Find jeans you love in YOUR size!

If we had it our way, it would just be called “sizing” and everyone would have one. But rest assured, when you come into one of our stores for “your size”—we’ve 100% got you.


The proof? Our models! The majority of which were real people with real frustrations about jeans just like the rest of us mere mortals. Here’s what we heard on set:



“…my body is very long, but (American Eagle’s) a nice job of framing everything from waist to ankle. I was just really astounded b/c I had never delved deeper into American Eagle to know that you guys catered to extended sizes.”



“You shouldn’t feel like you’re forced to wear like, stretchy things all the time to actually be comfortable.”



“Sometimes it can be very frustrating to shop for jeans…I put my legs into two jeans and start jumping for a few minutes until I’m sweaty, trying to fit…that feeling is very frustrating…with American Eagle I already know exactly the size and exactly what’s going to fit.



“I barely find long enough ones my size, but American Eagle has been coming through.”



“…as a “plus-size” woman, jean shopping can be pretty terrible…. when you do find that pair that really look good, you almost like, dance in the fitting room. That feeling…it’s phenomenal…”



“You can’t feel good if you’re wearing pants that make you feel uncomfortable, because then that’s all that you’re thinking about.”



“It’s easy to find jeans that work, but it’s not easy to find the PERFECT jeans, and I want the perfect jeans. I don’t want my jeans to feel forced…. I want them to feel like they’re a part of me…”


So say goodbye to words like “plus”, goodbye “extended”, goodbye “big & tall”—we don’t speak that language. Our jeans are inclusively sized to fit every single unique body. Below is a breakdown of our sizes:

For him:

Waist sizes 26-44”
Lengths from 28-36”

For her:

Short, Regular & Long in sizes 00-20
Extra Short in 00-14
Extra Long in sizes 0-14





A few ways we’ve been working on sustainability.

Nowadays when it comes to talking about the environment, it can be as intimidating as bringing up religion or politics at Thanksgiving dinner.

But we all have to start somewhere, and we’d like to begin by sharing a few things we’ve been doing to minimize our impact on the environment and a few goals for the future:


Any paper wrapping materials, packaging or bags you haul your AE goodies will be made entirely from recycled paper. Not only that, our plastic bags will use 75% recycled materials.

We are moving to only using viscose made from raw materials from non-endangered forests. Additionally, will only be using 100% more sustainable cotton and 50% recycled polyester.





We are working with our denim laundries to decrease water usage by 30% less water for every pair of jeans we make and recycle 50% of the water that is used.





We are reviewing our packaging to decrease the amount of plastic and other materials being used in shipping.






As of this year, we’ve reduced energy consumption in our stores by 30% by switching to LED lights and a more efficient heating/cooling system! Naturally, the American Eagle team is hard at work thinking up ways we can cut back on energy consumption in our offices, factories, and production facilities, too.




We know we’ve still got a long ways to go but we just wanted to let you guys know that we are committed, ready and excited to make this one of our top priorities of 2018. Like we said, this is only the beginning.






level of stretch graphic

We know that shopping online can feel like a bit of a gamble – especially when it comes to women’s jeans and pants. So to make things easier, we’re breaking it down with a cheat sheet to help you find JUST the pair you’re looking for. Check out the guide below for info on all our stretch levels – from least to most stretchy – plus quotes from real girls we asked to try them.



The classic. No stretch whatsoever—lightweight and soft with a vintage look and feel.

Feels like someone’s already broken in my favorite vintage jeans.”


Super Stretch

Moderately stretchy, but made to feel like real jeans.

“…extremely soft and flexible but still feels like denim”


“These have a true denim feel.”

“…seemed the most like jeans, rather than leggings”


Ne(x)t Level

Our softest, never-loses-its-shape denim. Won’t bag out. Ever.

“Contoured to my curves”

“They kept their shape all night long”

“…fit me like a glove without being constricting. Absolutely in love with these jeans”



Booty-lifting, body-hugging, limitless four-way stretch. THE stretchiest, most legging-like jeans we offer.


“I love that this jean feels durable and comfortable at the same time.”

“Amazingly soft…like wearing leggings”
