Two weeks ago I received an email from a teenager asking for help. She needed assistance finding an extra long dress for her junior prom. She was trying to stay under $150 budget.
So of course, I scoured the internet looking for options. I provided her with the options below (I had to take out a few because they are already sold out!) and told her even though some places don’t have tall sizes they may still carry longer lengths. So for all of you on the hunt for special occasion dresses keep the following in mind as you search for dresses:
- Dresses 63″ – This will help you find longer dresses. Choose a length to search for that’s appropriate for your height: 63″, 64″ or 65″
- Dresses 41″ – This is for knee length. Use 41″, 42″, 43″ or 44″
*Click the links for more options.
If you go to your local bridal shop you will find some longer length options. Usually you can order them in a custom length.
- Strapless Prom Dress with Ruched Bust and Beading – 61″Length
- Long Strapless Mesh Dress with Beaded Waist - 67″L
- Long One Shoulder Jersey Dress with Beaded Waist – 61″L
If you have a House of Brides near you check them out to.
I’ve ordered from them before and they have awesome dresses. You can either order your size in a longer length or put in your custom measurements.
Love their new tall section! If you’re looking for something modern and sleek you should browse their tall dress selections.

Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack
Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack have saved me on many occasion. As you all know Nordstrom Rack is great for shoes, but they also sometimes have dresses that run extra long. I’ve been able to find some last minute special occasion dresses when I’ve waited to the last minute.
They have a longer lengths section for their dresses. I think their sizes may work best for tiny talls.
- Anticipated Moments Dress – Read the reviews on this one. Torso might be to short.
