How To Select Jeans For Your Body Type
First thing you need to do to select well-fitting jeans is to know your body type. Categorize your body into the slim body type, athletic body type, curvy body types, and full-figured body type. You would also have to pay attention to your height; whether you are tall, medium or short. Not only that, you also need to determine your body shape. Take a measurement tape and measure these three distances carefully:
• Around you bust line (This is also equal to your bra size)
• Around the slimmest part of your waist.
• Around your hip bones.
Depending on which measurement is the highest, your body would be cone-shaped (bustline largest, tapering from bust to hips), pear shaped (hipline widest, bustline smallest), in shape of an hourglass (bustline and hipline same, slimmest in the middle), or a ruler-shaped body.
You can select different types of jeans to suit different body types:
The most fashionable style of jeans which you can select to show off your perfect figure. If you have a tall slender body, skinny jeans would show off your long legs. But no matter what your body shape- slim, wide, heavy, tall or petite- you can always select skinny some jeans which are meant for you. Pear shaped women should try dark jeans which do not taper to the ankle tightly otherwise their hips would look wider. They should select straight leg jeans instead. Cone shaped women should not wear pointy-toed shoes with their skinny jeans as it would highlight the tapering even more. If you have a short height do not bunch the jeans at the bottom as it will shorten the height. Women with short height can also wear skinny jeans with heels to give the illusion of height and slender legs. The best way to wear skinny jeans is to couple them with high-heeled boots.
These jeans are worn on the hipline instead of the waist and are suitable for those who have a slim body (shown in the title picture). Women with ‘love handles’ or wide/ heavy hips are not advised to wear low rise jeans. Also, women with short height should not wear these jeans as they make the legs look shorter. These jeans are for the ladies who have those flat abs or those who have a curvy body and they want to highlight it. If you are wearing low rise jeans be careful when you are bending forward as it can expose your buttock area. Try to wear slightly longer tee shirts to overcome this. Cone shaped women should select to wear low rise jeans. Also, low rise jeans are a great way to show off tattoo on your lower tummy or back.
