Women come in a variety of shapes and sizes so a certain style of dress that looks good on someone who is tall and slim, may not necessarily look good on someone who is short and stocky. Finding a pair of jeans that look great and yet still feel comfortable can become quite a challenge but with a few tips, you should be well on your way to a style of jeans that suits you.
Short figured women should opt for jeans that make their legs appear longer. This means jeans that are higher in the waist but make sure that they still fall below your belly button. Jeans that come above your belly button will draw attention and cause irritation. Short women who are stocky should try to find jeans which are stretch denim since this will accommodate curves and hip sizes. Another tip for short women is to find jeans that have a longer inseam. Having a floor length hem on your jeans will make you appear taller than what you are. Just remember to wear shoes with somewhat of a heel when you wear floor length jeans.
Tall women shop for jeans with a hemline that is ankle length. Also, low rise jeans works well to give the legs a shorter appearance. If you are tall and slim, opting for jeans which are flared which can give the illusion of shape. Women who are without curves can also wear tapered jeans which are fitted at the ankle. Tapered jeans give the appearance of wider hips and curvy thighs. Finding the right pair of jeans which give you the appearance you aim for will make you feel more comfortable with your body style.
Women who are trying to hide a bulging belly should look into a jean style that rides higher up on the tummy, yet still below the belly button, in order to give the appearance of a flatter tummy. There are jeans that are specifically made for tummy control that are softer stretch denim for both appearance and comfort. This means you can wear your jeans comfortable, look great and not feel so uncomfortable with the size and shape of your body. Tummy control jeans are designed to make you look and feel slimmer.
If you are a woman who has a flat bottom, there are jeans designed to give you lift and support which adds shape and size to your bottom. The one thing that women should never do is wear big baggy jeans to try and hide a flat bottom. In fact, baggy jeans will make your bottom appear flatter and will also make you appear larger in waist size than what you really are around the waist, hips and thighs. Always make sure that your jeans fit comfortably and yet snug enough that you do not give off an appearance that is opposite of what you desire.
For women who are built with a bigger bottom, try to stick with low riding pockets and jeans that are without embellishments and adornments on the pockets. Any designs on the pockets will draw attention to that area of your body causing people to notice your bigger bottom. You want to avoid this by wearing plain pocketed jeans. Straight leg jeans work best for women with this problem due to the fact that they are not quite as tight fitting on the backside and therefore gives the appearance of a smaller bottom yet keeps the appearance of shape.
