Jeans, the most unforgiving of clothes for a tall plus and often, the most unreliable for sizing. Thankfully, there are a wide variety of brands, both mainstream and boutique, that now carry long plus size jeans even compared to five years ago.

I’m not rich enough to have bought every pair of jeans on this list (I wish), but you can be sure I’ve spent many hours researching the best pairs of women’s plus tall jeans to curate this list based on reviews and inclusive sizings for the tall and the fat! I’ve also highlighted jeans that I’ve personally worn and can attest to.

Only jeans with long inseams and plus sizes are included here. These are the brands that deliver what I feel are the best jeans for tall and curvy women. This list is updated regularly!

The long and the tall of this article:

skinny jeans

Just a foreword here that I traditionally struggle with skinny jeans due to my long legs, large ass, and tummy, but I’ve got one go-to fit that didn’t break my bank and allows me to feel comfortable and confident when it comes to jeans days. 

my choice // torrid sky high skinny jeans

Sizes up to: 30
Inseam up to: 32”
Shop it: Here

It’s no surprise to see Torrid leading the way when it comes to inclusive sizing at affordable prices. These average 4.1 stars for the review score but the commentary on the reviews is overwhelmingly positive: people love them. I’ve had a pair of these for almost a year and the quality is fine. Most importantly, they have good stretch to cover tummies: I’m really comfortable moving around in them and they don’t create an uncomfortable overhang when I bend. They are also genuinely high-waisted and stay up. 

The “tall” fit is only 30 inches on the inseam, but “extra tall” is 32” and fits my 33” inseam perfectly for me to wear a little short on my ankle. In my opinion, when I found these my search for tall plus size high-waisted jeans ended: they are the real deal.

If you have super long legs Simply Tall are for you! The inseam on these is really impressive at 36 inches. The sizing isn’t that impressive as they only go up to a 22, but these have a really good stretch to them and at 93% cotton appear built to last.

No reviews to go off here but based on how highly Avenue are rated in the plus community, the cheap price point on these should get your attention.

athleta sculptek ultra skinny jean

Sizes up to: 16*
Inseam up to: 32.5”
Shop it: Here

Here’s the deal: the regular plus sizes run up to a 28, but if you want the “tall” inseam you can only get these in a 16. I thought I would include these as a) a size 16 is technically “plus size”, b) they have glowing reviews and c) it’s good to see Athleta (a GAP brand) embracing inclusive sizing when it comes to big and tall women’s jeans.

I do laugh at brands that assume that a plus size woman will be of average height and a tall woman won’t be bigger than a size 16 😂 anyway, reviewers cite stretch and softness as the benefits of these, though a lot of reviews say you should size up as is often the case with brands that don’t sell specifically plus sizes.

British tall woman retailer Long Tall Sally is worth a mention (they also now have a US store) because these jeggings are ultra-inclusive and go all the way up to a 38” inseam! At barely $50 they seem like they’d be a value find, though there are no reviews I could find on the website. For me, I’d rather go all out leggings or all out jeans, but these “bum shapers” are a nice option.

Sizes up to: 24
Inseam up to: 31”

I bought a pair of these a year or so back and so far they’ve withstood the thigh rub and maintained their shape pretty well. My inseam is actually 33” but I wear these in warmer weather rolled up anyhow which is fine as I like a slightly cropped pant. I took the size 22 and found they fit true to size, if a little tight round my belly. I probably couldn’t wear them all day for that reason.

torrid bombshell skinny jean – eco dark wash

Sizes up to: 30
Inseam up to: 30”
Shop it: Here

With an inseam of up to 30 inches here, this isn’t for the super tall of us in the room but this does offer the classic distressed look that can be hard to find for anyone shopping for bigger sizes. PSA: we’re not scared of a bit of thigh fat busting out…

The reviews tend to suggest these run a size small and there are concerns about the tightness of the waist as opposed to the classic Torrid sky highs just discussed. This is often my concern with skinny jeans, and they are absolutely not for everyone, but they seem to really hug your figure well if you can handle a bit of tightness.

Wear these with wedges or heels and a tank for that flowy fat girl boss feel.

Torrid make the “cut” again bc Torrid jeans just have that awesome stretch I’ve come to know and love! The tall inseam is 34.5 inches and the extra tall is an awesome 36.5, so there really should be something for everyone in this cut. These jeans have garnered an impressive 4.3 stars out of hundreds of reviews, with Torrid faithful citing the comfort and butt accentuation (yas) as key selling points.

