Laura Byrnes California Monica Dress in Black

Availability: In stock

$144.00
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.

Please note, we do not recommend pulling the dress over your head due to the shaper. For the best fit shimmy into your dress without using the zipper.

Amazing fit once you get it onReview by Sophia

This dress is AMAZING once you get it on!
I ordered in a Large, following the measurement guide. I couldn't get it on by myself the first time because my bust size is just outside the fit, so the recommended pull-over method wasn't quite working for me. With assistance I was able to get it on, and damn! Super comfortable and fits well--I'm always curvaceous, and this dress shows it off!
As someone else has noted, it does flatten in the chest a bit in profile, but from the front it's all cleavage all the time. Definitely worth the effort (and expense) to have a really nice, really flattering special occasion dress. (Posted on 10/14/2016)
Too difficult to get on and offReview by How do you get this dress on?

I was very excited to get this dress, but was so disappointed when I realized it's almost impossible to get on. I definitely ordered the right size, but found it very difficult to shimmy over my hips (as recommended) or over my boobs the other way. It looked good once on, but I honestly just felt claustrophobic because I knew I would need help to get it off and was tempted to use scissors. This was my first time to order this designer so perhaps it's just not the brand for me. I will return it and stick to dresses with full zippers! (Posted on 9/21/2016)

I finally got the monica dress and I am not disappointed ♡♡ I have never felt more gorgeous and glamorous than I do in this dress ♡ a little tricky to wiggle into but once you're in you're golden :D also as I've heard from other girls it does squish my boobs kinda flat but it makes up for it by looking great on the top lol every woman needs this dress. Do yourself a favour and put it in your cart, it makes you feel like a million dollars!♡

For anyone curious I'm 5'4" 127lbs 35x27x39 and I purchased a size Small :) (Posted on 9/7/2016)

As many of you may be, I was a bit sceptical about buying a this expensive dress without trying it first, but I didn't get disappointed!

I ordered the size M, but since my measures were from the very upper scale of the M's sizechart, I was quite worried about if it could fit. I usually use European sizes M/36-38. And to be honest, getting in this fabulous piece of sausage casing was a bit troublesome, but I managed! When I got the dress pas my breast, the rest went very easily down :D So don't give up too easily!

And do I even have to say it? I totally love it. (Posted on 6/30/2016)

This dress is a beautiful style, fits well and is made of good quality material, looks fabulous on!!! I was worried about the invisible zipper so pulled it on and this worked fine!! only issue is that the chest area did not fit so well - I think this will be easily fixed with the right bra/corset however, but bigger chests may find it flattens rather than uplifts.

Overall very happy!! (Posted on 5/10/2016)

I had been dreaming of buying this dress for ages and bought it for a special occasion. To me, this is the ultimate little black dress and I loved everything about the design but when it arrived and I put it on, it surpassed all of my expectations. I have never loved a garment more because I've never experienced wearing something that fits so well, that makes me feel so confident, feminine and sexy (or that has gotten me more compliments!). I had an a piffany; this is what clothes should do whether you're wearing a dress, a shirt, trousers or a skirt. The Monica dress raised the bar for me for what I look for in clothing now because when you have that first real' good experience with a garment, you kno there's no going back. I also realized that if I truly love a piece of clothing and a style so much, I should not only wear a dress like this for special occasions. This dress has inspired me to become more confident to express my femininity at all times. Honestly, I think the price is very reasonable and I would have happily paid even more for a dress so perfect. I also had a very smooth ordering and shipping experience and the dress arrived as expected. PUG.com has made a life-long customer out of me with this darling of a dress! (Posted on 5/9/2016)

I have never reviewed a product in my life before, but this dress is so incredible that I felt compelled to say so.

I'm 5'8, 135 pounds and I purchased the red in a small.

It came so quickly and fit so well! I'm going to order it in black ASAP. I love it that much!

I feel like a 50's sex goddess in this dress. I cannot believe what this dress does for my figure!

If you have ever wanted to feel like a vamp, this dress is the one to buy. (Posted on 4/29/2016)

I bought this dress for my Halloween wedding this October after searching forever for the perfect black wedding dress. I put it on and instantly fell in love. It is the most flattering thing I have ever put on my body. I'm 5'2 and 100 pounds and the XS fits perfect! I could not be more excited to wear this dress! (Posted on 4/20/2016)
