The body positive movement is growing rapidly, and I’m so happy to see expanded sizes and better fitting jeans all across the board in the apparel industry! Even if you’re a petite size, I’m sure you feel like you’ve been put through the jeans shopping ringer more than once. I get it, shopping for jeans can be a nightmare, and it’s been awesome over the years to see so many brands working on improving that fit, because we all know not everyone is shaped like a runway model. It’s not always about size, but also fit, as people within all size ranges have varying shapes. Good jeans can also be fairly pricey, so if you’re planning on hitting up Amazon Prime Day in an attempt to cure your denim woes, read on! Democracy is a great affordable brand that understands the demand for better fitting jeans in all sizes, and you can find them right on Amazon.
Democracy offers jeans from sizes 0-24, ranging from jeggings to bootcut to straight, flare, crop and more. Perhaps their biggest claim to fame is their “Ab”solution line, founded on the idea of “curve equality” and made to seriously flatter. These jeans fuse comfort and functionality, with stretch denim, slimming panels, a hidden elastic waistband (bye bye waist gaps), mesh panels for tummy control, a signature curved back yoke and pockets placed in a way that creates a “booty lift” effect. Best of all, most of these styles are priced under $80, starting around $35, with the colored jeans around the $100 range.
If you’re not a huge fan of elastic waistbands or all those bells and whistles, Democracy offers plenty of other great jeans designed in the traditional way, in the same fits we all love. I have not tried these jeans myself, but they each have several hundred to a few thousand impressively positive reviews, so I’m sure you can’t go wrong! If you’re still wary (which is totally understandable), Amazon Prime offers a “try before you buy” service which allows you to choose up to eight garments to try for seven days, with free return shipping.

“Founded on the principle of ‘Curve Equality,’ which acknowledges that all shapes are different, but created equal, we designed a jean that enhances a woman’s shape by fusing together style, comfort and technology. Democracy’s signature “Ab”solution jean uses innovative construction that incorporates smooth, super-stretch denim, slimming panels to mold and hold, a hidden inner elastic waistband for a no gap waist, mesh panels for tummy control, signature curved back yoke and strategically placed pockets which give her a ‘booty lift’.”
Here are some of my favorites from the Democracy “Ab”solution collection (I am a sucker for contrast washes, destruction, and of course, colors):
