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.

PETITE ACTIVEWEAR: FOREVER 21

PETITE ACTIVEWEAR: FOREVER 21

 

Style Cliff Notes

Tank - Forever 21

Capri Leggings - Forever 21 (link to similar)

Sneakers - Nike

Yoga Mat - Hugger Mugger (link to similar)

 

Forever 21 doesn’t have a petite activewear line per se, but since they are a juniors brand I find that the cut of their clothing still works well for petite women.

 

Extended Style Notes

Forever 21 Graphic Muscle Tank - Size M

What I loved…

  • Muscle tank style - This tank was such a great find for me! I’ve always thought muscle tanks look really cool, but have never been able to find ones that fit me properly. Usually, they make me look really bulky. I found that this one seemed to be more slim cut than others I’ve tried on before. (Bust = 28’’)

  • Just the right length - What’s great about this tank is that it falls just below my waist so I don’t run into my normal issue with muscle tanks where they are too tight around my curvy hips. (Center front = 21.5’’)

 

Garment measurements:

Center front = 21.5''

Center back =  20.5''

Bust = 28’’

 

Forever 21 Capri Leggings - Size M

What I loved…

  • Drawstring waistband -  As I mentioned in an earlier post, I love capri leggings that have a drawstring in the waistband. Since I’m pear-shaped and my hips are wider than my waist, often times once I find a garment that fits around my hips and butt then it’s too loose around my waist. Having a drawstring helps solve that problem and prevents my leggings from sliding down.

 

What could be better…

  • Length  -  These capri leggings are a little bit longer than I prefer because they fall at mid calf on me. (Inseam = 20.5'')Ideally I like to find capris that are either an 18’’ or 19’’ inseam, but these were on major sale at $4.99 so I bought them anyways. Forever 21 definitely sells some shorter length capris on their website, but you’ll have to do a little digging and read some product descriptions to find them. 

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 28''

Front Rise = 9.25''

Inseam = 20.5''
