I ride a bike with a 56cm seat tube, 53cm top tube both measured c to c because of this. The bike looks kinda funny.

My bike has a 55cm top tube, 46cm seat tube (c to t), and a 76 degree seat tube angle.

I'm 5'4".

From experience, if custom isn't in the budget, consider a too big compact frame. I currently have a semi custom DeSalvo, but the best fitting bike I've ever had was a XXL compact. With a 77 cm saddle height, the 20 cm head tube gave me a 4.5 cm bar drop. The positioning of my body between the wheels was pretty spot on.
