I'm glad you shared the brooch placement bit! I have narrow shoulders, short arms, a long torso and short legs. Not many midi petite dresses anywhere I buy some blazers in large petite too. Europe is a bit better in my opinion, their clothing has stayed the same for the last 30 years or so. Give it a shot and let me know how it is.
I have narrow shoulders, short arms, a long torso and short legs. Petite tops fit perfectly across the shoulders, through the chest and in the sleeve length but are just too short ending at my navel.
I am having difficulty deciding what size trench coat to order, should I order the petite to have it fit across the shoulders and through the arms or a regular to ensure proper coverage around my hips the pear issue?

Despite that a lot of petite clothing is not cut short enough in the waist or arms, but the pants are cut way too short! What really bugs me is the lack of selection. And why do they cater for an increasingly older market? I am 50 years old and I think a lot of the clothes they push in petite sizes look matronly!

Try to tell that to salespeople…it can be really frustrating. It is a good thing I learned to sew early in life. I have a shorter torso and long legs because no matter what pants end up flooding on me. Shirts are always very baggy, Last time checked I was Pants I buy 24 or depending on the brand or store.
