Beautiful dress!
The dress was beautiful. The top was slightly big, I ordered a 6L. Being 5'9, with a 3 inch heel the dress was just right. I also added a belt for definition around the waste line. Classic dress, complements all night!

Beautiful and extremely comfortable
Straps are wide enough for a regular bra, the pockets are roomy, and the R length was just right with very low heels/flat shoes for my height (5'4"). I've rented ML Monique Lhuillier dresses before, and they are always very elegant, and of very good quality.

Stylist Review!
The Bordeaux Satin Stripe Gown is a great option for a formal event! ML Monique Lhuillier provided the perfect element of surprise with pockets! Running true to size with a back zipper, we recommend sizing up for your backup. With the open back, a strapless bra is best for A - C cup sizes. The fabric has no stretch in the waist area and hits floor length. Pair with a great clutch and heels for the night out!

SO COMFY! Wish I owned this dress!!! You won't regret renting this!!
Wow. I got compliments all night long!! This dress has pockets. It was so comfy!!!!! It was slightly wrinkled from packaging, but after hanging it up they fell right out. I'm 5'9 and wore pretty flat boots and it was an amazing length. I've rented so many dresses from RTR and this was one of my favorites. I seriously did not want to sent it back! I would be careful if one thing. The 10l came in ripped in the back, so it seems like the fabric is somewhat fragile. I wore the 12 so it wasn't a concern and I was just careful when sitting down. I would rent this again in a heartbeat.

My sizing is similar to yours, and I have this rented for an event in January - curious to know if you wore a regular bra with this dress, and if so, whether it showed in the back at all? Thanks!

Amazing dress!
I absolutely loved this dress and got so many compliments on it all night! I wore this to a December wedding and it was perfect. I would definitely rent again and wish I owned. It was so comfortable and the pockets were amazing.

Absolutely perfect!
This dress is a perfect fit. I'm 5'8" and wore 4 inch heels so I ordered a long. It was exactly the right length. I got compliments all night long.

This dress was beautiful, but I did not wear it.
Gorgeous dress, well-made, nicely lined and it has pockets!! Sadly, I did not wear the dress because the top was too big for me. I guess I should have ordered the two, because it was roomy. I usually wear a 4 in dresses but am fairly flat chested and this dress was too loose up top. Also, was roomy around the rib cage as well. I would try it another time in a smaller size.

Perfect holiday formal dress!
Unique cut with very luxurious fabric. Just the right amount of subtle shimmer to be impressive but not overstated. Loved the drop neckline. Got compliments all night saying i looked like a princess. Beautiful high quality dress.

Wow! What a color!
Perfect for a formal event. Not too much of a ball gown but just enough. Fits great.

Nice dress for a formal occasion.
The dress fit well in the waist, but the chest was HUGE. I used a padded sticky bra, but there was still space. I probably could have used cutlets to fix the problem, but was fresh out. The dress was a bit more matronly then I expected from the pictures, but the fabric was luxurious. For reference, I am a 34A, 5'4, athletic build. I wore 4 inch heels and the hem fell nicely to the floor.

This dress is perfect for any formal event! The subtle details are gorgeous!
This dress does fit a bit small and I had to wear the larger size I ordered! The gown is thick and made of very high quality material!

Beautiful and dressy but not over the top.
Beautiful fit and wore great. Was going to a not quite outdoor wedding at the end of December and wanted something long. Wore it with a maroon throw over. Loved the pockets!

Amazing dress!
The dress fit beautifully! I was able to wear it with a regular bra. The pockets were a great touch and I loved being able to have my phone with me throughout the night! A great Dress!!

Beautiful dress!
It was too large for me on the top and a bit too long. I wore high heels and was able to get away with it, but a 0P would have been perfect for my height.

Fabulous and comfortable dress for a fantastic Marine Corps Ball!
This dress was amazing for a few reasons: Although it doesn't look like it in the picture, I was able to wear a regular bra (I bought special stick-ons, but they were unnecessary), length was great with my 3" heels, color was beautiful, and POCKETS! Not only did I feel fabulous in this dress all night, I was also very comfortable.

Great, comfy dress with pockets!
Loved this dress from the flattering top, to the pockets and the perfect length. Was able to wear it with flats to be comfortable and it wasn't too long. Got lots of compliments!

Dress fit event beautifully.
Unfortunately the dress did have some wear in some places, particularly along the seams. It looks as if someone tried to fit into it that was a bit too big for the dress. Kept tripping over strings that had come out at the bottom. Other than that dress was beautiful, fit well, and received many compliments.

Comfortable with Pockets!!
You can't find a more flattering comfortable formal gown, and it has deep pockets!! It fit really well despite my small chest and was comfortable through an entire military ball. And I got SO many compliments!
