now length is a personal choice. i personally think it's too short, but it has to be what your comfortable with and what is appropriate for the situation you are wearing it in.

yeah, it's definitely a personal preference thing. if you feel comfortable in something that length, go for it. I went to a college where all dresses and skirts had to be knee-length, so for me, nothing above knee length would really be comfortable.

Definitely depends on how you'll fill that dress and age. I'm currently having issues when older (45+) women in really short dresses.

personally i think any dress that covers all the bits are good! lol. I'm not very tall so I like short dresses, medium length dresses make my legs blergh, especially when my legs arn't very straight. like others said i think it's more of a personal choice to suit your needs :) gorgeous dress tho

That is a shirt.  I'd either have to be completely drunk or drugged to wear that.  They look like crack whores that got dumped from a john's car and they didn't have the chance to dress.

My first thought was that if she stood up straight, you'd see her crotch of her underwear.

I think that in most cases the fingertip rule holds strong.

 

Stand up straight, arms down. If it doesn't go to your fingertips, it's a bit too short.

 

But my test when I'm feeling confident - bend over as far as you possibly would during that day -- did you reveal anything?
