Hi Glam Gal,
I am 69, petite, currently wearing a size 2. My grandchild is getting married this Summer.The wedding will be in a church with a reception later in the day. I just purchased this eggplant ruched dress and I would appreciate your honesty about whether it works.
Yes, I love the X-scape beaded ruched dress from Nordstrom and think it will look beautiful on you since you’re Petite. ( left click on dress to see enlarged version)
Normally I would not recommend a dress with a lot of rushing because it can make anyone over a size 4 appear heavier than they really are in photos. I suggest you take a photo of yourself in the dress and see if you like the way you appear. This is key because things don’t always look the same in a photo as they look in person.
Below are some other dresses I found that I like for any of you other ladies out there who might be going to a wedding and are not sure what to wear.
