@amyharper:  

I haven’t worn it yet, and don’t even have it fitted. I think once its fitted there shouldn’t be any problems. I do have removeable spaghetti straps that I might use. They help support my chest although my boobs were popping out last time I put it on. I will let you know if I flash anyone lol.

@amyharper:  I highly recommend the dress :o) Plus, for a ballgown it’s really light! That’s all tulle on the skirt, so it gets nice and fluffy without being heavy.

Another note, at 5’4″ in that dress with a small crinoline, I’ll be in flats. No hemming required!

I’m 5’4″ and I love ballgowns. I haven’t found “the” dress yet. I think I might have but I’m afraid to commit. I see these sheath and more slinky gowns and they look so pretty, but when I try them on they don’t scream wedding to me, they don’t really have a wow factor, I don’t know. I’m having a hard time chosing a style. They’re all nice.

I’m getting married at the Disneyland Hotel, riding up in Cinderellas coach, a ballgown fits.

Are ballgowns hard to dance and move in?

I’m 5′ and I really had wanted a ball gown. In the end I went with a full a-line. It’s possible if you find THE dress and the sKurt overwhelms you a little too much they can take some layers of tulle out or you can wear a slimmer crinoline. A very full a-line might look like a big ball gown on you.

I think you can wear a ballgown!  I’m 5″2 and had some ballgowns that were up there, but didn’t go with them.  If you do find them too overwhelming, then there’s also a fuller A-line.

The biggest thing to watch out for is detail on the bottom.  Depending on the heel height you go with you may not be able to order a dress short enough and have to get it hemmed.  If it needs to be hemmed don’t order something with detailing on the bottom!
