I know right?

So take a peek at a few options that I rounded up for us to play in, for that Petite Plus Sized Valentine’s Day outing! You ready? Take a peek…

Here are 9 Petite Plus Valentine’s Day Options!

Romantic Dinner

Galentine’s Day

Planning a Galentine’s get-together?  Try a short, sassy, flirty number like one of these lace dresses from Forever 21+.  While F21+ doesn’t offer petite plus options, I personally find that their junior’s plus size fit works well on petite proportions.  These two dresses would likely require no alterations, but could both be taken up at the waist if you prefer a shorter fit.

What do you think about these options? Even though retailers that offer petite plus options are still few and far between, especially for items like dresses, I rely on altering non-petite options, but petites and custom pieces are always going to work better if you have a smaller frame.  Thankfully, petite plus size options are expanding, and if you’re patient, it’s definitely possible to find stylish and fun options!

A Few Petite Plus Size Shopping (and altering) Tips:

  • When shopping non-petites, look for shorter hemlines, even tunics.  These can be worn as dresses in many cases.
  • A mini dress might be a midi on you!
  • Sleeveless options are easy to alter as taking up the straps on a sleeveless dress is a simple and inexpensive fix.
  • If you think an item will need to be hemmed, look for plain or simple hemlines or simple linings on sheer dresses for the simplest (and cheapest) fix.

What do you think of my round-up?  Anything catching your eye?  What are YOU planning for Valentine’s Day?
