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.

Extended Style Notes

ASOS Full Metal Waist Belt - Size S/M

What I loved...

  • Waist definition - This belt is so amazing because (A) it's all gold and (B) it makes your waist look amazing! I chose this trend from the runway because I felt like it highlighted my petite pear curves well! The waist definition this belt provides does an excellent job of highlighting the smallness of my upper body relative to my curvy hips. This look totally makes me feel like Kim K!
  • Size Note - I ordered both sizes of this belt because I wasn't sure which one would fit best since my waist. The small size is 68 cm (approx. 27’’) and the large size is 71 cm (approx. 28’’). It does have an adjustable metal chain in back so you can alter the size somewhat.

 

Selected Femme Lace Top – Size S

What I loved...

  • Tuck it in - As I mentioned in a blog post last week, I love tucking my top into my pants because it helps to define my waist.
  • Lace - I love how the V-neck bodysuit looks underneath this lace top. The v-neck is one of my favorite necklines because it enhances my small bust. ;)

What could be better...

  • A little long - Since this top was not available in a petite size, I found it was a little long for me because I have a short torso. I just folded the excess fabric underneath itself.

 

Garment measurements:

Center front = 23''

Bust = 34''

Waist = 28''

Sleeve length = 29.25''

Center back = 24.75''

 

 

ASOS Petite Ribbed Bodysuit – Size 6 Petite

What I loved...

  • Petite size - I was happy this bodysuit was available in petite sizing because it's better proportioned to my body compared to a regular size. Since I have a short torso, I like to buy a petite size so there's not excess fabric.
  • V-neck - See above. 'Nuf said.

 

Garment measurements:

Bust = 29''

Waist = 26''

 

H&M Conscious Jogger Pants – Size 6

What I loved…

  • Just the right length - Even though these pants are not a petite size, they were the perfect length for me (Inseam = 27.75’’).

What could be better…

  • Tight through the hips – These pants were a little tight around my hips, but it wasn’t too noticeable.

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 27''

Inseam = 27.75''

Hips = 38''
