There are many things to think about when looking for the ideal wedding dress. Since each woman has a different figure and style, their dress search should be filtered depending on what feels best according to their body type. Length, in particular, is a concern for many brides. The average height of a model is 5’11”, whereas the average height of women in the U.S. is 5’3”. So in fact, most of the female population is ‘petite’. With this in mind, we have picked some exquisite 2017 wedding dresses to suit shorter heights; perfect for petite brides-to-be!

The first thing to keep in mind when choosing a dress design is to decide which styles you should stay clear of. If you consider yourself to be a petite size, then it’s often better to wear a simple dress and save the details or embellishments for the accessories or hairstyle. Wearing a dress with a loud design can visually shorten the bride. Another flattering dress style for petites is the mermaid style dress, also known as the trumpet skirt. This slim-fitting dress flairs out at the knee drawing attention to the beginning of the dress down to the hem. Lastly, V-neck dresses also play in favor for petite brides. A slim fitting dress with a modest, low-cut neckline will elude an elongated figure. Zankyou’s advice for petite brides is that they should avoid large, voluminous designs that may cause the bride to get “lost” in her gown.

We hope our advice and dress selections helps you choose one of the most important dresses of your lifetime. Discover our top 40 petite wedding dresses out there for 2017, and find the dress perfectly suited to you!
