Finding the perfect fit for jeans has become a (sometimes frustrating) mission for many women. It’s been compared to finding the perfect and most comfortable bra – it has to fit perfectly, hide one’s flaws, and accentuate out the positives. It sounds like such a high call right? It really isn’t, as long as you know your body type and have the confidence to pull it off. Confidence is the main key.
Here are some types of denim jeans and what body type it is best for:
- 1. Skinny Jeans.

Skinnies are the best for tucking into boots.
