For those of us who are petite, it can be a serious struggle to find clothes that don’t make you look like you’re playing dress up. Shirts can be so long that they veer into dress territory (don’t even ask how many times I’ve worn a crop top as a regular shirt), dresses fall to the only unflattering point (right at the knee); and shopping for pants is basically a joke. Never mind that we spend more time and money at the tailor in a month than most do in a year. Fun!

That means you’re not stuck shopping in the kids’ section for tees—or accidentally buying one with a slight glittery sheen that’s only visible once you’re home. True story.
