Even if you think you are one shape don't let that prevent you from checking out the other styles! We have found that many ladies love all 3 fits! If you aren't sure what style or size you need we suggest ordering all 3, you can always return what you don't need. You will receive Free Shipping both ways if you order $99 or more!

Suggestions on How to Size Jeans:

The best way to determine a size that will fit is to go to the closet for your favorite pair. Button and zip the jeans and lay them out completely flat, legs spread and straight on a flat surface. Make the measurements as described below and compare them to the closest fit depicted on the charts below. We suggest that you stretch the jeans in the area and direction you are planning to measure. Then release them and let them come back to the size they would be when you are wearing them. Stretching makes sure that you are measuring all the material, it straightens the denim and you stretch the jeans back to the "wearing size" and not that just-dried-in-the-dryer-tighter-fit.

1)To measure your waist size stretch the waistband 1-2 times, let it relax, then measure horizontally across the inside of the jean. Double the measurement for the circumference of the waist.
2) Upper hips: Measure horizontally across openings of front pockets, right to left edge of the jeans. Double for the circumference.
3) Lower hips: Use same procedure as #2. Measure horizontally across jeans, 1-2" above bottom of zipper. Double for circumference.
4) Thigh: Measure horizontally across the thigh at 3-4" below the crotch seam. Double for circumference.
5) Front rise: On the front of the jeans measure vertically from crotch seam to the top of the waist band.
6) Back rise: Measure from the crotch seam to the top of the waistband on the back of the jean.
7) Inseam: Measure from the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg. Straighten the seam down the leg to get a better measurement.
8) Bottom opening: Measure the flattened leg from side to side on the inside of the opening and double for circumference.
