Petite Hangers For Narrow Shouldered Wardrobes

…Walnut :: Petite Top Hanger in Natural :: Petite Suit Hanger in Natural :: Petite Top Hanger in Walnut :: Petite Suit Hanger in Walnut I contacted Only Hangers and they were very generous to send me some hangers to play with. My shirts and blazers measure between 13″ and 14″ in the shoulder, so the junior 14″ hanger was a better fit for my wardrobe. Here’s a comparison of the much better fitting 14″ hanger (I chose the walnut color) to the velvet…

Petite Haute Couture Fashion House Carven Gets a Modern Makeover

…At this point in my life, I certainly can’t afford a high-end designer wardrobe, but I would love the option to buy a few special pieces in petite proportions that would hopefully not need invasive alterations.

Petite Dress Form

…not in any size even remotely close to my measurements. In fact, the only petite dress form I’ve ever seen with my measurements was this one that Petite XXS bought last year. But I didn’t want a modern sewing form…I wanted as close to a vintage style as I could get. So my search continued… Then, while surfing the web one day, I happened to stumble upon this: Female Petite Dress Form from The Classic Collection Clothing Forms. Size 0/1. The petite

Success! Some Tiny Petite Finds at Banana Republic

…blic Petite Silk Color-Block Skirt, $79.50 Here is the skirt on me in size Petite 00: Skirt: Banana Republic Petite Silk Color-Block Skirt, size Petite 00 Top: B.P. from Nordstrom, size XS Shoes: Cole Haan Grey Suede Almond Toe Pump, size 5 This skirt falls at the top of my hips, which is lower than it is intended (it looks to fall near the waist of the model), but that’s fine by me. Because I have a shorter torso, I generally don’t like tucking s…

Petite XXS at Banana Republic!

…very well, which is a positive sign that BR will continue to expand their petite line. Petite Kaleidescope Top I was lucky enough to snag the above silk top in petite XXS before it sold out online, and let me just say I am very excited about this new size. As I reviewed in my earlier post about Banana Republic petite silk tops, the PXS has always fit about 1-2 sizes too large on me. Well, when this baby arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to try…

Petite Proportions Are Not Always Created Equal

…cal neckline is high enough to be modest, but still an interesting detail. Petites: Petite asymmetrical tee – Grey suede, $39.50 Now, here it is in size XXS petite on my 4’11” self. Banana Republic Asymmetrical Tee in size XXS petite. The neckline is ill-proportioned on someone so short. The bottom of the V comes down way too low and to far to the side, so that it is no longer modest, and actually shows my bra. The shoulder width, torso width, and…

…– 16″ (pink) Waist: 16.5″ (black) – 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. I ordered size 00P, but received a pair labeled “24P”, which is interchangeable according to the “fit and sizing” guide. The ins…

Petite Fit Guide: Improper Fit of a Juniors Top on a Petite Woman

…obes. While shopping in juniors departments can yield a lot of success for petite women, there are things to look out for and avoid. Teen styles tend to be super trendy and youthful, which is dangerous for petite women who don’t want to get lost in a group of junior high schoolers on the street. Teen styles also tend to be made cheaply, with short lives, since teenagers are fickle creatures who will get bored and throw away their clothes rather qu…

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

…woman is often misguided and unresearched. I get frustrated when I see a “Petite Advice” item in magazines 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….
