Best Jeans for Curvy

You Can Go Low with Low-Rise

Contrary to popular belief, low-rise denim can be a great fit for curvy girls—there are just a few guidelines you have to follow. They should feature a wider waistband that fits snugly on your hips without cutting into you. A fitted style (like skinnies) keeps everything in place, while keeping a slim silhouette below the waist. Avoid super low-rise, or you will be dipping into dangerous territory!

Mid-Rise—Your Perfect In-between

This universally flattering rise offers the most comfort and reigns in your tummy area, while offsetting fuller hips. It should hit just below your navel giving you coverage without going up too high.  A bootcut style plays up curves by adding balance and proportion to your figure, while a straight leg in a dark wash will make your legs look long and lean.

Opt for Jeans with Stretch

Regardless of the rise, lots of stretch in your denim is essential! Jeans made with a cotton-polyester or spandex blend will prevent the dreaded back gap (and minimize any risk of flashing). Plus, they’ll give you the ultimate curve hugging fit. 

Once you’ve found your dream jeans, it’s time to flaunt your best features! With these tips, you should be well equipped to look (and feel!) your very best self.
