WHAT MAKES IT PETITE

Our petites styles have been proportionately shortened with expert attention to detail to ensure our petite garments fit women of 5’3’’ and under absolutely perfectly.

  • For maxi dresses, the total length measured from the side neck point is 8cm/3.1 inches shorter in length than our regular maxi dresses.
  • For knee length dresses, the total length measured from the side neck point is 5cm/2 inches shorter in length than our regular knee length dresses.
  • The bodice section of our dresses has also been reduced. The armhole is 1cm/0.4 inches shorter, and from the underarm to the waist is 2cm/0.8inches shorter.
  • Trousers are 4cm/1.6inches shorter measured at the inside leg, and also 1cm/0.4 inches shorter at the crotch seam on both the front and back.
  • Full length sleeves are 3cm/1.2 inches shorter than the regular sleeve length.
  • The cross shoulder area has been reduced by 2cm/0.8inches in total (style dependent).
  • The girth (circumference) measurements remain the same as the regular sizes.
