The Best Jeans for Your Body

Jeans, now considered as important to a woman’s wardrobe as the little black dress, are a staple in every mom’s wardrobe!  The search for the perfect fitting jeans is an ongoing journey. You need a new pair of jeans after you have your baby and your body has changed. You need a new pair after you’ve changed your lifestyle and lost body fat. You need a new pair because you’re sick of your old pair.  And, just so we are clear, you can never have too many “perfect pairs”.Why is it so challenging to find the right style of jeans for your body? Styles change and your body changes. If you’ve found the “perfect” pair in the past, it may not be such a perfect fit for you now.  Or worse, they discontinued the style (how dare they?!)  The truth is, you’ll need to try on a bunch of jeans before you find the right one for your body. Promise yourself you will commit to spending the time it requires.  Don’t settle.  Your relationship with your beloved jeans is much like your relationship with a man…if you settle on less than the “perfect fit”, you won’t be happy long term.  So, stick to it!  Don’t worry about the label, size or price (jeans are an investment!). Try on everything that appeals to you- and some that don’t- immediately strike your fancy to determine what fits you right.The Magic of Dressing for Your Body Type:It’s a really cool skill to learn to dress for your body type.  You can use clothes to camouflage wide hips, emphasize great arms, or visually make yourself taller.  Acquiring these skills takes time but once you learn which body parts you should spotlight, and those you should not, finding clothes to work to your advantage is a talent you’ll want to possess.

Below are a few ways jean styles can help change your appearance:

  • If you want to look taller avoid Capri-length jeans. The longer the jeans, the longer your body will look. This is an important tip for petite women.
  • If you have a long torso avoid measuring for super-low risers- it will make you look imbalanced.
  • If you have a short torso, low rise is the way to go.
  • If you feel you have a large backside, avoid jeans with a high waist as it can make your body look even more pear-shaped. Make sure to have back pockets.
  • For a flat backside, jeans without back pockets are a good option as it will flatter and accentuate your bottom. If you go for pockets, flaps are good for adding volume.
  • High-waist jeans can flatten a belly. However, avoid high-waist jeans if you feel your hips and tummy are prominent…A mid-rise jean in a fuller leg cut will look best on you.
