Fabulous jeans for hourglass shapes

Denim is a wardrobe essential for almost every woman. Check out these tips to find the best denim jeans for your hourglass figure.

Shopping for jeans doesn't have to be difficult -- just consider your body type when you head to the store. Your jeans should hide your figure flaws while accentuating your assets. Women with an hourglass figure have a proportional upper and lower body, along with a slim waist. This sexy, curvy figure is often considered the ideal body type.

Skinny jeans

If you want to really flaunt your curves, show them off in a pair of skinny jeans. Remember, though: Skinny jeans shouldn't be so tight that they bind you. If you're a little on the heavy side, you might prefer a slim, straight-leg jean rather than an actual skinny jean.

    Flared jeans

    Go retro with a pair of dark denim flared jeans. Flares are trendy right now and can offer nice balance to a curvy figure. For casual Fridays at the office, consider trouser jeans with a wide leg -- which will emphasize your slender waistline.

    Styles to avoid

      Whatever you do, don't try to hide your curves in baggy jeans. Many women who are carrying a few extra pounds have a tendency to dress in oversized clothes. This is actually counter-productive -- it won't disguise your weight, and can even make you look heavier than you really are, so wear jeans that fit. And if you want to look a bit smaller, pick dark wash or black jeans and avoid jeans with small pockets -- they make your butt look big.
