What to look for when buying petite jeans?
The Petite body type comes in all shapes so it is difficult to find the combination of the correct fit verses the right length. The High Street tends to recognise this and offers petite collections for women 5”3 and under. Ilovejeans recommends MAC denim & Almost Famous as they scale down their petite jeans not just the leg length, both available at Petite Affair.
Make sure the waistband works for you and is in proportion to your buy zolpidem online australia body type; also go for a mid rise or a low rise. Again the curved waistband is a must for comfort.
Which Leg Style?
Keep the leg style narrow by going for skinny, straight and slightly boot cut depending on your petite curves.
If you find a pair of jeans that fit like a glove apart from the length, definitely think about having them altered by a good tailor. If they are a skinny or straight leg you won’t loose any of the shape when altered.
If wearing heels with your skinny jeans keep the length long as the excess fabric at the ankle gives the illusion of a longer leg.
Look for a front seam blasted in to the wash giving a sharp effect which again elongates the leg.
Make sure the jeans you choose have flat pockets with a minimum of fuss which keeps the proportion again.
