Like finding the right bikini, finding the right pair of jeans is notoriously difficult. They certainly aren’t one size fits all! The good news is that these days we don’t have to worry about squeezing our pear-shaped bodies into a teeny hipster jean. Brands have stepped up their game and there are countless styles, cuts, lengths and washes to suit every. single. shape. Yes, even yours! This means no gaping, no saggy knees, no muffin top. There really is no excuses – you just need to know where to shop.
I caught up with fashion buyers and denim experts from my favourite brands to create this mini guide on how to choose perfect-match denim for your body shape.
You’re womanly and curvy, and your top half is totally balanced with your bottom half. You have a bust and a bum and look a little bit like Beyonce. Lucky you! Look for:
- Mid or high rise to sit on the narrowest part of your waist
- Skinny, slim or straight leg
- Stretchy denim
