You might have tried all of the stores around you, the big box stores and the small boutiques alike, and been unable to find the perfect pair of jeans. This can be extremely frustrating because jeans might be a staple in your wardrobe but if you can't find any new pairs that work for you after all of your jeans have worn out, you might need to change your entire style. Here are some tips for finding the best pair of jeans for your body.
1. All of Your Limbs are Shorter
If all of your limbs tend to run on the short side, this means that you are petite. Your goal when purchasing jeans is likely to make your legs look as long as possible in order to help give your body a stronger sense of symmetry. You can do this by simply purchasing a pair of straight jeans that fit you well in the waist. If you are on the fence about the length of your jeans, opt to purchase them so that they are a little bit long. Make sure that your straight jeans hug as close to your figure as possible in order to enhance their lengthening effect on your legs. Getting low waist jeans is a good option if you have a short torso that you also want to make look longer.
2. You Carry Your Weight in Your Middle
If you carry most of your weight in your abdomen, you will want to be sure that you purchase a pair of jeans that rises up high enough to avoid giving you love handles or making the sides of your body bulge out, but not so high that this potential problem area gets more attention than it deserves. Instead, choose a pair of mid-rise jeans in any cut. If you are seeking to make your body look more proportional, consider getting boot cut or flare jeans.
3. You Have a Tremendously Long Torso
Finally, if you have a very long torso, you are going to be in the same boat as a person whose legs are shorter than he or she might prefer. You want to even out your proportions by choosing high-waisted jeans or mid-rise jeans. Avoid extremely low-rise jeans because these are going to make your torso look even longer.
For more information, talk to the owner of a small women's boutique. He or she will be able to spend much more time with you getting fitted than an employee at a big-box retail store.
