I had that issue too…just reloaded the page and the pictures came up.

I love your dress Wfmetallica.

I want to order from dressilyme too; I hear so many good things about them.

@Wfmetalica:  really pretty! I don’t particularly like the black sash with this style. It seems jarring and my eyes go right to it. Maybe a more champagne colored one similar to the first dress?

I agree that it looks much too short, I think it would hit you at the knee if not just above it. But the dress is gorgeous.

@Wfmetalica:  I love it! I don;t think its that flared, once you put a bit of a booty in there you might be surprised 😛

I would ask them for confirmaton on the hollow-to-hem length of the gown, and go from there for that. I find dresses have this massive illusion when you’re so short (Im 5’1″), they look like they will be mid-calf and they touch the floor ;D

It does seem a little short, but overall the dress looks really pretty.

@Wfmetalica:  I love it… its so pretty.

I really don’t like the black sash, I think a silver/champagne sash would be perfect.

I was instantly worried about how short it would be, it definetly looks like it is an above the knee dress but maybe thats just the angle the photo was taken. And if you want it more fitted just say as it does seem to flare a bit but I reckon that they have done an awesome job.

Ditto on the black sash being too dramatic (you can get a different color for $29 at David’s Bridal.)  Also the waist doesn’t seem much narrower than your bust and according to your measurements that’s a 11″ dip.  I am also 5′ and the length to me looks like it would hit right below the knee not tea length.  I love tea length and at 30 totally relate to the idea that when it’s flared it looks very “young.”

I really like it, and it seems they have tailored it quite nicely, but it looks way short. 

Send them a metric measurement, and see if that is what the length of the dress is.

I think it looks like it’s going to be very short, but otherwise well executed.

I’d be worried about the length.   Otherwise it looks pretty.  🙂
