  • Larger Bust.
  • Broader Shoulders.
  • Narrower Hips
  • Less Defined Waist

Apply some basic guidelines when shopping for jeans to flatter your Apple shape.

Buy jeans that have a flat front and with a rise that is lower than your natural waist, avoid tucks and button up jeans as they will add bulk onto your tummy area.

Boot cut jeans can be an excellent choice as the wider leg can draw the eye down from the waist and create a balanced look.

Apples can have the pick when it comes to denim jean colours! Choosing jeans that are of lighter shades are great as they will add shape to your thighs.

  • Wider hips and thighs
  • Narrower shoulders
  • Wider bottom.
  • Smaller bust

Pears usually get frustrated when trying on jeans, for one.

Avoid light, paler and ‘washed look’ jeans that may have the worn look around the upper leg and body section as this will draw the eye to this area. Choose darker shades of denim that will give more of a slimming effect. Darker blues, dark greys, blacks and browns are the best shades to work with and will still give you that classical denim jeans look. Jeans with fading below the knee can also work well for you.

The shape and cut of the jeans is important and the golden rule is to reduce the emphasis from your hips, thigh area and butt.

Hipster jeans will help you avoid that gaping waist scenario while low-rise jeans can make your bottom look smaller.

The pockets at the back of your jeans can create an appearance of enlarging the bottom area and more so if there is detail on back pockets such as beading, embroidery or lacing. Pocket size and design should be either kept to a minimum.

Jeans Styles for Hourglass Shaped Women:

The main traits of your Hourglass shaped body are:


  • Bust and hips nearly the same size.
  • Well defined waist – 9″ or more smaller than bust.
  • Full Bust.
  • Shapely Legs.

Hourglass figures should ideally wear jeans that have a smaller cut waist, this will help you achieve that beautifully fitted look from waist to hips.

With fitting in mind stretch denim jeans can be the perfect choice and will give you movement and comfort for your shapely figure without having a bulky or tight look.

To balance out your hips choose jeans that have a slightly flared, wide leg or boot cut. Tailored jeans can make your legs appear longer and lift your bottom especially if worn with heals.

Stay away from belts or detailing such as pockets around the hips or bum, it will just add bulk. If your one of the cuddlier hour glasses out there opt for darker colour jeans, they will slim you down.

  • Narrower Hips
  • Small Bust

You really shouldn’t have any problems with jeans, don’t you? With your slim hips, any kind of jeans look good on you.

Low rise jeans with wide waistbands (preferable of thicker material) that fall on the fullest part of your hips will add a few centimeters. Detailing on the hips and bum will also help to broaden those slender hips.

Beware of jeans that sit on your waist they just show off the fact that there is not much of a waist there. Always try and opt for low rise jeans and add a belt to accessorize which will add width to your hips.

The darker jeans are obviously we all know the more slimming they are. Luckily for you you’ve been blessed with a slender frame and can get away with wearing any colour of jeans teamed up with jut about anything.
