Petite Brides: Wedding Dresses to Choose

If you are looking for petite wedding dress and can not find THE ONE, you are at the right place!

Shopping for petite wedding dresses is not an easy task. In general, many bridal stores have sample sizes which are often far too large and long to begin with. Thus, they can easily overwhelm your petite body rather than highlight your best assets. They can also divert your attention from choosing the right silhouette to suit your frame. So here is a simple guide to help you along your journey of choosing a flattering petite wedding gown.


When it comes to petite wedding dresses the following designs will work the best.


  • A-line gowns are extremely flattering on a petite bride. It cinches in at the waist and adds soft volume as it drapes gracefully over the hips and falls into a flowy and relaxed skirt. 
  • Mermaid and trumpet styles are hip hugging silhouettes with a flared bottom. They perfectly suit to petite brides with fuller hips. Most important, not only does it accentuate the curves, but the low- cut skirt also creates the illusion of a long and lean stature, therefore, making petite brides look taller. 


  • Avoid styles like ball gown which will only shorten your figure.

  • Petite brides with a smaller chest can pull of plunging v-necklines and open back necklines as they draw attention to your upper frame and help elongate the torso, making you appear taller.
  • A sweetheart neckline is delicate and adds just the right amount of romance for brides who prefer simplicity.
  • An off-the-shoulder cut works wonders on busty brides.
  • If more coverage is needed, an illusion bateau neckline is just as flattering and provides extra support with the straps sitting on the shoulders.

A Slit Wedding Dress or Empire Waist Wedding Dress are the best options if you want to look taller and leaner.
