Recently, we’ve been been on a misson to help you find your most flattering denim ever. That means searching high and low and polling our team of experts on how to nail the proper fit for every body type—from fuller thighs, to round tummies, to big butts. Up next? Long torsos.
Women with long torsos aren’t necessarily tall; they just have a longer midsection, which makes finding a proper pair of denim to sit comfortably on their hips hard to come by. Our trusted allies in denim from Lucky Brand, 7 for All Mankind, and AG are here to share the best jeans for women with long torsos in the guide below.
