Felt a little '80's but fun

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Formal Affair
Itchy. Better for someone w/ a large bust. I'm 34D w/ a small waist and it was roomy up top.

Fun and flirty. Definitely unique!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Party
This dress was on my list for months! I finally had a great time to wear it! The waist was snug and fit well. The top was toooooo large and even with a push-up bra, was gaping all night with the boning. The fun flouncy skirt was not even close to the architectural detail I was hoping for. Too soft, maybe needed an extra press to accent the detail of the layers of this dress. The color was perfect with a tan and a fun party dress, but the fit was too awkward to feel comfy.

Vibrant & Flirty

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Formal Affair
Really vibrant color and comfortable enough to dance the night away. The top was a challenge for DD but stayed in place. Being 5'4", the skirt was not as short as on the model. Reached closer to my knees. Received tons of complements.

Best dress yet!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Rented this dress for carnival party. It was perfect! Comfortable and flattering. It covers your stomach. I could dance, eat, and drink with no problem. It was hard to zip! I needed help both times I put it on and it was still difficult! Also the fabric rubs a little under the arms but nothing I couldn't handle. The wow and perfection of this dress made it worth it.

Wore dress for my engagement shoot

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large

Fit was okay, dress slid down a bit, bust area may be too roomy for small chested ladies. I have large bust and it felt just okay. Great color but dress is a little worn on the side hooks-they kept getting undone because they are too weak.

Pretty but expected more.

Size runs large. Zipper was hard to get up no matter the size. Looks better on model as the dress was much longer on me as I am shorter. Tulle was a little itchy on the top. Wish it was a bit less poofy as well.

Be ready to be the life of the party!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The color pops and wows- goes great with a strong lip color and edgy minimal shoes and accessories. This is a dress you can not fade into the background in! Its not as short as it looks on the model, but I am petite so the long layers came to my knees. The peplum structure works well and is flattering- but I found the 4 was a bit loose in the bust area (and I am a 34 C+) and the 2 would just not even zip up.

The color is incredible. Thousands of complements. Strangers stopped to say how much they loved it.

I got the 8 which was a tad too big. The six would have been perfect. The color is incredible. Just a fun, flirty dress to wear.

great dress, overall

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I thought for sure I'd wear a 4, but I wore the 2- so this dress runs a little large. The bodice part is quite transparent, which I wasn't stoked about, because I had to wear a strapless bra. It definitely isn't as structured looking on top as in the picture; looks cheaper in person. But, it was fitting for the party I went to and I got a ton of compliments.

Pretty color, but didn't end up wearing the dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I think is color is nice on this dress but that's about it. I didn't end up wearing it because I didn't think it was special enough for the event I was attending. The tulle edges were extremely flat and just hung down and the dress is much longer than I thought based on the photos. It is really an unflattering length in my opinion being neither short nor long. There was nothing flattering to my figure when wearing this dress as it gave me no shape. Probably one of my least favorite RTR rentals.

Loved this dress. Wonderful balance of sass and class.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Had tried on the 2 in-store, which was just slightly too tight so I thought the 4 would be perfect but it gaped around the bust and I literally could pull 4 inches of fabric together. (honestly think this might have been mislabeled or else Monique has a big gap between her sizes). Silver accessories were a must. Wore my hair up with a statement earring. Absolutely lovely!

BEAUTIFUL COLOR!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The color is amazing and the dress is gorgeous after some ironing but the size... chaotic. I usually wear a 4 and order as a second size 6 just to be sure. the 6 was HUGE and the 4 was HUGE as well! I wore it anyway because I had no other options but i had to wear double sided tape everywhere to get the dress to stay on! Would have definitely gone for a 2.

Crushed 80's prom in this dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Don't judge, but I attended an 80's prom a few weekends ago. This dress rocked for the theme. Did JEM style makeup and there was no turning back. Hard to see this being an option outside of theme wear, but not impossible. It's a 2 but I fit into it with no problem with not spilling out of the top so I'd say it runs large.
