3. Madewell Petite Curvy Perfect Vintage Wide-Leg Jean

In my opinion, this is one of the best brands of jeans for petites. Madewell now has a full collection that makes "curvy petite" jeans!

One customer said, "Finally, a pair of jeans I can sit in and be comfortable. Being a curvy petite, it’s been utterly impossible to find a pair of jeans that aren’t so thick and suffocating, yet actually keep up with current trends. These are for those that live in sweatpants & wish there was a Jean that was comfortable enough that you don’t have to wish you could rip them off the entire time you’re wearing them. If you prefer a rigid denim, these are NOT the pair for you (just read the materials). I’ve scoured the shops & feel as though I’ve tried everything with a curvy petite line (Everlane, Abercrombie, etc) & have finally found a pair I would buy multiples of."

Another "curvy petite" jean made from Madewell! These are not too skinny, but not too wide!

One buyer who is 5'1 said, "My first non-skinny jeans purchase! This was a comfortable transition as it still feels slim, but the wider leg opening is a more modern style. Curvy style fit me perfectly and is very flattering - and comfortable! I went with my usual sizing and found them true to size. Madewell suggested sizing down, but I think it would’ve been too tight around the waist if I had. Will purchase the curvy stovepipies in other colors!"

Favorite Daughter is such an under-rated brand! I have these and they make your legs look so good and slim. They have a bootcut version of this that's not cigarette cut.

Finding the Best Jeans For Your Curvy Petite Frame

Finding the best jeans for curvy petite frames starts with understanding your unique proportions and how different styles can complement them (i.e. hips, butt, stomach, etc.)

The goal is to select jeans that flatter your curves while making sure the length doesn't overwhelm your petite frame. Look for mid-rise or high-rise jeans that elongate your legs and highlight your waist. Stretch denim is your friend, because they're comfortable, but fitting.

Pay attention to the inseam length; petite sizes often offer shorter lengths that eliminate the need for hemming. Don't shy away from trying different cuts, from skinny to bootcut, to find what truly enhances your shape. Remember, the dressing room is your best friend—experiment with sizes and styles until you find that perfect pair that feels as if it was made just for you.
