This skirt is very cute for beachwear, lounging, and going out to dinner. Very comfy, and cute color that pops well against a black tank top. I am 5'7" and it is above my knee. It is a little bit short but not too short, which is exactly what I wanted for summertime wear. I purchased a medium, although I am a true 4 and usually a small in clothing, because American Apparel does run about a size smaller than the norm. Great buy and value! Very happy with my purchase.
