Laura Byrnes California Monica Dress in Dark Green

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 dark green 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.

This dress is one of the most gorgeous pieces I own. The color is absolutely magnificent and the fit, my god I feel like Jessica Rabbit when I wear it.

I can't even count the compliments I've received wearing this dress. It is absolutely stunning and makes me feel fabulous.

It's definitely a snug fit but once it's on, voila, you look amazing. I ordered an XL and my measurements are 41-34-42 and it's perfect.

I cannot wait to wear this dress whenever possible! (Posted on 7/25/2016)

I'll start with agreeing with reviews on other posts that you need to be mindful of this dress in terms of how you put it on, and how you treat the zipper. It's not cheaply made AT ALL - the dress is put together beautifully, you just can't manhandle a bridal-type zipper. Also, as someone on the slightly shorter side (5"3), I think that hemming it an inch or two will improve how it looks on me, but it looked fine as-is, especially once you put on heels! It gives a fantastic shape and while I there may be some varying feedback in terms of how the top fits various chests, I can only say that as a 32E UK size, to be able to wear ANYTHING without a bra is a flippin' miracle! Huzzah!

(Also, I love this shade of green. It is my favourite colour and I hope PUG will continue to introduce styles in this shade.)

Reading reviews helped me decide sizing, so adding details if it helps anyone - I ordered a Medium, because I carry more weight in my hips and so often, tops are too large. While it looked tiny when I took it out of the packaging (*gulp*), it actually fits great, in my opinion, though I wouldn't want to go smaller (I also wouldn't want to go larger, so there's that.). I measure 37-29.5-39, am a bit short-waisted, if that helps anyone. In terms of putting it on, what worked best for me the first time was actually unzipping it and carefully working into it, then re-zipping - but your mileage may vary, as they say, it may be easier for you depending on fit to shimmy straight into it.

In any case, I was delighted with this and I am totally planning to get at least the navy and red in future. (Posted on 4/7/2016)
