    If it’s more your style, why not go for it? I think there is a thread showing plus size brides in tea length dresses if you want to see examples!

    That was one of my runner-up dresses! I think if you want to go tea-length, go tea-length! You’ll look amazing (just like you already do!) in a tea-length dress 🙂

    @carmariebee:  Well, the pictures you are showing are not actually tea length.  Tea length is right about your ankle – level.  

    Either tea length or just below your knee would be lovely with that dress!

    Tea length hemlines are tricky, because they can make legs look shorter and thicker – especially for someone who’s petite.  I wouldn’t recommend it but if you’re going to do it, I’d suggest getting it cut just a touch higher than tea legth, literally right at the bottom of the knee (second model pic).  And rock those heels!  They will go a long way to improve the shape of the legs. 🙂

    I’m doing a tea-length dress (with a crinoline for a very full skirt) for our small and non-traditional wedding. So cute, so chic, so retro, shows off my awesome bright red shoes, way more comfortable, looks adorable in seated pics… and I think your dress style looks DARLING in tea length with the tulle skirt. Do it!

    I voted tea! I am a short lady as well (5’2) and have been dreaming of a tea length dress since I was little, but have been told time and time again that I’m too short for one! I say go for it! I plan on it!

    Oh, and if you do, PLEASE UPDATED WITH PICTURES 😀

    You look amazing in the ballgown. Maybe do a tea length dress for the rehearsal dinner?

    I’m 5’2″ and endowed. I wore a tea length dress for prom. AMAZING

    Go for it! Just make sure the waist is snatched. A little jutting from the waist instead of a droopy A-line makes all the ddifference
