Much like my little black book of cosmetics, through constant trial and error, wear and tear, I'm separating the 'so so' clothing companies and designers from the truly outstanding for those of us with a petite frame. You don't always have time to wander around stores trying on outfit after outfit to find a piece that really fits, so I've done the hard work for you.
Here I've compiled the little black book of clothing companies for petite pieces, a guide to those who are more than worth a visit. Whilst it is good to 'try before you buy' with clothing, sometimes you just want to know who you find a decent fitting dress from before a wasted journey, so sit back and read through my listings.
Normally associated with horse riding but their heritage and international lines feature some wonderful pieces and even tweed pieces at a snippet of the price for a tailored suit.
They're vintage styled pieces are the perfect fit, from darling swing dresses to pretty knitted tops and pencil skirts, and all at prices that won't damage your purse either. Shop online or at their London boutiques.
I've yet to find an item by them which hasn't fitted perfectly, they've really taken to vintage style in the past few years and what they have come out with has been gorgeous. Not too pricey either so great for day to day wear. Available across plenty of vintage inspired shops.
Gorgeous day wear that's a comfortable fit, worth a look at for their dresses and knitwear.
Vintage styling with modern fit, wonderfully made and you won't find a better fit! With their new Bristol boutique you can shop in store or buy online.
Admittedly they can be a little hit and miss for style but when it comes to fit they're spot on. You really do need to keep an eye out for new season items and sales to spot a great find, but you'll be pleasantly surprised with what you do find!
Vintage and rockabilly wears that are the perfect fit, their knitwear range is perfect for day to day wear and their pencil skirts are just gorgeous.
For 20's inspired casual style you really can't beat them, their polo line is surprisingly great for fit, with shirts and trousers that could place you between the page of a F.Scott Fitzgerald novel. A little pricer than some labels I've featured, but worth visiting an outlet store for a bargain find.
Shirts in true to measurement sizes, and not too pricey either. Best to try on in store first to find your fit, but with branches UK wide you won't find yourself far from one.
Perfect investment pieces, like the lady herself says 'buy to last'. Always something gorgeous every season and the sizing is very straightforward, although you may need to try items like their Lee jeans on first to check for fit with each cut.
Use these contacts wisely and above all I cannot be held responsible for any lavish over spending..
