I am normally hesitant to buy this type of dress for two reasons: the armholes tend to be too big and show things I do not want to have exposed, and knotted fronts can leave me looking like I am pregnant. I made the purchase based on other reviews and I am very glad I did! The arm holes are a little large, but they are not gaping, and if you are a little self-conscious like me about "side-b**b", this dress will be one you may feel comfortable wearing without a shrug. The knotted front looks great and does not ;o) give you a bad silhouette! The print is also very nice and I really like the length on my 5'4" self as I prefer dresses that go just below the knee, but still shows leg. All in all, a great find!
