Petite Ladies, Where do you buy good jeans? Or pants or anything good? I am petite and small. I have a tiny waist and bigger butt (ten inch difference). I like to find clothes that fit my shape, but I know I have to get the waist taken in no matter what. Are there any brands you recommend? Just any advice? I don't like to shop, but need to get new clothes (some casual and some professional). I thought I'd check in here.
Try kohls. They carry 'petite short'- for women who are petitie and 5'3 and under. Inseam is about a 27-28.0
How short and small are you? That might help you get some answers. I know plenty of stores that may carry what you need...0
Oh, thanks. I didn't realize people had responded to this. I am 5'2" and I wear a size 0 or a size 2 usually and then need to get the waist made smaller (unless if they are yoga pants).0
okay so i'm weeks late on this thread, but if you're still wondering ... delia's has a lot of different styles and rises with inseams as low as 26 inches. i'm 4'11 and 120lbs and i fit perfectly in size 5 with a 28 inch inseam. there's plenty of room for my butt and thighs, and they're not so low rise that i have to keep pulling them up.0
I buy them at express. They are a bit pricy but are great quality and fit a curvy figure nicely.0
Thanks Ladies, I still need to go shopping this month, so I appreciate the info!!0
Im a 2 or a 4 depending on the brand, but just like you, I have a 10 inch difference between waist and hips! Being short doesn't help anything either! My favorite jeans are Paper Denim and Cloth, James Jeans, Eddie Bauer and Loft. I don't mind Old Navy jeans sometimes either.
The thing is, I usally buy my expensive designer jeans at the Goodwill. Its not hard for me to find $150 + jeans for $7.99 in perfect shape. On occasion I find Jcrew and Banana Republic, but they are usually a little too low cut for my shape.... At my store, the section with sizes 0-4 are always full!
. Loft jeans I always buy new, and they a great petite section! But you have to size down in that brand!
* I stay away from most cheaper jeans because they stretch out like crazy! I can't do Express or Delia's due to the low quality denim they use!0
Gap petite jeans are great, and probably the best fitting jeans I've found as far as length and cut especially the "always skinny" ones.0
I'm a 4 short at American Eagle, I have loved AE jeans for years, and short sizes are relatively easy to come by.
I just bought a pair this weekend, they are on sale for $25-$30.0
If you like Old Navy, try the Rockstar jeans, or the Diva. They have SKinny fit and bootcut.0
Yay!!! So many great places for me to look. I really appreciate it. Shopping is daunting to me, unless I have an idea of where to go look. Thanks!0
I like Gap's curvy jeans
the ankle size is perfect!0
Thanks everybody. I have taken note of all this info for my future shopping. I ended up getting jeans from the petite section in Banana Republic. One pair is darker boot cut, the other pair is a lighter blue skinny jean, they are size 00.0
