    I am a wedding dress newbie! I'm going dress shopping for the first time on Wednesday! I wondered if anyone can suggest designers which are particularly good at fitting petite body types? I'm average height, but have a small bust, small waist, small hips, small shoulders... I've heard some designers are "known" for certain body types, so I was just wondering what designer I should ask to try on and find styles for for this Wednesday. Thanks ladies!! Your advice would greatly help!!

    I agree, don't limit yourself to a designer. I had no idea what was going to look good on me, I'm petite as well so didn't even think I'd be able to pull of a full length gown. I would suggest going in with an open mind, and try on a dress in each silhouette, you'll know immediately what you feel best in. Having a few things you want (mine were white, no satin, sweetheart neckline, and a little bling) will help the ladies at the store pull dresses with features you want. Taking a few pictures of dresses you are drawn to will also help. Good luck, and enjoy the experience!

    Your dress is absolutely gorgeous!! I'm definitely inspired by it! Thanks for sharing!!

      I had also had a little dress regret especially after seeing all the gorgeous dresses everyone on this site posts!!! And a friend of mine gave me some good advise that helped me alot..... On your wedding day there is only going to be ONE wedding dress in the entire room. You will not have any other dresses around to compare it to and when you are all dolled up with your hair and make up done, you are going to look fabulous in whatever dress you picked for your perfect day 

      I'm also having dress regret but I think its pretty common and there's no way I'm spending any more money on a dress lol so I'm just gonna have to suck it up.  But I do think that once I have it altered and i'm all dolled up it'll be great.  I think you look gorgeous in the dress you got.  Especially if it makes you feel sexy and bridal then that's prefect!

Bought the dress on the spot and took it home with me. I posted it several pages ago.. But over the weekend my FI's step-mom and dad wanted to see my dress, so I showed them a picture.. I think they said it was pretty, but I can't even remember, all I can remember is they asked why I didn't go with the Allure 8862 when I showed them the pictures of both.

       

      I have the dress at home so I'm wondering if trying it on for my mom and my bridesmaids will make me feel better.. but I'm so torn now and feel like I may have made the wrong decision. :o(

          Hey Jennyadele!!! I am also on the small side... 5'3 about a size 4 i have really narrow shoulders and a smallish waist just not a small bust or hips.. but i went with a maggie sottero as well. I have yet to actually try my dress on.. i just ordered it. But of all the maggies i tried on they fit very well!!!!

           

          And on another note... i think we may be ring twins!

I have seen a few girls in the Allure, and I'm a unique one of a kind girl.. So I'm actually happy that the dress I bought I have never seen on anyone or anywhere else.. I still may go try on the Allure again to see how it makes me feel and how I look in it. Every time I see MssBliss in the Allure I feel a tugg on my regret string..

               

              ^^^Geeze thanks Jenny.. lol.. she does look amazing though.
