I really liked this dress, I wouldn't have bought it off the rack because generally horizantal stripes and I don't get along. But the girl working there encouraged me to try it on. It was actually very flattering and it came just to the right height at the underarms (i don't like it when it is too snug, or especially when it is too low!) But this fit really well I actually really like the spandex in it because it fits and follows your curves nicely. But not in a tight way. I got it in petite length because i am shorter (5;3") and it was a perfect length, no hem required - and that never happens for me with maxi dresses. I would definitely buy this again, in fact I asked the girl if they were getting it in other colors but she wasn't sure.
