FITTING ROOM REVIEWS

 LOFT Lace Tee in lilac shaddow, size XSP
LOFT Lace Tee in lilac shaddow, size XSP (see size XXSP on StylishPetite)
Update 3/29/16: It's back in stock for Spring 2016! Buy it here

I tried on this pretty lace tee in both XSP and XXSP and both sizes fit me with size XSP being more loose and flowy and a little longer in length. I noticed that the sleeves are a bit snug in size XXSP (refer to this picture) and the sleeves were looser in the next size up. I love the pretty lace they used for this top and it's also available in whisper white which is an ivory color. The top runs one size bigger.

Size XSP measurements are as follows:

15.5" shoulders
11" arm circumference
36" bust (measured pit to pit)
44" circumference along the bottom hem
23" total length

 LOFT Lace Striped Top, size SP

Next up I tried on this lace striped top in sizes XSP (see it on me here) and SP. Size XSP fit me better in the arm holes but the length was too short and cropped. I believe I need this top in XXS regular for the extra length. I wish this shirt came in other colors since I tend to wear dark denim a lot come fall and winter and a navy top would blend in too much. I'd say this top runs true to size.

LOFT Lace Front Shell in silver coin, size XS regular
LOFT Lace Front Shell in silver coin, size XS regular

I saw this lace front shell online and I'm glad I was able to try this on in store first because XS regular is a petite friendly fit. Based on my fitting room try-on, I'd say that XS regular fits more like XS petite so I'd say that this top runs small. I like that this top is offered in three colors and it's perfect alone or worn under a cardigan or blazer.

 LOFT 3/4 Sleeve Sweater Tee, size XS regular
LOFT 3/4 Sleeve Sweater Tee, size XS regular

I love the half sleeves of this 3/4 sleeve sweater tee and the material is mid-weight so it's not see through and drapes well. It comes in three colors but it's such a nice basic top that I wish they offered even more colors to choose from. I tried on size XS regular which fits true to size if you prefer a loose, relaxed fit. I'm debating between size XXS or XS but I'm concerned the sleeves may be too tight if I take the smaller size.

 LOFT Brushstroke Silky Shirttail Tee, size XS regular

I tried on this brushstroke silky shirttail tee in size XS regular and it fits true to size so I would probably need this top in size XXS regular. I love the longer short sleeves and the fit is boxy but flowy so it'll be flattering as long as you get the right size.

 LOFT Striped Short Sleeve Dress, size XS regular

I was looking for this striped short sleeve dress in petites but they only had regular missy sizes at my local store. I am trying on size XS regular in the picture above which was a few inches too wide on me (refer to this picture here). Note that the regular missy length falls right above the knee caps on me. I'd say that this dress fits true to size and I would need the petite version for a more flattering length and fit. I don't care for the higher neckline so I'll probably pass on this dress. It's made of a thicker material so it will be perfect in the fall with tights.

 LOFT Relaxed Cardigan, size SP

I thought this boyfriend style relaxed cardigan was very versatile so I tried on SP which fits me really well. I actually sized up to SP because the arms are tighter in XSP. It drapes well and comes in three different colors.

 LOFT Mini Dot Shirred Dress, size 0 regular

Lastly, I tried on this mini dot shirred dress in size 0 regular. It doesn't yet come in petites online but size 0 regular is petite friendly and hits me at my natural waist. Based on my try-on, size 0 regular fits like size 0P. Note that I'm currently at my heaviest weight at 115 pounds which is why size 0 doesn't look as loose and flowy on me when compared to the online stock image.
