Laura Byrnes California Monica Dress in Lavender Lurex

Availability: In stock

$186.00
One of the most glamourous dresses we've ever made, the Monica in Lurex Jersey is an absolute wonder. 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 beautiful crossover bustline features soft, clear elastic to hold it to your skin and allows the sleeves to sit slightly off-shoulder. 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 is by far my favorite Monica. I have red hair and pale skin and this dress just glows on me. I've gotten so many compliments when wearing it. I would wear it every day if I could.

I am a 34DD/DDD, 28/29 waist and 38/40 hips. I bought the size Medium and it fits me perfectly. Just note the lurex fits a little looser then a reular Monica dress so you might need to size down. (Posted on 8/7/2015)

Having never purchased from PUG before, i was extremely nervous about tje sizing. Go by the chart, its accirate. I am 5'10", a size 12/14, but i wear a 38H bra which makes dress shoppping a nightmare because the chest is always too small. Never in my wildest dreams would i ever have imagined wearing a dress that didnt require a bra, but i dod! I literally didnt want to take it off when i went out for my birthday, i got so many compliments! I purchased the XL and it fot like a dream. A great investment piece. Very high quality, will be ordering in black when it comes back in stock...thanks PUG! (Posted on 11/12/2014)

I'm always weary of ordering items online for stage. The description is sometimes a huge stretch from the reality of what you actually receive. When I opened the package and pulled out the Monica Dress, I let out a huge sigh of relief. The quality and the fit were amazing and we'll worth the price. I can't believe I haven't stumbled on this site earlier. Thank you! (Posted on 11/10/2014)

After owning the Monica in white, I knew I had to own it in this Lavendar and I'm oh so I happy I do. Again amazing quality with the gorgeous durable liner and beautiful fabric to make your body look like a perfect hourglass! What stood out to me the most is this color in person is just gorgeous. Purple is already my favorite color and this made me the happiest pinup in the world . I invent reasons for me to wear this dress , and I feel like a glamorous movie star everytime I put it on. Every women needs this dress! (Posted on 9/17/2014)

I originally purchased this dress in a small (my measurements are 34-26-39) and it fit perfectly apart from my bust. Due to the non-stretch lining in the bust, my boobs were completely flattened and none of my bras could make it look good. Unfortunately the mediums were all sold out so I took a risk and bought the large. I was surprised at how well it fit me! I will need to alter the sleeves as they are a bit baggy on me, but due to the amazing quality and stretch in the fabrics, the rest still fits me well. So if you have a large bust, don't be afraid to order up a size! (Posted on 9/17/2014)

I was not sure the Monica would work for me. I'm 5'2", 34-26-37, with a short torso. The length wasn't too bad, easy to move in. I thought the small would be too big in the bust area, but with a good push up it's fine. I also thought the bodice would be too long for my torso, but again, it was fine. It's a lovely dress, beautiful construction, smooths out lumps and bumps. The color in person is more silvery-platinum and just gorgeous overall. And the lurex? STAHP IT! (Posted on 9/16/2014)

THIS DRESS! This dress is so beautiful and elegant. You'll certainly feel like the sexiest belle of the ball while wearing it. I wore it to go dancing and it was much more accommodating than I had anticipated that it would be. I couldn't do any high kicks or things of that sort, but I was definitely able to get my groove on in it!

I thought that the lurex would make the dress itchy, but it's not at all. It's very comfortable. I read many reviews about putting the dress on without touching the zipper, so I made sure to heed their warning. It's a bit challenging, but once it's on...look out! You could likely get away without wearing a bra with this too, but I put on a push up bra to ensure that the girls were nice and in place. If my budget allowed it, I would own this dress in every color.

My only, only critique is that the bust area shows the wrinkle in the darting. I'm sure that no one notices this except for the person wearing it, but I thought I'd include that note so others won't think they have a faulty dress! (Posted on 9/16/2014)

The dress is beautiful, i have it red too in size Small, but a while back i bought the Black and Silver Lurex also in small and was a bit too snug, so when i bought it in Lavender i decided to size up to M, which fit ok but was too long and slightly loose and had bit of fabric bunching up at my calf. I want to try again in a size Small because i like the colour so much and would like to wear it again! (Posted on 4/25/2014)

This dress is really beautiful on! I felt like my boobs looked a little lumpy in it, but I think it was all in my head. I got the pictures from the event that I wore this dress and I looked perfect! The dress hit me mid calf, lower than the picture because I am a shorty, keep that in mind. That being said, I think it only added to the over all glamour of the dress. I would like to own it in all colors ! (Posted on 4/1/2014)
