Our Style Experts Talk About How to Shop For Petite Dresses And Find Fits That Look Incredible On Shorter Frames.
Just because you’re short in height doesn’t mean you can’t aim high on style--especially when you’re wearing Leina & Fleur. One of the most common questions we get asked by women who are under 165 cm tall is whether our dresses will be too long on them. Our answer is always a resounding ‘NO’. It doesn’t matter if you’re small in stature: if you love the style of the dress, the print, the cut and the colour, then the length should not deter you.
"We may be small but we are strong. We wear the dresses, the dresses never wear us!”
