I’m your height and ordered the extra length. It is a lot longer and will need to be hemmed but I didn’t want to run the risk of a dress that’s too short. I personally wouldn’t risk it b/c if it ends up being too short, there is nothing you can do.

I think you do. I had an Sottero and Midgley dress and I wore 5 inch heels making me 5’9″.  I didnt have to have it hemmed at all. I think you need extra length.

I am not a Maggie Sottero bride but I am 5’11 and I ordered extra length for my wedding gown. I also ordered extra length for an Maid/Matron of Honor dress. I wore 4″ heels with the Maid/Matron of Honor dress and I am wearing 2 1/2″ heels with my wedding dress. I had my fitting on Friday and I will not need to have it hemmed. If you’re only going to wear 1″ heels I’d say don’t do the extra length because mine is pretty close, it was up in the air whether I’d need it hemmed or not. After they did all the alterations to make it fit on top it is exactly the right length with my shoes now but if my shoes were 1″ I would be tripping over it.

If you tried it on in the store and it was fine then I’d say you’ll be all set. If you got it and it were a little shorter you could always wear flatter shoes. Keep in mind with the extra length you’ll have to pay more $ for a hem so factor that in!

@philliesbride: I was a Maggie Sottero bride.  I am 6’0 and did not order the extra length, wore about 1″ heels, and the length was perfect.  If all of the Sottero dresses have the same length templates, I’d say you’d be fine!  Don’t know if that’s the case though..  Good luck! 🙂

I was a Maggie Sottero Davida Bride and I’m almost 5’10”. I did not get extra length. When I wore a 1 inch heel, my dress was 1 inch too long, when I put 2 inch heels on, it was perfect. 

I hope this helps!

Hi!  I’m 6’0 and my Maggie Sottero Claire dress was just perfect when I tried it on without shoes.  I ordered the extra length because I hadn’t chosen shoes yet and I wanted it to work out.  

I ended up getting two inch heels so I think it was worth having that flexibility.

Today is my second fitting.. I really hope she shortened it properly!!!

Good luck to you, and hello all my fellow tall brides!

I’m 5’11 with no heels and with my heels i’ll be 6’1. I have the Maggie Sottero “Nora” dress and I didn’t need to order extra length, even with my heels, it’s still long. Love it!
