Length of clothing for people 5ft or shorter for church attire
I am Mrs. Janis ***. I have on many occasions requested that the designers that HSN uses remember that everyone is not a “:GIANT.” There are many people such as myself that are seasoned in age, church goers, doesn’t want short clothing and are 5ft inches in height. I have asked Tiana B personally to remember her short people because she is short herself and make shorter dresses to go over the knee for people such as my self. I don’t wear pants so my only option is dresses or skirts etc.
I don’t think that it is fair for me to have to buy clothing longer than 49 or 50 inches and have to go and spend additional money to have it altered to fit me.
Today, I saw a dress by Antthony Designs that I wanted so bad with the design in the middle of the dress. It would have looked so nice on me but, it was 55inches long. My God, everybody is not tall like him or your models. What about us? I wear a 2x and love maxzis no longer than 49 inches because it would not be dragging on the floor. Can somebody please start thinking of us?
Also, why don’t you have models of different heights and different sizes, (small, medium, large, plus sizes)?
I’m about ready to put HSN on a time out I purchase a lot thru HSN and would like to continue so please take my request into consideration in regards to your choice of desigers that are willing to accommodate all of your customers.

Being vertically challenged, I had to learn how to sew at a young age. I’m 5′ and almost everything I buy has to be hemmed. I do appreciate having the petite option and get a much better fit if I order petite but hemming is still almost always necessary.
I feel your pain. At 5’3" I am considered a tall female in my family and we are also small boned. It is sad when Twiggy is cut on a size that can be too big but I have learned what fits and what doesnt. I got four Nikki maxi dresses for myself and even in xs they are a bit long and two a bit big. I love them though because I use a thick belt to hold the middle where I want it and adjust the length and it gives me lots of options. On the two that are two big there are arm adjustments and waist ties so they are perfect for tiny people too 🙂 I also want to try some of the ankle length one piece things but my ankles look like I am the classroom skeleton 🙁
I ordered the N Natori asian belt a few days ago in clearance for $12 then it dropped to $6 and HSN gave me the credit. I do believe that he designed a dress for the first lady and I have one of his belts for $6!!!!! Also I want to order the "thinner by dinner" belt in clearance.
Thick belts for maxis and also Rhonda and a few others sell nice top coverage modesty pieces that I use with my maxis and other things when I need to be very proper 🙂
It would be nice if Susan Lucci came back but dont you know that I was extremely overweight the entire time she had her line on HSN 🙂 come back Susan…
I, too, would purchase many more dresses, skirts, trousers…if more designers would design for those of us that are petite. I’d like to say THANK YOU to those designers that do remember there are ladies that are under 5′ 5". I love maxi dresses! There was a maxi presented recently that I’d have purchased in ever color if it’d have been available in petite sizes. It costs too much $ to have clothing customized AFTER already making the original purchase.
Another article of clothing I’d love to see in petite sizes are TOPS! Tops of every sort…coats, too! Personally, I’m hard pressed to think that any designer would ‘purposefully’ cut out a whole section of potential buyers. I can hem, but I certainly cannot remake sleeves, that have embellishments to fit my petite length arms.
Please…HSN…bring this up with your clothing designers. It’s not rocket science to understand that all women are not the same height, weight, height or shape. It would seem that every designer would welcome the idea to reach a wider audience of buyers. Plus, the benefit that a potential buyer would also, most likely, look at other items the designer has to sell. If a designer cares enough to include women of all shapes and sizes…is a desinger that cares!
Here are a few options – 423-824 412-641 423-916 403-975 392-969 – more can be found if you input maxi dresses, once that comes up you will want to select p2x in size, or 2x, loads of options in petites (depending on your style)! Description will give length.
Wishing you fun shopping and a wonderful weekend!
