Hi.

I'm Kristin! A short & curvy girl seeking clothes that fit. Originally from the South, I'm now taking on NYC! My blog is dedicated to providing style and fit guides for petite-pear shaped women.

SHOPPING IN THE TOPSHOP PETITES SECTION

SHOPPING IN THE TOPSHOP PETITES SECTION

 

Topshop is one of my favorite stores, but as much as I love their clothes, their petite section has some room for improvement...

 

When I go shopping at Topshop, I always walk through the regular size section first and fall madly in love with the jackets and skirts that I will definitely need in a petite size…

 

Feeling lovestruck -  I rush off to the petites’ section to find the gorgeous jacket I have to have, but it’s not there…

 

So I decide to look around and see if anything else strikes my fancy, but the petites’ section is microscopic and there’s barely anything to choose from…

 

Not to mention all the fun, trendy items that I saw on the regular size floor are nowhere to be found in the petites section. Everything in the petites’ section is boring and basic…

 

In the event that I do find something I like it the petites’ section at Topshop, usually there clothes run a little small so unless I go a size up the fitting process goes a little something like this…

Do all these pain points keep me from shopping at Topshop? No because I love their clothes so much that I will find the ones that do fit me.

will always love you.gif

 

Do I think they could do a better job of serving the petite customer? Absolutely!
