According to this website, http://chicvintagebrides.com/index.php/wedding-dresses/25-tea-length-wedding-dresses/, ballerina length is anything that falls between mid-calf and ankle; so a bit longer than tea length. Tea length falls below the knee and above the mid-calf. Lots of good photos on that page!

I prefer tea length. It looks like the ballerina length dresses are long dreses that are too short for the girls wearing them. Just my opinion though!

I got a tea length dress and had it altered to fall just below my knee.  If you are short it is a more flattering length.  Before the dress was altered it fell mid-calf and made my legs look stumpy. 

I haven’t heard the term ballerina length before.

I like both lengths! I like tea length with heels and ballerina length with ballet flats (ala Audrey Hepburn).

almostaudrey:  I am also short (5’2”), and I couldn’t help but think that the ballerina length dresses would probably fit me perfectly as a floor-length dress! Definitely just below the knee is a super flattering length 🙂
