I wanted to love this - it looks so pretty on the website! However, I was unable to situate the elastic waistband in a spot that made the dress look flattering, without turning it into a micro-mini. The top 1/2 of the dress is quite voluminous, and there is a lot of extra material there - so much so that I probably could have sized down (but I also have narrow hips). The skirt 1/2 drapes nicely but again, if you place the elastic on your natural waist or slightly below (which is where it is most flattering for the shape of the dress) there is way too much leg showing. And I'm only 5'3". Print is really pretty but unfortunately this will have to go back.
