RP by Rachel Pally Sleeveless Gathered Waist Dress
Just don't look the same on me
I waited and waited for this dress. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. The material looked so flowy and beautiful. When I first put it on I was so excited. Once it was on, "not so much". The weight of the bottom is so heavy. If you tighten the waist the top takes on a different look and doesn't look right. When I looked in the full length mirror I didn't see the dress i wanted. It looked absolutely terrible on me. I had to send it back.
Adorable, very flattering fit & a great value....
The color (RED) , the fabric, the simple style, the fit , the versatility, and the price of this
little summer dress is great ! Definitely recommend ....I bought the S (148 lbs) and could go for the XS, as a point of reference....very cute dress.
This style of this dress should be flattering on almost every body type, but please beware that it does run very large. To get a more appropriate fit, you should order at least one size down. You also should wear a camisole underneath, as the arm holes are quite generous and the cowl neck can slip down a bit here and there. I like the fabric very much and definitely feel like it's a great addition to my wardrobe. I have it in red and it is classic yet bright to fit this year's vibrant colors.
The dress is just okay. I'm rather particular. I just wasn't impressed with the fabric, and the hem hangs very unevenly. I plan to return it.
A bit dated
Fabric is wonderful, but dress a bit dated for me...just not my tpe...neck line not flattering...very basic...I tried the Red, I think Black for business would be good..just not a casual. light dress...cannot be dressed down... for formal or work it would be good
The dress was terribly wrinkled when I opened the package, which didn't help make a positive impression when I tried it on. Also didn't bode well were I to pack it for a trip. The uneven hem, even if intentional, simply looked like poor quality construction. I bought the red, and it just looked like I was wearing a baggy, wrinkled red sack. I'm a big fan of QVC fashion, but this item just didn't make the grade. I returned it immediately.
The fabric is wonderful and the skirt lays/flows beautifully BUT the top is not good at all. The cut on the arms is not flattering and the drape is awkward. I love the skirt so much I debated cutting the top off but in the end had to return it. Disappointing but would definitely consider other items from this line.
Great LBD style with fun elements of a flowy skirt and drawstring waist. I am a HUGE fan of the Rachel Pally's regular line so when she did a lower priced line for QVC I was ALL over it! Fabric is a beautiful jersey and dress hits to just about knee length (I'm 5'5"). I do have to agree with the other reviewers about the armholes - they do come down a little lower than usual, so if you dont wear a cardigan your bra may show slightly. Definitely not a dealbreaker for me though. Can't wait to see more great RP for QVC items!
Obviously I purchased the black and it is really perfect and easy to wear for work with a jacket or cardigan and nearly any occasion. I'm considering the red in this too. I'm 5'8', plus size, and I don't like to wear really short dresses. The hem is purposely uneven, the length is perfect. It hits right around the knee.
Beautiful and versatile dress !
I ordered the red dress and plan to wear it for the office with a navy or black jacket , with flip flops on vacation and with heels and hoop earrings for dress-up. I thought it ran true-to size, but I gave it four stars because on the hangar the armholes are stretched way down by the weight of the fabric. I have folded it at the waist and clipped with a skirt hangar to prevent it from stretching out the top and armhole area.
I usually don't order knee length dresses, because they're usually too short for my 5'10" frame, but this one fits perfect!! I ordered my normal size (XL), and it fits great, but I probably could have gone down a size, but I like the loose fit with a belt. The dress comes right below my knee. It's so femine and comfortable. I would love more colors.
I bought this in red and it looks great. i get lots of compliments when i wear it. It looks very girly and feminine which i liked :) I hope to see more colors for the summer and more in shorter length as well.
