I partnered with ASOS for a fun reel over on Instagram, and wanted to share some fit and fabric details on each piece! Their petites collection runs on the smaller side and is one of the few brands that fit very petite ladies off the rack. ASOS carries a variety of brands and fit varies based on each brand, though I generally suggest sizing up with their own in-house label. Shipping to the US is very fast and the returns process has always been smooth for me.

In my reel I shared a few dress picks ranging from garden party to black tie appropriate, and they also gave me code JEAN15 for 15% off a first order of $50+ (ends 7/28, not stackable with other promos). Heads up, with each of these dresses below I have on my favorite Bristols 6 adhesive nippies.

1. Black Tie Event // Estate Wedding

Also available in regular sizing in lots of colors. Petite also comes in chocolate.

Wow – hands down my favorite ASOS find for a timeless special occasion dress. You’d be hard pressed to find a formal, black tie appropriate dress under $100 and even harder to find one that fits a petite frame without ANY alterations! This one is a winner and I absolutely love the elegance and drape. The fabric weight is pleasantly thicker than I expected. It’s not clingy like some satin dresses, not too shiny, not too bright, and looks much more luxe than the $80 price tag. The tie back with a sexy dip is adjustable for a good fit. I went up a size to 0 Petite and it is a gently curve-skimming fit.

2. Garden Party // Baby Shower

This one is so cute and comfortable, and impressive quality (fully lined) for the affordable price point. I was drawn in by the good reviews and loved seeing one customer add some edge by wearing it with black combat boots! The smocking also makes this bump and nursing friendly. Even though this is regular sizing and note petite, the fit of a 0 on me was very good.

3. Winery Wedding

A fun and vibrant option for my color and print lovers. The fabric is lightweight with a silky feel and flows with each movement. The pale neon color would look amazing against a summer tan. Petite sizing means the sleeves actually fit and aren’t too long on me, however the back part was a little big on me and would probably be a more ideal fit on someone an inch taller. I appreciated seeing some of the customer photos in the reviews of this dress on different body types!

4. Cocktail Attire

With anything cocktail attire, it’s hard to go wrong with an LBD. My photos unfortunately could not capture some of the details, but the material on this is actually a lightweight black linen. The bust area is shirred across and I’m a fan of the voluminous yet softly draping statement sleeves. The two stretch back bands are also shirred, and there is a side zipper closure on this skirt. The skirt is a gentle A line (not very flared) and I found the hip area to run a little narrow.

I also wanted to point out a few other pieces that I tried on!

  • ASOS petite sarong 0 Petite – Been searching for a tie waist cover up like this, with a little more of a “skirt” shape and structure compared to a plain rectangle sarong!
  • ASOS belted maxi dress 0 Petite – love the eyelet skirt with slit and waist belt. Note the skirt is not lined so you’ll definitely need skin-toned underwear. The 0P is a snug fit on me.
  • ASOS v-neck slip dress 0 Petite – another lovely satin slip style dress. Beautiful champagne color in person, subtly sexy deeper V neckline, but unfortunately no zipper so this one took some effort getting over my shoulders, even after sizing up.
