The Petite Bride
If you are a petite bride, your body shape can differ so please refer to the other body shapes for more specifics. As for your height, a huge ballgown dress may be too overwhelming for your size. Instead, opt for a mermaid style dress, flowy empire or sheath cut. All three create a silky silhouette that will create the long lines you want without overpowering your small figure.
Our favourite dress for the petite bride comes from Kenneth Pool. This mermaid-style dress is pleated from both sides of the body to create a “V” shape that draws the eyes down and onto the controlled explosion of volume at the knee. The added fabric sweeps daintily to the floor for extra drama.
