Even the long is too short.
Went to a gala event. Read the reviews that said it ran short, but the long length wasn't available in my size (4). Ordered a 4R and a 6L, ended up with the 6L. The 4R was laughably short... it hit ABOVE my ankles in flats. With shapewear. The 6L was better... but in 2.5" heels, most of my shoes showed. It hit just above the floor in flats. Because of the shape of the dress, and the way the bottom flares out, it hangs better when you wear heels. Some of the beadwork was coming loose, but nothing too bad. Fit wise, the top was actually a bit big (which is not normally a problem for me in a 6)... I ended up having to tape down the armpit to keep it from gaping. It definitely needs shapewear to keep you from looking lumpy-bumpy. Overall, I liked the way the dress hung, and accentuated curves... but in retrospect, I wish I'd picked something a lot longer.
