    I'm alittle over 5'10 and i've had a hard time too. When i got into ballroom i was told being tall was great but i notice that most are 5'7 and below. I was shocked when i met the cast of Dancing with the Stars, they came to my chest or below:) I want a beautiful Rumba dress, but i have a feeling the bodysuit won't be long enough for me since i have a long torso.

    I just wanted to share that i have couple new dresses from Olga Tsikalyuk and they will fit tall ladies easily, some will be quite comfy for 5'9 maybe even more and some will fit up to size 10. She asked me to help her sell them before seh moved from NY.. so I have a total 5 now but will have 2 more I believe from her

    so kat, that gold dress is for rent for tall girls now? I thought you gonna to wear yourself and in that case, requires shorten, since Abby says it's bit long for her and she sometimes steps on it.

    Tall dancers unite!

    Hi Ladies,

    I'm tall too - 5'11" before my shoes. I dance American Smooth and a bit of rhythm, but might have to switch to standard to find an Amateur partner. Thank goodness my coach/Pro-Am teacher is 6'5"!

    I have had luck with some of the ebay stores that will custom make your dress for the same price or just slightly more. Sometimes Rainbow Shiu via ebay also has gowns at killer prices that work well for even my height.

    Please keep me looped in to this thread and we can help each other out!

    Cheers!

    That white dress is AMAZING. Better for a girl with dark hair but when I looked at the picture I thought Wow!

    I'm planning to sell my old dress and I'm seeing a couple here where, if I get what I want for the old one, I just might be very interested. Are you going to be at Ohio this year?

    Also, when you give US sizes on a dress, is there any way of giving measurements? I have clothes that are labeled six and clothes that are labeled ten and they both fit, so I have no idea what number size I am!
