The first thing you need to do to select well-fitting jeans is to know your body type. Categorize your body into the slim body type, athletic body type, curvy body types, and full-figured body type. You would also have to pay attention to your height; whether you are tall, medium or short. Not only that, but you also need to determine your body shape. Take a measurement tape and measure these three distances carefully:
• Around you bust line
• Around the slimmest part of your waist.
• Around your hip bones.
Depending on which measurement is the highest, your body would be cone-shaped (bustline largest, tapering from bust to hips), pear-shaped (hipline widest, bustline smallest), in shape of an hourglass (bustline and hipline same, slimmest in the middle), or a ruler-shaped body.
The most fashionable style of jeans which you can select to show off your perfect figure. If you have a tall slender body, skinny jeans would show off your long legs. But no matter what your body shape- slim, wide, heavy, tall or petite- you can always select skinny some jeans which are meant for you. Pear-shaped women should try dark jeans that do not taper to the ankle tightly otherwise their hips would look wider. They should select straight leg jeans instead. Cone-shaped women should not wear pointy-toed shoes with their skinny jeans as it would highlight the tapering even more. If you have a short height do not bunch the jeans at the bottom as it will shorten the height. Women with short height can also wear skinny jeans with heels to give the illusion of height and slender legs. The best way to wear skinny jeans is to couple them with high-heeled boots.
These jeans are worn on the hipline instead of the waist and are suitable for those who have a slim body (shown in the title picture). Women with ‘love handles’ or wide/ heavy hips are not advised to wear low rise jeans. Also, women with short height should not wear these jeans as they make the legs look shorter. These jeans are for the ladies who have those flat abs or those who have a curvy body and they want to highlight it. If you are wearing low rise jeans be careful when you are bending forward as it can expose your buttock area. Try to wear slightly longer tee-shirts to overcome this. Cone-shaped women should select to wear low rise jeans. Also, low rise jeans are a great way to show off the tattoo on your lower tummy or back.
Best Jeans for V-Shaped Bodies
Go with a mid-rise or classic waist if you want to rock your jeans! Low-rise jeans can cause the “muffin top” effect, whereas the high-rise style may draw a bit too much attention to your large midriff. Finding jeans that fit right at the waist but not too unshapely on the hip and thigh area can also be challenging for this body type. To emphasize your slim hips and thighs while concealing the love handles, opt for tummy-control jeans with straight or slim legs. Plus, accessorize your wardrobe with a couple of pairs of tapered boyfriend jeans. These relaxed-fit jeans are nice-and-easy on the waist and hips but not too baggy in appearance overall. Any jeans that give you the leggy look and shift the focus away from the tummy are your best friends.
Best Jeans for Pear and Hourglass Figures
Curviness is a lovely aspect of femininity. A lot of women with other body shapes are secretly jealous of you. However, that doesn’t mean your life is that much easier than theirs when it comes to finding perfect jeans. Curviness does come with a curse. Some jeans that have the correct waist measurement may turn out to be too small for your hips, while those that fit the hips quite nicely tend to have a huge gap at the waist, ride way down when you’re seated and reveal a little more than you want to show. Fortunately, though, many designers have been creating special lines of jeans with the pear and hourglass figures in mind. Curvy jeans are what they’re called. In addition to having a larger waist-hip ratio than those of regular jeans, they also better contour to your natural curves! Also, try to avoid low-rise jeans with all your might; large-hipped women do need extra coverage down there. Tapered slim jeans may be a flattering option for hourglass-shaped gals with slender legs. For the pear body type with thunder thighs, however, it’s better to stick to styles that create a long, streamlined look, such as bootcut and trouser jeans.
Best Jeans for Round Figures
Some say overweight women shouldn’t wear jeans at all. That is downright untrue. There are certain styles of jeans that can look amazing on round figures. Classic-rise trousers and relaxed-fit jeans with straight legs are some favorite choices. They make your legs appear slimmer while not accentuating your waist and hips too much. Wide-leg jeans, although continuously going in and out of trends, should also be wardrobe essentials for full-figured women. Fitted at the hips, they won’t add undesirable bulk to your behind as baggy jeans do. The billowing leg openings also provide perfect coverage to some thigh flab you might want to hide. Avoid low-rise and super tapered jeans; they will only draw bad attention!
Best Jeans for the Stick Body Type
Stick-thin women can rock pretty much any style of jeans. It’s the reason why most jean models have this body type! There are a few styles, though, that tend to be more flattering on your not-so-curvy shape than the others. Low-rise skinny jeans, of course, are many slender women’s number one choice. They add visual curves to your behind and hips while accentuating your slim legs. If you want to give some dimension to your straight silhouette, go with bootcut or flare-leg jeans. For those of you who are ultra-thin, don’t wear loose-fit or baggy boyfriend jeans. They don’t make you look fuller at all but emphasize your thinness in an unflattering way. Some people might want to offer you a cheeseburger or direct you to the nearest soup kitchen if they saw you in those oversized jeans!
