Which jeans are right for you?

Which jeans are right for you?

Buying jeans can be particularly difficult if you don't know which cut suits your figure. Indeed, the stiffness of the fabric and the style of the jeans are all elements to be taken into account when making the right choice from the plethora of models available. Whether flare, slim, bootcut or high-waisted, choosing a pair of jeans that really suits your body shape is no easy task. Not sure where to start? Follow our comprehensive guide to get you started on this complex quest.

How to know your morphology?

Understanding your body type is undoubtedly the first crucial step in the search for the perfect pair of jeans.

  • A-shape morphology: This morphology is also known as "triangle morphology". The hips are larger than the shoulders and waist. The waist is not very pronounced. A triangle silhouette is identified when the pant size is larger than the jacket size.
  • V-shape morphology: In this type of morphology, the shoulders are wider than the waist and hips, the legs are slender, and the waist is not very pronounced. People with this morphology often have a rather sporty figure.
  • X-shaped morphology: Your waist is very pronounced, and your shoulders and hips have similar measurements. This is the feminine morphology par excellence!
  • The H-shape: Your shoulders, chest and hips are virtually aligned on a single line on either side of your body. Your waist is very slightly marked.
  • The 8-shape morphology: Although it shares many features with the X-shape morphology, one characteristic in particular sets it apart: the generosity of its forms. This silhouette is distinguished by shoulders and hips of similar width, a clearly defined waistline, and generous breasts and voluptuous curves.
  • O-shape: The curve of your silhouette stretches from your shoulders to your hips. Naturally, your waist is not very pronounced. This is the morphology of luscious figures, with generous breasts and feminine forms.

Have you identified the body type that's right for you? Perfect! Now it's time to find out which types of jeans are best suited to each of these silhouettes.

Which jeans for an A-shaped body?

If you have a figure with generous hips, opt for straight jeans and high waists. This cut, which is fuller around the body, will allow you to enhance your curves in a balanced way. To further harmonize your figure, consider bootcut jeans with flared legs.

Which jeans for a V-shaped body?

For people with a V-shaped body, the aim is to accentuate balance and create a harmonious silhouette. With this in mind, choose girlfriend, bootcut or flare jeans to add volume below the waist. Avoid slim or straight jeans, which are not the most appropriate in this context.

Which jeans for an X-shaped body?

With this type of "hourglass" silhouette, you have the chance to explore a variety of styles. Whether flare, bootcut, mom or slim, the options are endless and almost anything goes! Opt for high-waisted jeans and strategically placed volumes to highlight your natural curves and define your waist.

Which jeans for an H-shaped body?

You want to emphasize your curves. In this case, look for slim or straight jeans, which will fit your figure elegantly and show off your legs to best advantage. Carrot pants, which are wider at the top and tighter at the bottom, are also an excellent choice.

Which jeans for an 8-shaped body?

Like the X-shaped morphology, you have curves and a pronounced waist, allowing you to explore a multitude of styles and cuts. Whatever you choose, denim is sure to complement and enhance your shape. If you want to emphasize the lines of your silhouette, you can opt for slim jeans, which are a sure bet. On the other hand, if you prefer a straighter silhouette, straight-cut jeans should be just what you're looking for.

Which jeans for an O-shaped body?

There's no doubt that high-waisted jeans are your best ally. We recommend mom, carrot or straight-leg jeans, as their high waist emphasizes your hips while elongating your legs. To further accentuate your waist, adding a belt to your outfit is an excellent option. Last but not least, don't hesitate to opt for dark colors to enhance your silhouette.

Which jeans for short legs?

To elongate your silhouette, avoid models that might tend to pack you in, such as flare or bootcut jeans. Instead, opt for a slim or straight, slightly shortened style. By leaving your ankles visible, you'll create the illusion of longer legs, contributing to a sleeker silhouette.

Which jeans for long legs?

Are you lucky enough to have long legs and want to show them off? If so, opt for a slim fit to elegantly emphasize your silhouette. You can also opt for jeans that flare out at the bottom to create a balanced aesthetic. The key here is to choose jeans that hug your hips and thighs harmoniously, to highlight the length of your legs.

What jeans to wear when you're curvy?

If you've got a bit of a belly, a small waist and an O-shaped body, the perfect jeans will be those that emphasize your waist and add a few inches to your stature to enhance your curves. High-waisted jeans have the advantage of sculpting your tummy and thighs. Prefer a slightly shortened straight cut or a pair of bell-bottom jeans to create a more elongated silhouette.

What jeans to wear when you're slim?

If you have a very slim figure, with little chest and hips, there's no need to get lost in a loose fit. To avoid any mistakes, you can choose slim jeans, or mom jeans if you prefer a more casual style. You can also opt for a bootcut that's fitted at the thigh and slightly flared at the bottom. This selection of cuts will enhance your slim silhouette while ensuring a flattering fit.

Which jeans for wide thighs?

When it comes to choosing the right jeans for wide thighs and hips, it's essential to play up the wash. To achieve this, you can opt for a raw bootcut or a dark gray model. Be careful, however, to avoid heavily washed jeans, which are likely to accentuate volumes in an undesirable way. You should also give preference to models with side seams positioned slightly towards the front of the leg. This composition will contribute to a flattering silhouette while adding a touch of style to your curves.

Which jeans for a flat butt?

If you don't have a very rounded bottom, low-rise jeans can instantly create the push-up effect you're looking for. It's all the more satisfying when you consider that this cut is making a comeback in fashion trends after a few years' absence. Choose a model with high, slightly slanted back pockets to create the illusion of a shapelier buttock.

Which pair of jeans for a bubble-butt?

Choose raw or dark denim, and avoid faded models and voluminous pockets to avoid creating an overloaded effect. Our favorite way to show off a bountiful bottom: jeans that rise slightly higher in the back than in the front.

All you need to know about the different cuts of jeans

Now that you know your morphology and the ideal type of jeans for your figure, we'll help you recognize the different cuts of jeans to make sure you don't make a mistake.

  • Straight cut: As the name suggests, this cut offers a straight silhouette from the waist to the ankles. This is the most classic and timeless cut.
  • Bootcut: characterized by a straight line at the thighs, tightening at the knees and flaring at the ankles.
  • Slim fit: This cut is tight all the way from your thighs to your ankles.
  • Couple flare: This resolutely vintage cut features a tight fit from the upper thigh to the knee, then flares out over the rest of the leg.
  • Mom cut: These jeans have a straight cut that stops just above the ankles and is wide at the hips.

As each person is unique, there are no universal rules when it comes to body shape and clothing style. However, by taking into account your own physical characteristics and the fashion tips we've given you, you'll be able to choose a model that will enhance your figure. In the end, the most important thing is to choose jeans that you like and feel comfortable in. So have fun exploring the different possibilities and dare to follow your desires!
