Jeans for Tall Women - Explained and Remedied

Finding jeans that don’t irritate, ride up in places they shouldn’t and last all of 3 months before bursting at the seams is a common problem for all women, not just the taller ladies. Sometimes jeans are uncomfortable; sometimes they don't sit on you in the right way or they get baggy at the knees and ankles.

For women that are 'height-challenged’ (i.e., super tall) this problem is compounded even further.

A lot of jean manufacturers don’t cater for the taller lady and even though you might find jeans that fit, they aren't necessarily designed to flatter your frame.

This is where Mavi comes into play; we understand the needs of the taller woman and we’ve created jeans that work and conform with your shape. We make our jeans in a variety of cuts and lengths, so you can choose what works best for you.

Jean Styles Suited for Tall Women

It's only logical that certain silhouettes and styles suit taller figures more than others. What accentuates and highlights a shorter individual’s features may prove extremely uncomfortable for any woman over 5’10. 

Let's go through a few denim designs for taller women by Mavi Jeans.

Why the Boyfriend Jean Works for Larger Ladies

If you're tall and have a bit of curve, denim boyfriend jeans will work for you. This denim cut fits around the butt and, most of the time, relaxes at the thighs.

This denim style can help to create a balanced silhouette because oversized denim tends to draw attention away from the leg area - However, denim boyfriend jeans are not that easy to find in tall denim styles. We have a range of denim cuts for tall women regardless of your shape or size.


Get the best of both styles with this high-waisted relaxed, cuffed denim. The Kathleen Jeans balances modernity and simplicity - not too loose, but not too tight either. Made from breathable lyocell and cotton, these jeans are perfect for all-day wear without restrictions or itchiness.

High Waisted Jeans for Tall Ladies

People often say that high rise jeans misinterpret taller women to look taller than they actually are.  This is the case for certain highrise designs that lack taste and design, but the Mavi design team has incorporated mid-rise and high rise silhouettes to flatter a taller frame, elongating the legs in a complimentary way. Our high and mid-rise jeans are designed to sit on the waist comfortably and not too high, avoiding a lengthened illusion.

Wide Leg - Fits Better, Looks Better

Wide leg jeans are back for the 2020s and it’s a homage to how versatile they are. Wide leg jeans, in particular, more modern styles like boyfriend jeans, mom jeans and the recently re-trended flares, stay tight around the butt and then widen at the thighs all the way to the ankles. This highlights a tall woman's features, which quite often gets lost when wearing an unflattering pair of jeans.
