On a standard pair of jeans this will typically be around 12 inches although on low rise jeans this can be reduced to around 4 to 8 inches. This style of jeans can also be known as low cut jeans, hipsters and low riders.
Low rise jeans first became popular in the 1960’s and in recent years the style has made a comeback into popular fashion. One of the trends of recent years has been to have a bare midriff showing between trousers and top and jeans with a low rise are perfect for this. Typically the waist of low cut jeans sits around 3 inches below the belly button and this makes them a good style if you favor the bare midriff look. However they can also be worn with longer tops and still provide a fashionable look.
