Being 5ft 0.3 (the 0.3 counts) I am officially classed as petite and the crazy thing about this is I do not look at myself as being small at all. I can stand next to someone who I know is a good 5 inches taller than me and I will feel exactly the same size as them, until I have to look up to talk to them. People often will say ‘your tiny’ to which I feel like I should look over my shoulder at who they are actually talking about only to always be surprised that its me thats short. Kourtney Kardashian is also 5ft and you would never guess from photos of her until she is standing next to any one of her sisters who all tower over her and it is all in the clothes.
I have found it so hard growing up to actually find any clothes that fit my correctly and its not even just the legs I seem to have small body as well so even on some t shirts and vests the straps are too long, so this is a few of my favourite places to shop where I have found have the best petite range so if you are one of the ‘small’ girls have a look here because I can guarantee you will no longer need the sowing machine out to take your trousers up!
Topshop are great for dress’ and jeans, they actually come in different waist and length so you will always be able to get your perfect fit.
New Look do a great range of work clothes in petite which I find brilliant as looking like your drowning in a professional environment is not a good look.
Miss Selfridge Have THE BEST range of party dress’ and evening wear for us tiny girls who still want a short dress to actually be short and not knee length the same as a maxi being a maxi and not a ball gown.
Dorothy Perkins are great for any jumpers and tops to create the basic look for daily occasions.
Last but not least ASOS! They have everything you could want from Coats to dress’, Jeans to vests and they are all great quality and so flattering.
I hope you manage to find yourself something in these places and leave your comments if you have any other ideas where I can try.
