Which Jeans Are Best For Your Body Type


Jeans are one of those staple items that every woman needs in their wardrobe. They can be dressed up or dressed down, perfect for any time of day, and also are great for wearing all year round. A lot of people struggle and say that jeans don’t flatter them, but the truth is there is a pair of jeans out there for everyone! You just need to find the right shape and style that suits you, rather than just going with the latest fashion trend. 

Finding the perfect pair of jeans to flatter your body type can be a stressful time, which is why we’ve put this guide together to help you. Keep reading for our recommendations of what jeans you should go for that will suit your body type.

Matching your jeans to your body type

High waisted jeans for length

For the petite people out there who want to make themselves look taller than they are, a high waisted pair of jeans are the way to go. Wearing high waisted jeans gives you the illusion of having longer legs and making your body look more in proportion. Not only this, but they hit perfectly on the waist so are great at pulling you in and giving you a great shape. Skinny jeans are the best option for creating this illusion, especially if you opt for a pair that finish just before your ankle. This also helps to create that elongated look by showing a little bit of skin before your shoes which gives the appearance of longer legs.

Flared jeans for better proportions

Sometimes women who are taller say they feel like if they wear skin tight jeans it just makes them look like a long stick. Although skinny jeans can be very flattering, they aren’t great at bringing shape into your outfit: this is where flared jeans come in. The wide bottom of the jeans help to bring more shape in and create more of a silhouette to the outfit, which actually helps to accentuate your curves and show off your wait line. The tight fit up until the knees shows off your figure, and then the flare out at the bottom gives off another dimension and makes your body look in proportion. 

Low waist for a longer torso

Low waist hasn't been as popular in recent years, so it’s easy to just jump on the trend of high waisted and then wonder why you don’t feel like your best self in them. If you are someone who has very long legs, but feel like your torso isn’t in proportion with your body, then low waisted jeans are the way to go. Not only are they really flattering around your bum, but they will also help to give you the illusion of having a longer torso that matches with the rest of your body. High waisted jeans will do the opposite of this and just give you more leg length, which isn’t going to help if your aim is to make your body look longer.

Jeans are an item that have truly stayed in fashion throughout the decades, so you should absolutely have a pair in your wardrobe. The most important part is to just shop around and try on different styles until you find what really suits your body type, rather than just trying on one pair and then giving up. Remember, high street shops will never have your exact size, so if you do find a great pair but feel they could do with being a little better fitted then alterations are available to do this!
