I am around 5’7″ and just bought my shoes off of Ninashoes.com in the design your own feature! I got a 2.5″ heel. My Fiance isn’t too much taller than me, but with him wearing the nice shoes with a little bit of a heel on them, we’ll be about the same height to each other as we are barefoot. It stinks being tall sometimes!

I’m 5’8″ with a sample dress.  I’m wearing kitten heels.  Fiance is pretty close in height to me (he’s 5’11”) so I definitely want to look shorter!

Just think, you’ll be comfortable in your shoes all day!

I just ordered my dress yesterday.  πŸ™‚ 

I am not sure if the length of gown varies by manufacturer (my gown is a Rosa Clara), but I am almost 5’8″ and I will be able to wear 3.25 inch heels (probably even 3.5 inch heels) with my gown as is, i.e., without adding any extra length or having the dress hemmed.

Have you tried on shoes with your gown?

I am wearing 3.5″ heels with my dress. I am just at 5’7″ and did not order any extra length on my dress….they actually had to hem it about an inch. I originally wanted 4″ heels but Fiance is just at 6′ and I like him to be taller πŸ™‚ And we are having a Catholic ceremony which is an hr long and there is some standing, kneeling, and sitting involved and I thought it would be a bit safer (in regards to tripping somehow) by lowering my shoe by ½” πŸ™‚

Hmm…maybe you should just try shoes of varying heights on with your dress?  I’m around 5’7.5″ and have a sample dress.  My 3″ heels are being shipped, but I think (hope!) they are going to work.  I would try shoes of different heights (just from your closet) on w/ your dress.  It may end up working out.

That’s weird! I’m 5’8″ and bought a sample dress, and had to have it taken up it was so long, plus I wore 3″ heels with it! I think I got lucky!

@Laylabelle: It may also depend where you carry your height.  I have a super-short torso (for my height) so I actually need the dress taken UP on top.  But I have really long legs (34″ inseam) so the length is perfect.

Try on shoes with different heights. I ended up wearing a 2.5 inch heel and it worked perfectly. In fact, by the end of the evening, my gown was to the floor (the silk satin gown sorta melted when I danced!)

Well then, it ain’t over until every heel height has been attempted!  I think you might be pleasantly surprised! *Fingers crossed* for ya Doll!

I’m 5’7 and bought a sample. With my 4″ heels, it’s the perfect length. No adding or hemming necessary πŸ™‚

@hotchild – I’m pretty proportionate…. long torso, long legs. I think it was the designer. It was a VERY long dress.
