I consider myself petite at barely 5′ with shoes on (technically 4′ 11 1/2″) lol.  HOWEVER, I have 36C boobs and somewhat of a butt (as in I def. don’t look 12 by “development” standards) haha.  Sometimes I feel like I look strange because I’m small, yet I have bigger features for my frame.  Its not just my boobs/butt either– I have a large-ish nose, full lips, and muscular thighs.  I’m pretty athletic and work out fairly regularly.  I’m 120 lbs, but I figure a lot of that is muscle (thinking positively :)).  Anyway, for what its worth, Fiance says I’m “perfectly proportional” so I try not to stress too much about my body ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m 5’3″, currently about 108lbs. I have plenty of hips and chest so I don’t consider myself skinny at all, but I have a small frame and bones. I’m pretty compact and can fit most everywhere. I can roll myself into a nice little ball and sleep in airplane seats etc ๐Ÿ™‚ I also have a a small face and facial features, so I can still look like a teenager at 35. Sometimes it’s bothersome, sometimes cool.

@Gerbera: I didn’t get any boobs in pregnancy! I stayed a size 32b the whole time. It was ridiculous. Nursing though gave me ginormous knockers ๐Ÿ™‚

@JennBug89: Omg, are you my identical twin? I have the exact same measurements!!! (well, bra size is between 34c and 36b, so you win there). Height, weight, build is the same as yours!

@Gerbera: Very true!

@Imagelicious: Hi twin!  I enjoy being small for the most part.  The only thing that ticks me off is trying to buy jeans because if they go over my hips/butt, then they are a mile too long!  Old Navy jeans (size 4 short) have become my best friends!

I consider myself petite at 5’3″, 34B, and though I’ve gained a stupid amount of weight for no reason in the past year, I’m usually around 120/125. I do always have a butt, though, so if I buy jeans with a regular length, I always have to roll them up.

@JennBug89: We have a store Reitmans here in Canada and they have Short pants and jeans. The store used to be not bad for work clothes until their sizes became bigger and bigger (I now comfortably fit into their smallest petit size 2) and they started putting stretch top for all of their pants instead of buttons and zippers. Thanks for the tip about Old Navy, I’ll check it out.

I am 5″3 and a half, I weight about a buck ten, give or take. I have 32 F or 34 Dirty Delete boobs and no butt or hips to speak of, and long legs for my midget body.

All I can say is thank GOD for the genius who started selling bikini pieces separately
