This looks like it has a shorter torso length, especially in the front. Or is it just the picture? Thanks!
The back does drop a bit more than than the front (by about an inch). Some of the appearance you are seeing is an artifact of the photo but there is some (minor) difference between length in the front and back. The drop hem will allow the back to stay tucked under a harness much more easily when the wearer bends over.
