esp w a tan!) but probably better for those with a more narrow figure - I'm hippy so this while the size 0 was tight on the bottom, it was a bit loose in the chest area. I ended up wearing the 0 though because the size 2 was way too large in the chest and wouldn't stay up. I'm 5'1, 114 lbs and it fell mid- calf.

I got a TON of compliments on this dress. I wore it for a June wedding in a marina
Fit: Clings to your every curve, Soft interior, Pros: Its gorgeous and you will look gorgrous in it. It's not see through, doesn't accentuate any bad things, the top does stay up, makes your curves look curvaliscous :) Cons: Fit a little longer than I thought, Slit a little higher than I thought, Slit seam not reinforced, Did bunch in the middle when I sat or moved so that was annoying

This dress has so much potential maybe on a slimmer girl it could be perfect
I loved the color and my husband loved the dress. I wore the size 8 because the 6 you could see the liner of the dress. Overall not a great fit on me. I have worn several jay Godfrey dresses before but this one just didn't fit. The material needed to be thicker.

A wedding hit!
When I first received the dress, I was a little surprised at the color. The yellow is more of a "beauty and the beast" yellow, but in pictures looks a lot lighter. The dress fit true to size and I received compliments all night long! I really felt classy and sexy. Also it was very comfortable to move in, and I didn't spend the night adjusting myself (like other strapless dresses I own) so I would definitely recommend for full bust ladies. I am very pleased with my first rent the runway experience!i

Highlights curves and hips, tight on tummy. I liked that the fabric was thin, helped keep cool in warm weather.

The color was bright but so pretty! I got a lot of compliments on the dress.
I'm 5'8, 140 lbs, 32DD. I usually wear a 4 but order my back up size as a 6. The dress is a little large in the stomach area, so I kind of had to pull the dress down a lot because it would bunch on my stomach. The dress is supposed to sit lower over your chest. It makes the bunching worse if you pull the dress up too high over your chest. Otherwise, the dress was perfect! The slit and color were the perfect amount of sexy and conservative.

The fit was good but not great. The top part of this dress didn't have enough support, and I kept pulling my top up. It's possible that I needed one size smaller perhaps.

Gorgeous summer wedding dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding this summer and I I absolutely loved it! I kept getting comments all night too! At first the color seemed a bit darker yellow than it appears in photos, but outside the true yellow comes through and it's gorgeous. I'm 5'7, 34D and 130 pounds. I am either a 4 or a 6 so I ordered both and ended up wearing the 4 as the 6 had too much extra fabric around my waist and butt. It was comfortable and stayed in place as well. I wore it with a strapless bra. I thought about wearing short spanx underneath but the dress really doesn't need them as it is very figure flattering. This dress is certainly a show stopper! Would absolutely rent again from this designer and in this particular style as well. I loved the slit! It was sexy but still elegant.

SEXY, CLASSY AND COMFORTABLE!!
This dress is absolutely stunning! I wore it to wedding and received compliment all night long! The dress has quite a bit of stretch and is so comfortable. It is fully lined, but I found that even though I am small busted I needed to wear silicone pasties so there was no "peak through." The material is substantial but because of the sunflower color it does show bra lines, panty lines, and nipples if you have a chill, so chose your undergarments correctly :) The slit is high and very sexy so beware when sitting. I will rent this dress again and cannot wait for the next event I need to use RTR services! I will also hope that this dress goes on sale at some point and I can buy it for my wardrobe.

Wore this dress to my sorority's formal, definitely stood out in a positive way!
Loved the color of this dress, but the only downside was that it wasn't the best fit for me. I had to safety pin it to ensure that it wouldn't move. But overall, felt classy and sexy at the same time, loved it.
