This Modcloth style is intended for someone a few inches taller than me (5’2) and I inferred this from the placement of the waistline on me. A flattering drop waistline usually falls at low-waist or upper-hip but this style chopped me off at low-hip and overextended the appearance of my torso. I haven’t figured out a solution for correcting this visual truncation yet and might do a WIFW post for this dress.
