Shopping for jeans has always been a bit of a nightmare for me. Being 5'2" with a 27" inseam often meant that I had to hem every single pair. But then it seemed like the proportions were wrong. The thigh / knee area was always off and I hated that self-hemming my jeans meant that the hem didn't have the faded pattern (see Kelly's post here on original vs. regular hemming on jeans) that regular jeans had.
"To hell with hemming!"
Allison Izu, a denim brand specifically catering to petites (that is women 5'6" and under), not only offers a variety of sizes / inseams, they have also solved the problem of proportions. The waist-hip-knee-ankle ratio as well as other denim details are now proportioned for petite figures. See Allison Izu denim reviews from Extra Petite, Petite Little Girl, and Really Petite.
Now on to the fun part - win a pair of Allison Izu Premium Denim with the size and style of your choosing!
