The Best Skinny Jeans That Are Flattering On ALL Body Types

We've got you covered.

We have a love-hate relationship with skinny jeans. While the body-hugging denim is definitely a wardrobe staple that can be dressed up and down, the task of getting into a pair isn't always so easy.

But alas, the real problem is finding a pair that actually flatters our bodies. As much as we'd love to just find one brand and style that fits us all, there's no chance in hell that our curves will fit the same jeans everyone else's curves fit into.

In an effort to get to the bottom of this issue (pun intended), we asked jean-loving women in our newsroom to tell us which skinnies they love and why they work for their particular body types.

Check out the picks below and tell us about your favorite skinny jeans in the comments section.

1
Best for: Short + Petite
Level 99
"These babies are my denim soul mates. I'm 5' 2" and finding jeans that fit my petite frame without 20+ trips to the tailor is a CHALLENGE. These are both short enough for me and stretchy enough to handle some curves, which is a miracle combination. I love them, I love them, I love them. I can only hope we'll be together forever." - Julia Bush, HuffPost Editorial FellowTo buy: Level 99 Lily Skinny Straight Petite jeans, $98.
2
Best for: Very Tall
Acne Studios
"My favorite are Acne jeans. They are a little pricey, but the thick fabric makes them very slimming and they don't fade or stretch. Also, I'm very tall (5'11") so I like that they are always long enough and proportionate for my body. They are definitely an investment worth making."- Michelle Persad, Fashion Editor
To buy: Acne Studios Skin 5 Black jeans, $200
3
Best for: Tall + Curvy Thighs
Boden
"I am tall, broad and curvy, which means finding a pair of skinny jeans that fit AND are comfortable is nearly impossible. But I found them! These Boden jeans have great stretch (without losing shape), they come in long (amen!), and range in size from 2 to 18. Amazing!" - Julee Wilson, Senior Fashion EditorTo buy: Boden Mid-Rise Zip Ankle Skimmer jeans, $78.
4
Best For: Thin + Hips
J. Crew
"I own two pair of these skinnies from J Crew Factory. I pretty much wear them all week. I have hips but skinny legs and this pair tightens up on my calves (good) and has room to give in the waist (also good)." - Kate Bratskeir, HuffPost Lifestyle Editor
To buy: J.Crew Factory rinse wash midrise skinny jeans, $42.50
5
Best for: Curvy + Petite
Urban Outfitters
"Any of the BDG high-waisted skinnies are my favorite jeans by far. My curvy, 5-foot-4-inch body looks best in high-waisted styles and these are the perfect height. They are comfortable and flattering and super stretchy." - Jamie Feldman, Associate Style Editor

To buy:BDG Twig Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans, $59
6
Best for: Curvy
J.Crew
"I love the high rise on these babies -- it's perfect for my curvy frame. The slight stretch also works wonders on days when you just want to feel comfy. But don't worry. Just because they give a little doesn't mean they'll completely lose their shape after a couple wears." - Lexi Tollefsen, HuffPost Lifestyle FellowTo buy: J.Crew Point Sur hightower skinny jeans, $198.
7
Best for: Tall + Curvy Thighs + Wide Hips
Zara
"Zara's TRF Basic Jeans are my go-to. I have thick thighs, wide hips and a big butt so I often have a problem finding jeans that don't gap, don't cut off my circulation, and don't over-emphasize my already pronounced features. These are A+ in the butt/hip department because they have enough stretch to keep everything in place without being constricting. They also wash like a dream so at $30, you really can't beat 'em." - Jenna Amatulli, Associate Crime & Weird News EditorTo buy: Zara TRF Basic jeans, $30.
8
Best for: Tall + Thin
Net-A-Porter
"Saving my money to purchase these black skinnies was one of my best investments yet. I'm tall and thin, but they hug me in all the right places and help to create the illusion of killer curves. Watch out, Kate Moss!" - Dana Oliver, Executive Fashion & Beauty Editor
To buy: J Brand 811 Photo Ready Mid-Rise Skinny jeans, $185.
9
Best for: Short + Hips
Gap
"I love these because they have some stretch and are high-waisted. So they definitely provide the coverage I want over my ample hips without being too, too tight." - Chanel Parks, Associate Style Editor

To buy: 1969 Resolution True Skinny High-Rise jeans, $70.
