Best High Waisted jeans

If you haven’t bought a pair of jeans in a while. They are always too long, too short, too baggie, too tight, ugly color, too stiff, too stretchy and on and on.

These jeans are perfect! The colors are with a nice soft light blue, the feel of the material is soft, they are stretchy but just enough, they are the perfect length, fit perfectly, button perfectly, I mean I’m still in shock.


They have just enough stretch to be comfortable but not too much to be sloppy or legging-looking. Was so happy to find these on Amazon for a decent price and in almost every size! They last a long time and hold up well to many washings and lots of wear and tear. Highly recommend!

They are incredibly comfortable and have actual pockets. Seriously, the pockets are about 6″ deep and at least as wide. To find a pair of pants that is long enough for my legs, fits my chubby frame comfortably, AND has pockets? I’m in love.

I only wish more of the colors were available in my size. If you are 5’9″ and 305lbs, and the 24 plus long fits me perfectly.


They don’t squeeze, so if you have a smaller waist I’m not sure if they would fit right. I have wider Everything about these pants exceeds expectation!!! The fabric is thick and lifting in the right places. I adore them! So comfy but cute.ps and they also fit perfectly fine in these.

ODODOS Cross Waist Bootcut Yoga Pants for Women, Non See Through Bootleg Sports Gym Flare Workout Pants

These are the softest workout pants i have ever had! They are super comfortable and soft and stretchy. They were a little long on me but by far the best thing I have got from Amazon!


At first it was recommended to size up, and since these are high waisted jeans I decided that’d be safer since Levi’s do tend to run smaller.

If you are a 27″, so I first got a 28″ (Don’t know which size this review is for since I had to get both) and they were too big, didn’t look skinny and were loose around the waist.

Levi's Women's 720 High Rise Super Skinny Jeans (Standard and Plus)

The 27″ fit like a dream. So comfortable, look great and definitely were quick to become my favorite go to night out jean.

If you are 5’8″ and lately wiggle between 135lbs and 145lbs (was a steady 130-135 lbs before Covid lockdowns, so you can tell I snacked a little more)

They have some nice stretch so they can keep up steadily with 10-15lb Covid bounce around lately, Great jeans,
Levi’s is the definitive classic for sure, you can’t go wrong!


KDF Flare Jeans for Women Women's Bootcut Bell Bottom Jeans High Waisted Stretch Slimming Bell Bottoms Jeans

These pants are great for those with short stocky legs like me. Flare pants are always proportionally off and get tight for me knee to mid calf because of my short legs and wider calves, but the proportions of these black flare jeans are great.

Granted they are VERY long even compared to regular jeans so they’ll need hemming, but even folded up the fit and silhouette is still great. They are super stretchy and comfortable.

I would best describe these as ULTRA high waisted, which is what I was looking for. Since they’re stretchy, the waist band does not dig in or create any weird muffin tops. Thickness is thin to moderate, and does have jean look and feel. Highly recommend. Fits true to normal size and their size table and fit looks just as pictured.


These are genuine straight leg jeans that fit the way jeans are supposed to (not too tight, not too loose) and have real, honest to goodness usable pockets, front and back.


I put my hands in my pockets, straight down with my fingers straight and the top of the pocket actually came up to the bottom of my wrist bones with my fingertips touching the bottoms of the pockets.

I just measured my hands and the pockets turn out to be approximately 7″ deep. That’s definitely deep enough to carry a wallet, lip balm, keys or a regular size smart phone. Please, Wrangler, do not discontinue these jeans.


GV pants are never a disappointment! These pants are the only pants I can buy sight unseen AND will fit.

I stopped buying other makers because I always had to take them back because they didn’t fit. It’s weird but my shape is perfect for this brand.

Not clingy like jeggings, but soft like a jeggings material but these are real jeans! Nice and long but not dragging on floor these go just below my ankle. comfortable enough to wear around the house, but nice and flattering enough to wear our with heels!


IF YOU have been on a search for a great pair of jeans, made of a not cheap or too thin denim material, that doesn’t hide my shape but also smooths over/sucks in the parts I don’t want to accentuate.

Nautica Women's High-Rise Skinny Jeans

It was a tough search, jeans just aren’t made how they used to be, but I had to look no further when I found these! I love them, love how I look and feel in them.

They fit well and ate very comfortable for curvy figures with a wide but thin waist.


The color of these pants they’re beautiful they’re tailored well and more importantly they are I kept them I was going to return them I have the” army green”.

GRACE KARIN Womens Casual High Waist Pencil Pants with Bow-Knot Pockets for Work

Love the navy ones and I bought three and i kept the navy ones as those looked the best.

Great elastic waistband and the ankles design is really cute and flattering love the tie that you can tie in boy and do it at side or the front or back depending on how you tie it, Very flattering pants and they look slimming.

