Charming but BEWARE: LONG

I rented the 2R, I am 5'7", and several inches of material were dragging on the ground behind me. It would have looked absurd to wear it so i sent it back. Even when I put on 5 inch heels, there was still a couple inches of fabric dragging.

I'm about 5'1 and it was a bit too long for me; otherwise an elegant looking dress.

Gorgeous dress!

I absolutely LOVED this dress! I rented it for my friends black tie optional wedding and it was PERFECT! I received so many compliments on it all night! Didn't want to send it back The ONLY thing was that the bust was a little big for me, I tried to wear a strapless bra but found it uncomfortable so I ended up taking it off during the wedding and was fine without one!

This dress made me feel like Cinderella but was also very comfortable.

This dress fit perfectly, although the back train does come past the ground so you have to be willing to lift it up when walking outside.

Crying about returning this! I LOVED IT!!

I am in between a 10 and 12. I went with the 12 bc I had more room up top to put a strapless bra underneath without feeling like I couldn't breathe. I'm 5'8 and wore a 3 inch heel. I got the regular length. I can't imagine who would be tall enough to pull off the long. Make sure you measure your shoulder to the lowest point of the gown as I can imagine this being too long for many women. For me this was perfect, fitted up top and flared. No shape wear needed for my mommy tummy. I felt comfortable beautiful all night and received lots of compliments. It was perfect for the gubernatorial inaugural gala we attended.

Lovely dress!

I loved it! I got complimented all night. I will say the bust fit tightly, so I'm grateful there was a free larger size with my order. The train also was VERY long, i had on 4" heels and i still found myself tripping on the lace a lot. The fabric was thick enough that you don't really need to figure out an awkward bra situation. Totally would rent this dress again!

Got so many compliments on it. Perfect for a black tie wedding.

I had to get a size down because my other dresses didn't work out, so it was a bit uncomfortable. It's very long in the back so if you're shorter, you may end up stepping on it. That said, people complimented me all night and it photographs really well.

Comfortable & Elegant

Found out last-minute that I won tickets to our arts center's black-tie fundraiser. This was only one of a few dresses available and I'm SO happy I rented it! Rented the 10 & 12 and ended up in 12 for more breathing room. A little big on top, but not noticeable by others. I'm 5'5" and wore ~3" heels - the back skirted the floor beautifully! Dress is a frosty-navy color with black lace. I received many compliments and would totally rent again for a formal affair!

The compliments received and the elegance of the dress flowing behind me

Went with the 6. I’m 5’4” 140lbs with an athletic build. The dress is stunning. It was snug at the top and waist but ran true to size. I did have to be mindful of the length, a few ppl stepped on it. Received a ton of compliments. It’s a dress meant for taller girls but my 5’4” self was able to pull it off with some 3 in sling backs.

Fun Twist on Black Tie

This dress was perfect for a NYE party that was black tie. It was classy but had a bit of a fun twist with the halter top and high/low cut. The only tricky part was navigating a crowded party with a train.

So flattering and comfortable!

I wore this to a "retro 60s-70s-80s" work party, thinking with the lace detail and shape it had a 60s-ish Mad Men vibe. This was a backup style, and I ended up loving it. I'm 5'3 and even in heels I was dragging on the floor, but the skirt flowed out when I walked which made it feel very princess-like. I recently went from a DDD to a C, so I think bustier girls might want to go up a size, this fit me great and I didn't need a bra or feel like it was obvious I didn't. Highly recommend this one. Lots of compliments.

Perfect for the opera

Very beautiful dress. Felt very glamorous. The top part was a little loose for me. The back of the dress also kept getting stepped on (I'm 5'7" and wore 3" heels). Would rent again.

The timing of delivery was key, dresses were ready to wear, and rental cost was reasonable

Would have preferred a petite size but the high low look made the tail flow

Gorgeous formal dress, lots of compliments!!!

The neckline was similar to a choker... but I loved the dress once it was on and the compliments kept coming! Being 6'2" its hard to find a dress long enough so this high low is perfect.

Mardigras endemyion extravaganza

The fair was almost perfect the waistline did not give any slack so throughout the evening I felt like it kept getting tighter and I could not breathe very well I was very uncomfortable. If I did not eat anything or have any alcoholic beverages that might not have happened but it's not Realistic. The dress was extremely flattering however I love the color and the shape. I'm usually a size 6 long so I'm just surprised that the 8 Long was super tight on me towards the end of the night

Stylist Review

I love this elegant dress by ML Monique L’huillier! Running small with no stretch, I recommend wearing a size up for your primary size. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and loose at the hips. It works best for A-C cup sizes. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress o you should wear a strapless bra . At 5’5, the length hit knee length on me. The high low cut of the dress is absolutely stunning and is definitely a fun style. Pair with simple heels and a black clutch to complete your outfit!

Didn't love

This made my hips look huge and I don't have big hips. It was something about the way the fabric fell below the waistline.

Looks great on a baby bump as well!

I rented two dresses for a ball. My friend who was also attending the ball is pregnant. Originally I planned to wear this blue dress which was stunning and so comfortable, but my friend's dress didn't fit her new shape. I let her wear this dress instead which she absolutely loved and felt so comfortable in. So - this dress looks absolutely adorable on both your normal body, as well as super flattering on a bump! The only caveat - her date kept stepping on the train of her dress which is lace so it can't be hemmed - but that was the only downfall.

It was a great gala with my husband and good friends to raise money for Camp Kesum!

The dress is beautiful! I received many compliments. I am 5'3" and it was a bit long on the back, so I had to be careful to not step on it. I am between sizes and ended up wearing size 4 instead of size 2. Thankful that I had 2 sizes to choose from.

Unique design, too large on top.

This dress does not have a built in bra like most formal dresses. Even with a strapless bra I did not fill it out enough, I'm a 36B. The only downside of being a pear shape in this case is that the top was too big while the rest fit fine.

So many compliments!

I loved wearing this dress at a formal professional event. I had to try a few different sizes and lengths to get the right fit. I'm 5'4" and the regular length worked best!

I wore this dress to the Navy Submarine Birthday Ball. I absolutely loved this dress!

I am a very tall woman, and this dress just barely hit the floor whic was amazing! If you under 6 feet, I suggest getting the regular length. Highly suggest getting a stick on bra as the cut on top is more triangle. All in all, this dress was amazing and would HIGHLY recommend if going to a formal event!

Perfect for a longer torso, but I couldn't wear it. The straps were too long for me and there was no way to easily pin it. Size up. I'm normally a 4 or 6 in dresses.

Surprise Stylist Pick

Fit like a glove, made my shoulders look amazing, didn't need Spanx the way the waist fit. This was a stylist's suggestion after my original pick arrived and was a dud. I had my doubts but wow, super flattering and I received complements all night. Only criticism is that the pace does not lie totally flat at the waist. It ought to be starched or maybe stitched down better. A winner!
