Rated 3 out of 5Â by sunnycmg Short!
This "cover-up" really is stunning. The silk feels substantial (as if it could be used every day without ripping or snagging) and the colors are bold. I was afraid it would add weight to my hips and/or make me look frumpy, but it surprisingly did not (I'm usually a XS on top and a 27 on bottom, size 0-2 in dresses and I took the XS in this, which had extra fabric/room but nothing odd about the overall look). There's two big problems for me here: (1) anything silk is never going to be a cover-up for me--it will always be a dress or tunic, never near chlorine or salt, and (2) the front and back "V's" are SHORT! Cannot be worn solely as a dress short! I'm 5'3 on a good day, and the "V" was hardly more than an inch away from showing everything. I would consider it with shorts/leggings if I was taller, but at my height it just seemed odd and over-done. Also, the back did not come down nearly as low as I imagined it would, nor did the side panels (they reached about 2 1/2 inches below my knee).
