At 5’4 and 3/4, I don’t have to shop in the petite section, but I like to. I’ll occasionally check out the section in stores and the selections, you guessed it, are limited. I’ll find a maxi dress I love in the regular aisle, wander into the petite section to look for the same one, and, eventually, come out empty handed. This is something all pint-sized women are all too familiar with, which is why I want to talk about an industry game changer: Petite Studio.
The brand’s name first popped into my work email and since then I’ve been obsessed with the site. The company launched in 2015 with an aim to help petite girls find cute, affordable clothing. Thinking this was too good to be true, I quickly browsed through the site — counting all the items I’d buy, which was basically everything. (Ugh, sorry wallet!)
There was a nice mix of Summer dresses (think Reformation style), tops, and bottoms all hovering around the $90-$150 mark. Aside from the decent prices, I know when I order the “Salvia dress” (my favorite) or “Freeshia shorts” it won’t require extra tailoring. It would be a disservice if I didn’t share my finding with the world, so if you’re a petite gal in need of the perfect dress or shirt, read on to shop.
