I'm not typically a longer dress girl. I'm only 5'3" and often a long dress overwhelms my frame. But the color on this was too pretty not to try. The length ended up being a longer midi, but not fully a maxi on me. I don't mind showing my arms in the summer because well it's hot and who cares. But if you are more conscience about your arms, how cute would it be to layer a white tee UNDER it. Right? then you still get to keep the fun bow details.
Fit Advise: I typically wear about a 1X and did end up keeping the 1X in this one. I actually thought it ran a bit big. I am a busty girl and even in the 1X I had a bit extra room. It still looked ok due to the rouching but the bust area rode a bit onto my tummy and I had to adjust throughout the day so I didn't look cut off weird. The tie straps are fully adjustable.
