I purchased this dress for my daughter to go to the home coming dance. She is sixteen and was very excited about this pretty purple dress. However, even she thought the dress was WAY too short! She is very petite and has very short legs, this did not make any difference when trying this dress on. If it is as short as it shows here on my daughter who is 5'2", I could not imagine someone taller wearing it! But if you are into showing your stuff off, this is a very pretty dress.
