Top 40 Petite Clothing Brands – Sydney, Australia & Online

petite clothing sydney australia

Shopping for petite clothing brands in Sydney, Australia or Online can be tough, so I’ve got my top 40 petite brands narrowed down for you in this handy little list!

There’s no denying that some brands fit can be really out of whack, sometimes it’s because they’ve got a fit model with a completely different shape to us and sometimes it’s our height that lets us down when we’re just trying to get something that doesn’t make us look like an un-effortless bitch. Should it really be that hard?

Contrary to popular belief, petite sizing is not made for smaller clothing sized people. Many petite brands stock from size 4 to 16 and that’s because petite clothing is made for women who are 5’4′ and shorter. Now, with this news, I may have just solved your fit problems if you’ve been shopping petite ranges as a taller woman – the good news is that you can retreat to some different brands and taller woman options. Hooray!

  1. Thank you for putting this information out. I have also done checking in the US and designs are fitted for “petite” individuals who are by modeling standards 5’’ 7” to 5’5”. The individuals at several agencies and clothing companies whom I talked to said that this was normal/standard across the board and when I explained that that is Not the case and that petite is classified as 5’ and under and proportions are not the same as a model of 5’7” they went into a cranky tizzy speech and hung up. Apparently, they don’t like the facts brought to their attention.
    Stay unique Ladies, Great things come in small packages. As in person told me we are perfect because we are fun sized.

  2. Hello, thanks for your fabulous blog!,
    Uniqulo has excellent sizing and proportions for us. Neat tailoring and classic simple stylish basics for work, with iron- free fabrics.
    Pavement stores say they have a big adult following too. A bit patchy …. but now ( March 2018) have faux leather and Autumn dresses. Definitely worth dropping in from time to time especially at the start of the season. .
    Piper Petites at DJs have interesting things but more taller petites will find things there .
    Country Road is for big tall people but they cater for their young women now and offer 4-6 pieces per season of size 6 mini skirts and cropped skinny jeans- very slimming cut, 1-3 cropped dressy tops, but they are worth checking in for.
    French Connection ( DJs & Myer too) have some shorter unstructured cuts in pencil skirts
    Princess Highway( groovy Boho Melbourne label available in Myer ) – popular with uni students. Review have neat cropped cardigans in fabulous colours as a staple and pencil skirts in neat cuts perfect for 145 cm like me:) Best of luck! Stay happy:)

  3. Hi, I am a petite, petite – 152 cm and 40 kilo. Thanks for your article. I find clothes shopping very stressful as almost nothing fits and even petite brands, although designed for shorter people, still don’t seem to cater for people who are tiny all over (size 2-4). I do, however, find that I can get perfect fitting trousers, dresses and jackets from Marcs and have also started shopping at Pavement (girls size 12). I recently had a very good shopping session at Miss Shop in Myer and found the brand Lulu and Rose was really nice, stylish , pretty and still suitable for an adult. Seed also have the occasional thing that fits.

    1. Miss Shop is fantastic, they’re designed for teenagers but there’s so much to choose from. I also love Marcs for petites, I’m interested to see how Marcs go now that the company has changed owners. I’m hoping they stick to their sizing, I’ve already noticed a few small changes in fabrics of garments that are top sellers for them. I hope Marcs stays just as good as it’s always been!
