Shopping Strategies/Petite

You are a petite if you are 5’3” (160cm) and under. The petite woman can face a real hard time finding well fitting clothes. Some of you are probably perfectly happy shopping from the normal fashion stores but a very big percentage of the petite women need to find a retailer that is specializing in fashion for petites. Fortunately there are some really good companies that offer clothes for petites (see the list bellow) and shopping there guarantees you 100% certain that all specifics of your delicate frame are taken into consideration when the garment is produced. 

Before you start shopping read the general ruler for smart shopping and don’t forget the general rules for how to dress your petite body.

In short:

  • Wear bright and light colours as they visually enlarge
  • Wear vertical stripes, they elongate the figure
  • Try wearing the same colour on top and bottom as this will also create the illusion of a taller silhouette
  • Wear small patterns and prints, and small in scale jewelry and accessories
  • Wear high heels 

Here is a list of some of the best retailers that offer fashion for petites
