Beautiful color

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress was lovely but ran very small in bust so I couldn't make the 4 or the 6 work without showing a lot under boob. The cut outs are higher than I imagined them to be, so keep that in mind if you have a larger chest. Beautiful color and lovely lace back. Super disappointed I couldn't make this one work!

Sending the dress back and getting my credit was simple, rtr makes it very hassle free

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is beautiful, great material. The size 4 was a little longer than I hoped, it came to a couple inches above the knee and it was a little baggy in my hips, not form fitting like in the picture. The real problem though was the top, if I didn't move the dress looked great but because of the material and the long sleeves I wasn't able to lift my arms past shoulder level. It was uncomfortable and definitely wouldn't have allowed for dancing at the wedding I was going to. I didn't even try on the 6 because the bottom would have been way too big. I didn't end up wearing either sizes.

Pretty dress. Fits very tight on the top.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I did not get my back up size of 8 so only received the 6. There is no give in the sleeves at the armpits so if done up snuggly you can't move your arms. Therefore, I did not wear it and promptly returned it prior to my event on Saturday night.

Not what I expected

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was beautiful and fit true to size. Very pretty color. It was a bit longer than I expected but my issue was that it was a lot heavier. I was sweating in this just walking around my apt. The lace sleeves were beautiful but I couldn't lift my arms up past my shoulders so I knew it was not going to work for my indoor, dance-party wedding. Given the lace, I was worried this dress was going to be a little too risque but I ended up feeling a lot more mother-of-the-bride being so covered up. I was over nighted another dress that worked out perfectly for my event. Would recommend this for a formal affair that you're not going to be moving around a lot at.

can't move your arms!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress itself is very pretty however it isn't made very well........i literally couldnt move my arms at all. there's something wrong with the cut of the arms by the arm pit that restricts your motion in a way that is not just annoying its downright unwearable! bummer because the color and the lace are beautiful. maybe they can do some alterations on them?

Beautiful Dress but...

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved the color and lace of this dress, but the shoulders were tight and I didn't feel like I would have been comfortable dancing in it, so I chose not to wear it. Also, it was a little shorter than I expected. Another disappointment, but I won't give up on RTR.

Dress wasn't at all how it looked in the photo- didn't wear.

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The top of this dress for well and was very pretty. However, the bottom of this dress didn't seem to fit the style at all. In the photo it looks like a bodycon- type dress but it is not at all bodycon. I have a decent size butt and the bottom of this dress was baggy. It also starts falling away from the body right under the bust, which on me, looked like I was pregnant. I was really disappointed because the color is beautiful.

Great dress; not a great fit

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I was so excited for this dress, especially the fact that fellow well-endowed RTR members swore no bra was necessary. I ordered the 8 and the 10. The 8 was a perfect fit up top (and they were right about the no bra!) but too tight for comfort on the bottom, to the point where you could see the outline of the Spanx (which were definitely necessary). The 10 was a little more comfortable on the bottom, but too loose on the top -- the cups didn't stay in place and you could see the outline of my sideboob through the lace overlay. Overall, the dress is made very well with thick material (although the slip didn't stay in place) and it would have been perfect for a winter wedding. I ended up having to wear a dress I already owned since it was too late to order a replacement.

Beatiful dress! Love the lace!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Beautiful dress, but too small! They did not have a back up size 2 when I placed my order, and since I usually wear a size 0 in dresses from Express, I hoped this 0 would fit. I am 5'4", 127 lbs with an athletic build and could not zip the dress up all the way in the back- I couldnt even pull the zipper together! The lacy sleeves do not have much give or stretch in them and were very tight over my arms and shoulders. The dress fit perfect through my hips and thighs. I think a size 2 would have been perfect. Great cobalt blue color!

Beware of boobs showing through side cut-outs

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
As other reviews state, ladies with larger chests should be careful with the under-boob/side boob being revealed. I used Bare Lifts to give my breasts the needed boost so they wouldn't show through the lace cut-outs on the side. Still you have to be careful not to place the Bare Lifts too high because you don't want the Bare Lifts to show through the lace on top of the bodice. If you put in the effort to make sure it works for your bust, it's a beautiful dress in a striking color. I was very happy with it.

Do NOT recommend for Smaller sizes

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
Well, I was absolutely in LOVE with this dress, But it didn't fit :(. It fit really well at the top but it was super saggy at the bottom. Overall, I was satisfied with it besides the fit. And RTR is extremely great with costumer service, I would recommend this company to anyone. But, I recommend this dress for a pear shape girl.

Doesn't work for athletic build+wide shoulder

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Party
Fabric doesn't stretch at all (as you see - it's all lacey) - if you got athletic build with defined, wide shoulder + rib cage, you won't be able to move your arms. Not even to the level so you can give people hugs. I ended up no wearing it. Dress itself runs true to size. You may consider sizing up - I wear 12, and that is the biggest one RTR offers. It's pretty blue though!

Club vibe

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Wedding
It is a pretty dress that had been picked out by a stylist for a wedding that I would attend. It is a pretty color bright blue giving it a fun vibe but with the side cut outs it makes it feel much more like something you'd opt to wear at a club than at a wedding. This is probably my least favorite Monique L'huiller dress. That said it is still pretty, just not for what I was wanting.

Arms are really snug

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

This dress was shipped to me as a backup to another dress (different style) and I, unfortunately, couldn't wear it. The dress had a good fit but the arms were WAY too tight! I couldn't lift my arms past my chest.
