When I first saw Meliss’ post, I thought, “Yay, girls with hips like me!!!” Then I realized it was “vertically challenged” and my heart sank when I saw all these petite girls looking absolutely gorgeous in their dresses!
I’m also doning a trumpet dress on the big day, and while I don’t consider myself vertically challenged at 5’7″, I do have…hmmm…shall we say…some junk in the trunk? LOL
No pics yet (fitting isn’t until June!) but if there are any other Bees out there with some pics that’ll make me feel not-so-alone, that’d be great!

I have big hip and big booty! I <3 my trumpet dress! I think it’s actually a great style for those of us with some junk in the trunk. 😉

You girls are funny!!! I wouldn’t call that horizontally challenged, I would call it curvaceous. I think trumpet dresses are meant to be worn with curves and they look fantastic on voluptuous ladies.There was a “mermaid dresses on curvy girls” thread few weeks back and everyone looked awesome in their photos! BrooklynBride is a great example, I love her in that dress.
Actually my theory is that any dress would work on any bride, if it’s just tailored just right to the person’s body. My frustration was that you can custom order for size but not for height. Even when you pay extra for hollow-to-hem they only shorten the skirt, not the torso. How can a 5′ tall girl have the same torso length as one that’s 5’9″ even if they both wear a size 6, it’s silly! For curvier ladies, I’d just make sure to get the right size so it doesn’t look too small on the wide areas and create any bulges. Also for the smaller busted girls, always helps to pad out the top to create a balanced, hour-glass figure.

I have a trumpet dress! Unfortunately, I suffer from noassatall, but I do have some hips for birthin’ babies! Here’s a pic of me in my trumpet gown:

MrsDeetoBee: I don’t think that is a trumpet dress. I’m pretty sure I have the same dress as you, and mine is definitely not a trumpet. Am I confused about what trumpet means?
I thought that dress was an A-line…
