Hi!  I’m tall as well 🙂  My dress is by Watters & they cater to tall brides!  The regular length worked perfectly for me (I’m only 6′ though), but I had the option to order the “tall” size – I think it added at least 3 more inches.

I also have a 37′ inseam and purchased a Sottero & Midgley off the rack!  I could hardly believe it.  I am use to always ordering gowns and waiting weeks/months.  I am a little over 6 ft… there is an awesome gown just waiting for you!

I’m not sure about the length thing!  Mine was a dress suited for a destination wedding, but they have sooo many other styles.

I found a great Watters dress that i loved, but it was too short in the regular and they were going to charge me a HUGE add on to get it in the longer length (I’m also 6′).  I ended up getting a sample Vera Wang gown and the length is PERFECT for me to wear 3 inch heels without any added on length.  I also had good luck in lengths with Lela Rose dresses. Good luck with your search!

I am not quite as tall as you, (I wish I were!) I’m only 5′ 10″, but many of the dress samples I tried were long on me.  I tried dresses on without any shoes.  I am going to wear low heels or flats because I was too cheap to have my dress made longer…I’ll know for sure when the dress comes in, but I think I can only wear about a 2-3 inch heel.  

Good luck – I’d love to see what you find!  I really reveled in my height when I was dress shopping because I felt that being tall helped me pull off a lot of bolder styles.  And it sounds like you are long-waisted, but in proportion to your height, since you have a 37 inch inseam.

Hi 50 foot bride! Your icon is so cute! Im 5’11 and had some of the dresses sit weird on me like you were saying. But the dress that I did buy is perfect. Its an Allure. I guess you just have to watch with the different styles. I think mine is an A-line…but there were some Alfred Angelo gowns that I loved online but looked horrible on me! But I love my Allure gown I cant wait for it to come in! Good luck on your shopping.

Hey,

I am 6ft with a 40 in inseam. I tried on Demetrios dresses that they were plenty long long with Maggie Sottero Destination dresses. Like you I was really nervous but it worked out well!  Most of them are long enough or can add a few inches. But most of them were perfect with no hemming up! Cheaper on the seamstress bill.

That’s my pants inseam but I’m only 5’11”. I wore a Maggie dress off the rack, size 10 and it just barely dusted the ground. I wore flat sandals. Some dresses I tried on were really long while some were really stupidly short. Like mid-calf, haha.

However, almost any dress that you order (so off the rack may not be for you but definitely look as I know some i tried on were waaaay long) comes in extra lengths.
