I’m 5’0” and wore 2 inch heels. I went with a more simple, fitted dress because I felt like it flattered my figure better than flowier or A-line styles.

I am only 5’ tall so I was super nervous to try on mermaid dresses but knew that was a style I needed to try. I am sooo glad I went for it! I absolutely love my dress

emily20 :  I’m 4’10” as well! Here is my dress! I planned to wear heels but wound up wearing flats since everyone knows how small I am Haha. Do what makes you feel most comfortable and beautiful! I honestly worried so much about looking tiny but didnt wind up worrying about it at all that day.

Talk about true hourglass figure! I think you look amazing and l love the way your husband looks as if he thinks so too.

emily20 :  I’m a similar height to you. Initially I didnt even consider a ballgown because I thought I would be too short to pull one off but ended up trying one on and loving it! 

Pictures of fitted and ball gown on me. Sorry they’re not full length so you cant get the full effect, they’re the only photos I have!
