Mid Rise Denim Jeans

Women's Mid Rise Jeans

Yes, we specialize in the high rise jeans. We’re experts on engineering the perfect fit, and high-waisted jeans are a favorite for all of US: sizes 00 to 40. That doesn’t mean we don’t like variety! We love classic mid-rise jeans. Our superfans do, too. Our all-time best-selling jeans are offered in both high and mid rise silhouettes. Have you tried the Seine Skinny Jeans yet? They’re five-star rated and raved about by the press and customers alike. The Seine High Rise Skinny Jeans are a popular pick and the Seine Mid Rise Skinny Jeans are every single reason why the mid rise jeans are so beloved. Let US explain…

What are mid rise jeans?

Mid-rise jeans come in many different silhouettes, from mid-rise cropped jeans to mid-rise classic bootcut jeans to mid-rise straight leg jeans, to mid-rise wide leg jeans to baggy boyfriend jeans. Even jeggings! Our mid-rise styles are classic skinny jeans—a body-hugging slim fit, fitted-leg style with our signature invisible stretch. A mid-rise is typically 5-10”. Ours is 8”. Mid-rise jeans should sit between your hips and your belly button, just below the natural waist. They provide more coverage than low-rise jeans but not as much as high-rise jeans.

Why choose mid rise jeans from US?

Universal Standard’s best-selling mid-rise jeans are the Seine Mid Rise Skinny Jeans. They’re cut in a medium-coverage, fitted-leg silhouette that has lots of stretch, and they’re offered in 4 classic washes (for now—we’re always adding more) from a dark to light wash. You can even choose a petite inseam or a style with an elevated ankle-zip detail. They’re crafted from super soft premium denim that will last for years with the proper care. Oh, and they can be machine-washed. It’s probably obvious why these are rated so highly, but you can always read the reviews for more information.

What’s the difference between mid rise and low rise jeans?

Low rise jeans have very minimal coverage. They’re not as comfortable as mid or high-rise jeans and make tucking in your favorite tees way more challenging. Low rise jeans sit at (or even below) the hips with a  7-8” rise. Universal Standard doesn’t currently offer any low-rise denim styles but reach out to US if you’re looking for a pair and hope to see some in the future.

What are the benefits of wearing mid rise jeans?

Mid-rise jeans are classic! They’ve been a front runner for everyone’s favorite style of jeans since denim’s early days. The mid-rise has made it through every single trend over every single decade—think flare jeans, distressed jeans, ankle skinny jeans, mom jeans, relaxed fit jeans, and classic straight jeans. They’ve been around forever, and everyone keeps choosing them for that iconic denim look. They look great with every style of top, from everyday white tees to hoodies. They even look great with blazers when you don’t feel like wearing trousers.
