One major issue is that most dresses and skirts are designed for short people. I've noticed that even when I find a cute dress or skirt, it will be several inches above my knee in the front and 4 inches shorter than that in the back.
If you are one of the millions of well-endowed women with an ample rear window, you can feel my pain! While being bootilicious is the "in" thing right now, it does take a lot of fabric to cover all that up. So, if you start with a dress like this one that's already short in the front, and add in some booty, you can imagine the draft a girl will feel!
I like this dress. I like the fabric and the detail and I can see myself wearing this to a wedding, or to work, or to church - with a chain belt so it does not make me look like I'm expecting. I would not buy it because it's just too short. While this may be okay for club-hopping, if you are not a club-goer you would be hard-pressed to find other occasions to wear it alone.
