I’m 5-foot-1 / size 2 with short legs and curves. I’ve gone dress shopping today and found a couple that I love!
I love the lace, but I’m worried that it makes me look boxy, especially with a scalloped neckline.
Or Casablanca 1827:
I love this dress, (especially my waist) but I get nervous that the detail around the thigh makes me look short.

You absolutely do not look short in the Casablanca and without the sash it shows off your amazing hour glass figure even more. You look gorgeous!

I voted Karena Royale, it’s so beautiful!
You can always have the neckline altered to a sweetheart! It’s not a big job at all!

They both look beautiful on you. I would find out if the Karena Royale can be made into a sweetheart neckline, I would choose that one if it can. Your waist does look amazing in the Casablanca though 🙂

Thanks for the feedback! As a girl with a bigger bust, I am not used to having multiple dresses that fit me. It makes it a hard decision. I’ll have see what alterations can do to the Karena. Thanks ladies!

You may have already purchased your dress, but there is a dress similar to the kerena royale with a sweetheart neckline called the Lorie (also Maggie Sottero). I am actually choosing between that and the Casablanca 1827, you can see my VERY similar post here:

Both are very beautiful dresses, and it’s good to know I’m not the only one having a hard time choosing between these 2 styles! Good luck!

I actually ended up with Mori Lee 1813 — similar price point, and a great shape!
