Plus-Size Skinny Jeans for Every Budget

Shout out to Helena, a fellow blogger over at for inspiring this post. She asked me on Twitter what some of my favorite plus-size skinny jeans were. Then I realized, this is not the first time someone one has asked me that question. So, I set out to do a little research and see what the internet had to offer us in the skinny jean department. 

I immediately found out that there is a lot of denim out there. Like…a lot. When writing up this post, I decided to stick with dark blue denim and choose only one style from each brand that I found. Then I separated them by price points—$30 and under, $50 and under, $80 and under, $100 and under, $150 and under, and $150 and up.

In the end, I only rounded up 22 pairs of plus-size skinny jeans for your viewing pleasure. A lot of these are available in different colors, lengths, and washes. And some of the brands offer more than one style. I just wanted to give you an idea of your options and what is available whatever your budget may be.

And in case you’re wondering, my personal skinny jean favorites are Torrid’s Ankle Zip Stiletto Jean and City Chic’s Apple Skinny Jeans Regular. I have worn them out and they are still going strong.

    You know my fave is the Torrid Stiletto Ankle zip jeans! I figured out they have different lengths online and the petite length fits me the best. I have three pairs and they’re still going strong! No holes near the crotch which is what happens to all my other jeans. 🙂


      Yes I do! The quality of these is great!

    Wow! Thanks Monique, what a great post! Now I just have to go and buy one. I’m so used to boot cut that skinny feels super weird. I’ll let you know what I go for 😀


      Awesome! Thanks for the idea Helena!!
