I’m 5’4 and my dress was a size 16. It’s the Maggie Sottero Gatsby.



This was my runner-up, for another perspective.

I’m about 5’5 and dress size 16 as well! I found that A-lines and ballgowns were my favorite (because I like poof, mostly!), but there were certain mermaid and fit-and-flare that were pretty, too! I couldn’t pull off an empire waist, but that has a lot to do with my high natural waist and rather large chest :). Good luck dress shopping, don’t forget to try something in every shape!

I usually wear a size 16 – alot of the dresses I tried on were a size 16. Mine’s a corset back and happens to fit me pretty well as a size 14. I’m also exactly 5’5″. 

This is pre-alterations and I’ve changed out my jewelry too
