Find your jeans size – some advice
When trying on jeans, pay attention to how they fit in the waist, hips, thighs, and legs. Jeans should fit comfortably without being too tight or too loose. Check for any bulging or sagging in the crotch or waistband.
Knowing your body type is essential when it comes to finding the right fit. Some common body types include apple, pear, hourglass, and straight. Each body type has different areas to focus on when finding the right fit.
Consider the rise – the distance between the crotch and the waistband – when choosing your jeans. High-rise jeans sit above the natural waistline, mid-rise jeans sit at the waistline, and low-rise jeans sit below the waistline.
The fabric is also an factor to consider. Stretch denim can be more comfortable and forgiving, while non-stretch denim can be more durable and offer a more classic look. Consider the fabric when choosing your jeans, as it can affect the fit and comfort.
Don’t be afraid to try different styles to see which one works best for your body type. Some popular styles include skinny, straight-leg, bootcut, and flare.
Don’t forget about alterations: If you find a pair of jeans that fits well but needs a little tweaking, consider getting them altered. A tailor can hem the length or take in the waist to create a custom fit.
