Petite women are the future of fashion. The realization is the majority of women are 5’6″ tall and under.

The average size woman is 5’3″ in the US.  

Most clothing designers do not use petite models in advertisements. We understand that the fashion business is more psychological and placing images of the actual women that would buy the clothes would be a hit.

Simply stated petite women possess the largest segment of buying power for fashion. We have done the math. 

“Proper consumer education and our consistent dedication have raised awareness.”

The overwhelming majority of fashion designers will never get the message. And that’s okay because once again we will lead the fashion industry by launching Ann Lauren Clothing On-Demand exclusively petite fashion. The future of fashion has arrived!

  1. This article was very informative. I am encouraged about retailer’s designing more petite lines. As a petite woman it is frustrating not to be able to find petite clothing. It’s clear that the petite fashion industry had come around!

  2. Great article it goes to prove that the fashion industry understands they need to focus on petites. I want to read more articles like this. I hope BellaPetite continues their efforts and helps create opportunities for petite women. Keep it coming!

    1. Hello Cris: For your information I began my career as a "working petite model" with Ford Models Little Womens Division (now defunct) , and later I signed on with Endeavor both LA based agencies. In addition, I started producing the first and only nationally televised fashion events for petite models in the 90's with the William Morris Agency for talent. As a result, I have extensive contacts in the fashion and entertainment industry. For more information you can read my bio at Also, please note the link at the bottom of the page I provided in the article to support my conclusions and additional information for readers. We welcome your comments and feedback!
      Thanks for your questions.
