why i started petite nation® Active

as a pilates and yoga instructor it was only a natural transition for me to expand petite nation® to include petite activewear. like many women, i found myself wearing yoga pants or leggings outside of the gym and studio environment to run errands or just kickin’ it with friends.

i’ve been practicing yoga since 1997, and have been teaching pilates and yoga since 2003 in both denver, co and chattanooga, tn. i’ve always looked for activewear that wasn’t only functional and stylish, but also affordable and with a proper petite fit.

at 4’11”, I never found a yoga pant or legging that i didn’t have to shorten. the petite nation® Active pants are petite lengths so no alterations are needed.

we’re so busy juggling all facets of our life….job, family, school, buying groceries, planning events, or even just finding time to work out. we may not have time to shower or change after a workout or run because we have to be somewhere in 20 minutes. the crossover styling and breathable materials of petite nation® Active let you look sporty & stylish in whatever you do!

petite nation® Active is activewear made exclusively for petites. whether you lead an active lifestyle, want to look like you do, or just totally love wearing comfortable clothes that move with you in your exciting and on-the-go life, petite nation® Active is functional, fashionable, and fitting!

from the beginning…

big things do come in small packages!

fashion should be fun, modern, and most importantly, fitting! so what was a petite chick to do? designing and sewing have always been hobbies of mine, so i started designing clothes that were glam on style and complimented the petite woman.

after earning my MBA in international business from the university of denver, i concentrated my efforts on making hip clothes that complimented my petite size. it wasn’t until i was getting loads of compliments and requests from friends and strangers that i realized i had an untapped talent for designing clothes. and thus, in 2007 i debuted my first clothing line for the petite fashionista who lives life large. my “cozy chic meets contemporary mod” essence takes cues from what’s currently on-trend and chic with strong nods to what’s hot on the runway.

petite nation® is committed creating value and giving petites what they want – clothes that are fresh and contemporary.
