My go-to technique for purchasing loungewear or athletic wear that actually fit my petite legs properly was to buy leggings that were the Capri length. Capri length leggings are obviously designed to cut off mid-way through your calf, but if you have short legs like me, then they cut off at your ankle perfectly like a normal pair of leggings would on your average leg length.
Luckily, many popular brands today have begun to produce clothing in petite lengths as well as standard, & long! You can check out a few of my favorites, by price range, below!
Asos Petite: Asos is one of my favorite online retailers to buy from, they sell every article of clothing imaginable, but their loungewear & athleticwear selection is full with every size, fit & style you could possibly need!
Aerie: Aerie is known for its iconic loungewear, but what I have recently discovered & fallen in love with are their 7/8 fit leggings! These particular leggings have an inseam that is slightly shorter than their standard cut, which is perfect for Petites, & they actually make your legs appear longer!
Sweaty Betty: Sweaty Betty also offers leggings in the 7/8 fit! This brand is a bit more of a splurge with leggings ranging from $70-$150 & they are absolutely worth it!
Beyond Yoga: Beyond Yoga is one of my top brands for athletic leggings! The material is like no other. It’s soft like a cotton legging but think & non-see-through like your typical spandex pair but without the uncomfortable fit. They do not have a style that is specifically geared towards Petites, but I am 5’2″ with short legs & the Capri style fits like a dream! They also have 7/8 fits as well!
I hope you found these suggestions helpful! As always, please let me know what your petite shopping techniques are!
