Are you someone who struggles finding the perfect pair of jeans? I personally grew up always trying to figure out which jeans look best on my body type, and never could quite figure it out.
So after doing some research (and making a TikTok), Im created the ultimate guide to help you find your perfect pair of jeans based on your personal body type!
If you have a hourglass figure, you have a full bust, a curvy lower half, and a smaller waist. Bootcut and flare jeans are fitted through the tights and flare towards the bottom to showoff your best features. There are lots of styles out there that flatter to various curve sizes making finding jeans a breeze! Stay far away from jeans that don’t offer any stretch as these will be extremely uncomfortable to wear.
Avoid – Any bleaching on the thigh area and large back pockets.
Those of you with a pear shape figure will benefit most from jeans that will highlight your small waist but comfortably fit through your legs. Boyfriend and mom jeans are your go-tos. These jeans are tailor to your body type as they will fit through your hips and thighs without giving you annoying gaps at the waist. Relaxed mid-rise styles will also work well.
Avoid – Skinny high waist jeans, super light washes and low-rises.
3. Plus Size
If you have a plus-size figure you need to find jeans that elongate your legs and hug your curves! Bootcut and flare styles will balance you out on bottom, and straight leg styles will even out your shape.
Avoid – Cropped styles, mid-rise styles, and high-waist styles that will emphasize your tummy area.
4. Athletic Shape
Those of you with an athletic build will want to find styles that give you more shape. A couple ways to go this are with back pockets, textures fabrics and embellishments, and lower rise styles. Skinny jeans will help add shape too by hugging to every curve.
Avoid – High-rise styles and straight legs that will flatten your shape out.
If you’re tall finding jeans can be extra tricky due do your need to find an appropriate length. Many brands have jean collections that feature “tall” styles so always keep an eye out for these. Being tall, you can pull off more styles than most, but you will look best in mid-rise and low-rise fits. Bootcut jeans are you go-to style as they will flatter your legs best and add some shape on bottom.
Avoid – Super skinny and boyfriend jeans.
For petite body shapes, finding jeans can be just as tricky as those who are tall because length is your biggest obstacle. Find a pair of straight leg jeans that fit snug, as looser styles will cause you to lose your shape. Dark washes will flatter your shape best and help give the appearance of longer legs.
Avoid – Cropped styles which will make you look shorter as well as baggy fits.
