    I’m 5’0 tall.. I had a beautiful ball gown but the seamstress said she would have to take the entire bottom off and reconstruct the dress to fit me and I would loose some beadwork and design so I decided to go with this baby I’m going to accessories this too death lol

    nycoleman:  I am 5’2″ and I ended up with a mermaid style.  It’s all about what you feel beautiful in! I wore 4.5 inch heels, and the dress had to be shortened quite a bit, but I didn’t think it took away from the dress at all.

    All along I wanted a simple matte satin dress with pockets. I ended up with a tea length dress. I do love vintage style but it really wasnt what I wanted. 

    Eventually I found THE DRESS & it has POCKETS!! I was able to trade & pay the difference thank goodness.

    Im 5ft & 90lbs. 

    This is the dress. This is NOT me but a random review photo from site. I dont have a photo of me in the dress (first fitting next Wednesday… YEAH) but this girl is tiny like I am.

    Im 5’3 (i say) and I think body shape is much more important than height for the most part. I am very petite but with curvy hips and bottom. My top half is small and narrow and i have small boobs. I looked like I was drowning in a ball gown and I felt like I was playing dress up in an adults dress. Ha!  I ended up with a trumpet and felt this was much more flattering for my body type.

    However this thread clearly shows fellow shorties ROCKING a ball gown. So it really does depend on the individual. A dress will have to be taken up regardless for us shorties, so I say go with whatever dress suits your body shape and personality and that you feel amazing in! Good luck!!

    londonbee123:  Thats true.

    I think it also depends of the fullness of the ballgown. I ended up with what they called a ballgown but its not so full more A line without a ballgown slip. If I added the slip it would have been overwelming… or at least I would have felt that way.

    5’1″ bride here! I wore a lace fit and flare – it happened to look best on my figure but I think it’s your day wear whatever makes you happy!

    nycoleman:  I’m 5’2 and not only am I doing a ballgown , but I”m wearing flat Toms for my wedding to be extra comfy! ( I AM on a pedestal here, it adds about 5 inches but with this type of hem in tulle it will look fairly similar).
