The Nitty Gritty On: Offering Plus Size and Petite Size Clothing

 
 

Knowing women come in all shapes and sizes, don't you think you could grow your customer base by offering sizes up to 2x-3x?!
-Mary Beth Arredondo

This is a question that we get VERY often, the problem is, we offered 2X-3X for a year and we were left with overstock in sizes 2X and 3X. As much as we would love to have this option available, these sizes aren’t as popular. We’ve found that our highest demand size is large and XL so we make sure to have more stock of those sizes now that we are slowly transitioning into strictly our private label collection.

Will you ever offer Petite sized pants/dresses in the future? I'm a shorty!!
-Natalie Adkinson

Haha! That’s funny … seeing that I’m a whopping 5’2 and a size 12/14. What I’ve learned while designing clothes, is that I can’t cater to just the shorties, and through the years I’ve learned that typically anyone under the height of 5’5 just has to have alterations to wear all the cuteness in the world. As much as I would love to have a petite collection, that would be far down the road due to the amount we’d have to have manufactured. But, we can all keep hoping and wishing for it! Dreams do come true!! ;-)

Our palazzos are cut to length so anyone 5'8" can wear them! Just use really sharp scissors and cut one leg, one inch at a time, putting them on with what ever shoes you plan to wear them with after every cut. Once you reached the desired length, cut the other leg to match. These won't fray so you don't have to hem them afterwards.

    I noticed you still have a plus size model on your page for current stock. Is the size she is wearing XL or 2X?
