10 Best Jeans for Curvy Short Women

Let’s get into the nitty gritty!

These jeans have us thinking we’ve found the best light-wash 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.

  • Size Range: 23 to 34
  • Inseam: 26”
  • Rise: 11.25”
  • Leg Opening: 17”
  • Price (when blog was published): $195.00
Hudson Remi High Rise Straight Crop Leg Jeans

This pair of mid-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.

  • Size Range: 2P to 16P
  • Inseam: 26”
  • Price (when blog was published): $39.50
Style & Co Petite Curvy Fit Skinny Jeans

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?

  • Size Range: 00 to 18
  • Inseam: 25”
  • Rise: 10.125”
  • Leg Opening: 10.25”
  • Price (when blog was published): $33.59
Ann Taylor Petite Sculpting Pocket Mid Rise Skinny Jeans

A classic pair of 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. Plus, they’re made from a stretchy blend of cotton, elastane, and spandex.

  • Size Range: 24 to 34
  • Inseam: 29”
  • Price (when blog was published): $98.00
Guess Women's Mid Rise Sexy Curve Skinny Jeans

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 the short length!

  • Size Range: 4 to 18
  • Price (when blog was published): $39.50

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!).

  • Size Range: 0 to 16
  • Inseam: 27” cuffed
  • Price (when blog was published): $59.70

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.

  • Size Range: 0P to 16P
  • Inseam: 26.5” (petite)
  • Rise: 11.25”
  • Price (when blog was published): $47.70

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). Plus? You can get them on ASOS.

  • Size Range: 0 to 10
  • Price (when blog was published): $75.62
AllSaints Hailey Elastic Band Boyfriend Jeans

Behold the underrated slim fit cut – although this pair is called straight leg – you’ll notice they really fall somewhere between a straight and skinny silhouette. While they won’t feel like a second skin hugging your body, they’ll still be form-fitting around your legs and hips and lend a slimming effect that some may be looking for.

  • Size Range: 23 to 34
  • Inseam: 27.5”
  • Rise: 9.5”
  • Price (when blog was published): $199.00
FRAME Le High High Rise Ankle Straight Leg Jeans

These Style & Co jeans are the epitome of classic. They are dark wash, bootcut, and use a tummy control panel to smooth your midsection (although, we don’t think you need it!). Our favorite part? They’re made from a cotton-polyester-spandex blend for extra stretch and comfort.

  • Size Range: 14 to 24
  • Inseam: 29”
  • Price (when blog was published): $49.50
Style & Co Plus & Petite Plus Size Tummy Control Jeans
