We know… finding the perfect pair of jeans is HARD. Not only do you want them to fit your body shape just right, but you want them to be the right length. That’s why we’ve rounded up the best jeans for curvy short women in today’s blog post. 

For even more personalized recommendations, make a (free!) Revelle account. Answer a few questions about your body shape and preferences, and you’ll get access to an online jeans store full of jeans curated just for you (based on your body shape, your price point, and the brands you love). Yes, really!

Now, let’s get to the jeans!

10 Best Jeans for Curvy Short Women

These jeans have us thinking we’ve found the best white jeans out there. They’re loose-fitting, straight-leg jeans (similar to mom jeans and boyfriend jeans) with a retro vibe. They’re made to accentuate your hourglass figure by cinching your waistline and giving your legs plenty of room to move.

This pair of high-rise skinny jeans aren’t your average skinny jeans. They are made for petite women (under 5’3”) AND they’re curvy fit, so even though they’re skinny jeans, they’ll be comfy and show off your curves. Pair them with a white t-shirt and you have a classic, everyday outfit.

Sometimes super high-waisted jeans are too much for a petite frame, so these mid-rise petite jeans are a great alternative! They are made with performance stretch denim and have sculpting pockets (read: such a  flattering fit). Plus, they have a cute raw hem!  What more could you want?

A classic pair of dark wash ankle jeans. Do we need to say more? Okay, okay we will. They’re mid-rise, have a slim fit, and are made to be comfortable on your curves.

Bootcut jeans are the BEST way to show off those curves. They hug your legs and flare ever so slightly at the bottom to give you an hourglass silhouette. Plus, this pair comes in short, regular, and long lengths – so if you’re petite, you won’t need to get them hemmed, just order from the short size range!

Let me guess… you might not love the way normal girlfriend jeans fit your curves (or should we say, don’t fit? We know it’s frustrating when jeans that are supposed to be “loose and relaxed” don’t fit that way). Well, these distressed jeans might be your new favorite pair because they are made for curvy body shapes (and we promise they won’t be baggy!).

If you love ripped jeans (we do too, btw) but you don’t love showing skin under your jeans, allow us to introduce you to these INC ripped jeans. Not only are they petite, but they also have patches under the rips so you don’t feel exposed.

We think these jeans speak for themselves. They are high-rise with a “paperbag” waistband at the top, so they are perfect for tucking in shirts (new favorite work jeans?). The waistband is stretchy and the jeans have a relaxed fit throughout, making them VERY comfortable (and VERY cute).

Unique jeans lovers, this pair is for you! We love the button fly and the visible seams, especially in a fun-light wash like this one. These jeans have an extra short inseam (23”) so you’ll be able to show off your shoes even if you are on the shorter side. Plus, they have a tummy control panel in the front, so if you like extra security in your mid-section, it’s built-in.

These NYDJ jeans are the epitome of classic. They are dark wash, bootcut, and use a stretch fabric that lifts your butt and gives a tummy flattening effect (although, we don’t think you need it!).
