Products

Are all your clothes a petite fit?

 

We are not a petite brand, only our name is petite, if you read our blog, you can find out why we chose it.

Our own branded clothing is all currently regular sized. Within the product page you will be able to find the size chart and measurements for that item.

Our vintage, retro and reworked clothing range varies in sizes and fit. All vintage sizes are listed and measurements taken.

 

Are you a sustainable brand?

 

Yes, we would say we are a sustainable brand. Our own clothing is made using certified recycled or organic materials. We have taken care in the sourcing of materials as well as the production process to reduce enviromental impact as much as possible.

Our reworked and vintage and retro items are all sourced from recycling plants. The clothing which may be too damaged to sell is reworked into one off pieces, saving them from landfill.

 

Will you be releasing anymore of your own products?

 

Certainly, we have plans to produce a whole range of clothing as you would find in any shop. All high quality, stylish, designed to last and with a great fit at a competitve price.

 

Can I purchase your clothing in stores?

 

Sadly not, we have been asked but currently have no desire to go down the wholesale route and arent yet in a position to open our own stores.

 

How do I know what size will fit?

 

Our own branded clothing is all currently regular sized. Within the product page you will be able to find the size chart and measurements for that item.

For our reworked and vintage and retro clothing as we only have one of each and all measurements are taken individually. These are included in the item description. Please note that some vintage clothing is made to fit slightly smaller than modern sizing, always check the measurements.

 

Are your products over priced?

 

We benchmark our pricing with other similar stores whilst keeping it competitive. Our ultimate goal is to sell high quality sustainably made clothing at a competitive price point to the high street.

 

Is all the clothing you sell used?

 

They are not, we have categorized the website into sections to make it easy to see which are new and which are used.

All Fierce Petite branded clothing is new and made to the highest quality. The rework, vintage and retro sections are all either preloved, or deadstock and classed as Grade A (you can read more about our grading here).
