Petite sizes are more proportional for those of us who are vertically challenged, so I would get the petite too. Your suggestions will help me to find the perfect wedding dress because I did not know how or what to look for to achieve perfect look for me. You are my favorite magazine. I really admire your accomplishments. I think regular pants are tailored to someone closer to 5'7" and wearing 3 inch heels, considering that the inseam is often 34" these days.
Do they have a slimmer fit? Cynthia — I think heels are definitely factored into the inseam, which I think is a good idea. I have a friend who is 5'7", with really long legs for her height, and she wears 34" inseam pants with flats! She has the hardest time finding jeans to wear with heels. She needs those super long super-model jeans just to wear her cute heels! Hi Anonymous — I've found the fit in the thigh of regular Paige jeans to be slimmer than the petite styles I've tried on.
I'm also a big fan of bootcut jeans, and for some reason Paige boot cuts are more like bell bottoms on me. I prefer the size of boot cut I get from chopping a few inches off the bottom of the regular sizes. Maybe I just haven't found the right petite style yet. And just for the record, I've tried other petite styles from other brands as well, like 7's and Citizens.
I had the same problem with the knees being too low when I had faded bootcut jeans. Especially when they make the knee part slimmer than the rest of the pant, it ends up more towards my calf and it looks funny after it's hemmed. Now, I'm going for straight leg styles that are one color all over so it's not so noticeable.
Have you tried Allison Izu's jeans? They're only available online right now unless you're in Hawaii. Of course, they'll need tailoring, but if you've never tried DL, this is a great price to check them out. Very stretchy and in my opinion, cut small! Besides, I totally agree that petite jeans just fit weird. I get frustrated when manufacturers don't get that petite does not just mean short.
It's all about proportion. I too find that bootcuts work better by just chopping off the length because it naturally adjusts the proportion of the leg opening. Finding jeans that aren't baggy in the knee is a major concern of mine. It's almost the most important thing to me — everything else is pretty fixable. I had two pairs of Paiges years ago that were perfect, but had to give them up because the rise was just too low and the size I had been wearing were just a little too small I put on about 7 pounds since then and the next size up fit weird.
If they weren't so stretchy I would say Delias jeans are great. Very narrow in the knee and run small. They tend to stretch quite a bit though and the colors are a little off. But they're uber cheap and so I keep buying them! I am a little taller than you between 5'3 and 5'4 but I have found Joe's Jeans petite cut provocateur in size 24 to work well for me and not require alteration! Thought it might be something for you or others reading to check out.
I know this is an old blog, but thought I can mention anyways. I'm 5'2, 95 lbs. The jeans that fit me really well are AG Angel jeans. Only the Angel fits, everything else fit funny, the Legend works sometimes. I even saw a pair at Marshalls for 20 bucks in size 24! I'm glad to hear about AG jeans. I have a friend who swears by them! I'll have to give them a try.
