I am 5’5″ and I got an a-line ball gown type of dress. I am a size 12-14 so that style complements my curves and doesn’t make me look too short. If you are not super curvy, I would try an empire waist line on a dress. They really elongate your torso.

Congrats on the engagement and good luck with everything! πŸ™‚

I am just under 5’3 and it will all depend on your body shape as well. The salon should be able to tell you what shapes are best so it depends on what you want. I could order my dress in three different lengths the shortest one fit me perfectly it did not need to be hemmed at all. It’s a Mori Lee 4866 and I was wearing flats as my dear wife is shorter than me πŸ™‚

Hi! I’m 4’10” and FI is 6’2″ so I totally get feeling weird standing next to him πŸ™‚  I got a ballgown because I found that the dresses with the drop waists and fit and flares made me feel really really short, like they cut off my legs.  So I found something with a natural waist line.  This pictue is me in the sample, which is a size 4 (if they had a negative 2 it would be my size) and I’m standing on a platform but when I stood on the floor and they kind of tucked it in, I felt like it elongated my bottom half.  Good luck I hope you find something you love!!!

ETA: you don’t look 4’10 either. I know how hard it was to find a dress that kept my  proprtions  balanced too cuz I am barely 5’0″ and will be wearing flats πŸ™‚ I ended up choosing this:
