                       Women often find it difficult to find a style of denim jeans that flatters their
 extra-long                                                                                                proportions

 straight cut                                                                                              silhouette

 wide waistband                                                                                            torso

                       If you are bottom-heavy, minimize curvy hips with boot cut jeans.

                       If you are thick-waisted, a wide waistband will contain that muffin top.

                       If you are petite, choose jeans with a straight cut and a close fit.

                       If you choose dark-wash jeans, you will look leaner.

                       If you want to draw attention away from your waist, choose a trouser style, which is fuller at the
                       ankles.

                       If you wear the trouser style, the widest part of your silhouette will not be at the waist.

                       If you are petite, do not choose extra-long jeans. They can throw off your

                       proportions.

                       If you are petite, choose an ankle-length cut.

                       If a petite woman wears ankle-length jeans, she appears taller.

                       If you have a pear-shaped torso, choose jeans with large back pockets.

                       If a you have a bottom-heavy shape, do not wear jeans with small back pockets. The small pockets
                       make the lower half of the torso appear larger.
