I adore this dress!
I was really nervous about fitting this dress. The only size they had available during the time I needed it was a 10R and I normally wear a 12R, so I was sure I wasn't going to fit it.
I had a really hard time finding a MOH dress that I actually liked for my sister's wedding. I tried on a million other dresses before taking a risk and renting the Monique Lhuillier. I decided to rent a backup dress of a different style just in case, and when I called to add it to the order they added the backup dress for free!!
When the dress arrived it was immaculate, looked brand new! Surprisingly, I fit into the dress just fine! I was over the moon in excitement.
I have a larger chest, and the dress is a bit tight in that area so I just skipped wearing a bra.
The only regret I had was not wearing shape wear (I was rushing and forgot). The dress naturally bunches up around the stomach area when you're walking, so shape wear would help with that.
Also, I wore 6 inch heels, so the dress wouldn't drag on the floor (because I'm only 5'1)
Last thing, I would suggest bringing flats with you, because it's really easy to step on the back of the dress in your heels and tear the dress (thank goodness that didn't happen to me).
I loved everything about this dress and was glad I didn't buy a MOH dress that would sit in my closet for years.
