Not only do these slimming jeans work for any occasion, they can also work their magic on your figure, too – helping to sculpt, lift and enhance, no effort required.
Denim is an everyday staple, so it’s important to get that perfect fit. The best jeans are ones that last wash after wash, without any sag. Luckily, technology has come a long way and the high street is jam-packed full of styles that offer contouring as well as comfort.
Style is key, too, and it’s not just your classic skinny jean that can flatter your figure. Wide-leg jeans can help lengthen legs, while a bootcut or kick-flare can balance out hips and thighs. Cropped jeans are great for petites, while dark washes are flattering all-round. Everybody is different, so it’s all about choosing the right style for you.
How to get the perfect fitting slimming jeans
Unfortunately, sizes can vary from store to store, making shopping for slimming jeans even more stressful. It may sound obvious, but the best thing to do is to order multiple sizes and be prepared to do the returns. Experiment with different sizes, styles and washes, not just your usual go-to. You never know what new styles you might discover, so it’s a good idea to keep an open mind.
When trying on, make sure you put on a whole outfit to see how the jeans work with your favourite tops and shoes. You want your jeans to be versatile, so see how they look with trainers and heels as well as blouses and knitwear.
