    Looking for some help, I've tried buying lingerie/outfits for my partner but the smallest size are always too big for her, I've had a go at altering but it never come out quite right.
    She is 5 feet and a size 4 or 6.
    If anyone has any advice it will be much appreciated.

    The latest blog post. http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/blog/2016/03/26/top-tips-for-buying-petite-lingerie/

    Also I believe member Nat&Tom is about the same size, she might be able to offer more advice.

    I know popk1n is about the same size so may be worth having a look at her reviews. The same for NatandTom, they should be very helpful :)

    You rang?

    I'm 5ft and a size 4-6 (more of a 4 these days) so I hope I can offer a few suggestions. I buy lingerie quite frequently & have success with many pieces I find here at Lovehoney. Particularly with the Lovehoney own brand ranges. The matching underwear is often too big, but she can pair her own underwear up with sets if she can find a colour match. I usually opt for removable suspenders and adjustable straps just to optimize the fit.

    A few items that I can recommend highly are;

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=30698 (I know it says 8-16 but these types of lingerie come really small and stretch to your body type, so still fit perfectly)

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=30693

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=32651 (I have this in three colours because I love it so much)

    http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=33891

    Hope that helps! Feel free to look through my lingerie reviews for more options :)

    I'm only slightly bigger than your OH, I'd recommend the Lovehoney brand chemises and bodystockings as they're always a good fit for me. I find the lovehoney padded/underwired bras tend to have big back size and big cups so I'd steer clear of those. Click on my name and check out my reviews if you want more detailed info - I've reviewed loads of lingerie.

    If that can help, I waer a US size 4, so that would make me a 6 in UK. I have bought some lovehoney lingerie in small that is sized for 6-8 and it fits me well. I have also bought lingerie in S/M that fits 8-10 and it also fits. It fits a little bigger (I mean that it's closer from too big than too small) but still does fit me. So I think maybe if your OH is uk size 4-6 she would fit in a 6-8 just like I do in a 8-10 :)
