I love wearing jeans. I don’t know if it’s because of my emo days in high school or the fact that I can be more active in them while still looking put together but either way, they’ve always been a staple in my wardrobe.
But trying to find the right pair of jeans for your body type is a struggle. There’s so many options. High rise. Low rise. Skinny. Straight Leg. Flare. And if you have more of an athletic build good luck. With a smaller waist and thicker stronger legs than most, it’s rare to find something to fit exactly how you need it to.
But don’t give up just yet.
Recently, I did a LOT of shopping for the perfect pair of jeans to flatter my curvy new figure. And after a few returns back to different stores I now know which jeans fit women on the smaller side but with thicker thighs the best.
So if you’re curvy and fit like me, here are the best jean options for you.

These jeans are my all time favorites. If you like true denim you’re going to love these. They are great quality denim with the ability to stretch in the butt and legs for a flattering look. The best part is that even though they’re technically a skinny jean, they fit like a slim fit, leaving room for the calves to move. And I’ll admit that I wear these at least twice a week. Of course with any true denim jeans you have to break them in a little, but once you do they fit sooo good.

The first pair of jeans that ever fit me perfectly were these Fashion Nova jeans. They hug every curve, the high waist touches your belly button, and the length perfect if you have long legs like I do. And they actually have lasted me a long time. I like to keep at least one pair of super skinny jeans in my wardrobe.

When I tell you that I wore these jeans until the small holes were giant, I’m not kidding. And then I bought another pair to replace them. These are perfectly designed distressed jeans that hold a special place in my heart.

Pac Sun created a perfect example of a classic straight leg jean, which are trending at the moment. With more than enough room to move around in, I understand why fashion is moving towards the exact opposite of the skinny jean. I love pairing these looser jeans with tube tops or cropped racer back tanks.

Although the name of these jeans aren’t the most appealing, the look of them is great. Another straight leg option for the women who prefer a bit more of a loser fit. They are easy to dress up or down, and have become the newest addition to my jean collection. And to my Levi lovers out there, try to catch them during a sale. That way you can get great quality jeans while keeping some coins in your new pockets.
