when do baby bettas lose their stripes?

How old are bettas when they lose their stripes? I've had my girl for a few weeks and she still has stress stripes. But I'm wondering if she is just really young and they haven't fully faded yet. She is very small. From pictures of fully grown females she looks about half their size. She's only about an inch long not including her tail.
I got her at Petsmart and all the female bettas are super tiny there.

Not all Bettas lose the white stripes. In all the year I had my female in her community tank she has had white stripes even when I bought her.
