There’s nothing more frustrating than trying on a pair of jeans, only to realize they’re 5 inches too long. Being petite definitely has its benefits but when it comes to shopping, it can quickly make life difficult. Thankfully, there are a handful of petite-friendly retailers out there who know our problem way too well — just so you know, I’m standing at 5’2, so I can relate all too well. Petite shopping definitely isn’t what it used to be with so many retailers creating stylish product lines just for us shorties.
Here are 10 of the best stores to shop at if you’re petite!
Say goodbye to frumpy petite sections and say hello to Topshop’s on-trend selection of chic petite styles. If you thought the store only had petite jeans available to shop, think again because Topshop has a full range of items from skirts and jumpsuits, to shorts and even jackets. The section is especially curated for women 5’3 and under, so no more missing out on chic styles because of your height.
Need some office appropriate clothes? Banana Republic is filled with trendy work staples available in petite-friendly sizes. We all know there’s nothing worse than an ill-fitting pencil skirt, and Banana Republic has us covered with its selection of skirts, dresses, trousers, cardigans, and more, all tailored to us gals on the shorter side.
Known for clothing in seriously cool patterns and materials is Anthropologie and it’s petite section is definitely worth checking out and shopping, too. If you’ve ever struggled with wanting to find a maxi skirt that doesn’t drag on the floor behind you, Anthropologie should be next on your shopping list. In addition to its selection of snazzy skirts, the store is filled with petite pieces like denim, culottes, dresses, jackets, and sweaters.
Is there anything that you can’t find on ASOS? I didn’t think so. A fave around the world for good reason, the petite section is definitely one to rave about with so many unique options designed for ladies who stand at under 5’3. No matter if you’re in the market for new jeans, or need a fabulous gown to wear for a special occasion, ASOS has you covered and has a variety of pieces that will likely not need to be altered upon arrival.
Another e-retail that’s a favourite among many is Boohoo and in case you were unaware, it has a stellar petite section that’s just waiting for you. If you’re sick of wearing tops that are far too long or jeans that you have to roll up, step into Boohoo’s world of petite offerings. What I love about the petite section on Boohoo is that it’s filled with sexier options like faux leather leggings, bodysuits, bralets, and mini skirts.
If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop, Nordstrom is the place to go with it’s incredible selection of everything, including petite clothing. No matter what you’re in search of, whether it’s a winter parka, a suit, a gown, or denim, it’s all available in petite-friendly sizing.
Instead of us petite girls having just a small section of a store to shop, Jeetly has gifted us with our very own specialty store. This U.K-based retailer has items that were created with petite measurements in mind so that the result is a perfect petite fit.
Known for its feminine, flowy, and sustainable pieces, Reformation’s petite section consists of gorgeous dresses, skirts, pants, and jumpsuits. While prices might be a bit steep, shopping sustainable is so important these days so it really does pay off!
With what seems to be an endless product line, Pretty Little Thing is the place to shop if you’re looking to revamp your petite wardrobe. With items like suits, swimsuits, blouses, trousers, and more available to purchase, you’ll be glad you’re short because everything is so seriously cute!
Who doesn’t love a trip to Hudson’s Bay? The iconic Canadian retailer is my go-to store for pretty much everything I need, and it never disappoints, especially in the petite shopping department. Whether you’re after business casual items, cozy loungewear, or a petite blouse to spice up your wardrobe, this is the place to shop!
