Our favourite thing about Mother of the Bride outfits is that we can always write about them! Year after year we release our seasonal favourites, but this time we’ve looked into petite pieces…
If you’re under 5’3”, you’ll know how hard it is to hunt down a dress or jumpsuit in your proportions. Whether it’s ill-fitting pieces built for taller ladies, or the lack of petite products available, it truly is a battle on the high street! Fortunately, sensational petite ladies, we know how difficult this can be (with a 5’2” lady on our team), so we’ve put together some of our favourite petite shops with a larger MotB offering.
Next’s petite range is made up from a variety of different high street brands like Chi Chi London, Lipsy and Sistaglam, as well as their in-house collection. From figure-flattering skater dresses to lace pieces and stand-out maxi dresses, we think there’s something for everyone in their compact range!
Dorothy Perkins have a comparatively huge selection of petite dresses, as well as their Billie & Blossom range. Some of their dresses are bridesmaid dresses, but teamed with the right accessories and shoes, they work perfectly as a MotB maxi dress.
Wallis are well known for their petite range, and we couldn’t be happier with it! From sheer overlays to waist-cinching belt details, the team behind Wallis know how to design unique yet flattering pieces.
Fenn Wright Manson
As a hallmark of British sensibility, Fenn Wright Manson’s range epitomises timeless design with feminine features. Fortunately, most of their dress styles come in regular and petite fits, so you won’t miss out on their gorgeous designs.
Debenhams have a small but stylish selection of brands for all ages and styles, and we love their Quiz pieces in particular for MotB looks! Alternatively, choose a chic colourful dress and dress it up with smart heels, accessories and jewellery.
