HELP! What type of dresses looks good on petite asians? i have one that I love (Casablanca Couture B045 – first pic) and I think the other is by WTOO? They’re a bit over my budget. Any suggestions on similar dresses that are under $1K.

I’m 4’11” and wore this gown from Bonny.
The dress itself was $750, and I paid the extra $100 to have it made in a custom length.

Personally, I don’t think you should care about what dress fits your “body type.” Just try on a bunch of different ones and you’ll figure out what you like. =) I kinda broke a bunch of rules when I got mine, and I don’t care. I think it’s beautiful.
As for dresses, under 1k, I think you’ll be able to find a lot. =) Alfred Angelo has a lot of dresses you can look at online. You can also try sample sales and off the rack dresses. They say you shouldn’t try on dresses over your budget, but I tried on a beautfiul Maggie Sottero dress and it was double my budget. Long story short, I started scoping out sample sales wherever I could. AFter 3 whole months, I actually managed to score a Maggie Sottero Talese for $530 including alterations and bustle. =) If you find something you like, you just gotta work hard and take the time to look for it. I think you might be able to find it for your budget. =)
Edit: I’m 5 ft 2 in. and this is my dress. http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?style=A3536

My dress is similar to those you posted and it was $900. It’s Mori Lee 4164.

I absolutely love the Casablanca! I’m pretty biased though, since that’s my dress 🙂 It looks really good on you. The great thing about Casablanca is that they’ll custom make the dress to your size and length. They even made mine a sweetheart neckline for very little extra cost.

Have you tried any of the Vera Wang White dresses at David’s Bridal? I’m 5’1, and I tried on all of her dresses the first season she debuted at DB. They’re also all under 1k. There were a few that I really liked, but I only have a picture of myself in one of the dresses.
