Size Guide for Petite Women

Size Guide for Petite Women

This is a concise size guide for petite women. Petite is a size determined by nothing more than height.
The definition of petite is:
adjective: petite
(of a woman) attractively small and dainty.
"she was petite and vivacious"







synonyms: small, dainty, diminutive, slight, little, tiny, elfin, delicate, small-boned;

 
It is true that many petite women have smaller frames and bone structure than non-petite women but this doesn’t mean that all women have delicate face shapes, tiny waists or boyish figures. The standard height of a woman classed as petite is 5 foot 3 or under. Naturally, a woman of 4 ft 11 is going to be significantly shorter and different in shape and body proportions that a woman of 5 ft 3, which is why you need to understand the many aspects of petite dressing.
In some countries, the word “petite” in clothing signifies a range of clothing made for shorter women but the maximum height in some countries is 5 ft 4, in which you may still be classed as petite. Generally, a petite lady is anybody who is no taller than 5 ft 3. There are no limitations on weight, body shape or shoe size.
