12 Perfect Pairs of Jeans for Curvy Women, No Matter What Your Style

Historically speaking, jeans shopping has been a particularly fraught event for plus-size girls. Luckily, as brands (slowly) catch on to the idea that women sizes 12 and up deserve to look good too, we now have nearly as diverse a range of style options as our straight-size sisters. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best on the market, from super skinnies to funky flares.

Basic Blue Skinny Jeans

Lucky Brand Plus Ginger Cropped Skinny Jeans
$99 at Bloomingdale’s

This well-reviewed pair goes with everything.

“Boyfriend” Jeans, No Dudes Required

Kut from the Kloth Distressed Boyfriend Jeans
$98 at Macy’s

Slouchy without being sloppy, and distressed without being shredded.

Some Just Slightly Fancy Slacks

High Rise Wide Leg Denim Pant
$90 at Eloquii

Wear these elegant belted trousers for casual Friday.

Dark, Destroyed Denim

City Chic Rock ‘n’ Roll Destroyed Skinny Jeans
$89 at Nordstrom

Pairs nicely with a killer cropped biker jacket (they make those in plus-sizes now, too!)

A Bright White Pair

Melissa McCarthy Seven7 Pencil Ankle Jean
$89 at Lane Bryant

Perfect for a classically preppy look, Labor Day be damned.

A Gamine Jean

Kady Fit Denim Pant
$90 at Eloquii

With their tailored taper and buttoned back pockets, this pair is full of boyish charm.

Modern Mom Jeans

Florence Authentic Straight Leg Jeans

A comfy, retro fit if skin-tight’s just not your thing.

Posterior-Framing Straight Legs

NYDJ Marilyn Straight Leg Jeans
$109 at Nordstrom

This timelessly styled pair is designed to hug your curves.

Vintage-Inspired Bell Bottoms

James Jeans Juliette Flares

Bootcuts for a Bangin’ Butt

Kut from the Kloth Natalie Bootcut Jeans

Somewhere between straight and flared — not that anyone will be looking at your ankles.

A Leg-Lengthening Pair

Rebel Wilson x Angels The Looker Jeans

Seams running down the front of each leg will make you look crazy tall. Your standard step hem could never.
