What's Your Body Type?


How do you feel about going jean shopping? Do you hate it as much as I do? Jean shopping for us women is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack. I know when I go out to find new jeans that it is a mission that will most likely take me all day. Usually we wait until the last minute, when our jeans couldn’t possibly last another season, before we will go out and look for new ones. I believe that I have found a tool to help us all out when shopping for those dreadful jeans. If you know what type of figure your body is and what you should be on the lookout for could help you drastically cut you shopping time down. Let’s break this down into four body types and what cuts of jeans you should be trying on.

Hourglass Figure- Curvy jeans are going to be your friend here. You are looking for something that is going to hug your curves not contort them so you don’t want a super tight fitting jean. You should be looking for something that is more fitted in the hips with straight legs. This will help to slim and elongate your figure. Jeans with a little stretch will only add to your comfort level.

Pear Shape- Here you will want to find denim that is a higher rise they will give you a bit more room in the back to make sure everything is covered. This denim should be cut smaller in the waist compared to the hips and thighs. Wider legs are also a bonus here like boot cuts and flares. Large pockets without too much detail will also help because it will help draw more attention to your legs. Be cautious when wearing skinny jeans, they might be too tight in some places and won’t be comfortable.  If you want to be able to wear those cute boots everyone is wearing well you still can! Look for a type of boot cut jean, if you get boot socks you can easily tuck them into there and your jeans will easily fit into your boots!

Apple Shape- Well lucky you born with your amazing long legs! You make me jealous.  With your type of body shape you should look for slightly high to low rise jeans depending on how you feel about your tummy. High rise jeans will help to hold everything in where low rise will add curves to your figure. Your shape fits very well with skinny jeans and crops, this will only make your great long legs look even better!

Banana Figure- Again you have amazing long legs, but that will make your shopping a bit more difficult. You will have to be on the lookout for long inseams, which many stores don’t carry. Skinny jeans and boot cuts is what you should be on the lookout for. Skinny jeans with high heels are super trendy and boot cuts will tend to run a slight bit longer than flare jeans. These fits will help to add curves. Be careful not to get a fit that is baggy for you, this will only contort your look. Low rise fits are also good for you. Any type of denim with pocket details is going to look amazing on you! So go ahead and shop away for those super cute blinged out jeans!
