The fabric is lightweight and flowy. The model in the picture is a little taller than the average girl but the romper does run short. This romper is great with sandals. The fabric is lightweight enough that it could also be used as a swimsuit cover-up. The strapless area of the romper is very stretchy and the waist is shirring and stretchy as well.
Laid flat measurements:
11 in across the chest---very stretchy
11 in across the waist
20.5 in from top of the strapless neckline to the bottom of the shorts
