Jackets That Run Small: Nanette Lepore

Nanette Lepore Chocolate Stretch “Symphony Stripe” Jacket, bluefly.com

Nanette Lepore designs fun and girly pieces with unique details, and luckily, her jackets are cut small! I picked up this beauty from bluefly.com in a size 0, and am really happy with it. Nanette Lepore jackets are cut slim in the bust and torso, and are often cut in a shrunken length, with a little flair at the bottom that works to accentuate a tiny waist. I’ve also tried on a few other jacket styles in department stores, and have been happy to see most designs are flatteringly tiny.
I had to get the sleeves hemmed on this jacket, which is an easy alteration and not costly. Also, some jackets are cut smaller than others, so try them all on!

Unfortunately, not everything from this designer works. Her bottoms are generally cut pretty large, and I can never find size 0’s in tops or dresses to try on, so I am unsure about the fit of the rest of her line at this time.
