Mrsclause:  I am 5’2 and my dress is slightly different… Also keep in mind that the seamstress pinned it up so I could see what it may look like at the appropriate skirt length and the size I tried on is too small and I am going to add tuille underneath to make the skirt bigger, but …

I also want to add that I did try on other ballgowns and the dress was wearing me. It just depends on what type it is, I think! If the dress does this when it comes in then there is always the option of taking some of the tuille out so I think that either way the dress will be amazing. Congrats on finding the dress!

Mrsclause:  I had the same concern with my dress as I am only 5’2. is it possible to order a petite size? My dress was ordered in a petite and the only alterations I need is adding bustle. I would ask the bridal salon as they may not offer petite sizes as an option up front since they would make more $ off of alterations of a regular sizes dress!!

Mrsclause:  Were you given the option of ordering the dress in a shortened length? When the salon sent my measurements in to Allure they suggested that they alter the length of the skirt themselves 5-8″, so they are shortening it by 5″ so it will be more porportionate at a shorter length. I agree that it does feel daunting, but I think in the end it will be worth it and you will love it in the end. When does your dress come in???

Mrsclause:  thank you so much   I was worried for quite awhile that maybe the dress was tooooo much, but after my fitting I fell in love with it again! I never planned on having a ballgown since I’m so short- I figured mermaid- but when you love a dress that’s all that matter and it always works out!
