This dress was very comfortable but was way more casual than it appears in the picture. I didn't care for how the waist was a little more snug to allow for a blouson look on top. When I did this, the waist was too high for my liking. I guess you could size up to avoid that but I felt the neckline and arm holes were already on the large side. In my opinion not worth the cost.

This is a gorgeous dress, the pictures do not do it justice. The fabric is so soft and of a very nice weight and quality. I was worried about what bra could be worn with it but it does not need one. It is very well lined through the bust area. It is a little bit sexy but in a classy way. I am wearing it for a formal (not church) wedding. I cannot wait!

For the price this was a really disappointing skirt. I thought it would be more of a fall/winter skirt based on the colors and design, but the fabric is quite thin. It's more of what I would expect from a cheaper skirt and if it had been around that price point it would have made sense to keep...but for close to this cost it really wasn't flattering enough to make it work.

I purchased this dress in black and it fits perfectly! Great length, I'm 59.5' and size 12, and perfect amount of sexy. I can't say it's worth the price but I'll keep it because I believe that it's a timeless piece that will stand the test of time.

Love this dress! Great material! Comfortable. Little long but cut it without needing to hem it because of the type of fabric. I paired it with a bridal belt and wore it for my rehearsal dinner dress. Received tons of complements!

I love the dress. Since I am 5'2", most maxi dresses have to hemmed and it leaves plenty of material for that. Also, lovely material. I love Rachel Polly dresses, and own 3 of them so far!

I don't understand why people give a lower rating just because the length doesn't fit them. We are all different heights! I'm 5'7" with long legs. I can never buy pants in a store, they are always too short -- and although stores often carry petites, they don't have a "tall" department. Talls are usually too long for me, so even though I have to buy online and I still have to pay to hem to the proper length. The dress should be rated on its merits, not how long it is since women's heights can vary by almost a foot!

This dress fits really nice on top but is so long! Even with platform high heels I would have to cut off 6 inches and I am 5 7! I am too lazy to get the dress shortened.

I bought this dress in black and LOVE it! It has a very flattering fit and the fabric feels amazing! I love that I can dress it up with heels or wear it for a casual event. It's very versatile and one of my new favorite dresses. Thanks, Zappos! The next day shipping was icing on the cake!

I had high hopes for this as a stylish dress that was convenient to wear while with my nursing daughter. It just did not work out. Too much fabric, weird wing-like sleeves that are actually split, not sewn together. Not flattering.

Perfect Maternity Wedding Dress! Added a jeweled belt, and very flattering even in the seventh month. Material is soft and comfortable. Hem is unfinished and very long - perfect for wedding - but in other colors for casual daytime wear would definitely need to be hemmed. Also - the fabric though heavy does show a bit of vpl... overall though - this is an awesome and very flattering dress!

Cute dress, but the skirt part is totally see through. The fabric is nice, but it's not worth the price. I'm returning it.

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.

This dress is so incredibly comfortable. I'm all about fabrics that are soft and this fabric goes above and beyond in that department. My only complaint is that there is a superfluous amount of fabric around the bottom part of the dress. It is just too much and makes the dress heavy. I don't think ordering a smaller size would have helped either. I hoped it would be more light and flowy but the amount of fabric used to create the skirt stifles that.

This is a really great, well made dress. I am a huge fan of Rachel Pally dresses and was not disappointed. My only disappointment was with the length. The reviews on other sites mention how it is extra long and needed to be hemmed. I am 5'9" and will only be able to wear flats with it. I am wearing it for my wedding day! The empire waist is a little awkward, but I am hoping to add a wide sash to lower the waist a bit. I absolutely love the modified razorback cut.

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.
