First off, I have to say that the skirt is a very nice quality, and very comfortable. As another reviewer said, it's also really fun to "swish" around. That being said, for some odd reason I felt like the photo made it look longer. I would have preferred full-length. Then again, I think it hits me higher than some people because I'm 5'8, and the average woman is 5'4.
I am a belly dance lover and was looking for a light-weight and quiet hip adornment. This is a great alternative to traditional hip scarves that weigh down your dance bag or make too much noise for class. I received the item on time, it is a great color, very sparkly and overall a good product for the price.
