We've all been there. Desperately trying to heave ourselves into a tiny pair of jeans, inexplicably swearing at everything in the changing room, before collapsing in a huff and swearing off cake for life.
Well, this nightmare is officially a thing of the past with our handy guide to picking the perfect pair of jeans for your body shape, starting with these general tips for buying jeans...
Tip 1: Stretchy denim is always the most flattering. Not only does it work on most body types, it moulds to your body shape over time, and is most comfortable.
Curvier or heavier women can benefit from a higher rise, which helps hide the extra weight in the middle and creates a leg-lengthening effect.
Opt for larger pockets if you’d like to hide a larger bum and vice-versa if you’re looking to enhance your bum.
Once you’ve got those three tips down, find out what to look out for when it comes to your body shape:
This curvy body shape can pull off wide-legged jeans without looking too heavy. Opt for a mid-rise with a flat front to flatter at the right places.
If you’re heavier at the hips, avoid the tapered look that skinny jeans can create. Instead, opt for a low-rise flare which helps streamline your body and make you look taller.
Athletic bodies can rock straight-legged styles just as well as they can flared styles. If you’d like to look curvier, a mid-rise jean with a slight boot-cut can help create a curvy silhouette.
Petite: If you’re petite, you can embrace your short stature by opting for cropped skinnies, although regular-length skinny jeans are also very flattering turned up.
