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 Workout Notes

Nike Tank Top - Size S

What I loved…

  • V-neckline - I’m a fan of this neckline for working out because it doesn't feel restrictive.
  • Color - I love this top because it's  neon color compliments my hair color and skin tone. 

What could be better…

  • Length  -  In general most workout tops I buy are slightly too long, but I have gotten used to it since many activewear brands don’t carry petite sizes. Note there are some brands like Athleta and Old Navy that do carry petite sizes, however their offerings are limited and only available online.

 

Garment measurements:

Front neckline drop = 5.75''

Center front = 18.25''

Center back = 25''

Bust = 30.5''

 

Athleta Printed Leggings -  Size M

What I loved…

  • Drawstring waistband - I was glad that these leggings have a drawstring waistband because they are too long on me (see below). Another reason I love a drawstring waistband is because my hips are wider than my waist so I tend to have to go up one size in leggings so they will fit my butt & thighs; however when I go up a size then the waistband is often too loose on me. So basically drawstring pants solves all my problems!  One thing I learned when shopping at Athleta recently is all of their running leggings have a drawstring waistband and all of their yoga leggings do not.
  • Print - I have never bought printed workout  leggings before, but I thought these looked cool so I decided to give them a try!

 

What could be better…

  • Length - These leggings are too long for me so they bunch up around my ankles slightly. (Inseam = 28.25’’) A shorter length inseam would be better for me especially because these leggings are printed at the bottom. I went ahead and bought them anyways because they were on sale.

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 30''

Rise = 8.5''

Inseam = 28.25''
