It’s been a long time since I’ve gone shopping for button down shirt. Generally, I stay away from this category because I find it challenging to shop for. Often times when a button down fits my bust area it’s then too tight it hip area! Can anyone else relate? However, recently one of my friends reached out about where to find a good button down and I realized I had NO IDEA off the top of my head! So I decided to order styles from a variety of brands to figure out which ones are truly pear-friendly! Keep reading to find out what brands I recommend!
Looking for a cozy, petite-friendly turtleneck for winter days? I recently bought this one from J. Crew and was happy with how it fit me, even though it’s not a petite size.
Reformation is a brand that can be very hit or miss me. Sometimes styles fit very well and other times don’t seem to be cut for my body. Over the past couple times I’ve shopped, I find that I have the best luck with their dresses and tops. Recently I had the chance to visit their store and check out their latest pieces - keep reading for the full reviews of everything I tried on.
Perhaps a more appropriate title for this blog post is - if you got it, flaunt it :) When I was younger, I used to feel embarrassed about my curves I was constantly wishing for a smaller butt and slimmer thighs. My goal was generally to hide these parts of my body rather than show them off. Now that I’m a bit older and wiser, I’ve learned to love them. Which brings me to the real purpose of this post - SKIRTS! They are an amazing way to show off your pear curves whatever your personal style might be. Keep reading for my favorite silhouettes and styling tricks!
I’m excited to share this review because I’ve been wanting to check out more items from Express’ petite line ever since trying out their coats last Fall. It’s definitely been a while since I’ve shopped at Express. Honestly, I probably haven’t stepped foot in one since middle or high school. Was anyone else completely obsessed with their cami tank tops and t-shirts back in the day? While Express isn’t my go-to store, I’m always game to check out a brand that offers petite sizes.
Last year I realized that I wanted to start investing more in the pieces in my wardrobe (ranging from clothes to footwear). There have been a number of fast fashion items in my closet that I’ve truly loved from a design perspective, but sadly they have worn out after a year or two. Personally, I’m someone who likes to find classic yet trend-forward and interesting pieces that will last me more than one season. While on my blog in the past I’ve highlighted a lot of different trends each season, I’ve realized through the process I prefer to have a more consistent style. (Plus I seriously don’t have the energy to shop all the time!) Don’t get me wrong, I still love trying out new trends from time to time, but I’ve learned that my overall personal style is less defined by following all the latest trends.
After hearing rave reviews from my sister about Everlane’s Authentic Stretch denim, I decided to head to their store and try it on for myself. As someone who generally has a hard time finding jeans that fit, I was overall pretty impressed by their products. In addition to their Authentic Stretch jeans, Everlane also has their original denim line they launched prior to Authentic Stretch. Between the two lines, I was definitely a bigger fan of their Authentic Stretch styles because they fit me better in the waist. Sharing my thoughts below on a few of the styles!
Jumpsuits can be a tough category to shop for when you’re petite and pear-shaped! The most common issues I run into are the legs being too long or the hip area being too tight. In the past, I’ve mostly shopped in the petite section to find jumpsuits. While this usually fixes the length issue, it doesn’t always fix the fit issues I experience in the hip area. So I decided to try out having a jumpsuit custom made to my measurements from eShakti.
I find that shopping for shorts can be tricky with my body type! The most common issues I run into as a petite and pear-shaped lady are: waist gaps, tightness in the hip area, and shorts being too short since I have a bigger bum. In order to avoid these issues I’m sharing some of my tried and true shopping tips to help make the process easier for you.
When I saw that Reformation launched their denim line last fall, I got really excited! Especially because they offered petite sizes! (Lol us short girls know how tough it is to find jeans that aren’t too long.) Since this review has been super popular on my website, I decided to transition this review to cover all the main denim styles Reformation carries on a regular basis. Would love to hear your comments below about what styles are working for you guys.
