It’s All in the Jeans

Published on September 27th 2005.


Jeans, the most versatile fashion garment created. Ever. Whether dressed up with a slinky top and a pair of spike heels, or teamed with a simple white vest and pumps, jeans look hot no matter what. However, finding the perfect pair of jeans still overwhelms us. Until now. Find yourself the ideal pair of jeans with Body Confidential’s denim guide.


Pear Shape
Finding the right jeans can be a nightmare for hour-glass shaped bods mainly because they have a waist that is smaller than their hips and thighs.

Perfect: Go for jeans with a flared leg, boot cut or pattern around the ankle area. This will direct attention to your lower leg, so make sure you have got some fab shoes on as well!

Avoid: Jeans that are too tight around the thigh area, baggy or tapered styles (this season’s skinny jeans à la Kate Moss are OUT).

Wide Hips
Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé have made curves sexy again, but jean designers are still having problems creating jeans that look great on curvy girls.

Perfect: Go for jeans with stretch in them. Jeans with a low-rise, hipster waist and a slight flare at the leg will help balance out your silhouette.

Avoid: Styles with really big or really small back pockets are a no no unless you want to do a ‘J Lo’ and draw attention to your bum. Pass over jeans with a ‘worn look’ as these will draw attention to all the wrong places.

Boyish, Tall & Slim
Long legs, the object of desire for short girls and men alike, but for leggy ladies they come with a whole raft of shopping dilemmas. Long legs look great in most clothes but it’s difficult to find a pair of jeans mid-ankle.

Perfect: Tall women look fabulous in the drainpipe, skinny jeans, and as most women can’t carry them off you can be certain your jeans will look individual. If you really want to draw attention to your perfect pins go for jeans that have unusual stitching or a design along the outside of the leg.

Avoid: Jeans with a tapered leg (Not a good look on anyone really!). They will only accentuate the size of your feet (taller girls often tending to have bigger feet) and make your legs look strange.

Long Torso
If you find it hard to find a t-shirt that covers your midriff then you’re in good company. Elle Mcpherson and Britney Spears both have the classic boyish figure, no hips, flat stomach. Long-torsoed people often find that waistbands gape out from the hip and their jeans often bag at the top and around their thighs.

Perfect: To show off that flat stomach and give yourself a bit of a bum at the same time go for low rise, hipster jeans. These will define your waist, making your bottom half look longer and leaner. Wear a belt whenever possible.

Avoid: Jeans with a long, bulky or tight crotch.


PetiteOne of the most annoying things about being petite is having to have every pair of trousers you buy taken up. Not only do you end up adding at least £10 to the cost of your jeans, but you also run the risk of losing most of the flare or any detailing.

Perfect: Straight leg jeans always flatter petite figures. If you’re looking to elongate your legs a boot cut with heels is a great option. Dark-coloured jeans will streamline your figure.

Avoid: Avoid styles with turn ups and Capri-styles.
