I reported a while back on size petite 000 showing up on the Banana Republic Fit Guide on bananarepublic.com, as did Cynthia over at Shorty Stories, but never saw any size 000 materialize on the website (I was checking religiously). I had my fingers crossed because Banana Republic has great work separates and suiting, and the idea of tiny dress pants had me VERY excited.
For the record, Banana Republic size 00 petite is still a bit big on me, especially in any other fit besides the Ryan (which is mysteriously not being offered very often any more…hhmmm…Banana, are you listening?)
Well, I called Banana Republic customer service to find out what was going on. Brace yourselves for bad news ladies…the 000 has been discontinued.
I didn’t even know it was ever available! Apparently it was offered in very small numbers and sent to a couple of stores. Banana Republic decided the size was not the direction it wanted to take, and had the stores send back their 000 merchandise to have the material used for other products. I am so sad right now.
I left feedback with the great customer service representative to bring back the petite 000! If you’d like to see this size, I suggest you do the same. Strength in numbers ladies!
