how ispetite different?

neckline & bodice

The neckline and arm openings are proportioned to suit you, and the bodice is shortened by an inch.


The waistline is repositioned to hit you in just the right spot. Taller than 5’4” but have a shorter torso? Petite might be for you!


The skirt is 3 inches shorter. If there’s a train or embellishments, we thoughtfully scale those to fit your petite body, too.
