I just bought a pair of bootcut Tommy Hilfiger jeans that fit like a dream!  I’m an hourglass shape and they’re almost a 100% perfect fit on me.

I’m 5’4 and I find that those jeans fit me really well 🙂

If you want jeans that fit, you get them tailored. 

Not because you are a pear or apple or whatever, but because that’s what the people in magazines and on tv do to look like that.

Buy something cheap that fits your hips. Pay for it to have it taken in at your thighs. You’ll look like a million bucks and you’ll stop wasting so much time.

Levi’s and lane bryant jeans work best on me.

i’m a 5’8″ hourglass and have a hard time with length so you’re not alone in that department (you’d think normal length would fit 5’8″ but noooo). i always have to get my jeans hemmed. i don’t know what your budget is but paige jeans are awesome. they’re stretchy so they hug your shape better and have a higher waist than other brands. if you’re on a budget, try old navy. for the price you pay there, you can get them altered to fit you perfectly.

@bellaluna290:  I have a big problem with AE.  I didn’t when I was in high school and college, but since I gained weight, they just don’t expect my thighs at all. If I buy them to fit my thighs/butt, the waist is huge.  🙁

Honestly, I’ve had luck with Baby Phat jeans and 7 for all Mankind.

I think the key is finding a pair that are stretchy enough to buy fitted for the waist and will expand for the hips.  Trust me, I know. lol…

I buy my jeans at AE, but only out of convenience. they are cheap, fit moderately well, and they last. I wish they didn’t stretch out so bad though! I am constantly pulling my pants up. I also wish they carried more mid rise styles. 

ETA: as a short person, I really like that AE has a short version of all their styles. The short always fits perfectly in length.

Coldwater Creek, because the are the only company that has Long jeans in a 35″ inseam and curvy fit jeans.  Other brands are an inch or two too short

I buy the Stella cut at Express and they work pretty well for me.

I’ve been meaning to try AE or Gap for jeans, but I mostly have crappy Old Navy jeans.  I’m an hourglass and their Diva cut is usually spot on.  Says on their site that they are meant for a “straight” body type, but I always have back waistband gappage with the ones they say are for curvy body types.

I’m 5’6.5 I don’t think am petite , but i have a lot of hips. I like the jeans from guess and express…..they have to be stretchy otherwise they would be too big from the legs or to tightfrom the waist/hip (where you zip it)
