We understand the power of a really good pair of jeans. A proper fitting pair of baby blues can instantly change your mood, making you feel more confident and even a little sexy. However, finding that life-changing pair of jeans can be extremely difficult if you’re not built like a supermodel. (But even they have a tough time finding jeans that are long enough for their gazelle-like legs.)
From big butts to large thighs, long torsos and long legs, we found a variety of denim options cut to flatter your best features.
For taller women, finding a jean that doesn’t leave you with an awkward foot-to-ankle gap isn’t easy without a trip to a specialty shop. Our experts suggest looking for jeans that come in extra long styles as well as cropped styles that are shorter on purpose.
3. SHORT TORSOS
As a woman with a smaller midsection, it’s important to find hip-hugging styles or those that sit lower on your waist to give you the appearance of a longer midsection.
When it comes to jeans, your biggest problem is probably length, but if you’re ultra-petite you may struggle with waist sizing, too. Look for cropped cuts in dark washes that will elongate your legs.
6. BIG BUTTS
When searching for a pair of jeans that properly supports and shows off your derriere—look for high-waist flares, boyfriend styles, and those with a little extra stretch.
7. ROUND TUMMY
If your midsection is your biggest concern, choose a high-rise, stretch denim, or boot-cut style that covers and smoothes at the same time.
9. BIG HIPS
As much as we envy your Shakira-like hips finding denim to fit is no easy feat. Make sure to stay away from low-rise skinny styles that will cut up your frame, and instead turn to high-rise cropped styles with ample amounts of stretch.
10. LARGE THIGHS
Women with muscular thighs—we’re with you. When there’s a disparity between your thighs and waist, what you often end up with is a pair of jeans you can shimmy up your legs only to end up with a huge gap when you go to zip-and-snap. Your go-to styles should be wide-leg flares and those made with a super-stretch denim.
