I felt the same wayyy!!!!  I’m 5’1 (on a good day) and I thought I wanted this BAM fit n flare/mermaid style, but I felt swallowed by them. Not too mention I felt like I kept seeing the same thing over and over.  I only put on a handful of sheaths but my mother kept calling them “promy” which kinda ruined it.  The last sheath however, was very different.  I walked away from the apointment and came back an hour later to buy it.  I can’t wait to get it in MY size, sample was a little big.

 

Here’s the front:

 

and the back on me:

I am 4’9″ (but 5’1″ with my heels Wink). I will be wearing an A-line Casablanca dress (style 2024). I REALLY REALLY wanted to show off my curves in a trumpet or mermaid dress but I felt that those shapes made me look shorter and accentuated my curves way too much (I am well endowed on bottom and on top – hourglass figure).

I am 5’0 3/4″ and I woke an a-line gown and it was so beautiful.  I wore 2 1/2 inch heals with it but took them off after the ceremony.

I’m 5″ too w/ a very boyish shape. I had to wear 3 1/2″ heels and one of those bras from Victoria’s Secrets that makes your chest 2 cup sizes bigger. Normally I don’t try to fake it, but I just didn’t look right in this dress without a little “enhancement”. hehe

I don’t have a pic of me in my dress yet… 3 more months til it comes in!!

I’m 5′ and kinda pear shaped. I’m wearing 3 1/2 inch heels to boost me up to 5’3 1/2″ … I’ll still be short, but it’s better than 5′!!

I’m almost 5’1, with some curves (bigger up top but small hips), and I originally thought I wanted a big, princess-style dress, but when I tried them on, I felt like the dress was wearing me more than I was wearing it.  I ended up with a mermaid style, with sweetheart neckline and an embellished belt.  My veil went just below my shoulders.

I’m 5’0″ and a street size 0 – 1. I have an a-line dress that wasn’t too much dress (although I know what you mean, some of them feel HUGE). Also, the dress is clearly too long in this pic and has since been shortened.
