thanks everyone for your suggestions…… didn’t mean to take over this post!  there is another dress i love but i think it would have the dreaded “swallowed me up” effect that us petite ladies are trying to avoid (very full fishtail bottom with lots of detail).  i’ll post a new thread when i talk to the seamstress saying what her verdict was on it……

Hi there, I am 5 1 and was told not to go for large dresses as they would swallow you up!  My dress is very simple but am getting a few adjustments like sweetheart neck and some sparkle added to the hip and the bust.

My fiance will be wearing a kilt so the petticoat edge will tie in with that!

 

what do you think?? 😮

I’m barely 5’1″, and I’m going with Maggie Sottero “Demi”. Never thought I’d go fit-and-flare (or mummy as I call it) but I think it suits my short chubby frame. I was suprised. The pillowed hem is sort of hard to alter significanlty so they’re ordering petite length= minus 3 inches. Probably going to wear 3-4″ heels depeding on the shoe’s comfort because my FH is 5’11” Those pics have to look good, you know!

I am 5’3″ AND a street size 14…so that puts me in plus size category. I had to worry about height (even though I LOVE high heels – will wear 4″ heels) and what fit my pear shape. I found a beautiful a-line. I hthnk the key for me was to find a dress with a plain hemline (easy alterations) and the embellishments at the top of the dress.

Sorry, I don’t have a pic.

I’m 5’2 and always wanted something simple and delicate, but found myself not looking bridal enough so I had to go with a different style.

I’m 5’2″ and thought 100% that would wind up in a trumpet/mermaid dress.  But I found that those dresses look absolutely fabulous on curvy girls, not boxy shaped like me.  I found myself drawn to the higher waisted ball gowns, similar to a 1950’s style (remind me of Grace Kelly) and that exactly what i wound up with!  I had my sights sets on an Allure dress but low and behold I went to David’s Bridal and found my dream dress there!  There is only one day that I can sparkle this this and get away with this dress.  🙂
