When it comes to women’s jeans you really are spoilt for choice. There are literally hundreds of different styles available online and in the shops. Skinny, flared, tapered, stonewashed, distressed, embroidered, you name it; provided you look in the right place you can find all of these styles and more.
Having a choice is great, but it can also be bewildering. Sometimes you just do not know where to start. Fortunately, there are easy ways to narrow down your options. A good starting point is identifying your body type and which cut of jeans is likely to suit you the best.
Jeans for the curvier woman
If you are quite a curvy woman, one of the problems you are likely to have is finding jeans that stay up. For you, high-waisted jeans are usually the best option. They are far less likely to roll back at the waist leaving you with your belly hanging over the top. This is uncomfortable and really does not make the most of your curves.
Jeans for petite women
For petite women, length is likely to be the main issue. If possible, shop for your jeans in specialist shops. This is, by far, the best way to find jeans that actually fit. It really is worth spending a little extra if you have to. After all, in all likelihood, you are going to be wearing your jeans for several years, so it is a worthwhile investment in yourself.
If you have to buy from mainstream retailers, stick to straight-cut or skinny jeans. You can take these styles up without changing the way they hang too much. This is not possible with tapered or boot-cut jeans. Cutting a few inches off of the bottom will just change the way they look too much and they will feel all wrong.
Women with large thighs
For women with muscular or large thighs, jean buying can be a bit of a nightmare. They tend to cut in, be uncomfortable and can ride up your leg, as you walk. For you, wide legged cuts are usually the best answer.
Jeans for big hipped women
If you are a hippy woman, finding the right fit is no mean feat. There is a tendency for manufacturers to forget that even small women can have quite wide hips. In general, you will have more success if you shop mainly for high-rise cropped jeans. For you, stretch jeans can also be a good option. They may feel a bit too tight at first, but after a couple of weeks wear will give a bit and stay looking good until the Elastin starts to go.
