What does petite mean?

It’s a common misconception that you can’t be petite if you are plus size. NEWS FLASH you can be petite at any size. 

In fact, clothing size has got nothing to do with it, it’s all about your height.

Generally, you are petite if you are 5,4’ or shorter. 

We know for a lot of our shorter friends, they are forever taking up hems because the pants they buy are just too long! This is why the inseam of petite clothing lines are different.
