They are a lot more expensive than Gap. Have been to the shop in Regent Street. Very nice stuff - and they do a range for shorties (particularly useful for smart trousers). Good for work wear/smart casual.
We have one here. Their clothes look nice and smart (think business attire), but I find that they just don't fit very well. I have to choose items very carefully when I buy from them. They have FANTASTIC sales though, join their mailing list online if there is a UK one, often they have 40% off emails etc.. coming through.
I adore it there. Clothes fit me perfectly so I guess you won't know til you try, and generously sized... still wins me over every time as silly as I know it is Yes Petites may suit you! I think it would really suit someone in their 40s. I am in early 30s and sometimes wonder if it is slightly too grown up for me. But it is perfect for everything other than knocking about with the kids.
Have to admit I think their quality has gone down hill big time. I remember racing to their store in the States a few years ago and loving the clothes. But last year in London and in New York I was seriously disappointed- thought the material and colours were cheap and dull. They do however do excellent accessories- handbags in particular.
