Fit Review Friday – Banana Republic Petite Fall Arrivals

…ck) – 17″ (pink) Length: 26″ Banana Republic Petite Destroyed Black Skinny Jean // Size Petite 00 $110 Banana Republic denim has never worked for me in the past, but when I saw these, I really liked the wash and saw they were labeled as a new “premium denim”, so figured I’d give them a shot.

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

…zines or websites that states, “alter down regular sizes” or, “shop in the Juniors Department”. The people writing these things are obviously not petite women, or have ever had to go shopping with one. I can stand in dressing rooms for hours, tugging and pulling at fist fulls of fabric, wondering if my tailor could nip or tuck an item into shape. I’ve found it also takes a keen eye to figure out exactly how something should fit, when you’ve never…

Introducing Hemmed

…grow beyond the niche within a niche it’s in, and help a broader range of petite women. With most petite bloggers on the tiny side of the spectrum, I see a lot of petite women pass on the chance to join in on the fun because they feel they have nothing to add or nothing to learn. There is also a misconception that “petite”, when it comes to fashion, means short and thin. I’m still amazed at how many short women don’t think they can shop petite si…

Some Picks From Ann Taylor Loft in XXS Petite

…f colors. Great to put over a dress for warmth or modesty, or add color to jeans and a t-shirt. Petite V-Neck Cardigan, $39.50 Pants: I’ve actually tried these pants on! I like these because: The Marissa fit has the lowest rise, so it fits lower on the waist. 98% cotton, 2% spandex fabric content means they have some stretch, so they’re probably cut a bit small. In fact, “stretch” is part of the name of the pant. The fit of these was pretty good,…
