How To Find The Perfect Jeans For Your Body Type.
We are all built differently and that’s what makes us interesting. Jeans also are “built” differently; they come in all sorts of different cuts, rises and lengths. There are so many options; it can leave your head spinning. If you want to find the perfect jeans for your body type, here are some guidelines:
The Perfect Jeans for Pear Body Types
You have a lean upper body with a small waist, large hips, thick thighs and sometimes short legs. Think Beyonce and J. Lo. If you want to find the perfect jeans, look for the following features:
High Rise– They make the legs look longer and accentuate the waistline and your small waist tends be a very flattering part of your body.
Smaller Fitting Waist– Most likely you have to buy a bigger size to fit your hips and thighs then alter your jeans so that they will fit your small waist. You can try a pair that’s cut smaller around the waist, such as Levi’s Curve ID Bold Curve.
Wear Boots– During the fall and winter months, you can use knee high or over-the-knee boots. They’ll help make your legs look longer, especially if the jeans have a high rise.
Bootcut and Wide Flares– These cuts help balance the proportion between your hips and legs, but unfortunately these cuts come in and out of style.
The Perfect Jeans for Hourglass Types
You have the ideal feminine body, a small waist and your hips and chest are in perfect proportion. Women with hourglass shapes benefit from clothes that emphasize their shape. Think Kim Kardashian and Sofia Vergara. If you want to find the perfect jeans, look for these features:
Skinny Jeans– This is a great option for you because your body is very well proportioned.
High Rise– This is another great option for you because it’ll accentuate your waistline where it’s the smallest. It’ll also make your legs look longer.
Flares– If you want to wear this cut, I recommend using a pair of skinny jeans with a slight flare that starts below the knees. Flares that start above the knee will make you look heavier on the bottom.
The Perfect Jeans for Apple Body Types
You tend to be round around the waist and have slim legs and arms. The key is to pair your jeans with a loose fitting blouse. Think Catherina Zeta Jones and Jennifer Hudson. If you want to find the perfect jeans, look for these features:
Skinny Jeans– They are a great option for you because your legs are thin.
Low Rise– I recommend a low rise jeans paired with a blousy top. This will conceal your “problem’ area and emphasize your beautiful legs.
The Perfect Jeans for Banana Body Types
You have a boyish figure with a straighter hip area and usually long legs. Think Anne Hathaway and Cameron Diaz. If you want to find the perfect jeans, look for these features:
Skinny Jeans– They are a great option for you because of your long, thin legs . If you are tall, you can wear cropped jeans or cuff them to show off your shoes.
Mid-Rise– A mid rise works well on you because it keeps your upper and lower body balanced.
Boyfriend Jeans– They look great on you because they make your hips look a little wider, creating the illusion of an hourglass shape.
The Perfect Jeans for Strawberry Body Types
You have wide shoulder, straight hips and thin legs. Think Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore. If you want to find the perfect jeans, look for these features:
Skinny Jeans– They are a great option for you because your legs and hips are slim. Pair your jeans with a blazer for an overall balanced look.
Boyfriend Jeans- They are a good option for you because they balance your hips and shoulders.
Low Rise– I recommend a low or mid-rise because it’ll make your torso look longer and slimmer.
