Hello Ladies!
I am having such a hard time finding a dress that fits my body well! I am super short! Like 5 foot short, and I feel like nothing looks good!! Do you guys have any style recommendations!?

    I would think a sheath, loose fit & flare, or A-line would look good. If a ballgown or A-line seems to swallow you up, you can remove a layer of crinoline or more.

    I'm actually 5' as well and always thought I would have a form fitting mermaid style dress. Well, that was an epic fail I looked awful. A line, horrible. I landed on a ballgown with a sweetheart neckline which I actually like.

    Good luck!

    I'm 5'1. Usually sheath, mermaid/fit to flare are good options, but it also depends a lot on your body type. Here's mine. It's a fit and flare mermaidy silhouette. I also have pics of me in ballgowns, ALine, other fit and flare if you want to see. The one I posted is what I ended up with

    I initially bought a poofy A-line but exchanged it for a mermaid. I am 5'1 with a short torso AND I absolutely love being this height. So, looking short isn't an issue for me.

    I’m not worried about looking short, I like being short... I just didn’t want to feel swallowed up in a big dress.
