Very pretty in orange... though it is a truer "carrot" orange than the way my monitor displays the image here. The fabric is a light poly/spandex that clings where it is supposed to cling and flows where it is supposed to flow. The cut and adjustability make this dress extremely versatile and a safe bet for just about any height. My girlfriend is 5'2"; it looks great on her. Undoubtedly her slightly taller daughters will also be clamoring to borrow it.
