RP by Rachel Pally Rolling Waves One Shoulder Maxi Dress
Great Dress.....if you're 6 feet tall!
Love this dress-I really love one-shoulder dresses- sexy but not too revealing. Gave this dress 4 stars vs.5 due to LONG length. I'm usually the one complaining of hems not being long enough for us taller girls, but I'm 5'81/2 " and this dress is dragging on the floor. Need to hem it almost 6 inches to hang right and that's wearing heels ! Still considering whether I'm going to invest in altering or send back. Paid almost $100 for the dress- don't know why it's so long????? Still thinking on this one.......hmmmm
Great Maxi Dress for Tall Gals
Finally a true Maxi Dress for tall women. I'm 5'9 and this dress hits the floor on me. I love it; I tried it on and my young daughters (17 & 24 years old) loved it also. The material is a great weight, it fits true to size and I do agree about the shoulder strap in some of the other reviews, but over all it's a beautiful dress. I plan to wear it to my sister's surprise 64th birthday celebration. Thank you Rachel for a great maxi dress.
Finally A Desighner Making True Length
Thank you so much for finally making a dress that actually is long enough for those of us who are 6'2 as there's never pants or dresses truly long enough
and always catering to the 5'8 and barbie size gals
I used to model but at 53 am much larger size but still very tall and close to impossible to find a designer that will make clothes long enough .tall ladies also like to have long enough dresses and pants and yes even wear shoes with a heel so thank you and if you ever need a red head 6'2 woman call me.thank you for getting it right!
What s it with no great size 12 shoes and not long enough lengths for tall ladies .get with it you other designers ,you will be surprised how many size 12 nice sandals and shoes you would sell.
PERFECT MAXI FOR A TALL GIRL!
Just received this dress in the mail, literally 10 mins ago and I am head over heels in love!!! First of all, a little about me - I'm a size 20 up top and 24 on the bottom, standing 5'11" tall. This dress was the perfect length for a tall girl with a little extra length to spare. After reading the previous reviews I couldn't do anything but laugh...THE DRESS IS SUPPOSED TO BE EXTRA LONG! Anyone who actually follows Rachel Pally knows that ALL of her dresses are like this. They are made this way so that they are actually MAXI length for women of all heights. If you are short, You are supposed to hem it! If you are tall, enjoy the perfection! There is nothing wrong with the material or the weight. It is, obviously, not the same fabric used in her regular line but it still has a good hand and moves fluidly when you walk. If it was any lighter it would look/feel CHEAP. I feel like I got my money's worth and look forward to wearing it this summer.
This dress is so cute and its a "make and entrance" dress. But, it is so long that it drags on the ground, even when I'm in big heels. I am 5'4" and ordered an XS. I am going to have a friend hem it about 2-3" shorter but that should not have to be necessary. Will keep it and will love it after its shortened.
Thank you for bringing Rachel Pally to QVC!! I've been wearing her clothes for years and I'm so happy to see her on the Q. This dress is great, the fabric is beautiful and drapes perfectly. I'm taller (5'10"), so I'm glad to finally be able to find a maxi dress on QVC that is truly a maxi. Absolutely love it!!
I bought this dress for a trip we are taking in May. I loved the dress on air so I was disapponted when I received it. I am 5'9, probably 130lb and the dress was WAY TOO LONG!! I think even with heels this would still be too long. It fit well everywhere else but I did not want to spend the money on alterations so it was sent back. I'll keep looking for the maxi dress I want.
Gorgeous Dress..Too Much Material!!
I agree with most of the reviews of this dress..I was so excited to get it home only to see that it's way too long and something is definitely off with the bare shoulder & off the shoulder. The fit came across the entire side of my bra cup. I ordered an XL, I am 5'8, 210 lbs so go figure. I love the dress especially with the spandex. Unfortunately, I have to return. I am on the fence if I want to re-order a size M & L but for the price, I'm not sure its worth the shipping charges back & forth, the hemming that I will have to pay out of pocket, etc. Ladies beware, order size down if not a couple sizes down.
Rachel, please make improvements on this dress. And if it goes on clearance at a resonable price, I may re-order.
I Wanted to Love It!
I so wanted to love this dress, but it was a miss for me. The dress had too much fabric and was too big. I am 5'6" and this dress literally "drug the floor". It has a generous fit so stick to your normal size. Because of the fabric, it was too heavy. I think this dress would look better for those ladies who are on the tall size.
Regrettably sent back
I really wish this had worked. I usually get a small in rayon because it is kind of clingy, but based in the chest measurements I got a Medium. It was too big, but that was not the biggest problem for me. I am a 34DD and must always were a bra. I would have send this one for a exchange and get size S, but I could not make it work. I tried different ways to see if I could hide the bra strap but could not. It is too bad because I love the colors (coral/sand) and the print. Also, even though it is rayon, the fabric is heavy enough that it isn’t clingy. I am really sorry I had to send this one back. I even though of coming up with a way to add a strap to the shoulder-less side. I would recommend this to anyone who can afford not to wear a bra and is not on the short side. It may be overwhelming if you are short (5’6’’ or under).
ALMOST PERFECT...ALMOST IN LOVE?
Love the fit but it is way too long. I'm 5'6" and ordered the X-Small. Drags even with 4 inch heels on! Love the feel of the fabric, but I'm not in love with the color. Looks a little drab. Shorten it and give it to us in some nice solid colors like black, army green, coral, or a simple print again but with black & WHITE, coral and WHITE, blue and WHITE to brighten it up a bit...not black and BEIGE, coral and BEIGE...very blah. It is very soft and comfortable and I love the feel of the fabric very, very much...flows beautifully! The fit was so fabulous I really hate sending it back...but I must. Please bring this back with these adjustments and I will try again! Almost in love with this one!
Poor fit and fabric too heavy
I ordered up one size to L in this dress and it was too big. Armhole is too deep and the one shoulder side as it crosses the upper body crosses too low. The fabric is clingy, heavy (I would melt in this dress). It's one of those super slinky milky, whisper knit type fabrics. Also I am 5'11" and the dress puddled on me in bare feet. Going back today.
