Q: Is the $25 monthly subscription fee the same as the $25 styling fee?Asked by Carla D., January 2020
Yep! It's the same thing. And the $25 gets credited toward any items you keep.
Q: I'm VERY small and petite I don't like buying clothes without trying them on first plus I would per fer a profile to check sizes Asked by Tina R., August 2019
You will love short story. They are good at finding clothes to flatter you no matter what size.
After signing up you'll be prompted to fill out a style profile. That's where you can tell us all about your sizes, style, budget, and any special requests. :)
Q: What sizes are the clothes Asked by Tina R., September 2019
Hi Tina! We carry sizes 00P - 16P.
Q: Do I only get charged $25 for the box and then if I decide to keep any of it then I pay for the items themselves after I get the box?Asked by Lauren F., March 2020
Hi Lauren, that's right! You get your items, try everything on, and then decide what to buy. For anything you buy, the $25 is credited toward it. If you don't find anything you like, we'll work with you to tweak your size or style for your next box. The more you share with us, the better our styling is!
I am obsessed with this box! I've ordered it for two months at this point, and both times, I've kept ALL 5 items! All of the clothes they've sent have fit me perfectly and been exactly my style. I noticed a couple times that some items weren't marked as petite in size, but I can tell that the stylists certainly keep the petite frame in mind when working with these brands! I so look forward to receiving this box each month. Even when I've had questions via email, I've gotten prompt, friendly responses each time!
I love this box. I have tried other ones and nothing ever fit right. I have kept almost every pair of jeans I have been sent and the clothing is always well put together.
I would highly recommend this box to anyone that needs petites.
I buy outfits not just a top or pants this box had two outfits very nice. The price of the clothes are priced 30-90$ would recommend this box for petite women.
I received my first box and absolutely loved it. I got two tops, a pair of pants, a dress, and a cardigan. I was super excited to get this box because I’ve tried a bunch of other styling services and the stuff they sent me never really fit right. I’m 5’0” and curvy and usually look better in petite sizes. I’ve been looking for work pants that are ankle length and work appropriate. They found me a great pair of ponte pants that are very slimming and comfortable. I’m also really picky with tops because they're too long a lot of times. They sent me a cute striped tee (not see through!!) and a blouse that both fell above my hips. Everything was good quality and reasonably priced. You also don't have to keep everything. You can ship back whatever you don't want. Definitely a winner and I can’t wait to get my next box!
I've received four boxes so far from Short Story. For a petite woman, this subscription service continues to amaze and delight! The clothes are of great quality, and the prices are very reasonable. It's difficult to find great clothes for women that consistently fit someone who is 5'3", but Short Story hits it out of the park every time. Many of the best items in my closet come from Short Story boxes. Recently I messed up at checkout and due to my mistake I was charged for something I was sending back in the box. I e-mailed Short Story and they issued me a refund, again, due to my own error, before the box even reached them. I cannot recommend this subscription service more highly!
What a great experience! I really felt like they cared about making sure I had a great experience. They are so responsive to questions and making sure you get what you need. The clothing I got perfectly fit for what I requested. It was the style I like and had some slightly outside my comfort zone items which is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much. It was so cool to see there are so many petite brands that I’d never heard of with such great quality. Highly recommend.
I loved the clothes that were sent to me. The quality was amazing. You could tell they really took the time to pick out each item. Putting on each item was a great experience, as well as opening the beautifully presented box. Best items in my closet.
Just amazing! Everything fit perfectly and she definitely listened to what I was looking for. She even tells you what to wear with it.
Really high quality box. The packaging was beautiful! My box included a wrap dress and skinny jeans and both are great pieces that I could get a ton of wear out of. I was skeptical at first because finding petite sizes is really hard but everything fit nicely. They clearly paid attention to my quiz responses on what cuts/styles I liked and what I wanted to avoid. Highly recommend if you’re petite!!!
Yea! I found a clothing service that offers clothes that fit me! I am 5’2 and curvy and everything fit great. I also had a few emails with the company and all correspondence was prompt and helpful. I received two dresses, two tops and a pair of pants in my first box. And I’m looking forward to my next one. I really like this company.
