Petite Girls Like To Look Good Too!

Hi everyone! I’m a five foot tall twenty-two-year-old who has an absolute nightmare
finding clothes to fit my frame! Personally, if you’re ‘under five foot three’ in height, then I think
you’re a little hard done by (like me). Not only do you need Skyscraper heels
to reach peoples shoulders, but finding trousers that aren’t too long and
dresses that don’t trail for miles behind you is a pretty near impossible feat
sometimes. Designers don’t seem to bother with Petite ranges, there are ‘Plus
Size’ models but there really aren’t ‘Petite’ ones and on the whole, I think
Petite girls are pretty neglected in the fashion stakes.

So how do we get around this? Well, we have to take an extra
god-knows-how-long amount of time to shop and dig out garments that won’t drown
us or make us look like we’re wearing tents. This in mind, I’m going
to use this blog to document my fashion triumphs and struggles, my hunt for Petite items
that fit and any especially exciting new developments in the Petite fashion
world! Oh, and the occasional ‘Petite Style’ grumble! Happy reading!

    I totally agree with your comments. I too can't wear some petite clothes as I'm not very petite on some parts of my body.

    E.g. Chunky calves on short legs = a skinny jean disaster, petite or normal sized. I struggle to get them over my calves!

    I shop a lot in petite friendly stores. E.g. Thigh high skirt and dresses = great for petites.
