Perfect Jeans to Fit Any Girl's Silhouette

Ying Hsu

As well as the advice of a sales associate, here are some tips to take into the fitting room:

Petite Figure

  • A high-cut style lengthens the torso
  • Cuffs are alright, but bewared it can look like junior wear

Plus Sizes

  • High-waist style prevents you from flashing the unwanted butt cleavage
  • Dark denim works to your advantage – it’s slimming, just like black

Wide Hips

  • Boot-cut styles can transform your voluptuous curves into a fine proportioned figure
  • Thigh-hugging jeans can make your hips look wider

Straight Hips

  • Form fitting jeans that highlight you do have hips
  • Large, detailed pockets in the front, where it is placed slightly below the waist area, adding fullness and definition to the hip region

Big Derriere

  • Boot-cut styles balance out your proportions
  • Back pockets slim down a backside when they’re cut on and angle and positioned lower down
  • The absence of back pockets can make your bum look larger

Flat Bottom

  • Look for form-fitting jeans, accentuating the curve of your bum
  • Not only do the rounded, stitched pockets become a style line, but this also becomes a focal area, adding softness and volume to the bottom area

One Final Jean Tip

Never purchase jeans only for the label. Some girls have invested hundreds of dollars in fashionable brand names, even if the style is totally wrong for them. Look for a jean cut that flatters your figure, high-quality denim and a comfortable fit. Good jeans have all that – even if they cost only $90. Who cares if no one has heard of the label?
