I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of straight-leg jeans for months now. It’s a trend I’ve slowly adopted, although I’m not sure I’ll totally ditch my skinny jeans for good. Abercrombie has quickly become known for their jeans and overall quality when it comes to denim. I have not had the best luck with Abercrombie jeans in the past, but I’ve been inspired by so many of my friends to give them another try! I’m sharing a complete and honest Abercrombie jean review of their straight leg jeans to see if they’re worth all the hype.

What Makes a Good Pair of Jeans?
I know I’m not the only person searching for the perfect pair of jeans, so I wanted to write up a detailed review on all the Abercrombie jeans I’ve tried! I do plan to continue testing out more options at various price points, so check back to this review for more options in the future.
I’m looking for a pair of jeans that is light wash, flattering and comfortable to sit in. I spend a good chunk of my days at a desk, so having something that doesn’t feel constricting, while also still being flattering is a must for me! Plus, no one wants to see a huge gap in the back of your jeans when you sit.
I typically wear a size 6 or 28 in jeans. I am 5’5 for reference and have a naturally shorter torso. This affects where denim hits on me and how high or low rise something actually is on me. I purchased all of the below jeans in my normal size 28 regular.
Abercrombie Jean Details
I’m excited to give a wide variety of styles a try for this Abercrombie jean review. I am currently eight months postpartum. My body has gone through a lot of changes over the last year. As I’m re-learning how to dress a slightly more curvy body, I’m also being a little more adventurous with my style! It’s been so fun trying out different trends and seeing which ones feel right for building a wardrobe I love. If you’re looking to re-build your wardrobe from scratch, check out this guide!
ABERCROMBIE JEAN SIZING AND HOW THEY FIT
One of the reasons I’m excited to give Abercrombie & Fitch denim a try again is because of their wide range in sizing. They offer sizes 23-37. This is extremely size inclusive for a denim brand. They also offer their denim in short, regular, long and extra short lengths. In addition, they now offer all denim styles in their curve love fit as well. Abercrombie has 6 different styles of denim: 90’s straight, 90’s relaxed, ankle straight, dad jean, mom jean, and their classic skinny jean. Today I’m trying the 90’s style, ankle relaxed style and dad jeans. All of which are right on trend!
Abercrombie Curve Love Jeans vs Regular
Abercrombie introduced their Curve Love fit in denim a few years back, and it’s been a growing hit! Their curve love line of denim has an additional 2″ throughout the hip and thigh. Oftentimes, this is where women struggle to find the perfect fitting jeans. Speaking from experience, I know how frustrating it can be to find the perfect pair of jeans. The Curve Love fit is now available in all styles of Abercrombie’s denim.
Abercrombie Jean Review
Curve Love Low Rise 90’s Straight Jeans
They have a slight stretch to them, while still having a true denim feel. They have a bit of a looser fit throughout my hips and in the legs. I feel like I could have sized down one from my normal size, but that may be the curve love style. If you’re wanting a more fitted look, I would grab these in the non-curve love style. One thing to note is that I wish I had gotten a shorter size. I’m 5’5 for reference and feel like the shorter length would be more flattering. I love how the curve love fits my hip measurements nicely but I feel like I could have sized down.
SIT TEST: These pass the sit test with flying colors! I can actually sit comfortably in these without feeling like I’m restricted. There is a small gap in the back, but nothing that a shirt or bodysuit wouldn’t cover.
OVERALL THOUGHTS: These might just be my new favorite pair of Abercrombie jeans. I love how flattering and comfortable they are. They lay nicely when I sit and I don’t feel constricted. The legs are also very flattering and will be easy to style multiple ways!
Curve Love Ultra High Rise 90’s Straight Jeans
SIT TEST: These are very comfortable to sit in.
OVERALL THOUGHTS: These are not my style, but they are right on trend. The washed out look gives these an authentic vintage feel. If you’re wanting a true 90’s look, I would recommend these!
Curve Love Ultra High Rise Ankle Straight Jeans
After trying this pair, I’ve determined I don’t love the ultra-high rise with my short torso. An ultra-high rise is a really high waist on me. I also felt like these were riding up in the front and back. They also ran much smaller than the other size 28 jeans I have, so I would consider sizing up in these.
SIT TEST: These did not pass the sit test with flying colors. While I wouldn’t go as far to say that they are uncomfortable, they weren’t the most flattering. It felt as though I was rolling over the jeans as opposed to being tucked inside them. This would make me conscious about wearing a more fitted shirt if I was going to be sitting in these while wearing them out and about. These also fit tighter, so perhaps sizing up would make these more comfortable to sit in.
OVERALL THOUGHTS: I would rate these a 7 out of 10. They aren’t my absolute favorite but I didn’t want to shed them at first glance in the mirror.
Curve Love Slim Straight Ultra High Rise
SIT TEST: They do gap in the back when I sit. It’s not the most flattering when I sit, but they aren’t uncomfortable.
OVERALL THOUGHTS: The overall style of these are not what I was hoping for. These are pretty slim through the thigh then look bulky below the knee. For my body shape, this style is not the most flattering and I couldn’t see myself wearing these regularly.
Asymmetrical Curve Love Ultra High Rise 90’s Straight Jeans
Although, I do like that the legs are slightly looser, which is something that the slim straight jeans were lacking. Unfortunately though, these are very uncomfortable overall to sit or stand in. If you want to try them I would suggest sizing up.
SIT TEST: They did not pass the sit test in the least bit. They were very hard to sit in. However, this could be because overall I need one size up.
OVERALL THOUGHTS: These are a hard pass. They were hard to button and very uncomfortable. It was hard to tell if the issue was that I needed a larger size or if the jean was overall shifted to one side. If you’re wanting to give these a try, I would recommend sizing up one from your normal size.
Curve Love Ultra High Rise 90’s Straight Jeans
SIT TEST: These pass the sit test very well!
OVERALL THOUGHTS: These are not my favorite and don’t really seem to fit within my style or what I’m looking for. While they are comfortable to sit in, they ride up in the back and the shape of the leg is unflattering.
Best Abercrombie Fit and Style
My favorite pair of jeans in this Abercrombie jean review is the Curve Love 90’s straight low rise jeans in size 28 in the light wash. I’m tempted to also try them in the next size down since I had some extra room in the waist and hip. Unfortunately, the rest of the jeans that I tried on are going back. While I wouldn’t consider these a true low rise on my torso, if this is the new low rise jean, I might just have to get on board with this trend making a comeback.
I also came to the conclusion that the curve love style fits me much better and is more comfortable overall. The extra 2 inches allows the jeans to lay better and pass the sit test much easier without riding up if you know what I mean.
Overall, the fit of the ultra-high rise jeans were not my favorite. It may be because of my short torso, but this style was uncomfortable for me. I much prefer where the low rise jeans hit and find that when I sit, these are more flattering for me as well.
Do you have a favorite pair of Abercrombie jeans that you love?
