Follow our tips for choosing jeans that flatter your figure and minimize your flaws
Fit challenge: Large hips
Jeans that fit your hips are too big in the waist causing the fabric to bulk out.
Solution: Look for jeans with straight legs and a lightweight fabric that will drape nicely. Many companies―like Lee, Lane Bryant and Gap―offer jeans in a variety of cuts that address specific body types.
What to look for:
- Legs that hang straight from the hip tend to be more flattering than a boot cut.
- Plain finishes are best. Avoid fading effects that emphasize specific parts of the body.
- Opt for trouser styles that have back pockets, plain jeans make your hips appear wider.
