So You’re a Petite Body – Shape!

Ilovejeans.com has been researching the best fitting jeans for your body shape for over ten years now.

You have come to the right page if you are looking for the best Jeans for your “Petite ” Body Shape.

The petite body shape comes in many different sizes. You may be slim or curvaceous but you are 5’2’ or under, some brands or stores have a petite jeans section where they scale down styles to cater just for you.  The key to dressing a petite body shape is to keep the proportions small.

Skinny, straight leg, crop and baby boot cut are perfect styles for your shape. Pockets should be plain and small, in keeping with your small frame. Denim details are always difficult to wear if you’re a true petite, so below I’ve picked out a mix of staple and statement jeans for you to up your denim game.


SHOP THE PETITE EDIT:


Be sure to stay true to your unique rise measurement. Nothing is worse that spillage or the dreaded muffin top which is caused by the rise being too low, so go for a jean with an 8.5-inch rise or higher.

Always check the fabric contents label for Elastane or Lycra with a nylon mix that will stretch but also recover its shape too.
