    Not trying to sound dumb but on the new measurements what is the sweep?

    • Z. Pearson says:

      Hi Devon,

      Thanks for your question! Sweep is the circumference of the bottom hem of the garment. It’s measured by laying the garment flat, measuring the bottom hem from edge to edge, and then doubling that number.

    Why don’t you have smaller sizes for petite women?
