    cherokee scrubs have petite length scrubs sizes XXS... you can probably order them from most online stores.

    definitely order online, you can get them cheaper. i know cherokee, grays anatomy, dickies and koi all make petites. i have to get petites too im only an inch taller than you.. i would check out a scrub store and try some on and look online for the same ones if scared about them fitting properly.

    wish i had that problem :P

    though I think a lot of women have trouble because everyone is a different shape and height and people carry weight on different parts of their body.

    I'm 5'2" and petite... I just tried on a ton of styles at a uniform store. The Grey's Anatomy (in junior sizes, not missy) definitely ran more like street clothes sizing. The size chart was accurate for me. I bet you wouldn't be sized out of the junior styles. The Cherokee scrubs were a little cheaper, but really soft, and ran big. But... every pair of pants was still a little long; I'm probably going to hem them after I wash 'em. It's a fact of life being short - even "petite" pants are usually too long!

    Im 5'3 and still have to get petites. I like the KOI pants and they fit really well. Its really ahrd ordering online though if you haven't tried them on before because some brands I wear mediums, some larges, and some even small so it really depends on teh brand.

    I haven't found anything that fits me the right way either! I'm 5 ft 1/2 inch and I just got my clinical scrub pants (small petite) and I STILL have to roll them up! I wish they thought of us shorties too!

    I'm 5'4 but I'm really tiny and nothing fits that well Im actually trying to shrink my scrubs right now. I got XS and they're the best fit I could find. Online is definitely the best option. I'm going to order from It looks like they have an XS of everything!

    I'm 5'4" and 110 pounds...small frame. I bought cherokee XXS petites and they fit pretty well. I can't dry them or they would be too short, but regulars are WAY too long. My biggest problem though is scrub tops. Every scrub top I have tried just hangs on me...they all seem to swallow me.
