Not flattering

This dress was large in the chest (I am a 32B and rented a 2) and was not a flattering fit. The material was also itchy.

Holiday Party Dress - No Go

Didn't end up wearing this dress - fabric around chest was much too loose, even with me having large boobs. Was sad that it didn't fit because the fabric is beautiful !

Will try again with this one!

This dress was my original first choice for my friend's 40th Birthday Weekend trip. Unfortunately, my size 14 wasn't returned on time and I only got my backup size (16) in this dress -- although RTR's stellar customer service sent me an AMAZING replacement in time for my event, so no complaints. This dress is adorable, flattering, and so much fun in person. It also runs a full size too big, in my opinion. I ended up wearing a size 14 and a size 16 that weekend in other RTR dresses, so I can definitely wear both sizes... but this size 16 had room for a size 2 to climb in with me. I'm 5'10, 170ish, 36F/G, and measure 42-34-42. Typically, I have trouble getting the bust section of dresses to zip, but as you can see, I was swimming in this one. Waistline is elasticated, and has good stretch, but was also pretty loose on me. Loved the dress, but I'll try again in a 12. I'd recommend getting your true size and sizing down as your backup, unless you're smaller ok top... then maybe size down once for your primary pick and twice for your backup.

Bit of gold with a classic look

Definite follow the reviews when renting and you won't be disappointed. I usually wear two sizes bigger and went with a smaller size due to the top. It was perfect. Very comfy and fun!

Runs small, great party dress

I wore this for a black tie optional gala and received many compliments. Definitely size down - I'm normally a 10 in formal dresses, and the 6r fit me perfectly. It's easy to dance in, and was unique enough to stand out from the rest of the party goers without being too "out there" for me. Never had to readjust or limit movements - would rent again!

Design Flaw

This could have been cute, but my torso is too long and boobs too big for it to be flattering. I am normally a size 6 but am 18 weeks pregnant and the 6 fit comfortably through hip/waist with a bit of room, so this definitely runs a size large. Even without the pregnant belly though, this wouldn't have worked. I thought the tie shoulder was a real tie and could be adjusted, but unfortunately the shoulder is set and the tie is just a frill. If I could have adjusted the height by tying the shoulder, I could have got it to hit at my waistline. Instead it ended up hitting as an empire waist and made me look enormous. It was about 3 inches too high. Blah.

Unique and classy dress!

Really loved this dress and planned to wear it to a work event but didn't notice the gold threading before purchasing it and it turned out a little too fancy for what I wanted to wear it for. Returning just because I don't have an occasion to wear it at the moment but hoping to rent again when the right event comes up. The shoulder bow and handkerchief hem give this a flirty and glamorous vibe!

Not for tall people with a long torso. Won't sit right.

Great dress for a formal wedding

This dress fit great! I got lots of compliments. It fit the formal setting but was a bit shorter than floor length so I had ease of movement when I came to tearing up the dance floor.

Comfortable and stylish! Great for a curvy or full figure. Lightweight and very cute. Plenty of room for bust.

Too big on top!

I didn't end up wearing this dress because it was too large on me. The pattern is beautiful and the material is nice but the top half of the dress is a lot of extra material. Good for curvier people!

Georgeous dress, classy, detailed, and comfortable!

I wore this dress to a gala. I was looking for something I could be comfortable in but I didn't want to give up style. The one shoulder was just enough to keep this dress fun. The fabric is beautiful with gold threaded circles. Just the right touch of sparkle. I would rent this again.

This was a little loose around the bust for me. The fabric is much prettier in person than it appears in the photo but I didn't end up wearing it because of the fit.

Lovely Cut but Runs Large

Loved the style and cut but unfortunately the sizing ran large. i ordered a 2R and 4R and both were too big. I made the 2R work but because i typically get petites it was particularly large around the arms so i pinned it to make it a bit more fitted.

Fun NYE wedding!

This dress is so luxurious! The fabric and polka dot detailing made it perfect for a NYE wedding! I did have a hard time making the bow look cute and not too bulky! I think I could have sized down a size too because there was a lot of extra fabric in the chest area that wasn't as flattering as it could have been. I would rent again in a smaller size because it was adorable and comfortable! Perfect for dancing the night away at a wedding!

It was a fun, comfortable dress.

It was a really fun party dress. None of the photos showed how bright the gold circles were but I LOVE gold so that wasn't a problem. The top was very big.

I wore to a Holiday company party and got compliment after compliment. Super comfortable.

Fit ran true to size. I am typically a size 4 but ordered a size 6 because that's all that was left online. Because of the natural fit of the dress the 6 worked and I was super comfortable all night. The length is perfect. Formal enough for a party, casual enough for a fun night out. Absolutely loved!

Cool & comfortable at the Awards :)

This dress was remarkably easy to wear and so comfortable! The pictures didn't seem to show how much gold is in the design - so I was pleasantly surprised, and that detail made it stand out all the more from the majority of black cocktail dresses at my event.

Fun and comfortable piece!

I love this trendy dress by ML Monique Lhuillier! Running true to size with some stretch at the waist, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for your back up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection with an elastic waist and loose at the hips. It works for all cup sizes. You are able to wear a standard bra with this dress. At 5’4”, the length hit mid-thigh with the slip underneath and tea length for the rest of the sheer fabric. The metallic circle pattern on the dress is amazing in person and makes it unique. Pair with black heels and fun earrings to complete your outfit!
