This dress worked!
Reading prior comments, I thought maybe this dress would run large, so I ordered a 4 (usually wear a 4/6) with a 6 as the back up. I'm 5'5", 125- but am more of an apple shape. The 6 worked well, including the length with low heels (just a tiny bit long). I received compliments all night-the back cutout was a nice detail. I wore a normal strapless bra- the picture made it seem like it rode lower than it does . I was very happy with this dress!

I wore my normal size and was able to wear a normal strapless bra with it. I felt glamorous wearing it.

Glamorous, but long
I did not have the best experience with this dress, but that was more my fault than the dress's. First of all, not the best dress for a party where you are dancing a lot. It is heavy, and it was long for me - I am 5'4", I ordered the 2R, and I wore 2 inch heels. Higher heels probably would have solved the problem, but I didn't have any so I resorted to hem tape. It was my first time trying the tape, and it was a terrible idea. I was still tripping on the dress while dancing, and even worse, the tape was getting stuck to my heels so I had to keep pulling it off. Embarrassing and uncomfortable. I don't think I will be renting floor length dresses anymore! Or maybe I will if there is a petite size. As for a bra - I tried the dress on with a strapless bra and it was pretty well hidden, but I decided to buy the strapless, backless "bra", which are actually adhesive cups. They worked, although I kept wanting to adjust them all night. If you have a perky busom you will be fine with nothing, but mine is drooping due to nursing three kids. To end on a positive note, it is a beautiful and comfortable dress, the black and navy contrast is interesting.

Feeling elegant and beautiful!
Gorgeous gown, very well made, good quality. Very fitted from bust to hips, wish I had ordered the size 8 to try on. The length was perfect and a great dress for dancing because it is fuller from the knees down. Loved the RTR experience, the dress arrived a day early, ready to wear! I'm already looking for another event to rent a dress.

Perfect for the Red Carpet
This gown is absolutely stunning. I generally wear a 4-6, but, like all of the Monique Lhullier dresses I've worn, I fit a 2. The dress fits like a dream, though larger-busted ladies may struggle a bit--it is quite snug in the chest. As other reviewers have said, this dress is tricky to get into by yourself, but it is doable. It was comfortable and I received compliments all night. This dress made me feel gorgeous--I was sad to have to return it. Absolutely felt at home on the red carpet. One final note--it does show the shape of any undergarments, so boned corsets/bulky bras may not be ideal with this gown.

I loved this dress! Perfect for my company's winter gala.
The dress fit great. Plenty of room to move around, but snug enough to be flattering. I wore this dress with 2" heels. I work a strapless adhesive bra with this dress, which worked well. I liked the blue/black combination of the dress as well as the lace. The lace was a little worn at the top, but not bad enough to change my mind about wearing the dress.

Beautiful dress for my event.
Very comfortable. Dress fit and ran true to size. I am glad I had ordered the long as I was wearing about a 3 inch heel and wanted it to sweep the floor.

This was a great dress for a formal fundraiser! Comfortable and easy to move in.
I loved the fit of this dress. I usually wear a size 6 but requested the 8 as a back up and glad I did! It just gave a little more room in the fitted bust to hips that made it more comfortable. The length was nice with heels and the bottom of the dress had a very nice sway to it without being too heavy. I wore a strapless bra and it was completely hidden, even with the lower back cut.

Gorgeous dress!
The dress was very comfortable and form fitting in the right places. Very elegant dress. I'm 5'4" and the Petite was a little short. I ordered it because regular wasn't available. I wore a lower heel than I would normally wear and it wasn't bad. Overall loved the dress!

Perfect for Black Tie Wedding!
Super satisfied with my first RTR experience and this dress! I needed a long gown for a black tie wedding and was nervous about the length but the dress fit perfectly. A bit heavier material, but was still able to dance the night away without being too hot. Didn't even need to wear a bra with it! Highly recommend for a fall/winter wedding. Super comfortable and so many compliments!

Sleek and slimming dark beauty.
The dress was beautiful! Very elegant, yet sexy. My only complaint was that it was still too short on me. I'm 5'10" and ordered a 0L. The 2L wasn't available. I wish it fell longer on me. Even with kitten heels it was a too short. Otherwise, I'd recommend the style in a heartbeat!

The comfort of the dress! I was able to walk around and dance late into the night without any issue.
The 4R fit me perfectly and the length was great with just a few inches of heels. The stones on the top of the dress are a bit loose but nothing too apparent since its all black lace on the top and navy for the body of the dress. If you're looking for something fitting but very comfortable, I highly recommend it!

