The diagonal stripes are playful and interesting, and the high neckline can work on a larger bust. It IS more of an empire cut and not suppose to sit on the waist unless you are very short-waisted. The asymmetrical hem is fun, and the fit is flattering, thereby narrowing at the torso and gliding over the bottom half of the body. Excellent camouflage for muffin top, and well suited to a curvy figure. This one followed me home.
