Women who wear size XS or a Petite Size 2 or smaller know the challenge of finding affordable, stylish outfits. Save big by shopping  in the children’s department. Don’t worry–the outfits offered these days in the children’s department are far more fashionable that the duds your mother used to buy. Many children’s clothing lines feature fashion-forward items such as skinny jeans and classic oxford shirts. For your best bet, stick to brands that offer clothing for both women and children. Often, pieces from the children's line are almost identical to their grown-up counterparts.


Crewcuts is J.Crew's children's line. If you are petite and slim,  you may be able to fit into some of the larger Crewcuts sizes. For example, a Crewcuts girls’ size 14 is indicated for a female 4'10"-5'3", 90-112 lbs., with a 26" waist, 34" seat (hip), and a 32" bust (chest). By comparison, a J.Crew women’s petite size 2 is indicated for a woman under 5'4" with a 25" waist, 34" hip, and a 32.5″ chest. A women’s petite size 2 or smaller will likely match a Crewcuts girls’ size 14.
