Shopping for Plus Size Petite Jeans and Clothing Online
When you are petite, finding clothing that doesn't drag on the ground can be challenging and when you're short and plus size, it's nearly impossible to find garments tailored for a petite plus frame. But never fear, I'm here to take on the challenge of shopping for petite plus size jeans and clothing.

Prior to my blogger life, I never wore jeans. I genuinely didn't know where to even find petite plus size jeans and I hate the way jeans looked when they are hemmed by a tailor. Over the course of my four-year blogging career, not only did I discover brands that already offered petite plus sizes but also more brands have began making these products during that time. 

Plus size petite jeans aren't the only challenge. Maxi, midi and mini skirts can all look way off when they aren't made for a petite plus body. This is where working with designers and brands on custom products is an amazing solution. My list below will provide is made up of brands that I've worn on my 5'1" frame and can attest to in terms of fit. I'll do my best to keep this updated as I try more out and if you have any suggestions for brands I should try, let me know in the comments below!

1. Torrid

Torrid is the only plus size brand that I know that offers extra short jeans - a true game changer for plus size petite babes. Since some short plus size jeans are still a little too long on me, I really appreciate the extra short plus size jeans and pants offered by Torrid PLUS they come in extended sizes. I don't know anyone else making extra short jeans in a size 30 or even in a size 12 for that matter. In addition to petite plus size jeans and pants, they also offer petite plus size maxi dresses also up to a size 5.

 2. Talbots

Shopping for Petite Plus Size Jeans

Talbots is new to the plus size clothing market but they have been doing classic petite clothing styles for years. Imagine my excitement when I realized they would be offering a wide variety of styles (think 12 pages of results) in plus size petites! I had the opportunity to try out their petite plus size denim jegging and these have quickly become my go-to pair of jeans! They are just the right length and have a great amount of stretch for babes like me who have wide hips and a smaller waist. In addition to petite plus size jeans, they offer everything from workwear and blouses to dresses and shorts in plus size petite. Sizing is 14-22 and items are designed for plus size women 4'11" to 5'4". 

3. Lane Bryant

Shopping for Plus Size Petite Jeans and Clothing Online

 Last year, Lane Bryant launched a new plus size petites collection where all items were specifically tailored for a plus size frame. Rather than just shortening hemlines, they really thought of everything. Lane Bryan'ts petite plus size clothing features proportional armholes and necklines, shorter torso lengths, and tailoring in the hips, knees and thighs. One of my biggest frustrations with hemming regular length jeans is that the length is never the only place that they don't fit so I so appreciate this attention to detail. I got this petite denim dress and was so happy that it sat above my knee for a change! They offer everything from tops and maxi dresses to skirts and joggers in sizes 10-28 petite.  

4. eShakti

If you are looking for the widest variety of clothing items that can be customized to your exact measurements, then eShakti is a great option. Last year, I had the option to customize my own plus size petite clothing and I picked a denim wide leg jumpsuit and a pair of flare jeans - two items that are normally impossible to find in the right length. They offer a wide variety of pre-made items in fun prints and cuts that you can then either choose to customize by length only or have made completely to your custom measurements. You can also adjust sleeve length, remove pockets, or change the length of the dress. Items are not shown on plus models so plus size blogger reviews are crucial here. They offer styles in sizes XS - 6X (0-36). You can also eShakti pieces on Amazon!

5. Silver Jeans

Shopping for Plus Size Petite Jeans and Clothing Online

Silver Jeans was all the rage during my high school days but at the time, they didn't offer plus sizes. Now, they offer the same high quality jeans they became known for available up to a size 26. Their plus size jeans come in a variety of styles from boyfriend jeans to cropped. You can filter by in seam to find which ones come in short. My favorite pair is the ELYSE in the 27 inch inseam. They also offer 22, 25, and 26 inch inseams for all my fellow short plus size babes. 

6. Macy's

Macy's offers a range of plus size petite clothing items from popular brands. They offer petite plus size jeans from Levi's and Lucky brand. Length-wise the Levi's 711 style were perfect for me but the cut didn't work for my frame. And there's definitely a few other dress and tops in petites I would totally try. They offer styles up to a 28 petite or a 4X. 

7. Christian Omeshun

A lot of independent designers offer custom sizes but one designer really killing the custom game is Christian Omeshun. She offers custom plus size clothing in everything from basics to wedding gowns. I recently wore a custom Christian Omeshun dress to Lifestyled Honors in Atlanta and it was my absolute dream dress. I have also worn her styles quite often for #DOPEatAnyHeight and her pieces work for both myself at 5'1" and Ramona at 6 feet. If I want a wide leg jumpsuit in petites or a midi skirt to actually be a midi length, I know I can count on Christian Omeshun. Extended sizing is available and you can use code "READYTOSTARE" to take 15% off your order from CO. 

8. JCPenney

Shopping for Plus Size Petite Jeans and Clothing Online

JCPenney is one place that I consistently shop. While their site isn't the easiest to navigate for petite plus size clothing, they offer a lot of options. You can find petite plus size jeans from Levi's, dress pants from Worthington and leggings from their in-house brand, Boutique+. The easiest way to shop their plus size petite clothing is to use the size filter in the left sidebar. Styles are available up to a 26w short or a 24w petite. 


Shopping for Plus Size Petite Jeans and Clothing Online

ELOQUII is one of my absolute favorite brands and while their petite offerings have been really limited as of late, I am putting them on this list based on the good faith that more plus size petite pieces will be on the horizon. I have the ELOQUII Kady pants in a short fit and they are a great pant for professional wear. I find their neoprene skirts to be too long for a petites but I have the ruched miracle skirt in two different colors and the length is perfect. The white floral jumpsuit pictured above is not petite but totally works with a small heel for a petite frame!

10. Simply Be

Simply Be is the one retailer on this list where I haven't specifically tried a petite piece from but I have found the fit on other pieces to be great so I thought it was worth an add! For petite plus size tops and tunics, Simply Be has a variety of options. They also petite cropped jumpsuits and wide leg trousers in a short fit. You can also use the sidebar option to search for jeans by short hems. 

This list is by no means totally exhaustive but I hope it's good place to start. The most important thing that I want my fellow petite plus size babes to know is that your height doesn't have to be a limitation to your personal style! If you want to wear those jeans, don't settle for jeans you have to roll up. 

Let me know if there's any more retailers I should try and I will add them to the list.
