The dress is a straight line dress with an attached bow. It has a vintage squared back zipper. The measurements for this fabulous piece are: Top-Bottom: 55"~Under Arm - Under Arm: 17 1/2" Measured one side flat~Waist: 18" Measured one side flat. Please note that there is some lightening to the material under the arms. Luckily, even though it is an actual discoloration, when it is being worn, it appears as though the velvet is shining due to it being brushed the opposite direction of how the material should lay, so it doesn't totally appear as a discoloration. I have included photos of both sides of the under arms so that you may see the appearance.
