ut0pia :  it seems like you’re wanting flare in an odd spot – from the back, it would equate to mid-butt. Dresses either flare above or under the butt (so hip – which would be a modified a line – or mid-thigh – which would be either a fit and flare or a trumpet, depending on how dramatic the flare is. A “soft” flare would be a trumpet). Both these cuts are very popular and easy to find…not sure the trouble you’re having, unless you’re looking for a mid-butt flare, which you won’t find because that would be really strange looking from behind.

Maybe a drop waist ball gown?

David Tutera’s “Sanya” comes to mind, but I think it’s been discontinued now so you might have trouble finding it!

Here’s a couple preowned ones, but I think you’d need a big petticoat to get it to flare out like the model’s picture 🙂

ut0pia :  well the dress you posted a pic of isn’t a trumpet, it’s a mermaid (: 5’5″ isn’t actually that short – but i agree that mermaids (which are characterized by a dramatic flare just above or below the knee) don’t look good on most people, unless you happen to be really really tall.

are you in the US? allure and maggie sottero both have modified a-line, fit and flare (a more dramatic flare from the mid thigh), and trumpet gowns. any other chracteristics you’re looking for besides just the silhoutette? that would be useful to the hive in terms of giving you suggestions (:

ETA: you might also want to look into designers who offer their dresses as petites – as petite sizing would change the overall proportions of the skirt and bodice.
