Beautiful dress and color!
I've never received so many complements on a dress! It was a little snug and does show your stomach no matter what, but the dress gave me so much confidence! Fabric was stretchy, which made it easier to dance. Definitely recommend!

This was my first RTR experience and I loved it !!
I rented this dress for my afternoon bridal shower and kept it on for a wedding I attended later that same evening. I was shocked by how many compliments I received! The top of the dress stays up with little effort and the material is stretchy so I felt free to move around and dance. I usually wear a 4, but looking at some of the pictures posted by others, it seemed like a 2 would fit me. I ordered both and ended up wearing the 2. The 4 fit just fine, but the 2 was a bit more form fitting, so I went with that. Don't hesitate to get this dress. You'll love it !

I truly felt like a modern day Belle!!
Overall, I was completely satisfied with this dress. I was skeptical at first because I am bigger busted and have a heavier midsection. The dress ran true to size and luckily I was able to wear spanx and a strapless bra to keep everything in. I reveieved so many compliments on the color and style of the dress. It was a little longer than I expected but suitable for the occasion. This is my third time using RTR, I love the rental experience!

Lots of compliments. The bust and shoulder straps stayed put with no need to adjust all night.
Did need to pull down the bottom of the dress to adjust after sitting down. Snug fit, which meant there was VPL. Plan accordingly!

Perfect Fit and Color
This was a stunning dress, it was classy and the color just stood out. Many compliments! Fit was true to size, I like that you can wear the sleeves on shoulder, off shoulder or just in between. I really loved it and will rent again

Lots of complements. The color was stunning!
Very snug dress and well constructed. Not once did I have to pull up the top the whole night. (even while dancing!) beening so tight, I did use a body suit to help smooth out things, so if you don't like fitted dresses, this won't be for you. The color is bright! Which I loved, but would maybe not look good on everyone so be wary. The yellow is very very yellow. Overall, loved the look and was extremely comfortable.

So many compliments! Absolutely recommend!
This dress was amazing! I wore it for an outdoor wedding in Lake Tahoe and received so many compliments on the color and fit. The dress is very formfitting, but with a flattering cut. It has a little boning to keep it from falling down and stretch for a little room with dinner and dancing. I rented both a size 6 and 8, and wore the 6. I paired it with cobalt blue earrings and shoes for a perfect extra pop and my boyfriend coordinated with a yellow and blue tie. I loved this dress so much that I may actually rent it again for another event!

I wore this for an outdoor summer wedding! The sleeves kept me out of the running for the bouquet toss, but that's A-OK! I want to rent this dress over and over again!

THE PERFECT DRESS
Let's first talk about how gorgeous the color is...it was absolutely stunning against my skin-tone. The dress is very very comfortable and has stretch to it. It was the perfect dress for a summer wedding. Received several compliments on the dress that evening. Please don't hesitate to order this dress, you won't regret it!!

Absolutely perfect!
I LOVED this rental! It is form fitting and classy which is a perfect combination. I got a TON of compliments on it. I am a 36D and went with a sticky bra and had no issues. The sleeves moved around a little but I think that's expected. I would totally recommend!

The pretty yellow color and ruffle set this dress apart from the other dresses at the event.
Absolutely loved this dress! It is form fitting but the fabric has some "give" to it so it was very comfortable.

Best for a summer wedding. The color was vibrant and stood out. Was getting complimented all night!
I'm 6ft and it hit me at the knee. There were some wrinkles so I wore spanx to make it lay better. Fit true to size - snug so if anything, go up in size.

Do yourself a favor and rent this dress!!
This dress is simply amazing! I felt like a million bucks and received sooo many compliments. It runs slightly large, but I liked that because then I didn't need spanks. It hugged all the right places, and the sleeves easily stayed in place. No tugging on the dress all night either! Positively perfect! This is hands down my favorite RTR rental ever, and I've had some great ones!

I wore this dress to a country club wedding. It was tight, but pure stretch so was really comfortable. Got a TON of compliments on the dress - although it's a lot brighter than you expect in the picture, so be prepared for that. I would rent again!

Loved this dress, fits true to size. Definitely a show stopper!
I am typically an 8 but the only size they had left for my weekend was a 10, so I took a gamble. It was a little loose in the bust/ribs but fit everywhere else perfectly! I liked that it was not super tight in my stomach area. I was able to move and dance too! This dress is an absolute show stopper and you will definitely get compliments all night long!

So many compliments!
I rented this for a wedding and absolutely loved it. To me it seemed like the color was a bit more muted that the picture - more of a buttercup color. But def yellow so you need to like color for this dress! I got complimented by strangers on this. The length was more tea length for me as I am short. The material is a bit stretchy so hugs curves but shows everything - had to wear short-style spanx to not get VPL. One caveat - you cannot really raise you arms so dancing was a bit interesting - my husband kept calling my dancing "t-rex moves!" But other than that, loved this!

Gorgeous color and stunning dress!
This canary yellow dress could stop traffic and really lit up the night when I wore it to a friend's wedding. The fit was perfect; I did not wear it off the shoulder as I found that wearing the straps up looked better on me. I wish I could keep this dress and was so sad to return it. Another stunning dress by Jay Godfrey!

I received tons of compliments, the color was great for a summer wedding!
The dress is structured which is great but it is very see-through when it comes to underwear lines and or imperfections your legs might have. I wore a pair of long short spanxs to fix that problem. Overall I loved the dress and the way it made me feel in it!

Lemonade Vibes
This is probably my most favorite dress I've ever worn aside from my wedding dress. Made me look nice and tan, super super comfy, and I had zero issues with it staying in place. The fabric is stretchy which was so ideal. Did not want to return!!

Such a great color! My favorite RTR dress so far!
Such a great color! I've never received so many compliments on a dress before. The 2 fit comfortably but could've been a little tighter through the hips. I'm not sure how the 0 would've fit since I ordered the 4 as my backup size. Love this dress so much that I'm thinking about buying it. One thing to note, it's hard to dance with the off-the-shoulder sleeves, but you can wear it as a strapless dress; it stayed up for me.

Comfortable dress and received so many compliments all night!
The material was slightly stretchy which allowed me to move easily all night. The arm straps aren't too tight or too loose either so my arms felt free too. I fell in love with this dress and received so many compliments throughout the night.

Favorite rental yet!
This dress is glorious. Beautiful, unforgettable color, flattering and feminine. And very, very comfortable. I wish I had sized down for my back up size; I am definitely a pear and ran into my typical problem--it fit well on the bottom half but was a touch too big on the top. I wish I could have tried one size smaller with shapewear. I also wish I didn't have tan lines! Oh well--got lots of compliments anyway and my husband was mesmerized!

Won "Best Dressed" at Wedding
This dress is gorgeous. People couldn't stop coming up and telling me how great it was. The color was vibrant, it fit the body fantastically, and showed a little skin while staying pretty modest. I loved wearing it and felt so unique at the wedding.

Worth the risk!
I received so many compliments with this bold, super fun, yet still elegant dress. The top was a little big but I used safety pins at the back and no one noticed them. Loved the stretch and longer past the knee length. Paired it with nude sandals because the dress is the stand out!

Total showstopper!!
This dress is amazing!! Form-fitting without being clingy. I did end up wearing spanx underneath just to make sure everything stayed nice and smooth after dinner and drinks. If you are shorter than 5'3", this dress might hit you at an awkward point but it was just right for my height. It would also look amazing on taller ladies as well! The color...oh the color is incredible!! The yellow is nice and bright - perfect for a summer wedding!! I didn't want to send it back!
