Best Petite Running Clothing for Women

To all petite women out there like me…

Are you struggling to find running kit to fit a petite frame? Would you like to find running gear that fits you beautifully? It is not a secret that finding sports clothing is hard for us. You can end up a little fed-up at times. To try on more than 10 items and find that none feels like it should – tights too long, T-shirts too baggy, etc. – can be dispiriting. You can even end up abandoning the search or settling for something that doesn’t make you feel great.

As a 5ft runner and a size UK 4-6, I understand how it can be frustrating to find the perfect pair of running tights, etc. I have even taken sports clothing to a dressmaker to make alterations, and asked my patient mother to fix my clothes. Don’t get me wrong, I like being petite, but no one likes to be hitching up their tights every kilometre when running.

That's why I want to share with you my personal edit of running clothing. These pieces have made me feel better; I love them and I think you will too. So, let’s make this process easier and more satisfying, so that running is the only thing you have to concentrate on.
