Where to shop to buy race wear when you're petite or curvaceous

Rosie Hegarty

For women in Australia the average dress size is 16. Yet this isn’t generally represented in the media in a positive way which is so damaging to self-esteem and body image.  Being curvy and voluptuous is feminine and sexy so we shouldn’t have to compromise on buying beautiful clothing because we’re not a standard size 6.

At the opposite end of the scale, we have shorter girls who need to wear petite ranges. They have small feet and bodies so it can become a nightmare finding clothes that fit.

Whether you are size 20 or a petite lady under 5 foot, both have their challenges when buying a dress because you don’t fit the “Normal” dress sizes off the shelf.

I’ve done some digging to find some brands that cater to the larger sized ladies or the petite girl who needs custom sized clothes too.

Here are some brands that have decent dresses that are suitable for race day, weddings and special occasions.
