Jean Guide: Flatter Your Figure

Pin It Now!

Whether you’re long and lean or full of curves women everywhere struggle to find the right pair of jeans. I'm hoping that from these styles below you'll be able to find a pair that suits your style, shape, and budget.

Body Type: Full Hips and Thighs
Frustration: “I have big legs, healthy thighs, and a curvy backside so it’s hard to find a pair of jeans that I can pull over everything and still have them fit well at the waist.”
Trouser Jean
Solution 1) Flares

The best style for those with a full pear shaped figure is a flare. These are designed to accommodate curves and the wide leg at the bottom balances you out. Try to find styles that begin flaring out below the knee and have a straight look from tummy to thighs.

Solution 2) Dark-Wash, Close to the Floor Flares

A dark wash is flattering because it hides any bulges and bumps. To flatter curvy hips, choose a style that is ultra-simple, and doesn't attract unwanted attention to them. The extra length adds height, too making you look longer and leaner.

Body Type: Hourglass
Frustration: “I have a waist and I find that most jeans cut me at the tummy in the wrong place, making my torso look shorter and stubbier.”
Silver Jeans
Solution 1) High-Waisted and Cropped Jeans

Choose styles that accentuates your hourglass’ curves even further. Jeans that hit right at the ankle are perfect!
