Many women tell me that they do not want to wear jeans anymore because they feel that they don’t look good in them. I always ask what brand and style of jean they are wearing because denim has come a long way in the past few years and there is no reason why every woman can’t find a jean that fits! There are plenty of slimming jeans on the market, it just takes some patience to wade through all of the choices in fits, washes and design in jeans for women.

There are three main areas to keep in mind when you are buying that perfect fitting jean.
#1: It is all about fit and how the jeans flatter your curves. Do find a jean with some stretch. You may need to actually go down a size so that your jeans do not become baggy or sloppy looking by day’s end. Utilize technology and consider your silhouette when selecting the right pair of jeans. There are many technological advances in denim that will provide you with assistance to flatter your curves! For example, NYDJ jeans features a lift tuck technology that makes you look and feel a size smaller.
#2: The cut of the jean is also very important and offers some options to accentuate your best features or minimize an area where you do not want to call attention. Wide leg jeans can balance out a larger bust so that you do not appear to be top-heavy. If you carry your weight in the middle, find a jean with a wider waistband. If you have fuller legs and thighs, try a trouser jean, which will stay right below the waist and provide you with a polished and professional look.
#3: Do you remember lying down on the bed to get your jeans on? How uncomfortable was that? Quality and Comfort go hand-in-hand when you are choosing the right pair of jeans. Keep in mind that the right pair of jeans will slim the tummy, contour the hips and lift the butt without feeling as though you are stuffed into your jeans.
Don’t be afraid to try on different pairs, ask questions of the sales staff, and pretty soon you will be Rockin’ those Denim Jeans!
