Fit a boyish figure
Debra Mayer-Cabe, 52, has a straight figure, so jeans tend to be "too tight if the waist is too high," she says.
* Find a jean with a slim cut through the hips, thighs and rear to accentuate curves.
* Buy a midrise style so the waist width will be closer to the hip width.
* Steer clear of relaxed fits.
