  • What wedding dress would flatter my figure??

    I am the exact definition of petite lol.
    I am 5'0. Just below 90 lbs. My cup size is about a B. Flat tummy. I have a decent back side for my figure.
    I am well aware there is no way I can pull of a ball gown. lol I had to wear a short dress to prom. I just think I'd look weird in a longer dress being so small, so I need to figure out what would make me look good and womanly. I really wanna feel like a woman. I'm still stuck in that 'little girl phase'. Not because my maturity level, but because of my body image.

    I'm attempting to upload a pic of myself so you can see my body shape more.

    I was a big fan of the mermaid style dresses. Now I'm definitely looking at something a little less intense. Any advice?

    Thanks
    xx

  • I think you would be able to wear a ball gown wedding dress, but you have to get it made for a petite person. Maybe at a place that caters to Southeast Asians such as Thai, Laotian, Cambodian, Filipino or Vietnamese. I say this because women from those countries are more likely to be petite. I also know that western style white wedding dress are becoming more popular in Thailand and Laos and I suspect the same is true in Laos and Vietnam. I think they have been popular a long time in the Philippines.

    • ASH,
      I also live in Washington ( State ), Every Major City, from Chehalis to Bellingham, Up the I-5 corridor have a Davids Bridal, also Tri Cities , Whenachee, Yakima, Spokane on the East Side of the State has them .
      Try Googling Davids Bridal and put Petite Brides in the Google Search. Davids has 7 pages of Gowns & they have Bridesmaid's gowns, just for Petites. That No way can someone mistake you for a " Lil Girl " .. lol

        • You have a thin figure and I think a mermaid type would look nice! Or an A-line, which is kinda like the mermaid but isn't form fitting around the butt. That's what I got and I think it's very flattering.

                        No Ash, too much information .............................

                        Do you like funky vintage? If so I'll direct you to a website I am looking it, so pretty and petite although I am 5 foot 8, I can get away with those dresses too especially being my second wedding.

                        • Buddhaboy, you are funny lol


                          I was really into the funky mermaid styles. Now I am looking at more romantic styles. I am really into lace at the moment,

                          CW- Have you found a dress yet?
                          When my mom got married the 2nd time, she wore a flannel jacket and jeans. She called me on the phone the next day and was like "Soooo I got married yesterday." I was like are you kidding?

                            • Okay

                              Gold would be amazing. I don't think I could do that for the dress, but I was definitely thinking about a gold theme.
