cindy25:  Do you have a picture of you in the dress?  I’m 5 ft tall also and when I tried on my dress, the torso fell lower on me to mid to lower thigh than it did on the model, which is what I liked because it made it more trumpet or mermaid compared to it ending at the lower hip.

Does your designer have a hollow to hem option? If it is an option, you can try getting that done since your dress will be made to your size and proportion. Some designers like Casablanca will do it for free and other designers might charge $100-150.

cindy25:  Maybe wear a petticoat underneath so it will look a little more trumpet/mermaid like it does in alysee’s dress above? I think it will give it more shape, because right now unless you have it all nicely laid out, it doesn’t look very mermaidy to me.

cindy25:  This doesn’t help because this is a photo of when I tried on the sample dress, so I don’t know what it will look like when the dress comes in and what I need to alter. They never gave me an option for different lengths, but I’m hoping that it will fall the same as it did when I tried on the sample because I like i said before, I think it’s falling lower on me than it’s suppose to since I’m short. I posted on here saying I was regretting my decision on the dress because it was too flowy at the bottom and was more romantic than I wanted because I wanted a more wow dress, so people suggested wearing a petticoat underneath so that it would give me the shape I was looking for.

Im 5’0 also and I went with the mori lee 5108. I actually felt like it made me look a tiny bit taller and skinnier, which is always a plus. My heels are about 3-3.5 inches so i will still be way under 5’5 on my wedding day. I feel like my dress fits me perfect and is the perfect shape for my body especially my height.
