Petite is having a small and attractively dainty build.

Down is a fine thermal insulator and padding, used in goods such as women's outerwear.  The down of birds is a layer of fine feathers found under the tougher exterior feathers.  Very young birds are clad only in down.  The loose structure of down feathers traps air, which helps to insulate against heat loss.

Down insulation is rated by fill power, which is the number of cubic inches displaced by a given ounce of down (in3/oz).

A jacket is a mid-stomach–length garment for the upper body.  A women's down jacket is a quilted jacket filled with down feathers.

The down fill of a jacket will be either goose down, duck down or a combination of the two. Goose down is often regarded as the warmest and lightest but duck down jackets, or jackets with a combination, are often cheaper.

Ladies petite down jackets come in petite sizes.

When shopping for petite fashion, you may want to consider the following.

  • Tailored for your 4'11" - 5'4" frame
  • Shortened sleeve, inseam & torso
  • Styled for flattery
  • Constructed for comfort
  • Perfectly proportioned for your petite frame

Average female sized clothing is designed for a woman at least 165 cm (5 ft 5 in) tall (without shoes) and will not properly fit a woman of significantly shorter height. Even if the bust, waist and hip circumferences are appropriate, the sleeve lengths, leg inseam lengths and vertical torso measurements (such as the back length and bust-waist length) will most likely need to be altered significantly to fit well. Non-petite size dresses cannot be easily altered to produce the equivalent petite size, since, in general, these lengths (particularly the critical torso measurements) cannot be altered without introducing an unsightly seam to the garment. Significant errors in the torso measurements will make a well-fitted look impossible, e.g., if the bust-point darts are off by three inches. In addition to its measurements, a petite-size garment may have a different design from those intended for taller women. For example, style elements may be added to give a longer, slimmer look, e.g., vertical stripes, princess seams, short skirts, large patterns or patterns arranged helically around the whole body.
