Can’t reach the top of the cupboard? Still secretly shopping in the children’s section? Yeah, I’ve been there too. There are many struggles to being short (biscuit tin on the top shelf, I’m looking at you), but with the rise of petite ranges, buying dresses no longer has to be one of them. Made for those below 5ft 3in, it’s time to say goodbye to hems that finish past your ankles. So without further ado, here are the 10 best websites for petite dresses.
It’s famous for a reason. ASOS offers a huge (and I mean a fabric Mount Everest kind of huge) selection of dresses for us short and sweet bunch. A prom dress? Got it. A summer dress? Got it. A dress covered with pictures of your grandma’s cat? Probably got that too. May you never be without clothes again.
With a petite section to rival that of its main range, Miss Selfridge is the first spot to visit for your next dress purchase. If you’re quick, you can take advantage of their 70 percent off sale, where you can bag this gorgeous red classic for only £11. Well, unless I beat you to it.
Home to cutting edge trends, Topshop has plenty of petite dresses to keep your wardrobe in check. Whether you fancy a cute summer dress, a sporty tee, or a quirky statement piece, you’ll find it here. And to top it all off, they offer a 10 percent student discount.
Meet my latest obsession. If you, like me, have a soft spot for the body con, then may I present you with paradise. Yes, it may be tight. Yes, you might have to wiggle to get it on. But I can promise from the bottom of my heart, you will look absolutely awesome in it. So go on, treat yourself.
This up and coming favourite entered onto my radar after spotting the brand in Dorothy Perkins, and wow did it impress. With a range of petite cocktail, prom and evening dresses to make your mouth (and your bank balance) drop, you might spend all your money, but you’ll definitely look good doing it.
Speaking of Dorothy Perkins, they have their own range of petite masterpieces to splurge on. A go-to for that work dress you’ve always wanted; sophisticated city woman is Dorothy’s middle name.
If your purse is feeling a little light, Boohoo is the website for you. Not only do they have a large petite collection, but you can easily bag a gorgeous number for less than £15. Don’t believe me? Well this scallop hem dress is proof.
Remember the days of velvet trousers and velcro shoes? Well the likelihood is your parents bought them from Next. But it’s not just children’s clothes that the brand is known for. While their adult range has sometimes seemed on the frumpy side, in the last few years Next have upped their clothing game. Now boasting a section dedicated to chic and sophisticated petite garments, it’s a must visit on your next online shop.
9. New Look
In the last few years, New Look has expanded their collection of petite dresses to rival those of Topshop and Dorothy Perkins. The days of secretly shopping in Generation 915 (I know it’s for kids, but I’m short okay) are long gone. Plus, New Look is totally affordable, so it’s perfect for when the student loan is drying out.
Last, but certainly not least, is Very. A haven for board games, hoovers and even laptops, petite dresses are just one of the many things this online department store has to offer. If it’s good enough for Holly Willouby, it’s definitely good enough for me.
