It's unfortunate that this was styled tucked in the photo because it's best left UNtucked and worn over all sorts of bottoms. It's quite soft as far as lurex fabrics go, and has a manageable blouson sleeve. It glides over the body in a fluid and dainty way. Works well on a shorter neck and larger bust. Might need a camisole. I did not find it short like the reviews suggest. A versatile party piece.
