petite sports clothing?? great business opportunity for someone

Anyone know where I can get a petite fit long sleeved running top, womens fit preferable with a half zip neck?

Just put on my new Odlo long sleeve for this eves run in the pouring rain and the sleeves are literally 7 inches too long and the top finishes nearly at my knees! I look ridiculous as if my running style wasn't weird enough

Sports Direct sell Karrimor and their tops are not that long in the sleeve cos I'm only little too. They also sell other brands Nike, Adidas etc which are usually OK. So if your about 5'1" and a size 10-12 you will be OK with any of their stuff. Have also just bought a compression top from Aldi size medium, might get into it OK it'll be the getting out of it that will be fun!!!! But thought I would give it a try.

Nip down to aldi and try their small you can always take it back . I am a size 14 and had to have a large Pat


Do you wear pants/leggings while running?

I'm 4'11 and finding it really hard to find a pair for running tights that aren't way too long...


We have a few petite Ladies that buy from the childrens range in our bricks and mortar stores based in Ilkley, West Yorkshire or Nelson, Lancashire... Some of the range can be found on our website as mentioned above.


Thanks! I'll take a look
