Jeans, we all love them and some of us basically live in them. But which high waist jeans are the ones for you? Grab your tape measure and arm yourself with the right information for online shopping! Sizes mean a whole let less than actual measurements and will help you get the right fit first time.

Lady K Loves specialises in high waist jeans with a vintage look. Featuring a high waist which sits on your natural waist line. Lady K Loves cut jeans for a range of womens 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 and make sure your jeans move and flex with you. We also work with ethical fabric producers and fair suppliers. So you can feel great inside and out.

So which to go for?

Hug Me Baby

Vintage style high waist jeans, high waist tight jeans, jeans for big hips | Hug Me Baby Jeans from Lady K Loves | Vintage style high waist jeans

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 becuase, 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

Classic Jeans

Classic 50s high waist jeans | Vintage style pin up rockabilly jeans from Lady K Loves

Our Classics, were the first jeans we designed. Based on a traditional jean design as we know it in the modern world. With a central front zip andback 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 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.
