What type of prom dress for short girl? | Yahoo Answers

My prom is this year, and I'm kind of nervous as far as styles go.
I'm 5'2. I'm not sure if I can wear long dresses, I never have before but I would like to for my prom. I can wear short dresses, they look okay.
What type of long dress would work for a body type with average sized bust (B cup), a little bit fuller hips and thighs (but I'm not big at all, I carry the weight I do have in my hips), and my waist is a little higher than normal.
Empire waist? Sheath? I'm not into princess ballgownness.

a long dress that just touches the floor would make your legs look longer. Empire waist is great. I have that same problem except I'm a C cup and have extremely large hips for my height.
