Being a petite women has its perks, of course, like easily being able to find a partner who's taller than you or easily maneuvering throughout a crowd of people without being seen. About 80% of women in the world are under the height of 5'6" but most of the clothes available are for women over 5'6" which is a disadvantage for us "fun-sized" folks.
So, while some taller women have the advantage of being able to buy a pair of jeans without having them altered, we are left walking around like small children wearing our mothers clothing. Although many brands and stores have petite departments, they can often be limited when it comes to the options that are available. Finally, there is a brand that caters specifically to petite women: Petite Epoque!
