Perfect for Petites

We often have customers requesting us to make more styles for petites. Although we do not carry designated petite styles, we have a few tops to suggest that look great on smaller frames.

Our classic Boxy Tank is great for petite ladies and if you look for a relaxed fit, this tank also has a cropped hemline that falls at the “normal” length on a petite frame. It’s also available in prints, like Rainbow Aquarium, several graphic styles, and Extra Fresh.

There are several petite ladies at our office who look fabulous in the Butterfly Top! If you enjoy a draped top with a cropped hemline that doesn’t swallow you, wear this with a pair of skinny or boot cut jeans, or even a short skirt. It’s a top sure to bring compliments and make you feel both fashionable and comfortable.

Another top that looks wonderful on petite frames is the Classic Stripe Henley, now available in Extra Fresh, as it is a bit shorter and can be worn with 3/4 sleeves or rolled up to a half sleeve to flatter your waist.

We also recommend the Cantina Tank as a petite style. The hemline is longer, which is good for wearing with leggings or cropped shorts and it has a relaxed fit good for layering or warmer days. Also, our Golightly Oxford is the perfect length for average to shorter women. It’s also a slimmer fit, but it will not be completely tailored.

    I got so excited when I saw the email about petites. I love your product but cannot order many of your designs, particularly dresses as I am under 5’2 and need the petite length. Thanks so much for thinking of us and would love to see you offer a real petite line.
    Thanks

    How about some petite length pants/capris????? I can only wear peddle pushers because the regular pants are way too long and I don’t want to pay to have them shortened after paying a premium for your great clothes. Also, need more colors in capris XS, which I can wear, although too long.

    Thanks!

    Horizontal stripes on petites? Maybe if you’re a size 2!

    Please, please bring back the “Ready, set, go skort” It is I live in most of the year.

    Why not make “designated petite styles”? Though Fresh Produce is my favorite clothing, I cannot buy anything with long sleeves or full-length pants, because those items are way too long on me. Even short sleeve shirts that are not cropped are way too long on me. I am 5’3″; surely there are many others with the same problem. It seems odd that you make plus sizes, but no petites!

    Wow … thank you for the petite tips. I recently bought your swing capri at a fp store which comes right to my ankles … and baja vintage sl. Please consider making actual petite sizing options. So thankful for your clothing line 🙂

    I was so excited when I saw that you were offering Petite sizes now. BUT that excitement was short lived. Making tops that look good on Petite frames is not the same as petite clothing. We need syles and sizes specifically made for Petites. I am just about 5′ tall and also have short arms so it is very difficult to find clothing that fits and looks good. And I agree one of the above comments that said “forget the horizontal stripes”. I love Fresh Produce clothing but I can never find tops or bottoms that fit me. You used to carry tops with lycra in them which helped a lot but I can no longer find those in your stores.
