(Image credit: @mixitupwithcurves)

Yes, sometimes shopping is fun and can provide some much-needed retail therapy, but everyone knows that shopping can also occasionally become a challenge. Never mind trying to find the perfect jeans (do they even exist?) but finding jeans—or any other clothing item for that matter—that come in the exact size and length for your body can often prove nearly impossible. This challenge is something we're pretty sure many people face, but it seems as though those who fall into both the plus-size and petite ranges have the fewest options. That's where we come in.

With the fashion industry woefully behind, we're still waiting on every brand to figure it out and get their sizing right. For now, though, some of our favorite brands are offering extensive sizes and lengths: from 2 to 18 and petite to tall. Those are the types of brands we love to shop from, and we've rounded up the seven that petite, plus-size girls love so that you can, too.

1. Madewell

We love a good inclusive brand, and Madewell is exactly that. With sizes ranging from petite to plus-size (and a combo of both!), Madewell successfully achieves stylish designs that fit women of all body types—no matter how tall or what size they are. That makes this brand an automatic favorite in our books. 

2. Lane Bryant

Lane Bryant is known for being a plus-size retailer, but fewer people are aware that it has a great petite section as well.


ASOS has an extensive petite section, with an equally extensive size range. Plus, it's incredibly affordable. This brand checks all the boxes.

4. Anthropologie

Thank goodness for Anthropologie. Not only does it truly understand how to design the perfect floral dress, but it also understands the need for a petite section with a wide arrange of sizes.

5. Alfani

Macy's has a surprisingly extensive assortment of plus-size petite brands, but one of the best is Alfani. With its collection of professional and stylish pants, you'll never be stuck without something to wear to work again.

6. Wit & Wisdom

Wit & Wisdom's famous Ab-Solution jeans are simultaneously stylish and shaping, which makes them a must-have in our books. Plus, they come in every combination of size and length, meaning they can be a must-have for everyone.

7. Halogen

Halogen is a favorite among plus-size women, and its inclusive lengths only make the brand better. Not to mention it makes sweaters that every fashion girl will want to have in her closet.
