Company Summary

Our company is working on being the first online retailer to focus solely on providing fashion merchandise for petite women. It is currently estimated petites are spending only 70% of what they could be spending due to lack of supply of appropriately fitting fashion. Even the products that do exist are not always petite enough for this group. Our customers are petite women, specifically who are 5'2" and under, currently 20 million in the US.
