So I rarely write reviews, but after trying on this dress I felt like I must. The dress looks gorgeous and it fits great. I'm 5'8" and about 155lbs and the medium was perfect. The front is very revealing, but you can tighten the laces to prevent too much from showing. Here is the downside. The dress is abnormally heavy. As I began taking it out of the packaging, I thought they accidentally packed two dresses inside. The dress weighs 3lbs! I actually weighed myself with the dress on and off to be sure! I can't see how the tiny string going around the neck can actually hold up over time. It is also very long and the weight of the dress made it puddle down to the floor. If I were to cut the hem, I would have to take off at least 6 inches. Even with 4 inch heels, this dress still drags on the floor. There is so much fabric, you can hold the sides straight out, wrap it around the back, and tie it at the waist and the dress doesn't look much different. I don't know why they would use so much fabric. As beautiful as this dress is, I think I'm returning it because I simply can't see myself wearing this. It's just too impractical. It is definitely a quality dress, but there was clearly a design flaw. I guess that's why it's heavily discounted right now.

I am 8.5 months pregnant and had ordered this for my baby shower. It was sooo pretty in person but unfortunately, I ordered a medium and it was a little too big (which was shocking). I think it runs on the larger side...it was SUPER long too and I'm 5' 7" and with a baby bump and 3 inch heels it was still dragging majorly on the ground. I can see why the other reviewer said it made her look pregnant. When I tried it on it looked like it was meant to be a maternity dress; which obviously was great for me! If you are ordering this and are not pregnant, definitely size down! Normally, I am a size XS or S in a Maxi dress so I got the medium to account for baby bump but it was still too large. But it was incredibly comfortable and so pretty! I give it 5 stars still...such a cute find. Just runs big.

I purchased the black in XS. I am 5'4,usally wear 2-4, 36B and it fits great! The material is perfect, not to thin but light enough for warmer weather. I gave it a 4 because I had to get it hemmed, but then again, now its exactly what I hoped for!

Oof, I bought this dress thinking I would wear it to my rehearsal dinner but oh man was it bad. First the material is very thin, so even though it is flowy and loose, you can see every dimple, lump and bump. Also, I'm a busty 12/14, and this dress made me look like I was about six months pregnant because of the way the front drapes. It is going back.

The dress has a beautiful pattern, nice cut, soft feel but it is not very forgiving in terms of lumps and bumps. Put on a shape wear slip and you''ll be good to go! I am 5'3" and the length needed to be altered by 3 inches with 4 inch heels. So, unless you are tall, you will need to get the dress altered or hold it up while walking.

Beautiful style, but WAY too long. The fabric has a beautiful light feel, but is too sheer for my taste and for the price. Also the seams on the slits were coming apart so not the most amazing quality unfortunately. I'll be returning this one.

Wow, this skirt was super long. I would have had to take a foot off the length or wear it as a muumuu and I wear a size 4. Loved the cut and the pattern, it's just not a skirt unless you are over 6 feet tall.

Love, love, love this dress! As a tall girl (6'0) I am so thankful to Rachel Pally for making a long maxi dress that actually sweeps the floor on us tall girls. The bottom hem is a raw edge so it is easy to shorten at home if needed - just cut it carefully! Her dresses tend to run a bit large so I went with the M and it fits great. Perfect summer staple!

This dress was a huge disappointment. I am 5'4 and there was about 6 inches pooling on the floor. The hem was unfinished. I can't imagine paying this much for a dress that doesn't even have a sewed hem! There is tons of fabric and it completely overwhelmed me. I am generally about a 2 and the xs was HUGE. The fabric is a nice weight but other than that, this was a completely disappointing purchase and I question buying Rachel Pally ever again.
