I ordered this dress online and am waiting for it to arrive, but I’m second guessing myself.
I bought it to wear to an upcoming wedding. Do you think it’s too short??
I’m posting picture of two different models – it’s 27″ long – one looks way to short and the other looks passable… thoughts??
It’s BCBG Jorie in the purple color

How tall are you? I’d order it, try it on, and make the decision then.

@peachacid: 5’6 1/2″
I’m also in my late 30’s, if that makes a difference for age appropriateness 😉

I think it’s the same size in each pic, but the second model has hiked it higher over her boobs.

I think it’s super cute!
If you attended my wedding and you were my friend/family member, I’d love it and compliment you. If you attended my wedding as someone’s date and we’d never met before, I might give you the evil eye for a minute for looking so hot. So I guess it depends on who’s wedding you’re attending. HAHA Just being honest. 🙂

It’s cute, but I am always of the “if you have to ask and aren’t sure, don’t wear it and you won’t worry about it” club.

I think it’s on the borderline of acceptable and a little too hot. When dressing for events like weddings I prefer to have at most one area exposed, so for a strapless dress I’d probably go knee length or for a shorter dress I’d be more covered up top. That’s just my rule, and I have seen women wear dresses like that to weddings, but the majority of the dresses I’ve seen at weddings are a little more conservative than that. If you had a shrug/cute cardigan to pair it with it would be great – and then you’d have the option of shedding it later in the evening when everyone’s had a few and the dancing is in full swing.

Great dress! I think it’s definitely appropriate as long as it’s not a black tie wedding. If it makes you feel any better, I’m wearing a dress of similar length to a wedding next weekend as well.

Crap, I voted before I read all of the posts. It’s a very cute dress, but wow, 27″ long? With no bra (C cup) on me at 5’1″, that’s just above my knees, which is fine, but if your boobs are bigger, and with you being taller and in your late 30s, I say no (even though I voted yes).
However, put it on when you get it and if you don’t feel like it’s too short, go for it.

i think you should wait and try it on, if you see it’s too short dont wear it 🙂

I agree with a bunch of the posters above- it’s a great dress! Try it on once you get it, and if it looks to be an appropriate length, go for it!!!

I am 5’6 1/2″ and a 27″ length comes to just below my fingertips, so I think it will be ok.

I’m sure that you are a beautiful young woman with a fantastic figure, and I think that the details ON the dress are very pretty. However, I personally think that the combination of strapless and too short is never a good idea.

Sure, I think it’s pretty!

I agree with @Brielle: I dont like the combo of short AND strapless
