Sleeves being too long on a garment is a common problem for petites even when shopping in the petite’s section.  By investing in ¾ length sleeves items, it’ll be one less problem that you have to worry about. You’ll be free to shop in the petite friendly stores and petite stores.

¾ sleeves show off the slimmest part of your arm and shows off your favourite bracelet and watch.  There’s also no need to roll your cuffs up when doing the washing up which is an extra bonus!

If you decide to opt for a ¾ sleeve length coat, I’d recommend adding a pair of long gloves in the same colour as your coat to help lengthen your arms and keep you warm and toasty.

    where can I find the dress on the picture?

  • I wear tops with 3/4 length sleeves almost all time! II even pull up my sleeves if they’re full length. don’t know if its a petite thing or I just get tired of long sleeves.

    • Me too! It’s so hard to get long sleeves to fit, and it means that I don’t have to pull the sleeves up when I’m washing up or washing my hands!
