Monica Dress in Black and Silver Lurex Knit

Availability: In stock

$186.00

* Required Fields

One of the most glamourous dresses we've ever made, the Monica in Lurex Jersey is an absolute wonder. A built-in stretch Bengaline shaper for the bust, waist, and lower hip gives support, structure, and holds you in, while the gathered outer fabric disguises the internal structure and gives you a sleek and clean silhouette. The beautiful crossover bustline features soft, clear elastic to hold it to your skin and allows the sleeves to sit slightly off-shoulder. The result is an incredibly sexy and attention grabbing wiggle dress with the structure to have you looking your best. An invisible side zipper keeps the shape clean, so please use the size chart for your proper size.

Beautiful but difficult to fitReview by JJ

I wish I could love this dress. It is gorgeous and really well made, but for a "pinup" dress, it's not terribly bust-friendly. (It's also not petite-friendly, but that's a personal issue...y'know, for the 50% of the population that's under 5'4"...but I digress). So, the specs. I am 5'0" tall, approx. 37-28-37, 30FF/32F bra, and usually wear a size 6P. Based on other reviews, I went up a size and ordered the medium. This seemed to be the correct size, and I had no problems shimmying into it even without using the zipper, if I stepped into it from the top. The it was a touch long on me, as I always expect--and I didn't mind, since I bought it to wear to a formal event. It was also long in the torso on me. The waist fell about 2" below my natural waist. Not a dealbreaker, but (a) I would have been yanking it back into place all night and (b) it made me wish it came in petites sizes (see: 50% statistic, above. Seriously, look it up). Now, this aside, the dress was hella flattering from ankles to hips to waist to arms to ribs to...Uh oh. The bust looked...okay from the front once I swooped and scooped and tucked and re-tucked and shimmied and stomped around and settled. It sort of had the Renaissance Faire effect of creating cleavage by squashing, rather than lifting. But from the side? WHERE DID MY BOOBS GO? WHY IS MY STOMACH BIGGER THAN MY BOOBS? I tried again with my Wonderbra Ultimate Strapless Bra beneath--a miracle of structural engineering if there ever was one, and the dress actually CRUSHED the hard plastic inner structure of the bra! So, regretfully, I'm sending the dress back. It's a gorgeous piece, but the designer really needs to re-engineer the inner bra structure. (Note, I ordered this in black/silver and champagne/silver and am posting the same review on both.) (Posted on 7/6/2015)

Hot Dang this dress is babalicious! I wore it to my older sisters wedding and got mobbed with compliments and questions about where I got such a glamorous getup. I am a size 2XL/16 and am 5'7" , with measurements of 45-35-48 , and this dress definitely showed off all my favourite bits while covering up my bashful areas like a pro. The lining does such a great job of smoothing and supporting I felt like I didn't even need undies let alone shapewear, but when I buy this dress in white for my wedding next year I think I'm going to just go all Jessica Rabbit cartoony by pairing it with a corset just to explode all minds and eyes within a 10k radius.

Warning, this dress makes you deliriously confident. I AM THE SEXIEST WOMAN ALIVE!!!!! (while wearing the dress that is.... trust me you'll want to scream the same thing once you slip it on yourself)

Way to go, Laura Byrnes. You're making us ladies look and feel like goddesses from Old Hollywood one stitch at a time. <3

ALSO... this dress is the perfect balance of vintage and classic. Sometimes vintage inspired dresses can look "costumey" for lack of a better word. This dress just looks elegant and sexy and timeless. No regrets. (Posted on 7/4/2015)
Fab dress - helpful hintsReview by Sweetsinger26

the dress is fabulous. Fabulous. Fabulous. I have a 2X based on my measurements, but my normal dress size is a 14/16. Here's the deal - you have to adjust and play with the fabric. The interior lining is doubled, and the seam faces the outside of the dress, not in toward the breasts, so be weary of that. It might look a little funny. Play with the shoulders, because they can either accentuate your bust or diminish it. Also, pull the liner down from the waist, it tends to gather when you slip the dress on. WEAR A SHAPER. ANY SHAPER. I almost returned the dress after trying it on without one. Do these small things - I guarantee you'll be ecstatic! (Posted on 1/16/2015)

