I notice there are a few comments about the short-waisted dresses in the product reviews. I like the empire line, it's quite flattering on me and I've bought a few dresses of this style from LTS this spring 2011. I'm 5'11" and the empire line is just under my bust as it is supposed to be. However, being long in the body, I have to say these dresses only just fit on me. I can understand that they may be short-waisted for ladies a lot taller than myself.