What you read in the product description is what you get and what you see in the image is what you get.


These are exceptionally flattering and comfortable! Very soft pull on with butt pockets. Perfect fit.

VIPONES Bell Bottom Jeans for Women Pull-on Ripped High Waisted Flare Jean Elastic Waist Raw Hem Stretch Skinny Denim Pants

They have a good amount of stretch- but not so much that they lose their shape, super comfy & the perfect length to wear with my wedge uggs, without dragging or that sloppy bunching at the ankles.

The elastic waistband because buttons can be problematic at my size & bonus, the button doesn’t add bulge when I wear longer shirts.


I’m always a little hesitant to buy clothes online, who knows if it’s going to fit. These jeans fit perfectly and are comfortable.

WallFlower Women's Flirty Curvy Skinny High Rise Insta Stretch Juniors Jeans (Standard and Plus)

Even after a few washes they still have an odor, presumably from the dye wash. They do fit as expected based on the size, however I would have liked them to be smaller in the waist; because they are tight on my legs and not particularly snug at the waist, anytime I stand up they sag down around my hips and bum which is NOT flattering.

They are stretchy (but don’t stretch out while wearing, which is a problem I sometimes have with jeans) and comfortable, though. Good for the price point, and someone with more of a booty than me would probably not have the sagging problem.

  • These jeans have a flattering fit along with it’s high waist.
  • These jeans are perfect. So comfortable at the waist and still fit good at the hips, They are a bit long but cuff them and they look perfect.
  • Great jeans.
  • Well made.
  • Sized right.
  • Very comfortable.
  • These are high quality jeans. I love that they come in Tall lengths.
  • The rise is sufficient.
  • The waistband fits above the hip so there is no pressure on the hip bones (you know you’re getting old when that becomes a concern).
  • They fit wonderfully and look great on young figures (i.e. my daughter) as well as “motherly” ones.


I know our bodies are all different, but if it helps any of you ladies, my weight is all in my rear, hips and thighs.

The pant leg is a little long but that is all right with me because I like it that way to go with different shoes that I wear. I will be ordering another pair but in a size 17.

WallFlower Women's Size Luscious Curvy Bootcut Mid-Rise Insta Stretch Juniors Jeans (Standard and Plus)

The 18 I have to keep pulling up, but I’m excited to find a pair of jeans that are so comfortable feeling. I would definitely recommend these jeans, if you get a pair and they don’t fit right you will want to return them and get a different size!


They are high rise and skinny, so description is correct, but they ran small I thought compared to other styles of this brand that are more forgiving.

Signature by Levi Strauss & Co. Gold Label Women's High Rise Super Skinny Jeans

They fit better than I expected. Slightly longer than expected but I rolled them up and it has given them a different flare that I like. I am thinking of purchasing another pair as a back up.


They are stretchy and a great fit. The only issue I had was a hole under the belt loop right at the seam after the second wear. Probably will deter me from spending that amount of money again for this Jean. I have a desk job and wear to work so they are not super durable.

Democracy Women's Ab Solution Jegging

A less expensive alternative are the Angels Forever Jeans. They’re more affordable and also look great, flatten that tummy and are comparable quality.


They washed pretty good and didn’t feel any different so I ordered two more, gold and rose gold. Both fit the same as the red but are a little see-through if you bend over so I recommend not wearing dark underwear with these but otherwise pretty good and I will probably order more again.

L.B FASHION High Waisted Jeans for Women Stretch Skinny Colored Long Pants Plus Size Black White Khaki

It’s really hard for me to shop online for pants because I have short legs, a big butt, and a slim waist. I just never have luck finding pants. I’ve also never tried high waisted jeans before because I could never find the right fit in stores.

I took a gamble on this pair and I am so pleasantly surprised. As one reviewer wrote, when I opened the bag I was thinking, “oh no way…” because it looked very slim and the hips/ waist were TINY.

once I put them on, they turned out to be very stretchy, comfortable, and form fitting as well. Note, the white pair is not as thick of a material so people can definitely see the color of your underwear.


Very slenderizing. Nice high waist, no belly overhang. Comfortable.

These GV white jeans hug in all the right places and are the perfect length for my petite height. Size 6~ Not bad for 68 years old! Great value.

Gloria Vanderbilt Women's Amanda Classic High Rise Tapered Jean

These are really nice quality jeans. The fabric is great quality. They are heavier weight and it is true denim material in the white.

These are a slimmer fit….a true straight leg. They aren’t pencil thin or tight, but they fit the body, without a lot of excess and bagginess.

I was concerned when I bought them. I took a chance hoping the fit wouldn’t be too relaxed and big. I’ve had other jeans by Gloria Vanderbilt and they were big and baggy.
