Find Your Most Flattering Jeans
If You Have A Full Bottom
A dark, even wash with a slight flare and stretch.
Super-skinny jeans, high-waist styles and really wide legs.
amp#149; Try a slightly lower rise; it will allow room for the derriere.
amp#149; A boot-cut style will balance out the body.
amp#149; Avoid small back pockets, which will make the behind look bigger.
If You Have Short Legs
Styles that hit near your natural waist with straight or slightly flared legs.
Hip-huggers, cropped cuts and anything overly baggy.
amp#149; Trouser jeans with a tucked-in blouse can whittle the waist.
amp#149; Flared styles should be subtle in shape.
amp#149; Wear jeans with a cropped jacket to shorten the torso.
If You Have A Short Waist
A lower rise and a longer hem length.
High-waist styles and details around the top.
amp#149; Belts should blend in by being slim and neutral.
amp#149; Skinny jeans with longer, untucked tops camouflage your waist.
amp#149; Boyfriend styles that sit on the hips are great weekend alternatives.
If You're Curvy
Styles with at least a bit of stretch and straight or flared legs. You might have to fit your hips and behind, then have a tailor take in the waist.
Super-low-cut styles that will sit mid-hip and skinny jeans that are too tight on the bottom half of your legs.
amp#149; For tighter styles, try going a size up and tailoring them.
amp#149; Dark washes are most slimming.
amp#149; Opt for minimal hip details, avoid pocket embroidery.
If You're Short
A classic style that doesn’t overwhelm your small frame and one with a natural waist.
Wide-leg jeans and low rises.
amp#149; Wear legs slightly long, and pair your jeans with heels.
amp#149; Darker rinses can have an elongating look.
amp#149; Skinny styles should also be long, not cropped.
