Grab your tape measure and arm yourself with the right information for online shopping! Sizes mean a whole lot less than actual measurements and will help you get the right fit first time.
Lady K Loves specialises in high waisted jeans with a vintage look. Featuring a high waist which sits on your natural waistline. Lady K Loves cut jeans for a range of women’s bodies. Which means there’s bound to be a style which works for you. We love thick denim, but we’re not afraid of a little stretch to the denim. It can help you get a great fit.

So which to go for?
Hug Me Baby
You’ve probably heard a lot about our Hug Me Baby jeans, these are cut for girls with a big difference in their waist and hips, in this case, 12″+. Their waist is a whole dress size smaller than their hips, for instance, a UK 12 waist and UK 14 hips. Part of the reason these jeans get so much love is because, if that is your body shape, it’s really hard to get things to fit. If you are in-between sizes, these may feel a bit tight by the end of the day at the waist, or the hips might feel a bit baggy. If your waist is one size in the chart below, but your hips would fit the size below, go for our Classic jeans. Check out the size chart below for full details

Our Classic Jeans, were the first one we designed. Based on a traditional jeans design as we know it in the modern world, with a central front zip and back pockets. These are finished off with our signature sweetheart yoke, helping give a visual lift to your backside. The idea was to produce a slim to tight leg with a high waist. When we first brought these out, you couldn’t find that anywhere! Classics jeans are the basis for the HMB’s however they’re cut for a more ‘standard’ curvy body (as if there’s such a thing as a standard body!). These look great with a difference of 10″ between waist and hips. If you can wear a normal dress size, these are for you. Most girls will be this style.

Need a petite fit? Say hello to our Polly, named after Polly Pocket, they are just perfect for those with a petite figure, a short torso or if you want your jeans just below your natural waistline. They have a 27″ inseam from crotch to hem and a great tight fit. We love them turned up to mid calf with a pair of loafers or lace up ballet pumps. They have our signature sweetheart yoke, and front zip, with dark gold pocket stitching.

Le Wild Jeans
Fancy a wider leg? We love our Le Wild jeans, they are great for boots, or we’ve loved wearing them turned up to mid calf with a pair of loafers or lace up ballet pumps. They have our signature sweetheart yoke, but feature a side zip. They’re cut a little slimmer on the hips. This is great if you who don’t have a big difference between your hips and waist.
