The 5 Brands With the Best Plus-Size Denim Shorts

Finding the perfect pair of denim shorts—ones that fit well and are flattering, comfortable, and affordable—is not always the easiest shopping task. And the search becomes even more difficult when looking for cutoffs above size 10 because the options are, well, just not as extensive. But we decided to take on the challenge, scouring the internet for the top five brands that currently offer a wide range of wallet-friendly, high-quality, and fashion-forward plus-size denim shorts.

Our findings? Brands such as ASOS, Good American, Levi's, and Lucky Brand have a great selection of top-rated jean shorts that checked off all of our search criteria in terms of fit, quality, and price. Of course, we also turned to customer reviews when narrowing down the top five brands, with the majority of the styles featured below raking in rave feedback from shoppers who have long struggled to find plus-size denim shorts that worked for their bodies. Read on to see and shop our selection below.

ASOS Curve

The ASOS Curve collection has an extensive range of on-trend denim shorts that are made of quality material (100% cotton), hug and flatter your curves, and most importantly, are very, very affordable. Every style we rounded up below rings in under $50, but they certainly look like they would cost double that much. Intrigued yet? Scroll down to shop our three favorite plus-size denim shorts from ASOS.

Good American

Khloé Kardashian's Good American range was created because of a gaping hole in the denim industry. Per the website, Khloé's own struggle to find jeans that fit her body type prompted her to make her own line of denim that's "sexy and flattering, and made to fit you—not the other way round." While the Good American styles are the priciest ones featured in this roundup, based on extensive customer reviews, they're well worth the splurge. One shopper even called the High Waist Denim Boyfriend Shorts ($155) the "perfect shorts."

Slink Jeans

Slink Jeans is a leader in the body-positive revolution that's been slowly taking the fashion world by storm, particularly within the denim industry. The brand offers an extensive range of jean styles—skinnies, baggy, cropped, and shorts, to name a few—that have been designed with its self-titled "curve-hugging technology." It doesn't get much better than that.


Levi's is a classic when it comes to denim, so we were thoroughly excited when we found the brand offers a great selection of plus-size jean shorts that have been designed for shape and comfort, thanks in part to the use of "stretch denim with the perfect amount of give." The styles featured below are well crafted, durable, and designed for every occasion—and all are available up to size 24.

Available in sizes 16 to 24.

Lucky Brand

Lucky Brand is another denim name that's been around for quite some time, so when searching for the best plus-size shorts, we wanted to see what it had to offer. And we must say, LB also has a great selection of versatile, on-trend styles available. These are the jean shorts you can wear year after year because they're truly timeless.
