Beautiful
This dress is already a favourite. The cut is very flattering and sexy! I can't wait to wear it and show it off. it is an interesting cut for the chest so either be prepared to go bra-less or you may have to work to find a bra that is cut properly for the dress. I would recommend going a size smaller than normal as the bottom fabric is heavy and can drag the top down. Beautiful creamy beige colour. Love this dress!

Best Dress Ever Super Long!!
I'm a 6'2 girlie girlie who always dreamed of a maxi dress that would touch the ground, I have found it in this Rachel Pally dress. The material is super soft and long enough not only to touch the ground, but also leave a train behind me as I walk. One word: Magical. By bust is a 32DD, but the girls managed to stay put with the help of a thin bra and two pieces of double-sided sticky tape for extra protection. I can not say enough about this dress! I received so many compliments and even managed to outdo some models at an event in Atlanta, without even trying during Fashion's Night Out. I purchased the dress in both the cream (the best color) and the black. Amazingly, the cream was extremely flattering on my brown complexion.

Very versatile
I was quite worried about how this dress would fit as I am a 28H but I'm having a bespoke bra made (for three hundred and fifty British pounds -not cheap) and it is going to be wonderful for my wedding. I know it's not a vera wang gown but I wanted something I could wear again. I really love this dress and I'll probably order it in black as well. It looks good on me because I have a thin rib cage and big boobs and being long it hides my legs. Also because it's so long I may have it hemmed aysemetricaly to give me a short train. Going to have to alter the straps as well to take them up slightly as that is the most flattering for my boobs. I'm going to wear the dress with the temperly london lace shrug avaliable from shopbop -though not cheap at twelve hundred dollars the entire outfit looks LUSH and I'm very happy with it! I also got a silk flower from shopbop to ear in my hair. It's really beautiful too. I have vera wang shoes I bought from shopbop I'll be wearing.

Imaginative and versatile
This is a wonderful and different design. I read all reviews about the measurements and also asked a Shopbop representative, where she recommended purchasing a smaller size. They were right: the dress stretches as well. I am 5.6 in height, 115-120 pounds, and a 34B. I ordered XS in black. I agree with the reviews on altering the length, as it is too long. I will probably do something with the straps because, for my taste, it is a bit too plunging in the bust area. The material does NOT look cheap and it fits beautifully around the body. Another element that I like is that the dress can be worn more casually or, with the right accesories and makeup, more elegantly. I love it! Also, the representatives at Shopbop were very considerate and helpful.

Beautiful but not right for me
I wanted to love this dress. Read all the reviews and considered carefully before buying. It fits quite large. I sized down one size and it was still a bit roomy. The jersey fabric is soft and hangs nicely. I'm small chested so cutouts weren't a problem when standing still, but if you have a larger bust, you might find the coverage lacking.It's VERY long, but an unfinished hem, so not a problem to take up. Overall I felt too exposed and worried that in the course of every day movement my chest would pop out from the dress. Returned.

Rachel Pally Long Cutout Dress
Beautiful - I wore this to a very formal ball and received so many compliments! As a small UK 6, I ordered the xxs and it was perfect. I love it so much that I now have it in red and black too.

Absolutely stunning!!
I bought this dress because it looks beautiful and the reviews were really good. I am really glad I purchased it because as everyone else said, it is just gorgeous and stunning. The back is lovely and the dress is completely comfortable...you will want to wear it all the time! I bought the cream color because I have dark complected skin and it makes me look even darker ;) It is pretty long and I had to get it altered, but I'm 5'3 and am used to altering just about everything. It is a bit low cut, but not in a bad way. I wear a size 0-2 so I ordered the XS and it fits like a glove. I seriously love everything about this dress!

LOVE this dress
As the other reviewers mentioned, the dress is super long. Since the hem is unfinished tho, it's very easy to cut yourself. Super flattering and revealing without being sl*tty. Have gotten complements whenever I wear it, in particular from men.

Factor in an alteration for this dress
First off, expect to have the dress altered. I just make 5'2 (and 110lb) and bought it in an XS so the straps and length of the dress were ridiculously long but once that was fixed the dress was fine. Another thing is that the picture is not a true representation of the colour of the dress, it's more of a light cream and not a pinkish colour, but again was fine on me. I really like the jersy material and though the cutouts were rather discreet and not over the top. I would still recommend this dress but be aware that you WILL need to alter it, which when you add that ontop of the price does get rather steep for what is effectively just a cotton dress.

Fun party dress
I bought this dress in black for a beach holiday and it was just the right thing for evening in a hot climate. Yes, it was super long but it was easily shortened and its simple jersey-like material made it easy to pack, hang and wash. I sized down as other reviewers have recommended - I am usually an Aussie 6/XS so I ordered the XXS and it fit perfectly. I am small in the boob dept so I didn't have the cleavage issues some reviewers have noted. That said, I still found I needed to wear a bra or popped on nipple guards. Bra wise, I wore an off the shelf lacy cup with a thin band and a very small fabric strip running between the cups that I happened to have at home. The upper part of the cup peeked out, showing some of the lace. The lace contrast against the jersey actually looked amazing and made the dress look more classy than if I'd had the bra concealed. Would I buy it again? Yes, probably, even though I think the price is a little high for what is essentially a long jersey sheath.

Simple Elegance!
I almost bought this dress last season and decided to give it a try after reading the reviews. So happy I did. I am over 6feet tall so its difficult to find maxi dresses long enough to sweep the floor, this did wonderfully. Its simple and elegant which I like. I ordered the x-small which fits perfectly. If you are over a B-cup I doubt this dress is for you. I am an A cup and may have to use some tape to ensure my nipple does not get exposed. Beautiful dress, cannot wait to go on vacation!
