I am 5’1” and mermaids looked the best. my body was lost in the other dresses! ignore the sash – i have a blingy one to wear with it! i had both the hem and the skirt lifted at the seam so it looked proportionate.

I’m 5’2 and a plus size but I think I did ok. Sheaths were not my friend being plus size though. 

Here are 9 dresses I tried on. 

 

Which dress if any? (POLL – lots of pics)

I’m 4’11” and loved this. I’ll have to figure out the shoe situation because they had me try it on with heels and I’m getting married on the beach, so I don’t think I’ll want to wear heels.

Not posting pics until after my wedding, but I’m under 5′ and wearing a ball gown!  As long as it’s proportioned correctly, it can work for us shorties.  Try on a variety of shapes – I think a lot of people say that short brides “shouldn’t” wear certain styles, but it all depends on your particular shape and the cut of the dress.
