Weight? Height? Size?
5'3" and under... that's what the stores always say, at least.
Petite it is then! unk: ( 5'2 )
I go by sewing pattern classifications. Petites patterns are for women 5'3" and under. Average is 5'3-57, Tall is 5'7 and up.
That's a pretty general rule of thumb. I have a friend who is 5'8 and actually does best with "average" proportioned patterns, and I knew a girl in college who fell squarely into the "average" height category, but had such a long torso that she was better off with "tall" proportioned clothing. She would buy dresses from the tall women's ranges at the shops and have me take the skirts up a couple of inches for her.
Under 5"3, size 4 and under.... OMG I'm petite!
How embarassing! I've been shopping in the wrong section
I'm 5'6" and I sometimes shop in the petite section.
So I AM petite (5'2'' and size 2). I still shop in juniors though cuz I'm only 19.
im 5 8 or 9 and a size 2
A person who is skinny usually, maybe small framed also.
I go generally by height because I am not a small size like size 2 or anything but I need petite jackets sometimes to fit me in the shoulders because mine are small. It just depends on the brand and whatever works for you
I'M tall?!? [/b][/quote]
That's what I thought. Now I'm happy...

I'm 5'7... I always considered that medium height for a girl... above average but not tall. Tall for a women is usually 5'8 sometimes but usually 5'9 and up.
yeah, i dont think 5'7 is tall at all .
as for the topic...i think petite is 5'6 and under and size 4 and under as well.
anyone less than 5 feet and 60 pounds is petite
I'm fairly petit and I'm just about 6ft now...I guess it depends what you mean by petit...
