Hello everyone! I have been struggling to find jeans for riding. My waist is very small (23 ½) and I have looked through Wrangler jeans, Ariat jeans, and Cowgirl Tuff Jean’s. Nothing. I have no clue where to go or what to buy. If anyone has a similar problem, please let me know where you bought your jeans! I am so frustrated that I might just buy some breeches in my size and start wearing those
Oof!! Its been years since I had that problem!
When I was that skinny you could get those sizes in Rockies or the Cruel Girls also with the x-long(38") inseam.
I don’t even know now as I’m a ways off from that size…LOL!
Kimes Ranch offers down to size 000 in some styles.
Custom jeans seem like they would be a great option for you, and there are so many options and companies with pricing comparable to many of these brands
Are you especially tall? If not, maybe try looking at Juniors sizes. As a bonus, those are probably cheaper than women’s jeans.
When I was s super thin teenager/college student, I had no trouble finding jeans that fit. But I’m only 5’1”. Now that I’m 30 pounds heavier, there are literally no jeans available in my size. Apparently when I gained weight I was also supposed to grow 8”.
Hi, thanks! I was looking for specifically boot cut or riding jeans. (I have plenty of skinny jeans and what they call boyfriend style jeans in junior sizes.) I can’t seem to find western-style jeans anywhere in junior sizes. If that’s what style you wear as well, do you have any brand recommendations from then?
My absolute favorite jeans for nearly a decade were GAP boot cut jeans. Loved them. I don’t know if they still make that style? Not technically “juiniors” sizes, I don’t think, but they’re cut/marketed to a younger crowd.
These days, I wear a lot of Lee and Lands End jeans because they better fit my no-longer-skinny body and are relatively cheap. I did get a pair of Ariats recently that are beautiful but have a waistband that’s SIX INCHES smaller than four other pairs of jeans I own (of four different brands) that are the same size. So apparently Ariat jeans run very, very small. Lol.
Sears has Roebucks boot cut jeans in size 0.
I ride English so not sure how helpful this is, but I wear a 22 breech and all my jeans are Levi’s. They do a 23 and a 24 waist in different inseams and do have a bootcut style, the 725.
I would NOT recommend the “Ribcage” style for riding (or sitting, or eating) as they are insanely high waisted and wide in the leg, but the 725 looks pretty normal!

I agree OP. I it is tough. Now, I am not a zero, but most of the jeans I have been wearing have been a 2 (some 4). They’re hard to find. I also have long legs so that makes it even tougher to find the longer inseam. I also think some of the brands I have been successful with just changed their fitting. I found some 2x36 in the western store in town and I tried them on and they were way too short!! I think it was an Indigo brand, and I have a pair that I love. So I was really disappointed these did not fit the same.
If you can find them!!! I have been wanting to try Kimes Jeans for a while. I’ve been watching for 6+ months in the styles I am interested. They are always out of stock in the lower sizes. I am thinking I would need a 2 or a 4 in a longer length and just can’t find them.
