Hi, I'm Lauren and I am 5'9. Yes, I realize that is not the "average" height, however I am also a paying costumer to
Why, you may ask?
Because while I enjoy showing off a beautiful dress or skirt, I do not enjoy showing off my booty and other business. Sadly, most of your skirts/dresses are so short that I wouldn't even be able to sneeze without sharing my bits with the whole world.
Therefore I beg you, please, please, please, please for the love of God lower your hemlines.
Guess what?! If they are a little too long for people they can be hemmed, but if they're too short for others it's not like we can add fabric to it.
Like this precious little polka-dotted number from Red Dress Boutique..

And on that topic, can we discuss how some stores have gorgeous pants in tons of beautiful colors like teal, lime, maroon and red but don't offer any colors but gray, black and khaki in talls and petites (see it's not just about the taller people)?!
My beloved New York & Company with all its amazing work (and casual) clothes has beautiful pants in a wide variety of colors for the "average" costumer....
But wait... no "Ultimate Coral" or "Caribbean Blue" for you taller/smaller people!
So designers, let's think about the non-average people in the world when we start making things! k, thanks, bye.
