  • You sound like you'd be a drop dead gorgeous prom date in whatever dress you wear. I hope you find one that you like.

  • You can wear a long dress and still look good! Especially if you're wearing y'all heels. Since you're curvy side cut outs would look great and really flatter your figure.

    I'm 5' 4 & I believe my measurements are 34-26- & I'm not really sure... Maybe like 34-37. I have wider legs than my actual hips so it depends on how/where you measure & this is my dress for prom, ignore my socks & how long it is (the heels I have make it the perfect length) and also my face 😂

    • Damn. You look great!

    • Sounds cute, I love black dresses 💕

    • Me too! It was the last dress I tried on too

  • You're going to want a short dress. A floor length dress will just make you look shorter. It's nearly impossible to get a good strapless bra over a 34C, so I would suggest something with straps. If you have to do the Kim Kardashian taping thing, so be it.

    • I can walk really good in heels so I'll probably get like 5-6 inch. My last dress was strapless and I didn't wear a bra. So you think a short dress would look good?

    • Petite just means short with a short torso and short legs.

    • Oh. I thought it meant short and thin.

  • Basically anything form-fitting will be flattering. A friend of mine wore a mermaid dress for prom and she loved it and she is short like you. if you go with a mermaid style dress make sure to get one with a train it will make you look taller.

    If you want to look shorter get one that flares

  • Something like this, form fitting and short.

    Form fitting to show off your figure and short to don't make you look shorter. ^·^

  • I guess going braless isn't an option and as another poster suggested strapless bras aren't good for larger busts. Maybe something tight and slightly above the knee? U have a small waist so should emphasise that.

  • wearing an asymmetrical hemline that can make you appear taller. Floor length gowns and full skirts tend to overwhelm your frame. Opt for slim fitting dresses with a V-neckline, vertical prints or pleating since these will elongate your silhouette.
