I purchased this in blue multi and am pairing it with a sweater to cover my arms and hide a little of the extra post-baby weight I'm still carrying around the hips. It is very flattering and is even nursing-friendly. The length is just right for me...I am 5'5" and it comes about 4 in above my ankles. The middle seam is not the most flattering in the solid colors, but necessary for the twist-front. I think the multi pattern hides this seam better. The fabric is a very comfy stretch knit. I am very happy to have found this dress and will wear it to a couple of gatherings.
