Q. Can you please recommend a few designers whose clothes are cut smaller? Tahari fits me like a glove, but is pricey. I am thirty-nine years old with three children, do not want to shop in the Juniors dept., but finding the right fit in anything is a real challenge. I find that most Petite departments are frumpy and provide just the basics. How about something fun? I wear size 0 pants at Banana Republic and size 2 at the Gap. Oh, and did I mention I prefer the fitted look?
A. I’m the same size and I, too, have a problem finding clothes that fit. My best finds, besides Theory and Tahari, have been Joie, Club Monaco, Benetton and Vince.
