Monica Dress in Black 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.

If you are thinking about this dress don't. If you are not sure be sure. If you think you can spend you money better on another dress...forget it. This is the best designed dress I have ever had on my body in my entire life. I was unsure because I actually thought is looked a bit mumsy..believe it or not! but it is anything but. This is a wonder creation that will do something for your body that has never been done before. It hugs lifts supports moves and yet it is super comfortable. I also think that is it stretchy enough to go down a size if you are in-between sizes. I am a 27 to 28 waist and I still fit comfortably into the xs. It is a flawless creation. Do it, you will not be sorry you did (Posted on 12/17/2015)

Where do I even start with the Monica???

I have admired it from afar for a LONG time, but was always suspicious about the bra situation... I've never really been comfortable in a strapless bra (38H) and worried about my boobs sagging and swallowing my waist, making this dress look like a barrel on me.

I finally bit the bullet and bought one in basic black, and I can tell you now, it will NOT be my last Monica!!

The construction and design of this dress is like rocket science!! Easily one of the most comfortable dresses you will ever have on your body, yet firm, constructed and supportive all at once.

I am the kind of girl that does not leave the house without shapewear, as I just like feeling held together, and although I will wear it under my Monica, you honestly could get away without it if shapewear is not your thing! This dress has BUILT IN shapewear through the torso!!

So supportive in the bust that I could just slip my bra straps off my shoulders inside the sleeve line of the dress and my girls just STAYED THERE!!! I nearly fell over in shock!!!

I love the sleeves, I love the length, I love the fabric, in fact there is not a single thing I don't LOVE about this dress!!

A staple for everyone's wardrobe!!!

After reading every review for this dress I was a bit worried about the sizing of it. I went ahead and ordered a size up (L) and was not disappointed in the fit. I didn't use the zipper but shimmied my way into it and had no problems getting into it. This dress is amazing on, it's sexy without being revealing. It's very comfortable and is suited for a winter party since it has a bit of weight to it. Highly recommend but would suggest ordering a size larger than your typical dress.

I'm 5'10", and a size 14/16, and I ordered the 2XL because I'm quite pear shaped. I love this dress so much. I bought it for myself as a birthday present, and I keep coming up with excuses to wear it. It fits like a glove, and it's super flattering in all the right places. It's definitely made to show off your curves! I love the fit, and the material is heavy, so it's great to wear in the cooler months. It is a little looser in the bust for me, but the bottom half fits perfectly, so I just wear a corset, or a push up bra under it. I can't say enough good things about this dress, and I always get a ton of compliments and comments on it whenever I wear it. And, best of all, it makes me feel like a fox! Treat yourself!

Really versatile, comfortable, elegant dress. I wore it for Halloween to be Elvira, but it will be great for holiday parties, etc. Infrastructure gives really nice shaping- added a Rago waist cincher for polish - I'm a G cup and I wore this without trouble without a bra. 5'6" - finishes below the knee. A really nice piece of technology- good work, ladies! (Posted on 11/20/2015)

I just wore this dress for a performance with my band. I looked and felt amazing. I received so many compliments. I'm 5'2" 35 (32D), 27, 37. While many say you don't need undergarments with this, I prefer to wear it with a push up bra and a shaper. I can even wear my steel boned corset under this! The ruching hides it! Because I'm short I hemmed it up 3 inches. It now hits right below my knee which is a really flattering length! Va Va Voom! (Posted on 11/8/2015)

I was super excited to see this dress get delivered so fast, thank you!

Quality:
The quality of the dress is, alright. It arrived to my door smelling strongly of glue.
The zipper on the side of the dress is hard to budge and looks very easy to break (or get stuck on the fabric)

Fit and comfort
The fit is perfect, I got the size I would just fit in to because I'm losing the weight and it fits like a glove. The shaper makes the dress a little warm, but that's fine. It was a little longer than I expected it to be.

Price
Not worth the amount I spent honestly.
I had to pay over $200 just for the dress because I had to convert American dollar to the Aussie, then pay almost $30 just for shipping.

Value
The quality of the dress if fine, but honestly not worth the amount I spent.

