‘petite’ and short women, be heard!
When will designers realize that petite does not mean short lenghth. It is a measurement from Crotch to Waist. Didn’t they teach you that in fashion school?
HIYA SERENAFAN:heart: ……EXCELLENT THREAD ‘OUR’ LITTLE FRIEND! :womanvery-happy::heart: =)
“tall” women, be heard TOO!
I’m 5’10” and EVERYTHING is too short for me…especially pants.
I can’t lengthen what I don’t have, the hem’s are so skimpy!
The only pants long enough are DG2 tall, hate the fit so NOT an option, but she does make short lengths and Yummie, thank God, tho I do understand.
Can’t wear Slinky, Marla, Giuliana, Hal, Serena, Antthony, Wendy, IMAN, Mellissa, Sigrid, Nikki, Jamie etc.
I buy according to the models who look ridiculous trying to compromise by lowering the crotch or sporting a high vamp shootie or sandal.
HELLO, boot cuts & wides that flare above the ankle bone are so not flattering!
Don’t even get me started about sporting 3/4 length sleeves in the winter! Brrrrh
I’m 5’2″ and prefer petite tops too……
I am 5’0 and about 115. I can wear Iman jeans in short but her pallazo pants, dresses, skirts much too long. It is true HSN caters to taller women.
Yes! I too am petite. Would buy more clothes if they offered petite sizing for sure. That was the best thing about the Maggie Sweet brand years ago. You could always count on that brand to offer petite sizes in both pants and tops.
Ditto, and not just pants – dresses too. I do not like wearing dresses that hit me mid calf when hitting at the knee is much more flattering. I wanted the “Anniversary” dress badly a few years ago, but it didn’t come in Petite and hemming it would not have been possible without ruining the look. I am going this afternoon to get some HSN pants and a dress from the tailor which has significantly increased the price. I usually don’t buy unless they are marked down so low on clearance that tailoring makes it worthwhile. I am 5’2″ and weigh about 127 lbs (in the morning without clothes, haha).
I couldn’t agree more. I’m five feet tall and have to buy all my pants at QVC, even though I prefer HSN. They really need to address this.
I need 28″ length and if I can’t get it, I’m not buying!!!!!
Yes. I feel your pain. HSN would be wise to realize that there is a large untapped market for plumb petties as a lot of Americans are overweight nowadays. To just cater to the average and thin is not a proactive marketing decision, IMHO. Look at all the smiles for goodness sakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am 5′ tall and I just want to say to all the below posts:
You can add me to the list of short folk. I don’t need the “cut” of a petite garment but for length, I do. I don’t do too much clothes buying here unless its a pair of Serena’s leggings or a top or two that fancies me.
There are plenty of us out there that can’t wear a 56 inch length dress unless we hem it first. Since I’m not good at doing this and would have to pay ~ it adds to the cost of the garment. Just ain’t worth it for me. The couple of designers that do offer petite lengths still miss the mark for me. 30 inch inseam is not petite enough for me. I’m 5’0.
Try Slinky. I am 5’2″ as well. I have found that the slinky pants are the perfect fit for me. I love them!!! Just today I got #468305. This set does come in pettite but is meant to fall above the ankles. That is not my taste so I ordered the regular length. When I tried them on the length was just right.
No offense..It’s HSN’s loss…
Been loving Jennifer Lopez pants at Kohls
Perfect fit in jeans.
