RP by Rachel Pally Sleeveless Gathered Waist Dress
best dress ever
Ordered this in red, love it so much i ordered the black. So much you can do with a solid dress like this to change the look. It is ultra comfortable, ultra feminine with a flirtiness about it.
Great for Work and Play
I think this is a very cute dress. I got it in small, I am 5'10 and it came to my knees, I am busty, about 34DD and broad shoulders. The top of the dress fit perfectly no to much material at all. I didn't have any of the issues others had, the arm hole was fine and I think the hem was supposed to be uneven for the flirt flare look. I can wear it with flip flops or a blazer and heels to work. I got the red and it is just the right color. I am very happy with this purchase. I have other Rachel Pally dresses from other stores - this is QVC quality, great buy for the price.
Usually I love Rachel Pally. This was not the case, so many reasons. The hem was uneven and the armholes were very large. The material was not of her usual quality. The neckline didn't have enough surplice to hang property. Everything went wrong. Sorry, this was not a hit, but a miss.
I read the sizing info and purchased a XS and a S, not sure which would look best.
They both fit and looked nice. The S seem to hang the nicest. I was concerned based on other reviews about large gaping arm holes and oversized draping front. Neither was a problem at all. The armholes are cut perfectly and it drapes nicely in the front, not to low at all. This is a beautiful, very feminine dress. It's becoming, is comfortable and a flexible dress you can dress up or down by your jewelry and shoe choice. Highly recommended!
Beautiful Fress -- Casual or Dressy
I purchased this dress in both the Red and Black size small. I am a size 6-8. I like the waist cinch pulled tight, creating a gather at the waistline and a blousing of the top. It can be dressed up with wedge heels or casual with flip flops and a ponytail. The fit is true to size which is relaxed. Fabric is like the softest T-shirt you have ever felt.
I love all Rachel Pally and the line on QVC is very comparable to her high end line sold at Nordstrom and online. Comfy, California chic. Love, Love, Love!
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.
