Dress was beautiful and was a hit, though it runs big and didn't fit as nicely as I had hoped.

The dress is beautiful and although it received many compliments, it didn't fit as nicely as I had hoped. I am busty with smaller hips and butt. My body is usually a 4 while my chest is normally a 6 or 8. I ordered both a 4 and a 6 in the hopes that I could squeeze my boobs into the 4 and it would be tight and sexy. This was not the case; the 4 was no squeeze at all and actually kept falling from the top!! Definitely runs large!! One plus tho is that there is extra room in the hip area so it gave the illusion of hips without looking like droopy extra material. It is flattering for those who are slim like me or it has extra give for those blessed with a round bottom.

Love the color

I rented the dress for a beach weekend but the rain forced us to cancel the trip. It would have been perfect for dinner after a day in the sun.

Didn't fit well in the hips.

It seems like this dress was made for a person with a pear shape. I'm slightly curvy but my hips were swimming in this dress. The leg cut also makes it bunch up. Also the slit makes the tag very visible.

I received so many compliments! I felt gorgeous and the dress was perfect!

I ordered both an 8 and 10 for an early morning formal wedding. I was stuck trying to figure out what to wear to a wedding that early but keep it formal enough for the brides wishes and I saw this dress! The bride also requested we wear spring colors and this dress was the perfect choice! It felt very well, hugged in all the right places, and the fabric was great! Everyone complimented me on the color and dress fit! I felt beautiful! I definitely recommend this dress. One reviewer said that she couldn't wear spanx under, I was actually able to wear mine with no problem.

VERY yellow. And SMALL in hips

As another reviewer stated, this dress is VERY yellow. It's shockingly yellow. It's a super saturated color and isn't exactly as depicted in the photo. I would have still worn it, however it ran incredibly small in the hips. I wear a size 6 every day of the week, and this dress fit in the bust and waist, but was stretched across the hips in a very unflattering manner. Almost like the hips were a size - or two - smaller than the rest of the dress. I was unable to wear it to my event. If you are hippy at all, then this is not the dress for you. Would probably look great on someone who has a straighter figure. The fabric was divine and has some stretch to it.

Lovely color - weird fit

Color is gorgeous and material feels expensive. The zero fit everywhere except for the waist which had a lot of extra fabric - especially in the back. Disappointing but definitely listen to the reviews about the baggy waist.

Color is much more intense in person

I wound up not wearing it. The yellow in real life is like traffic light yellow not the sunshine yellow I was hoping for. The size 12 has a bit of thread tearing at the slit. Overall pretty dress but SUPER BRIGHT

Accentuates all the right places

I really loved this dress but ended up wearing a different dress for the occasion I rented it for. The yellow is slightly more orange in person, I feel like online it looks a little pastel. The only issue I had was with the midsection area, I have a pretty small waist so it was bunch-y in this area.

This dress showcases every curve! I usually don't go for yellow...neutrals are my safety net! But this yellow was gorgeous! If you're not opposed to tanning, fake bake once before!

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 :)

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Fit me perfectly and received so many compliments!

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.

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.

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

SAY "YES" TO THIS DRESS!!!

This dress definitely had the WOW factor I was looking for! I felt so fabulous all night, and I am STILL receiving compliments even though the event is over! I rented a size 2 because the 0 wasn't available. I normally wear a size 2 but recently lost some weight so it was a little large on me. It looked great but I had to pull it up throughout the night and it would twist on my body as I danced the night away, so there were times I found myself "readjusting". Overall this dress made me feel beyond amazing even though it wasn't a perfect fit for me!! JUST SAY YES TO THIS DRESS!!!!

The fit was incredibly flattering! One thing that confirmed this dress, was looking through the pictures of previous wearers. Everyone had a different body shape but everyone looked fantastic! I didn't want to give it back! (But I did! :) )

The compliments !!!

The dress is beautiful. All of my girlfriends asked if they could borrow it! I felt sexy and bright but the material is a little unforgiving. Be prepared to wear seamless or no underwear. Overall, I felt confident in it- but if you are not used to wearing clothes that are very fitting , get one size up. 5 stars though !

Standout dress

I wore this to my friend's wedding rehearsal dinner in New Orleans. The dress does stretch slightly...but be prepared to size up. I didn't wear a bra and I had to buy shorter spanx due to the slit. Beautiful and good quality dress in a standout color.

Perfect for pregnant ladies!

This was by far my favorite RTR rental! I'm currently 8 months pregnant and wore it for my baby shower. For all you pregnant ladies out there looking for a stunning, yet comfortable dress for a party or formal affair this is it! I typically wear a size 6 however, due to the pregnancy I ordered a size 8 and a 10 and ended up using the 10. The fabric is very stretchy which makes it perfect for a bump and comfortable to wear for several hours. Received compliments all day and felt great!

Best dressed!!

The colour is closer to canary than yellow but still stands out. I received so many compliments last night. The top was slightly loose for me but did not take away from the dress.The slit was perfect and the dress was very very comfortable. It's combination of classy & sexy. I wish I owned it. Would definitely recommend renting it!

So many compliments

The fit is perfect - slit is not too high (I'm 5'3"). While the color is definitely more number 2 pencil yellow than it appears in the picture, I still received a ton of compliments. Paired with turquoise earrings, the ensemble was perfect for a beach wedding.

Gorgeous color. You will stand out

Fit well in the bust. The thigh slit is very high, especially when sitting. But the dress length help balance that. I wish the material was a little thicker. It doesn't really hold you in - but because of the thigh slight, you're a little more limited in shaper options. That said everyone loved it and I would rent again.

The color and slit are amazing.

I loved this dress too but felt it was a bit too scandalous with the slit for a rehearsal dinner. It's a stunning dress. You cannot wear spanx with it because the slit goes to high. Would definitely wear to another event soon!

Super comfortable, stand out yellow dress!

Dress color and fit are beautiful! It stretches to fit every curve making it a super flattering dress! The 8 fit snug and the 10 fit big and bunched in certain areas with movement- I went with the 10 because it was more forgiving ;) I was nervous about the slit, never wearing a dress with a slit, but it was super cute and not too high or revealing at all. Overall, it was a great choice for a summer wedding!
