Stylist Notes

Rich red lace makes this ML Monique Lhuillier dress alluring. We love it with T-strap heels.

UNDERGARMENTS: Should be worn without a bra. We recommend fashion tape.

Felt like a showstopper in red lace! Perfect dress while my date was in the wedding. Classy & sexy!
I can range anywhere between a 6 and 10 depending on the designer and because I have a booty! Because other reviews had mentioned it running small, I went with an 8 and 10. Felt a little bloated the day of the wedding so I went with the 10 which was perfect! The heavier fabric was very flattering for someone during their "time of the month". I do recommend using a sticky bra & strong dress tape as the top does gape a little when you bend over. I absolutely recommend this dress 1000%!! I felt stunning and received a million compliments in this dress!! Another RTR win!

Awesome dress
Loved this dress, hated to send it back. I'm 5'10" and I thought the length was perfect -- offsets the somewhat revealing back and décolletage, making it wedding-appropriate. Didn't have to wear a bra or babysit my boobs - the shelf bra and coverage of cups were supportive enough. Beautiful color and lace. Back is gorgeous. Fit well everywhere.

Truly a showstopper
I felt like a complete bombshell in this sexy number! I wore this for an anniversary dinner with my boyfriend. His jaw dropped when I walked into the living room! Looking at the fit, it definitely runs on the small side. The 4 wasn't available, and I was just able to squeeze into the size 2. Mostly the top of the dress is where the tightness comes from, and it eases it's way down from the hips to the hem. I have bigger / curvier hips, and this dress was surprisingly forgiving in that area! Would rent again, just maybe not for a big steak dinner :)

Amazing, flattering dress
The material of this dress was very flattering even though it is form fitting. As others have suggested, I wish I would've gone a size up to be a bit more comfortable. However, this dress looks great and was amazing. Two thumbs up!

Felt absolutely FLAWLESS in this dress.
No I normally wear a size 8 however this dress does run a little small. I was able to wear the size 10 and absolutely LOVED it. Def kept me secure and i was able to dance and have a great time. Would absoultely recommend sizing up for this one.

True to Size
I'm very short, and the dress still hit a few inches above the ankle, so it will be a midi dress even if you're very short. the top was a bit low for a petite person, but overall it was a great dress!

nice night
I'm 5 foot 3, petite, with no butt, and 32 DD bust- I thought the dress fit wonderfully. The clasp was bent out of shape, but it was fine anyway. Comfortable to dance in all night even in the summer (it is on the heavier side). I got many compliments. I would guess that if you have small breasts this dress might not work as it does have padded cups that may lay weird if not filled. I also think the skirt might be a little tight for anyone more blessed in the booty department than myself. Overall, I would rent again!

No stretch so it has to fit perfectly on your body
I wanted this dress to work for a holiday party, but with a larger chest, the top was really small and the rest was pretty big. I am 34C and wore a size 4 despite requiring a size 2 for the waist and hip part. Overall, I think unless you feel confident that your body is well proportioned, this dress could be risky to get since there is no stretch in the fabric.

I wore this to my fiancee's friend's wedding.
Overall, a great dress. It did run a bit large on me but I'm petite. The lace was a bit frayed in some areas from excessive wear, I'm assuming. It was big on me in the bust area (I'm a 32A) and I think I had to pin it....or maybe I over stuffed the top (lol) can't remember. It did fit snugly around my waist and hips though and was very comfortable. Love the midi length! Great dress overall!

Amazing!
Amazing dress! Raspberry colored in natural light, red in photos - beautiful shade for blondes! Wanted some cleavage for the top - some push-up inserts did the trick! Beautiful lace detailing, quality fabric but not too heavy for summer outdoor wedding (80*F).

This dress is hot! Sexy but not too showy.
The color is absolutely amazing. Length was a bit below my knee, perfect. I had a bit of trouble with the bust. I didn't fill it out enough and it flopped a bit. Had to use fashion tape so I didn't pop out. Overall a great dress if you can fill out the top a little more.

Beautiful dress, great color!
This dress was so flattering. It showed very curve but was a thick enough material that it covered everything nicely and just looked amazing. The red was true to the screen and stunning. My only challenge with this dress was the top. As others have mentioned, it leaves room for more full chested ladies but those of us on the smaller side have extra room. It wasn't a deal breaker for me but in the future, I'd get something to help fill out the top. You can't really wear a bra with this dress. Bottom line, I loved this and I would absolutely rent it again.

Lady in Red
I felt great in this dress. Fit true to size. I typically wear a 4 and opted for the 4 in this style. I'm curvier on the bottom and had no issues with this dress. I'm a 34C and needed a sticky-bra to help fill out and feel secure in the cups of the dress.

Difficult Sizing
I wanted to love this dress. the length was odd on me. i am usually a 6R but the 6R was loose in the bust area. I also had the 4R a a back up size and it did fit better. So if you are smaller chested, consider sizing down a size. someone else at the gala i attended wore this. i went with my back up this time.

Lovely Lace With A Flirty Flare
The only negative to this gown was that the straps were rather loose and long and it made the bodice sag a little. It wasn't horrible and I would definitely rent this dress again. The length is so in fashion currently and the back offers a little more flirt to balance the length.

