Premium designer jeans are popular for their fabric quality, fit, and attention to finishing details. Styles range from classic to trendier looks, with classic cuts and washes often the most popular across multiple demographics. Prices points usually hover around the $100 mark, with some designer labels more than $200 retail.  The extra cost comes from the specialty finishes, attention to fit, and higher quality fabrics.

Because women come in so many shapes and sizes, it's not unusual for customers to become extremely loyal to a brand or style that fits their particular body well.  The holy grail of shopping is the perfect pair of jeans!

Plus-Size Designer Jeans Shopping Resources

The major upscale department stores can be some of the best places to find designer jeans in size 14 to 24W.  The most upscale labels regularly available include James Jeans and hard-to-find European designers at Saks Fifth Avenue and labels such as Marina Rinaldi, Lafayette 148, CJ by Cookie Johnson, and Eileen Fisher at Neiman Marcus

Bloomingdale's and Lord & Taylor will often carry many of these, in addition to slightly more moderately priced labels such as Michael Kors, Vince Camuto, and DKNY.  Dillard's is especially reliable for Ralph Lauren and Eileen Fisher in addition to other labels such as Silver and Calvin Klein.  The deepest inventory of Silver Jeans including all their different cuts for both body types and sizes is available directly from their website.

Meanwhile, the extremely popular Not Your Daughter's Jeans (NYDJ) label which is found throughout most department store and boutique inventories is especially well represented at Nordstrom.  They also carry other labels such as Eileen Fisher, CJ by Cookie Johnson, Melissa McCarthy's Seven7, and Kut from the Kloth.

 Macy's carries more moderately priced labels with a trendier style vibe appealing to those with a youthful look. Look for Melissa McCarthy Seven7, Rachel Roy, Nanette Lepore, and Jessica Simpson, in addition to more classic labels such as Ralph Lauren and NYDJ.  Meanwhile, Bon Ton is the place to stop for labels such as Earl, Silver, Laura Ashley, and Gloria Vanderbilt.
