Review: Banana Republic Logan Fit Pants in Size 00P

…ways too high on me, and the fit in the front is always creased and baggy. Banana Republic recently came out with a few new pant fits, the most intriguing of which was the “Logan”. Advertised as their new “modern fit” with a low rise and straight fit in the leg and thigh, I was eager to give them a shot considering none of the other fits work for me. Here is the “Logan” in size 00P: Banana Republic Logan Fit Pants Holy smokes! What bad fit! Appare…

Petite XXS at Banana Republic!

If it sells well, they very well may introduce it as a size for the rest of their petite clothing items! She also told me the BR petites are selling very very well, which is a positive sign that BR will continue to expand their petite line. Petite Kaleidesco…

In Memoriam: Banana Republic Petite Size 000

…ile 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 o…

Body Proportions and Petiteness: Why Do Some Petites Look More Petite Than Others?

It’s amazing how large a role body proportions have in making some people look taller or shorter than they really are. Case in point…here’s a little story: In college, I became friends with a fellow petite. We were roughly the same height and weight, and quickly bonded over our experiences being so tiny. Because I was a tiny bit shorter than her, I always assumed when people saw us together, I was the one that looked the smallest. However, I was…
