Jeans….Denim….the real deal
During Winter most clients talk to me about JEANS. Jeans are just such a versatile wardrobe essential and with so many styles out there, it’s great to know what works and what doesn’t for your shape. There are jeans to shape your butt, smooth your tummy, fit your waist & slim your legs plus more!!!
Some of the comments about jeans I get from my clients…
What jeans will suit me?
I love jeans & I wear them with everything!
I have that problem where jeans are gaping at the back?
All I wear is jeans and tops?
Where can I find jeans to suit me?
Are they always so uncomfortable?
I have listed some very comfortable styles of jeans below that seem to suit MOST clients with these body shapes. There may be some tweaking for you but give these a go!
– Jeans with softer stretch waistbands are GREAT for tummies
– Higher rise styles are best to conceal tummies and give a smooth layering shape
– Jeans with washes & distressing detail on legs to take the focus off tummies
