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. New updated design without a zipper allows you to wiggle in.

This is a dress every woman should own. The fit is just amazing, hugging you in all the right curves! I might order it in another colour!

since the reviews are so positive, I decided to take the plunge and order the Monica. I chose black, thinking it's univerasially flattering, can be worn for different occasions, essentially (another) LBD. I still believe the above to be true, just not for me. I returned my dress, it just didn't suit my body shape. I have a "saddlebag" area that it wasn't very flattering, otherwise, I think I would've kept it. The top half looked great, the bottom half meh. (For reference, I ordered a size large, I'm 5'7" 170lbs, 36-30-41) I feel ok with this, *so* many others look amazing! I'll just stick to a Jenny style dress, it suits me better.

The issues I had with it (non-style wise) was that I really wish it had a zipper. I think the older version may have had a zipper (don't quote me) and I think I would've preferred that. The stuggle was real getting that sucker up. I felt like I ran a marathon and had to take a break mid wiggle! I felt too confined with my thighs being pressed together (maybe it's a larger thigh problem?), the only thought I had was "I'm never going to be able to pee in this. Don't drink anything!" Getting out of it was an experience. Don't think you can wiggle sexy for your partner exiting this dress...I had to get one cheek out at a time for fear of ripping. I'm pretty sure at one moment I thought I was going to die in it. Or cut it off and take the monetary loss.
I purchased it on sale (20% off), and got free shipping, so I'm not complaining about the price I paid, I don't think, actually feeling the product and material, it's worth full price. It's very spandex-y stretchy (which you need!) and that to me makes it feel of a lesser quality. But then again, I'm not a dress maker, so maybe this style needs to be in this material to get the stunning result. I also thought, from other reviews, that it had an inner structure, specifically around the mid section and up, which it does not.

I love the new zipperless design. This a gorgeous dress even on us pear shaped girls. I was on the high end of the large size but held my ground & ordered a large. I'm glad I did. I am 5'7, 158 lbs 38/30/41. Fits like a dream!

This dress makes you feel amazing! The new zipper free design makes it a tad bit harder to put on. But, it is totally worth the extra time to get dressed to feel like a million bucks!

My measurements are 34-27-36. I bought a small!

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.
 

How do you get this dress on?

Too difficult to get on and off

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!

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 :)

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.

All the reviews I read helped a lot. I ordered a Medium - it is the best online purchase I've ever made. The dress was totally what I expected and it fit me like a glove. love the material and the dress hides and puts you all together. So in love with it.
