I had no problems! The only style that didn’t look great was ballgowns, as they sort of “swallowed” my figure. I ended up with a trumpet style dress and I love it!!

It was kind of hard. I thought I’d look great in everything, and almost everything looked awful on me. : I ended up with a soft chiffon a-line/sheath:

Soft silk sheath.  Anything else overpowered my tiny frame.

Full A-line. Although I’m taking out a layer of crinoline so it won’t be as poofy
