Monica Dress in Red Matte Jersey Knit

Availability: In stock

$144.00

* Required Fields

The Monica is a wonder of a wiggle! The beautiful crossover bustline features soft, clear elastic to hold it to your skin and allows the sleeves to sit slightly off-shoulder. The fabric is a unique matte knit that will not pill, resists wrinkles, and has beautiful drape and stretch. 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 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.

Excellent site for curvy gals like me! The red Monica dress is incredible! The fit is perfect and I don't have to wear anything underneath, no Spanx or bra! The built-in lining shapes me perfectly, the longer length is extremely slimming! I will be wearing this dress in my Las Vegas one-woman show - The Patsy Clone Review (a tribute to Miss Patsy Cline!) thank you Miss Laura! (Posted on 8/25/2015)

I was so excited waiting for my Monica dress in red, my very first PUG purchase ever, to arrive! I was sad when I went to open the plastic packaging and saw a small black smudge (ink stain?) on the chest, but I knew my size was now sold out so I wanted to try it on anyhow, and I'm a toddler mom so pretty pro at removing stains! Still hoping I will be able to get this one out. The fabric was also not as high quality as I had imagined for the price, but the shapewear lining and the satin of the bust seemed like a nice quality. I tried it on by NOT using the zipper and shimmying into it as many have suggested, and it took some patience, but I was able to fit into it and it felt stretchy and comfortable once on. The only issue, as some have mentioned is a slight bunching to the zipper near the waistline if I don't stand up straight. I should note that I sized down for this dress: I am 40-31-43, so my chest and waist are on the high end for a large and my hips are more like an XL. I tried an L and was pleased with the sizing EXCEPT that I put a centimeter tear in her just above the zipper when I was taking her off. I think I was in too much of a hurry and should have taken her off as slowly as I put her on. I knew this meant I could now not return her, even with the ink smudge stain, so I'm a little bummed overall, but the dress is such a hot look, I'll just take her to the tailor (I think I will just have the zipper removed!) and try to be happy each time I wear her!

Awesome dress. I mean this is a showstopper. I am a curvy girl - UK size 18 so I got 2X/ Perfect fit/ The ruching disguises a million sins, but if you invest in the right torsolette it looks even better. I want this dress in EVERY colour. It makes me feel sexy, feminine, classy and beguiling. What more could a woman want? (Posted on 8/20/2015)

I love this dress-- fits me like a glove, I get tons of compliments on it, and it's fairly comfortable considering I wore it for several hours. The only issue is it makes my hands and legs RED! Like it looks like I've been digging in hot cheeto dust! The longer I wear it, the redder it makes me. A little frustrating! (Posted on 6/29/2015)

Got it in a medium bur I feel I could pull off a small except my hips would be too wide to just shimmy on a small lol the medium looks good! I haven't worn it just yet but I'm very impressed by the material! It's so sturdy! It's very well constructed and I can't wait to wear it! (Posted on 6/3/2015)

As soon as I took this dress out of the packaging I fell in love with it. It's perfect in every way, it even sits beautiful on the hanger. I read lots of reviews before I ordered it, the reviews I read that helped the most was about 1. The sizing and that if your stuck between 2 sizes go for the smaller one. & 2. No underwear is needed. I was searching for the rite bra for under this dress and so glad I didn't waste money on one as the dress gives a fabulous shape, great control & the best boost any dress or bra has ever given me. Which helps when you have a bigger bust. I don't usually go for fitted dresses as I don't feel that comfortable in them but the Monica dress is something else. I felt a million dollars in it, it was comfortable, flattering, sexy & luxurious. Its stunningly made & fabulous quality. Even though the dress ended up costing quite abit after delivery & customs charges (as I'm a UK customer) I cannot wait to order my next Monica dress in another colour. 110% worth every penny. Thank you so much for designing a fabulous dress ❤️ (Posted on 6/2/2015)

I absolutely love this dress! I feel stunning every time I put it on! A total bombshell dress. The price is a bit high considering that we also have to pay a lot in customs, and that the quality isn't the best. The stitching above the zipper is to week, and the bust is tighter than the size charts says, but it is absolutely worth it . It's my go to dress, fits my curves perfectly and turns heads everywhere. Most flattening dress I've ever worn. (Posted on 5/24/2015)

Though I ordered this dress a size bigger than necessary, (as according to previous reviews) it was still flattering without alterations. I do plan to alter as I prefer to have my girls much free(er) than the dress allows as is. The ruching partnered with shaper lining gave the perfect hourglass silluotte.

I never used the zipper, so can't speak on its integrity other than it never felt in jeopardy while slipping in or out of the dress.

