If you are not blessed with the length of the average Dutch woman, it can be a challenge for you to find clothing. At least, clothing in which you seem to be a little longer. Many women are dissatisfied with their figure. But dissatisfaction with the length is at a solid second place. Even though others often find it cute, you are less happy with it. Fortunately, there is a number of ways to make yourself seem to make you seem longer. We put some clothing tips for the short ladies at a glance.
The ideal trousers

The wide pipes ensure that your legs seem to be more centimeters. You could compare it with what an a-line dress can do your height and figure.
Prints and uni colors
