This is written by Amanda, who is a childhood friend and was given a pair of petite jeans in exchange for writing this review. I'm too tall to review petite jeans myself! :)
Worst things to experience for me: 1. wet socks; 2. bra shopping; 3. jeans shopping…until I discovered Search By Inseam!
For me, it has been challenging since junior high school to find jeans that fit my inseam. Then, since my curves have grown curvier in my thirties, the challenge to find jeans that fit both my waist and inseam – and that don’t have too much stretch that cause sagging crotch – has become even greater.
Finally though, the solution has been found! Eddie Bauer StayShape Jeans live up to the promise to be jeans that “fit you perfectly, and always keep their shape.” I have been wearing the petite jeans with a 30 inch inseam, straight leg, and dark wash once a week for just over a month. The jeans have been washed a few times and have kept their shape.
Initially, I was shocked at how dark the dark wash really was. All my other dark washes at least have had a faded area at the top of the thighs. Once I got over the shock of an all-over dark wash, I found that I really had several items in my closet that work well with the look, and it’s a more professional look than the others in my collection.

I chose straight leg because everything else I have is either skinny or boot cut and I wanted something more versatile with my footwear. I can wear the jeans with flats, ankle boots, long boots (under the pant leg – haven’t tried over the leg yet and probably won’t) and on those days when I’m walking right after work or running errands with my four year old, sneakers.
Did I mention that the jeans really are comfortable? No sagging crotch. The waist band stays in place – no hiking up the waist every time I stand up or as I’m walking.
Best things to experience for me: 1. hugs and snuggles with my son; 2. everything about being a mom to my son; 3. jeans shopping through Search By Inseam.
