One of my readers recently reached out about where to buy white jeans that actually fit and are not see through. Since I’ve had decent luck finding regular denim, I didn’t think my search would be too difficult. However, I was in for a surprise. Over the last two weeks, I went to store after store and tried brand after brand; and almost always encountered my classic pear problem - jeans that fit my thighs and rear, but were too big in the waist! (Sizing down never helps because then the thigh/rear area is too tight and uncomfortable.)
After comparing the measurements of all the styles I tried on, I noticed that jeans with a waist measurement of 30’’ or 31’’ were often the styles that were too big in the waist. (However, keep in mind though that the actual “cut” or “fit” of the jean is also a factor in whether or not they will fit you. So I'm only relying on one data point when I say this.) On average I noticed these waist measurements (30’’ or 31’’ ) were reoccurring theme when I look at the jeans that did not work for me. One thing that was not as much on an issue for me denim shopping this time was length. It seems that more and more brands are making ankle length jeans, which in petite world are regular length jeans for us.
While it was definitely a struggle to find white jeans that fit me - I promise that not all hope is lost. In this post, I’m sharing the white denim styles I recommend and which ones I’d stay away from. Also to make my product reviews easier to read, I’m introducing a scale that highlights the key attributes of each style so you can quickly know if it will work for you. So keep scrolling for all of your white denim needs.
