Finding the Perfect Pair of Great Fitting Jeans

Guest Author - Samantha Jackson

Looking for a new pair of jeans can be daunting. You want a pair that fits great, is slimming and gives you a nice clean look. If youíre like most women, thereís little doubt you have committed yourself to hours of shopping and while some women can pick out a new skirt or dress in ten minutes or less, finding the perfect pair of jeans is virtually an art form. With all the styles, shapes and materials on the market today, finding the perfect fit doesnít need to be overwhelming.

Wearing a pair of jeans that don't fit properly tends to make you uncomfortable as well as self conscious. Jeans have become so accepted that you can dress them up for a night out or dress them down for a day in the park. So, finding the perfect pair is essential.

You want a pair that fits snugly but are not so tight that every bump and crevice is exposed. When you begin your search take a look at the material. Spandex or Lycra will give you extra support creating a smoother looking silhouette and will help reshape your rear.

When you try jeans on give extra consideration to the waistband. It should sit just under your belly button and have some give to it. You want a little extra support but you donít want to get that muffin top affect, feel like you canít breathe or wind up with band imprints at the end of the day.

If you happen to be small in stature, stay away from skinny jeans that are overly tight. Tight skinny jeans will only make your middle section look broader and make you appear shorter overall.

Where the pockets are located and how they are situated is also key. Some styles have pockets that are so long they extend past your butt. While a tiny percentage of people can get away with this style, most end up with hind ends that look flat and shapeless.

To really accentuate your backside look for jeans with pocket ends that are flush with where your thigh begins. Stick with a dark or light wash color. This will give you a clean look and make you appear somewhat slimmer.

Jeans that have fading, excessive stitching or other adornments cause the eye to stop in some unflattering places. Washed jeans give the eye a clean and simple line to follow which tricks the mind into thinking slimmer.

Also, keep in mind that darker colors add to the slimming effect. But, the most important way to find a great pair of jeans is to try them on and take a look in the mirror. With great fitting jeans you will know when you have found the right pair.
