Finding the Perfect Jeans

jeansFinding the right pair of jeans can be a daunting process. Here are some  quick tips to remember in the fitting room:

–    Any slenderizing jeans are going to be dark and made with strong fabric.

–    If your behind is large, one-on tone pocket embroidery helps detract attention from a potential troubled area.

–    Rounded pocket edges create a square behind a nice apple figure.

–    Stitching across the tops of pockets sends a person’s gaze up, not down.

–    Monochromatic stitching won’t point out thick thighs or bottoms.

–    If you have large hips, steer clear of tight ankles; they turn legs into drumsticks.

–    If you are blessed with love handles try mid-rise styles, 8 to 8.5 inches from crotch to waist.

–    Avoid boxy, “boyfriend” cuts if you have a boyish figure. They will mask your shape.  Also, look for pairs that rest on the pelvic bone.

–    To conceal a rounded tummy, look for jeans with a thick waistband.

–    If your figure is full, pockets that are too far apart will draw more attention to the backside.

–     And also remember that looking great in jeans requires a 360-degree approach – check out your rear view!
