I don't understand. It says 'strette' means 'grasp' etc ... Does it really mean small? Maybe in the sense of 'tight'? If so, it has not been in introduced before...

"strette" is the female plural form of "stretto" = narrow, tight.

Thanks! I thought so... just strange that meaning wasn't included in the dictionary words.
