The Best Jeans On Amazon, According to Enthusiastic Reviewers
by Taylor Borde
You get everything else, there, but did you know you can also get the best jeans at Amazon, too. Seriously, reviewers are wild about Amazon jeans, particularly these nine pairs.
Jeans shopping is the most dreaded of all shopping, mostly because it requires trying on countless pairs of ill-fitting denim, only to leave the store empty-handed once again. Trust me, I’ve been there. Enter: Amazon jeans. The e-commerce giant known for grocery shopping and speedy two-day shipping is making serious strides toward replacing our favorite denim retailers, and customers are here for it.
After scouring Amazon’s list of women’s best-selling jeans, we narrowed it down to denim with over 500 four- and five-star reviews. A handful have more than 1,000 rave reviews, something we just couldn’t ignore. And for as little as $20, you shouldn’t either.
Whether you’re looking for skinny or straight leg, office-appropriate or heavily distressed, dark wash or classic black, Amazon’s best jeans have you covered. Take a peek at the top nine pairs that literally have people posting pictures of their perfectly-lifted butts.
1. Signature by Levi Strauss & Co. Women’s Modern Skinny Jeans
These Levi Strauss skinny jeans are made with premium, super stretchy denim that moves with your body, hugging all your curves in just the right places, without bagging out throughout the day. The worst! Whether you’re petite or tall, size 4 or 20, you can choose between seven trendy washes to find your perfect-fitting pair, like these pleased Amazon jeans shoppers.
With more than 1,000 reviews and more than 85 percent voting four or five stars for these modern skinnies, they’re definitely worth trying, especially for $22.
Glowing Review: “These fit well, with the back coming up high enough so I’m not flashing my panties when I bend over. I don’t have a huge rear, but a lot of jeans just don’t give great coverage. These totally do. Lifespan and quality look to be great for the price. I’ve already bought a second pair and I plan to buy more.”

2. Signature by Levi Strauss & Co. Women’s Curvy Straight Jean
Another Amazon fan favorite, these straight-leg Levi jeans have been praised by all our pear-shaped ladies for their stretchy waistband that fits nicely over hips while slimming in mid-rise at the waist. Thanks to the relaxed fit and flattering cut, these jeans will be your casual Friday go-tos.
Eighty percent of the more than 600 reviews rate these Levi jeans with four stars or more. Sold!
Glowing Review: “Most comfortable jeans ever! Wow! Love the fit and how they feel. I typically do not order clothes online, but was glad I took a chance with these. I have a difficult time buying pants and jeans in the first place (even going to the store and trying them on is a challenge for a good fit). I typically have a smaller waist and larger hips so pants tend to gap at the waistline, and I normally have to buy a size up to fit the hips. With these I didn’t go up a size at all and they fit all over very nicely. Length of inseam and waist doesn’t gap. They are the perfect fit. Thank you Levi Strauss & Co. for figuring out how to make jeans fit for women with hips and still flatter their body type AND making them comfortable to wear!”

3. Hybrid & Co. Women’s Butt Lift Skinny Jeans
Hybrid and Co. is known for its unbelievable Butt Lift denim technology, according to enthusiastic reviewers. Even women with plenty of junk in the trunk have given these “yoga jeans” the stamp of approval with photo evidence to prove it. And for that price? Get a regular denim wash, a classic white for spring and summer, and a pair in a more fun color (there are 28 in total).
No, you’re not dreaming. These butt-lifting jeans have almost 1,000 reviews on Amazon and a solid four-star rating by over 70 percent of satisfied customers. No buts about it!
Glowing Review: “Love these. I’ve had them about three months. I’m a curvy girl: 5’2″, size 16. I did not expect these jeans to fit over my curves. But they did. I get so many compliments on them, and the more you wash and wear them, the more comfortable they get.”

4. Lee Women’s Relaxed Fit Straight-Leg Jeans
Lee has been a long-time frontrunner in comfortable denim, but the relaxed straight-leg jeans take the cake for more than 700 Amazon users. These jeans don’t claim to do anything fancy, but an overwhelming number of positive reviews say this soft denim fits in all the right places, sans unflattering bunching or loose fabric.
With 773 reviews, fans are all about these Lee jeans. That’s 487 people giving four stars or more.
Glowing Review: “It’s hard to find jeans that fit. I appreciate these because they are stretchy but also do not gap at the back waistline. It’s especially great that they come in Long, as I am 5’9″ and mostly legs! I just have to be careful not to tumble dry them all the way or they will shrink in length.”