I have been wanting this amazing dress in this colour for awhile now but was out of stock,i ordered this dress on Friday boxing day sales and it arrived the following Tuesday to Australia ! The only issue i have is it is a little longer on me as i am short 5'3 so i may get it taken up.I have the 2xl as i ordered the black Monica awhile ago in a 3xl going by measurements and it was just to big...i personally recommend going down a size...2xl fits nice a snug in all the right places (Posted on 1/1/2015)

I loved the photos of this dress, I already had the gold Monica so I ordered it. But when it came it was much lighter than I thought it was going to be. Very silver, not much black at all. It is a pretty dress, and if I didn't already have the gold I'd keep it. It's so similar to the gold it doesn't make sense to keep it at the price it is. As far as the sizing I've found to make the chest fit properly for a natural chest you need to go down a size because the chest sits very high and to get a large chest to sit that high without a bra you need the tightness.

Hi
wow what a dress. very nice. surprised to have all the support underneath but that was great!! i have a problem with one of the bra cups. it is sewn a little off and won't fit like the other one. not sure what i will be able to do about that. the dress was a lot more silver/grey than i anticipated. i thought it would be more black with silver but it was vice a versa. i wear a 2x in PUG and they are just roomy enough but that is fine with me.
thought the dress was a little expensive. i hope they fix the bra thingy cuz others obviously had same issue. i will keep it...my husband loves it. service was good as i received the dress very quickly. (Posted on 2/28/2014)

I live in Australia & so wait impatiently for my PUG to arrive., but it does & super fast too! When I received this dress, to be honest I thought "it doesn't look like much" when I took it out of the bag. Then I put it on & OMG! Va-va-voom! Transformation! As I'm not very tall it's longer on me but it COMPLETELY does everything it should in all the right places! I actually could have gone down a size for a little tighter fit, but it's coming to winter here so a bit of room too move is fine. I CANNOT WAIT to wear this out. PUG you can do no wrong! And you make every girl no matter their size feel & look AHHHHMMMAAAZZZZIIINNNNGGG! 5 stars from moi!

I imported this dress to the UK. When it came, I loved it, but it looked tiny! I need not have worried though, the design makes you look fabulous! Will be buying many more! Fantastic service, ordered on Friday, it came on Monday! (Posted on 1/3/2014)

I bought this dress and awaited it's arrival with great excitement like a child on Christmas morning but I was rather disappointed when it arrived. I already own the Monica dress in black and I have left a smoking hot review for it. For some reason this dress just didn't meet my expectations of what I already had for the black dress. It just didn't have the same WOW factor for me that the black dress had and the fit felt off. Needless to say I returned it and bought two other dress with the refund...I think that the price tag is rather steep considering the other dresses are $140. (Posted on 12/4/2013)
beautiful but...Review by IRINA

I will keep it because it is beautiful and I will make it work. But it will take some alterations. My measurements are 39.5, 31, 40/ 5'4'' and 159 lb and I got size L. My boobs were flattened but in the way that was sexy (yeah I know it sounds strange), However, there are some strange sharp corners forming on the sides of my boobs by the underneath shell. But nothing little tailoring wouldn't fix. Now, my main problem was the hidden zipper. I felt that it was not necessary to put the dress on deformed that side of the silhouette. It was bending sharply at the curves make it look like fat rolls. It would be much better off on the back. But I will be removing it completely. So all the issues I had, were related to the shaping shell. Having said all that, for a little extra this dress will make you look like a movie star. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I already have the red Monica and have been waiting for this one and the champagne to come out, the colour is vey flattering. It`s very elegant dress, I cant` wait to wear it for a wedding I have in December! I think though that the fit is slightly more snug than the red Monica so it took a bit more effort to put it on, but it still fits perfect not too tight, to take it off I unzipped it.

This dress is a stunner!! I wear a 12-14 (36 F) and I ordered an XL. It fit just fine, but it was snug. Not uncomfortable, but pay attention to that size chart. Very accurate. The inner fabric really makes it unnecessary for supportive undergarments. I don't even need to wear a bra! It takes a bit of effort to get this dress on and off, but it's worth it. If you are on the fence about this dress, go for it! (Posted on 12/4/2013)
