Ballgown will overwhelm you more than anything. Here’s my aline skirt but it is a slight drop waist (on my frame it goes down a bit further) Also, I have a mermaid crinoline but I am going to wear a hybrid between mermaid and aline so I don’t have a lot of extra fabric in my hips area.

I can’t post a picture of myself in my dress (mainly because they’re ugly at the salon and I’m scared my fiancé might stumble across them) BUT I’m 5’3” and petite just like you and that’s the silhouette I chose. The mermaid/trumpet style were nice but the A-line is so classic and pretty – not overwhelming at all! Maybe you could go try on dresses just to get a feel of the type of silhouette you like?

@jdhall89:  you will look fanastic in your dress! I just went back and looked at it and it would look great with the a-line skirt. Is there just a bunch of crinoline underneath that makes it poofy? If so, that a really simple fix. I think it will turn out great!

@jdhall89:  Well, I suggest taking out the crinoline and consulting a seamstress. They should be able to fix the “poof” and make it into your dream dress!
