The most wonderful thing about jeans is their versatility. Whether you are clearing out the garage, going to work or on your way to a dinner party, you can always wear a nice pair of jeans. But finding the right pair is not always easy. There is a lot to consider before taking the plunge and they must make you look even more stunning than you already are. It is important to consider the following when hunting for your perfect pair:
- Large pockets make your bum more striking.
- Back pockets slanted inwards towards each other give your bum a boost, as do high waists.
- V-shape waistbands lift your buttocks whereas A-line ones broaden them.
Different shaped bottoms require different jeans:
Avoid bright shades and preferably choose a plain colour. If you have wide hips, avoid skinny models and choose a straight leg instead. Choose a high or normal waist. Baggy models shorten your legs and make you look wider.
If you have thin thighs bright jeans are good. Slanted pockets and A-line fits suit you best. Skinnies are your best friend and low-cuts make your bum look plumper and give the impression of more hips.
Choose dark jeans and straight legs with a high waist. Skinnies enlarge your bum even more. If you want to flatter your appearance go for long pockets.
Pear shaped bottom
After one or more children, you may be pear shaped. Opt for a V-fit to lift the bum, high pockets and normal or slightly high waist. Thin legs can wear skinnies. Wide thighs or short legs should opt for a straight leg. Baggy models should be avoided as they risk reinforcing your pear shape.
Round or muscular bottom
Whether you’ve worked out to have a rounder more muscled bum or have been graced with one from birth, you're lucky. Most jeans will fit, even the baggy model! Feel free to indulge in all sorts of models, shapes and colours.
