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…

Summer 2009: Banana Republic Petite XXS

…just not my personal taste, so that will be returned as well. Now…the bad… Petites: Petite silk ruffle top – White, in Petite XXS, $69.50 100% silk This top is akin to wearing a sack. There was no drape to this top…just a poof outward that makes my torso look like a square. Even the ruffle details on this one were too much for my small frame, and looked ridiculous. This one is definitely being returned. Now…the keeper, but with alterations… Petite

Putting Theory to Rest

…at brand runs REALLY small!” I would like to set the record straight. Yes, Theory size 00 works for a lot of petites, but not ones as tiny as me. I tried on some Theory size 00 pants because I’m always hoping that some day, somewhere in a land far far away, I’ll find a cut that fits. Here are my results after trying on several pairs of differing cuts. This is the Max C pant by Theory in size 00 . The pant falls really low on my hips, and the crotc…

Petite Bras: The Little Bra Company

…n my girls so…um…well, you know what I mean. =) It’s amazing what a proper petite fit can do for a petite woman. I also tried their t-shirt bra, but found the cups to be too small for me, which is amazing, because very rarely do I ever find anything too small! The list of retailers in the US and abroad carrying The Little Bra Company is expanding, so see if a store near you is carrying them so you can try them on in person. If not, they are offeri…

Fit Review Friday – Banana Republic Petite Fall Items

…nd my measurements for comparison here. On to the reviews… Banana Republic Petite Trench Dress // Size Petite 00 This is technically a dress, but it piqued my interest for it’s possibilities as a drapey trench. The fabric is a super soft modal and the color is a slightly faded soft green, which I thought would make it a versatile piece if I could successfully wear it open as a trench. Fully snapped (it has snaps instead of buttons) up as a dress d…

Bindi TS Jacket from Theory.com (Similar from Bloomingdales.com) I found these jackets in size 00 at both my local Theory store, and Bloomingdales department store. These jackets run a little less or more fitted depending on the fabric, for example, the white and black were a little stiffer, but the seersucker w…

Dresses That Run Small: BCBG Max Azria Petites

…a petite dresses that I tried on recently in my local Nordstrom store. The labels actually say “petite”, so these have even smaller proportions than the regular BCBG sizes. You won’t find the petite sizes in BCBG boutiques, and I have never seen separates in petites, so it looks like dresses are my only option for now. Lots of people tell me BCBG runs small, and stress the fact they have a tiny size XXS. Well, they aren’t quite that small because…
