The Best Wedding Dress Style for Short Girls

When it comes to looking for a wedding dress, there are several things to consider, like your venue, your budget, your style, and your body type. Today’s focus is on the latter: specifically, height. While ultimately you should go with whatever dress style you fall in love with and makes you feel your absolute best, there are few tips to keep in mind when searching for the best wedding dress style for short girls.

To ensure you’re set with a solid idea on the dress silhouette that will look best on your petite frame, we tapped the designer behind the fashion-favorite brand Stone Cold Fox, Cydney Morris, for her expert advice. “For shorter women, a wedding gown with an empire waist will subtly add a few inches to your height. Pick one with a skirt that is slightly flared or flow,” she shared with us.

The beauty of a higher waistline will provide the illusion of a longer silhouette (and as a short girl myself, I’m never mad at the idea of faking a few inches with my figure) as you walk down the aisle to say “I do.” Whether you’re looking for a specific style or new designer to check out on your hunt for the perfect wedding dress, try starting with the beautiful gowns below.
