Jeans have always been the hardest thing for a women to shop for..
because for one: no one woman has the same exact body shape and for two: not every “trend” is for everybody. Fortunately for you as long as you have a great fit that accentuates your figure your jean will never go out of style! Here are some common problems that a lot of people have with jeans and lucky for you I have a solution for each of them!
The Little/ Flat Butt
This is a problem I struggle with so it is the one I am most knowledgeable about. I’ve looked high and low to find ways to make my rear end look larger. These are the best tips I’ve come up with:
- Look for back pockets with details such as pocket flaps, embellishments, designs, etc. Pretty much the more bulk and dimension your pocket has the bigger it will make your butt look.
- Look for pockets that are spaced a little wider. The wider the pockets are spaced will give your bump more width.
- Stick with a low to mid rise. The lower your rise is to your butt will make it look plumper rather than a high rise that would certainly make your already flat butt look too long.
- Choose a jean with stretch (lycra) in it not a stiff jean. Lycra is a material they put in jeans to make them more stretchy and less stiff. A stiff jean will only make your butt look flat and squished while a jean with stretch helps follow the curve of your figure.
- ALWAYS choose a dark washed jean. The darker the jean the slimmer the effect. It always looks classier and more put together to wear a dark washed jeans rather than a light worn one. “Worn” and faded jeans will almost alway emphasize the area in which they are most worn which usually happens to be the thigh.
- Choose a straight style jean. A jean that is straight style follows a straight line from your hip to your ankle, In doing so it doesn’t buckle at your knee. When your jean buckles at the knee it will make the other parts of the jean look larger so definitely chose a jean that does not hug your knees.
- Choose a jean with a little more of a flare/ boot cut. AS LONG AS it doesn’t hug your knees too much, you can choose this style jeans also. It will help bring proportion to your legs by adding a little width to your calves.
- Get a jean with flat or no pockets in the front. Pocket openings almost always add width to wear they are so to divert that pick a jean with a faux pocket or a pocket that sits completely flat on your hip.
- A skinny jean or jegging. The closer the jean openings are to your ankle, the more it will emphasize the other parts of your legs. By making this area of your jeans the closest to your body the more curvaceous it will make your hips look.
- Pick a rise that sits right on your hip. Picking a jean that sits on the widest part of your hip will help your figure stand out more.
- A distressed jean. You can really wear any type of jean but picking one with some fading and distressing in the thigh area will give you a little more curve.
- Colored/printed jeans. For one its a big trend right now and for two a brighter color on the bottom half of your body will make it look a little larger.
