What Exactly is Petite?
Although defined as up to 5'4" tall, Petite is not just about height. It's about proportion.
You may be taller than 5'4" with a shorter arm, torso, or leg length. Your tops may be Petite,
but your pants may be Regular (or vice versa). Either way, wearing a Petite top or bottom
or both, depending on your unique proportions, will ensure the perfect fit.

Tops, Tees & Dresses
Tops and dresses are proportionally slimmer, low necklines are raised, wide necklines are
narrowed slightly, and shoulder seams, waistlines and pockets are placed a little higher.
Pants are designed with a slightly lower rise, a higher knee and a shorter inseam.
