My jeans always gap in the back…help!

Then our curvy fit jeans are made for you. Not only does the higher waist put a stop to the back gap, but it’s also designed to flatter your curves. In fact, our curvy fit is made with our best stretch denim that we also use in our jeggings, so you know they are as comfortable as they are forgiving. As far as the size…if you normally wear a size 9/10 jean for your hips, but the waist is too big, you should give the 7/8 in the curvy a try (same rules apply if you’re looking for a plus curvy size).

I love my maurices jeans…but will you offer any higher rise options?

There will actually be three new rise options this Fall, and most of our jean styles, as well as jeggings, will have the new Mid Rise waist that sits below the waist. In addition to Mid Rise, we’ll also have a few jegging styles that will have our High Rise waist (sits at the waist). Last, but not least…we’ve also developed a higher Mid Rise across all plus denim styles.
