I could tell by the photo that this dress probably wasn't an empire waist, but it said it was in the overview so I thought I'd give it a try. It is NOT an empire waist. The elastic sits at my natural waist - at my bellybutton. It just made me look wide - maybe a little too many gathers and ruffles. I'm 5'7", 145 lbs. It was really comfortable though. It might work for wearing around the house, but I wouldn't even want my husband to see me in it, so I'm returning it.