I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner/welcome reception.
I love this dress! I wanted to wear something a bit on the sexier side for the night before my wedding because my wedding dress was pretty wholesome and classic. This dress fit like a glove, was the perfect length, showed off all the rows I had been doing in prep for the wedding, and made me feel beautiful. The only thing I was a bit uncomfortable with was the bust area. I am between a B and a C and don't have the perkiest of ladies. I was able to wear sticky boobs and pull this look off but I had to stand up straight and carry myself well otherwise my bust would have looked sad in this dress. I just don't have enough chest to fill this dress out perfectly; it still looked and felt amazing though!

Comfy, sexy and unique
This was a last minute backup for an amer heart assoc gala and I wasn't too excited about at first. I wanted a wow dress and don't typically love lace. I was wrong! This dress fit amazing and I didn't have to wear a bra. It was the perfect mix of sexy and comfortable to eat and dance in. The color is beautiful and the length is surprisingly nice. There ended up being people dressed less formal, so I was relieved not to have a red carpet gown on. This dress was stunning and my stylist was so awesome to suggest it. Wore it with nude heels, sparkly necklace and stud earrings. Was gorgeous and I felt beautiful! Thanks RTR!!

It was so comfortable and I felt great in the dress!
I felt GREAT in this dress. It was true to size, but I do have smaller boobs and that was the only part that was a bit big on me. The length was great for a wedding or special occassion. I received multiple compliments on the dress. The material was super comfortable, stretchy but also tight in the right spots. I have nothing negative to say about this dress!

Didn't get a chance to wear this one - I was attending an outdoor June wedding in Philadelphia and the material was simply too heavy. The dress was comfortable and would have been perfect if the temperatures were just a little cooler. I'll definitely give this one another chance!

Stunning!
I usually wear a size zero but some reviews suggested to size up so I ordered the 2 and the 0 just in case. But the size two would not zip up all the way. Thanks to RTR excellent service I was able to exchange for new sizes. I revived the size 4 and 6 but the six was easy too big and the 4 was just perfect no an inch more not and inch less. The dress has no give. Although it's a stunning dress and I felt sexy and very Jessica rabbit. The area right under my busy was very very tight, the clasp dug into my side and I am a small chested girl (32B). The bust was a little loose. Overall it look gorgeous but a bit uncomfortable, but I felt so sexy lol.

Beautiful but no give.
The dress was so beautiful and surprisingly comfortable to wear. I didn't have to wear a bra which was awesome, however I have wide hips and this dress has absolutely no stretch to it. Still looked great, but something to keep in mind if you're heavier on the bottom.

GORGEOUS dress that not only fit perfectly, but was also very comfortable.
LOVED this dress! I typically wear a 6 or 8, but ordered the 8 and 10 (after a too-small experience with my last RTR). I ended up wearing the 8 and it fit like it was made for me! Loved the detail of the lace and the gorgeous back. I wore this for a black-tie optional wedding and it was perfect for the event. I wore a black shrug for the ceremony, but took it off for the reception. Not only is the dress gorgeous, it was also super comfortable - easy to sit in and dance in all night. I did not want to send this dress back!

Beautiful dress!!!
This dress was very beautiful and I got compliments all night. The dress is difficult to wear a bra with, so I opted not to. However there was some gapping at my bust. I wear 36C bra but I still felt like I didn't quite fill it out enough which made me self conscious all night. Other people seemed to love it though!

Beautiful dress, fits oddly
I was between sizes, the 2 was slightly too small in the rib cage and the 4 was too large. I ended up wearing the 4. It is an eye-catching dress, but I did not feel confident with the fit.

New Years Eve Dress
Very comfortable yet glam dress. Had an old Hollywood feel. The 4 wasn't available and probably would have been better. The 6 was quite large in the waist and hips so the lining would shift under the lace. But if you have a larger chest it might be worth it to have some wiggle room in the bottom half. Overall I was really happy with the dress.

Romantic Stunner
The intricate lace of this #MoniqueLhuillier dress was gorgeous. The material is luxe and the craftsmanship is outstanding. I have a full bust and only opted for some silicone enhancers for a rounder cleavage shape. There was no stretch to the dress but the structure made it very forgiving. For being so substantial it was extremely comfortable. I went all night on the Vegas strip and felt like a million dollar bet!!

Stunning Red Dress
The detail of this lace dress is just so beautiful. I wore this to a holiday sit down dinner. Fit is true to size and comfortable. Straps feel a bit awkward until you zip it up and they fall into place. No need for a bra or tape since the dress stayed in place. Received so many compliments from men and women. A dress I will likely rent again.

Love this dress. The fit was perfect and I received so many compliments on this dress. I am about 5'7 thicker on the bottom at 160lbs. This dress turned heads and random people were complimenting me. U wore it to my work gala and it wasn't too sexy or revealing. I did have to buy bra inserts to fill out the cups a little. I am a small c. Rent this dress!!! I would have bought t if I could!

Beautiful dress! I wore this to a Christmas Cocktail party! I received compliments all night long!
The material of this dress is a thick lace which is very flattering. Even with the backless style, I was able to wear spanx just to make sure everything stayed in, but I don't think it was really necessary. This is a classic, yet sexy, dress, well worth the rental!

Loose around bust
The dress is beautiful and the back looks amazing! But the bust was loose. I'm a 32B and I got a size 0. The dress was perfect everywhere except for the bust. The material is quite thick and heavy, so it was a bit weird. Ended up not wearing it. It would have been perfect for a holiday party though!
