Remove default Material design paddings

Basically all Material Design Widget have a default minimum padding, as per their documentation. Is there a way to remove this padding ? For example, a TextFormField while have its label very close to its content, but I haven't found a way to do the same for a DropDownButton, which is annoying since it break the pattern in a form having TextFormFields and DropDownButtons in it.

Many thanks.

Edit : This question provides the widget I need, which doesn't seem to be well known : DropdownButtonFormField. It adds components like a label, which answers my immediate need.
