6 Dresses That Are Great For Petites...

Good Morning!
So I got a lot of requests about creating a post geared towards the petite gals, like me, and I wanted to round up 6 dresses that are great for more petite frames!
I'm 5'1/2" and around 101-2 pounds. My size in clothing is usually around xxs-xs sizes (depending on the brand) and usually have the hardest time finding dresses that are length appropriate. Sometimes I can make longer length dresses work by simply styling it with a belt (to shorten the length) or wear heels to make my legs look longer. Typically, dresses with tied or cinched waistlines definitely work for the petite frame, so today I've listed some of my absolute favorites that can work for those who are 5'4" and under!

Do note, that I do want to get more in depth with finding more petite appropriate pieces, but I thought today's post would be a good start :)


Off the shoulder polka-dot dress - wearing an xs - found the same dress for just $30!


gorgeous yellow tiered sun dress with smocked waistline - wearing an xs - only $25!
