How to flatter a petite shape


cotton petite dresses, shrugs

Do you have a small, petite frame? Because if you do, I know that it can be difficult to find clothes that not only fit you, but also flatter your body. So if you’re curious to see what you can wear to make your shape seem taller and leaner, read on for a quick run-down of what to do. If you are…

Petite and pear-shaped

If you’re pear-shaped that means that you have a larger bottom half than top half, and if that’s the case then you’re going to want to stay away from horizontal stripes and too short of shirts. If you wear those clothes then it will only make your bottom half appear larger. You might also avoid something like gaucho or Capri pants because it will make your legs look shorter.

Petite and curvy

If you have a curvy but petite shape then you’re going to want to stick with skirts that hit right at or just above your knee because these will make your legs appear longer. You should also wear v-neck shirts and blouses because it will elongate your neck. You should also try wearing cotton petite dresses, because a dress is the perfect thing to show off your legs. Definitely don’t wear clothing that’s too tight but also don’t wear clothes that will hide your curves from anyone.

Petite and boy shaped

If you are petite and you have a slightly boyish frame, where you’re lacking in the curves department, stay away from shapeless clothes. Something you should consider buying are shrugs, this will not only emphasize your curves but make you appear more feminine. If you’re looking for a nice dress to wear then consider picking up something that cinches at the waist to really create the illusion of a small waistline. If you add in some black tights with black shoes then it will make your legs look even longer.
