Gorgeous fabric and neckline; not slimming.
The print and fabric are stunning; the colors are better in person than on the website; and the neckline is extremely flattering. The draping over the hips adds a bit of girth, and the fabric is thick so this is not a dress for summer.

Elegant, but not for full busts...
Despite being listed in the category for "Full Bust," there is not ample room for an actual full bust. I usually wear size 6, and the dress fit me at the waist and hips, but barely zipped over my chest, even without a bra. I am a size 38E. There is no stretch, either. Otherwise, the dress is lovely, with an elegant pattern that isn't too showy. It hit me right at the knee.

Tasteful, Flattering Dress
I wore this dress to a cousin's wedding and got tons of compliments on it. The layered fabric took a little adjusting to get it to lay in a way that wasn't bunching or abstract, but I thought it added a neat flair to the dress once I got it in the right place. The size 2 was a teensy bit snug but not uncomfortable (for sitting, standing, or dancing!) - the size 4 seemed baggy so I went with the 2. The zipper was REALLY tough but was helped with a little rub of zipper wax. The dress seemed well-worn, as a few of the interior seams (that no one could see but me) were a bit frayed, and there was a loose thread here and there, but overall it still looked great. It hugged my curves and was a really flattering dress. I'm 5'4" and it hit me right at the knee.

Beautiful fabric and fit for a cocktail hour work event.
Lela Rose is a favorite brand for the gorgeous fabric and flawless fit and this dress did not disappoint in those regards. Elements of the fabric have just a little shimmer making the dress party-perfect, but not too dressy. This is a dress I wouldn't mind having in my closet for a night out or a performance as well. Unfortunately, the dress I rented was probably ready to retire the runway as the stitching around the zipper had come loose, the hem in front stuck out a bit (perhaps from too much mending/drycleaning), and there was a hint of a BO smell that only surfaced after I was in it about 30 minutes and it became body-temperature. Assuming that was just an issue with the dress I had, I would definitely recommend the dress.

I felt comfortable and at ease in this flattering dress!
All things considered - my height & weight as compared to my 36 bra band - the LelaRose Monet Garden Dress fit very true to size. It hit me at the narrow part of the leg just under the knee and I thought it was a flattering & demure length; of course, you could shorten it w/hem tape if you prefer. There are terrific little bra strap holders and I taped the neckline of the dress to my bra - my normal everyday bra - so it wouldn't show if I leaned forward. Perfect. The colors shown are accurate. I reached a little beyond my comfort zone and, for a noon wedding luncheon at a restaurant, I was perfectly dressed. I wore it with smashing purple suede pumps - the black in the dress is not quite black enough to match with other blacks - and the Ella Carter Kai earrings; a fine wool crepe blazer took care of the chill and it worked nicely with the ruched sheath. I gave the dress only four stars because it was a bit frayed around the cap sleeves - loved the cap sleeves - and there were lots of long threads. Needless to say, thanks again to the two brilliant women who created RTR, so we can all dress and feel like a million bucks!

Best kept secret on RTR!
I was hesitant to rent this dress as there weren't too many reviews for it - I am so glad I took the chance. I can't wait to rent this dress again. I rented it for a work event and fell in love. It's a bit on the longer side for us tall girls which is nice. The fit is amazing - for busty girls with hips - it tucks and pulls in all the right places. There is a lot of fabric but I felt so comfortable in the this dress. The fabric is also quite heavy so would not be a good choice for a hot summer day but perfect for a cooler fall event. The color is also so nice - purples and golds. Got compliments all day long. Rent. This. Dress.

Beautiful dress
Really pretty draping/folds on the chest and hips. A very classic silhouette, but the print an draping details make it gorgeous.

Gorgeous dress just need the right body type for it.
I loved the dress, but I'm too short for it because on me it becomes a tea length dress. Also I'm not busty enough so while a size 2 fit me quite snug around the waist it boxed out from my bust. If you're an hourglass shape this dress would be perfect I think.

I didn't wear it, fit oddly in the bust area and a bit too tight
I didn't wear this, it had an odd fit in the bust, (probably better on a smaller bust) also felt to tight through out. GO a size up for your back up!

High quality dress, but not my fave rental
The overall fit of this dress is small. The folds in the front are a little bit awkward how they lay. maybe if I had ironed it or something it would have laid more flat and looked better. it was a nice dress for the event but not much of a showstopper.

My first visit to England!
I loved this dress, and felt fabulous wearing it. But, once I saw the photos, I felt like the detailing in the middle had been quite unflattering. Probably not the best choice for curvier broads.

Funny you say it didn't look good in photos. I think you look great in this photo. The dress is very slimming and I unless you put the wrong number down for your weight , it is definitely very flattering to you.

Just enough glamor
I wore this dress to a cocktail charity event and felt like the loveliest woman in the room! This dress was exactly as pictured with one exception. I am busty, 36D, and the neckline looked very different on me than it does on the model. Lots of cleavage! My husband didn't mind though! The fit was amazing and I am curvy, the fabric had just the right amount of give. I can see it looking lovely also on a figure less so, like the model pictured. Loved the colors and the bit of shimmer. I wore it with the necklace pictured and while it was lovely and did pair well with the dress, it was a bit over the top for me personally because of the aforementioned cleavage issue but overall I was delighted.

Classy and fun
Dress fits well, a tad bit loose in the waste, so would size down if you needed to.

New client meeting and filming for promo video
Awesome, stretchy, shimmery fabric. Super-confortable yet glamorous. Needed to go from day (with a jacket) to night (without) seamlessly.
