Shopping for jeans is one of my worst nightmares.
Low waist, high waist, stretch, straight cut, boot cut … aargh, it is a horror to stand there while your shopping assistant grabs every possible jeans in the store for you to try on. And don't even get me started on the changing room. The tiny little room gives me the heebeejeebies. Not a great place if you are even remotely claustrophobic.
Coming back to the topic of the hour, this video gives a clear idea about what kind of jeans suits your body type perfectly. Take a look at it and educate yourself, seriously
If you have a…
Petite frame: Skinny or straight-leg jeans are best because they're the easiest to tailor if they need to be hemmed. Stay away from cuffs, which make you look even shorter than you are.
Apple shape: The most important factor for apples is where the waist of the jean hits. You want it to be right in the middle, not below your waist, or you'll have the dreaded muffin-top effect to deal with.
Plus-size figure: Straight-legged, dark denim jeans with stretch are the most flattering and slimming. Forget patches or embellishment of any kind, as they distract from the clean lines.
Pear shape: Low-rise jeans are ideal because they visually shorten the widest part of your body. Stiff jeans with less stretch hold in your shape the most.
Athletic build: Jeans with lots of stretch are key because they fit around muscular legs and won't leave a gap in the back of a slim waist.
Long and lean: Go for a pair with flair at the bottom. They'll balance out the string-bean look and cover your shoes a bit more.
Hourglass figure: High-waist jeans are great for drawing attention to a small waist, which can get overshadowed by curves above and below.
New-mom body: Dark denim with lots of stretch is perfect for accommodating and camouflaging a post-baby belly. Also key: something affordable, as your size is most likely temporary.
