Do you know the ‘muffin man’? or more to the point do your jeans and trousers give you a ‘muffin’ look? For those who have not heard of this phrase it refers to women who wear jeans and trousers which are so tight that a roll of excess flesh hangs over the top of the waistband in the same way a muffin rolls over the edge of its paper case! Not very endearing to say the least!
Women of all shapes and sizes can wear jeans and trousers which provide a sleek and elegant look if they choose the right style of jeans to suit their figure.
Those who have a flat bottom can successfully wear tight jeans with a low waistband as these will make their bottom appear fuller. Steer away from high waist bands otherwise your bottom will appear to even longer and flatter! Back pocket detail will also look great on ladies with flat buttocks.
Flat bottoms can be enhanced with the latest ‘butt pads’ for those who want to add some real shape to their bottoms! Alternatively pants which have a lifting effect are ideal for those whose bottom is heading south too quickly! The key factor if you wear either of these under tight jeans is to make sure you don’t end up with the dreaded VPL as this will simply ruin the entire sleek look.
Full bottoms suit both high and low waist jeans. Wear them tight if you are after a Jenifer Lopez style bottom! Along with high heels so that you can really look sassy when you walk!
Those with wide hips should definitely steer well away from jeans which have a low waistband as this style will only make them appear wider. Side pockets on trousers should also be avoided for the same reason.
The best styles for wide hips are those which are wide and straight and have a high waistband. Wide leg trousers are in-vogue in a big way this season along with high waistbands. Wear with high heels to elongate the silhouette and draw attention upwards with tops which are proportionate to the width of your hips.
Ladies who are bottom heavy should opt for straight jeans which are not too tight, remember the ‘muffin’ look is one which should be avoided! Keep away from large back pockets or pockets with embellishments on as these will only draw attention to your ‘problem’ area.
Whether you have a large or small, flat or round bottom, wide or narrow hips there are plus size trousers and jeans available in the high street or online which will flatter your shape beautifully.
