Dresses That Run Small: Diane von Furstenberg

The queen of crazy prints and wrap dresses loves to design in a stretchy silk jersey, that in size 0, is often cut very small! I picked up a few DVF silk jersey dresses at Barney’s Warehouse Sale (for $50 vs. full retail of $345!), and each one was so incredibly tiny, I even briefly considered sizing up!

Wrap dresses are usually a good bet for a tiny petite because the garment can be wrapped tightly around even the tiniest of waists. The DVF wrap dresses I found were sized perfectly, and even a non-wrap dress in size 0 was a good fit.

I got the dresses hemmed to the knee, and now they are some of my favorite wardrobe staples. DVF wrap dresses are a great investment. Just beware of the prints because they can sometimes be rather loud, which is difficult for petite women to carry off.
