Hey oh. I ordered a gown that will be in soon. But I am so worried it will look stupid on me because I’m short. What kinds of gowns did those of you who are shorter than 5’5″ wear? Pictures…? I am so worried. =(
Here is me in my dress, only standing on a box…

I think it wioll be fine. I am 5’2, and wore a fit n flare gown. I wore 5 inch heels, so I wwas a total of 5’7 the day of.
I had an issue with the belt on my dress not sitting up high enough on my waist. It was too low, making my bottom half look shorter, so I had it raised. That detail made the dress look so much better.

Oh man, I had this problem! I’m 5′ + 1/2″ (it counts i swear)
I wore a fit and flare in the end:

Hi, your dress looks great on you. I wouldn’t worry at all. I am just 5’4 and wearing maggie sottero Divina which is a mermaid. I don’t have pictures of it fitted though.

@peachacid: My heels were (I think) 2.5″ Looking back, I wish I had gone higher (I usually wear much taller), but I really wanted those Kate Spades. 🙂
You’re going to look perfect!

I thought I had some pics of me NOT on a box, but I guess I was wrong. I am 5’3 and I will not be wearing heels. And my dress has some serious poof! Here I am the day my dress came in, so it still needs some alternations.

I’m 5’2″ and wore a big ballgown with 3.5″ heels. Poof is possible for shorter ladies!

you will be fine! I wore and A-Line dress and I’m super short. 5’2″
ETA: my heels were only 3 inches. My husband is pretty short too.

I’m only 5’2″ and am wearing 4″ heels.. so I’ll only be 5’6″ (which I guess is average). I bought an A-line ballgown.. I don’t think it’ll overwhelm me. Here is a picture of me in my dress–not hemmed yet.

Vera Wang fluffy ball gown type thing. My heels were about 5 inches…

I am 5ft! I ordered my Sincerity Bridal 3666 (a satin mermaidish dress) a few weeks ago, and I didn’t get any pics. But it will only look correct on me when altered, so I am nervous about how it’s going to turn out! It looks lovely on the models, I just hope that translates to me. 😛
ETA: I won’t wear high heels, maybe like a kitten or inch heel, so I won’t get much taller.

I’m 5’2 and I wore a flowy chiffon gown that needed to be altered, but it was fine.
