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

Athleta Funnelneck Hoodie - Size S

What I loved…

  • Fitted - When it comes to sweatshirts, I prefer ones with a more fitted design because it highlights my waist and the smallness of my upper body relative to my hips.

  • Funnelneck -  The hood on this sweatshirt is amazing (and is basically the whole reason I bought it)!  I love the funnelneck design because it’s such a cozy sweatshirt to bundle up in.

 

What could be better…

  • Sleeves too long -  Since this sweatshirt isn’t available in a petite size, I found the sleeves were a little long for me. (Sleeve length = 33’’) So I used my go-to trick of folding the excess part of the sleeves up so they don’t swallow up hands.

  • Roomy in bust -  The only other downside of this sweatshirt is that it fits me a little funny through the bust. I don’t know about y’all, but I often find due to my pear-shaped figure once I find a top that fits my hip area it’s usually a little big in the bust area.

Old Navy Go Dry Mid Rise Leggings with Mesh Panel - Size Petite M

What I loved…

  • Just the right length - These leggings made me so happy when I put them on because they weren’t too long! It’s such a rarity for me to find leggings that I don’t have to fold the excess fabric underneath. I appreciate so much that Old Navy offers petite sizing in activewear because relatively few brands do, however it makes a big difference in terms of fit. It’s a nice change to have leggings that are the proper inseam length given my height. (Inseam = 27.75'')

  • Drawstring - Since I have a pear-shaped figure and my waist is much narrower than my hips, I often find that my leggings are constantly sliding down. One of my favorite features is the drawstring waistband because it keeps them sitting snug on my waist.

 

What could be better…

  • Thinner fabric - The fabric on these tights is thinner relative to leggings I have bought at Athleta, but hey that comes with the territory since Old Navy's product is a lower price point. It didn’t bother me, but I think there is the potential they might wear out faster than my Athleta ones.

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 28''

Inseam = 27.75''
