I'm petite. Shopping has always been a problem for me, something that hasn't been helped by the fact that, style-wise, most petite departments seem to stock clothes for 80 year old grandmothers. Apparently I won't even have to worry any more about that insult to my sensibilities. Stores are phasing out their petite clothes altogether. And where, I ask you, does that leave me?
UPDATE: It seems I'm not the only one with this problem. Neo-Neocon is also bemoaning the increasingly narrow range of options for those of us who go by the old-fashioned name of pocket Venus.
