RP by Rachel Pally Sleeveless Gathered Waist Dress
This dress is better than I expected truthfully. Perfect length for me (I am 5' 7") and fits well. Only complaint is the time it took for the packing wrinkles to come out of it when hanging!
Pretty Dress, Great Color, Very Comfortable
I'm glad I purchased this dress. It is very comfortable and the fabric drapes nicely. I love the shade of red - its warmer toned and flatters my coloring. I didn't have any issue with the armholes being too big. Looks great with a cropped denim jacket for a casual dinner or with a blazer at the office or all on its own.
The dress was a good value
However, it has a few problems... One armhole is much bigger than the other.... and so it fits a bit weird...however, since I will always wear a cardigan or short jacket over it..that is not an issue... I love love the fabric.... it is a great weight... as far as size other than the armholes it was just as stated...
Not for Petite's
I liked everything about this dress except that I'm 5'3 and waist was too long for my short waist. I ordered the red and it's a beautiful color, almost a raspberry red. Also the armholes were too big for me. I wish this came in a petite size. Fabric is a good weight, not flimsy. The length was fine for me as we'll.
So sad to return because this is a year round dress in California. You can add a blazer or sweater for work or church, or throw on some sandals for a casual look.
If you're taller than me, don't pass up on this dress, order in both colors!!
So Glad I Listened to Sizing Reviews
I have several items from this designer and this item didn't let me down. I have wanted this dress awhile but kept forgetting to order. So glad of price reduction and reviews that said to size down one size. I wish more designers would make comfortable dresses that cover a woman's knees.
I ordered both colors in this dress anticipating it to be a go-to item in my wardrobe. Turns out I was appalled at both. The dress has zero shape and makes my figure look like one long sack. No shape AT ALL to this dress, and in turn, to my body. The waist band is at a very awkwardly low spot. Definitely pass on this one!!
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.
