Tips Petite Women Can Use to Look Taller

Hey TLBC fans!

Although all our petite customers are not necessarily 5’4” and under, we know some of you are, and therefore, we decided to make a list of fashion tips and tricks that are sure to help elongate your small frame!

Of course, heels will elevate you to new heights, but if you want to wear the fashionable and trendy flats out there, choose a color that will give the illusion of an elongated body. For example, if you are wearing a short skirt, wear a nude flat to make your bare legs look longer. If you are wearing black pants, wear black flats. This will give the illusion of a couple more inches before the color hits the floor.

Tighter is better
Tighter clothing will emphasize your silhouette, ultimately helping you look taller. When you wear baggy clothing, you’ll see that your lines are not defined and will actually make you look shorter. If you have to wear the baggy lookm though, try tucking in your baggy shirt into tight jeans to at least give you a more defined waistline.

Avoid capri pants or crop shorts
If you are aiming to look taller, wearing capri pants or cropped shorts is unfornutately not the way to go. Instead of short shorts try Bermuda shorts, or shorts with a slightly longer leg. Knee-length or longer shorts will help make your legs have an overall longer appearance. Keep in mind that the same rule applies to skirts; those that end close to the ankles will make you look shorter, whereas those that end closer to the knee will help elongate the look of your legs.

The Little Bra Company!
Even though lingerie may not be seen on the outside, it definitely is the foundation to your entire outfit and is the piece of clothing that is the closest to your body. A bra with a good lift will create the illusion of a longer torso. All of The Little Bra Company’s small bras are specially engineered to create the perfect amount of lift and support for your petite frame. For sky-high elevation, The Little Bra Company recommends our best-selling Lucia bra, and our 5-star “ooh la la” padded Isis bra.

When done right, layering can help your body look a lot taller. There are several things that you will want to keep in mind if you plan to layer. Darker colored shirts should always go on the outside, as this is the color that people will be the most focused on. You should avoid layering ruffled shirts, mainly because they only add emphasis to the chest and neck area, rather than the rest of your body. Try out several shirts when layering to see what makes you look the tallest.

Long Shirts
Wearing shirts that are longer in length will make your torso look longer. This can add a few invisible inches to your body. Because longer shirts and layering is trendy this season, you will be able to find long shirts for all seasons. But keep in mind that tighter is better!

Compliment with bright colors
Is there a certain part of your body that you really want to emphasize? For example, let’s just say that you have shapely, slender legs. If you want to use your legs to make your whole body look taller, then you should try rocking some bright colored pants. If you have a slim stomach, you may want to emphasize it by wearing a brightly colored shirt.

No matter what your height is, stand tall. Wear clothes that make you feel good, because we guarantee if you feel good, you will look good no matter what you wear.
