The Best Herve Leger Dresses for Petite Ladies

By Bebefuzz

Many girls frequently tell me that they can't pull off Herve Leger as designer clothing is modeled for tall models. Surprisingly enough, certain Herve Leger dresses seem to be made with short gals in mind. If you're petite, you just might find that Herve is your body's best friend. We'll go over some of the top features to look for in Herve Leger dresses for petite frames.

Body con dresses don't overwhelm small frames. Instead, they accentuate and highlight features. The below dresses are perfect for shorter heights.

Vertical Lines / Front Zip

Vertical lines are great at making the body look long and lean. Look for dresses with a front zip or some vertical trim like the ones above. Here are some current styles that have this feature: here, and here.

V Neck

V necklines are universally flattering for all heights as they bring attention to your face and lengthen the top half of your body. Inverted v hemlines as seen on the white dress above can also make legs look longer.

Underbust Trim

Raise the bustline and lengthen the lower half of your body by choosing dresses that have a line across or right underneath the bust. For another example, check here.

Short Hemlines

Don't go past the knees when looking at hemlines. Women tend to look taller when more leg is shown.

Stick to Dresses with only One Color or a Simple Colorblock

As you can see most of the dresses that we chose above are either a solid color or have no busy pattern. Simple patterns or solid colors are more flattering.

Many Herve Leger dresses are extremely flattering to petite frames. In fact, I would say that more than half of them are! So, it's a total shame if you haven't tried one yet because of this unfounded fear!

If this hasn't convinced you that Herve Leger is wonderful for shorter heights, take a look at these beautiful celebrities who are all 5 foot 2 and under!
