If you've been following along with me the past few months as I've been reviewing dresses for Karina Dresses, then you know that I have slowly become a huge Karina Dresses addict. My review dress for this month, the Karina Dresses Gala Wrap, was so pretty and comfy, but honestly, I ran into a bit of an issue. A short-girl issue...
Here's the thing: I AM SHORT. I thought I'd take a chance and order the Gala Wrap, which is a one size fits all dress. I have been so happy with all of my other dresses, I figured, "why not?" As soon as I put it on, I knew I made a mistake. Of course it's gorgeous and it feels so soft and comfy against my skin...but it's really long on me! It literally almost reaches my ankles.
Okay, that's an exaggeration. I am just really not one for long dresses. Hey, my legs are one of my best assets, I learned a long time ago that I feel more confident showing them off!
After my work schedule settles down in January, I am going to dig out my sewing machine and hem about six inches off the bottom of the dress. The Karina Dresses Gala Wrap fits my torso and hugs my curves so nicely, I really have to find a way to make it work!
Even Toby thinks I should keep it!
The Karina Dresses Gala Wrap is just one of many gorgeous options available, and because Karina Dresses are designed to compliment certain body types, you can never go wrong! By following the body guide, you'll always know that you're buying a Karina Dresses dress that will make you look fantastic!
Just keep in mind...if you're on the shorter side, you might want to stay away from the one size fits all dresses, unless you like a long dress.

Thank you so much for your helpful review! I'm also short (only 4' 11") and shopping for clothes can be a real pain sometimes. So it's nice to get an opinion on this dress from a fellow short person. 🙂 Although personally, I think the dress looks adorable on you. (also I'm super jealous of your hair!)
