I Read All the Reviews, and These Are the Best Curvy Petite Jeans

We know by now the never ending struggle that comes with shopping for clothes as a curvy woman. It turns out, particularly when it comes to jeans, the hunt isn’t particularly easy if you’re, say, 5’3″ or shorter, either. Put these two together (read: if you’re both short and curvy), shopping for jeans can easily lean more toward pull-your-hair-out stressful than it does fun.

With a number of denim trends buzzing on the market right now, we know you don’t want to sit this one out, so we’re doing what we do best—making shopping as easy as it can possibly be with a hefty roundup. And because shopping online can oftentimes be finicky, we’re going by what matters most: reviews (we know consumers tell it like it is when it comes to denim).

We looked everywhere from Nordstrom to Levi’s, and according to shoppers just like you, these are the 23 jeans that worked out the best.

“I look great in these jeans. They lifted me up in all the right places.”

“I get compliments whenever I wear these.”

“It’s so hard to get a TRUE pair of quality jeans anymore, but I think I finally found them! These jeans have substance, are a nice weight, and hold you in without making you feel restricted.”

“I love the short flare cut to show off a pair of chunky boots.”

“Love the stretch, and they’re oh-so-soft.”

“I’m 5’4″ and usually jeans are way too long on me, but these were the perfect length.”

“If you are an even slightly curvy gal, get these jeans!!! They are the best ever.”

“For being on the short side, I am happy with the length of these jeans, because they still have the appearance of being cropped.”

“So happy with this purchase. Curvy and in petite sizing? Yes, please!”

“I couldn’t ask for better if I went to a tailor. Now, my problem is that I don’t want to wear all my other jeans, because I know how good I can look in these!”

“I’m always nervous about buying clothes online, especially since I’m 4’11” and quite heavy, but these jeans fit perfectly.”

“I am only five foot, and these jeans fit perfectly. They are extremely comfortable.”

“These jeans are so buttery – They look tiny, but stretch perfectly over every curve. The inseam is perfect.”

“These are my go-to daily! I love that they look like polished jeans, but feel like leggings. They have all the stretch and comfort I need for a busy day bouncing from work life to mom life.”

“I am short, and these don’t fall too long or too short for the flare, which I really like.”


“These jeans are FANTASTIC! So comfy, so cute, and perfect length for me at 5’4″.”

“I wear them with heels and sneakers, and they look great.”

“The cutest plus size jeans for the best deal. These could go with pretty much any top.”

“Finally, finally! Jeans that are stylish AND comfortable.”

“This is the best pair of jeans I’ve ever worn. The denim is thick and durable, and I love how high the waist is!

“In love with these vintage style jeans. Not too baggy, and not too skinny. They’re the perfect in between.”

“I hope they make these forever in every color.”
