FIT GUIDE: Tall and Petite Sizes to the Rescue

 

Did you know we have petite and tall sizes in three of our BEST-SELLING leisure pieces? Yep, that's right! We sell tall sizes in our Jumpsuits, Jetsetters and Joggers and Petite sizes in our Jumpsuits & Jetsetters! Our sizes range from XXS Petite to XL Tall. We also carry one-piece swimsuits that are ideal for short torsos, as well as medium to long torsos! If you only take away one thing from reading this blog post, remember that size should never keep you from getting exactly what you want at Albion. We're here to help and want EVERYONE to feel confident, cozy and chic in our clothes, regardless if you're 5'2" or 6'2". Keep scrolling to see some of our favorite people wearing these must-have Albion products! 

PETITE - 5'3" & Under!

We recommend everyone under 5'4" to choose petite Jumpsuits & Jetsetters. However, we do have several customers that are 5'4" or 5'5" that choose petite sizes so the zippers hit their leg a little higher. It absolutely depends on your style and comfort level. As far as Joggers go, we don't have "petite" sizes so we recommend XXS or XS, as they tend to run a size or two small. 

Sweet Mary Kate Robertson (@marykaterob) who is 5'3" is shown here wearing a size Small - Petite Granite Jumpsuit. As you can see, this jumpsuit is one of our most versatile pieces. Whether you're dressing it up for a night on the town or wearing it adventuring like our friend here, you'll feel comfortable and classy! 

Beautiful Zoe (@zoelaz) who is 5'3" is shown here wearing size XS - Petite Black Jetsetters. We like to call these, the "everyday everywhere" pant because you can wear them at home on a casual night in or spice them up with a bomber jacket and high heel booties. 

Say hello to one of our dear friend's Makenna (@makenna_alyse) who is 5'5" shown here wearing size XS in our ultra cozy Oatmeal Joggers. Once you try them on, you'll be convinced that these joggers are the ultimate sweatpants, guaranteed to provide comfort on even the worst days. While these joggers don't come in "petite" sizes, we included this section because our joggers tend to run a size or two small. As a rule, we recommend sizing down no matter how tall you are. 

Our sweet friend Zoe (@zoelaz) once again, who is 5'3" shown here wearing our beautiful and sporty Pana Stripe Bombshell One-Piece Swimsuit in a size XS. This suit is designed to fit women with shorter torsos perfectly! It's made with just the right amount of sass. Ps. For all you cute mamas out there, it's a fabulous suit for nursing! 

TALL - 5'7" & Up!

We recommend everyone over 5'7" to choose Tall Jumpsuits & Jetsetters, especially if you want the cuff of the bottoms to hit just above your ankle. These pieces slim and lengthen your feminine figure and we highly recommend them to tall gals! 

Our good friend Tiffany (@tiffanypliler) who's around 5'7" is shown here wearing a size Small - Tall Black Jumpsuit. Girl, this fits you like a glove! Once again, you see that these jumpsuits can be worn on any occasion! Pair them with boots, sandals or converse, like Tiffany here! 

Stunning Sal (@salomeandreaa) who is 5'8" is shown here wearing size Small - Tall in our Sage Jetsetters. Hitting just above her ankle, these comfy pants are the perfect fit! And how beautiful does that color look against her skin? Win win. 

Darling Julianna (@julianna_claire) who's around 5'7" is shown here wearing size Medium - Tall At Ease Joggers. They're cozy, snug and show off all those feminine curves you love. In this photo, Julianna proves that while these are sweatpants, they can easily be dressed up and worn out. You go girl! 

We can't get over Shelby (@shelby.kleiman) who is around 5'7" shown here wearing size Small in our classic, slimming Paradise Found One-Piece Swimsuit, which is one of our many Weekender styles. This swimsuit is known for accentuating your feminine curves, while still maintaining a modest, sporty look. The adjustable ties in back make this the perfect suit for medium to long torsos. 

THINK YOU'RE TOO TALL?

No no no! We've had customers in that past, say that they're just too tall for our classic, sporty Jumpsuit, but the fact is that this jumpsuit looks amazing on ALL body types and sizes! One of our most beautiful AND tall girl crushes is Tessa (@tezzamb) who's 6 feet tall and let us tell you, no one rocks a jumpsuit quite like her! See below for yourself!

If you're ever wondering what size is best for you, if you should choose a petite or tall size OR if you're wanting some general shopping advice, let us help you! We offer a live chat feature on our website and have a team devoted to making our customers feel good and get everything they want! Hope to hear from you soon! 

xoxo,

Katie
