Slim legs and a bigger tummy? We’ve got you covered.
Instead of relying on the size chart (which is incredibly arbitrary and differs brand-by-brand), Revelle focuses instead on shape to curate your personal store filled with a tailored jean selection and size recommendations for each. So if you aren’t a member yet, get on that stat! (It’s totally free, BTW.)
Although your personal store is the best place to find jeans online that’ll fit *the first time* and make you feel the most beautiful and confident in your body, the lists we’ve curated here on the blog can help as well.
We’ve got denim recommendations for petite women, those that identify with an hourglass or pear-shaped body (although we *detest* those phrases), those with strong, athletic thighs and calves, and so many more.
Today, we’re talkin’ jeans for those of us with skinnier legs and a bigger belly—a beautiful body shape that can sometimes be difficult to shop for. So we did research, tried on what feels like a zillion pairs of jeans, and crowd-sourced galore to find the best-fitting pairs. Here’s what we found:
8 Best Jeans For Skinny Legs
These high-waisted jeans are made with a form-fitting, stretch combo of cotton, modal, elastomultiester, and elastane. This way, they fit well around your waist while also hugging your thighs and calves.
If you’re looking for the PERFECT pair of trendy, loose (but not too loose) straight-leg jeans, look no further! We’re obsessed with the look of these jeans from Levi’s. They’re distressed at the knees and they have a perfect mid-rise (rather than being low-rise jeans, like a lot of similar looking pairs), so they’ll elongate your legs without being skin tight.
We’ve found your new favorite white jeans! This pair of high-waisted skinny jeans is slightly stretchy (it’s made with a blend of cotton, polyester, and spandex). They also come in black, so if you love them you can get both colors for all those neutral outfits!
Made with 98.5% cotton and 1.5% elastane, this stretch denim, high-waist jean style from Good American is perfect for those with leaner legs and waistline — as well as those with leaner legs and a bigger waistline (which some refer to as an “apple-shaped body“…cue the eye roll). The raw hems at the bottom of these slim jeans add an extra oomph.
Snag these high-rise jeans in jet black or dark-wash byers blue. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this perfect pair of skinny ankle jeans. They sit high up towards the midsection of the waistline but hug the legs — and would look perfect paired with a blazer or graphic T-shirt.
These mid-rise jeans are on the baggy side…and we love ’em. They flatter skinny legs but also have a relaxed fit, so they’re nice and comfy all day long. They come in a light wash, which gives them an old-school vintage look. Plus, have a 24” inseam (very petite-friendly!).