Needed a dress for New Years's Eve. This dress fit the bill. With rhinestone large earrings and braclet you are ready to go. Read all the reviews and ordered a small. I am not large busted, but this dress looks great on me. If you are worried about the shoulders, don't be they stay in place. I would recomend this dress. I feel like Marilyn Monroe!!

Dress is great, but shaper makes you feel really warmReview by SamShoe
Quality

The dress fits beautifully and is quite flattering - even for us curvier women. However, with the interior shaper the dress makes you really warm. I was a bit uncomfortable in my 70ish (no A/C) bedroom with it on. I purchased this dress to wear it at a wedding next weekend in Atlanta. But unfortunately, I think I will feel way too warm wearing it. And forget trying to dance in it. So although I love the look of the dress, I am not sure I will have many opportunities to wear it.

I also wish I had know about the interior zipper before trying the dress on. I only saw the zipper card in the bag after I had the dress on. When I looked at the zipper it appeared some of the stitching was coming undone. Not sure this happened while I was putting it on or if the stitching at the top of the zipper was of poor quality. Now I will need to find a seamstress (or a friend that knows how to sew) to make sure the zipper is properly attached to the dress.

The dress now hangs on my closet door and I continue to stare at the "little black dress" that I planned to wear to the wedding, but can't now. I guess I am back to one of my old stand-by dresses instead. Feeling a bit bummed out. (Posted on 9/28/2015)
This Dress is AMAZING!Review by Mel

I am not a person who typically writes reviews. However, this dress is not your typical dress. My shape is not an hourglass like the models on the website. I am curvy (busty) with a thicker waist and smaller hips/ bottom. When other reviews talked about how this dress gave them a shape, I thought...we'll see. Well, it's no joke. I received it last night and tried it on without any undergarments. I couldn't believe my eyes! The built in shaper held in my less than flat stomach, actually gave me a waist and....wait for it....supported my 38 DD bust without a bra. I haven't worn a dress without a bra since probably the 4th grade! For reference, I ordered an XL. I maybe could have gotten away with the large, but the chest may have been a little tight. I seriously plan to order several other colors. It is that good. Do not hesitate to give it a try. (Posted on 9/23/2015)

This dress is even more gorgeous in person. I ordered a size small and it fits true to size. It hugs your curves in all the right places for the perfect hour glass figure. The fabric is nice and soft. This dress is perfect for any occasion and I cannot wait to really wear it out. A total must have staple for your closet! (Posted on 9/17/2015)

This is one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever owned. Top quality fabric, built perfectly, this is definitely a high quality item. I am a 32D bust - 28 waist - 38 hips and I ordered the size small and it fits like a glove. I am a seamstress in my free time, I love to look at the way clothing are put together and I was simply speechless with the way this dress is built. (Posted on 9/17/2015)

After several months of drooling over the navy blue Monica, and it not coming back in my size for yonks, I bit the bullet and bought the black one. My bank account took a hit (that's the only downside), but with a discount offer site wide, I am one happy bunny! Considering I purchased on 4th September, the longest wait was for it to be shipped, which it did on 9th, it made it all the way to the UK and to my front door by 11th, massive thumbs up there PUG and FedEx, brilliant service!
I'd read who knows how many reviews and took everyone's advice to wiggle into the dress without undoing the zipper, and although it's a work out getting it on, especially over your head (big mistake!), once you get into it, the work to get into it is 110% worth it! My only slight niggle is it seems a bit tight around my shoulders and tops of my arms but I suppose that's what I get with wide shoulders. It fit amazingly everywhere else! I'm 5'4" 38-32-40 so went with a Large, it does everything everyone has said before, the internal shaper smoothes everything down and the ruching hides any little bits you're not so confident about; the dress is slightly long on me, a few inches below my knee, so it's a dress to be worn with heels but ah well, time to get the heels out, what a shame...
I cannot thank PUG enough for this dress, usually I'd never wear anything like this unless I had some serious shape wear underneath as I'm really not confident and self conscious about my body, but this dress completely changes that, it's a definite confidence booster and I can't wait to wear it, especially to see my boyfriend's face! Thank you again, I'll be keeping a close eye for future purchases! (Posted on 9/15/2015)
