Laura Byrnes California Monica Dress in Red

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.

Great dress! Very sexy and hugs my curves in all the right places. I followed the size chart which indicated I was a XXL (I measure 34H in the chest). When I got the dress it was way too big. I wanted the red and they were out of smaller sizes, so got it taken in... (Posted on 9/27/2016)

This dress is absolutely amazing. The colour is a gorgeous 'true red'. It holds everything where it should be nicely! I could not get over how quick the shipping was all the way to Australia, practically blinked and it had arrived! Well done PUG...I'm hooked! (Posted on 5/21/2016)

Very happy with dress, well made and fits beautifully - though bit of a dance getting in at first and the other half had to help with the zip. But once in, fantastic - moulds to your curves and lots of structure to keep everything where it should be. Though as a 14DD, I noticed the bodice flattened me out a little bit, but not too much to be a major issue.
I'm a curvy 14 and 14DD in chest, X/L worked for me. But it is a firm fit. (Posted on 5/10/2016)
Looks Fabulous!Review by Mariah

I ordered this dress with some trepidation - I'd never had a wiggle dress before and have difficulties with pinup-style dresses fitting around my rib cage; I was also concerned that it would be too long and make my legs look short.

I needed a red dress for an event and so had to order an XS, rather than a Small, which I might otherwise have ordered. It fit like a dream. I'm 32C, about a 26-27 waist, and hips around 36'ish. I'm 5'6" and weigh 120 - other than being a little snug in the armholes (I have pretty square shoulders), it fit perfectly - especially in the bust. The bengaline lining creates an internal corset that made for a great shape.

I'm shaped rather like a shoebox, without many curves, and this dress actually gave me some curves. It was fabulous - a stranger even came up and complimented me on how great I looked. My only complaint is the invisible zipper - I hate them as they're notoriously difficult to zip, and I initially had the same concern with this dress, but I was able to get it zipped without too much stress.

If you're on the fence, I would definitely give this a try. (Posted on 4/5/2016)

I have not worn this beautiful dress yet because the event I bought it for isn't until the end of this month. I did try it on and WOW! The fit is fabulous, the quality is excellent and with care will take you through many evenings to come. A clutch, the right pair of heels, a little bling and you'll have all eyes on you with this sassy number. I bought one for my daughter in lavender and this red creation is mine :o) (Posted on 4/5/2016)
Kinda bummed out. Review by April

I have been drooling over this dress for a year now. So I finally caved in and purchase the dress. I went off my measurements which determined I was a 2X. I should have sized down. Either I was measured incorrectly or the dress runs big either way the dress didn't fit correctly. If you are a short woman like I am the dress will be way too long. I am 5'2 and the dress almost was at my ankles. So I had to get it taken up a lot. Which is nonsense considering the price that you're already paying for it. Now I have to pay another $60 so it isn't too long. The dress is heavy so be prepared for that. I should also say that the dress doesn't look exactly like the picture. The bottom is much different then the picture. I just hope once it is taken up I'll like the dress more. (Posted on 4/4/2016)

I read loads of blogs online, and spent ages decided whether to size up or size down. Luckily a friend of mine had the monica dress in a size M so I was able to try it on, after being pleasantly surprised at the amount of stretch in the material and how roomy it was I took the plunge and went for the Small. I'm so glad I did! Being that little bit more figure hugging means it is much more flattering and the ruching hides all the fat bits! I measured a size M and the tiny measurements for the S scared the hell out of me, I'm trying to shift a bit of weight before the Monica receives it's debut but paired with a corset I think it will look FAB!

The Monica dress is ultimate in sexy. I absolutely love it, that I will order another one in a different color. This dress is VERY WELL MADE and worth every penny.

Perfect and fits like a glove. The most beautiful dress I have ever own. Just this has to be tried with different kinda bras.. at least I need double your size bra under it, cause otherwise it kinda looks, that my boobs disappear, but luckily those kinda bras exist :) (Posted on 12/7/2015)
