I am longer in the torso, wide shoulders, but not a big chest . . . so you really have to try it on to see how this will flatter your body or not. The drawstring hits me mid-torso, the longer peplum hides my belly well, and I like the easy/casual feel of the sleeves. If you have a larger bottom, it can help slim this area, however, it has potential of emphasizing your rear if you are not careful with where the gathers are going. I am so happy to see a longer peplum!
