Since I won’t have a chance to post my outfit until I get home late tonight, I decided to talk about how buy jeans for “curvy” gals, or girls like me, who have a smaller waist, and larger (proportionally) hips and thighs.
There are definitely great options out there, and knowing what cuts work best for you avoid the extra cost of going to a tailor (which I usually have to do for my skinny jeans that are more difficult to find in the “curvy” cuts).
Low Price Point:
Medium Price Point:
I also haven’t worn them, but Levi’s has a great new focus on fit, and a great curve line of denim. For me, the supreme curve or bold curve would be ideal. Levi’s are also available at JCPenny, Kohl’s, Macy’s, and Sears. Price point is between $50-$80 depending on cut.
High/Designer Price Point:
I personally prefer to buy higher end denim on sale. I get the fabulous fit and well-constructed product, at a price that doesn’t make me want to cry. Nordstrom sales, the Nordstrom Rack, Amazon, and 6pm are some of the many options out there. It’s also great to do a price compare on a site like Bing Shopping or ShopStyle.
The True Religion Becky jeans are one of my favorites. They really do make your behind look amazing, and they fit like a glove around my curves. They can be on the pricier side, but I’ve found them on sale, and may have purchased at least one pair for full price. I’ve found True Religions everywhere from Nordstrom, to Neiman Marcus, to Zappos and Amazon.
I’m also quite obsessed with Joe’s Honey cut. In general, Joe’s jeans tend to work great for me, but the Honey cut is definitely the ideal. Joe’s can also be found at a variety of stores, and watching for sales is key.
Skinny jeans can be tough. The first option is looking for skinny jeans in the same cuts as I mentioned above. However, I’ve found that it can be harder to find, and you don’t get options like the trendy colored denim.
For me, I’ve found two options that tend to fit well.
