Talking Petite Denim With Our Petite Friends

Attention: ladies 5’3” and under—get ready because we now have jeans made just for you (!). To help celebrate the launch of our new petite jeans, we chatted with some members of Team Madewell about emoji feels, perfect pairs and what they’re going to do with all that money now that trips to the tailor are out of the picture.

Name the biggest challenge when looking for jeans that fit you.
“Knee placement. Ripped jeans don’t work for me because the holes are usually at my shins rather than my knees.” —Erica, 5’1”, denim design guru

“There are so many cool hem details that hit me at the wrong spot.” —Emily, 5’3” wholesale whiz

“I can never get a pair of cropped jeans. They end up being full length on me!” —Sarah, 5’3”, marketing maven

Describe your most ideal, superperfect pair of jeans.
“A mid to high waist, so I can tuck in everything from T-shirts to big sweaters.” —Kaitlin, 5’3”, creative project pro (who also happens to be pictured doing her thing above)

“I like a rigid pair that has a slim-straight leg shape.” —Erica

“A pair that can accommodate my short height, wider hips and smaller waist.” —Sarah

What emojis describe how you felt when you found out we were launching petite denim?
“💁💁 yes, please and 💸 there goes my paycheck.” —Kaitlin

“🔥🙋🔥” —Andi, 5’, accessories design expert

“💃& 🐫 (because baby got back)” —Sarah

What are you gonna do with all the cash you save from skipping the tailor?
“I’ll be spending that money on tacos and shoes.” —Andi

“Going to find more tops to go with my new jeans!” —Erica

“Easy, buy more jeans!” —Emily
