Your perfect pair of plus-size denim jeans awaits.  | @kelliepinkkk

Finding jeans that actually fit the way YOU want them to is hard enough as it is. But if you’re on the petite side, or have strong, athletic thighs and calves, or are curvy, it’s even trickier.  

We’re here to change that. When you join Revelle, we’ll ask you a few questions about your beautiful body, then use that information to build your personal store filled with alllllll types of jeans from alllllll types of retailersrelaxed fit mom jeans, wide leg jeans, boyfriend jeans…you name it. 

But in the meantime, these dozen plus-size jeans are a stellar place to start.

Levi’s

Ever since introducing the world’s first pair of jeans made exclusively for women, Levi’s has continued to be a pioneering brand — and their plus-size collection is no exception. You’ll be spoiled for choice, with not only jeans of all types, but also t-shirts, jean jackets, and sweatshirts. 

Made with a denim combo of 98% cotton and 2% spandex, these high-rise, button-fly jeans (available on Asos) cut off right above the ankles for an ever-so-slightly cropped look that pairs perfectly with sandals, sneakers, and ankle booties. Not into the light wash blue? They also come in washed black.

Jag Jeans

We love Jag for so many reasons. For one, their mission is to encourage body positivity, self-love, and confidence with jeans that “inspire women around the world to live their best lives and feel confident in everything they do.” RETWEET. 

But also, their collection of plus-size clothing fits so, so well. Plus, many pieces come with their signature pull-on waistband that we can’t get enough of.

These mid-rise, straight leg jeans leave just enough room for the hips and thighs. But what truly seals the deal is the pull-on waistband, stretch cotton-rayon-spandex trifecta, and cream, goes-with-anything color.  

The chino twill fabric on these Maya jeans is perfectly soft to the touch — trust us, you won’t want to take ‘em off. Plus, the high-rise cut has an elongating, slimming effect, if that’s your thing. 

Behold the all-around classic skinny jean in a dark wash, pull-on style. 

Unlike the Maya skinny jeans, Cecilia’s have a button closure. They’re still dark wash though, with a touch of fading to lend a lived-in (but not TOO lived-in) touch. 

Liverpool Los Angeles

Liverpool Los Angeles is all about “relatable fashion” — fashion that will fit every body and make you feel confident every day. It’s this ethos that has informed their approach to building a vast and inclusive plus-size collection of high-quality jeans. 

These jeans are constructed with both a faux fly and faux front slit pockets for smooth silhouette — but don’t worry, the ones in the back are functional. The durable, machine-washable stretch fabric comes together with cotton, polyester, rayon, and spandex. 

As the name suggests, bootcut jeans leave enough calf space to fit around boots. This pair from Liverpool — with tonal stitching, belt loops, and slight fading — is an incredibly versatile option that deserves a spot in your collection of staples.

You can’t go wrong with ankle skinny jeans that hug your beautiful curves and pair just as well with over-the-knee boots as ballet flats.

Good American

Good American has innovated since day one with size-inclusive jeans that span 00 to 24. Also, every product is shown on three size ranges of models to make it that much easier to find your perfect fit that’ll help you feel the most at home in your body. 

We can’t get enough of the vintage detailing on these jeans, from the heavy distressing to raw hems. Available on Nordstrom Rack.

Talk about a show-stopper. These tie-dye jeans (which, BTW, are still machine washable) will add an extra oomph to your collection of dark and navy pairs.

FYI, this denim brand also has a line of what’s called Good American Good Waistjeans that are ultra high-rise and made with stretch fabric that cinches at the waist. It’s available up to size 32, and we most DEFINITELY recommend checking it out.

NYDJ

All NYDJ jeans are made with their proprietary LiftTuck® Technology, which has a criss-cross design in the front and curve-contouring construction to perfectly flatter your beautiful curves. 

This high-waist cropped pair is a variation of NYDJ’s best-selling super skinny fit jeans. They offer the perfect amount of stretch and comfort — plus a slight lift in the back. Oh! And the Cool Embrace denim has moisture-wicking technology to keep you cool all day long, in addition to a cotton, polyester, lycra, elastane combo to keep things comfy.

Thinking ahead to winter? Look no further than NYDJ’s velvet straight leg jeans in dark red — coined “grenache” — with a long inseam (32″).
