I am not out of the Ann Taylor clothing range, but I know what you mean. XS isn't really XS there. I do find that the pants and maybe pencil skirts are cut smaller than the dresses and shirts.
Have you tried Victoria's Secret clothing? Those are usually cut "small" and fitted. When I was a 2-4 at the Gap, 4-6 at Ann Taylor, I was in a 6-8 in VS clothing. Of course, you have to buy online but they do have some business-y clothing.

I'm not sure if you have them anywhere near you, but you could try Zara, Topshop, Mango, H&M

Your page says you are 5'5" which isn't really petite. I'm surprised you have so much trouble finding clothes. Where I live, Ann Taylor carries small sizes, as do Macy's, Nordstrom's, and most of the rest. Maybe you should try online. Good luck!

Fat aside, I am a giant person, so I will never have this problem. :)

I am tall, so I buy a lot of things from Banana Republic/Gap/Old Navy. Their online sites work well and they have everything in tall. I also buy a lot of things from Boden because I like British clothing.

Maybe you should check online for more petite options.

JC Penny's (where I get most of my clothes), Kohl's, and Ross Dress for Less.

I have the opposite problem here! In Malaysia, they keep trying to skimp on material, making smaller and smaller clothes. I keep having to go for L or XL! And I'm only like 125lbs and I'm short.

I like New York and company and JcPenny. I also found some great tops and jeans at Carson's. I go on "Carson's Days" when they have coupons.

Bets wishes!

(needing smaller clothes is a good problem to have!)

There is a website called eShakti and the customize clothes to your measurements. Their clothes are usually $50 to $100 range. If you need something for a specific event. Make sure you write that in your special instructions.

Mod Cloth also runs small. That website has many price points

We don't have much out here as far as shopping. We used to have a Gottschalks, but they closed. So now it's J.C. Penny's or Kohl's. Macy's is 45 minutes away.

I like Kohls, lots of good deals and I have good luck there. So do my sisters who are much smaller than I am.

I kind of have the same problem - I am tall - so no matter on much weight I lose I usually can't find pants and dresses long enough

Try Macy's, they have a decent selection of petite women's business suits. They have sales all the time. TJ Maxx and Marshall's are hit or miss. Check their clearance racks because you never know what you'll find. You could also try H&M. While they are mostly geared towards teens/college age shoppers, I have found some nice tops in there. And I'm an old hag. LOL !

You could even consider outlet stores for clothing bargains too.

Now that you've lost the weight, where do you shop for your clothing? I'm in the US and none of the chain stores (big box or in the malls) make women's clothes small enough without going into the "too young" trendy teen section. Do you have a place you shop that offers decent quality, business/work women's clothing that actually fits small frames without paying $200+ per piece? Shops like Ann Taylor don't go down far enough any more.

I can't wear my work out clothes all day (what a shame!).
