I won this dress from Missguided just before Christmas. I love the colour and the arms, but the length? Not-so-much.
At 5'4" this is only a few inches away from skimming my crotch. If I lift my arms up above my head everyone gets a free show. What is it like for anyone taller than me?
Is it too much to ask to have the fabric of the dress cover your bum when you sit down? This one does, but just barely. There is no way I'd be wearing this dress without tights.
So my solution to the problem is this…
I am so glad I didn't get rid of this petticoat from Anthropologie.
The bag is a long ago purchase from Anthropologie as well.
With the addition of these accessories this dress is much more "me".
I guess that lots of this obsession with super short dresses and skirts comes from Asia where they consider their legs to be one of their best assets and want to show them off.
I have seen some gals wearing their skirts so short that their butt cheeks hang out the back.
Really it's not a skirt at all. It's a waist ruffle.
I've even read that with all these super short skirts and dresses that subway seats, bus seats, restaurant seats, you name it are all covered in all kinds of bacteria because basically people are sitting on them butt naked. Literally. Their skirts and dresses no longer long enough to provide a thin layer of fabric protection between themselves and anywhere they choose to sit.
What do you feel about the length of skirts and dresses? Like Goldilocks…too short, too long or just right?
