Wearing Adidas on stage a few months ago totally freaked me out, walking past models and girls in heels I was totally out of my comfort zone. I’m never out of heels, I wear them everyday.
Being petite actually represents 70% of women. Can you believe that? I know I can’t. I often have felt very disadvantaged being 5ft but I am learning to love what I have got because life is for living.
Petite is defined as under 5ft 5 which at 5ft I certainly am petite.
I often feel that there is a negative image connected with my size regarding beauty and intelligence, without ranting I do feel it’s connected with media you would never see a 5ft petite model even modeling the petite ranges somthing I would love to see changed I mean we have plus models why not petite right ??
Being petite can bring a lot of patronizing attitudes like your height means your not capable and one thing I personally hate is to be underestimated.
As a petite blogger I don’t find it hard to get clothes I buy what I like if it needs altered it gets altered and that’s it I do love petite ranges tho and my fav is topshop there jeans are the only ones I wear the fit it perfect and so is the length but they sell very fast never enough stock Asos is also pretty good fit as is riverisland there is a few I don’t like but I won’t mention them.
Its not all bad tho there is a good few positives
less legs to shave
people think your younger always great when your getting older ha
you can wear heels anywhere and not look out of place
you can steal your kids clothes
So short girls we too can rule the world and don’t ever forget it it time to learn to love what you got and enjoy your life.
