I'm just wondering. I've never really known my dress size because its like growing up my mom was short so were family members on her side so I've never really thought they existed really. But like what do women under 5 ft wear when it comes to dress sizes. I've heard a 0 for an average sized person the body measurements have to be at least a 31/33-23/25-33/35. What would a woman with smaller size get when it comes to dress sizes? Like what if she's 31-23-33 and 4'11" and 93 lbs. what dress size would that be what's less than 0? I've tried a double 0 it worked for me but I'm 5'1" and 101 lbs 36.5-24-33. So what dress sizes are for shorter women? Like below 5 ft?

Is there a reason why you can't go to a store and try on dresses to see which ones fit you?

Such a random question to people who can't even see you...

There are a host of different body sizes and shapes...giving your height and weight does not help.

Go to a store and start trying things on. Even then, you will find different sizes from different brands will fit. Sizing is subjective and can depend on the brand and where the clothing was manufactured.

With your short stature, you may be able to find some nice fitting clothing in the Junior section of most stores. You could even try the children's section of some stores, or look into items with a "P" (for petite) on the label (clothing, generally, made for ladies under 5'2").

For these type of women I was talking about they don't fit even a 0. Most of the time I can't either. The only 0 I fit was one from an old resident that was a teen.

Yeah both me and my mom got dresses in the children's department. And it fit. The thing is the style isn't made for people with a woman's structure. Junior again is too small well at least from what I found.

Then you DO know your size!
So why say " I've never really known my dress size" ??

You are a Petite size, for starters. Are you saying that the smallest Petite size is too big for you?

It's not really my size since its not designed for my figure children don't have usually D cups or feminine contour they're shaped like rectangles. So it's tailored for them instead of for women like me.

All the more reason you will probably need to go get fitted / sized. Sounds like you are going to be hard to fit and items directly off the racks may not be something you can do.

I would suggest finding a seamstress in your area that is able to alter clothing for you. If may be that you'll have to buy clothing that fits in the bust and then have the rest of the dress fitted.

Yeah well I've gone to general stores for petit they really didn't seem different from women's that much. But then again maybe I'm at a cheap store.
