Dress Length Guide: Mini, Knee, Floor-length and more

By Bebefuzz

To make dress shopping super-easy, here's a dress length guide. Refer to this guide with the length measurement to figure out how long a dress will be on you.

Micro Mini Length

For a short mini dress...

If you are 5 foot 2 inches or shorter (156 cm or less), a dress with a total length of 28 inches (71 cm) will most likely provide that sexy super mini length.

If you are 5 foot 3 inches to 5 foot 8 inches (160 cm - 173 cm), look for a dress that is around 30 inches (76 cm) long.

If you are 5 foot 9 inches or taller (175 cm or more), look for a dress that is around 33 inches (84 cm) long.

Deduct 7 inches from the total length for strapless dresses. For example, if you are 5 foot 5 inches, a 23 inch (30-7=23) strapless dress will be of short mini length.

Conservative Mini Length

If you are 5 foot 3 inches to 5 foot 8 inches (160 cm - 173 cm), find a dress that measures around 34 inches (86 cm) in length.

If you are 5 foot 9 inches or taller (175 cm or more), get a dress that measures around 37 inches (94 cm) in length.

If you are much shorter or taller than what is specified in this guide, the measurements may not be as accurate. These are approximations that should help most. :)
