How to Find the Perfect Jeans that Suits Your Body Type

Perfect jeans for your body shape
Even though jeans are the fashion staples seen in almost every women’s wardrobe, finding the perfect jeans that suit your body type can be a daunting task. Unfortunately, in India most of the women are not aware about the different sizes and patterns pertaining to every body type and they just pick randomly only considering their waist size.

You will be amazed to know that there is an array of designs and patterns available suiting almost every figure and requirement. No matter how pricey your jeans is, you can only put your best foot forward only when you are comfortable in your jeans. So, apart from style, comfort plays a key role when buying a pair of tailor-fit jeans.

So, here is a quick round-up on tips to find perfect jeans. Continue reading!

If you have heavy butts

  • When your problem area lies in your butts then you should never go for high-waist jeans rather opt for mid-waist (for petite ladies) and low raise (for taller ladies)
  • Go for without or the smallest possible pockets
  • In order to conceal your hips, do not even go for jeans that have front pockets
  • Do not bleach shades, instead go for darker shades as they will make you look slimmer

If your butt is flat

  • Unlike the above body type, you can go for bleached jeans with pockets both at the front and back side
  • Pick a narrow style and with many pockets in order to seal off the gap behind
  • if you could find a pair with patchwork i.e. made up of different parts of jeans then it would be great or else if you’re good at sewing then have a Patchwork Jeans DIY project this holiday season
  • Go for wide cut classic jeans, that complements your figure

If you’ve thick thighs

  • You should for straight-cut jeans which are slightly broader at the edges, provided if you have strong legs
  • Go for darker shades to make your thighs look slimmer
  • Do not go for too tight items, as they will only highlight your flaw area
  • Wear heels instead of boots or flats to make your thighs look taller

If you’ve short legs

  • Avoid designs that just reach up to your waist line
  • Flairs are not of your type. A strict no to them as they will only make you look more shorter
  • Try to pair them with a matching top or blouse, this will virtually make your limbs look taller
  • Since you’ll be wearing heels, so make sure the hemline of the pants fall on the heels
  • Make sure your selected item is not giving you enough space at the back. The loose-fitting at the hips will make your buttocks just pop up when you bend, so avoid such pairs
  • Even if your sales man provokes you to buy that piece by suggesting that belt will take care of that loose area, do not listen to him. Ideally, your jeans should always make you feel good, no matter whether you’re standing, bending, dancing or sitting
  • Always go for simple designs without any kind of exaggeration
  • Only if you’ve flat bottoms, go for decorated/embellished pockets or else avoid them

Last but not the least, if you are buying from any physical store then always go with your friend or spouse, who will give you honest opinion rather how you find yourself in the mirror
