Body:
5'2" (short torso/overall)
density and girth like Hilary Duff


Approved and owned and optimum for butt/thigh flattery and leg elongation:

Seven, Flare, stretch? -- 2% Lyrca (hemmed 3")
Joe's Jeans, Lover Style (hemmed 1.5")
COH, Naomi (hemmed 3")
True Religion, Joey (hemmed 2.5")
Hudson (love 'em! --they don't stretch out with time, like the COHs and Sevens)

All look GREAT with either flip-flops or heels.

No:
Joe's Jeans, Rocker Style
Blue Cult
Most jeans under $100

All for now.

Well, I wouldn't normally go into this store, but I have a great pair of jeans from American Eagle. Several people with pretty different body types suggested them, so I tried some on and was pleasantly surprised.

yea i tried on my friends AE jeans once and they were great.
i asked her about the style, but she didnt know the name..
and i was too lazy to go into their store and try on every single pair...

I love AE jeans as well, mainly because they're not too expensive and come in various lengths to suit my short legs
If you are looking for a particular pair that your friend owns but do not know the style, you can check one of the tags located on the left hip area of the jeans for the style# and just look for it in the store


Body:
5'1"
pear shaped figure
long torso
short legs: 29"-30" inseam

Yes:

American Eagle
Frankie B
YMI
Gap Ultra Lowrise

No:
Express
Seven
almost any other brands that don't come in short lengths

I hate having to get my pants hemmed before wearing them, so I usually only go for the brands that come in short lengths. I'm really starting to love the distressed True Religion Joey jeans, but I havent bothered to try them on or anything since I know they'll be too long. If anyone owns a pair, I'd really like to know how the sizes run (true to size, small, etc).

Oy! I'm positively obsessed with jeans, only I can never find a perfect pair...


Body: 5'8"-5'9", unwomanly freakish bean pole figure, no hips, no butt, ideally a 37" inseam or so, but always have to settle with 35.5" -36"

Yes:
- 35.5" Antik Denim Jeans (they say it's 35.5", but for some reason, they're longer on me than 36" ones)
- 36" 7's
- 35.5" Chip & Pepper Jeans
- 36" Hudson's Supermodel Jeans (38" is alright, too)

No:
- Blue Cult Jeans (I still can't get over how horrible I looked in these, the thigh parts were all puffy, and the bottom of the jeans were a good inch and a half above my ankle)
- AG Jeans (There are little unfilled pockets of space where the hips are supposed to go, too loose on me and very unflattering)
- Paige Denim
- Notify Jeans (make my legs look weird)
- Salt Works
- True Religion

Soso:

- 34" Miss Sixty Jeans (skinny leg ones, no bootcut)
- 35" Paper Denim and Cloth
- Yanuk Jeans
- Frankie B.
- Joe's Jeans (if cuffed)
- Diesel Jeans


Only problem is that I don't really like some of the jeans that fit me, so I usually end up wearing ones from the "soso" category. Hope that helped!

Re: The Denim Review : femme
I am 5'2 with short legs (31" inseam) and 27/28 waist...average asian body type...(read: no ***, generally slim, but not skinny).

Oh HELL Yeah!

-Blue Cult: Weekender Flare, Katie...this brand is just right for me!
- Seven7 (not seven for all mankind)...found a pair of skinny Seven7 jeans at loehmann's for $20 and in the clearance rack!!
-Citizens of Humanity

So so...

-Seven for All Mankind: I don't get the hype about these jeans...I bought a pair a long time ago, but it made my butt look flat
- Levi's: I love this brand and it's not expensive...but the jeans are always loose in the upper thigh and right under my butt.

HELL NO
-True Religion
-Paper Denim & Cloth
-Anything for long and slender legs

- A&F -- come in 36' but as thei shops are crowded, I do not bother trying
- PDC -- HUGE dissappointment. wen I bought them, they were 36', after washing according to instructions, they became...mmmm...26'?
