But in all honesty, Shein has had quite the reputation of sending orders to you that aren’t exactly your perfect fit, despite you ordering the right size. So, before we go hunting for the perfect jeans for you, let’s dive into some tips to use while you’re looking for jeans on Shein.

Best Shein Jeans
First rule of Shein jeans is that it is not one size fits all. WHat can look great one one person can be a terrible fit on another. Even if the waist size is the same, you have to take height in consideration.
In the first two photos, you’ll find that these jeans are the perfect boy-friend fit for her, but the last one not so much. This is actually a great find, since these jeans are 85% cotton. They’re comfortable and will look great with anything, as long as you strut with confidence.
These jeans look especially great on tall women. The high waist and the boot cut on opposite ends really complement each other. These jeans are great for a trip to the Disneyland or an aimless night out. You’d be happy to know that these jeans also have slight spandex in them — yes, your tush is going to look great!
First of all, how great do these jeans look with a pink blazer? You can totally pull off colour blocking with these jeans and pair them with classic colours or totally shocking ones. In these jeans, you’ll find that the edges are untapered. The unhemmed look gives a rustic, carefree look and the flared cut on jeans is always cute!
Flared pants for short women are so hard to find! But not this one. The smaller sizes of these jeans are perfect for women with shorter legs. One of my favourite things about these jeans is the lace-up on the waist. They look so great tightly wound up against the hip.
You can tighten it as per your comfort and choose if you want a tight or a loose fit. But believe me, with jeans like this, if your booty isn’t showing, it’s not worth it. Bonus: They have this in 3 other colours.
Skinny jeans with stretch are hard to resist! Jeans that hug your skin around your tush, your things and your calves perfectly without causing bulges in weird places is the best kind of jeans. Thanks to its insane stretchiness, you can afford to gain that Thanksgiving weight and still look dashing. And to show you just how stretchy it is:
There is one thing though, I render pockets in skinny jeans useless. Anything you put in them just looks odd. But anyway — go pockets
You should know that these jeans rise up really high, even above your navel.
One thing I found about these jeans is that they’re baggy! In fact, this might be one of the only exceptions to the general Shein rule of sizing up because they run a bit small. These pants require you to size them down. A lot of people had similar reviews about it. They found the wait to be a bit too wide for their regular size.
These jeans have absolutely no stretch, so make sure you’re not sizing down too much. These are the kind of jeans I’d ask you to be careful about, despite how fun and quirky they look.
These jeans are available in black and blue. They have a washed finish to them, meaning they will go extremely well in your cool and casual wardrobe. The straight edge finish looks killer any time of the day. The end right above your ankles and start right at your waist. Ideally.
Those not bestowed with good height, unfortunately, may have to refrain from buying these unless you don’t mind a few gathers by the ankles.
These jeans are simply lovely. One has to have these jeans! These are the kind of jeans that will look good on anyone, no matter the body type — lean or curvy, tall or short. If one is too short, the jeans would simply flare out of the ankles. If one is tall enough it will look fabulous on you anyway.
They rise just at the cusp of the waist and the hip, showing off your accentuated curves. These jeans are non-stretch so I’d suggest you check the size guide before adding it to your forever must-haves list!
Tips to buy the perfect pair of jeans on Shein:
- Photos with Models
As a rule, I never buy jeans, or any clothing on Shein for that matter, unless there is a model in the photo posing in the jeans. First, it gives me an idea of how the fit is going to look around the body. Second, it gives me a comparison point and helps me size up or size down according to assumptions. In fact, just above the product description and sizing chart, you’ll find the details about the models height and figure starts. With this information, you can do the math.
- Checking Sizing Chart
For a more accurate approach, make sure to check the sizing chart on each and every pair of jeans. The sizing chart will list down the waist measurements, along with the length of the jeans and the circumference of the hip size. These can be cross referenced with the models stats that I mentioned above and you can make a fair deduction about which jeans will fit you.
- Check the reviews
Shein’s inconsistency demands that you only buy products that have reviews on them. You can take a risk, of course, but I would strongly suggest otherwise. If someone has had an experience that caused their jeans to tear when they sat on the floor, you need to see it. Better her than you sitting on the floor and finding out for yourself.
- Quality of Fabric
Do not have the highest expectations from Shein jeans, at least in terms of quality. Remember the Shein rule — You get what you pay for. For $20 jeans, I’m not going to let you build the expectations of something you’ll get from Levi’s of American Eagle. They’re not going to last you that long.
- While trying new designs
It is possible that you might be swayed to buy the countless styles there on Shein. You must also consider that not all styles may suit your body type. It is not my palace to say but the low prices on Shein have that effect on the mind.
Some generic tips:
- Get Shipping Insurance
When you’re planning to order multiple clothes, especially different styles of jeans you’ve never tried before, it is best to add a shipping insurance worth $2.99 during check out to your cart. This allows you to return all or a few products for free without any questions. It is better to spend $3 now than waste $7 on shipping your jeans back later.
- Promo Codes!
Yes we know Shein is already cheap, but no harm in making sure your crt total value is even lower right? The best way to do that is by adding promo codes you’ll either find on the SHein site itself, or by a quick google search with the same words. Shein often has significant discounts running all the time on their site. If you subscribe to their newsletter, I’m pretty sure you’ll get more insights too.
- Never buy from NEW -IN
I personally never opt for “New-In” because looking at reviews and checking how it fits others really matters to me. There might be issues with the seams, quality, look, and durability. If at all these are concerns for the particular pair you’re thinking of purchasing, you’re better off not buying them. Even though they are cheap, they’re not worth buying if you’re not gonna be able to wear them beyond one Instagram picture.
You are susceptible to a bad experience on Shein if you don’t shop smartly. Simply looking at product descriptions and the product photos can be very deceiving.
Now that you know all this, let’s find some cool new fits, shall we?
