How to take your measures?

Before diving into the size charts, take your time to take your measurements. It’s not complicated. All you need is a tape measure.

Close to your body

When you take your measurements, try to wear thin clothes or measure yourself in underwear. Indeed, clothes add a few centimeters to your measurements and can cause you to choose a size larger than what you will need.

If, despite everything, you can not do it, think to remove 3 to 4 cm to the measurements that you will have obtained. It will not be your precise measurements, but it will come close to it.

Measure your bust

Measure yourself at the point of the breasts, at the widest point.

Measure your waistline

Measure yourself at the narrowest point of your waist.

Measure your hips

Finally, to know your hip circumferences, position the tape measure at the widest point of your hips.

Why Should you pick Petite-Friendly Sizes ?

Petite women have measurements who are slightly different from normal sizes. What it means is that our Petite-friendly S, for instance, might be a little bit different from a standard “S”.

Indeed, between a person who measures 5’3 and another who measures 5’6, there are no less than 12 different measurements :

  • The armhole depth
  • The height of the bodice
  • Shoulder width
  • The bust
  • The waistline
  • Bottom openings
  • The length of the sleeve
  • The height of the rounded shoulder
  • The hips
  • The front and back fork
  • The length of the crotch
  • The total length of the garment

That’s why if you are Petite, you will feel more comfortable in a garment designed for petite stature than in normal-sized clothing.

Mannequin Taille Petite

I measure more than 5'3. Does it mean I can't wear your clothes?

Our specialty and our mission is to dress Petite body frames. We do not make standard-sized clothes.

However, you may very well be of medium height or be tall and have “petite” measurements.

Everything is a question of proportions. If you have narrow shoulders, a flat bust, a short torso or if you feel that the cleavage is often too indented, you may feel more comfortable in petite-friendly top or dress.

Similarly, if you have short legs, it is possible that pants with shorter legs would fit you perfectly.

Do not hesitate to take an appointment with our showroom if you want to have an opinion on the question!
