Petite is a term used to describe people about or under 5’4”. Petiteness, for some, can be seen as a place of insecurity. People can make discriminatory comments about height, leading to a lack of self-confidence and jealousy of those taller than them.

What is considered an acceptable height and the way people view height has been a topic of conversation for generations. This was first observed with the term Napoleon Complex when newspapers during the 1800s mocked Napoleon for his height.
