GA jeans are in fact for sizes Uk- 4- 18 and the larger sizes are available in Selfridges too. I have the same problem with the gap in the waist at the back to get them to fit in the hips. Doubles the cost of the jeans, but at least I get something that fits. This post was inspired by an email from a reader with a curvy body shape questioning why an hourglass was included in the pear shape category on the ilovejeans. Let me know how you get on, but if you need more help then fill out my questionnaire for more hands on guidence.
Finding a style that fits on the waist and on the hips is the difficulty. Choose a higher rise jean. The rise is the measurement from the top of the waistband down to the bottom of the crotch seam. Find the best rise for you: This will give you the measurement of the rise that will be comfortable for you. Take this shopping with you and use it as a guide when picking out jeans to try on. This is important for comfort and for keeping the shape.
Choose a wider waistband. Often a wider waistband sits higher on the back, so no knickers showing. Look to balance out your curves. When choosing a leg shape opt for a boot cut , wide leg or kick flare to balance out your curves.
A mix of Great fashion jeans and everyday basic denim. Sizes run large, order one size down. Sizes 00 to plus size 24! Love this brand for such a wide size range. My go to favorite was Gap curvy boot cut size 6 until they discontinued them.
I have the typical problem with the gape at the back, not enough room in the butt making my butt look flat , etc. Hi Beth, Good to hear from you! Good Luck, please visit again soon x. I wear a 16 and have large thighs, jeans wear out fast for me. No matter what I do, the jeans tends to thin out and break, so, I throw them away or donate. I tried 16 misses and 18 misses; 18 misses is too big and 16 misses is OK, but hug in the thigh.
Hi, Sweet Angel Kitty cute name. I see your point and would like to know which brand of jean you are wearing with stretch. Thanks so much for your comment and let me know how you get on. Waist gap is a big issue. It seems every time I find a Jean or denim Capri that fits well it is discontinued by the time I want to buy again. I prefer dark denim. I am particularly interested in denim capris as I prefer them to shorts and I live at the southernmost edge of the US so it is very hot.
Good Legs Crop Skinny are a high rise cropped skinny that are made for the petite,curvy,plus size. Both retailers ship worldwide and I believe offer free returns. Laurie I hope that helps, let me know how you get on. Hi Daisy, Thanks for your comment. Good American jeans are made with curvy women with big bottoms in mind. My other favorite curvy jeans brand is PZI Jeans , you can shop on all the jeans that come in a short leg and size 12 here. They offers some good deals which are worth checking out.
I have just published a Best Sellers post you may find interesting too. Do you have a recommendation for some shorts that are loose on my big thighs, but will fit my tiny waist.?
Hi Jan, Thanks for your comment, I have just posted up Short Notice a blog post with 30 shorts, you may want to have a look. Also have a look at these stripe, linen shorts and these khaki tie waist shorts from Next. Love this blog post! I have an hour glass figure and my waist is I think need jeans with a long zip so they open up wide enough for my thighs and hips.
I would be so grateful if you had any advice! Well done you for the massive weight loss! GA jeans are in fact for sizes Uk- 4- 18 and the larger sizes are available in Selfridges too. Which I think is really brilliant to get them stocked there. They do the skinny high rise jeans and also the looser high-rise boyfriend styles too.
Another brand that caters for curvy is True Religion and available online or in store in London. I hope that has helped, thanks for your comment and let me know how you get on xx Sam xx.
I have broad shoulders, small bust, definitely have a muffin top and bigger in the hips than the waist. I have the same problem with the gap in the waist at the back to get them to fit in the hips.
Thanks for the comment, even though your advertising! Actually i am short, with big thighs,big butt with slight tummy. Hi Sarvani, thanks for your comment. Now the rule of thumb when it comes to a curvy body shape is to balance the hips with a flare.
Take a look at the PZI Riley Boot-cut in a short leg this brand is brilliant for women with curves and a butt. Also the Kaylee distressed straight leg in short is another good style. Another good brand for curvy women. Please let me know how you get on! Hi Brooke, Good to hear from you! A wide waistband with double button fastening sounds like it could be a good one for you. Check out these styles: Or Parker Smith Kam Skinny , has a mid -rise.
Let me know how you get on. Thank you in advance! Hi Lisa, Just published a post on how to find the perfect jean jacket for your body shape. I didnt see any of the models that fit my criteria in the jean department.
So no this page was not helpful.. So it would be great if you could send me a photo of yourself so I can tailor my answers specifically for you. They are a little pricey, but the thick fabric makes them very slimming and they don't fade or stretch. Also, I'm very tall 5'11" so I like that they are always long enough and proportionate for my body. They are definitely an investment worth making.
But I found them! These Boden jeans have great stretch without losing shape , they come in long amen! I pretty much wear them all week. I have hips but skinny legs and this pair tightens up on my calves good and has room to give in the waist also good. My curvy, 5-footinch body looks best in high-waisted styles and these are the perfect height.
They are comfortable and flattering and super stretchy. The slight stretch also works wonders on days when you just want to feel comfy. Just because they give a little doesn't mean they'll completely lose their shape after a couple wears. I have thick thighs, wide hips and a big butt so I often have a problem finding jeans that don't gap, don't cut off my circulation, and don't over-emphasize my already pronounced features.
I'm tall and thin, but they hug me in all the right places and help to create the illusion of killer curves.
