What shape dress is it and where are the seams? Many dresses only come in normal height and tall anyway. You often have to get quite far into designer land or spend a heck of a lot on a custim hallow-to-hem cut to get a shorter dress. Chances are if you ordered in the salon, you’d be getting this length dress anyway.

Whether or not the dress can be altered really depends on the style of dress, whether you have a long torso, etc.  For example, if you were interested in one of those dropped waist dresses with ruffles and a train, it might be difficult to do.  

 

I ordered my dress online, but researched the hell out of it, and tried to find pictures of as many women wearing the dress as possible.  I paid special attention to short, stocky women wearing it, since that’s how I’m built.  Since the dress looked good on them, I took the risk and ordered the dress.

I would still message the buyer and verify that it is the actual dress. I found what I thought was a great deal on a dress.  The seller used the stock photo from the designer, but when the dress arrived it was a very cheap replica.  I ended up getting my money back from eBay, but it was a pain.

Who’s the seller?  I live near Lexington, so I could tell you if it’s a legitimate B&M store.
