I have always carefully stored it in a moth proof garment bag. The long ties have a bit of color change due to age, but nothing especially noticeable at all. This piece will EASILY fit nearly everyone including plus sizes, and I mean the armholes, the entire cut, everything! I wore it with the ties in a bow in back (see fifth photo) and there are snaps to close the front, but anyone can wear it with the sash tie creating a waist as well.
Untied it measures 64 bust and hips with a length of 47 inches. I can tell you it's a wrench to give it up, but I'm happy to knowing it will give a lot of happiness. I measure each item, including bust, waist and hip measurements where appropriate as well as the length of the garment.
