Stunning, high quality but definitely tight!

What a beautiful, well constructed dress. It fits like a glove but MAN it is tight around the rib cage. No "give" at all, so be prepared! Great for dancing and standing, not so much for sitting. The next size up was too long and too roomy in the waist. Worth it though!

Stand Out

The dress is outstanding quality. The color is beautiful and is very striking in a crowd. I got many compliments. DD cup size was no problem in the dress. I was able to wear a strapless bra and it did not show with the opening in the back. The dress was a little longer than I like. Their are darts in the front that stick out that don't do much for a slimming effect, but it would be great if you want to hide a stomach. I would rent the dress again.

Wanted to love it but didn't

Size and color were right on but the revealing back and tulle chest made it just too slinky to wear to a more formal occasion .

Love this dress!

I rented a 10 since most of the reviews said to size up but the 10 was a little too big in the shoulders/bust. The benefit to this was that i didn't have to unzip or deal with the 6 clips/ buttons every time I had to use the restroom! I don't recommend wearing this dress if there's even a chance it'll be hot for your event. It's very thick material, not what I was expecting, but I highly recommend this dress for a fall or winter event. I would definitely rent this again!

gorgeous blue

This was a backup dress. The sheath style is typically a style that suits my frame, but the fabric was too heavy and didn't sit quite right.

Pretty dress

I'm usually a size 8 but based on the other reviews I went up a size and it fit great. I wore it to my brother in-laws wedding. Great fit, style and was really pretty in pictures. My only complaint was the back had small buttons holding a piece of lace that hides the zipper and they were a bit warn so I had to keep re-buttoning it all night when I sat down.

Wonder if it would be weird if I wore this to EVERY wedding?

First off, let's talk convenience: I had a wedding on the opposite side of the country from home & was traveling for an entire week. Not having to pack a dress, and accessories for traveling was a HUGE benefit! I just had everything shipped to my friends' home, and then dropped it in the mail before coming home & life was good (& my carryon was lighter!)! Now, the dress: LOOOOOOOVE. The absolute most stunning blue ever. SERIOUSLY. I received SO many compliments & nearly all of them mentioned the color. It is also a very flattering fit for a petite girl, with little to no curves, like myself. Length wise: I'm 5'4.5" & it came to just below my knees, which sometimes can make dresses look frumpy or oversized on me. Paired with nice heels (or in my case, wedges Bc we were in a vineyard) & it's perfect, no frumpiness. The dress was a smidge tight in the upper torso area at first (not like I could breathe after pigging out at the reception anyways), but was comfortable enough that I could move, sit, & dance with no worries. If you have a chest, or "normal" rib cage, you may consider the next size up. The sleeves DO hinder raising your arms just a bit, as previously mentioned. And I too had problems keeping the little cover flap on the back snapped. Otherwise, I didn't want to take the dress off & certainly didn't want to return it! Love, love, LOVE it.

Well made dress, but not my favorite

Well crafted, quality piece - beautiful color. A bit more conservative looking on my figure than I imagined (a little longer than I thought, and tailored to add curves to a more straight up and down figure rather than to embrace the curves of my hourglass figure, in my opinion). If I had been going for a more conservative look, I would have been really happy.

Beautiful color...fit like a glove

This dress is a beautiful color. Thick material and pretty details. Fit like a glove so I didn't need a bra because it held everything in and up. You definitely need someone to help do the clasps in the back of the dress. There was a small area in the front right below the abdomen that seems to bunch up a little after I had it on for a bit but overall it was gorgeous:

Pretty cut, very well made. The color was very bright blue! For me, too bright for my event/time/season. Also a bit tight up top, but very well structured so can go without bra (was able to zip without bra)

Best Dressed Award!

I LOVED this dress!! I had tried the 6 (my normal dress size) on in the Chicago RTR store and it was just a little snug so I went up a size. I had also read other reviews that Monique Lhuillier dresses run small. The top is padded so you don't need to wear a bra. The dress is backless but it's just enough to be classy enough for a work holiday party. I got a TON of compliments and my husband and I won best dressed couple! The color is gorgeous!! I am 5'2 and it was just below my knees.

I ordered this dress for a party out of town and when it arrived the dress was too tight. I could get it on, but it was tight everywhere. Beautiful color and I loved the pattern.

Pretty Blue Dress!

I wore this dress for my bridal tea and it was sooo comfortable. I am pretty broad shouldered and busty and I still felt like I had plenty of room. I received many compliments on the style and the color of the dress. However, I would definitely rent a smaller size next time, but I will probably rent this again.

Beautiful blue!

Such a beautiful blue color and the lace detail was fab! I wish they had the 14 available as the 16w was just a little loose and I really think this dress is meant to be form fitting but still not a big deal as it still looked amazing on me! 3rd rental and going strong!

Favorite dress so far!!

This dress was perfect for the occasion, classy and bright. I'm a little over 5'9", 34C, waist 31", Hips 41" and 168lbs - pear shape. The size 10 fit perfectly. I couldn't wear a bra with it because the back is open, so I taped on liner cups. I really loved this dress.

The dress fit great and was comfortable overall! There was; however, a portion of the internal structure of the dress that had broken through the inside of the dress and was rubbing on my abdominal area. Ouch!

Beautiful - didn't wear );

Loved this dress!!! I ordered a size 12 that fit like a glove except the top button on my back (ughhh to my broad back) so it looked odd to wear...the 14 was way too big. So I returned it without a wear! *tip* to all renters try it on as soon as you receive it...if it doesn't fit RTR will overnight you a dress! (:

Heavy dress and bad boning

The dress was a beautiful color, perfect for the wedding party. I am normally a size 10 but there is no way with my hips and my chest that the 10 would've fit. Thankfully, the size 12 fit like a glove. The boning however was poking through on each side of the dress you could actually see it poking through the dress on the right side and on the left side it scratched me the entire time I was wearing it. The dress is also not stretchy, if you are looking for a dress that gives this is not the dress for you. I would not rent this dress again.

Size gap between 12 and 14

Dress arrived looking as expected. The size 12 was just a bit too small, and the 14 was much too large. It may be the jump from ladies to women's sizing, but neither worked for me in the end. RTR did a refund for credit for me, so I'm still happy enough with the experience, just a warning if you're between these sizes.

Tons of compliments

This dress is stunning. And I love that it's a little longer than the knee. Pro: it keeps its shape all night due to the excellent quality. Con: it's so sturdy it's harder to raise your arms or bend over to pick something up.

Perfect color and style for my brothers wedding

I walked as a brides maid in my brothers wedding - the color for the brides maids dresses was royal blue. This dress delivered that perfectly and the color was vibrant. It was a more conservative wedding in NC and the dress fit the bill. It's sheer up top with a sweeetheart bodice, cap sleeves, and knee length. The size 2 fit well but I have wide hips and shoulders so I wouldn't have been able to close the lace snaps across my back or hips. The 4 still fit like a glove but allowed me to breath and be able to sit comfortably. Due to the form fitted nature of this dress I did not need a bra.

Gorgeous!

This dress is exceptional! Color really pops. Lacy but structured. Keyhole back is sexy but classy. There was a clasp missing on that back but I had no time to return it before the wedding in Scotland. I did not need to wear a bra as dress is well lined. Great length. Loved it!

Great fit and complimentary

This is a beautiful dress, unfortunately I didn't end up choosing this one. Runs true to size in my opinion. I just had a baby 11 weeks ago, so I wanted something to be flattering around the mid-section. The material is pretty forgiving. The back key hole is very pretty especially with the lace. Looks great with nude or red heels. Would consider renting this again!
