THE BEST DENIM FOR YOUR BODY TYPE, ACCORDING TO JANICE

Finding clothes that fit is hard, but finding denim that fits is a feat that goes beyond any other. Just because you like how a pair might look on the model, doesn’t mean that it’s the right fit for you, as it really all depends on your body type. So what fits are right for your figure? Today, we’re turning to our VP of Design and expert on all-things denim, Janice, to break all of our fits down by body type and share what silhouettes, styles and leg openings will really flatter you the most.

ATHLETIC

“If you’re pretty straight from waist to hip and have more of an athletic shape, you want a fit that complements that. We designed Aiko and Mazy specifically for those body types—for women who don’t have a lot of curve between their waist and hips. This body type can pull off pretty much every leg opening, so have some fun and experiment to see which one you like best.”

CURVY

“If you’ve got a true hourglass shape, where your waist is significantly smaller than your hips, that’s where our curvy fits come in. These draw attention to the smallest part of your body—your waist, and have a contoured waistband so they never gap. As far as silhouettes go, a kick crop or slim bootcut really balances and flatters your shape. One more thing about curvy body types—size does not matter! So many people associate ‘curvy’ with ‘plus size’ but whether are a 24 or 16, you can still have a curvy body type. It all just depends on your waist to hip ratio.”

PEAR

“Okay, so you’re curvy, but not quite an hourglass, because your waist is a bit fuller. If that’s your story, then Elyse is your fit. Elyse has a curvy fit with a more relaxed waistband, giving you a little extra room around your midsection and preventing that dreaded muffin top.”

PETITE

“If you’re under 5’3”, you probably want a jean that makes you look taller and elongates your legs. Go for something with a high rise and cropped inseam. Our cropped inseams measure 25”, which hits at the perfect ankle length for shorter figures.”

TALL

“If you’ve got model-long limbs, you need a length that’s going to accommodate that and not hit at an awkward spot. That’s why we designed longer lengths in certain styles, specifically made for taller figures with 34-35” inseams that’ll hit exactly where their supposed to.”
