I am under 5ft with a princess ballgown, but my pictures are on lockdown until after the wedding – sorry, as I’m sure that’s not helpful!

A lesson I learned from my shopping experience which may be helpful though: the most flattering dresses to me were uniform in color and a-line/ballgown. Honestly, I only tried on one fit/flare to make sure I wasn’t missing something – and I definitely was not. When I went back and looked at pics of myself in ballgowns with different tops (ie: with heavy beading that looked different in color from the skirt) those just made me look like I had no legs! I also thought going into shopping that a belt would be most flattering to me… in general, it wasn’t BAD, but wasn’t better than the dress standing on its own.

Good luck on your dress hunt – hope you find something you love! Smile

I’m just over 5′ and loved my ballgown. Loved loved loved!  I was worried I would be swallowed up in the larger dress but it definitely suited me best.  

But–we all look different in our dresses; pictures of someone else aren’t going to tell you what you’ll look like.  Make sure you find the right one for unique you!
