The Best Jeans for Your Body Shape

5 perfect denim picks for 5 different body types

-Paige Herman Axel

Next to bathing suits, finding the right jeans could be one of the most daunting shopping tasks. In my experience, about one of every five pairs fits just right, and when I find that pair, I usually buy that style in every color available. All of our bodies are different, and what works for one might not work for the next. Personally, I’ve worn three of the below five styles at different points (and weights) in my life, and the other two come highly recommended.

j brand curvy fit jeans

If you’re curvy…
There’s nothing worse than trying to stuff yourself into too-tight jeans, and when you have curves, you need to accentuate them with the right pair of jeans. This means enough room in the waist so you can sit comfortably, enough room in the hips so you can zip them, enough room in the thighs so your legs don’t look like sausages, and a little bit of stretch. Enter Joe’s Jeans in the “Honey” cut. $138, Nordstrom.com

Calvin Klein lean bootcut jeans

If you have a non-existent rear…
The grass is always greener on the other side, right? When you have some junk in the trunk, you’re constantly paranoid your butt looks big— and when you have a flat tush, all you want is some projection. The key to creating the illusion of a shapelier derriere lies in the pockets. Look for flaps that add volume, like the ones on cK Calvin Klein’s Lean Bootcut. $79.50, Nordstrom.com

    love joe’s jeans, because they now come in petite and i no longer have to have altered!

    Are you freakin KIDDING ME?!?!? Not one pair of jeans under $50?!?!?! Sorry, I don’t care how well they fit, I’m not spending the equivalent of three tanks of gas ($69.50), or two weeks worth of groceries ($181) on jeans.

    I’m definitely really picky about my jeans, so hard to find the right pair!

  4. pepper56 says:

    I agree with you yogapantz – I am NOT spending that much on a pair of jeans. Surely there are more affordable options?

  5. DaleK says:

    LOL!!! It costs me about $45 to fill my tank with 87 octane and about the same as yogapantz for less than a week of groceries… so no, I’m not spending this much on jeans either! ;) I don’t think I’ve ever spent over $40.

    And what is up with skinny jeans? Hate ‘em. They are so 80s! Or, I’m so old. Either or…

    I can usually find a Levi – 528 most recently – or Bongo cut that works for “athletic”. Once and a while I find a decent fit at Target.

    I like the tips that they describe how to fit your shape but ya, that price is way too steep. We are in a recession here! :P I don’t mind them suggesting high end clothes but a cheap alternative would be more helpful.

    I found this to be very helpful – never sure what style will suit me best but you made it easy. thanks
