Every girl’s body is a little different and no dress is going to look the same on two different girls. Finding the perfect prom dress is largely dependent on what kind of body type you have. Prom Dress Shop wants to help you find the perfect 2013 prom dress for your body type. Here are some great tips and tricks for buying your perfect prom dress if you are petite. Petite isn’t a body type as much as it’s a height. Women who are under 5’4” in height are considered petite. If you are considered petite think about wearing a short prom dress that hits above the knee. Short prom dresses are going to show off more skin and legs and will make you look longer.

This short prom dress by La Femme is a great option for a petite girl. Featuring a sweetheart neckline with ruched crisscross bodice, this short prom dress shows off a ton of skin. The crisscrossed ruching and high empire waist make a girl’s body appear taller. The light poly chiffon skirt floats away from the body in a slight A-line shape.  Pair this dress with sky high silver heels and amazing silver earrings for a great look for a petite shape.

If you really want a long dress and are petite sized make sure to stay away from ball gowns and mermaid prom dresses.  Ball gowns feature a ton of fabric and are just going to make a petite girl looked weighed down and a shorter. Similarly mermaid prom dresses hug the body and the large flared skirt is just going to overwhelm a petite girl. Instead of ball gowns and mermaid styles, try a straight long prom dresses in a single color.
