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.

Denim Fever

What is it about our favorite denim that we love so much? What do you look for when you are looking for a new pair of jeans? Is it the color, name brand, studs or stitching? There is a variety of things that we all look for when shopping for that perfect pair of jeans. Here are a few things to look for this season when shopping for the trendiest jeans.

Sandblast- This is a process where before the jeans are washed they are literally shot with guns of sand in order to make them look as if they have been worn.

Abrasion- In this process they wash the garments to try to make it look worn or faded by scraping or rubbing the surface with the fabric. Pumice stones are frequently used in this process.

Rivets/Studs- These are usually found on the pockets of trendy jeans. They are the small jewels used to make designs that really stand out.

Heavy Stitching- This is also usually found on the back pockets. This is different from normal stitching to create a heavier design. It is also used along the front part of the jeans to reinforce them.
