The package arrived at my door the very next day with a cute little note. Bebe has been around forever. We are all familiar with what they have to offer. I received these items two months ago when their petite line first launched. I know people say not to wear white after Labor Day, but the purpose of this review is to (hopefully) give you guys some useful information regarding the petites fit vs. the standard fit. Below are the items they sent me. At the time, these were the smallest sizes they carried.
What I am wearing:
Jacket: Bebe Petite Hooded City Suit Jacket in 00R (buy it here)
Cami: Lace Trim Seamless Cami in SP (buy it here)
Trouser: Bebe Petite Wide Leg in 2P - Waist taken in (buy it here)
Necklace: Lia Sophia (buy it here)
Hair Extension: 22" Straight Hair Extension by Jessica Simpson (buy it here)
Hooded City Suit Jacket in 00RThis jacket is so adorable. It is very different than anything I have in my closet. As you can see from the stock photos, it has a detachable hood. It can be worn without the hood for conservative environments or with the hood for less formal environments.
Fit: 00R is slightly too tight on me. I can barley button it across the chest. I do think 0R would be a perfect fit for me. Although, I love the ¾ sleeves
Lace Trim Seamless Cami in SPI love this cami. It’s so comfortable to wear because of the super stretch material. It also has adjustable straps which are a plus for petites. Pintuck ribbing runs down the center and sides and lace trim finishes the hem. This is a great piece to layer beneath a sweater or jacket!
Fit: Because of its stretchy material, the fit is great. The total length is 20.5 inches which is a great length for petites.
Petite Wide Leg Trouser in 2PI received these pieces two months ago when their petite line first launched. Therefore, the selection was very limited. The smallest size available back then was 2P for this trouser. I have no doubt in my mind that they are going to be enormous on me. Sure enough, the waist is too big on me. I forgot to snag some before photos. I know all I need is a simple alteration job to have the waist taken in. Believe it or not, this is my first experience ever with alterations. My Mom fixed all my clothes previously. I know I am spoiled. She said no this time because the pants are 100% lined. I know it would take her forever to alter these pants unless I harass her every weekend.
Take a look below for comparisons between regular sizes and petites sizes. Based on those measurements, do I need petites sizes? Not really. Size 00R would be a better choice for me since I would need regular length with a smaller waist. Although, for some of you who are smaller than me, petites sizes will probably work out better for you guys.
Overall, I am enjoying this outfit so much (although the linen wrinkles like crazy). Too bad I can’t wear them again until next year. Bebe has added much more to their petite line within last month. So be sure to check it out. Stay tuned for a small giveaway later this week.
Disclosure: I included the barcodes just in case you’d like to call the stores and check on your sizes. The jacket and trousers are on a major sale right now. I received all items in this review courtesy of Bebe. As always, my reviews are my personal opinion. I will not be compensated for posting this review on my blog.
