Perfect Wedding Dresses for Petite Figures

A wedding day is the most memorable day for a bride-to-be. So how do  petite women find a wedding dresses?

Choose a wedding dress that does not emphasize your petite frame,  but rather creates an elongated look.  This means avoiding wedding dresses that are at calf length as this visually shortens your legs. Also, the bride should not overdo accessories such as heavy beading and fullness; wedding dresses should not be voluminous or take in a lot of fabric since it overwhelms a petite frame.

Here is our list of the best wedding dress styles  for petite brides:

  • Empire waist –Gowns that gather under the bust help to lengthen a petite frame. The focused waistline particularly near the bust area can also be great for women who have small breasts. And a full skirt is a trick to hide lower body flaws and radiates off a long, slender look for a petite bride.
