Shopping for jeans can become stressful, especially if you do not have the perfect body. Trying on jeans all day at the store can become tiresome and sometimes even a little depressing. Knowing what brands of jeans work well with your body type will save you the frustration of trying to find the right jeans.

Pear Shape

Typically, pear shaped women have a defined waist, curvy hips, and full thighs. The pear shape is thought to be the most common shape of all women. Since the bottom half of the body is normally wider than the top you will want to find jeans that make the top half of your body look a little wider. Enhancing your top half will give your body the look of being balanced.

When shopping for jeans to compliment your pear shape you should consider these brands:

7 For All Mankind
AppleBottom Jeans
Banana Republic
Citizens of Humanity

Apple Shape

An apple shaped woman normally has a wider waist, a flat rear end, and shapely legs. When dressing your apple shape you should try to lengthen the torso and make your waist appear smaller. The brands that are great for apple shaped women are:

J Brand
Joe’s Jeans
Lucky Brand
True Religion

These are all great jeans that come in a variety of styles. They are great for apple shaped women because they have more room in the middle and give your rear end a little more shape.

Hourglass Shape

If you are one of the few lucky women who have an hourglass shape then count yourself lucky! Very few women have the beautiful hourglass shape. Usually when you are shopping for jeans you are trying to balance areas of your body that are not proportioned with the rest of your body. This is not the case with the hourglass shape. However, what we do want to do is bring attention to your well-defined waist and show off your curves. There are several brands of jeans that will help you do this.
