We’ve all been there
Shopping for jeans can be the worst if you don’t know where to start. I don’t think there is anything more painful then trying on pair after pair of jeans and cringing every time you look in the mirror. For me, finding the right styles for my body only became more challenging after having babies (I’m sure many moms can attest to this.) But, I promise, once you find flattering denim for your body it will become a staple in your closet.
3 Tips to finding a flattering pair of jeans:
- Denim isn’t something you want to cut corners on. By spending a little more on a quality pair of jeans they will last you longer.
- Take the size you think you are and one size up of the same style of denim to try on at the same time. Mentally, it’s much easier to grab a smaller size later if needed.
- Be honest with yourself. Don’t buy a size because you feel bad about sizing up. You’ll be uncomfortable, wear the jeans less (if at all) and they probably don’t look as good as the size up would have. I have to remind myself of this all the time… No one else will ever see the size tag inside your jeans!
The correct length of any jean style is important, but especially for skinny jeans. Skinny jeans will make your legs look longer if at the correct length. They should hit right at your ankle, hem or cuffed. If they are scrunched around your calves or ankles they are too long and do not fit properly.
They are supposed to be loose-fitting through the thigh, depending on your footwear the hem/cuff should hit slightly above your ankle. Pair the boyfriend style denim with a loose fitting tee side tucked in your jeans for the perfect casual look.

These jeans are so easy to dress up or down. They go with a pair of sneakers or pumps!
My personal favorite! It helps get rid of “mummy tummy” and conceals any muffin top troubles.
The Glass slipper of jeans
It’s kind of like cinderella’s glass slipper, when you find a pair you love you’ll just know. You button those babies, turn around to look in the mirror and you think, “Golly gee dang it! My ass does look amazing! Jean shopping isn’t so bad after all.”
