That line about petites not wearing ball gowns is total bs. one of the favorite ballgowns of the last ten years came from A Cinderella Story, worn by Hilary Duff, who is 5’2″. 

It’s all about proportions and having a dress that hits the right spot in the waist. That said, I’m sure your dress is gorgeous, you should post a pic!

I’m 5’5 but small boned and thin. I knew a ball gown was for me, and anything else I tried was not flattering on me. My ball gown gave me shape, when everything else just made me thinner!

I’m 5’3″ – so taller than you, but still considered short by people taller than me!

I agree with PP about where the waist hits. The top one is my dress and I think the waist is best. The second dress was my runner-up. The third and fourth were pretty but you can tell the waist hits too high and makes me look more overwhelmed/cupcake-y in comparison.

Bored6:  I love your dress! It’s elegantly simple. It’s going to look amazing when it’s altered and you have the right undergarments. Seems like you said simple was you, but if you really want a ballgown feel you might try one on just for kicks:-) 

I am 5’2″ and I’m wearing a ML ballgown. I’ve worn ballgowns previously and I love the look of a petite in a ballgown:-)

Waves508:  Beautiful, romantic dress. You will feel so special on your day.

TwinkleBoss:  You were born to wear that dress.  You may have been a princess in a previous life.
