Men Prefer Petites Scientific Study Reveals!

Why Men Love Petite Women…

“Petite women with long legs are the most sexually attractive to men, scientists claim.”

“Females such as Scarlett Johansson, Raquel Welch, and Marilyn Monroe with short slender bodies, large busts and slim limbs have the ideal body shape, according to research.

Females such as Scarlett Johansson, Raquel Welch, and Marilyn Monroe with short slender bodies, large busts and slim limbs have the ideal body shape, according to research.”

“Dr. William Brown, of Brunel University, which carried out the study, said: ‘We found that shorter, slimmer females with long slender limbs and larger breasts are more attractive.”

“Small is beautiful: The study reveals that men find women like Scarlett Johansson, Marilyn Monroe and Rachel Weisz, with long legs, small frames and bigger busts, more attractive because they have low ‘body masculinity.”

“Body symmetry is important to what men and women find aesthetically pleasing in each other, the research suggests.

Previous studies had demonstrated that those with facial features that are symmetrical – so the left and right sides of the face match – are more attractive to the opposite sex.

But the relationship between body symmetry and attractiveness has been less clear. In the Brunel research, both men and women reported that symmetric bodies were more attractive than asymmetric ones.

The scientists claim, however, that we do not notice symmetry in the body directly, but instead look for much more obvious signs of attractiveness such as height, leg length and shoulder definition.”


Petite Tips: Look Taller Without the Heels


Every petite wishes for a small growth spurt! For me, I dream of standing at the great 5 foot 4 inches. Oh, how amazing it would be to stand a little taller. Here are a couple tips that can help you achieve a taller look!

1.Wear All One Color

This may sound odd, but it works wonders. Dressing head-to-toe in one solid color creates the illusion of length. The proportions are not broken up, so it hides your natural waist. This makes you look longer! The color black is great for this idea. If I am feeling edgy, I will wear black jeans, a great pair of boots and a leather jacket! Not only is black slimming, it also is an easy way to look taller!

2.High-Waisted Everything!

I say everything, because I am such a fan of high-waisted bottoms. I know, I know. Some people may have horrible flashbacks to…

The Perks of Being Petite


Let’s face it, we all have wanted legs like a Victoria’s Secret model. I would love to wake up in the morning, look in the mirror and see the proportions of Malibu Barbie looking back at me.

I am five foot one inch. I am busty. I have features that may not be considered perfect. And that, my friends, is okay by me. Whether you are petite, tall, curvy, etc, your body is your body, and it is wonderful. I spend a lot of time looking for ways to look taller or skinnier, but I want to take a minute to focus on  positive things about being a petite.

Here are some of the perks of being a petite woman!

1. High Heels

My best friend is 5 foot 11 inches. We are on opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to how we shop for clothing. I buy pants…

Look of the Week


The look of the week, this week, is a pretty pink skirt, navy blue button-up, tailored shirt, with matching hat and belt. I chose this look this week because it is one that is soft, lovely, timeless. The baby pink skirt is high-waisted and pleated all around. The pleats are soft and elegant, so I guess they’re today’s updated version of the “uptight” pleats. The soft pink compliments the navy blue, quite well. It is a very muted pink, so it’s perfect for fall. The belt is really nifty, with it’s design on the front, and exact match to the skirt and hat. The hat is a trilby hat, with a pink bow wrapped around the top of the hat, again, giving that “soft” feel to the look. The model’s shoes are black and white peep-toe heels, but there are so many options of shoe color that would look smashing! From tan, camel, off-white, navy, and more… I’m sure this outfit is an easy look to pull off! It just takes a nicely-fitted shirt, flowy skirt, matching accessories, and you’ve got my Look of the Week! Don’t forget the hat! It’s what makes the outfit POP!

 Don’t forget to wear your hair down, with lots of soft, curly locks. This is crucial for pulling off this look as “soft”, instead of just another skirt and shirt outfit. It’s all in the details! Accessorize til your heart is content!


The Headache Of Petite Fashion

Petite Fashion

“Think fashion model and most imagine underweight, unrealistic versions of the female form.

There’s nothing new about the argument that fashion’s stereotypes pander to a body image that is neither common nor healthy, underlining, again and again, the bizarre notion that there is one body shape to which you, me, we should aspire.”

“But in the drive to rebalance the industry – plus-sized models, anti-airbrushing, commitments to only employ models with certain BMIs – there is a body-shape group that still finds itself somewhat ostracised by fashion at large.”

“Enter the more diminutive in stature amongst us.

Nicole Richie, standing at 152cm (5’1″) is well within the criteria for being officially ‘petite’. Referring to height only, the petite label applies to anyone who is under 162cm (5’4″).

The socialite and designer told British Elle that she avoids online shopping because she has such problems finding clothes that fit her tiny frame.”


The Big Idea? Catering to Booming Petite Market

“Actress Cheryl Ladd has appeared in more than 50 TV shows, series and features, and made it to the cover of multiple magazines. But when she goes shopping, she has a hard time finding clothes that fit.”

“That’s because at 5-feet, 4-inches tall, Ladd is considered petite. And her struggle to find clothes her size is a plight she shares with the 43 percent of American women who are also petite, according to data from marketing information company NPD Group.”

“When the average height is maintained at 5’6″, most of the women in India fall under this elfin group.

Let’s keep this short but sweet. It’s not easy to dress in up-to-the-minute fashion if you’re around the five foot mark.

“It isn’t for lack of available advice. Experts say shorties should steer clear of tight clothing, but also avoid overly baggy clothing. They should wear high heels, but not clunky shoes. Vertical lines, V-necks and straight pants seem to work well. Hem lines should show leg, but not cut the thigh too high. And what’s the best look — preppy petite, diminutive city hipster, mini-yet-funky, sweet and small? The many rules and options are often conflicting and confusing.”

An Easy Guide to Cool Color Combos

“Whether it’s neon, neutral, pastel or monochrome, color conveys the tone of your design and helps visually illustrate a story by evoking mood and feelings. Combining these color combos is often the hardest part, in this post we show you how to bring together the correct hues and apply them bringing harmony to your designs.”



How To Dress When You’re Petite


“In principle these guidelines will work for anyone who is short in height, or for those who want to appear longer or leaner in their appearance. These guidelines also work well for those whose upper body is almost the same length as their lower body. In that case the aim is to make the lower body appear longer.”

“When you are short in height you will usually have the following objectives with your dressing:

-Appear longer
-Create a flattering silhouette (using the rule of thirds, so you don’t split your body in half)
-Avoid boxyness”


How to be Confident when You Are Petite

“If you’ve got to look up to everyone you meet, your confidence can be gradually shaken. But there’s no reason for that to be so. You can be petite, confident, and proud of your smaller self.”
