    As a man I am confused, why would you have this, I understand it helps on a long dress tht is more tricky to put on and off

    I have never seen one of these before but as womens' wear it is extremely attractive. It seems like it would be practical as a way to regulate temperature as well.

    Nice! Zippered backs make sweaters much more interesting.
