…– 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 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….

J.Crew Gingham – Boy’s vs. Women’s Petite

…hand the way J.Crew did. So back I went and re-ordered some J.Crew women’s petite gingham shirts during the fall sale, and threw some J.Crew boy’s gingham into the mix, just to see. Here’s the breakdown: J.Crew Petite Perfect Shirt in Gingham, 00P: Not the most slim or shapely of shirts, but surprisingly, one of the best fits I found. My main gripes with it are the long length on 4’11” me, the shoulder, and the bust seam. After a few commenters po…

New Businesses Throwing Their Hats into the Petite Fashion Ring

…ex pants does not a clothing line make! And can you really call something “petite” if it’s just nothing but spandex? Ick! Candy Blue Shop – This online retailer of petite clothing features more clubby styles, which are not my cup of tea, but if you do decide to give them a try, beware of their “store credit only” return policy.

Some Picks From Ann Taylor Loft in XXS Petite

…for fun. Sleeveless style is easy to alter, just like the pink one above. Petite Print Dress with Pleated Neck, $69.00 Sweaters: Ann Taylor LOFT petite sweaters run pretty small! They are usually a tiny bit roomy on me right off the rack, but after a wash or two, fit perfectly. This is probably due to seam allowance, or the extra room garment manufacturers leave in clothing to allow for shrinkage during washing. I like these sweaters because: 100…

Fit Review Friday – J.Crew Petite Swing Trench & Sale Sweaters

…waist. I’ll add here that I also tried size petite xxs, but opted for the petite xs instead. The petite xxs was very, very snug, and I feared I wouldn’t be able to pull it over a sleeved shirt if I wanted to layer. I also like to give my cashmere (and other wool sweaters) a little wiggle room in case of shrinkage. I also took size pxs for the merino v-neck cardigan, so these cashmere ones seem to running about the same size. Japanese Poplin Swing…

Petite Gap Tees – Fit Review Friday

…st: 17.5″ Sleeve: 23″ Bicep: 5″ Length: 23″ Gap Linen Solid Tee // Size xs petite *40% off with code WOW (thru 11/9). To compare to the regular size linen long sleeve tee, here is the petite. Noticeably shorter in length and narrower all around, this is very obviously a better fit for me. Again, the fabric is thin and sheer, even in this dark color, and the neckline is rather small. Pulling this over my head is a guaranteed frizz producer…not idea…
