How to Find the Best Jeans for Your Body Type

No jean is created the same. 

You've probably had a few moments of panic in the store as you've shopped for jeans. We cringe when we see the number sizes go up, and we don't understand all the fit descriptions on the advertisements. 

It's time for you to stop sweating every time you start shopping for jeans. Let go of worrying about the numbers, and stop sweating each time you sift through the racks. We're here to help.

Below is a guide on finding the right jeans for your body type. Just trust us on this one. 

Know Your Common Fits

The words on the labels confuse us so we typically ignore them. However, they're important so we should pay extra attention to them. They help us find the perfect jeans for your body type.

If you're wanting something tighter, look for skinny or slim jeans. Skinny jeans will hug your body tightly. Slim jeans are straight and narrow through the waist with an ankle that hugs. 

Grab a pair of regular jeans if you want something that's straight with a mid-waist rise. Keep your eyes out for a relaxed fit if you want a tad bit more room. 

Opt for loose jeans if you're wanting a baggy fit or more room to move around. It's all about personal style. 

Look at the Rise

Now that you know your fits, review your rise. The rise indicates where the waistband will typically sit on your body. 

Low-rise jeans sit below your belly button. They're casual and easy to style. If you have a bigger build, these might not flatter your stomach. 

Go for jeans with a high rise if you're a bigger guy. They're worn above the belly button and go well with a looser-fitting shirt

Mid-rise jeans sit on the cusp of the belly button. These are the jeans you want if you often tuck your shirt in. 

Flatter Yourself

When learning how to choose jeans for guys, flatter yourself. Find inspiration from figures with your body type. Not all styles and colors look great with all figures. 

Tall men typically look best with low to mid-rise jeans. Something too high will make your legs look even longer and throw off proportions. 

Men with larger stomachs and waists flatter themselves most with mid or high-rise jeans. Because they don't sit below the belly button, they appear to be slimming. 

Men with muscular legs should avoid choosing a fit that's too skinny. Something too tight will highlight the legs too much.

Choose the Best Jeans for Your Body Type 

Be comfortable and confident by finding the best jeans for your body type. It's a process of trial and error, but it'll be well worth it. 

Take a look at the fit of the jean because certain fits work better than other for your body. You'll also want to check what the rise of the jean is. Find a pair of jeans that flatters your specific body type.
