You could call and ask another salon that carries watters to see if there’s a difference in length. Often times there’s not a difference until above size 10 or more.

Are you sure there is a length difference between the 4 and 6? 5’9″ is not that tall for bridal sizing. Most dresses are sized with the standard of height being between 5’7″ and 5’10”, so she’s kind of right in there. You could always call Watters customer service to ask if the recommend you order extra length (which would probably be better than ordering a larger dress).

There might be certain times when the dress gets longer, but perhaps not between a 4 and a 6.  Just because someone is a 4, that doesn’t mean they are shorter than someone size 6. This si why petite and tall exist.

5’9″ and size 4…what is this chic a supermodel?  I say go with the size 4, I am 5’8″ and don’t really ever have any issues regarding length except for long maxi dresses….those always hit me at a bad spot on my ankle

The size six won’t add length, you need to order a 4 but see if you can get it with extra length
