PetitePlusStyle is taking a short break

lovely item and lovely seller... very accommodating! hope to do biz w/her in the future.
Once upon a time, while browsing in the Land of Etsy...
...a sumptuous woman of shorter-than-average stature came upon a tiny shop called “Petite Plus Style: Beautiful plus-sized apparel for women under 5’ 3" / 160 cm."
“Surely, this be jest!” she thought, knowing that no clothiers in all the land made apparel specifically for people like her. So she entered the shop, and there, standing before her, was a dazzling and stylishly appointed woman.
“Who are you?” asked the visitor.
“I am your Zaftig Godmother! I adorn in splendid apparel all women of shorter-than-average stature who have—everyone should be so lucky—a little extra put aside for a rainy day. I am in charge of global gorgeous-ness, so I personally see to it that the outside is every bit as fetching as the beauty on the inside of every woman. Come in, come in, sit, eat!”
“Am I dreaming?” said the woman, pinching herself, but hoping she would not wake up.
“No, you’re not dreaming, and quit pinching yourself! ‘Petite Plus Style’ is where you belong, finally, like family!"
And so the woman sat and had coffee, and sent text messages by carrier pigeon to all her diminutive plus-sisters, who came, shopped, and lived happily, audaciously, and stunningly ever after.
A note about sizes:
Retail ready-to-wear sizes are, as you have no doubt noticed, completely random, making them less than useful. That is the principal reason I don’t use them.
Also, a size is just a number—a reference point—and if it has to have emotional connotations, they ought to be positive ones. I have created an innovative and novel system for determining good fit.
This is how it works: because each of us is exquisite, I have chosen names of goddesses to represent a range of body measurements. Both are clearly stated on every listing to prevent the guessing game as well as the annoying “where is the size chart?” hunt.
The best way to ensure good fit is to take your measurements before you order, even if you think you know them. Just do it: it is only a mark on a tape, and you are doing it to determine which fetching goddess to look for when shopping!
I hope this system will be transformative and will remind each of us every day what amazing women we are. Please feel free to contact me via the Etsy convo tool or by email at email@example.com with any questions. xox, Sandra

In my experience, most retail ready-to-wear apparel shrinks to a point of uselessness after laundering, and I find that maddening. I always pre-treat my fabrics before the shears come anywhere near them, so I guarantee that they will not shrink more than 1 inch in length or you can return it for a full refund at any time in the future. Shrinkage in width is not generally an issue, but my guarantee stands for that as well.
