tips on choosing a pair of jeans for your body type.

February 23, 2013

Hey guys! This post is going to help you decide what pair of pants are right for you!

Finding the right pair of jeans can be frustrating, especially with the various cuts and styles available in the market. You have to think about the fit, style and length which only add to your frustration. However, once you spot a great pair of quality jeans such as AG clothing, you will love to wear them all day long! Following are some of the useful tips in choosing a pair of jeans for your body type. 

Evaluate your body type

First and foremost, find out the type of your body: are you curvy or slim? This will help you to know what type of jeans you need to look for. Once you determine your type of body, it will help you find a perfect match.

It's all about pockets 

If you have a smaller butt (like me!), select a pair with small pockets or the one that comes with flaps for adding bulk to your back side. Your rear-view will look smaller with over-sized pockets. On the other hand, if you have more fat on your trunk, avoid jeans that feature too many details and elaborations such as embroidery or other excess decorations on back pockets. It is a prudent idea to go for jeans with medium sized pockets. Similarly, stay away from buying a pair that has no pockets at all as they will only make your butt appear much bigger than it is. 

Tightness of the jeans 

Avoid skinnies if you have wide hips. Instead, go for boot leg pairs that will balance your body curves. Picking a pair of flare jeans is another good idea. To ensure slimming effect, choose a dark rinse pair with a slight inside fade. Even if you are thin, as a thumb rule, select the pair which is neither too loose nor too tight. 

Pick a suitable yoke to enhance your body 

The yoke is the topmost part of the jeans which is visible at the back. The look and fit of your jeans largely depends on the curve of the yoke seam. For instance, a yoke seam that curves upwards from hips will make your bottom appear larger, whereas a flat yoke gives the illusion of a wider hip. A wider yoke will fit better, if you are on a larger side. However, a "V" shaped yoke is a perfect fit for most types of body figure. It flatters all types of body and fits well. If you are unsure about the right yoke, opt for this type of yoke. 

Find a perfect fit

The pair must fit snug for your particular body type. You should feel comfortable wearing them while moving. While fitting jeans on your body, walk around wearing them and sit down to find out whether the pair reveals your underwear! If you don't wish to show your granny panties to the world, avoid low-rise jeans. A perfect fit is the one in which you feel comfortable without showing your underwear or your body shape. 

Choosing the right pair of jeans can be tricky. However, you can ease the selection process by following these smart and handy tips targeted for your body type. Do your homework properly, and shop for a suitable pair of quality jeans such as AG clothing, that are in line with your budget and requirements!

Here are two of my favorite pairs:




  1. Nice post :D you can really get lost in jeans shapes sometimes. at least I can..

  2. I find myself hiding in skirts and dresses most of the time. I don't like my legs very much, and try to avoid pants. It is a really good thing I live somewhere warm.
