I am absolutely petrified for my first dress try-ons (I’m so waiting for spring, when I feel better about myself, haha!) but I’m looking at different dresses just to see what’s out there and to have a feel for what I want to try on.
So I think this dress has the possibility of being The One, but I’m 5′ and chubby – er, I have curves! (115 lbs, hoping to get to 100 by next year). What do you think? Would you try it on?

You should totally try it on! I’m 5’1″ and about 112 and thats the kind of dress I got b/c it flatters and makes me look taller. My advice is to get a dress with a lace up (i dont know if that’s the right term) back this way you can tighten it to look however you want. Also wear high heels b/c it lengthens!! Good luck dress hunting!

I think that dress has potential to look great on you! I’m only 5’2″ and my dress is also a trumpet/mermaid silhouette.

Thanks everyone! This is why I love the Bee… you’re giving me the confidence to own that dress (and any others I try on).
@Krissycake and Miss Starlet – thank you! I think it’s something about being so short, that when I put on 5 lbs it feels like SO MUCH, you know? Whereas a taller girl could put on 5 lbs and not notice at all.
@meliss – thanks, I will head over and check it out! I don’t think there is a universal “good” silhouette for petite brides, so it’s nice to see what worked for others (and what didn’t.)

I say go for it! You never know what anything looks like until you try it on! I just went dress shopping with one of my best friends, and she was sure she wanted a certain type of dress, but when she tried it on, it did nothing for her. She went with a completely different style.
Hope you have fun dress shopping!

Lillyfaith, you are NOT chubby! I’m 5’2 and 120-125. I bet you will look amazing in that dress. I think Meliss is also a petite bride and she’s wearing a Lazaro gown with the same silhouette.

Please don’t say you’re chubby at 115. I did the same thing when I was younger and now I know that even at 125 and 5’1″ I’m not “chubby”. Curvy a bit, but not chubby.
Decide what dress you want after trying them all on. You never know what might look good.

Aw, thanks guys. I am definitely trying on a lot more than just this dress, I just love online dress shopping! I’m also still trying to decide where to go… I’m thinking Macy’s and Vera Wang just to see how things fit. I’m hoping then I’ll be able to find the perfect dress used on Once Wed or something.

Yes – that looks exactly like the dress I had. I’m 5’4” and I rocked Maggie Sottero’s Phillipa.