5. Signature by Levi Strauss & Co. Women’s Totally Shaping Pull-On Skinny Jeans
Would you wear jeans with an elastic waistband? They may seem like pregnancy pants, but reviewers swear that these jeans with a built-in shaping panel are the tummy-smoothing solution they’ve been looking for. Amazon customers of all ages have admitted to buying and loving these stretchy skinny jeans without an ounce of regret. A smooth stomach without stepping foot in a gym? Might as well give them a try for $20.
Take it from the overwhelming 73 percent of reviewers that gave these jeans a five-star review. And a whopping 88 percent are four stars or above. Wow.
Glowing Review: “These are awesome! I was hesitant to order ‘grandma pull-on’ jeans, but since they are to pair with tunics, I figured, give it a shot. Pleasantly surprised at how well they fit and the expert engineering to cover some of our not so pleasant lumps & bumps. They have a thick (about 1.5 inch) waistband that sits about hip bones, so not waist high like mom jeans. IMO, I find them stylish. There is a mock zipper, so if your shirt/blouse rises up, people with think you have on regular jeans. The tummy control panel is lightweight, but I definitely can feel it doing its thing. I normally wear a size 4 and that’s what I ordered. I might have gotten away with a size 2, as these aren’t snug and have a little room in the waistband. So if you want a snugger fit, maybe order down. Also, I got a 4M, I’m 5’3″ and the leg hem hits me just below the ankle.”
6. Levi’s Women’s 711 Skinny Jean
These classic Levi’s 711 Skinny Jeans have Amazon jeans shoppers grabbing their credit cards left and right. Forget designer denim that’s upward of $100. These iconic skinnies are made with innovative stretch denim that flatters, holds, and lifts, topped off with the iconic leather Levi’s tag. Take your pick between 45 different washes to find your denim match made in heaven. That’s right, we said 45! What’s the catch?
No catch, just 400-plus happy customers.
Out of almost 600 reviews, these Levi’s ranked a stellar 4.2 out of five with 440 super satisfied customers giving four or more stars.
Glowing Review: “I was pretty hesitant about buying such expensive jeans. I normally won’t spend more then $25, but I was tired of my jeans not fitting right. These were worth every single penny. I followed the sizing chart measurements. I’m 5’5” 125 lbs and bought a size 28 with a 30 length. This pair was a soft jean with a worn-in feel, and they fit me so well! They weren’t too tight and definitely not too baggy.”

7. Vibrant Women’s Classic High Waist Denim Skinny Jeans
According to more 1,000 excited reviewers, these ultra high-waisted skinnies are the fashionable alternative to pajama jeans. Why wear stiff denim when you can walk around in comfy jeggings disguised as stylish dark-wash jeans? And apparently they make your butt look great, too.
More than 75 percent of Amazon reviewers rated these skinny jeans four stars and above. Let’s make this clear: that’s 883 people who love how they look in these curve-hugging jeggings.
Glowing Review: “I’m in love with these jeans. My bff told me to quit shopping at Express and find out where the strippers shop because your ass is too phat for this nonsense. My ass is real but most jeans are unrealistic. I bought these, I didn’t buy an ass but if I did, I would put it in these jeans. I’m buying the other colors. My regular size is 12 but I bought a 15 and I’m ready for a crop top and a club.”

8. Levi’s Women’s Mid Rise Skinny Jeans
Amazon fashion reviewers are naming these Levi’s “true skinny jeans” after struggling with far too many mislabeled pairs. As if jeans shopping wasn’t hard enough, they’ve got to label a straight-leg as a skinny, leading to ultimate disappointment. But not these jeans. With the right amount of stretch, comfortable mid-rise waistline, and a true tapered ankle, these pants are perfect for tucking into your fave spring booties or worn rolled up with your summer sandals.
Of the more than 1,500 reviews, 78 percent are four or five stars, so obviously these skinnies are doing something right.
Glowing Review: “I was looking for:
1. Skinny jeans that can truly be classified as ‘skinny’…there seem to be many jeans out there with the skinny label that should have been classified as slim or straight leg.
2. Jeans that would cover my round rump so that every time I bent over, my crack or undies didn’t show (ugh).
3. Jeans that, while able to satisfy the above #2, could also taper in at the waist so that I don’t have a big waist gap in the back.
4. Jeans that didn’t rise too high at the waist to avoid looking granny-like (though I do acknowledge that recent trend of the high-waisted jeans and shorts—just not a good look for me), or those that were so low-rise, causing my hip/flank meat to flop over the waistband like that of a sloppy teenager.
These jeans met all of the above requirements. The denim thickness is just right, too—not too heavy, but not so thin than they feel like you’re wearing cotton yoga pants. I’m 5’8″, with a 31.5-inch true inseam, and bought the size 8 (medium length), which falls perfectly at my ankles with no bunching or high-water action. They’re very comfortable, and super cute on my butt. The pockets are the right size and are strategically placed so that if you have a rounder backside, you don’t end up looking like you’ve hijacked a TV under your jeans…I’m serious, pocket placement is so important when it comes to both minimizing and maximizing the rump, people! I bought the nightstorm color, which is a darker navy-indigo with a touch of fading through the thighs (but not dramatically faded, which I liked). Very happy with this purchase.”

9. Not Your Daughter’s Jeans Women’s Marilyn Straight Leg Jeans
NYDJ: Not Your Daughter’s Jeans. Sometimes a name is just that—a clever name. Though hundreds of mothers have written their praises for these figure-flattering jeans, countless daughters and 20-somethings have gushed about the slimming lift tuck technology and endless selection of washes as well. This tech works to flatten the front and contour the back so you look and feel a whole size smaller. A whole size!
Sixty-six percent of the 1,833 reviews rated these jeans five stars. That means more than 1,200 took the time to rave about these NYDJ jeans, giving it the highest rating possible. An additional 19 percent gave them four stars. Though they are the priciest of the bunch, can you really argue with upwards of 1,500 positive reviews?
Glowing Review: “I have never paid this much for a pair of jeans. Instead, I have paid $30 to $50 for NUMEROUS pairs that don’t fit right. A constant battle for sure. No more!! These are awesome. I was concerned about the rise being too high. They are high but not overly so. Right to the waistline. Maybe just a tad below. Wish I had tried them a long time ago!! The tummy tuck feature is incredible. It works like you won’t believe without being tight. It’s hard to explain – they are tight but comfortable and look really good. Highly recommend you give them a try. I am 5′ 7 and the length is perfect. I ordered a size down as the NYDJ website suggested. Totally awesome. The war has been won!! Perfect fitting jeans.”
