Ozge:  

You have to measure yourself in your heels. I work at a bridal salon and it’s the only way to know for sure, even with ordering a custom length you still may need it to be tweaked somewhat in alterations. You have to do a hallow to hem measurement it’s pretty easy. If the 55″ seems it will be too short then do the 58″ you can always take away fabric, never add it. 

Here is a nifty guide that will also help you make sure you did your other measurements correctly (most girls measure the waist too low for example)

Also when doing the hallow to hem you do need to pull the measuring tape out slightly (or more if a ballgown) to allow for the flare of the dress. The only time you woulding is if it’s a sheath dress and falls flat.

I am 4’9 and I have 4 and a half inch heel and I ordered the petite size and I still needed to trim one or two inches off my dress. I would order the the 58 inch dress if I were you.

I would say you would need the 58 inch. I am 5’4 planning to wear flats and got the 55 inch length. My dress is fit and flare but if I had chosen ballgown I would have looked at the 58 inch option.

Ozge:  You would probably be better with the 55″, 5’2″+4″ puts you at 5’6″ish. I just ordered a dress with 59″ hem to hollow and I will be 5’11”. The 58″ is going to be too long and need to be hemmed.

You will more than likely have to still get it hemmed a bit if you go with the 58 inches

Ozge:   Hi just curious what lenght did you order your dress. And how did it fit? I was told to order the 55 but now I want to order a 58. Thanks
