Chapel train!

You may want to have people post their height too. My dress technically has a chapel train (sorry, don’t have a pic), but because I am 5’9″ with long legs, the train looks very short on the ground. I’d need a cathedral train for it to look like the previous poster’s, even though they are called the same thing. Trains are measured from the waist, so height makes a HUGE difference.

If I was adding much of a crinoline or wearing any sort of heel, my dress would have been too short and I would have had to order extra length.

They say ine is chapel, but is a bit shorter than that… I am about 5’3″ so the dress it a good 3+ inches too long on me 

This isn’t my dress, but one that I tried on at a DB. The website says it chapel length, but it was a lot longer on me because I lean slightly more towards the petite  side (I am wearing 3 or 4 inch heels in this pic).

Here is mine, it is Cathedral length, the same length as Kate Middleton’s dress.

 

 

  

Bustle:

 

Here it is bustled, She did one over bustle and two small under bustles on each side. It made the gown the same length all around when bustled. Very comfortable too.

I actually don’t know what you’d call it? A long train? Haha
