The Best Jeans For Your Body Shape

Find the Perfect Jeans for Your Shape

Jeans are an essential in every woman’s wardrobe. But with jeans being so popular, there are so many different cuts and styles of denim on the market that shopping for your perfect pair can feel like an overwhelming exercise. If you’re confused by all the choices out there, it’s time to narrow down the options and get back to basics. Once you know which cuts and styles suit your body type, it’s so much easier to shop for the jean that’s perfect for you.

Best Jeans for an Hourglass Body

If you’re an hourglass, you have a full bust and curvy lower half, with a smaller waist. We love a bootcut or flare jean on you. This silhouette — which is fitted through the thighs and then flares out to wider hems starting at the knee — flatters you because the wider bottoms balance out your generous hips, while the snugger fit up top helps to show off your best assets.

Best Jeans for a Pear Shape Body

Women with a pear shape figure will look great in jeans that elongate the legs and flatter a bottom-heavy build. If you’re full through the hips, bottom and thighs, and smaller above the waist, choose a trouser jean to create a long, continuous line from hips to hems. This sophisticated jean is designed to mimic traditional trousers, with a broad waistband, a snug fit in the rear, seamed back pockets and wider legs, so it’s easy to style for work, as well as for casual wear. If you’re a pear who loves the look of skinny jeans, we suggest faking it with straight leg jeans. These jeans are cut to have a slim silhouette, which will look “skinnier” on a pear shape body.

Best Jeans for a Plus Size Body

If you’re plus size, your perfect jeans help to balance your bountiful hips and behind and elongate legs, while skimming over your curves (as opposed to squeezing them). We love a straight leg jean for you. The secret to this cut’s figure flattery is the way it’s designed to fall in a long, lean line down the body, skimming your shape without squashing your legs. The form-fitting cut of this jean still works to balances hips and thighs, for an overall slenderizing effect, especially when you choose a dark wash denim.

Best Jeans for a Boy Shape Body

You’ll look best in skinny or super-skinny jeans that hug your body tightly, with super-tapered legs at the bottom, to fake shapely legs and create a curvier silhouette from top to bottom.

To amplify your behind, look for back pockets with flaps (such as most jeans from the Hudson Jeans brand), embellishments or decorative stitching to bring attention to this area.

There’s no doubt about it: Jeans are the most versatile item hanging in our closet. No matter when you wear them, where you wear them, or how you wear them, there are a pair of jeans to fit nearly every mood and occasion. It’s no wonder, then, that denim is considered a wardrobe essential.
