Haven’t started trying dresses yet.  Well to be honest, not even engaged yet lol.  But they mad a post like this a few weeks ago.  It was pretty funny, but most of the bees pulled the dresses off better than the [email protected]

Blah! I hate dealing with this, even in regular clothes. I’m pretty much the definition of petite (5′, a 2 or 4 most days.) and things that look wonderful on people who are even 5’6″ or so dwarf me. Cute plaid shirts? No way! No matter how hard I try. 

You know how they have some plus size models (not enough) – well they should have petite models as well. Because things really do look so different and it’d be nice to see how certain wedding dress styles look straight from the designer.

I can buy crops that fit like normal pants! Haha. Express jeans short sizing is the only one that actually fits me fairly well inseam-wise.

The part that I’m going to dread about dress shopping is not being able to “fill out” the dress, if you know what I mean lol

@babyboo – awesome, thanks! I also love AG jeans, but new they’re out of my normal price range. I’ve bought some new via Ebay that I’ve loved.

LOL girl.  Well, I wouldn’t say that I’m that small, but looking at some of the girls that post their dress pics, I’m so envious that they can fill out the top so well.  I’m just curious as to what kind of top I should go with to flatter my figure…or to at least give me some UMFH without having to wear a massive padded bra!

Okay, first time posting me in my dress! I’m 5’3″ and even with heels the dress needs shortening (all 5 layers of it!). It’s a Christos 04015.

Thanks! It’s totally my dream dress and was only affordable because it was used and I am going to resell it.
