Low cut
I really wanted to love this dress - so much so that I ordered it twice in different sizes! But the sizing is different than most Rachel pally As it runs smaller. Also this is very low cut so if you have any chest (36d) it will not look flattering. Also like most Rachel pally it runs very, very long.

Absolutely love this dress!
I bought the dress in cream and I really love it! Very comfortable and super flattering. Got a lot of compliments on this one. I chose to buy it in a size small instead of medium as some of the costumers said that it runs large. The sizing was perfect but I had to cut off some of the length as it's very long, even though I wear my highest heels.

This dress in cream is absolutely stunning, and so versatile. Lovely heavy material, fits beautifully around the bust (although you probably couldn't be much bigger through the bust than a small D cup without needing a bit of additional support, or at least double-sided tape). Two points to consider though. Firstly, the sizing is quite large. I bought the S as I would normally wear 4 - 6, and it's definitely much closer to a 6. Secondly, as has been mentioned in a few reviews already, the dress is incredibly long. I'm 5'7, and even with 5" platformed wedges, the dress is still at least 2 inches too long. A quick trip to the tailors, stack on the bangles and voila! The ultimate Summer staple from beach to bar.

Amazing!
I am so glad I decided to get this dress. The material is incredibly soft, but thick enough to sit nicely when it's on. I'm 5"11' and usually get a Medium for maxis just because of my height. I got the Small and I am so glad I did! I'll be wearing heels with it, and even though they are about 10cm..I still may hem it slightly. My advice to those pondering this purchase would be to definitely get it..I highly doubt you will be disappointed!

Stunning
This dress is stunning but definitely get a smaller size. It is quite long, so may need a bit of altering, but it looks amazing and is definitely worth a buy. It's a perfect dress to wear from day to night.

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.

Perfect Dress!
absolutely the most perfect summer dress (and about to order the red one). Brilliantly cut - can wear a bra if necessary. I am a xs and ordered an xxs. Flows perfectly.

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.

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!
