FIT & DETAILS
All the gowns in David's Bridal Petite wedding dress collection are designed with amazing attention to quality, fit and detail.
The combination of shorter skirt and bodice means that everything is positioned exactly where it should be for an overall better fit. When the waist hits just right, you'll be amazed how it creates a tailored, flattering look.
Neckline and bodice details are designed with a smooth fit to complement your petite figure. Necklines, shoulder width, and arm openings are proportioned to reduce folds and gaping.
Our patterns are scaled to maintain the original design integrity. Skirt and train embellishments are adjusted and perfectly placed for just the right proportions.
When everything falls into place so well, you will not only look and feel beautiful but you'll be comfortable and confident on your special day.
As the experts in bridal gowns customized for every body, our designers have identified a fabulous selection of gowns that look and fit especially great on petite brides! Petite wedding dresses are available to order at any David's Bridal location and select styles are available to purchase online.
Q: How do I know if I'm Petite?
A: Quite simply, Petite sizing is based on height and proportion. If you are 5'4" or under, it is likely you will enjoy the benefits of our Petite bridal gowns. Other indicators are loose overall proportions and bodice fit issues such as gaping or buckling at the neckline or underarm area. A petite fit will be especially important if you have chosen a strapless gown.
Q: Could I just buy a Misses gown and have it shortened?
A: As outlined above, the gowns in our Petite bridal collection offer so much more than just a shorter skirt length, however every David's Bridal location offers expert alterations, so if you fall in love with one of our gowns that is not available in Petite, this is certainly an option.
Q: Which slips and bras should I wear with my Petite wedding dress?
A: Our expert consultants will let you know the undergarments that pair with the style you have chosen. Almost all our bras, slips and shape wear work well under David's Bridal Petite bridal gowns.
