Close – I’m 5’2 and was about 123-124 when I was dress hunting.

I’m 5’3, and about 132 in this pic. The dress at this point is an 8.

ETA: I’ve had a baby… but she’s 6 now, lol.

That is my body exactly (5’2″, 128 lbs), give or take a couple pounds depending on the day. A snug fit with boning makes a huge difference. Also, my dress doesn’t have a built-in corset, but the ones I tried on that did always gave a nice hourglass shape.

@laurelewrigley  No ballgowns though? I guess they are becoming less and less popular these days.

I didn’t try on any ballgowns because my style is low-key. But also I think short women are often advised to stay away from ballgowns because they might get “swallowed up,” but I’ve definitely seen some petite brides here rock their ballgowns.

Well I’m a lot heavier than 128 (149), but I’m 5’3″ and I’m wearing a ballgown.
