This dress is bananas beautiful and fits like a glove!

Needed my husband to zip it up while I held up my boobs but once he zipped it - perfection! The embroidery in person is really special, and the skirt underneath is long enough that it doesn't ride up when you sit. Hits right above the floor - glad I can wear it with flats!

Pretty but revealing

Very pretty, but the underdress is very short and the top made me feel exposed. Gorgeous lace, though!

Very low cut

I was looking for a dress for a vineyard wedding. This was just ok. I'm going to keep looking. I'm not sure if you can wear a bra with this dress. It is pretty low cut.

Perfect for a formal event

Love love love this dress. Embroidery and colors are amazing- lots of compliments. I sized up BC there were no reviews yet and I needed to wear for an event same day- but had some room, so I'd say it likely runs true to size. I am 5'2 and with low heels it was full length on me but didn't skim the ground.

Pretty details

I always wear a 4. This dress zipped but was very snug (to the point that it would've been uncomfortable to wear all day) and pinched the bra fat area of my sides/back

Beautiful dress, but for anyone ordering plus size or have larger boobs you might want to try up to 2 sizes bigger than normal.

Stylist Review

I love this festive Floral Overlay Dress from Ml Monique Lhuiller. Running small with no stretch, I recommended sizing up for your primary size. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and fitted at the hips. It works best for A-C cups. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress so you should wear a strapless bra since it has a v neckline. At 5'5, the length hit floor length on me. The floral embroidery is beautiful in person and it's perfect to wear for a fiesta! Pair with black heels and fun earrings to complete your outfit!

Full coverage neckline, sheer below knee

I felt frumpy in this so I returned immediately. The bodice is full coverage and made me feel matronly. The skirt is sheer below the knee, which I didn't realize. I needed this for a black tie wedding and didn't feel like the sheerness at the lower skirt was appropriate.

A fun compliment-worthy dress!

I rented this dress to wear to a spring wedding on a vineyard in CA. I was wary because of the lack of reviews but this dress was truly awesome. I received compliments all night from both friends and other wedding guests. This dress is so unique and the embroidery is stunning and intricate. Note that this dress isn't floor length - I'm almost 5'9" and the dress hit at my ankles, but it worked with the style. For me it could be worn with or without a bra, but I recommend some fashion tape to keep the top in place. I didn't find it revealing as others commented. My only complaint was that the fabric chaffed my underarms a bit, but I was too busy partying and it didn't bother me until the next day! I definitely recommend renting it!

Didn't like fit

Beautiful fabric, but the top didn't fit nice on me. It fit a little too high, I wanted a bit more cleavage to show, I guess. It was a little on the tight side, but still fit mostly.

Gorgeous dress, loved the colorful embroidery and overlay.

I thought this dress was great, maybe one of my favorites that I've rented from RTR. The structure, material and embroidery is all high-quality and beautiful and I got several compliments on the dress itself. I'm athletically built, "rectangle shape" with a smaller chest, so I could see where if you are curvier with a larger chest, you might be spilling out of this dress as the top is snug and low-cut. It was also the perfect length in short heels, but could see on a shorter person that it might drag the ground. I loved it though, and it fit like a glove! Beautiful dress for a spring event.

RTR is fast and easy to return.

This dress is BEAUTIFUL in person. I sized up because this dress does not have a lot of wiggle room and ya homegirl needed a little room to fit a couple cold ones. #WeddingWears The top was slightly stretched out, no doubt due to someone with a slightly larger chest than mine renting it before me. The dress is slightly low cut so I was unable to wear a bra with it. (A positive in my book, because bras are an invention of the devils.) With that being said, I did have to use a safety pin on one strap so my lady bits didn't fall out. I'd definitely rent this dress again. It made me feel like the dime piece that I am! Multiple people commented on how much they liked it. For reference I'm 5'6, 250lbs and wear a 42C. If you're on the fence about renting this dress then Humpty Dumpty yourself off that barrier and into this bomb.com garment. You won't regret it!

