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 jersey 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 while stopping traffic and breaking hearts. Prepare to be endlessly complimented.

DESIGNED BY: Laura Byrnes
ORIGIN: Made in the USA
FIT NOTES: Fits true to size, please check the size chart for each item. This dress is meant to fit snugly. It should feel tight while you wiggle into it (from the top only!)

Love love love

An absolute stunner of a dress. Snug fitting yet comfortable and roomy I think it’s something that suits a lot of shapes, enhances more and flatters just about everyone.

The moulding/lining around the bust isn’t perfect for me (large chested) as I’d absolutely need and want to wear a bra so I will need to do something about that. But it’s something to maybe keep in mind.

I went for size XL which is snug - but the right size I feel for me even if I did need some help removing it!

Weird Lining

I love the dress. Very old Hollywood glam. However the lining of the dress near the breast makes a very unflattering clump of fabric that can be seen through the outer layer. Plan on having this dress altered as I did.

Great Dress

It was very tight around my chest area but overall loved the look. I bought a medium, dress has no stretch.

Stunning dress!!!

What a stunningly beautiful silhouette this dress gives!!! I wore it for the first time with a longline under-bust corset and my antique French top hat. Since that look was highly accessorized, I can wear it next week and it will read as a different dress. Love it so much!!! One little caveat, it’s a little challenging to get into for the first time, but no’ll get used to it and the compliments from everyone will make the fiddliness of getting into it all worthwhile.
