Sezane Tops And T-Shirts That Are Great For Petites

When you are petite it never fails that you love the look and vibe of a brand and then they don’t make petite sizing. You always wonder if their things work for me and my smaller frame. I am happy to say that this French brand has so many great finds for petites. Yes, I have tried several Sezane tops and t-shirts over the last few months and am finally ready to share which ones worked for this petite woman.

Since “petite” means different things to different women I always like to preface my size. I am 5′ 1/2″ and usually wear a size XXS or 0 top and a 0 or 2 bottom depending upon the cut in Sezane clothing. Just like any clothing line, some pieces work and some don’t since they are not true petite sizing. By the way, I also wear a US size 5 shoe.

Before I go into detail about the tops and t-shirts that I find to work for petites here are a few other posts you might want to check out.

In 2023 I had the opportunity to work with Sezane. I was familiar with the brand but hadn’t explored much because they did not have petite sizing. Since I write about everything petite and petite-friendly I prefer to wear petite sizing whenever possible; however I fell in love with so many things about Sezane designs.

I worked with a lovely lady who guided me to pieces she felt would work for petites. We emailed several times and her suggestions were spot on. I have since tried several other pieces and that is how I came up with this post.

I find all Sezane designs to be classic and timeless. That’s why the French women have dressing nailed. They appreciate classic and understated quality pieces that they can wear for many years. So if that is what you are looking for, you are in the right place. Another thing that I like about this brand is that they make certain styles year-round in core colors, as well as, seasonal fabrics. Never fear about European sizing. They have a great sizing chart in US sizing which is located under the size selection for each item.

No to the Sezane tops and t-shirts that find to work for petites.


Sezane offers several styles of blouses, button-downs, and their infamous Colette Marieiere. Some styles start at a US size 0 while others start at a size 2. While doing my “research” I found the more fitted pieces worked better for my petite frame.

The Chlo is a feminine top with great details. It has a lace detail on the button placket and all of the buttons are covered to match the blouse. The ecru does have some silk to it. Some of the colors are made of cotton so check the details. This is a top that you can pair with pretty much everything in your closet. It goes just as well with your favorite denim as it does with a pair of trousers or a skirt.

I wear a size 0 in this blouse. No alterations are needed.

They also make a lace version of this blouse at certain times of the year. Yes, you can see through the lace design, but that is part of the beauty of the blouse. I wear it with a black bra for an evening out. You can also put a black cami under it for more reserved occasions. I’m not usually a “lace” kind of gal. This lace is different. It is more fabric-like and is not stiff or itchy.


The Pierro is a very lightweight cotton blouse. The fabric is very soft. This style of Sezane shirts is usually made in patterns or prints in the warmer months. I purchased my Pierro in January as early spring items were available on the website. They seem to start the sizing of this style at size 2 in most fabric options. The sleeves are a little long, but I just cuff them back and they look fine. If you look at the photo above you can’t even tell that I turned back the cuff.


If you are looking for an organic 100% cotton classic button-down, the the Tomboy is the shirt for you. It is relaxed but not oversized. You can wear this style with your favorite jeans or dress up with trousers for work. You can tie it to wear very casually too. I am wearing a size 0 in this shirt.

It is a heavier cotton than the Pierro shirt. It is always available in several colors and fabrics. Depending upon the color/fabric it can either be 100% cotton or a cotton blend. I can see why this is one of the most popular Sezane tops. You can easily add them to your wardrobe in different colors and patterns and wear them for many years.


This silk or silk blend blouse is great for those days when you want to be a little more dressed up. I find it to fit like the Pierro shirt, just a different fabric. The covered buttons are a nice detail. I am wearing a size 0.

Sezane T-Shirts

Who doesn’t love a good T-shirt? Can you ever have too many elevated tees in neutral colors in your closet? Sezane T-shirts are—elevated shirts that come in neutral colors and sometimes colors for the season. They are made of quality fabrics and are timeless designs. They are T-shirts that you will reach for all of the time.

Colette Mariniere

It doesn’t get any more French than the Colette. This style of striped top is the epitome of classic French style. The shirt is made of a heavy cotton fabric and has two buttons at the shoulder which is a nice detail. I believe that the sleeves are meant to be 3/4; however, they were more bracelet length on me. This shirt is one that you can wear year-round. It always comes in various colors so you can go with true classic blue and ecru or your favorite color.

I find the Colette to run true to size. It is a little relaxed through the body, but not boxy. I am wearing an XXS.


I love the surprise of the detailed V on the back of this T-shirt. The Mina is a linen T-shirt which I like for summer. It is not too sheer in the ecru. I just wear a nude bra underneath.

The description says that it is reversible. I find the v-necks to be a little too low-cut for my body. That could be a petite factor in that I am shorter from the shoulders to the chest. I am wearing an XS.


This a Sezane T-shirt that you will reach for regularly. The Hortense is an organic cotton t-shirt with the prettiest lace inset at the sleeves. I like the fact that it comes down to the elbow. Between the lace detail and the sleeve length it just elevates it to the next level. You can wear it with jeans, but it would pair great with casual pants, dressier shorts, and skirts. This T-shirt is always available in black and white and then other season patterns or colors. I am wearing an XS.
