Are you getting full chaps or half chaps? Yes, you wear them with jeans...I did a search on-line to see best way to get the right size...Full chaps is by hip and waist measurement (i think), half chaps by calf measurement...Just type in womens chaps sizing....see what that gets.

It's the little things that drive me wild...

Yes you can wear jeans under them and if you are doing rodeos and just trail riding in them you might consider a half chap (for showing you get your chaps long so they fully cover your boot and hang correctly with the stirrup, you wont want them dragging on the ground for rodeos and trails). I would go to a local tack shop if you can just to try some on so you can better understand how they are sized (different companies tend to run differently but it will give you a starting number) I have attached a link that might help also with sizing.
