238: Colour and Style Q&A: Petite, Caribbean Descent Body, and Stylish at 50s.

In This Episode

0.08 I’m 5 foot tall. Even where there are petite ranges, the ‘petite’ element seems only to apply to width, and not height as well. I know I’m well under the average, but I find it difficult to believe that a size 8/10 is likely to be for the same height person as a size 16/18. Plus sizes have whole ranges – petite seem only to be a percentage (and not a large one) of a store/line’s merchandise. Finding something that fits – it’s a challenge, and often dispiriting.
2.59 In light of the pandemic and my gaining more weight than losing it, I believe my shape has become an “O.”
I am of Caribbean descent and therefore have inherited more behind than hips. How should I take this into account when figuring out what to wear. I can’t seem to find anyone — either online or in books — who takes this into account. I don’t have wide hips just a big bodacious backside.
7.08 I’ve lost 70 pounds in the last eight months. I’m not sure I even know what is supposed to be stylish for someone that is in their 50’s.
