@Willow1991:  I am similar shape like you. 5’2″ and 100lbs, slender and smallchested. I skipped over all ball gowns when I was searching online and just thought i’d try one for the heck of it. And compared to the other tight fitting body mermaid/trumpet ones, the ball gown was really flattering for me. I felt super comfy in it and my mom said it didn’t overwhlem me. My consultant said as long as the proportions are right, then it wouldn’t eat me up.

Did you end up getting this dress? Who is the designer??


You look lovely! Like a princess!

@bump:  Yup, I bought the dress the day I tried it on. It is a Mori Lee but that dress was just discontinued. I actually ordered the dress an entire year ago lol. I am one of those brides who is months ahead of schedule.

Beautiful choices everyone!  I’m a little under 5’3″ and have a hard time tolerating high heels.  I really appreciated that Mori Lee offers their dresses in three different lengths at no extra cost.  I ordered the shortest one, and it’s perfect for me with 2 1/2″ heels.

I”m 5’0 but will be wearing 5inch heels on my big day. =)  I’m always in heels at least 3 inches everyday so it’s not an uncommon thing.

My dress is a drop waist A-line (satin and tulle).  I may modify it to a fit n flare.
