I’m 5’ 0” I wore 4 in heels in this picture

In this one I had taken them off:

Some designers will let you order a custom length or a petite length. Ask about it when you go dress shopping. I actually didn’t have this dress altered at all besides added a bustle.

I’m 5’3″ and was wearing about 1/2 inch kitten heels. My seamstress was able to hem from the waist so I wouldn’t lose any detailing on the bottom of the skirt and it worked out perfectly. I was afraid I wouldn’t like the ball-gown skirt being short but I couldn’t see myself in any other gown once I tried this one. I say try on the ones you like and you will be surprised that the right dress will definitely come your way. Good luck!

This was the unaltered dress on the day I picked it up from the store. I’m standing on a pedestal.

I don’t know much about dressmaking – but as a general note, dresses tend to be taken up at the waist seam (if there is one) so the whole skirt is lifted up – rather than the bottom (whereby you would lose some of the bottom hem lace detail)

so don’t let that put you off too much..

I am also your height, and I also felt the same way when I started shopping for my dress. I don’t have photos of the wedding dress that I bought but I have pictures of dresses that looked good on me whie trying out wedding gowns. I hope they help you with your search.

4’11, not sure how high my shoes were but I definitely had flats on most of the night (and ran around holding my dress up all night because everyone kept stepping on my bustle lmao)

5’2 here! The top two picture are the store sample. The bottom two are after my second fitting yesterday. I am wearing flats. The sample was an 8 and the dress was ordered in a 0, so you can see how that alters the fit as well. I was hesitant to try on a ballgown type dress because I thought it would swallow me, but it turned out to be the silouhette that worked best.
