In Memoriam: Saks Fifth Avenue Petite Department

…ir petite departments back in 2006. This article from the New York Times summed the situation up quite nicely.  High end department stores did not see brisk sales in their petite departments due to what most petite women will tell you is the main problem with petite clothing…it’s frumpy and ugly! The reasoning for the department cuts was this: Executives at the three department stores said the decision was based on the poor sales of petite sizes,…

Petite Fit Guide: Improper Fit of Regular Size Jeans on a Petite Woman

…y, however, when I pointed out to them how my regular size jeans (that I hemmed to wear with heels) are improperly proportioned for my petite size, they both looked at their own jeans and were surprised to find the same thing happening to themselves! I’m very guilty of this improper fit offense, because I’ve yet to find a fit in petite jeans that I like better than the fit of my regular size Paige Premium Denim, so I deal with this, but it still b…

Why Must They Put Petite Jeans on Tall Models?

…oots that means less sales would get offered and at the end of the day our members are looking for those sales to happen.  So we compromise, jeans look cropped on the standard size model BUT we have more fabulous sales on the site!!  Thank you for the response Gilt Groupe! I still wish petite models could be used to model petite clothing, because ultimately, I want to see how the garment will look on short little me, not cropped and awkward on a t…

Q&A: Petite Stylist – Trina Gupta

…stores or brands to shop for your petite clients? There are the obvious common ones, like Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, and Ann Taylor LOFT. Some other ones I really like that are perhaps a little less commonly frequented are French Connection, Theory and Mackage. The dress I’m wearing right now is actually French Connection and where normally I wear a 0, this is a 2 and fits me perfectly. These brands run smaller all around, not just in the lengt…

Fit Review Friday – J.Crew Fall Arrivals in Size Petite 000 & XXXS

…, but still feels proportional to a petite frame. I picked up this blazer immediately when I saw it was being offered in new size petite 000 for two reasons. I’m always looking for small-fitting blazers, especially if the shoulders seem like they’ll be nice and narrow (I have narrow shoulders on top of being petite, so they are always a problem area for me), so I HAD to try this new size for it’s super petite potential. Also, I’ve been looking for…

Review: Gap 1969 Jeans in Size Petite 00

…aggy in the front, all the way down the thigh and leg, I likened these to “mom jeans”. Yuck! Next, the Always Skinny Jean in Saturated Dark Wash: Jeans: Gap Always Skinny, size Petite 00 These skinny jeans were not very skinny. Again, these were baggy in the thigh, front and waist. I also just don’t really like myself in skinny jeans. Proof that just because something is a trend, doesn’t mean it’s gonna look good on you. Last, but not least, the R…

New Petite Online Store: For Petite Sake

and can give you an honest assessment. It’s great to actually be able to communicate with someone in retail who understands the difficulty of fitting petite figures. I wrote to Kim asking her if she had anything at For Petite Sake that runs small or would work for tiny petites and she replied with some options. Kim wrote: “We have found that some of the capri pants from Focus 2000 are running extremely small. A size 2 would probably be a size 00….
