    I think it is more flattering longer.

    I like it longer. It’s gorgeous! I think maybe some blingy jewelerry of some sort would work ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Puppy Love:  You’ve got the legs for it.  Do it up!

    I prefer tight-fitting dresses to have longer hems (tends to look more elegant/professional). BUT this is your bachelorette, so who wants to look professional?

    However, there is a bit of a dilemma:

    • The shorter hem elongates your legs, and is much more suited to a nighttime look, whereas the longer hem makes you look ready for a bridal shower or a daytime garden wedding. 
    • On the other hand, the longer hem slims your upper thighs/hips more, and provides a more flatter silhouette than the shortened dress. 

    Which do you prefer: longer hem/slimmer silhouette VS. shorter hem/longer legs?

    You really can’t go wrong either way.  But in my opinion, leaving it the way it is looks best.

    It looks more ladylike and appropriate longer.  You do have nice legs though, so you really can’t go wrong.

    I think both lengths are flattering on you.  The longer version is more appropriate for a bridal shower or dinner while the shorter is better for a bachelorette party or a night out.

    @Puppy Love:  The bustline of the dress is HIGHLY conservative (esp. for a nighttime look). So if you want to wear it for your bachelorette, I vote to go shorter! I have yet to meet a woman who would complains about how a dress makes her legs look long and hot.

    @Puppy Love:  I think it’s classier and actually sexier as it is. It seems to accentuate your figure more a bit longer.
