This is a really helpful article! At 5'2 and almost 17 I don't imagine that I'll be growing any taller. I'm almost non-existant without my wedges (i tend to have problems with heels). I like the contrasting material in garments, I never thought about that!

While I can't realistically wear big heels all the time, I do like a little heel even with casual looks. And I agree, layering on short gals is hard!

DIY skills are so essential to being petite it's ridiculous! Almost all of my dresses come with straps that are an inch too long, thank goodness it only takes a few minutes to adjust and sew. Love this article, I'm 4' 11"! :]

this is one of the most helpful articles yet crystal! i'm only 5'3" but sometimes i can fool the camera into thinking i look a lot taller with the right pieces. i learned a lot from sybil!

TheStyleVoyager is so chic! I'm about 5'3'' but I do love wearing ruffles and stripes :P Great tips though!! Like 01honey mentioned, it would also be great if there were some tips for those who are short but curvy like me!! :)

it's always great to have some one that is in the same problem zone with clothes as you- 5 1" and not getting taller unless I throw on my heels. Ah what would a petite without her platform heels!

great tips--i'm not exactly tall, 5'4" is leaning on the short side. all my jeans bunch up at the ankles! style icon kryz would have been a good example for this article too. she is 5'2" but somehow looks runway model tall in all her photos. you have the most helpful and interesting EIU posts! great job!

Thanks for this article, there are great tips for us petite persons ;) Too sad I'm so into ruffles and stuff... but I think it's also about the placement of the ruffles ;)

totaly agree with all these tips!! l usually feel a bit strange when l show more skin (especialy by wearing mini skirts) but then l remember l'm petite and I NEED them to look tall. :)) if l'm not wearing something short, then l use the V neck too. classic timeless pieces were always my favourite! great new post, dear!!<3 +1xx

This is a great article! Petite sizes are generally those who are 5'4" or below, right? But what if you're petite but on the plump/curvy side? Sybil herehas a small frame but she has great lines. What about the petite curvy ladies?

I agree! i'm 5'2" but I got curves! i am far from slim...
