@GrannyPantiesRock:  I also have long legs and a short torso! I am between 5’9 and 5’10 and although I can wear 34 inch inseam pants, I buy up 36 inch inseams whenever I can find them! If my torso was proportionate to my legs, I think I would be 6 ft tall or over. I also ended up with a natural waist dress. I really liked the look of the dropped waist ones and even tried on a few and liked the effect, but I think the natural waist just emphasized my figure more. However, it’s a natural waist A-line and I plan on bringing in the hip area closer to my body. Not quite to a fit and flare, but just less flared at the hip. I haven’t talked to a seamstress about it yet and maybe she’ll tell me if I pull in the hip I’ll lose the look of the tiny waist, but that’s the plan at the moment.

@GrannyPantiesRock:  I have a short torso coupled with large boobs and chose a natural waist dress as well.  This is what I looked like on our wedding day:

I’m in this boat, too. My arms and legs are much longer than they should be for my height. I haven’t tried on wedding dresses yet (newly engaged), but I know that typically, anything drop- or empire-waisted looks ridiculous on me. I’m definitely planning to look primarily at dresses that are either natural-waist or fitted past the hip.

I ended up wearing heels because my groom is so tall.

I am the same, I basically have 6 inches between my boobs and hips lol. Natural waist always looks best on me EXCEPT when I came to wedding gowns! I went with drop waist because its the only thing that made me look like a person with curves rather than a pair of boobs with legs lol. My wedding isn’t until April, but here’s my gown.

@GrannyPantiesRock:  Hello! I am 6’2″ and my torso is extremely short. My legs (from the floor to the top of my hip bone) is four feet. I wear 37 inch inseam jeans. Here is the dress I chose, which has kind of a drop waist/A line silhouette. I didn’t really need anything to “elongate” me, but I loved the fit of the dress. The corset back hid my love handles quite nicely!

I have a short tosro and big boobs and wide hips. I never wear shirts tucked in or anything that calls too much attention to my natural waist. I found that a fit and flare works best for me. I guess mine has an empire waist, because that’s where the beading is.

That’s me! I’m 5’7″ with a 35″ inseam! I ended up going drop waist, but I ALWAYS look better in natural waist dresses!

I am short (5’1″) AND short waisted — I had to custom order the bodice on my dress because of how little torso I have! BUT I got a ball gown with a natural waist and the custom bodice and it’s perfect. Unfortunately I won’t post pictures because I don’t want to reveal who I am IRL, but know if can be done!

@GrannyPantiesRock:  I wore the San Patrick Rafaga, which has a dropped waist and later I wore the San Patrick Eresma (mermaid style with ruffles). Here is what they both looked like on me:
