Calling All Curvy Collegiettes™: Top 5 Jeans for Plus-Sized Women

Jeans are a wardrobe staple for almost all of us. Unfortunately, they are also one of the most torturous items to shop for.  Every collegiette™ has unique hips, waist, and thighs, but it seems like denim only comes in constricting, boxy and uncomfortable fits, especially if you are a plus-sized woman. To flaunt your best features, you want the pair of baby blues that will hug in all the right places without adding extra bulk or uncomplimentary bunching. Here’s a list of the best jeans to fit a plus-sized frame.

Old Navy “Plus Dark-Rinse Skinny” Jeans (size 16-30) $32.50

The ”Plus Dark-Rinse Skinny” jeans are fantastic because of their slim silhouette. You can wear them with heels when you’re out with the girls or on a date, and they’ll make your legs look fabulous. Plus: no sagging in the butt! The great thing about Old Navy is that they do their best to cater to plus-size women. They even have a whole section on their website dedicated to the category, and if they don’t fit just the way you like, you can mail them back for free. They carry four styles in the “Plus” section: skinny, boot cut, flare, and wide-leg jeans.
 

Gap “Curvy” Jeans (up to size 20) $69.50


These jeans are a personal favorite. They have a solid fit and last a very long time. Gap is known worldwide for its denim, so it makes sense that they would be built to last. They come in a “long” size for taller women or an “ankle” size for the petite crowd. They can go from day to night in a snap. Just add a sparkly top and a simple clutch, and you’re ready to go out for happy hour drinks.
