Why is it so difficult to find petite sweater dresses online?! You would think by now online shopping would make it easier to find them, but it ain't that easy!

At first when I searched for petite sweater dresses all I was finding were sweater dresses that were being modeled by models 5'6 and up. Clearly that won't work for us gals who are 5'4 and under. 

Now that Fall is right around the corner, sweater dresses are essential for a casual day out or a night out with friends or hubby. So, I took the liberty to find some of the best sweater dresses so you don't have to. 

To establish some credibility so you don't think we're some randoms. We did countless hours of researching customer reviews and model measurements to find the best sweater dresses on the market. Trust us when we say we've got the best collection of petite sweater dresses below. Every single dress on this list is petite friendly for those 5'4" and under, based on both model measurements and real customer reviews. 


From well-established brands like Abercrombie and Anthropologie, to cool and trendy brands like Princess Polly and Revolve, there is something for everyone in this list.
