A number of self-confident readers, unafraid to turn their backs on ridiculous designer jeans with 34-inch-long inseams, have written to share sources for shorter pairs.
Wisdom from Jane: "Try Victoria’s Secret jeans….a cut to fit anybody and multiple lengths on all sizes…and only about $60."
Ariana, who is 5'2", wrote to say, "Lands' End has always hemmed jeans to your desired inseam length free. For $39 you can order women's boot cut jeans, and have them hemmed as short as you like."
And Lisa, owner of Not Your Daughters Jeans, said, "My company caters to the forgotten woman, the baby boomer, with the Tummy Tuck Jean, which has an inseam of 32 inches. It has a crisscross panel constructed on the inside that does not stretch along with the rest of the jean, therefore creating a 'tuck' when the jean is zipped up."
