What do you look for in a pair of jeans? More than likely you are looking for a pair of jeans that fit, are in style and most importantly, show off that awesome runners butt. To get started you need to know your lower body measurements. Checkout this awesome guide on eBay, or the chart below for accurate measurement.
Now, that you have your measurements, let’s review different fit styles. Disclaimer- each brand of jeans will fit differently, so with that said here are the most common fits:
Boot Cut – Wider from the knee down, fits tight around the hips and thighs.
Low Rise – Sits relativity low, or below the hips (2-3 inches) lower than the bellow button.
Relaxed – Gives you more room around the hips and thighs. Could be worn as a baggy style.
Straight – Consistent width from the knee to the hem.
Skinny -Very tight fit around the hips and thighs, continuing down to the leg opening, which is normally small.
Slim – Snug fit around the butt and thigh. Leg opening varies between a skinny and boot cut jean.
Finally, you need to decide on brand. Each brand of jeans will fit different, here are my top 4 for women and men- maximizing style and fit.
