Beautiful, but tough shoulder measurements
Beautiful lace! The color and style of this dress were amazing. However, I had some issues in the shoulder area. I couldn't even button up the top flaps in the back to close out the cut-out area. I tend to have slightly wide-set shoulders and I could barely even move my arms in this dress, I felt like the kid from A Christmas Story!

I am bit larger and not all dresses fit nicely and flatter me and this dress made me look amazing!
Fits great. Need to wear a strapless bra if you are larger on top. If you are small, you can wear it without a bra.

Not my best RTR experience.
This dress was ok but not my favorite. The color is more hot pink then red as it appears online. Also the dress I had appeared to have been dry cleaned a number of times and had shrunk. The back of the dress around the slit did not sit right but unfortunately given the timing I didn't have time to send it back. Also the shoulder area was restricting (again not sure if that was due to the cut or the dry cleaning). I have a pear figure but had a hard time lifting my arms most of the night out of fear of ripping the dress. If you have wide shoulders this may not be the dress for you.

Wedding chic
Nervous to wear this without a bra, but once I had it on I didn't even think about it. Wore the bigger of two sizes to have a bit of extra room. Loved everything about this dress!

This is a conservative dress with a stunning open back!
The dress has light boning so it keeps a great shape. You might want to safety pin the back eye hooks if your going to do a lot of dancing!

Great color
I rented this for my sister's wedding rehearsal dinner, and for the most part loved it. I ordered both the 14 and the 16 but the 16 was just way to baggy up top, although the fit around my butt was better...no surprise there. I have ample junk in the trunk but not enough boob to fill out the larger top. I ended up going with the 14 though but I'd recommend trying both sizes if you have a bigger booty. This dress didn't have much in the way of 'give' at all. Also--my sister is wearing the same dress in white, but I'd like to point out that I totally rented mine first. ;)

I loved the look of this dress. The boning didn't stay as staight as I wanted it to, but that was probably just because of my body. Overall a great rent!

this dress was perfect for the wedding I attended. It was comfortable and had a little give but form fitting and very flattering. the lace and darts hide all the unflattering bits in the middle.

Stunning dress
I felt classy and beautiful wearing this dress. Even the bride was envious! It fit well and was sexy without being too revealing. The color would be good on most skintones. I did need to wear a backless bra, however, so those with larger busts might have trouble. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because the lace was a bit tattered around the edges and you could tell that it had been well-loved by previous renters. I actually had to get out my sewing kit and put in a few stitches around the sleeves and zipper areas. I'm sure it wasn't noticeable unless you were really examining it, but wanted to mention it.

Beautiful!!!
I was a bit concerned since there was no stretch in this dress. After putting on my SPANX, the size 2 was too tight and the size 4 fit like a glove. I usually need stretchy fabrics because of my chesty bust and my big butt. Overall, I received so many compliments about the dress. I was the "lady in Red!"

Pretty dress but too clingy
I ended up renting this one and another red dress to make a decision to wear one. I actually went with the other dress completely. This dress is pretty on but the lining is attached to the dress so it would always bunch up and look really weird on.

It was lovely but it made my belly look huge. And I was not a big fan of the fabric. Just not for me
True to size but bunches up strangely at belly so unless you are a twig; this will not help

Make sure you wear a Nu Bra. It's an open back, but not incredibly structured in the front.

Received so many compliments!
Wore this dress for an August wedding and received a number of compliments throughout the evening. Material was slightly heavier than expected, but I was never uncomfortably hot. Mostly true to size - there is a little 'bunching' that occurs in the mid-section of the dress when you move around frequently. However, no one noticed until I pointed it out. Overall, beautiful lace dress in a stunning color!

Stunning Dress
The lace is a little worn out, but still stunning. I would love to purchase this dress. A lot of support around the stomach. Paired it with black suede stilettos with an ankle strap. Wore it to a wedding in October in New Jersey. Would love to rent this dress again in multiple colors.

Felt Like a Knockout!
This dress is simply stunning online rack and even better in person! The keyhole back and cap sleeves made it feel sexy and sophisticated - perfect to attend a wedding! The size 6 fit but was shorter and tighter than the size 8. I opted to wear the 8 for the sake of feeling more comfortable sitting and moving. The only problem is you definitely need to wear a low back strapless bra to avoid showing through the lace in the back. Overall I received a ton of compliments and my fiance told me I looked like a movie star! Will definitely use RTR again :)

Photographs beautifully
This dress fit like a glove and photographed beautifully. It was very comfortable to wear. I wore a backless bra without any issues. The only negative comment I have is that this dress was very worn. The sleeves and under arm area were embarrassingly tattered looking. Luckily, with the dim lighting, the imperfections weren't noticeable to others.

not what I expected
I rented this for a wedding after a terrific experience with a similar dress from the same designer in navy. This dress did not work for my body type. It ran much smaller than the navy version. It also showed a lot more cleavage than I am used to. I also expected a much deeper red and the dress is more of a dark pink.

I was able to wear a Monique dress that I could not normally afford to a wedding and fit right in
I borrowed a size 4 and a 6 and the 6 was tight on me, which was weird. The 4 is true to size and the lace hides all the "bulges"

Gorgeous!
This dress fit wonderfully. I didn't wear a bra because of the open back and felt secure enough to dance the night away. It was a especially warm night for this time of year and I was comfortable the whole night! This dress hugs you in all the right places!

Classic little red dress
I rented this as my backup dress for a black tie optional event. I did not end up wearing this dress because the longer dress I also ordered was more appropriate for the event. However, this dress fit perfectly and I wouldn't hesitate to order it again for an event where it would be better suited. This dress definitely requires shapewear under it because it is form fitting, it'll also help to get the lining of the dress in the right place. The red color is gorgeous and will help you stand out in a sea of little black dresses.

Another Shining Moment Thanks to RTR!
For my third RTR rental, I chose this gorgeous lace dress and beautiful bracelet. When I received the dress it fit perfectly, but the condition of the lace was very worn. At first I was worried but all it took was one quick online chat with a stylist and I had a new dress in my hands the next day! RTR truly does have amazing customer service which is one of the main reasons I love it so much. The new dress was perfect. I did not wear a bra, but the dress was not super tight so I think I would have tried an adhesive bra if I did it again (which I will!). I received countless compliments and felt fabulous. I can't wait to rent this again!

Snug in all the right places
I used this for a photo shoot for promotional pictures for a website, and i loved this dress! Wish I could own it. It is snug in all the right places, perfect for that hourglass picture. I do have a wide ribcage and larger up top and I think if I had wanted to do some dancing, I would have wanted a bigger size, but for standing and looking fierce, it was amazing!

Fit like a glove. You'll need to wear a backless bra with this dress. This dress looks expensive-I wore it to a September wedding in upstate NY and it was perfect. This is my second Monique Lhuillier dress I've rented and successfully worn in the past month and I look forward to trying more soon!
