I am also very tall (5'11" in bare feet) & this dress is very long! It is a perfect length for me with heels on and the train sweeps along the floor so if you are of normal or small stature I would say you might find this dress too long! I'd recommend ordering it in custom measurements or be prepared to pay a seamstress to have it taken up!
Overall, I'm so so pleased with it - it's gorgeous on - the material is beautiful, very flattering & the train flows beautifully. The split on the thigh is quite high up - I like it like this as I have very long legs but again, it may be too high for people of smaller stature! Also, when standing normally, the split isn't really visible & the dress looks whole at the front.
Highly recommended - this is my first purchase from lightinthebox.com & I'll DEFINITELY be purchasing again soon!
