Shopping for jeans isn’t easy for anyone—our bodies are all so different that it’s tough to find a truly perfect pair straight off the rack. That’s where having a great tailor comes in handy, but it also helps to know which brands best fit you, requiring only a little tailoring if any at all.
I find my body type particularly tough to shop for: I have skinny legs and a small waist but a more pronounced butt than most people expect. This means that most jeans I try on are either too big in the waist or too tight in the rear. But after plenty of trial and error, I’ve finally learned which brands and styles are ideal for me (and other women with this dilemma).
To save you all those extra trips to the fitting room (or the endless online returns), I’m sharing my favourites for this body type, below. Keep scrolling to discover the best jeans for women with a small waist and curvy rear.
