Can a tall girl (5'8) be petite? is it the way a girl is built, small frame, skinny or does is it just height?

no. petite is short AND small build not necessarily super thin you can still be petite and be alittle heavy or any type of body shape (pear/apple/hourglass) it's just a nice way of saying "short" but most people apply it to tiny girls in general
petite is under 5'4" by the way.
all those women are under 5'4 and are considered petite though they may have varying body types.0