Plan on using this beautiful dress again once I find the right venue because I love it so very much. (Posted on 5/17/2015)

I've had this dress on my wish list for a few years and my husband took the plunge and ordered it for my birthday. I'm not a runway model by any means, especially after three kids but this dress convinced me otherwise. Every girl should own a dress like this! The cut is super snug but it is surprisingly comfortable. I was afraid I would not be able to walk easily in it but even in sky high heels I was able to tour the streets of my city with ease. I received compliments and a few lust filled stares from both men and women. The shipping was super fast. The outer fabric has lots of stretch and hangs beautifully. I'm small on the top and a bit bottom heavy (three kids!) but I didn't have a problem filling out the top, nor did I feel like I was falling out. The liner really hold things in without feeling stifling. I wore mine in April but it was unseasonably warm and I didn't overheat or feel chilled. The dress includes and extra zipper for when you accidentally break the one already on the dress. (Thank God) My only complaint is the price. Once you convert it to Canadian currency it hurts but you definitely do get what you paid for. All in all this dress is an absolute winner and a must have for anyones closet. (Posted on 5/10/2015)

Wearer: 5'3" 44-31-45, size ordered:XL This dress fit my daughter like it was made for her, and we didn't even have to bother with a bra, which is a MIRACLE as she wears a 36H. The bengaline inside molds your shape just so, and classic style means she can wear it forever. She looked so bombshell and glam, I think I'll purchase one for myself! (Posted on 5/1/2015)

I never, ever, buy clothing online because I have issues with fitting and I hate the hassle of returns (I'm located in France) but I had to have this dress for my civil ceremony. I was torn between the small and medium. I chatted with a shop adviser who told me to take the medium because of my waist measurement and I was going to until they sold out. I ordered the small and I'm glad I did. I like my wiggle dresses to be tighter and I believe the medium would have been too loose for my liking and also way too big in the bust (I'm a 36B). My measurements are 35-27/28-37/38 and the small fits me well. However, I have broader shoulders and my thighs/hips are relatively small. I wiggled into the dress like everyone suggested and I have to tug a bit to get it over my hips but when it's on properly, it feels great. It's definitely snug but not skin tight. The dress doesn't do much for me when I go bra-less but when I wear a strapless bra it gives me cleavage but at the same time crushes my chest. I don't know if this is the fault of the bra or the dress or both but I'm determined to make it work. In any case, I'm still happy with the purchase.

So I have been eyeballing this dress for about...idk it feels like forever, so when they had a sale, I just lost my mind and bought three dresses. It got to me in about five days, which made me feel like it was Christmas! I bought the Monica in red and in black thinking I can't go wrong with my two favorite /best colors to wear...Best. Clothes. Purchase. Ever. Seriously ever. I want to wear these dresses all the time, every chance I can. I almost want to build a shrine closet for these beautiful and well made dresses...I am seriously considering it, they deserve a special place.
I am a buxom, curvy lady at 6 feet tall, with hips and a 34DD top, I ordered a medium based on a previous purchase. I wasn't sure if this dress would fit or even look good, but my, o my, was the gamble worth it!!! This dress you definitely have to wiggle into, it felt like a work out to get it over the girls...but once I was on...WOW!!!!!! That is all I have to say. I recommend literally wiggling into it and then using the zipper to get out of the dress...it's not easy but saves the zipper. I felt like a Marilyn Monroe bombshell supermodel!!
So for buxom ladies, a bra probably isn't necessary, which I found liberating, but it kinda does smash the girls down a bit...and honestly with how willy nilly mine can get, it does them good to be caged in. It is quite long, it goes past my knees, so my petite lady friends, you will need to tailor that, it will be longer than you expect. I love the fact it goes past my knees with how tall I am, cuz it honestly doesn't happen, like ever it seems.
I recommend this to basically any woman going for a classy, chic, sexy look...be careful, this dress could be responsible for another baby boom! (Posted on 4/17/2015)

The zipper broke the first time it was tried on. This was done even being very careful as it came with an extra zipper and directions on how to be careful with the zipper. Apparently the company knows the zipper is garbage if this is the case. Brought it to a seamstress and had the zipper taken out and just sewn shut so the dress now slips over. The dress looks good but the sides of the boobs don't fit very smooth and look a little boxy. Overall the dress looks good but the zipper should be changed or removed and the chest liner should be smoother. (Posted on 4/11/2015)

I've never worn any dress that has gotten me so compliments as this dress has. Fits beautifully, the colour is delicious. I'm a extra curvy gal and I could maybe even go down a size because of the stretch in the fabric but it fits great as is. The construction of the dress is of excellent quality and it's absolutely worth every penny! I'm considering picking it up in other colours. Love love love this dress! (Posted on 4/5/2015)

I'm neither red headed nor extravagantly voluptuous. But the instant I wiggled into this dress, I instantly felt like Jessica Rabbit- wildly sexy and confident. It hugged every bit of me in the most beautiful way. There is literally no room for improvement on this dress. Sometimes when I have a bad day and I just want to feel pretty, I just put on this dress for a little while. It's magical (Posted on 3/21/2015)

This dress is beautiful, flattering, and amazing. I DO think it is overpriced, especially since I had to pay an additional $40 to tailor it to perfect.
I got the XL, I'm 5'6, 42-36-41 and it fits perfectly. DO NOT USE THE ZIPPER! Order your correct size and step into the dress, shimmy it up. I had to remove the lining at the bust, as Im a size 38DD and the lining SQUISHED my girls in a very unflattering way. I had the tailor do it, as well as take the hem up about 2-3", it is VERY long. I can't WAIT to show off with my BF in this stunner! (Posted on 3/20/2015)
