You all look fabulous in those dresses! I found that the really poofy/full skirts were too much my height and shape and some of the same issues some of you all ran into. Just found my dress yesterday after trying a bunch of different styles. So if u see the same pics on other posts sorry 🙂 I’m 5’1″ plus a hair or two. I claim 5’2″ bc I believe in rounding up lol. I definitely have some wide hips compared to the rest of me. Size 4 or 6 on top/waist and about an 8 on the bottom. i will definitely be wearing the highest heels I can stand. first pic is on a pedestal a little tippy toed and second one isn’t. It definitely helps to have a little extra height to balance everything out!

5’2″ it looks like i have some curves in this dress.. but I really dont lol what worked for me was a slight trumpet..not full or else u look SHORT /a-line.  avoid princess/ballgown which ate me up and made me look a lot fatter.

@ifheaven:  I have a crinoline!  I couldn’t find the exact organza, mermaid dress, so I actually had this custom-made for $150! 🙂  Direct message me if you want more details about this route.
