Denim Guide: How to Find the Right Fit for Your Figure
Posted by Lauren Conrad laurenconrad.com
We’ve all been on that treasure hunt for that perfect pair of jeans at one point in our lives. It’s a process that takes effort, diligence, and endurance. In extreme cases, this unavoidable style search could last for endless hours, create caffeine overconsumption, and leave even the most expert shoppers feeling defeated at the end of the day. Classic blue jeans will always remain a yearlong style staple, so it’s important to find ones that do your body some good. Since the task of finding this “perfect fit” might seem daunting, I’ve gone ahead and done some of the legwork for you…literally! Everyone deserves to find their own true love in a pair of jeans, so take a peek at my denim guide below and allow me to simplify your search…
If you’re pear shaped… A pear shaped body type tends to carry weight in the hips, rear, and legs–the lower half. A mid-rise, balanced style will flatter your shape because it will elongate your legs. Ideally, you should search for pair of moderate skinnies. This streamlined fit creates a sleek look that will flatter your curvy zone. Be sure to stay away from super high-waisted jeans at all costs–they will shorten your legs and create a disproportioning effect.
If you’re apple shaped… Apple-shaped ladies need their denim to provide a little more “give” in the waistline, because they tend to carry their weight around the middle. Choose a fit that has a straight leg so that it shows off your assets, but without making you look middle-heavy. Steer clear of a super skinny, tight fit and avoid high-waisted trousers–which will draw negative attention to your middle area.
If you’re curvy… Girls with curvy body types must be very careful to select a style that will create a slimming effect in all the right places. Show off your curves by picking a pair that hugs your assets and flatters not-so-favorite features. A lot of denim brands have fits that are marked “curvy,” which just means that the jeans are constructed specifically for curvier figures (plus they usually have some stretch to them, which is never a bad thing). Lately, be sure to go for dark wash denim versus light to create a slimming effect.
If you’re busty… A wide leg fit will help balance out your bust so you don’t appear top-heavy. Choosing a lighter color wash will also draw the eye downward and away from your chest.
If you have a petite build… Petite girls can go for almost any cut, but it’s a good idea to try a pair of jeans that lengthens your legs. A long, super skinny cut will show off your tiny figure and curves, while a pair of high-waisted trousers will create the illusion of height and length (I suggest wearing a pair of heeled wedges to make your legs look even longer).Just be sure to avoid anything that is too baggy–you will look like you’re drowning in denim! SOS!
If you have an hourglass figure… If you have the curvy but balanced body type we call “hourglass.” This figure can wear almost any cut. but it’s important to show off your curves the right way, and skinnies will highlight your curves. A pair of wide-legged trouser jeans will work wonders for enhancing your waist, Also, make sure that you pick a pair that isn’t too low rise, or you might be exposing a little too much of your curves every time you sit down…if you know what I mean. If you’re dying to try a skinny leg style, choose one that has a contoured waist and is made from a stretchy material so that it will give a little in the hips and rear.
If you’re tall… If you’re lanky and lean, go ahead and show off those gorgeous gams. A low-rise pair will help give your shape proportion, and a high-rise style will make your legs look like they go on for days (which is never, ever a bad thing). You can rock a trouser style, a balanced boot cut, flared jeans, or an ultra skinny fit–just make sure that whatever style you choose emphasizes your best feature.
If you have an athletic shape… For girls who have toned, athletic bodies, your best bet is to create curves while evening out your shape at the same time. I would suggest bootcut or flared jeans that are fitted around the thighs and bum, but a little more relaxed around the calves and ankles.
Trends in fashion come and go, and some denim styles are fun to experiment with (70s bell bottoms anyone?). But a pair of jeans that truly flatters your figure and hugs your body perfectly will always stay in style. At the end of the day, try on a lot of different styles and see what you feel the most comfortable in. Personally, I adore dark denim skinny jeans. It took me a little while to figure out that this color and cut is my go-to. Now that I know what works for me, I can confidently shop for denim without hesitation.

YOU WILL BE AMAZED HOW YOU LOOK!
Lift your butt, flatten your tummy, slim your thighs.
Buying my first pair of Moda Jeans Cheviotto I was so excited, as I had heard through a few friends who have them that they are amazing. And you know what, they were right, my Cheviotto pants are the most comfortable, easy to wear pants and look amazing, whenever I wear them I always get loads of compliments. Will definitely be purchasing more, and recommending to all my friends. So thanks Moda Jeans, you know how to make a woman feel amazing :)))
I absolutely love these pants! I never have good luck shopping for jeans, especially online, but these fit so well. The cut is perfect and they make my butt look amazing! I'm only 5 ft 2, so pants are a hit or miss for me because I have short legs. These are a little bit long, but since they're skinny jeans, you can't really tell. Love everything about these and I want more lol.
They fit perfect.. I've never had a favorite brand of anything. And these jeans are amazing I love every pair I've gotten so far..
