Pears usually get frustrated when trying on jeans. Here’s a scenario: so you see these really fiercely fab jeans in the store and they’re on sale. You take them off the rack and try them on. You have to practically squeeze your hips into them and when you finally have them on, there’s a gaping space along the waist. Heart-breaker, huh?
Jeans Styles for the Pear Figure
But really, with a lot of pear shaped real women out there, why don’t the designers and manufacturers come up with a pair of jeans for the Pears? (Baby Spice of the Spice Girls and Kate Winslet the actress are Pears themselves.) But well, until they’ve caught on, we better work on with what’s available to us at the moment.
So, let’s start with the best jean styles for our booty-licious Jeans for Pears:
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.
Boot cut jeans is your best choice, the gentle widening of the boot cut below the knee will help balance out the heavier hips and thighs as the added width to the lower part of you leg will make your hips and thigh area naturally look smaller. Don’t confuse boot cut with wide leg jeans though, the wider leg jeans will not be flattering and can make you look huge from the waist down to your feet.
Straight leg jeans can also be a good option, depending on your hip size. Wearing straight leg jeans with higher heels is a good tip as this will lengthen your look and have an added benefit of visually reducing the hip area too.
Mid rise jeans will help you avoid that gaping waist scenario while low-rise jeans can make your bottom look smaller.
When shopping for jeans be also aware of pockets and any design detail on the body area of the jeans. 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.
Buttons, zips and fastenings on jeans need to be neat and minimal, avoid any bulky side pockets or side button detail.
Best Denim Colour for Pear Shape Figure
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.
Finding the right pair of jeans will be an asset to your wardrobe and help you feel and look fabulous. Mix and match tops, T-shirts, shoes and boots with your jeans can give you a look for every occasion.
