Petite or short length compression stockings are designed for women who have short legs. Compression stockings that are too long will typically roll-over at the top, or cause wrinkling, which can be painful, uncomfortable and unattractive.
For most brands of support knee highs, a lower leg length of 15" or less from the floor to bend of knee is a petite length.
For most brands of support thigh highs and pantyhose, a leg length of 28" from the floor to the crease of your buttocks is considered a petite length.
