I wore to a benefit fashion show and it was a nice, sophisticated dress.
This is not a dress for a long-waisted individual. I had to baste the sides where the hips are supposed to be in this dress and the waist was a little high. The length was still really nice. Not long, but I also didn't feel self conscious about it. Due to the stretch of the fabric, it does ride up every now and then, and especially when you sit down if you're not paying attention. But again, there is enough fabric that it never is a real issue. I generally wear a four, but the waist on the six fit well enough around. It was also accommodating for my comparatively larger bust. The cut of the straps seemed a little wide; the top of the back puffed out unless the straps were all the way to the edge of my shoulders, but then my bra straps would have shown and that is not where the straps naturally lay.
Overall, it's a slick, sophisticated dress.
