Hello fellow bees! I am 5″2 – 120lbs, I chose a ball gown (Allure 8955)  for my dress! I have found that the natural waist gowns work well also! Here is my dress:

twinter91:  heehee my fiancé is 6′ so I also NEED to wear high heels to stand next to him. I may change into my converse after the ceremony though if I’m uncomfortable in the heels.

Engaged in Paris:  Ya I am having a bit of a dilemma regarding the whole thing because our ceremony is outside and I am going to be walking on grass…and I hate wedges. I have those things that go on the heels to help you from sinking in but I dont know how well they are going to work :/ Wish me luck!

I’m 5’3″. I’m wearing flats with my dress, even though my Fiance is a foot taller than me. I knew comfort is very important to me and I’m getting married in my parents back yard – no sinking heels for me!

shutterbug43:  I disagree with a lot of the PPs.  At least on me, the mermaids cut my legs in half and made me look even shorter.  

A-lines are always flattering, or a more fitted style that lands somewhere in between.  That’s what I got.  I didn’t want a mermaid and I wanted a little bit of booty!

I’m just under 5’4″ and 150lbs. I picked Roslin by Sophia Tolli.

Always pictured myself in an A-line dress/ slim A-line with cap sleeves or an illusion neckline made with chiffon and lace fabric. Tried out those dresses and most of them didn’t flatter my figure at all unfortunately since I have no curves, not much at the front and back… : S

I am 5ft tall and picked out something totally opposite of what I originally planned and opposite of what most people say! My dress is still on its way over having ordered it early last month. I ended up picking a strapless ballgown dress with tulle. I was shocked and loved this dress the moment I tried it on instore~ : )

I have literally tried on all styles of dresses in the past month and found that there is no one style that is the best for a specific figure. It really depends on the cut of the dress (e.g. fit and flares flare at slightly different places depending on the designer and it can make a HUGE difference on how the dress looks when on you), depends on the fabric (heavy lace, light lace, heavy beading, silk, chameuse, etc.), depends on your definition of petite (e.g. some ppl only consider height when considering petite, others consider a combination of weight and height).

Go with what makes you feel confident, beautiful, sexy, happy, excited on your wedding day because that’s what will show through in the pictures! [I’ve yet to the dress that makes me feel that way ๐Ÿ˜‰ and I’ve found a lot of dresses that look good on me – ball gowns, trumpets, sheaths, you name it!]

i am 4’11 and around 105lbs. Definitely not an easy task to find a dress that would compliment your goods but just be patient ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sure you’ll find your dress. This dress btw is just one of the dress I tried on that a lot of my friends and family actually liked. Still looking for “the dress” though ๐Ÿ˜‰
