Judy Blue jeans are some of the most comfortable and flattering jeans on the market now and they're immensely popular.
Sizing can be a bit tricky because their denim has a mix of cotton and spandex - the spandex is part of the reason they're so comfortable because they move and stretch with your body. But it also means that most people can wear a smaller size than they're used to with 100% cotton denim.
Here's a sizing guide that I hope will help! I tend to break my sizing guide down into sections so that you can jump right to your section.
Judy Blue has two size runs: Regular and Plus. The number in parentheses is the waist measurement but remember they stretch a LOT and this measurement is UNSTRETCHED:
Regular: 0 (24), 1 (25), 3 (26), 5 (27), 7 (28), 9 (29), 11 (30), 13 (31), 15 (32)
Plus: 14W (35), 16W (36), 18W (38), 20W (40) 22W (42), 24W (44)
GENERAL FIT INFO: I know how intimidating it can be to buy jeans online but please trust me when I say you need to size DOWN in Judy Blues! They're that stretchy and comfy!
If you're used to wearing Misses' sizes 0-14 or 15: Take your highest even size and subtract one for your Judy Blue size. For example, if you usually buy a 10, get a 9 in Judy Blues! If you are between two sizes such as an 8-10, take the middle number which is still a size 9 in these! *If you're a curvy size 14, 15, or XL, see notes below.
If you're used to wearing Plus size 16-26: Go down one size from your usual size. For example, when I wore a size 18 in pants, I wore a 16W in Judy Blue. When I wore a size 16 in pants, I wore a 14W in JB. The only exception to that rule is stick with your usual size if that size is already very snug on you. So if you wear a size 18 in dress pants but they're snug and tight, go with an 18W in Judy Blues. *If you wear a size 15 or XL, see notes below.
*If you're used to wearing size 14, 15, or XL: If you're used to wearing size 14, 15, or XL AND you're curvy or have a more stocky build, you may be inbetween Judy Blue's Regular and Plus sizes. I recommend that most curvy customers in that size range start with size 15 - the highest size in Judy Blue's Regular size run. For example, I'm currently between a size 14-16 and wear an XL in most pants. Plus, I'm curvy and have heavy legs and Judy Blue size 15 fits me perfectly! If you wear a size 14 and your body shape is more straight without being curvy or having a stocky build, using the Regular fit guide above and sizing down to a 13 will work for you.
Here's a few photos that might also help:
I'm a curvy 14-16/XL wearing a size 15 in Judy Blue Non-Distressed Bootcut jeans below. I also have heavy legs and they fit perfectly and just as they're supposed to - form-fitting but soooooo comfy because of the spandex throughout and then opening up into a bootcut at the bottom. (And bootcut is not just for boots!!! I wear them with sneakers a lot because they balance out my hips and things!)
In this next photo taken on the same day, I'm wearing a size 15 in Judy Blue Tummy Control Espresso Flare Jeans and they again fit me perfectly!
