As if finding separates to fit a petite frame isn't already enough of a challenge, just add one-pieces to the list. For petites, waistlines on regular-sized rompers drop down to the derrière, jumpsuit hem lengths are laughably long, and overall straps look more like suspenders. But not all hope is lost—we found the stash of one-pieces that will perfectly fit your diminutive proportions.

Rompers with delicate spaghetti straps are your best—they complement your small stature. Look for pieces with waist detailing to help accentuate your figure. And lastly, find ones with a simpler, less busy print to not overwhelm.