Beautiful for a black tie wedding

Loved everything about this! As a recently new mom I was terrified it wouldn't fit or look good - thankfully it did both! It was comfortable, and perfect length if you're on the shorter side like me but want a long dress. I loved it!!

Perfect fit. Pretty embroidery detail.

Wore this dress to a formal wedding. Got a bunch of compliments on it. Fit true to size. Boning in the dress was uncomfortable wore Spanx so it wouldn't dig into me and it definitely helped. Overall would wear it again and recommend it!

Beautiful floral detail with velvet touches (the straps and sash)

Lots of room for those of us with bigger hips and thighs. I’m smaller on top and it fit through the chest, though it was low cut. The metal boning in the bodice was poking out at the bottom and digging into my sides which was really uncomfortable. I tried going up a size and had the same issue.

Boning somewhat uncomfortable and would poke out through the fabric. Other than that, the dress is beautiful and great!

Received many compliments on this dress. Can be worn for black tie or cocktail. Usually wear a 6 or 8, the 8 fit perfectly. Very comfortable and easy to move around in.

Wore this for an awards show and got so many compliments! Such a unique and beautiful dress.

I ordered the 4R and the 6R and the 4R was slightly too small. Luckily the 6R fit perfectly! I am 5'4" and the dress was almost floor length on me, but I was able to wear it with flats or heels.

Felt so beautiful and confident going to a Law school ball with my boyfriend.

The dress was absolutely gorgeous-- the embroidery was to die for! I am petite (4'11) and I was really worried about how long the 2R would be on me. It fit me like a full length gown and with heels it was perfect. It was a stunning dress and I wish I could own it! To dress it up, I wore a bold red lip, black heels, and emerald earrings. I got so many compliments all night at the law school ball I went to.

Looooved! But lose the boning!

Fit wonderfully! The boning got pokey and really hurt after a while, but other than that- no regrets! I'm six feet tall for reference :)

Gorgeous dress with a slight design flaw

This fit true to size, I usually wear a 6-8 so I ordered both sizes. The color and embroidery is so much more beautiful in person. Minimal stretch in the top half of dress, bottom half is flowy and looser. The size 6 fit perfectly, but there is plastic boning in the top half of the dress to give it shape and it was coming out of the seams and poking me in the hips and under my armpits. Highly uncomfortable. Ended up wearing the 8 and didn't notice the boning poking me again until the end of the wedding. I wish they had constructed this dress a little better so you could wear it without being stabbed.

Fit was great even though I’m short. It was floor-length for me, but still worked without being too swimming.

Glamorous, intricately embroidered dress

Wore this for a party and got tons of compliments. I ended up wearing a mesh bodysuit underneath the dress because it was pretty low cut and I wanted to keep the ladies in check. Was comfortable but I little tough to get into because of the zipper and thick fabric. This dress has a very luxe vibe about it. Would rent again for a nice event.

Beautiful gown with beautiful details

This gown is so beautiful in person. It has lots of detailed embroidery. I had to pin the straps for a perfect fit, but it fit well otherwise. Got compliments all night, truly a showstopper. It hit just above the floor when I wore 2 inch heels. I found the liner to be a bit sheer, so I wore black spanx shorts under the dress.

Beautiful dress

I loved this dress! I am usually a size 2 but I am busty so I ordered a size 4 as my back up and that is the one that worked. I got so many compliments all night long. The dress is gorgeous and well made and the fabric holds so wonderfully.

Nonstop compliments at a formal wedding

This dress is even more beautiful in person, the color of the embroidery is fantastic. Fits true to size unless you are busty. I'm between a 6-8 and ordered both the 8 and 10 based on reviews that it ran tight. I wore the 8 and it was a little loose on me, I needed a padded strapless bra to fill out the top as a pear shaped gal. I would 100% recommend for a formal affair. Only downside is the boning pokes out at the bottom but it is easily fixed with some tape

So much fun to dance in!

This dress fit like a dream. The straps are not adjustable, so luckily they were the perfect length for my figure. I wore this to a formal wedding at a winery and got so many compliments.
