Although many manufacturers offer jeans with a short inseam, the best petite jeans are scaled especially for petite women. That means rear pockets that are appropriately sized and placed, knee breaks in the right place for boot cuts, waist rise scaled for a shorter torso, appropriate placement of seams, and smaller decorative elements. So look beyond short in-seams when shopping for the best petite jeans for you!.
