I'm a taller lady and this dress was too long
Size worn: 18WL
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I read that this dress ran small so I ordered 2 and 3 sizes up from my normal size. I also read that women who are taller should get the long size.
The dress I wondered that was 3 sizes larger than my normal size was just a little big too big but fit well EXCEPT that you are supposed to wear ginormous shows with this dress.
I'm used to long dresses not being very long for me so I never wear heels (plus, I'd break my ankles in heels) but this dress needed me to wear 3+ inch heels.
Ladies who are 5'8-5'10 who don't want to wear heels- don't get the long size! The front of the dress has about 6 inches of extra fabric to trip over (this would mean that the long was designed either for people who float or for women over 6'4' (not 5'8-5'10). The dress I wore already had holes in the hem when it arrived.
I ended up holding up the sides of the dress all night.
The dress looked great but if I had ordered my normal size it would not have fit and even as a taller lady, the long was far too long.
