A 3ft 8in woman is battling the prejudices around Little People in fashion. Caitlin from Devon, UK, was born with achondroplasia, a form of short-limbed dwarfism. The 18-year-old told Barcroft TV: “I kind of do enjoy having the condition because being average height would just be so weird to me now.” Caitlin gets most of her clothes from the children’s section of shops – or gets her clothes altered. After a photo she posted of her outfit on Instagram received a lot of attention, Caitlin began regularly blogging on social media about her outfits. She said: “People kept asking me ‘where do you get the stuff, how do you do it, because I’ve been searching for this for ages and it’s really helped me.’ And the rewarding aspect of that makes me want to push it further.” The student’s parents are extremely proud of her daughter, and her determination to not let her condition affect her confidence.
