Jeans for FULL ROUNDED Body Type

If you aren't sure if this is your body type, visit: Identify Your Body Type to find out. This is part of a series for finding the right jeans for your body type compliments of http://www.jeans-and-accessories.com/, which is the source of my information.



Goal:
To take focus away from the hip, thigh and bottom area. Elongate, do not cut in half.


Do's:

  • Boot-cut jeans give a long and lean look, which is flattering to most women
  • Darker color womens designer jeans
  • Look for pants that fit your waist and are relaxed in the hip and thigh areas without adding bulk
  • Look for jeans with the seam closer to front, this gives the impression of thinner thighs
  • Try medium to high rise, but stay at least one inch below your belly button
  • Wide waistbands can be very helpful in holding back your belly
  • Look for styles that contour, and soften your outline
  • Diagonal front pockets also have a slimming effect
  • Look for large loosely spaced pockets
  • Monochromatic dressing should add to the slimming effect

Don'ts:

  • Pleats widen the look of hips and thighs, so avoid them
  • Avoid womens designer jeans that are tapered or ultra-tapered legs, as they call attention to the hips and thighs
  • I shouldn't have to even mention capris
  • Avoid saggy or baggy pants, especially in the rear end
  • Never use cuffs
  • Avoid jeans with small pockets.
  • Avoid jeans that are tight in the knees
  • Avoid distressed jeans with faded bottoms and thighs no matter how fashionable
  • Avoid styles that hug your body.
  • Don’t wear belts too tight
  • Avoid high waisted womens designer jeans, they will make your butt look huge
  • No "whiskers" in the front, they will make your hips look wider

Accessories:

  • Tops should emphasize long-line (Never wear a jacket that end at the butt)
  • No cropped tops
  • V necklines
  • Jackets should be slightly fitted, shaped
  • Handbags should be at hip level, preferably lower
  • Attract attention to your neck and bust
  • Avoid fitted tops and wide lapels
  • Avoid a contrasting hip line (different color belt)
  • Use narrow belts, same color as your top to elongate the torso,or same color as your pants, to elongate the lower body
  • Avoid wide collars and lapels
  • Use small scale patterns on tops, avoid animal and large prints
  • Avoid horizontal features, emphasize verticality
  • Use light accessories and details
