Hi fellow bees,
So I’m 5’1 and quite tiny (31-25-36 proportions) and I fell in love with this dress from sincerity bridal (style 3667).
Fiance happened to see the dress and mentioned it might not look good on petites 🙁 He thinks it looks good on the model because she’s tall. I think the cut is flattering but I’ve started to doubt myself and opinions would be much appreciated. I’m all the way in Africa so I’d have to order this withoBiosut trying it on.
Also I’m having the dress custom made but still worried about it fitting my bust properly. Do you think a corset or strapless bra with fillers (I’m thinking of getting the set from David’s bridal) would work and prevent any gaping and falling?
Pls Pls HELP!

I think it would be fine, it’s a beautiful dress. I have a feeling the model is standing on something in the photo, but maybe not. Either way, the dress can be altered to your height and still be gorgeous.

That model is definitely standing on something. I think that dress will look great on you!

I think the model is standing on something or else the angle of the camera is making her look insanely tall! I think it will still look pretty on you! Sometimes they look way better in person than on the models (I personally hate my dress on the model). And as for your size that’s what alterations are for. They will tailor it to fit you and I don’t think that dress would be overwhelming for your size. I’ve seen dresses a lot bigger and fluffier!
