If there’s one universal struggle the majority of us face while shopping, it’s finding a fit that’s just right for you. Bodies don’t come in the standard sizes that most stores stock their inventory with, so whether you’re curvy, have a larger bust, or are shorter or taller than the “average” woman, we all face similar challenges. Petite women are often just expected to tailor their clothes to fit, but Stature, a brand-new e-commerce store, feels your pain and has worked to curate collections aimed at “the vertically challenged.”
Stature was founded by Avani Agarwal and Camille Moroz, two petite ladies who get that buying generic XS or S sizes just don’t cut it. They’ve worked with independent designers to bring you clothes that are tailor made with smaller frames in mind, so everything from torso length to the armholes to a correct ankle-to-leg ratio has been considered for ladies 5’4″ and under.
Stature doesn’t just source already available petite-sized items; they’ve gone the extra step and collaborated with designers to customize some of their best sellers to be “Sized for Stature” specifically, like the Dusen Dusen Oversize Tee Dress ($302). Their jumpsuits, like the Wray Acacia Jumpsuit ($180), particularly stand out, since petite girls know just how frustrating it can be to find jumpsuits that you aren’t swimming in. Stature also has a collection of shoes in sizes five and six, which are often not that easy to come by.
The fit guide is especially helpful, with directions on how to measure yourself like a pro to ensure you get the best fit. They’ve also included a portfolio of the models and their specific measurements, so you can get a sense of how measurements translate to the actual clothes. Short ladies, unite!
