Hi everyone, I really want the Monica dress but my measurements span three sizes. My bust is the low end of medium, my waist the high end of large and my hips are in the middle of XL. I don't want it to be too loose on top or too tight at the bottom. What do I do?

I'd say "cut in half" and chose a Large but I'd be concerned about the bust & hips too... That's a problem with pear shaped figures & wiggle dress style :/ Sorry it doesn't really help but I really hope It'll fit you nicely ^_^

I would go with the large.The waist is the most important part. You can wear a padded bra to fill out the top part and the hip portion does have some stretch.

I don't have the Monica but my experience with crossing three sizes is order for the largest part and then have everything else taken  in. I have to do this all the time :/ 

Sorry I wasn't too helpful

I know that it's stretch bengaline so you might be able to get away with ordering the smaller size and having it stretch out, maybe go with the Large, if it's too big on the bust you can always take it in under the armpits to tighten it up a bit. If you look at the measurements, model Doris Mayday actually has hips in the low L range as well, but I think she's in a Medium. hope that helps!
