  1. Where do people who are very small and petite buy clothing that fits? Our 22-yr old daughter is 5'2", very petite, weighs all of 100 lbs, and has a really hard time finding clothing that fits. Size 00 is typically too large. Petite clothing is too long and baggy for her body. Thankfully, body-skimming clothing is in style now, because it fits her well. She just can't find much that looks good. (She has two autoimmune conditions, so she is underweight, but the doctors are keeping close watch on her.)Petite Ankle-length jeans are full-length on her. - But she has an adult figure. She's the exact size of my great-grandmother! What stores do tiny people shop at to buy clothes? (I'm 5'6" and never had this problem!)

  1. I am not really sure. She could try junior petites if that exists as junior clothing tends to fit smaller than misses. Or, this isn't really fashionable, but has she tried children's clothes for the basics like jeans and tees? The only other option is to buy the petites and find a really good tailor/seamstress.

  2. I second the childrens idea. Some designer lines have very sophisticated kids lines now. When I was 18 I was still a very petite person and loved to shop at gap, limited, and jcrew kids stores, somtimes the clothes were even better than the adults for that season. I miss those days, cant do it anymore.
