Bought this as a coverup to recent trip to Mexico. I am there 2 weeks/year….and like to have several light-weight coverups to wear. I like the length bc it is not too short….covers my bottom/thighs and still looks trendy. I like the shoulder slits too! The only thing that is not desirable is slipping it over your head since it does not have a front closure. Still great looking/good value.
