Hopefully someone can help me, I bought 3 Jim Hjlem 5033 dresses from bridesmaids.com and they arrived a few days ago. When I ordered them I asked for there to be extra length on two of the dresses but only one has arrived with the extra length. You see one of them was a size 18 which I didn’t realise I had to pay extra for so when filling out the form, I put down size 18 with extra length but I think they just took the money for the size 18 and then didn’t give the length. I’m really upset that they didn”t query my mistake of not adding in the extra money because if I had realised I would have paid the extra straight away but I know this is my own fault. Anyway my bridesmaid can’t try it on until next week so I’m just having a panic attack. She’s 5 7′ without heels, has anyway bought these dresses and know what the length is like? Some websites say that for these designer you need extra length if you’re over 5’7 and others say 5 9″ so I’m hoping we’ll get lucky but the suspense i killing me.
Thanks in advance

@Marlee: I had to buy a size 16 or 18 from them because of the sizing, and am 5’8 without heels. I bought the extra length for my Jim Hjelm and let me tell you – it ALL ended up being cut off. It was way way too much fabric. However, a friend of mine who is a similar size, but maybe 5’7 also got the extra length, and hers was fine. Maybe our bodies are different? I really don’t know. So, you won’t know until she puts it on but fingers crossed it works out!!

I was in a wedding with Jim Hjelm dresses, and every girl had to get theirs hemmed, including one who was 5’7

We just ordered some, and the sales person said you need extra length for 5’9” or taller.

Thanks everyone, hopefully it will be fine, I guess I just need to wait and see when the bridesmaid tries it on. I think I just got a bit worked up about it but thanks so much for the replies, I don’t feel so bad now 🙂

@Marlee: yea I would see how it is when she tries the sample on at the store. My mom got a Lazaro bridesmaids dress as her MOB dress and she ended up getting extra length because it was just a bit too short. I don’t know how off the sizing is though, I’m pretty sure she ordered an 8.
