What is Petite?


What is petite? Simply, if you’re 5’4” or shorter then you’re petite. The common misconception is petite women are small and skinny. We’ve even had tall women come up to us and ask if they’re petite, because they’re slim. But it doesn’t matter what size or shape you are, as long as you’re short: 0 and stick straight, 6 and apple shaped, 14 and coke bottle figured – all petite, all the time. And no, you’re not alone: 49% of America is 5’4” or shorter.

About Us

Adela Mei is a carefully curated online boutique dedicated to contemporary petite fashion. We believe that the best things come in small packages and select in-season designer ready-to-wear pieces that are well-suited for a petite frame. We are Sasha Moyer and Stacy Leung, based in San Francisco. We look forward to sharing our unique aesthetic with you.

Our Story

After years spent on pricey alterations and discouraging shopping trips, we knew there had to be a better solution for fashion-loving petites like us. The designer clothes we loved didn’t always love us back. Inspired by our tiny fashion-forward grandmothers Adela and Mei, we wanted to create a place that made shopping a fun and easy experience for other petite gals like us.
