The musings of a short woman narrated by a short woman

Short girl problems? Sorry, this is going to take long. We may be short, but the list of petite woman problems is pretty damn long.

Crowd or claustrophobia 

    Crowded places make you gasp for a drop of air. Concerts, clubs, Mumbai locals, everything is a struggle to achieve one dash of air! Yes, short girl problems are real. As real as it gets.

    The gym nightmare

      You go to a gym, the trainer guides you through a piece of equipment, but something's not right. He looks at it confused, only to realize you are too short to use it. Has this ever happened to you? No? You're lying! I can’t be the only one!

      Endless pants

        All bottoms are long enough to fit two of you. Petite women know the struggle to find the right pair of bottoms. Leggings, tights, yoga pants are always baggy unless you pull them up to your chest.

        Dreaded dresses

          Dresses for short girls? Please let it be above my knees!

          Does this even qualify as a sun visor?

            Even the sun visor in your car can't stop you from the non-stop eye squinting. Who designed it? The Great Hulk?!

            Is all of this based on real-life incidents? Yes. Do I tell people about it? No. Let this be our little secret. Just like us :)

            While aastey understands short women's problems and the struggles of being a petite girl, we also want you to know that short, or not, you're gorgeous. If the sun visor doesn't save you from the sun, put on your chic pair of sunglasses. If a pair of leggings don't fit you, get rid of the leggings, not your self-esteem. We want you to feel a 100% yourself, aastey brings you size inclusive athleisure and activewear so that you don't have to complain about not finding the right size ever again.

            Love yourself, and live aastey!
