Follow our tips for choosing jeans that flatter your figure and minimize your flaws
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.
