Shopping for jeans can be an endurance test for your patience. In recent years, we have seen more retailers including petite-friendly sizing.

1. Why Fray Jeans Flatter Petite and Short Women

The top edge of the fray is usually a sharp line, which visually tricks your eyes into thinking that it is the hem, which is slightly higher than a regular-length hem. So petite and short women can now enjoy a higher hem without having to resort to only the petite section or tailor.

 

2. Why Step Crop Jeans Flatter Petite and Short Women

Step crop jeans, made popular by MOTHER DENIM, comes with a sharp, higher hem on the front of the jeans, and continues into a lower hem line on the back. Like fray jeans, the sharp front hem plus an already shorter-length crop style jeans makes this silhouette an friendly fit for petite women and a sure winner for style!
