A petite dress is tailored for small-framed women. For petite women, finding their “made just for you” wedding dress is a massive task to fill. Most designers designed their dresses for general sizes and petite women have to make a lot of alterations so they could fit in the dress. With that said, you don’t want to have the same feeling when you are looking for your most important dress.
For petite brides, you don’t have to suffer the agony of dragging the heavy fabric on the way to the altar. Short dresses are perfect for your figure and it shows your svelte silhouette.
So what looks good in petite women? Here are some dress styles to consider so that you’ll end up with a wedding dress that will show the best in you instead of drowning you in fabric:
