How to Choose the Best Fitting Jeans for Your Figure

Post by Admin on Fri Jan 23, 2009 10:34 am

Very Happy By far, blue jeans are the most important clothing in
today's wardrobe. Because they are durable and can be worn with just
about anything, they are universal.

Why is it that you have one or two favorite pairs that you wear
most of the time? It's probably because you have ran across a style
and color that looks best on your shape. Unfortunately, they
eventually wear out, you gain or lose a few pounds, or you throw
them out for a new trend.

If you would rather go to the dentist then shop for new
jeans, you're not alone. Just the thought of trying on multiple
pairs of jeans in the fitting rooms can make the strongest of us
cringe in fear.

We've got some shopping tips to help you find a pair that will flatter your figure and cut down on the stress
involved when you find a pair that looks great on the rack -- but not
so good on you.

Plan Ahead

Set aside a good chunk of time when you begin your quest for a
good pair of jeans. If you're in a hurry, you'll probably make some
bad decisions and end up returning the jeans to the store.

Choose a Good Fit

Don't buy jeans because the size on the label looks good.
Sizes and cuts vary widely by the brand, so start with your general
size-range and don't be reluctant to choose a size larger than what
you usually get. A comfortable pair of jeans that fit well will look
the best on you.

The Darker the Color, the Better

If you're concerned about extra weight, stay away from
light-colored or stonewashed jeans. Dark (indigo) blue and black
denim jeans with some added Lycra make you look slimmer and will go with just about
anything. Choose angled back pockets to help minimize your backside
and stay away from jeans that have no pockets at all.

Look for a Long Hem

When you go shopping, wear a pair of shoes with heels that are
(at least) similar to what you usually wear with jeans. For
thinner-looking legs, the hem of the jeans should cover a good part
of your shoes and almost reach the floor. Keep in mind that when
jeans shrink, so can the length -- so it's better to go with the
longer pair.

Go with the Boot Cut

Stay away from large flare legs that will add bulk. Boot cut
jeans have just the right amount of curve at the bottom of the legs
to look stylish and make your legs appear longer.

Trends are OK

If you've been dying to try a pair of low-rise hipsters, go
ahead. Just make sure you're comfortable wearing them and they don't
aren't so low that you've got too much showing. Wear a pair of
bikini panties underneath so you don't have "granny panties" ruining
your fashionable look.

Get a Second Opinion

Take along a friend who is on the same mission. Sometimes a
different perspective is all you need to point you in the right
direction. If you both like how a pair looks on you, chances are,
it's a good choice.
