Is someone 5"6 but who is small boned and thin be considered "petite"?

im 5"6 and 119 lb, i am very small boned for the most part, as i can wrap my fingers not only around my wrist but half way up my forearm, im slender but i have wide hips and a big chest, although other than that pretty small elsewhere. would i be considered small or petite despite being tall? my friends and the store attendents who fit me when i go into shops usually refer to me as tiny, despite my height. what do you think?

  • Nope, petite is short. I'de say under 5'3" could be considered short. You are just tall and thin.

  • You sound like a thin 5'6" girl with a small frame. I don't consider that petite.

  • Yes you are. You aren't tall. Maybe average but more short to me.
