Sooo I'm over here DROOLING at those back shots on the vet forum and I'm seeing ladies who are 5'7" with 24 inch hair touching there butts.

Me I'm a little one, I just made 5'3 1/2 Last month and now I'm thinking 22" is gonna be too long. I usually wear 12-14 inches and i never really thought about how much longer 22 would be but now im like "Maybe I should order 18 or 20" because I just want something just under "the twins" like mid back. I'm not trying to be sitting on my hair.

Could anybody who's a little more experienced with longer lengths help me out please???

Some ladies backs are longer than others regardless of height. I'm 5'8" and 22" measured from the nape reaches to small of my waist (natural waist) but in the front, hugs around te boob area. I suggest taking a measuring tape and measure from the nape in the back and front to see whre 20" hits you.

Thanks I was thinking about that too. My back is short like a 14 reaches my bra strap so idk wtf I was thinking about a 22-24 for. I would've been pissed if I spent $$$ for length and had to throw it away

Man, I wished 14" reached bsl on me lol and I understand about length....it hurts to cut length away since it could've been cheaper to buy shorter length.

I'm 5'2. I don't wear anything shorter than 20". 22" is my go-to longest bundle to purchase. I'll purchase 24" if 22 is unavailable or if I know the supplier I'm purchasing from is notorious for split ends, or if I want REALLY LONG KC hair.  24" touches my tailbone.

I haven't worn 20" yet, but I did just buy 20" wavy hair for summer and held it up to my nape to see where it hang. It falls past the twins when it's over my shoulder, and in the back I believe it fell right to my waist/butt area. it might be a tad bit long especially if you have a curious/touchy child. I got the length because I wanted to wear a long fishtail braid with it, so that could be a cute style to try when you want the hair out of the way

i am 5'2" and i wear 24 inches as my longest length. it hits at my lower back. i do not wear anything shorter than 20 inches.

its funny because i started wearing weave at 16 inches, but now that i started going longer i will never go back

I'm a little over 5'1 and 20" nearly touches my tailbone. lol
So for whore lengths, I choose 20in, 18in, and 16.
Or 24/22 for curly hair.
