Looking for small size bikini and beachwear? Are you short and it is hard for you to find the right size in regular shops? Check out brazilianbikinshop.com – we have created “Petit” Department!
Petite come from French and it literally means in English little or small. But what does Petite size mean in fashion?
Regular sized feminine clothes are designed for a woman about 165cm tall and will not fit properly or look good on a significantly shorter woman. This is why a petit size was created in fashion and clothing industry. It is specially designed to fit women of shorter height, typically 152 cm. The term “petite” only indicates the height of the person, not their weight, or shape, or any other size matters. Not all petites come in the skinny figures.
What is the difference between regular and petites sizes?
Petite size clothes usually have shorter sleeves, length, and body (e.g. torso) measurements. Some of them are also narrower in shoulders. What is more, petite clothing can be more than just scaled down versions of regular one. This clothing while well designed flatters the petite feminine figure.
