SHOP NOW: Jeans, £112, ASOS (opens in new tab)

Not just the go-to brand for underwear, Spanx has been slowly expanding their clothing line – and it now includes flattering jeans. Their comfortable, pull-on fit puts them somewhere between shaping jeans and leggings. They even feature the same stomach-smoothing technology as a pair of their famous pants.

SHOP NOW: Jeans, £45, Next (opens in new tab)

Next’s range of “lift, slim and shape” jeans has been designed with cleverly hidden support, working hard to sculpt your middle, while the high waistband contours your shape. Available in a range of colours and shapes, there’s pretty much a style for everyone. We love the versatility of the black bootcut jeans.

4. Shape & Sculpt at JD Williams


RRP: £39.00
Sizes: 10-32

SHOP NOW: Jeans, £39, JD Williams (opens in new tab)

We’ve long been a fan of JD Williams’ work, but these flattering jeans are a real game-changer. Multidirectional stretch denim works with your curves (not against them) to flatter and enhance your shape. Meanwhile, the high waist pulls you in around the middle without discomfort, and the hidden “Magisculpt control panel” and intelligent bottom-lifting seams flatten and lift in all the right places. They’re pretty much the miracle we’ve all been waiting for. Some reviewers found the sizing small, so you may want to size up on these.
