Stunt double dress on IMAN? Iman dress length misrepresented on IMAN on air!
I’m so mad! I bought Iman’s knockout maxi dress T/S last week and fooled once again, it arrived short!
I believe Iman must have “stunt double” dresses made for her for show airing because she is 5’9″ and in heels her dress was super long! I am so angry because I bought it in average thinking if it is long enugh for her, it wil be long on me at 5’9″ -WRONG! I loved the dress otherwise, but it was high water on me and looked rediculous with heels!
Sorry Iman, I am DONE with buying dresses from you only to return them because they are too short! Why can’t you make true LONG dresses for us 5’7″ and up girls??? Your long pants are amazing! I love them!
Truly not happy with you today 🙁 Please, No More “stunt doubles” !!!
NY2LAGAL, I haven’t purchased any of Iman’s maxi dresses because I need 60″ length. She says she buys her pants a couple sizes too big and takes them to the tailor to be altered. Everything she wears on air does look tailored to fit her, so I do think she may get her samples early and has them fitted.
Don’t know whats left in Clearance today but yesterday there were some great deals on maxi dresses.Some as low as $10.
Have any of you looking for longer maxi’s tried Nikki by Nikki Poulos ?
I am 5’8″ and find her dresses are long on me. I have been very pleased with her clothes, especially when traveling. I just pulled up 1 of her maxi’s and see it is 57″ long >> Nikki by Nikki Poulos “Loren” Maxi Dress-479-544.
5’7 is not average height for American women. You have options for where you can get your clothing. You may not like the prices, but they are there. It has been my shopping experience that its easier to find items on the taller side. Lengths are the same problem with petite statured women.
There is no standard by which a manufacturer goes by when creating maxis. They run the gambit in lengths. I’ve seen some start at 54 inches and go all the way up to 60 inches. You won’t find 60 inches here, (likely not) and I rarely find 50 inches here. It’s a never ending search.
Can’t blame a manufacturer though. Just don’t buy it, if it doesn’t fit. Just about every line on here, I would have problems with. This is even when they call it petite, since petite ends at 5’3. A lot of us lose out. It’s pointless, however to blame the designer for a dress you know full well won’t fit you, but you purchase it anyway.
Yes!!! … It is mighty difficult to get a True Maxi for average to tall women. A Maxi should be below ankle to floor length With shoes On!
I think that the dresses that the vendors and some models wear are altered to fit them.
I believe Iman was in flats, but still her dress looked mighty long compared to what some of the average height models had on.
They try to cover everyone and so medium to tall lose out…. But It is much easier to cut some of the hem off than it is to add more fabric to it.
I want my maxi dresses/skirts On The Floor!
I didn’t get Iman’s dress but I’ve gotten others that are Short. I noticed some by other vendors and they are Short. … Just don’t cut or hem them, allow us to hem at our desired length.
I always guesstimate my size based on the measurements and all the models giving their size and generally height out there. Usually works but sometimes things have to go back.
You have a 30 day return policy.
If you doubt the size and lenght measure one of your dresses and see how long it is. This is what I did for the average and found out all of my maxis are the same length as Iman’s average. I am 5’6. I wanted to make sure it would not hit the ground with flats. If fits perfectly.
I’m not sure how you can blame Iman or the manufacturer. The length of the dress is there (at least). That should have given you the information you need to determine if the dress was a good fit for you. If you’re 5’9 how did you expect either dress to be suitable as a maxi?
You make it seem like you don’t know your own stats and the limitations you have with your own height.
I see what you mean I’m 5’4″ and ordered both petite and average and was surprised at the length of the average on me Which turned me was perfect. I had thought I’d have to wear a three inch wedge as usual but a flatter shoe was fine.
Gorgeous dress but I’m returning due to having large girls and with this dress, I felt they entered a room first and quite noticeable. It’s a gorgeous dress but I’m too modest
