Mine is a Maggie, and I ordered 3 inches extra length. I’m 6’1″.

@nearlymarriedlass:  Your dress looks great!

I’m 5’11 and my dress is a standard length Maggie Sottero gown. I’m wearing Vera Wang flats on the day.

I am 5’8, so not as tall as some of you other ladies… but my dress needed no alterations to the hem, and apparently that was pretty uncommon for this dress because the seamstress couldn’t believe it!

I’m 6’1″ and I when I was shopping for my dress I ALWAYS had to crouch down so it could cover my feet and I could get a better idea of what is was supposed to look like. I pretty much came to terms with the fact that I would have to find something in extra length until I found my dress. It is Forver Yours 46227. It hasn’t been altered or anything yet. My seamstress even said she could move the scalloped lace down at the botton to give it an extra inch or two.

@Pinkmoon:  I have a photo of myself in that exact dress, in that exact bridal shop ๐Ÿ™‚ Lol. I had to do a second take and then I saw that you live in Canada. 

I LOVED that dress, but my mom and Maid/Matron of Honor didn’t! It looks SO GOOD on you! Gotta love Maggie Sottero ๐Ÿ™‚

Im 6 foot by the way, and ended up ordering my Maggie 3 inches longer as well!

I’m a tall 5’9, and am planning on wearing heels on the big day (3-4″) so I ordered my Paloma Blanca with extra length,

@nearlymarriedlass:  thank you!! I fell in love with the illusion neckline as soon as I saw it. 

Did anyone else get a longer than usual timeline if they ordered extra length? Mine is taking 8-9 months just beacuse of that requirement.

I’m 6’1 and mine is a Galina gown from David’s. It hasn’t been altered yet in the pics, but I kind of like the length bc I’m going barefoot for the ceremony and I want it to be obvious.
