Sometimes, petite women have to work harder to find exceptional evening dresses and wedding gowns that are designed for their smaller proportions. Altering a dress designed for a taller woman may be an option, but it’s always better to find a bridal dress that is cut to fit your body, right from the very start. Luckily, today’s designers are paying attention to the needs of petite women, and creating spectacular gowns that fit their particular body type.
Petite women aren’t necessarily size 0 or size 2 – they are simply smaller in stature, and they need the right cuts and fabrics for their height. To help petite brides-to-be make the most of their beauty as they walk down the aisle, we’ve compiled some perfect wedding dresses designed just for petite brides-to-be. To accessorize these gowns, veils, headpieces, and bridal rings should also be scaled to a tinier body….Princess-Style Gowns Highlight The Delicate Femininity Of Petite Builds…
You don’t need to give up all of the bells and whistles of a luxurious, princess-style wedding gown, simply because you are petite. In fact, the doll-like beauty of a feminine, petite body type can be highlighted by classic, princess-style bridal dresses.
Channel your inner Disney Princess by treating yourself to a gown like the one shown above – fitted tightly through the torso, this design nips in your waist, creating a pleasing and classic Cinderella-inspired silhouette that is so flattering to a petite build. The best petite wedding dresses (like this one) are custom-made to fit properly through the bodice and hips - they will also have the right length for your height.
On your wedding day, you should have a bridal gown that is scaled to your proportions – it will hug you in all the right places, and alterations will be minimal. Treat yourself to a princess-style petite wedding gown, and accessorize with a delicate, glittery headband or headpiece that is also smaller in scale.
