|Where To Find Petite Bridesmaid Dresses by Jenny Zhu: 4:39am On Jun 15, 2012|
The main challenge with choosing bridesmaid dresses is in finding something that will keep everyone smiling. And the majority of that everyone is the bridesmaids. Your bridesmaid will come in different shapes and sizes, lengths and likes and there is no one size fits all in bridesmaids dresses. The one particular size that you might have a challenge with is the petite bridesmaid dresses department. Unfortunately unlike the plus sized line, there aren't many designers out there focusing on petite bridesmaid dresses. But there is still hope.
Petite silk chiffon Sophia gowns by Jcrew is what you've been waiting for, the gown-length version of our wildly popular Sophia dress. Crafted of floaty silk chiffon with a delicate crinkled texture, it features a fitted crossover bodice with shirring at the shoulders and bust and a flattering wide waistband.
Just because the designers don't specifically make petite bridesmaid dresses, it doesn't mean you'll be lost for choice. Here is a list of other designers who have a line for petite women, which would also look stunning as bridesmaids dresses.
Chadwicks Petite Dresses
For petite bridesmaids you have to choose dresses that will elongate the body. This can be achieved through short skirts preferably knee-length, sheaths and fitted dresses that provide an illusion of length, dropped waist bodices for longer-looking torsos and higher necklines. Just make sure that your petite bridesmaid does not come dressed in floor-length dresses as she will surely look like a small child playing pretend party. Keep the dress short and you will make her look tall. And high heels do help! Our top choices, Single-Shoulder Dress, Shape Benefits Cross-Waist Dress and Scarlet Ruched Dress.
Talbots Petite Dresses
Petite ladies should avoid dresses with enormous ruffles and wide belts - you'll disappear from sight. Instead opt for simple lines and dresses that show more of your legs and arms and cleavage. Our choices in the Talbots line are the Cotton/silk faille dress with a soft, lustrous swing. The Eyelet sheath gives dramatic silhouette, ultra-luxe texture and effortless sophistication. The Embroidered dress is inspired by opulent old world architecture, and its bright continental charm.
Travelsmith Petite Dresses
Many people assume a petite women is 5'4" and under with a small frame. This is not so. Yes, a petite woman usually ranges from 4'11" to 5'4" in height, but we have many different body shapes.

The breezy chiffon skirt and flattering knit twist-knot bodice of this dress minimize hips and draw the eye upward. Women's Reversible Tank Dress is twice the style, half the price.
