Those of us with curvy bodies; small waist and slightly larger thighs or big round bottom have had our challenges finding jeans that curve and mold to our curvy and curvaceous shapes.
Before the pandemic I decided to shop a discount store to see the type of jeans and how they fit my curvy body. I knew they would have a variety of jeans from different designers and wanted to see how they compared to the jeans that we carry at Revenge Fashion Boutique.
When your measurements are 36-27-42 it can be extremely frustrating getting just the right fit. I probably tried on 10 pairs of jeans and was exhausted by the end of trying on all those different styles.
Let's face it, most jeans, are made for those slender figures that are more of a "boyish" type body with no hips or butt and straight back with no curvature. If you have a slightly curved back (super sexy), a small waist and larger hips these jeans are not going to fit right.
Normally a "boyfriend" jean will not have stretch which means they will gap in the waist while being extra tight in the thighs, if you can even get them over your thighs. Other jeans that did fit made my bottom look flat. To fix this problem, look for jeans that have back pockets as they will make your bottom look plump.
Skinny jeans are extremely popular, fitting tighter at the ankle. But again, you want to make sure they have some sort of stretch or spandex so they fit properly in the waist and hips.
If you tend to have larger thighs or wider hips, skinny jeans may make your hips look even larger. To counteract this problem, choose a flared or boot cut jean as they will create an elongated, overall slenderizing look.
Denim skirts are another option and can pose the same problems with having a large gap in the waist while fitting extra tight in the hips. To fix this problem, only buy jean skirts that offer stretch (spandex), especially if you have a curve to your back.
If your back doesn't have a curve then this may not be a problem, but could be challenging if you tend to have a rounder stomach. Also, mini skirts above the knee, that have a more boxy or straight shape do not normally flatter someone with short thick legs.
A flared A-line skirt that falls below the knee for work, will flatter best. And, if you prefer a sexy look and want to show off your curves, then consider a denim pencil skirt. These are a wardrobe staple for me.
I love that you can dress them up with pumps or a sandal or wear them casually with a fitted tee and espadrilles or platform wedge sneakers. And, if they have spandex, they will fit any curvy or curvaceous body shape beautifully.
Don't be afraid to buy denim online either. If you see that the jeans offer stretch, then chances are, they will provide a great fit. This week we have ramped up our denim collection by adding denim skirts with lace, skinny jeans with embroidered daises, fringe hem jeans, button detail flared jeans and even raw hem fringe shorts which look great with cowboy boots. (Hello, Nashville)!
You can never go wrong with denim in any style, and for all seasons. Denim jackets and lightweight finely woven denim tops also work well. We have even added a sexy, backless, stretch curvaceous (plus size) jumpsuit that will "wow" your date!
And, if you're still unsure of the fit, even with stretch, then be on the lookout for our "try before you buy" program rolling out soon.
