Choosing Your Wedding Gown – For a Petite Figure

A gown with a subtle silhouette, such as an a-line or a sheath delicately adds length to a petite figure.

An empire waist will also elongate a small frame.

Keep any detailing small and subtle as large decorations will be overwhelming. Depending on the fullness, even long sleeves may be too much. Avoid the bulk of a ball gown or a mermaid silhouette, which are too overpowering for a smaller body type.
