We were not exactly too surprised with […]

Tennessee Designer Relaunches Petite-Only Fashion Line

Share When Vogue Italia put three larger-than-normal models on its recent cover, both major media and bloggers were all over it (including this site), discussing whether Vogue did the right thing. Many complained about the fact that the models were wearing lingerie and not, say, evening gowns or casual wear. Many times, the excuse is […]

A Teachable Moment? Marie Claire Blogger’s Commentary on “Fat People”

ShareWhy can’t we discuss body issues? Fat talk is a big no-no, and small-framed talk is an even BIGGER faux pas! If I want to discuss issues with being a 00P (the P is there because I’m about 5’2″), then I’m pretty much told to shut up and “deal with it.” I’m NOT ALLOWED TO […]

The petite/non-standard challenge for media continues…

Share I created this video over a year ago, opening a challenge to major media regarding petite and other “non-standard” sizes.

Glamour’s Jenny Feldman: Petite Fashionista?

ShareI read senior style writer, Jenny Feldman’s blog over at Glamour from time to time and would respond to her posts. According to several of her posts, Jenny is 5’2″ and on the skinny side (she has pictures of herself on the blog, and I’d guestimate her to be a size 2 at most, but […]

Designer Wayne Lee in Vogue

Share As a designer, 5’1″ Wayne Lee (girl in white) works with models almost a foot taller than her.

Oh My God! You weigh WHAT???

ShareThe toughest part about being a skinny petite is weight. Oftentimes, when “normal sized” people somehow discover how much you weigh, they go into shock.
