Shopping for jeans by inseam

I had the idea for High Street Fit Finder when I was getting dressed one morning and put my foot through the knee of my favourite pair of jeans.  I had worn them so much that I had worn them out.  I was annoyed to say the least.  The thought of having to find a pair that not only fit me (I’m 5ft 2”) but fit my tight budget and particular style criteria as well stressed me out no end for I knew the search would take hours, if not days.

So I went online and started looking for websites that would help me find jeans by leg length to at least narrow the search down.  But could I find anywhere that refined by inseam?  In short, no!  “Ridiculous” I thought and the idea for a shopping comparison site that searched for clothing items by the user’s measurements was born.

I then spent the next five months researching jeans, the shops that sold them and their sizing guides and I am now happy to share the information I compiled with you all. Without further ado, please find below a table that lists the majority of retailers on the UK High Street which sell women’s jeans and the leg lengths they stock *.
