When my baby cousin graduated from college this spring, I decided to browse for suiting separates for her because she is petite (and if there's one thing I've become adept at through blogging, it is shopping for petite women). While I normally avoid gifting clothes (would not recommend; hurt feelings occasionally ensued), she and I have a relationship that can weather a shopping hiccup.
Regular sizes run 4-18 and extended sizes are available for petite (2P-16P), tall (6T-18T), and plus (16W-26W). Sizing is comparable to mass retailers like J. Crew and Ann Taylor (or approximately half a size larger than the norm) so those on extreme ends of the size spectrum will probably not have much luck here.
I'll be reviewing a few other sheath dresses from other retailers in the coming months but this one is a clear winner if you are looking for something basic.
