Anybody else hate shopping for jeans? I really, really do. I mean, I love jeans…I live in them, but the process of finding a pair that fits my body well, looks good and feels good is totally overwhelming. In the past few years I’ve noticed that the options are improving. With the body positive movement in full force, brands are finally starting to recognize that women come in all ages, shapes and sizes and that we all want to look amazing and feel great too. Keep reading to find out about eight denim brands that are making jeans for ALL women.
You can’t get more classic than Levi’s, but to be honest, until last year every pair I’d ever tried on fit my petite, curvy body terribly. But I randomly walked into an outlet store last summer and found what are now my favorite skinnies. The brand has expanded its offerings with different body shapes, sizes and proportions in mind and continues to offers classic styles along with trendy cuts, so there’s something for everyone.
Kut From the Kloth
Kut From the Kloth offers figure-flattering jeans with tons of stretch in lots of different styles and washes including straight leg, skinny, bootcut and shorts. I love that they make both petite sizes and plus sizes, and feature a variety of different rises, all at a mid price range.
Liverpool Jeans sells soft, stretchy denim in a huge range of sizes and washes, including styles with unique details and finishes like embroidery and fringe. Styles range from traditional to trendy, all meant to flatter a variety of body types. Plus, most are available for less than $100.
My favorite jeans of all time were made by Mavi. A basic dark wash denim with lots of stretch and the perfect inseam for my 5’2” frame. I loved these jeans so much and they were so comfy that I wore them almost daily all the way through my second pregnancy—and no, they weren’t maternity they were just awesome. Mavi makes a huge range of style, but the best thing about the company is that they offer inseams from 28 inches to 36 inches.

Just Black Denim
Just Black makes fantastic quality, durable jeans that seem to fit well every time, and specifically mentions inclusiveness in their company mission statement. The company actually works with a panel of its customers to develop new products and their commitment to producing denim that women love shows. They consistently offer on-trend looks for real women at an affordable price.
Co-created by Khloe Kardashian, Good American is a newer denim line that was specifically developed to cater to curvier women, but has expanded to offer styles suited to various body types with sizes available from zero to 24. Their jeans are spendy, but get rave reviews almost across the board. Basic styles as well as trendier pieces are available.
You might think of American Eagle as a place for your daughter or even your granddaughter to shop, but over the past several years the brand has gained a reputation for making clothes for everyone—every age, every shape, every size, every height. The best part is they’re easy to find, offered at a great price and seemingly always on sale.
Over the past 20-plus years Old Navy and denim have become somewhat synonymous. It seems like most of America swears by Old Navy jeans for at least one member of the family. They offer a huge selection with something for just about every shape and size, including three different inseams for jeans and various inseams for shorts as well. They release new colors and washes seasonally and are often on sale for as little as $15. You really can’t beat it.
