The way the ballgown fits on you actually makes you look taller than you are. Are you wearing heels? Either way, the gown does not have the shortening effect that some gowns do. You look lovely! 

ETA: I see that you put that you are wearing high inch heels but are standing on the floor. At my first interpretation I thought that meant you were standing on the floor in this picture, but would be wearing 5″ heels the day of. I see now that it not the case. I do think it would still be fine with 4 inch heels but anything under that may be unflattering.

@Lutie:  Are you planning on wearing 5″ heels the day of your wedding? If yes, then I think you could get away with this dress.  If no, then I fear that you might look like your drowning in fabric.  I’m 5’3″, curvy, and looked like I was drowning in fabric when I tried on ballgowns.  If you really love that dress in particular you can always have some of the tulle layers removed to make it less poufy.

I wish I were young enough to have been able to pull off a ball gown and not look ridiculous!  You, however look amazing!

i think you look great.  if you are going to be wearing 5″ heels like in the picture, perfect. 

it’s really all about how you feel in the dress that makes the difference.