Silver are not a brand I’m uber familiar with but a tall friend recommended I shout them out and their sizing options alone are a good reason to. She said they are true to size though slightly tight around the waist, and very good quality denim. Silver say the jeans are “power stretch” on their stretch meter which I guess means this is their most stretchy option, again, good news!

Also check out their suki mid rise bootcut jeans if you want a black option in this style.

alloy kellie mid rise bootcut jeans

Sizes up to: 20
Inseam up to: 37”

Some absolutely stellar reviews for these Alloy bootcuts: they average 4.9 stars out of over 30 reviews. I love the fraying on the hems at the bottom which adds to the character. One thing to note is that Alloy aren’t a specific plus size brand, but they are a brand that focuses on tall women. Therefore their jeans aren’t long in the butt/tummy area so if you carry more weight there they may not be the best fit. 

A really cool feature of Alloy reviews is that the reviewers are required to list how tall they are, so you can easily equate the jean/inseam size to your height (roughly.)

Ann Taylor pride themselves on quality and this denim offering is no different. Though the sizes only go up to 18 the inseam at 35” is excellent and the few reviews there are say the jeans are absolutely worth it, citing the extra room in the hips and thighs as the selling point to deliver max comfort here.

I’m not sure whether to celebrate jeans that retail at under 30 bucks or be concerned. No product reviews here either, but I’ve included these because Long Tall Sally really cater to the long-legged Queens out there, with inseams at 32, 34, 36 and an incredible 38 inches.


relaxed fit

on the plus side five pocket relaxed fit jean

Sizes up to: 44
Inseam up to: 33”

You may not have heard of On The Plus Side, but if you’re after truly plus size options through the 30s and 40s, they might be your new go-to. These jeans are no exception with only 5 star reviews.

The relaxed fit is ideal for really big legs and doesn’t tighten up around the calves. Reviewers with bigger hips and smaller bellies say these work well too. The regular inseam is an impressive 30″ with the long/tall inseam at 33″ and with 98% cotton, this is quality that is truly size inclusive.

avenue stretch girlfriend jean

Sizes up to: 34
Inseam up to: 32”
Shop it: Here

Coming in at a relatively cheap price point, Avenue’s take on the mom jean is this “girlfriend” fit which runs a little tighter than the usual mom jean, though with sizes all the way up to 34 (hell yeah, Avenue) finding a pair that fits wide hips and bellies won’t be hard. Not a bunch of reviews on these but the verified buyers rate them very highly and I’ve always heard good things about Avenue.

I would question the quality of the jeans as they’re only 57% cotton, and they only run up to a 32 inch inseam which isn’t ideal for those with very long legs. It seems like a useful budget option though.

could do better // old navy extra high-waisted sky-hi jeans

Sizes up to: 18*
Inseam up to: 32”
Shop it: Here

Look, it’s good to see a mainstream brand embracing plus sizes and I’m a big fan of Old Navy for a lot of reasons, but I’ve chalked them up as a “could do better” because while they carry plus sizes up to 30, they only carry tall sizes up to 18. 

Nonetheless, the fit is relatively loose and they would absolutely give you the mom jean feel. These are Old Navy’s “ultimate” sky-hi jeans, going an extra inch higher round the waist than their previous ones. If you are around 5’7”-5’9” and above a size 18 you could probably get away with the regular leg and wear them a little short so I thought I’d include these, but at 5’10” and a bit, they’re not for me personally.


straight leg jeans

I will bang the table for these gems all day. If I’m going to spend a day in jeans, I have no hesitation to pull these on. I’m usually a size 22 but I buy these in a 24 as the 22 runs too tight on my legs. I just accompany them with a simple brown belt to tighten them up top and wear with tennis shoes at home or wedges/booties in the office.

Rated 4 stars out of almost a thousand reviews, it’s clear they’re very highly thought of by a lot of us.

No reviews but based on the fact Avenue have a good offering of tall plus size jeans, and that these are currently on a big sale, they’re worth an inclusion. Available in dark wash, mid wash, and black.

Including these because they give the option to embrace a smarter style, I think they’d look great with black boots for a fall day out, or an option for office-wear day-to-day.


flares

Sizes up to: 26

There aren’t an abundance of flares available to the tall plus, but these really caught my eye as standouts, and the reviewers agree. They’re listed as 4 stars but the majority of reviewers are actually giving them 5 stars.

Couple things to note based on what I’ve read: they run small, to the point where you may need to order two sizes up. Also, the “regular” inseam is 32.5 and goes up to size 26; the “tall” inseam at 35 inches only goes up to a size 16. Aren’t they so cool though? If you can find the fit, flaunt it.


Well, that’s quite a list! If I’ve missed anything be sure to reach out to me or let me know in the comments!
