Can you tell me the length from either the back base of the neck to the hem or the waist to the hem? When I measure 31"from what I think is "top center back," the hem would barely cover my derriere - much shorter than what is pictured. Thank you.

Very nice for the $$ I haven't worn it yet but it looks like some I've spent 100 or more forRead More
I love this dress. The fabric is fairly light, but it doesn't cling and show bulges. It also hangs well on your body--the hem is even all around. Also, the scoop neck is not too low. It is also very versatile. It's good for day and going shopping or to work, and it can be dressed up for evening with some nice jewelry and high heels. I also like the length of the sleeves. When they are long, I tend to keep pushing them up and they don't always stay.. These are an effortless length.Read More
This photo looked great, but I ended up returning this one. It was too short for me (the length would be fine on someone younger). I loved the color, but the fabric was awfully thin.Read More
I love this dress, it is very slimming which I love. Fabric is great and I am looking forward very much to wearing it when the weather cools.Read More
It is a pretty dress and looks very flattering. As another reviewer noted the mateial is a little flimsy which means everything shows under this dress even my textured tights could be seen when I was sitting. So wearing a slip would be a good idea.Read More
I love this dress. It is so pretty and very comfortable. I only wish it came in other colors also so I could have purchased more.Read More
This dress is beautiful. A little form fitting at the top but nice flare - very flattering. The material is a little thin so be prepared to wear some type of slip or undergarment.Read More
Alright, like everyone else. I am weary of online shopping, especially if it deals with clothes. But when my dress arrived, it not only show off my curves, but made me look thin again! It's GORGEOUS! I seriously have no other words to describe the feeling! It's perfect. That's it. If you are still debating, look no further! Buy it! It's worth it! Trust me! :)Read More

Shopping for petite clothing will help you find the right sizes with all the fashionable options as other departments. The best dresses for petites are easy to find with a few simple guidelines. V-necks draw the eye up toward the face. V-necks are flattering for all types of women, since they show off the neck and encourage the appearance of a long, lean body. Petite dresses that have a V-neck also create a vertical line and give the impression that you are taller. Look for petite clothing that allows you to play with accessories and show them off. For an evening look, pair the V-neck with layers of necklaces to look glamorous. Find knee-length dresses to flatter your legs. As a petite woman, flowing long dresses may cause you to look smaller. When more leg is showing, you will appear taller. A flattering petite dress is hemmed at the knee or just above the knee. Pair a petite dress with heels and your legs will appear long and lean. Don't go much shorter than slightly above the knee, since it may be inappropriate for work or more elegant parties. Select petite apparel that hits at the right length and is flattering to your curves. Vertical designs will elongate your body. Look taller by finding dresses that have a vertical design. Dresses that have vertical stripes create the illusion that there is more length. On the other hand, dresses that have too many patterns or colors may cause petite women to appear smaller. A simple dress is flattering, whether it's one solid color or contains a subtle pattern. Petite women can use a wide belt at the waist in the same color as the dress. Using a belt in a different color may cause you to look shorter, in addition to cutting your appearance in half at the waist.
