BR Striped Knit Sheath Dress

Hello everyone! Happy Mother's Day!
I had the pleasure of visiting NY last weekend. OMG, it is definitely the most exciting busy place I have ever been to. I wish I could have stayed longer because I didn't get to do too much touristy stuff. I did get a chance to catch up with college friends, meet my bf's friends and also with Elle (from FF&FF). I feel like I have known Elle (via blogging) for so long time and it's nice to finally meet her in person. We had a blast shopping in SOHO and eating at Momofuku noodle bar. Elle is so genuine, kind and such a wonderful person. I'm so happy too have met so many wonderful people blogging. It's kind of crazy...haha! My coworkers and mom thinks I'm nuts for meeting people from the internet. LOL!
I haven't stepped foot into BR for the longest time. I was enticed by their 40% off any one full priced item promo, so I decided to go in and browse the store. I actually found a handful of stuff I wanted to try on, but of course everything was just too big except for this Striped Knit Sheath Dress.
Positives:  I am shocked at how small this dress fits compared to most BR dresses. The arm holes are small and waist is nicely fitted. The bust area is also perfect. I'd say this dress fits similar to a H&M 2 or an Asos Petite 0. Also the dress is not lined, but the heavier knit material keeps it from being see through.

Negatives: (see below) I'm kind of on the fence about this dress because of the back. As you can see the material doesn't lay flat and puffs up in the hip area.

What do you think? Is this a winner or is it a return due to the puffing in the back?
