As far as timeless wardrobe staples go, jeans are pretty much a classic capsule wardrobe piece that can stand the test of time as trends and fashion change. Buying jeans is not a simple task; there’s so much to consider – for example your budget and your body shape. If you’re struggling to find the perfect pair of denim jeans to suit you, then read on for a guide to finding the perfect jeans fit from ladies plus size fashion retailer, Curvissa:


Jeans - finding the right fit



Bootleg jeans are the classic denim fit. They are great if you’re a pear shape or an hourglass – the flare leg will balance your curves and nip in at the waist showing off your fabulous silhouette. A belt will help enhance this so opt for a bright coloured accessory which will draw the eyes to your clinched waist.

Wide-legged jeans are magic in that they suit every shape – if you’re long and leggy then they look fantastic in a high waist style, creating soft feminine curves on your athletic figure. If you’re looking for jeans to flatter a fuller figure, then wide-legged jeans are great – you won’t appear top heavy as the straight, baggy cut of these jeans will balance out your figure just gorgeously. Check out plus size clothing from Curvissa, they have a great range of jeans to suit the fuller figured lady!

High-waisted denim jeans are bang on trend right now and are fantastic for hiding any potential problem areas around the middle, so ladies, if you’re looking for the ultimate tummy-smoother then high-waist jeans are for you! They’ll give your figure a gorgeous hourglass shape which will make such a statement.

Black denim
Black denim and dark wash jeans are great for creating more dressy attire, so if you’re in need of outfit inspiration for dinner with the girls, or a first date then these are the bottoms for you! The dark colour will look great teamed with a dressy top, and will create a svelte silhouette. Alternatively, spice things up a bit with bright coloured jeans, such as raspberry, white and mint green. These colours will add a refreshing twist to your outfit, so embrace their bold colour and dare to dress loud!

Skinny fit
Skinny fit jeans are great teamed with heels for a casual, yet smart approach. If you’re on the short side, opt for a jean that has a seam stitched along the front of the leg – this will elongate your leg, making your appear taller.

Boyfriend fit
Boyfriend jeans are the ultimate fit if you’re looking for casual, comfy denim that won’t make you look frumpy. Their baggy leg is really flattering on most shapes, because it can accommodate all leg sizes and keep you looking fashionable. When it comes to jeans second-best really isn’t an option – you really need to find the fit that suits you best to ensure comfort and optimum style. Hopefully this guide has helped you decipher what style would best fit you, so you can look delightful in denim no matter your shape or size!
