One of the most glamorous dresses we've ever made, the Monica in Lurex Jersey is an absolute wonder. With a design inspired by the sexy gathered wiggle dresses of mid-century Hollywood, the beautiful crossover bustline features soft, clear elastic to hold the jersey to your skin and allows the sleeves to sit slightly off-shoulder - and may also be worn comfortably on-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 being surprisingly comfortable, while the gathered outer fabric disguises the internal structure and gives you a sleek and clean hourglass silhouette. The result is an incredibly sexy and attention grabbing wiggle dress with the structure to have you looking your best while stopping traffic and breaking hearts. Prepare to be endlessly complimented (we'll give you "I got it at PUG" cards to give out)!

DESIGNED BY: Laura Byrnes
ORIGIN: Made in USA
FIT NOTES: This specific colorway runs smaller than other Monica Dresses we've found customers typically order a size up from their normal Monica Dress size. This dress is meant to fit snugly. It should feel tight while you wiggle into it (from the top only!)
RESTOCK: The Monica is one of our best sellers, and we restock often. Please join the wait list if your size is out of stock, and we will notify you as soon as your item is available

Omg this dress is that little black dress that everyone has and loves. Hugs in all the right places and shows the curves you want to show and hides the ones you don’t. I’m definitely ordering this one in Black !

I was lucky enough to happen on the site the day the gold came back in stock and though my size was out of stock I bought an extra large, I should of gone medium or large at the very most. I've had to heavily alter this dress, but it common for me due to my measurements. I'm a 34GG or 41 bust, 25 waist and 41 hip. I've taken in the extra large waist so far 8 inches and let out the bust by taking out the inner bra, and taken in the hips 4 inches. The invisible zipper is very difficult to work and though you can put it on without unzipping it, it will mess up your hair and makeup and make you sweat a little to get into it :P
Once it's on though... Watch out world!
I'm saying only three on service because it sold out so quickly I never even got the email saying it was back in stock. It was a complete fluke that I was on the site.

BAAM...is the first word that comes to mind when wearing my Monica (same for my red one!). The color is stunning, like an olive/antique gold. I splurged on this beautiful creature for a Hollywood theme party, I was going for old Hollywood. Funny enough, the guests though I was dressed like Kim K, I corrected and said think more Bettie Page! I received so many compliments on this dress and it was comfortable for lots of dancing and eating. It does "smash" the ladies a bit, but I have plenty and wasn't concerned. I think just finding the right style of bra would make it perfect. Suggestions PUG team? I ordered my usual size Large and it's perfect, even with the 34G's. I also purchased a waist cincher, sadly PUG was out of stock so had to buy elsewhere. I had never worn one before and it just made the dress a bit more perfect. Thank you for the Monica xoxo

The Monica dress has the most amazing fit! The fabric and make does not disappoint. I bought a medium and it fits great although I do wish the arms were a little tighter. Definitely recommend this killer dress!

I absolutely adore this dress! Very well made! I was able to snag this dress at the yard sale and I'm so glad I did! Although the waist area is a little big but I can either wear a nice belt or have it taken in. I love it so much though! The material is ridiculously gorgeous, I feel so classy in it!

Oh Monica... Where have you been all my life?!

This dress is the dress of all dresses! I first purchased this gold Monica and the black Monica the same day because I simply couldn't decide, I know own it in purple, teal, turquoise and red!

This dress is super flattering and I've seen it on various body types and it looks wonderful on all. You'll definitely be the bombshell the evening you wear it out!

MUST OWN THIS DRESS!!!

Wow! This dress looks amazing in the site but when I tried it on I just didn´t undestand the weird thing on the bust área... I put it on many times to think about the purpose of it and I almost cut it off. Thankfully I found someone who fixed it and now it doesn't look that weird.
Reading other comments I disagree, I think you CAN wear a bra with this dress. And about sizing it will depend on your figure because I also bought an XL and It felt big everywhere on me, specially around the bust área. (42 34 42, 34H) (sorry This was the dress I wanted to review, so if you read my opinión in the monica dress in champagne please ignore it)

So well-designed! The internal shaper smooths out everything and pushes up what needs to be pushed up. The only issue is with the invisible zipper getting stuck but it's easy to avoid the hassle with that... just step into the dress when you put it on and push it down to get out of it. I own it in 3 colors (red, black, and gold jersey) and wish I had to funds to own every colorway.

I love this dress, it's perfect and the silhouette is great. However, I ordered based on size chart and although the 2x was still below my measurements I thought maybe I could squeeze into it. It turned out to be too big and I had to send it back. :( I am just waiting for it to be restocked so I can order a smaller size.
