Best Jeans for short people?

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
I'm short 5'4" and all the jeans are too long for me and I can't afford to have them hemmed. Does anyone know of any brand of nice looking jeans for shorties. I heard Eva Longoria has a fav brand in one of her interviews but I didn't catch the name. Please don't recommend petities because I have never found anything cute that was in the petite section. Thanks a bunch!!

LOL. :) I'm 5'0". Levis, Abercrombie, and Hollister all offer short inseams for shorter girls. :) Also, if you shop GAP online, I believe all of their jean styles are available in petites as well (so it's not just ugly jeans in petites).

I know if you buy a pair of jeans from Nordstrom's (they carry a lot of great brands) that they'll hem them for you for free.

hth!

P.S. Getting jeans hemmed really is not that expensive. It depends on where you go and what you want done, but I don't think they would charge more than $15 to get a pair of jeans hemmed.

I found alot of great pants that are petite. And yes Abercrombie, Gap, Levis, Hollister and even PacSun all have jeans for us shorties.

I'm 5'3, and American Eagle's short length jeans fit me well. I don't know if they would work if I were any taller, though.

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

I'll have to check out some of these brands when im in the US, im a shortie too and also most jeans over here hang of me cause most shops dont do smaller than an 8, so whats the smallest waist these jeans come in??

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

I'm 5'4 and whenever I need pants or jeans I go straight to Express. Sometimes they have great sales and I get a couple.
Banana Republic also carries nice ones , but that's more expensive.
You should also check Ann Taylor Loft.

Gap jeans fit me wonderfully, so I guess I would recommend their jeans in the Short length.

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

Usually the smallest they come in is a size 23-24 inch waist (Usually labeled as size 0 or size 00 depending on the brand). hth!

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

keep plenty good belts and high heels, the two in combination help me a lot and I am shorter than you are. I cinch them on my waist so the jeans will stay put. :)

i am 5 foot even or so. I have been very happy with Tilt jean's short size.

The jeans themselves too. durable and pretty, not cheap nor outrageous. i think on sale they can be like 25 bucks a pair.
"petite" size sections often do have jeans that are too matronly, oldschool, or too plain. I don't know where you are from but Ross dress for less has good petite jeans and pants on sale sometimes. oh yeah, and stores that have a "short' size usually have better looking stuff. The inseam will be like 27 or 27.5 inches in the short sizes, usually.
Get those at Tilt jeans Pacsun, it will be at a local mall or PacSun is online too. i patsed a URL but it put up a BS ad haha i took it down.

I take a size 9 in their jeans so i'd say they run large but not VERY much. try some on, if you dohn't like the styles available instore just say you'll come back- and buy the same brand online.
They look very very good. I got a pair of tilt from online in a 9/short and they are still long on me (I wear highheels or boots to help) on you if you are 5 foot 4 they may fit you perfect. the ones I got have sequins stiched are flare and have sequins stiched across the pockets, not too plain for a night out and too drssy for a casual outing. I love em but am gonna learn to them any damned way since I am so petite.

try JC penny or jc penny online, do look at levi's... I liked the 515 bootcut best. You can search in any size on jc penny's. Pay acreful attention to the inseam listing as some makers have certain styles of jeans that will run small or run long...cade in point my very frist tilt jeans. I got them instore, the salesman told me the pair i picked ran small.
The jeans will be comfy and stylish but may be a bit plain.

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

Many brands now come in Short, Average, and Tall lengths, such as the brands already mentioned in this thread. I also know that New York and Company make short jeans -- I am 5'5" and their short jeans barely reach my ankles, so they would probably be great for someone who is about 5'4"! They come in sizes as small as 0, and go up to maybe 14 or 16? I'm not sure what the biggest size is.

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

it only cost me $10 per pair to get it hemmed

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

hemming is too easy! you dont need to pay for that. of course, i guess if youve never done it it isnt that easy. but i love to sew.

anyways, i buy my jeans ususally from delias. they have inseams you can choose. i actually got a pair that were a bit too short. (im 5'3) but yeah, many sites online allow you to choose your preferred inseam..if you just look around.

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

If you are going to spend the money to get the same jeans Eva wears you can afford to have a pair of jeans hemmed. It only costs 10 bucks or so. And it is soo worth it. I have to do it all the time.

I am 5'4" too and can always find Levis the right length for me. I have short legs.

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

Umm...just about everyone that's too short to buy jeans off the rack that fit? lol.

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

I'm 5'4" and love Levis and jeans from American Eagle and Express. Also, ever since I found my right size in them, I really love the jeans from Victoria's Secret in Petite. They tend to run large in the waist so it's best to order a size smaller than you wear in most other brands.

I'm 5 ft. 1 and I usually get something that is low-rise and short (not regular).

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

I'm 5 feet flat and all hips, butt and thighs... I got some nice jeans from Ann Taylor Loft (curvy fit) and a pair of Joe's Jeans Provocateur. I still have to have the Joe's hemmed but if you're 5'4"...you most probably won't need to.

Good luck! I know how tough it is to find the perfect pair. :-)

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

i like lucky brand, american eagle, abercrombie, hollister, and express. they come in short length, about 30" inseam and they fit me perfectly. if you're thin you can even get the jeans from abercrombie kids, their size 14 is the same as the adult size in 00 short but cost only half of the price. i'm 5'3 by the way. :)

Re: Best Jeans for short people?

If you are not too curvy, you may want to try googling online Asian shops and merchants. Alot of popular Korean brands are cute as a can be, and are fairly inexpensive. They cut them so that the hip, knee, and hem fall where they should, not just using an "average fit" model pattern and sizing it down the way they do here in the USA alot.
