Finding the Perfect Jeans: A Petite Plus-Size Journey

Finding the perfect pair of jeans can be a daunting task, especially when you’re a petite plus-size person like me. Standing at 5'2 ½", even short jeans are often too long. As summer approaches, the struggle to find jeans and shorts that fit well and look great becomes even more challenging.

The Struggle is Real

Shopping for jeans as a petite plus-size person means dealing with limited options. Many stores don't carry a wide range of sizes or styles that cater to both petite and plus-size women. The frustration of trying on pair after pair, only to find they’re too long or don’t fit right in other areas, can be disheartening.

A Fashionista's Inspiration

Recently, I watched an amazing video by my friend and favorite influencer, Alicia, who is known for her impeccable fashion sense. You can check out her video here. Inspired by her advice, I decided to try a pair of Levi's jean shorts that she recommended.

The Perfect Find

I went on Amazon and ordered a pair of Levi's jean shorts in a size 40, which is equivalent to a 26 in plus-size mid-rise. To my delight, they were perfection! The fit was just right, hugging my curves in all the right places without being too tight or too loose.

Styling with Confidence

These Levi's jean shorts have quickly become a staple in my summer wardrobe. They pair perfectly with our signature t-shirt from My Beautiful Fluff, creating a chic and comfortable look. You can see how well they fit and how great they look in this video from our last event.

Tips for Finding Your Perfect Jeans

Here are a few tips that helped me find the perfect jeans:

  1. Know Your Measurements: Understanding your body measurements can help you find the right size, especially when shopping online.
  2. Look for Reviews: Reviews from other petite plus-size shoppers can provide insights into how jeans fit and whether they run true to size.
  3. Try Different Brands: Don't be afraid to explore different brands and styles until you find what works best for you.
  4. Consider Tailoring: If you find a pair that fits well in the waist and hips but is too long, consider getting them tailored to achieve the perfect length.


Finding the perfect jeans as a petite plus-size person can be challenging, but it's not impossible. With a bit of patience and the right recommendations, you can discover jeans that fit well and make you feel confident. Special thanks to Alicia for her fabulous advice, and to Levi's for creating a pair of shorts that finally meet my needs.

Happy shopping and here’s to finding your perfect pair!