A rare glam evening
This was the perfect dress for a black tie wedding. Many other women were wearing gowns and it was fun to feel glamorous even though I'm not sure when I will have a similar occasion. This dress has just the right amount of bling and the midnight blue felt like a great evening choice. I might have gone up a size even though I ruled out the 8P which would normally be too big. The 6P fit but JUST. The 4 ( which is a size I regularly wear) would not have been even close! Next time will pay better attention to measurements!

I needed a long dress for a black tie wedding. This dress was formal, but understated.
Fits well. Dress has a flattering shape - curves around hips and thighs. Works with regular strapless bra. Length was just skimming the floor with 3" heels.

Not for a short torso.
This dress didn't fit my body type. Waist portion of the dress needed to be lower on me but my hips were there, so it bunched up and caused the dress to be too short. Even if the dress fit me better, the length would have been a problem. For anyone taller than 5'2 or 5'3 and want to wear high heels order the Long.

Comfortable dress, with elegant flair.
I rented this as an option for a Black Tie gala at a museum. I ended up not wearing this one because I liked my other option better, but this was still a lovely dress. The elegant detail on top, and small back cut out added some nice flair and a sexy touch, without being over-the-top sexy for my formal event. I got the size 2R, and it fit ok, just a little loose at the hips and in the bust (because I don't have much of a bust... a 0R would have been better, but just so you size 0's know- you can still pull off a 2 if they're out of that size ;) With my 4" heels this gown hit the ground perfectly. The flowing skirt looks beautiful when you walk, and the material on the inside is so buttery soft and comfortable like silk or chiffon. Loved it!

Very elegant and comfortable
Monique L'huillier really understands a woman's body. Any dress from her has always been amazing and this one is no exception. The material is luxe and durable and the form accentuates your best parts. There was no need to wear any shapewear underneath. And just the right amount of sparkle. I wore it to the opera and received compliments --from strangers. I felt beautiful and elegant in this dress. I love it and may rent it again in the future.

This dress really gave me the confidence I needed for a great night
This dress was for a formal event and I was looking for a good combination of professionalism/conservative and eye-catching and I think this dress was perfect for that. The heels that I wore were about 4" and the dress was just long enough to make it not look too awkward, but perhaps a 2L would've been better. The dress is very flattering, lays wonderful, is extremely comfortable (I was afraid the lace would be itchy under the arms), and highlights the collar bone and upper back wonderfully. I loved this dress and received so many compliments throughout the night.

LOVED this dress. It was comfortable and I felt awesome in it. I was shocked I fit into the 4.
The dress was a little long, but totally doable in minimal heals. I was concerned it would be too tight in the hips but it fit like a glove (in a good way!). My hips are 38"

The dress was very comfortable and fit perfect. I was able to get away without wearing a bra, because the material was thick and very soft. The 4R was a great length with 2 inch heels and was able to dance and move all night.

Great, classic look!
Overall, fit was great, though it was surprisingly long! I wore the 2R, and I'm 5'4.5", and I still needed 4.5" heels to keep the dress from dragging! I am small-chested and was able to go without a bra as the top was fairly fitted and structured. Great, classic choice for a formal affair!

Nice dress, but was a bit worn out
The dress fit well. The cut gave me a little shape and the back cutout was very flattering, while still being able to wear a low-back bra. The dress is well lined, which helped on a chilly night. The lace of the dress I received had seen better days. The scallop edge kept folding under all night and there were some stray strings. My fiance assured me that this was only noticeable to me, so I wore it anyway.

This dress was perfect for the Christmas Ball. I got so many compliments on how elegant it was!
Both the 4R or 6R would have worked well. The 4R fit a bit more snugly and shapely. The 6R gave a bit more breathing room though. I wore the 4R as it hugged nicely and left less gaps and wrinkly areas in my midsection. The back lent itself to a strapless bra well. Overall, the most comfortable evening gown I've worn in a long time! I felt that it was striking and therefore received many compliments.

The dress looked beautiful, but the size 4L was much too big on me.
I am between a 2 and 4 in most dresses and the 4L was much to big on me. The size 2 was all sold out so I went for the risk, but I had to wear a friends dress instead.

The event was absolutely beautiful and the dress fit the event perfectly even if it was a bit short.
The dress was a little too short for my liking for it to be considered a long. Also the top was a little uncomfortable but other than that, everything was beautiful!

Not too flashy, fit conservatively in the front but hat a hint of sexy with the back detail. Perfect for a winter wedding.
